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
