Wind choral in GM

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi, here a short piece for wind quartet in ABA form. A has a classical-era choral style, that's why the tittle. B starts with the same lines as A, but in the relative minor (Em) and with a triplet texture on the Bassoon. By the middle of B the triplet rythm extends to all parts with some dialog between Oboe/Clarinet vs. Horn/Bassoon and some inflections to the parallel minor (Gm) after returning to A. 

I appreciate your comments.

This sounds awesome! Congratulations on an accomplished work.

If there is something I would say about the notation, is that it would probably work better if instead of using comas to indicate where to breathe, you could slur where not to breathe. It would make the interpretation on the whole thing a bit clearer. However, if you do chose to slur a section it would be better to slur everything altogether.

Thanks @Jean Szulc. You are right about the notation. I've just correct that on the attachement with the appropiate slurs. 

I have a doubt about that: On bar 17 and 18 D eighth notes played by the horn are slurred, not tied. It appears to be confusing here, so in a first sight they appears to be tied instead of slurred.

Is there a way to avoid misunderstanding between slurred and tied notes when they have the same pitch?

You can add a tenuto mark on the second note if it is a slur and the player will re-articulate the note.

Very nice. No critical comment. It holds together very well.

Congrats!

Beautiful piece. I really enjoyed this. A nice main theme, and well written lines, particularly in the A section. 

The one nitpick I'd have is the translation back to section A, which, for me, could have been smoother. 

Only a minor thing, a truly delightful piece! Congratulations!
