composition exercise

Recommended Posts

I’m trying to compose with counterpoint.

The music's quite nice though more attention to dynamics might help. The Alberti bass otherwise starts to lose interest. Might be an idea to phrase the cello part so you could introduce some variation in delivery. Is each 4 note group meant to be legato or detaché?

It also needs lengthening which would allow the thematic material to be developed. Where the opening style reverts 3 bars from the end there is a case for repeating more of the opening but with some variation a) either in the cello or b) with the cello carrying the tune and the violin doing the accompaniment but a little more elaborate or imaginative than that Alberti-styled base.

Let's hope others appear to help with music 'jotter' (I presume you mean).
