Piece for Orchestra in C major, L8


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Here is a piece I composed for Orchestra. It's likely to become a slow movement for a symphony in G major or possibly the slow movement of an A minor symphony I have coming along.

The movement is in Sonata form.

2nd theme in G major: D, E, F

development:  G-R

1st theme in C major: S, T, U, V

2nd theme in C major: W, X, Y

Ending: Z, AA, BB

 

Enjoy!

You have some great ideas and themes in here! I particularly like the downward progressions as in m. 25. Unfortunately, you weren't able to use the various sections to their fullest capabilities, so your piece suffered a bit from sparse orchestration. There was an extensive amount of doubling, particularly with the cello and basses, but also between the flute and oboe (which were typically separated by an octave). The violas frequently doubled the 1st violins an octave lower, and the poor horns—they only ever got to play whole or half notes! As I said, you have great musical ideas; with more practice and experience, I'm confident you'll be able to flesh those out with better orchestration.

Also, almost all of your harmony was 3rds and 6ths. Nothing wrong with that, it just means you could be a little more adventurous.

Anyway, keep up the good work! Thanks for sharing—I look forward to the next movement!
