Sam Umar replied to David Carovillano's discussion When Doubt Arises
"Just listened to the first movement. I hear it as a conversation or even a debate between the involved instruments, especially the piano and the clarinet in the beginning, before cello and violin commenting them. The 2nd movements, with it's…"

"I'm flattered if I can play any role in encouraging you to continue composing. I know that none of us posting here is likely to attract a mass audience so of course appreciation from those who may have similar tastes or aims is always heartening.

"Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Ingo.  You know, I think your idea for a Ravel-type orchestration is a distinct possibility in the future.  I've often thought about re-visiting certain pieces to re-imagine them (did this once with my Twilight of…"

David Carovillano replied to Ingo Lee's discussion Chamber orchestra with guitar UPDATED
"Hi Ingo,
I listened to your piece, and definitely vibed with it.  As Dane so astutely observed, it really did feel like an unsettled dream.  You have received some excellent feedback from fellow forum members, who have done a much better job…"

"Thank you for taking the time to listen and comment, Ingo.  It was a bit of effort :)  The strings are virtual (VSL).  I'm working on a few albums concurrently, and I'll say this about pieces like Circus of the Mind:  I'm glad I've waited many years…"
