I am new to the forum. It is wonderful to be able to share music and ideas about music and send it to the World via the computer and internet.
I have been writing music for the piano using Finale. I do not have any acoustic performance of the music yet and have given it only to friends. I would welcome any comments about the music. I am not sure how to upload the music so it can be heard. It is on "my page". If it cannot be played, any suggestions on where to upload it would be appreciated.
The music is notated for piano, but I do not have dynamic markings entered yet. The score is played by the Garritan Orchestra from Finale first on piano, and then the same piece by Garrtan full strings both from the piano score.
I sometimes think the music would sound better with a string orchestra. Since it is played by the computer without expression, it is difficult for me to decide whether it would sound better on strings or piano since I do not yet have an acoustic performance of either. It is written for piano. Garritan is doing the work of playing the score from the piano score. Thank you for any comments.
Just wanted to thank Greg for your comment. It was very helpful. I did rent a harpsichord for a year and fell in love with it. The piece was written when I had the harpsichord. I know I should not keep switching Garritan instruments, but I will add the piece played by Garritan harpsichord.
