Music Composers Unite!
Hi, hope you are all well! I know it's been a while since I've posted anything– just been busy here. Seems there's a lot of fugues going around too :)
Anyway, I'm now finished with this concerto and wanted to post it here. Feel free to let me know your thoughts! Unfortunately, I don't have a recording yet, but will have one in a few months...

Thanks for the suggestions! In the first entry point, I wanted the violin to blend with the rest of the ensemble, and be more prominent when it plays alone. As for tempo variation, I think part of the issues in organicism come from the midi playback, but will think on your suggestion. I wanted that to sound floating, as you said. As for quarter tones, there might be a way... but for now, I have other projects that need to be worked on first, before going back and messing with the playback. I do have a live performance waiting, after all, and that will clear up any playback issues.
Thanks for your reply, Lara.
It helps me understand the work better. I look forward to hearing the live performance. Good luck on that. I am very interested to hear the use of the quarter tones in context.
