ED W SHARPE replied to Geert ter Horst's discussion Tetrachordium
"Dear Geert,
 
H.S. Teoh has provided some very good advice which state my thoughts better than I could ever convey. I just have one question, just out of curiosity, why the non-standard instrumentation?

ED W SHARPE replied to ED W SHARPE's discussion Solitude; a fugue using the Double Harmonic Major Scale
"Dear David,
Thank for you comments and taking time to listen.  I have never been happy with the leadup to bar 74, it feels rushed too me and too short.  And as you say BAr 74+ might be unbalanced given the lead up to it.  Thank you.

"Dear Liz,
thank you for taking the time to listen and comment.  It has been several years since I wrote this piece and I am trying to remember what I did.  I suspect that I was not thinking it would be fugue, but then the intro turned into what it…"

"I'm not at all sure that this is boring --in fact there seems to be a genuine depth of feeling which I so often miss with others and I'm largely attuned to your harmonic world as well. This comes perhaps as a bit of a surprise when reading the…"

"I mainly use Google Drive to share both scores and audio. The caveat is that the listener should really download the audio to listen to it, as listening directly through Drive the playback usually cuts off unpredictably."

Liz Atems replied to ED W SHARPE's discussion Solitude; a fugue using the Double Harmonic Major Scale
"I agree with H. S. Teoh's comments about the counterpoint - despite the fugal entries, it doesn't quite work as a fugue. Still, I wouldn't necessarily say that this is a fault - I can think of many symphonic (and other) movements that begin fugally…"

"Hello Ed! Can I ask you to upload your score here in forum (in PDF)? It is not easy to watch it because of text about "illegal copying"!

H. S. Teoh replied to ED W SHARPE's discussion Solitude; a fugue using the Double Harmonic Major Scale
"Interesting piece.  It's certainly a harmonic language I wasn't expecting based on your descriptions of it, though it does sound quite reminiscient of, say, a slow movement in a Shostakovich symphony. :D  Perhaps with some more work it could become…"

"PS: While the piece starts on the D DHS, it ends on a G min/Maj9 #11 chord derived from the notes of the D DHS. (The Sharp 11th is en-harmonically spelled as Db instead of C#)."

 In a previous thread about H. S. Teoh’s Fugue in E minor we were discussing fugues that “broke the rules”, where I mention that I once wrote a fugue based on the Double Harmonic Major Scale (DHS); this is the piece: Solitude Score and Audio    I am…

I have been debating if for my first piece if I should share this as it clocks in at a mammoth 48 minutes. Her Scars — A Ballet in 11 ScenesThe ballet is scored for a chamber ensemble consisting of: • Solo Flute (doubles on Alto Flute)• Double Reed…

"Moon:
 
I understand you want to make the piece and the accompaniment spare, but perhaps it is too sparse. I would have like to have seen the very low notes of the piano introduced sooner, maybe some like a very very soft pedal point or drone. You…"

"Setting the songs is Shakespeare plays is a fine idea. The  only piece of mine that ever really sold (meaning I sold more than two copies) was a setting of Take, O take those lips away from Measure for Measure. The only think I would point out is…"
