Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Comments are always appreciated good or bad, with thanks. I don't shy away from bad crit.

Not sure what key it's in though my notation stuff assures me it's C major even if it isn't. However, it isn't atonal, just shifts around.

beat. Light and air and renewal.

I posted it here as it probably would need a conductor because of the time sig changes. Spring burgeons with no fixed rhythm although there's a

Not a lot to say about it. Primavera = Spring. The first of some seasonal pieces. Written a couple of months ago touched up today.

this is enchanting. kaleidoscopic, but not too random. The way you are able to modulate is very refreshing. I am a new listener now, I have learned something. That's the kind of music I like. Good job.

LoL - I love how you reversed your score order in response to the debate about the chat window hah.  The piece is really cool - many parts of it remind me of John Williams' score to Episode I - The Phantom Menace for some reason.  Your use of Bass Clarinet for instance before 0:20.  Really cool and playful piece!  Thanks for sharing!

Thank you kindly for that. Pleasing to think it was listenable to (if you'll pardon my rotten grammar)! The scoring is fairly conventional but needs only a small ensemble.

Again, thanks.

Hahaha! Yes. It was for those who can't escape reading from the bottom up.

And thank you for your kind comments. I'm a great fan of the bass clarinet and often score it in preference to the bassoon. It has a big expressive range and gets down to a super pianissimo if need be.

I don't know about John Williams... I worried that it had hints of Prokofiev though, like the Love of Three Oranges Suite. I don't often turn to Prokofiev but as I tarted it up I had to wonder.

However, thanks again. Much appreciated.

That's a fun quirky piece! The disjunct phrases are interesting but not confusing.

I tried to review the music in terms of orchestration, but the upside-down score gave me a headache 😆

I like the lyrical textures in this piece. Your orchestration is really colorful and the interaction between instruments is well balanced.

 

Thank you for listening through and your generous comment. Much appreciated.

Quirky? A bit like spring itself (here in the UK at least! But thank you for your comment.

Sorry about the score. It gave me a headache engraving it upside down! but then there are those in the chat-box who like to read things from the bottom up! I hoped it would be easier for them!!!

Nice piece! I sounds modern, beautiful and interesting.

Thank you Luis. The generosity of your comment is most encouraging. Pleased that you found it listenable.

Please forgive combining my responses in a single post. I wanted to avoid a string of replies making the thread longer than necessary. I appreciate all your commentary; am never one to shy away from negative crit if necessary.

Thank you.
