This piece is supposed to mimic the idea behind Vivaldi's Four Seasons. The clash between harmony, creativity and rationality. The strings are at war with the flute.  It's my uncompleted second attempt at composing but I want you to listen to it.

  • Thank you for sharing this with us.

    I have to say, the music is definitely baroque inspired (a kind of modern baroque) and the flute plays this music perfectly.

    The midi mockup is horrible, and the strings overshadow the flute.

    Nevertheless, this is good music...do you plan to finish it, or is it already finished.....i would love to hear the rest.

    Best,

  • Thank you. 

    I will finish it today as I have some free time. The beginning starts with an Andalusian Cadence that is too linear and the Harpsichord does indeed sound terrible against the strings. There's a point in the middle when an idea ends arbitrarily - I will extend the idea and form a bridge between the later idea in the piece. This way, I'm pretty confident it will have some sense of forward momentum and direction. 

    Nevertheless, I am a novice and you must understand that this is my second attempt at composing! I compose for sheer enjoyment; as do most I presume.

  • I finished the first movement of the Flute Concerto in A minor. I'm not happy with it but it's a decent framework to work with. 

    Here it is:
