John Galt Carey replied to John Galt Carey's discussion John Carey -- Concerto for Viola and Orchestra
"Sylvester Wager said:
So your name is John Galt? Are you a violist?




Yes it is, and no, I'm not.


The second question is important, since most of us aren't violists and cannot properly judge the viola part as bona fide concerto-stuff. I really…"

John Galt Carey replied to John Galt Carey's discussion John Carey -- Concerto for Viola and Orchestra
"Thank you both for your feedback.

There is also a moment in the viola solo where the soloist plays a very repetitive rhythmic pattern that seems to go on to long without the orchestra really taking over more. that might also just be because its a…"

Tyler Hughes replied to John Galt Carey's discussion John Carey -- Concerto for Viola and Orchestra
"Here are my critics for this piece
First movement: Very strong opening. You make your harmonic language very apparent. Really do like this movement, but my only critic is that I wished the viola would take more breaks through out, even if its just…"

vincenti zghra replied to John Galt Carey's discussion Sonata for Cello and Harp
"I guess that comment was mostly angled toward the interplay between the instruments and the degree of how much they stray from eachother. In some ways I guess it detracted from my enjoyment since I focused on it a bit as something I would change if…"

John Galt Carey replied to John Galt Carey's discussion Sonata for Cello and Harp
"Thank you immensely, Vincenti. Just curious about one comment:
 
At times it also seems like the interraction is completely lost between the instruments(in the first movement), it's not that it's polytonal but it's rhythmic patterns and progression…"

vincenti zghra replied to John Galt Carey's discussion Sonata for Cello and Harp
"Hi John,
've heard a fair deal of sonatas but I'm by no means qualified to make a detailed comment, so I'll give you the only things that I could make out(with my very limited musical training and language).
 
I have to agree with Paul, this is a…"

"Paul, thank you for your kind words. I am absolutely thrilled to see how well this piece has been received thus far -- now, hopefully, I'll be able to get a proper performance together!
 
Any other comments?"

Doug Lauber replied to John Galt Carey's discussion The Direction of "Classical Music"
"Classical music is mostly dead, but still holds some sway. Composers are NOW influenced by everything, ranging from hip-hop to jazz to electronica to rock to the classical music of southern India. On and on. OK- Brahms was influenced by Hungarian…"

22b8n9x97ddrd replied to John Galt Carey's discussion Sonata for Cello and Harp
"John, after reading your preface to this work, I knew I had to give a shot at listening to it, knowing, too, that it would likely be a difficult one for me...( I'm about as tonal as they come, I'm afraid, though I'd like to break away from that at…"

John Galt Carey replied to John Galt Carey's discussion Sonata for Cello and Harp
"Thank you Adrian and Andrew for your input. If what you say is true, then I find it rather unfortunate that people would be reluctant to comment because they feel unqualified. I'm not necessarily looking for an in depth critique (though I certainly…"

  • Pure Genius... your my new favorite composer!

  • Not really a fan - I read it at request of a college friend. It felt more like an elaborate chick lit book. As Amy Taggart moves from one lover to the next, each more powerful and important. Kind of like it was a fantasy of the author, with a little philosophy thrown in to keep it real, yo. But it's been years since I read it, and I was younger and even dummer back then!
  • Hey John! Ever read any Ayn Rand? Atlas Shrugged was about a guy named John Galt (I think...)
