"Some original chord progressions make this an interesting piece, as I never could predict exactly where you might go next. So it held my intention, even expressionism is generally not my cup of java. On the more critical side, I could have used more…"

"Hi Gav, I understand where you're coming from, but I haven't heard that piece before. Rather interesting. Hindemiths single movement operas had a huge influence on this piece, as well as Berg (especially his Op.1 Sonata) and…"

"I took your criticism to heart and deleted the quote, I think you are right. Just like it has always bothered me that Mahlers first is subtitled "The Titan", which never made sense to me. It's just that sometimes I feel like my…"

"I find this both impressive and emotionally engaging.  I thought the slow, inexorable increase of tension in the middle part especially effective. I'm not sure though if the quote makes for a good program note.  Its relevance to the…"

"Hello Jan Paul, nice and interesting again! The piece seems to follow its concept with iron consequence. And again the tone seems to fit the attitude of Hesses poems very well. Kind regards, Jan"

Chromatic Counterpoint | Intermezzo

Hello dear people,I wanted to share with you my Intermezzo which is part of a Liederzyklus on poems by Hermann Hesse. The compositional technique of this composition stems from baroque fugal writing combined with the chromatic style of the late romantic to expressionist era. The sheet music is visual in the video. Thanks for your engagement and a happy new year!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xq2CgeINY6MSee More

"Hello Jan Paul, it seems to me a very congenial musical version of the wonderful poem. I can say that I enjoyed listening to it very much. The "message" of Hesse, but also the general feeling around the words is transported very…"

"This is splendid, and what an art song should be.  The instrument supports the vocal, and the vocal supports the lyrics, which are prominent and perfectly clear throughout.  The rather meandering piano, spiked with carefully placed…"
