Johan Halmén replied to Paul Cecchetti's discussion Fugue in B Minor
"Ok, I shall listen one more time to the recording, view the pdf at same time and I'll make notes here about everything. Although I'm no expert on Bach, I've played a lot of Bach and I've analysed his fugues, written one or two of my own. I might…"

Paul Cecchetti replied to Paul Cecchetti's discussion Fugue in B Minor
"Yes Johan, I would very much appreciate some of your artistic advice, thats why I post stuff to this forum! My philosophy is to try to achieve good variety and contrast, taking the principle of parallels into account, but if they occur with little…"

Johan Halmén replied to Paul Cecchetti's discussion Fugue in B Minor
"Well, there are lots of faults, if you really would like to make this Bach-like. But I guess you don't. I guess you want to allow some rule breaking here and there to make it sound a bit modern. The "faults" I'm talking about is parallel octaves,…"

Emily Bond replied to Paul Cecchetti's discussion Fugue in B Minor
"Really nice counterpoint! You obviously have studied the WTC very deeply. I would love to hear this with voicing of the parts so the subjects are heard more distinctly. (I don't use a notation program, so I don't know how one does that with keyboard…"

Paul Cecchetti replied to Ario's discussion I'd like to share....
"Hey man,,,

Couldn't help noticing... You use the same orchestral samples I do- Roland Edirol,, I liked it! I think, as was said before, the dissonances are probably too pronounced, some subtlety would go a long way here. Having said that, it does…"

Paul Cecchetti replied to Simon Godden's discussion My "Symphony No 1 - mov 2" (remastered)
"no score? ok..

this is good... those slowly transforming chords at the start are pretty haunting- gave me a shiver anyway.. I liked the way you built up tension and restated the beginning with a grander orchestration, nice contrast between solo…"

Ario replied to Paul Cecchetti's discussion Piano Trio
"Okay... Every Chord on the piano (for one hand), exceeding an octave is difficult... up to a "9" is realistic - over that you need LARGE hands. The trick is, pianists with smaller hands use the pedal a few times more, playing your "harmonic" written…"

Paul Cecchetti replied to Paul Cecchetti's discussion Piano Trio
"cool man thanks,, ill have to revise those pizzicatos, among numerous other things, but my real point of concern to be honest is the piano part-- as a non-pianist I have little way of knowing what's idiomatic and what's not,, any piano players out…"

Ario replied to Paul Cecchetti's discussion Piano Trio
"Very nice... I didn't read the whole score, since I've got little time.

From what I noticed, The 15/8 theme is actually easier read/written in 6/8

You can notice that right in the beginning, when your beginning theme is repeated after 30 8ths,…"

"Well,,,I composed a lot of rock music back in the day...but I moved onto classical music and jazz as i got older...i still love rock music, but i think composing classical is more rewarding, for me it is at least.

Why dont you check out…"

Paul Cecchetti replied to Mahesh Vallath's discussion A Short Piece - Please Critique
"hmm...this works...its got great groove! I'd love to see this extended mate... why not extend a few chord progressions and solo over it yourself? Im assuming here that you play jazz? Otherwise write in a solo or two?"

Paul Cecchetti replied to Jonathan White's discussion Night Dance(Revised)
"well...its nice,,,to begin with,,, some sweet (if predictable) melodies in the right hand- but you overuse the 5th chords in the left hand I think,,that tends to render the thing very monotonous for the first minute or two... However, I really like…"

Michael Porter replied to Paul Cecchetti's discussion Cello Sonata- Scherzo
"This is very interesting, It really is lively, which is nice. The piano part seems to do most of the heavy lifting so to speak; it's really piano heavy. While the piano part is not crazy hard, it's almost always there in the background churning away…"
