Duet for piano and flute

This duet has the form of a song with singable themes. Actually I have here borrowed a theme from my countryman LE Larsson, it has to be said. Maybe you have heard it, it is a rather famous tune.

I hope you like this rather simple piece and give it a comment.

Greetings!

  • This is simply AMAZING. I love the twists and turns this makes. You certainly have a gift for intertwining parts. 

    Liked on Soundcloud. Thanks for sharing this very peasant listen!

  • I am glad to hear that, Timothy. Thank you.

  • Hi Kjell,

    Your piece uses rhythmic patterns which to me sounded like old French music (sorry I could not

    recall but probably Gothic period).  This reduces the contrast but still the middle section and return

    can be perceived.  It certainly has an adhered style.

    I woud suggest to break down the mp3 to small pieces and then play with the pan (spatial spread)

    and then combine them to a single mp3 with audacity.  It would be livelier as if 'this time it comes

    from here or there'... Just a suggestion.

    Also may be loudness can be varied...

    The root material is beautiful that can be easily appreciated.

    All the best.

    Ciao.

  • Hello Kjell!

    It’s fastlane(Phil) from the Garritan forum.bye bye :(

    i enjoyed your Duet for Piano and Flute. The constantly changing emotions forces the listener to listen closely to catch what you are communicating. You do still have that northern countries style that I could probably identify the composer with. Maybe. 

    Technically it sounded fine. Maybe there could be a little more separation of the flute and piano but you don’t want them too far apart either. 

    Good work!

  • Hi Ali,

    thanks for your comment and suggestions. I will look into that panning and see if it improves.

    Cheers,

  • Hi Phil, so nice to hear from you and welcome to the forum, just as nice atmosphere here as in NS bye bye.

    Thank you for your comments, much appreciated. Seems it coincides with Ali´s remark so I can try some better panning.

    I look forward to listen to your work. I will also try to invite Jos Wyslin, our valuable friend.

    Cheers,

  • Hi Kjell,

    A lovely piece. Engaging harmonies and melody slightly on the melancholic side (to me) by it's moderate simplicity - although I particularly liked the development and adventurous modulations at roughly 2 and 3 minutes in.

    Well done.

    Dane.

  • Thank you Dane,

    yes it is simple, it is really a direct transcript of a song.

  • Hi Kjell,

    Such a brilliant piece. I like it a lot, probably because of the melancholic undertone and the Scandinavian feel. I don't know how to describe it, but I'm alway experience this when I listen to Grieg's music. It's a very specific atmosphere that is so hard to describe in words. And you've got it as well. Naturally!

  • Hi Jos and welcome to the forum.

    Thank you very much for your lovely comment. I got plenty of Grieg scores when I was a child. My aunt, fully Norwegian (whereas I am just half Norwegian), adores Grieg. I never really fancy his music so much but probably it has influenced me.

    I guess you are the one person in the world that could make this identification.

    Cheers,

    Kjell
