Hello everyone,

here is 2 little duos i composed the last few days for piano and clarinette for christmas. It is supposed to reflect the early romantic-style and was composed in honour of my favourite composer: Mendelssohn. Indeed, the lenght, form and general spirit is heavily inspired of the famous lieder ohne worte. Writing in Mendelssohn style was a good and fun exercise. Any remark/review is welcomed. 🙂

Oh you barely miss the Christmas Event this year!

Duo 1 : A very warm and lovely piece, very attractive! I love how you transit in 0:56 with the light hearted staccato. 

Duo 2: Flowing and moving in the mood, I love this too and provide a good contrast to no.1. 

Overall two lovely little pieces! I love no.1 more since it is warmer for me! Good job @Camfrtt!

First duo: I am no expert in any style and I just have Mendelssohn's piano sonata in G minor in mind but I would dare to say it has some stains of him (0:55). The work is very nicely crafted and engraved, easy to follow and most importantly, the melody flows effortlessly between the piano and clarinet and it is very clear. The ending did not convince me too much but it's just me being too nit-picky. Overall, a solid and beautifully crafted work.

• Second duo: The clarinet sounds very good. I sometimes even listen to the keys being pressed and the air flux, is everything recorded? As I normally listen to digital recordings I just assumed it was one but the clarinet sounds very, very clean and "human" to me. On a first listen, those chords in block near 1:45 were not really convincing me but after a second listen I changed my opinion. Again a very nice work, though I like the first one a bit more. Thank you for sharing both here and enriching this forum with more musical treasures!

Kind regards,
Daniel–Ømicrón.

About the first duo, I completely agree with you and I am kind of dissatisfied with the current ending, I find it to "rythmic" for a piece that is mainly lyric. I will probably change it. About the clarinet sound, I was, just like you, astonished by the realism of Musescore 4 (it is the clarinet Musesound soundfont), there are some imperfections that sounds like a real human is playing the piece! The texture/figure of the chords around 1:45 are typically mendelssohnian and pretty common in many lieder ohne worte 🙂. Thanks for your review Daniel!

So It's Muse sounds! impressive, though I still prefer the piano I have in MS3... But literally every other instrument became 1000 times more realistic, wow.

Please don't hesitate to ping me in this post if you decide to finally change the ending, I would want to listen the new version.

Thank you in advance and kind regards!!
