"I very much enjoyed it. You are an amazing talent."

David Lilly replied to William Hu's discussion Four Sketches for Piano
"This was excellent.  The score is obviously not a finished product yet - if you feel it is, I agree it's going to need a lot more as far as dynamics and expressions are concerned. Definitely enjoyed the Scherzo the most. Truly fun to…"

"What a great set, Willliam!  I loved all four pieces!   I thought the little fugue worked splendidly.  The subject was totally recognizable and had interesting angularity.  It's hard to bring out fugue voices on the…"

Paul Copeland replied to William Hu's discussion Four Sketches for Piano
"Hey William,I may be able to add a few observations later in a few days, but wow, if you played that, your technique is very good indeed. I am impressed. Best wishes and keep up the great work. What would be great is a video of the score, and…"

Charles Burns replied to William Hu's discussion Four Sketches for Piano
"Listening to them now.  Lovely work!  More of an engraving thing - I'm not really an expert on piano notation, but I wondered if it wouldn't be helpful to make some of the cross-rhythmic stuff you have going on in the first…"

Manfred Goop replied to William Hu's discussion Four Sketches for Piano
"I love the dynamics of all four pieces, and especially the scherzo. They were a pleasure to listen to. The dynamics were in my humble opinion the best aspect of any of these pieces, though the melodic flow certainly also captured my attention."

William Hu replied to William Hu's discussion Four Sketches for Piano
"Lack of engraving is sort of a bad habit of mine. I tend to get the notes down, add minimal performance markings and then record and move on! I've been told by quite a few people now that I should put in pedal indications / dynamics to…"

Bob Morabito replied to William Hu's discussion Four Sketches for Piano
"These are very nicely done :) And theyre titled as sketches, but perhaps there might have been some dynamics in the score, and less so, possibly even some pedal indications, though in older style music the pedaling might be obvious, and considered…"

Mike Hewer replied to William Hu's discussion Four Sketches for Piano
"Hi William, I enjoyed these pieces. Your writing is idiomatic and very assured and your playing very very good indeed. The prelude was great with shades of Brahms and Chopin and I loved the syncopation. The nocturne had a very nice expression,…"

Four Sketches for Piano

Hullo everyone!I've recently gotten back into the swing of composing after a bit of a dry spell. I'll be posting a few of my latest compositions!This is a set of four very short pieces for piano solo, and here is a link to a video with synchronized score and recording (of a rather tentative performance by yours truly).It comprises of a Prelude, a Nocturne, a Fughetta, and a Scherzo. There's various tidbits that pop up in…See More

Socrates Arvanitakis replied to William Hu's discussion [WIP] Piano Concerto 3rd mvt.
"Hi William, I have listened to it a couple of times and looked through the score. I found all ideas presented very musical and full of development potential. But nothing in its final form as yet. I also think it is very "pianistic", but in…"

Antonio Freixas replied to William Hu's discussion [WIP] Piano Concerto 3rd mvt.
"I tend to be a "slow listener". Some people can hear a piece once and tell you all about the structure of the piece, the themes used and how they were developed, etc. I listened once more and this time I could more clearly make out the…"

William Hu replied to William Hu's discussion [WIP] Piano Concerto 3rd mvt.
"Hi Antonio, Thanks for the comments. I'll be adjusting the speed as I check how it feels when I play it. Sound is just Sibelius midi, converted to mp3 which smooths out the sound. The piece is roughly in A B A Coda form. The A section finishes…"

"Hi, William, I'd love to help and I'm not sure how. This is just the start of a third movement in some larger piece, so there's a lot of context missing. What I hear sounds interesting. I agree with Greg that it's too fast,…"
