"This piece for me was a bit of a puzzle, and I don't mean that in a negative way at all. I enjoyed listening to it all the way through.
It's difficult for me to be "objective" about this work, because the traditional nocturne is not the type of…"

Clay Gillespie replied to Dr. Eam's discussion Nocturne Nr. 2, in Am Op.6
"I especially like 1:25 -- where you take the theme harmonically.  Nice to my ears.
I would spend some revision time with the section beginning at 2:10 (a little too repetitive for me); and at 2:30 it doesn't seem to know what to do for a few…"

Dr. Eam replied to Dr. Eam's discussion Nocturne Nr. 2, in Am Op.6
"Hi Gregorio,

thank you for your comment. I get your thoughts regarding 1:25 and you are perfectly right, that there is lack of harmonic relationship. I chose not to follow a harmonic pattern to underline the rapid changing transition to the next…"

"Hi Dr. Eam,
It seems you get a nice flow going …  and the chords are closely related...  then at around 1:25 you have a transition which employes  chord relationships same seem to not relate at all to the previous section… It just hit my ear as odd,…"

"Dr. Eam,
I listened 3 times, and I'm not sure what to comment.  I did like the material a lot, so much indeed that I'm not sure why then I didn't really love the piece.  I loved much of its content, but not the piece as a whole so much.  I suspect…"

"Finally got around to this. Wow! Magnificent! Very dynamic and exciting scoring. The name that occurs to me is "fantasia" -- that's probably more appropriate than "symphony" IMO, since the various themes are only loosely connected with each other. …"

"Hi Dr. Eam.  Thank you for posting.
Light and Fun… Somewhat reminiscent of Britten's "Simple Symphony"…..{perhaps(?), with a dash of Elfman..}  I am sorry to say you lost my attention in the middle section…

"Heya Doc,
Congratulations on your mock-up! Anyone who completes an orchestral piece mocked-up for MIDI has put a lot of work into it. That you came to call your project "finished" is a triumph in its own right.
I hope my criticism will seem…"

Dr. Eam replied to Paul Halley's discussion "Angel" Should it be part of a multi- movement quartet?
"I am just hearing it :-) That was not a recommendation to re-write it for orchestra. It suits strings perfectly. Stephen Lines said:
I see Dr Eam hears this as an orchestral output but I'm pretty certain you are fixed on the string quartet route…"

Dr. Eam replied to Paul Halley's discussion "Angel" Should it be part of a multi- movement quartet?
"Hi Paul!

I allready had written some words on this, but left the page and got them deleted before I could c&p them. Therefore another try: I really love this one! Actually I can hear the orchestration within the first few bars. Vilolins, Glocks, a…"

"Hi! Thank you very much! Though I must admit I've never listened to a single piece of Rachmaninoff :-D Sorry, but atm I do not have the time to make-up the original score. Maybe in 1-2 Weeks :-)"

H. S. Teoh replied to Dr. Eam's discussion Nocturne Nr. 1, in D Op. 4
"Wow, this is a very nice nocturne! Reminds me very much of Rachmaninoff, with a bit of Chopin and Beethoven thrown into it. I'd love to see the score!"

Dr. Eam replied to Mariza Costa-Cabral's discussion Little Prelude
"Hello Marzia,
a very lovely piece! The first Chord and it's Vocing reminds me of Chopins Nocturne #4 in F Op. 15/1.
I can recommend you to sometimes change the rhythm of your 2nd hand when writing a piece for solo piano. Also a figuration of a…"
