  1. Hi all, I've not posted anything in quite some time now so I hope you'll give my new work a chance. I'm at the stage where I would reall like some help before I print off the final draft. Musically I'm pleased with the work and I don't plan any great changes. Obviously I'm open to any comments about the music/musicality of the piece but also, I'm not a great engraver. I would like to know what you think I should amend in the score as much as I would like to know what you think musically. I should explain that this is a 'playback score'. I have sibelius play the music to my piano and I record live to USB from the piano so this isn't a midi sound performance, it's the Yamaha CVP 501 concert grand. To make the 'performance' as human as possible, I do take great pains to make the playback as authentic as I can. That means that there are lots of accents and tenutos, lots of excessive pedal markings and oddly tied notes in some places and also many micro tempo changes that all go towards humanizing the playback. Most of that would not appear in a real performance score. I would like to produce a performance score so if you could look past all the above mentioned and help me out, I would really appreciate it. A bit about the work. It's a suite of short, impressionistic piano pieces under the title - La Dama de Murumendi (The Lady of Wall Mountain). She is an ancient Basque Goddess that rules over the mostly inclement weather of that region. The whole things last 15 minutes so it's not exactly short as a whole but each 'vignette' is only about 3 mins each. The 1st piece is called 'Brisa'. It represents the Goddess in the aspect of the wind. The 2nd piece is called 'Lainoa'. This is the Goddess in the aspect of mist and fog. The 3rd piece is called 'Euria'. The Goddess in the aspect of a rain storm. The 4th piece is called 'Elurra'. It's the Goddess in the aspect of snow and frost. The 5th piece is called 'Berria'. It's the Goddess in the aspect of renewal, the sun finally coming out. I really would appreciate your opinions and any help you could give me. Thanks in advance to anyone who listenes, I appreciate it.

  3. Hi all, I've been composing music for a few years now, but I always did it just for my own entertainment. It's something that I love very much and that really is the only reason I do it. I don't really have musician friends to show my stuff to and after so long tinkering on the piano, there comes a time when you think, well I would like to know if anyone else thinks I actually have any talent for it or is it just in my own mind. Please feel free to say anything that comes to mind, I'm not too precious about it and I will always keep doing what I do no matter if you think it's good bad or indifferent, it will still entertain me equally. At the same time, it is quite scary putting your work out there for all to opine if they feel so inclined, but the desire just to know what others think, has started to out weigh the reticence. So here it is...................... do your worst LOL The first piece is for solo piano - La Marioneta. I'm reasonably pleased with this, but it has it's problems. I'll leave it to you without saying too much about it just now. The second piece is an orchestrated piano piece - Lucia. Again it has it's problems but I am reasonably pleased with it, and again I'll not say too much to influence anyone just yet, just to say that the Lucia in question is Donizetti's Lucia Di Lammermoor. While the piece has nothing to do with Donizetti's masterpiece, it's an imagining of how a ballroom scene might go if she were to waltz off to the ball with the blood still on her hands. I do tend to have the attitude that my work is very rarely completely finished, or at least to say that from time to time I do go back and revise work as and when the inspiration strikes. Both of these pieces have had revisions and are now at a state where I feel they are approaching the finish line, but sometimes when you live with a piece for so long, it's hard to see (or hear) it, as others do, and they may see things that could be improved that I may not. For this reason I've uploaded them both here. The scores are available if anyone would like to see them then I will upload them too. Thanks in advance to anyone who might leave me some words of advice, they will be very gratefully received. Best regards Mark
