"Pleasant piece. No criticism. Very good use made of the thematic material - one might almost safe efficient - which makes you an ef-Fish-in-C expert! (Sorry...ok, there's a plaice for everything...not here!)  It's moving between the…"

"Beautifully done and rendered Sassyfrood, if you told me it was Mozart I would never question it, of course I'm certainly not a Mozart expert by any means but very well done by any standard. Thanks for posting!"

"Well, if an instrument was truly solo then there would be no issue of ensemble errors, right? The timing errors are minute, you wouldn't notice them in a solo instrument as being out of rhythm. But in a small ensemble like four strings, it…"

"That's not ideal! Does it perform differently when you use solo string instruments instead of the ensemble groups? That said, with NP I found I liked solo violin trills much better without the trill"

"Hi Dan, Yes, the way Arne explained it, it is because the NotePerformer AI algorithms create random timing shifts for instruments that normally play en masse such as strings. Wind and brass players aren't massed together even in an orchestra,…"

"Hi liz, thanks, and glad you liked it!  So, yes, I have noticed less than ideal behaviour with slurred passages, but I think I noticed that more on the strings to the woodwinds. Try exporting your piece with woodwind instruments instead? …"

"I echo Gabriele's reaction, Dan. This is simply a stunning re-creation of a classical style, with some modulations and turns of phrase that Mozart might not have conceived of, brilliantly worked out and scored. I see you use Sibelius and…"

Gabriele replied to Sassyfrood's discussion Piano Chamberto in Eb Major
"Wow, that is for sure another great work. Love the idea! I feel your music, so positive (although this is not the right time for using this term, maybe :D), relaxing would perfectly fit movie soundtracks as well."

"Hi Gabriele,  Thanks for your kind words. What would you suggest as a good next challenge for me, bearing in my my current style ? I've started to write scores to accompany free nature footage (first attempt…"

Gabriele replied to Sassyfrood's discussion Piano Chamberto in Eb Major
"Although I found this music genre has very little to say nowadays, I'm actually astonished by your composing skills. So many elegant modulations, perfectly designed and functional. I wish I had your music knowledge. Great work!"

Sassyfrood replied to Sassyfrood's discussion Piano Chamberto in Eb Major
"Thanks both, really glad you enjoyed it!  I use Sibelius and Noteperformer, works surprisingly well with no configuration required (beyond detailed scoring!)"
