Just finished my first trio.
As most of you know, I am quite sensitive and therefor I have strong feelings easily. About a year ago, I met a young woman, who is now a good friend of mine, and vice versa. Over time, I got stronger feelings for her then she for me, or so I believe. She is not into more then frendship, so I prefer to stay in the 'friend zone', as it is called. I enjoy doing things together friends do, like shopping, talking, going out for a walk... Things like that. I enjoy her company.
But... I had to do something with my feelings,so I desided to write her this trio. She knows nothing about it, by the way, but anyway I did. As I mentioned, it is a trio. For flute, F-horn and cello.
As most of you know, my music tends to be slow. So is this piece: q=72, in 3/4, F minor (I believe it is in minor). It completely voices my feelings, that is, the sad feelings of the unanswered love. It does not voice the joy I feel when we are together, that will be another piece later, I suppose... This is about missing, not about joining.
Well... There are two questions I have on beforehand:
1. In measure 29/30, I let the cellist play double stops. I happen to know that m.29 will not be a real problem. But in m.30 the D4/F4 will change into B3/D4 and I do not know if that is playable.
2. In m.38 I have a strange sound. The horn is clearly playing below the cello. Is that the problem, or will it sound better in real life? If not, please try to find a solution with me. I want it to be low, there.
One more thing... It is instrumental, but some phrases, like where the flute comes in on m.45, until m.51, are actual phrases voiced on text (English). Yes, I know m.50 and 51 are an inversed chord and it sounds strange, not to say horrible. That was intentional.
Mind the last two measures. I did that on purpose.
