These concertos are really cool! I want to learn the Italian style of composition. I can hear a craftsman at work in the pieces, very impressive. :)

Thank you!

I really like this Baroque Era Style music, especially the Italian artists such as Vivaldi And Albinoni and Solomon Rossi.

Glad you enjoyed them.

Best Wishes

Saul

Hello Saul,

Undoubtedly this is professional work, showing real mastery of typical Italian style features. Yet at the same time it sounds a bit unreal to me, because it repeats a historical style, that culturally died out centuries ago, in a very different context. What is your own perspective on this? 

I often struggle about the question how to compose "in times such as this", and I'm glad to find someone who has the courage to write tonal music. For I think the atonal avant garde has no cultural future. Yet my intuition says me it is impossible to simply  to return to styles of the past.

But perhaps that's not your problem at all :) I enjoyed listening to this piece and admire your craftmanship.

Hi Geert,

Thank you for your kind comments, glad you liked the music.

I think every composer is different, and everyone connects to different things, tastes, styles etc. 

I believe a composer should compose the music that they like, feel connected to, and are inspired with.

All other considerations as : "Yet my intuition says me it is impossible to simply  to return to styles of the past" are irrelevant when one has a good time and enjoys what they do, and if others also connect with it and like it , more the better.

Regards,

Saul
