Jon Corelis replied to Jon Corelis's discussion Painted Seasons for Solo Cello
"Thanks very much for the interesting and insightful comment.  I think all music, if it's any good, tells a story, not that it necessarily embodies a "program music" narrative, but it has the emotional pattern and structure of a story.  You might say…"

"Hi John,

"Thanks for listening and for the comments.  There may be a mood change at the point you mention.  The piece is to some extent based on a traditional Japanese scale -- I forget now what that particular one is called -- and it may start to wander into…"

"I like it. The software cello is a little harsh on the ears, but hey, we all fight for our work to be performed, not?

"I realize in retrospect that it's not entirely true that as I said I've never arranged a sea shanty.  I've in fact co-written one, with a guy named William Shakespeare:
Stephano's Song
The lyrics to this song from The Tempest very clearly mark it as…"

"I like sea shanties, though I have never arranged one myself.  I like the arrangement and its relatively strightforward style -- with a sea shanty you don't want to get too fancy, since the hands on an old sailing ship were not likely to be…"

Jon Corelis replied to Saul Gefen's discussion Venetian Gondola Song In G Minor
"Yes, it strikes me as somewhat Chopinesque, like some other of your pieces.  I'm not sure Slavic is the right term for what I felt, it's just something about the bend of the notes that felt farther north than the sunny shores of the Mediterranean. …"

Jon Corelis replied to Gregory Michael Hodges's discussion Introduction
"Though it's about poetry rather than music, I think the view of T. S. Eliot is relevant here:  in his critical essays he argues that successful poetry must be engaged in a dialog with its tradition -- a dialog, not an imitation.  The dialog…"

"A polished and listenable piece that seems to combine gentle melancholy with gentle pleasure.  To me, though, it seemed almost to have a more Slavic feeling than Italian."
