Composers' Forum

Music Composers Unite!

Here's a piece to we don't often hear on the forum, something to contrast the epic bombast, something sweet and sad. This is the only tearjerker in my musical. Hope you like it and comment.

Thanks, Lawrence. I really like this one.

Yo L- man, just my amateur 2 cents bubba, it was good til min. 1:47 then  huh? the transition needs to be enhanced.

On the whole, you did not capture and maintain a 'uniform frequency' ( IF you know what I mean ) of 'spirit'. That essence greater than the sum of it's parts. Honestly, I heard Roman Orthodox ... fade to Greek Mediterranean. Pasta primavera, with a slice of baklava   lol    

I remember those pieces, but how long ago was that, seems like over a year.  The ratio of loud and bombastic to sweet and sad is probably 50 to 1.

I could repost the various pieces associated with the death of my parents, if you feel sweet and sad is in short supply. 

It goes from G maj. to the relative E min., not so unusual, but this is opera, it's supposed to be dramatic.  Thanks for listening (I think.)

  I was off the forum for a week or so, (as in rehabbing from an overdose.)   Actually I attended my daughter's wedding.  When I left, Bob was arguing with Roger.  When I came back Bob was arguing with Roger.  Did I miss anything while I was away?  Thanks for listening.

Same old stuff. Congrats on surviving the wedding.

One man's arguing is another man's working toward clarity. The only thing you missed was dave getting scolded

again for personal attacks. Did you see the latest memo from Brother Big?

dave, I'm not taking sides and don't really care to be involved in your dispute with Bob M. I merely pointed out

somewhat in jest, that we've all been warned about 'personal attacks' in this forum. It's as simple as A B C.

ps- just be more subtle  lol     Blessed are the peacemakers     don't forget that   bro

And me shutting down Morabito's claims of having lost me work because my prospective clients apparently seek him out for the lowdown on my personal attacks, don't forget that.

Hi Lawrence--I enjoyed this very much, and I agree its a shame that we dont hear very much of this kind of work on the forum here. Hopefully that'll change.

I do feel its much harder to write a slow pretty piece that keeps ones attention, versus writing loud crashing music--but youve done it here, and did it quite well.

Thanks for posting :)

Bob,

     I think this piece was easier to write than to sing considering the long sustained notes,  the higher range, and slow tempo.  Thanks for your comments.
