Rondo Violin & Cello in Bb


Recommended Posts

Here my new classic rondo in ABACABA' form. A has more a melody and accopaniment texture, while B and C have more counterpoint texture with some rythm and interval interplay violin-cello. 

Hope you enjoy it. Any comments are more than wellcome.

Nice work. Well formed and a good interplay between the instruments. The light articulations give it a bounce. Like PaperComposer, I liked the ending. A bit of a teaser - suspense awaiting the final bars. The variations in dynamics also seem to work well....

Great.

Nice job!  I thought the coda/extension was a really creative way to end the piece.  This seems to have the character/flavor of a minuet.  Quite enjoyable!

 

Hi @PaperComposerThanks for the feedback, I'm happy you like that. Yes, I finished the last bars with a Fugato using the head of the main Theam with some cadences over the dominant to prepare the final cadence. I wan't sure to write it in 3/8 or 3/4. It could be a minuet as you say, but I see the tempo slightly faster, that's why I chose 3/8.

Hi @Quinn, In that piece I took my time to look at the detail of the articulation and I think it worth it, specially bow instruments have quite a big range of articulations and playing techniques and it makes a difference with you spend some time in the details. When I wrote my Symphony two months ago, I wrote it much faster, but not looking that deeply in the articulations, so I wanted to focus more on that with that Rondo.

Amazing! I love it! Really beautiful counterpoint! 🙂 I love the melodic motives from 1:00 and 1:15 and how you restate them several times in a row!

 

Hi @JorgeDavid, the section you mention is basically a big half-cadence of Gm, preparing the secundary Theam with a DM chord:

V (4bar cello), II-V (2x), VII-I (2X) & V (4bars violin-cello)

Nice. Delicate and intricate, good job interweaving the parts and motives. I could see this having been composed by a big name

 

Thanks @Left Unexplained! I love how big classical composers can combine naivity and drama in one single piece, and that's what I tried 🙂

I really enjoyed this piece, it deserves to be performed although your midi device has excellent strings. I think the time you spent on articulation paid off, it sounds really authentic of the period. If this had a big name on the manuscript I wouldn't have questioned it. I particularly liked the effect created by the simple descending quaver repeats of the cello. The counterpoint is spot on, its beautiful and the last bar is a delight. Overall it captures the elegance of the classical period, well done!

thats great advice and we will keep to that , thank you for the help paper composer . the composition was by my 9 year old daughter in the photo, it was improvised although she does write them as well, (if you would like to cover your more than welcolme ) 

I listened with her to the rondo on this thread . it was sophisticated and elegant , really very listenable and quite cool. a great chorus .  what brought us to enjoy this forum is she has been studying galant, partimento  and early/ newer classical  composition since very little . this was one of the few places people enjoyed durante . thank you for the kind welcome.
