"Good job...

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"

David Unger replied to Ishan Bhargava's discussion Piano piece
"Just after uploading my own Chopinesque piece I find this. Very nice indeed! However the ending could perhaps be developed more (if I am to ask for something, since the return of the theme is so short. If you feel that that isn't necessary or…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Ishan Bhargava's discussion Piano piece
"I like this very, very much.  Short and sweet, and lovely to listen to. Don't really have much in the way of technical comments, as I didn't really find much to nitpick on. Meaning that you did an excellent job IMO. :-)
Have you thought about hiring…"

Ingo Lee replied to Ishan Bhargava's discussion Piano piece
"If you are interested ( I don't have time either) from what I gather here, MusicXML can generate or control a midi file as well as control the notation graphics. I don't pretend to understand this, so if you do perhaps you can clarify it.…"

Ishan Bhargava replied to Ishan Bhargava's discussion Piano piece
"True, it is possible to for example add individual "hidden" dynamic levels to every note or add in every possible hairpin but that is time that could be spent composing instead, especially since I plan on having this performed live at some point.…"

Ingo Lee replied to Ishan Bhargava's discussion Piano piece
"I've just started a trial of Sibelius after years with other lesser known programs, I know they are pushing 'music xml' which is supposed to be better than midi. I know that certain elements can be midi controlled and linked to notations on the…"

Ishan Bhargava replied to Ishan Bhargava's discussion Piano piece
"Thanks for the kind feedback! As for your comments on pedal and audio, this is a Sibelius MIDI export so can't really ask for too much there. 
As for allowing the left hand to be changed, I may do that if I expand the piece in length. Ingo Lee…"

Ingo Lee replied to Ishan Bhargava's discussion Piano piece
"This is a very pretty piece, very impressionistic and I always like this style.  I would use less pedal in the early measures especially (my opinion only), I usually prefer clarity when something sounds good. You might also consider some more…"

Tyler Hughes replied to Ishan Bhargava's discussion Sonatina in E
"Its a lovely piece. Great use of motives and harmonic language, though at times I felt that the chords were a bit too dense and could use a little editing out of doubled notes. If this is just the exposition you might also want to reconsider calling…"

Ishan Bhargava replied to Kevin riley's discussion A Cotswold Suite
"I really like the opening pizzicato + trill figure, adding measure numbers throughout the score would certainly help though!
I would prefer the second beat of measure 8 should be an A in the first violins, I'm not a fan of the dominant 7th chord…"

Antonio Freixas replied to Ishan Bhargava's discussion Sonatina in E
"Reviewing music is difficult for me. I often find that what I hear the first time and how I feel about it is not the same as what I hear and feel after listening a few more times and over the course of a few days. I wish I had the time to review all…"

Ishan Bhargava replied to Ishan Bhargava's discussion Sonatina in E
"Thanks for the kind comments!
i think you are right, film/video game music has definitely been a significant influence on me. I also would say Ravel is another big one.
I think I like the low bass notes in the beginning, since they are far enough…"

Daniel Zarb-Cousin replied to Ishan Bhargava's discussion Sonatina in E
"Ahh.  Lovely.  The only thing I can think of to add is that the lower notes in the beginning may cloud the sound, but don't take my word for it.  I'd try it on a real piano.  The progressions you use seem kind "new."  Not like modern but like the…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Ishan Bhargava's discussion Development section of Piano Trio
"I like this a lot.  It has very beautiful melodies and very moving mood.
As for how to continue... m.96 seems to be heading in a promising new direction. I would go for more modulations to ever more distant keys, perhaps with each modulation bolder…"

Ishan Bhargava replied to Ishan Bhargava's discussion Development section of Piano Trio
"Thanks for all the suggestions!
Al, I think I see what you are saying about how the piece has a single mood. I'm not entirely sure how to avert this with the ensemble I have though. 
I'll try to add more rhythmic and harmonic variety. Passing the…"
