0 First Light - for string quartet and English horn Posted by Lennart Östman on November 3, 2019 at 8:18pm in Music Analysis and Critique This is the opening track from my latest album, Music for tired Preachers. It’s a suite that has the string quartet and the English horn as a thematic thread. Sometimes together and sometimes with an orchestra. https://soundcloud.com/lennartostman/english-horn-quintet-andante Views: 3 You need to be a member of Composers' Forum to add comments!

it cloaks itself in a nice, may I say, "baroque", atmosphere. The tension is never lost. Seeing the score would definitely be interesting.
It is a pleasant enough piece as it stands, but I think the horn is hiding too much in the background. To my mind it should have a stronger melodic presence than it currently has and should "boss" the strings a bit more.
