Desperation in Gm

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Here my new composition for Chamber string orchestra and some short solo parts. The style is clearly Baroque inspired.

I'm not sure if the doble notes in the same instruments should be divisi or non divisi, since I don't play any bow instrument. I think the double notes on viola accompaniment should better be played as divisi, but I'm not sure.

Is it always needed in baroque music to indicate "div."/"non div." on the score, or the players/director would know in any case what's better or technically possible?

I mean depending on the interval could be some technical limitations for the players.

Any comments are wellcome!

This is very beautiful in the style.

I would check all those double stops. The octaves in the cello are not necessary, and the viola .... I don't know, I would have put a divisi indication.

This sounds really good, and I think you handled it very well.

I agree with that. However, not having the violas play divisi might have a distinct sound and may be very pleasant. Maybe asking to play both the notes on the double-stop as being sort of arpegiated would be a nice touch. Like this:

Thanks Luis and Jean for listening and giving your feedback.

I think I will add some divisi indications. About the non divisi effect on the viola I have to check how it sound like...but I don't know if it fits to the staccato acompaniment, and if my VST can reflect the effect of a life performance....
