1st Invention


Recommended Posts

Practicing counterpoint after a long time of inactivity. Thus started with something simple. I have been composing for 8 months and have been inactive for the past 3-4 months. Suggestions on improvements would be appreciated.

I like it. It's a nice exercise in counterpoint. I'm no expert on the rules relating to this as it's something I learnt years ago. What I really loved were the syncopated bits around bar 18 et seq. You could use that more, it was really nice. It put me in mind of "Bach Goes to Town" by Alec Templeton and maybe "Handel in the Strand" by Percy Grainger. Do you know them? They're really great. Hope this helps. You've only been composing for a relatively time but keep at it. I'd like to hear more.
