Charles Holt replied to Lawrence Aurich's discussion Opera, "Moses"
"Fictional babies in rivers always get the audience on side.Anyway I'm sure Lawrence would prefer comments on his music and after receiving so many on your own profligate posts Saul, perhaps it is time try it yourself. I think this would be…"

Charles Holt replied to Saul Dzorelashvili's discussion The Future of the Piano
"I think perhaps you should reword this topic! You really do appear to be taking different perspectives as attacks and reacting quite unprofessionally if I may say so. For all I know you are a Yamaha employee given your dismissal of any and all…"
Charles Holt replied to Saul Dzorelashvili's discussion The Future of the Piano
"I never did say it was cheap Saul. In this country it comes to roughly £3250 on average compared to your piano which is £6250 on average and that was all I said, that it was roughly half the price and has a comparable recorded sound when…"

Charles Holt replied to Saul Dzorelashvili's discussion The Future of the Piano
"But my point is practically proved for me as the linked model is roughly half the price and sounds very good. It must be said of course that after ten seconds on Youtube there are videos in which it sounds extremely bad too! Certainly a factor here…"

Charles Holt replied to Saul Dzorelashvili's discussion The Future of the Piano
"I would say these are well suited to composition, traching and maybe performance but not recording unless your circumstances prevent you from using microphones. Even so I don't see what the benefit of this instrument is when it seems to simply…"

Charles Holt replied to Henry Morris's discussion classical imitations
"Stereotypes work because they are successful and in my opinion this is a very successful, lyrical and moving piece. It didn't evoke Mozart except for some moments in the strings but instead sounded somehow French? As if the ending theme to a…"

Charles Holt replied to Lennart Östman's discussion How do you get performed?
"I believe this person's intentions to be dishonest."

Charles Holt replied to Lennart Östman's discussion How do you get performed?
"The trouble is that bad/local orchestras tend to be the ones most likely to accept new repertoire or spend time in rehearsals on it. They will be mainly volunteers with perhaps a couple of principles and conductor of higher repute and will probably…"

Charles Holt replied to Saul Dzorelashvili's discussion The Hidden Cabin
"Whilst it sounds good and I enjoyed the music I don't think it sounds "$8000 good" sounding as it does just half a percent shy of real. And sadly its the half percent that we notice most. If I was going in that direction I don't…"

Charles Holt replied to Peter Spero's discussion Orchestral Software Companies - Convention
"Hi Peter - I can't help you there but I noticed you have missed the D out of "Soundtrack Music" on your website menu!"

Charles Holt replied to ElektroN's discussion My first electronic song with the FL-studio
"I had to google what "Seven Nation Army" was but I don't hear a similarity upon review."

Charles Holt replied to Stephen Lines's discussion True sounds
"A problem I'm becoming familiar with myself so I feel for you. Monitoring speakers is what you need and certainly not headphones! Monitors colour the sound minimally or not at all and therefore allow you to mix the sound without being…"

Charles Holt replied to Elias Fredericks's discussion String Quartet
"Cooperation is always good Graeme but with the exception of some reverb, I don't hear a lot of difference between your sample quality and Elias'! Elias, I would recommend adding some subtle hall reverb to start with as almost all live…"

Charles Holt replied to Ashley Berg's discussion What kind of software do you use in your creative workflow?
"I don't really. Pencil and paper with some very basic software instruments.You've asked a few stimulating questions Ashley, do you have music of your own? What's your path?"

Charles Holt replied to H. S. Teoh's discussion Fantasia Sonata in G minor
"H. S., this is a beautiful piece! Moving from power to delicacy with the greatest of ease and wonderful themes. Some stretches that began to lose my attention though it must be said. I see Mike Hewer is no longer on this forum but used to be? Based…"

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I am a choral and sacred composer with four decades of experience, now beginning to move away from the rigorous strictures surrounding such work into a more harmonically unbound future. I'm hoping to meet fellow practitioners and get some meat on the skeleton of my output! Talk to you soon, Charles
