"I'm old school. When I started composing you wrote for what you had at hand, which for me was piano or wind ensemble. I have a couple of orchestral libraries lying around, but don't feel that my ideas are big enough to warrant those forces. It's…"

" Is your release for any specific purpose? Taken purely as music I find this piece smaller than it look on paper: you're not using the full resources of all those instruments. I'm willing to bet this would work equally well as a string quartet.…"

Victor Eijkhout replied to Gavin Brown's discussion Annual Donation Drive
"I'm sort of of the same mind as you. (And I thank you for egaging with my latest.) I do hope you'll draw the same conclusion as I and support this forum with a some money, just because it's a good thing to have this forum. There are very few places…"

Victor Eijkhout replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion Song of Songs - first 'fragment' Intro with a couple of verses. 1'55"
" Lovely opening! It's coherent, it develops its material enough not to outstay its welcome, I love the lush harmonies, and it goes into the next movement at the right time. This is very promising for a full cycle.
"Poor man's Delius"? Yes, it has…"

"Thanks. My soundcloud is sort of a dumping ground for random stuff I play. For serious recorder orchestra music check out: http://www.eijkhout.net/compositions/orchestra.html

James Gilmour replied to Victor Eijkhout's discussion Rhythmic piece for recorder orchestra
"Vic, I love this! Such a joyful work, and I enjoy the close harmonies, and the upbeat rhythm. As someone who was only aware of classical recorder music, or recorder music for beginners, this really opened my eyes. I had no idea of the possibilities…"

"Well, you captured my interest and while I don't expect you to post another of your works for my benefit I look forward to hearing more. (Please, however, bear in mind I'm not here every day so a reply may not be immediate.)
I gave it some thought…"

"Thanks. That's a useful thought. While recorders come in a fairly wide range, they are still somewhat close together, and I may have clumped too many of them at the bottom.

"No, I just said it didn't work for me. Looks like it did for Gavin. I replied to your comment to let you know at least someone had listened.
But since you've asked, I felt the close (or close-ish) harmony among the lower recorders tended to sound a…"

"Hi Viktor,
This is very well done and composed. A sweet tune with a light heart. The Latin beat is infectious! Thanks for sharing!

"So why doesn't it work? Too monotonous? Too incoherent? Unbalanced? Too avant-garde / too old-fashioned?
That's what I'm interested in: how you experience it.

"Point is, what did you want said about it, if anything?
It 'is'. I listened to it though it isn't my kind of music - nothing to do with recorders themselves but the composition didn't work, for me.
Cheers,
Dane."

Victor Eijkhout replied to Alfred La Fleur's discussion Solitary carnival [1:58]
" The opening material is really nice. Chopin on one of his more laidback days.
So at about the 2/3 mark I'm starting to think that a change of key or mood would really be welcome, and indeed you go somewhere, but you never come back. That makes the…"
