"Hi Michael,
If you read my post carefully you will see I did not criticise the composition for being mere pastiche - that would indeed be a very rude thing to do...not my style at all:) michael diemer said:

"Bob,
I see you haven't changed your views about NP since the last time I read them. You might be aware that many CF members have commented on the relatively authentic orchestral sounds I manage to produce with a combination of Sibelius and NP3...I…"

"Hi Joseph, am I correct in saying the development section (in the first Mvnt) starts at exactly the 4:00 mark? The sudden harmonic shift was lovely. Lovely apt orchestration. Personally I would like to hear simpler harmonic lines and more daring…"

"Agreed, Joseph. You seem to have perfected this style.
I was attracted to this paragraph:

"Well, here I am again having just listened to the 2nd movement. Like Dane above I too had to listen through the software - particularly at the beginning where the wind instruments overpower the strings leaving something of an imbalance. I can see…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Joseph Graham's discussion Oboe Concerto in C
"I had time to listen to the first movement and am growing accustomed to 'listening through' the software. I felt that the composition was every bit up to your usual accomplished standard, easy to listen to, the solo oboe much in keeping with the…"

"Joseph,
I think I see where you're coming from regarding the term 'pastiche' and you have noted that in my original response I modified my view and suggested that not many of us on CF could achieve what you've done here. I remain intrigued in…"

Joseph Graham replied to Joseph Graham's discussion Oboe Concerto in C
"Thank you, Stephen, for a frank and thoughtful review, and for your very kind complements.    
It is gratifying that upon reflection you seem to have decided not to consign my work to the ash heap of pastiche, recognizing it as unkind, and I’m…"

"Hi Joseph,
Sadly you haven't had much of a reaction on CF to date - possibly because you've posted all 3 movements together and many of us are so busy doing our own stuff we don't have the time to comment in any detail. I'm going to do this movement…"

"I hope I haven't chased Michael away from this discussion. I too, believe copyright is important. His statement, that one of the reasons he copyrights some of his works so that they will survive past him, is an interesting one. If I remember…"

"This is an example of why the written word is a terrible way to communicate. Sorry. More power to you.
I assume you have looked into what to do in case of copyright infringement. I have. I'll leave it at that so I won't be misunderstood. 
None of my…"

"Micheal,
I never suggested you shouldn't go after them, nor that it is permissible to steal online. Only that it happens and that you have more of a leg to stand on doing it the way you do it."

Bob Porter replied to Joseph Graham's discussion Quartet in G minor for 2 Violas and 2 Violoncelli
"Joseph,
Think about it. Many websites honor the "you put a copyright date on your work" idea. But we live in an age where if people see it online they think it's free to download and do as they please. We think nothing of posting copyrighted…"

"Michael, how do you copyright your work?  There are several ways to make it secure legally, but I was told that just declaring a copyright date on a piece is enough to secure it under most circumstances.  
Bob brings up interesting points in his…"
