Ingo Lee replied to Albert de la Fuente's discussion Finale of a string sextet. Beginning
"With your talent and skill I think it would be interesting to see what you would do in a free form environment.  Coltrane himself went from 'coltrane changes' to a much wilder approach that cost him quite a few followers; dangerous ground indeed!"

"Thanks, Ingo! Indeed, the rondo mold is a bit restrictive. I'm not very satisfied with repeating the main theme verbatim so many times when it already has some internal repetition. That probably gives the piece the formality you mention. I've also…"

"Hi Albert, I'm sorry I have an empty comment above, I think the server dropped it but I'm not sure what happened.
What I had said was that this piece is very catchy and enjoyable as you say. It is very well written, it reminds me a little bit of…"

Ingo Lee replied to Albert de la Fuente's discussion Finale of a string sextet. Beginning
"This is very catchy as you say Albert and rondo fits well here.  It reminds me of Golliwogg's Cakewalk with maybe a taste of Gershwin and then it gets a bit Strauss like with a modern sounding fragment at the end. Either the cakewalk or waltz groove…"

Albert de la Fuente replied to Albert de la Fuente's discussion Finale of a string sextet. Beginning
"Here's my progress so far: Videoscore.

I've decided a sonata form's a bit too "heavy" for a finale, I don't want to overwhelm the listener after the intensive cerebral pounding previous movements. Instead, I'll lay out the finale in rondo form…"

Albert de la Fuente replied to Albert de la Fuente's discussion A little symphonic poem
"Thanks Sahir! You're right, I kind of rushed a bit the process when writing the ending. Actually, I wanted the piece to end in the same key as the beginning, but just didn't know how to proceed, so I left the music as it was. I don't discard…"

Sahir Haider replied to Albert de la Fuente's discussion A little symphonic poem
"What a marvellous piece !  I loved most of it. The transitions are so seamless. Your gift for painting pictures through music is quite evident.  The only tiny bit of "critique" I have is regarding the very ending (last few seconds) which I found a…"

Jan-Frederik Carl replied to Albert de la Fuente's discussion A little symphonic poem
"Hello Albert,
hearing your piece, I get angry, angry with myself that I cannot achieve something similar. The textures seem to be very clear, and what wonderful melodies. Have to take a deeper look.
Thanks for sharing.
Jan"

"This is very impressive Albert, well written and orchestrated.  Clearly your study and work have paid off well.  I too had trouble with the player stopping early for some reason, I'll reload and try again. This is great use of NotePerformer as well,…"
