Hello, fellow composers. I have the next few months free to compose so I started on a project called "Hither and Yon." It will be a collection of orchestral "songs." They may be from disparate genres, styles and instrumentation, I don't know. Wherever the wind takes me, I suppose. I'd like to get at least 7 songs and here is the first.

I will post scores, but not right away. Thanks and leave a comment or two if you like ...

Very nice. It sounds as a dance. Good start  with winds as en han emergido with strings sections al 1:00 and Melody with strings then. The textura thicknens andina color and direction. Countermelodies are everywhere in this part, with spicing winds.  Really, a beautiful work.

Lovely little work. I rather admire your what sounds like intentional clashes of leading tone voicing leading over or under alternatively applied harmony.

Thanks for listening. This piece was fairly restrained in terms of material, but there were a lot of voices and they are moving all the time. So I had to manage relative degrees of dissonance while keeping a meaningful line going. When the texture gets thicker and the voices increase, there are clashes, as you say,  but they are just temporary dissonances. They are acceptable because there are voices moving alongside them that repair them and they are all moving in and out of dissonance. But the harmonic progression, which was fairly simple, was firmly established before the voices pile up. That was necessary I think.
