I have just finished this piece and wanted to share it with you guys/gals for feedback.
Before I started writing this piece I was thinking hard about the theme and emotions for the piece.
I have no idea what theme I actually went with at the end but the emotions I wanted were uplifting and calm..., I guess balanced. Pretty hard for me to explain but I hope it makes a little bit of sense.
I was listening to some John Barry for some inspiration since I remember a certain feeling I used to have when listening to him as a kid. I guess that I felt balanced.
Anyways, I am still learning how to work with my emotions around music and hope that for now this is a ok start.
It is yet again repetitive but I tried to keep it interesting. I personally would like to keep it with this repetition and try to fix all the mistakes I may have done in writing this.
I am mostly skeptical about the Cello and Contrabass section.
No idea if the Cello can handle playing this in p since it is playing pretty low and also playing intervals instead of single notes.
The Contrabass is as usual my biggest worry since I feel like I am just abandoning him there all the way at the bottom without any support from the cello or viola. Especially since it is supposed to be played pizzicato.
The intervals between string sections are pretty big as well and I do not know if it works either. Not sure if I should make the viola and 2nd Violin section play divisi in two voices or not.
Adding more instruments could probably fix a lot of problems but I want to learn how to work with the strings before adding more colors.
Hope this information is sufficient. I got a PDF file attached so you can check the sheet music while listening to the piece.
Thanks for listening and thanks ahead for any feedback and criticism that you may have with this.
