Dimitris Chrisanthakopoulos replied to Mike Hewer's discussion Prelude and Fugue no.2 for piano
"Wow! This is trully written by a steady hand, solid craftmanship, a small gem! I like the idea of combining differnet elements like an acid-jazz-not-to-tonal prelude with a fugue (well, a little "free" for a strict fugue but who cares). And I love…"

Dimitris Chrisanthakopoulos replied to H. S. Teoh's discussion Fugue in C# minor
"Neat fugal writing, and the theme is really beautiful, well done! It reminded me of Bach's G minor in the WTC I with those rests you are using ;) Writing a fugue and making it sound interesting is not an easy feat, and maybe some parts (7-13 eg.)…"

"I'm not an expert composer so I will leave deconstruction to @Dave and others (though I might be a little more of an expert in deconstruction - my master's thesis was about deconstructing Nietchze's Birth of Tragedy - still cant spell his name…"

Dimitris Chrisanthakopoulos replied to Yoshed's discussion Mano del Desierto
"Lovely atmosheric piece! The hand in the desert!
I wouldn't go that heavy on the reverb, especially in the solo piano parts, it sound a little to drowned for my taste, but then, that's just taste.
Bravo!"

"I have to addmit that reading through those posts I almost forgot to write about Fredrick's piece! You've got to love those discussions that start with something and end up being about anything! :p
Anyway, this is a really lovely piece, neat…"

"@Fredrik Sure it does! I've only been in Croatia for 10 days this summer myself :)
@Nikola Yes, it doesnt really... Although Greek and Croatian (Balkan) music in general have a lot in common this in neither Greek nor Balkan music. It was not…"

"nice Dimitris, very evocative. Just one thing, put the string section at the bottom of the score - that's  the way its done usually.

Dimitris Chrisanthakopoulos replied to adib najjar's discussion I dont get how to get my compositions to the next level
"Totally agree with @Bod...
You have a voice, everyone does. Don't try to write in an idiom that is not yours. If you like tonal music write tonal stuff. If you like short pieces don't try to write one hour long symphonies.

I'm not saying you should…"

"Thank you for the replies!

@ Bod thx for listening. Some record-company-guys acctually were more insterested in the instrumental version than the full song. 2 different persons from different companies told me to look into synchronization/licencing…"

Gavin Brown replied to Dimitris Chrisanthakopoulos's discussion Instrumental - The Show Went On
"Hi Dimitris,
This has some things to recommend it - overall nice instrumentation, a pleasant feel, nice chord progressions. It seems light on melody, but that can work for movie music, especially when the music is being used as a backdrop to support…"

Prelude-like, nice harmonies, nice modulation!... If I had to make a suggestion I could only say why not experiment with th LH. acompaniament a little more? especially if you xrite something longer or develop this one more"

Dimitris Chrisanthakopoulos replied to Greg Brus's discussion Working title: Plains 01
"Very good... Nice work with the orchestration... Excellent for soundtrack music it gives a sence of "something revealed" or "a curtain raised" to me...

But for it to stand alone as music in a concert hall I think you need to work on the melodic…"

Gavin Brown replied to Dimitris Chrisanthakopoulos's discussion The show went on - A not too pop-ish pop song
"Hi Dimitris,
I am a fan of pop and find this a pleasant song. The music is enjoyable and the lyrics are clever. I enjoyed it and think you are on the right track. Best to you -
