George Abbott replied to Gavin Brown's discussion “Dancing” CONTEST DEADLINE PASSED
"    I understand your problem. I have over 60 dance pieces of many types but all are 5 - 12 minutes in length. That is why I composed a piece for this contest. Rules here have been fair in the past years since I've been on this site.
   Have you…"

Dane Aubrun replied to George Abbott's discussion Hello. Farmer George Here - Searching For Honest Critique
"Bob, I can always appreciate your commentary.
George,
I'v listened to the first one (so far) and it works fine because it's short. If you're happy with short works (for whatever reason - saleable or a very short movie etc) then great. Rapido was…"

Bob Porter replied to George Abbott's discussion Hello. Farmer George Here - Searching For Honest Critique
"George,

My question is this: If you could write anything, not for sale, but just for you, what would it be? Something that didn't fit into a 2 minute format, or try to sell something. If you could write something that was music for it's own sake,…"

"Hi George,
I listened Rapido and Gliding Through.
I am not well informed about the genre that you chose to use.
First of all it sounded to me colorful and enjoyable.
You are well aware of keeping the freshness through out the piece.
From a classical…"

"I listened to a few of your pieces, and found them delightful, beautiful, varied, very competently composed and engineered, and highly worthy of showcasing.

Getting people to listen to your stuff is really a struggle! There are so many of us…"

George Abbott replied to George Abbott's discussion 3 PIANO PIECES FOR A SKILLED PLAYER LOOKING FOR PERFORMANCE WORKs
"   You are probably correct about that. I do love Gershwin. I play the Rhapsody in Blue 3-4 nights a week. I am lucky enough to be able to play on my farm in the daytime with my animals and play at night with my piano. I work in a resturant a few…"

"Sorry I'm late to the dance with a  reply.  Listened to your politically-charged piano work and definitely heard the depiction of "Donald" as you laid out :)  lol  There's a Gershwin-esque feel to some of your piano passages, and I enjoyed how after…"

"DONALD and the WALL (a tribute in radical classical form, to those who are not true idiots) is your title, and is a depiction of a sociopathic child going through a head-banging experience - very interesting Farmer George. You will see that due to a…"

"   Thanks very much. Would you like to hear a piano concerto type I did called DONALD AND THE WALL ? Piano parts are good but orchestration not so good. My instruments are all I can afford although i am not complaining. I play everything on a Casio…"

"Very nice, George!  I enjoyed them very much.  I don't believe I've encountered such a proficient composer and pianist that is a farmer by day.  Kudos for making the time to explore your creativity!

"I like the flow of it. Have you tried to bring your left hand an octave lower to provide a more solid bass structure to parts of this piece and then back again? I try that with a lot of the piano pieces as well as orchestrated ones I create. Here is…"

"   Hello. Just read your post. I know it is a bit late. I composed this piece a month ago. It is a mixture of late styles that contain what my interuptation is of two oppositions coming together. There are Syrian and English voices throughout."
