Sharat Chandrasekhar replied to Layne Lee's discussion Visions in the Fields - A Piece for Piano
"I like the contrast of the tranquility in the foreground with the tension that seems to be lurking in the background. Have you considered adding a string section accompaniment?"

One of the things that I enjoy doing is taking a brisk piece in 3/4, slowing down the tempo and creating a 4/4 version of it.I personally feel that this sometimes really brings out the notes of a beautiful melody as the one in the 3/4 minuet from…

"Thanks, David. I am restructurin the work to incorporate a variation of the  melodic element into the rhythmic pattern which actually exists in <easure 23 (1:09') that I can modulate throughout the piece so that it's more recognisable.
While I do…"

"by the way when you wrote "although unfortunately the actual instrument sounds pretty bad", did you mean the musescore soundfont rendition of it, or the choice of the violas in that register?Thanks"

"Tahnsk again HS Tech
I do realise in retrospect that the serious flaw in the work is the lack of the rhythmic pattern to convey the ide of a unifying theme.

"Thank you, HS Tech for your very honest feedback. There is a lot of food for thought here.

"Thank you VERY much, David, and seeing as how you hold Bruckner in high esteem, you're an absolutely proper critic! You're also correct in that it does plod quite a bit, for which I will (tongue in cheek) blame Bruckner's influence! . I did try some…"

This is a 33 minute throwback-to-the-19th-Century composition for a full symphony orchestra with extra brass (2 trumpets, 2 horns, and 2 trombones) expected to play from the balcony - an idea that I stole from Respighi (who probably stole it from…
