Isolation - Strings


Recommended Posts

A very sad and despairing piece.  Is there also a harp in this?  It seems that it plays a very minor role.  But it does lend the melody a certain punctuation and accent - makes it better heard than if it were played by strings alone.

I've heard it said that we as composers need to isolate sometimes to get any work done on our music!  LoL  Thanks for sharing.

Lovely melody and mood! I like it. I love the section around 1:20 when the melody moves to low strings.

I actually agree with Peter. Adding harp for me will diminish the depressing sound and add some hope in it. I think an all bowed strings sound will be even better.

That's so true! we just have to make sure we are just alone, not lonely though.

@PeterthePapercomPoserThanks a lot, Peter, for listening and comment. actually there is a piano sound that copying the first violins, you may have heard it like a harp because its sound is low.(the sound delay in short notes in strings led me to this, but harp is a better idea) Harp could have been good on this piece indeed, I will consider this

Actually this is what I wanted, but I agree the harp will support the atmosphere of the piece, thank you for your opinion
