'Death of Ophelia' for piano quartet

Recommended Posts

I composed the theme of Ophelia's painting, a masterpiece of John Everett Millais. Ophelia is one of the characters in Shakespeare's play 'Hamlet', who was caught up in the tragic situations of the work and became mad, drowned while making a flower crown by the stream. Ophelia in the painting looks so beautiful at first glance, but the sadness and tragic situation of Ophelia impressed me! So I combined the beauty of the painting with the tragic situations of Ophelia and expressed it in this piece!

That's a pretty cool piece! Very romantic, and it sounds very professionally orchestrated, also the harmonies and melodies are very creative. I'm reminded of some British late-romantic chamber pieces, like the "Phantasy"-pieces by Frank Bridge for example. I don't know why this piece hasn't gotten more comments. I enjoyed it, and it's always nice to encounter a new beautiful piano quartet. Thanks for posting!

What a well crafted and enjoyable work this is ... the engraving is beautiful to behold.  The music tells the story well and is balanced.  It easily carries the listener along for the journey.  The harmonic changes are seamless and the rhythmic variations in good proportion.  I really enjoyed following along with the score ... it is so well written.  Well Done!

I thought about how to convey the message to the listener in this piece musically, but I'm glad that the intention was well conveyed! Thank you so much for leaving a good comment!☺️

Beautifully written and it tells the story so nicely and precisely without ever being shallow or merely descriptive. I particularly enjoyed the harmony instability in the flowers section, and the theme is memorable and powerful. Thank you!

 

There has been a lot of effort and research to convey the message in this piece, and I'm proud that you recognized it. Thank you for enjoying it! (I like the flower part the most, too. 😄)
