"I write a lot of verse in English and Greek (and occasionally in Italian), German I cannot handle, though plenty of my heroes are Germanic in character (or at least Gothic) and most of it is about romance. I don’t have time to set all that…"

Looking for Poetry to write a Romantic Lied.

Good evening fellow musicians, I'm opening this discussion asking for help, hoping that this is the right subforum to post in.I am looking for poetry (German) to write a lied to, the problem is, I'm pretty ignorant and my online search attempts didn't find anything useful... I'm looking for very melancholic and desperate Lyrics, not too modern tho..(For example I really like the lyrics in Mahler's Kindertotenlieder)See More

"I like this. You obviously have a good sense of timing. The end is nice, but I would have preferred you to stay in character :-)"

"I think this is quite a good composition. If you wanted you could develop the theme more, but I don't see any very important reason why you should. I think the middle part is solid, and the ending is interesting. You lost my attention towards…"

"couldn’t agree more, Teoh, about the b4 Bach modal contrapuntal tradition (and use of authentic and plagal modes where the 4th degree in many cases is considered as dominating the whole process). My only regret regarding that ancient tradition…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Lurian's discussion Fugue in Bb major on an italian drinking song.
"Actually, real tradition (i.e., pre-Bach) has fugue answers coming in all sorts of intervals. I took Kristofer's advice to take a look at Pachelbel's fugues in Magnificat, and found that, indeed, he has expositions with all kinds of…"

"Tradition says to answer in the dominant (or tonic) and establish both gravitational centres, but we can cheat a bit, can't we? :-)"

"So, I tried do make a real amswer as Teoh suggested to preserve completely the theme, thank you  for your solution it works fine but to me musically it's not satisfying because it deforms the countersbuject"

Mike Hewer replied to Lurian's discussion Fugue in Bb major on an italian drinking song.
"Hi Lurian, FWIW I like your answer as it retains one of the 2 charming minor 3rd intervals (dominant to mediant). Nothing wrong with HS's solution so it is all down to what you might consider important when retaining the subjects shape - what…"

I am a 18 year old violinist, I got into composition kinda randomly, I took some harmony classes and that´s where I discovered my passion and started studying at home by myself many books, I am self taught, so I hope I can learn from the people on this site and share the knowledge I have gained in my studies. I have been composing only for myself and for close friends.
