Reflections in a Moonlit Night

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jos Wylin Jan 15. 5 Replies

Here is an older work in a new mix. The word "reflections" has a double meaning: mirror image and deep thoughts (here during the night). It's a philosophical septet for 2 violins, viola, cello,…Continue

"This is a beautiful traditional sounding short piece Jos and very enjoyable to listen to. Your trio sound is well arranged and your handling of the instruments is realistic to the point I wouldn't question it if you said that this was a live…"

Jos Wylin replied to Jos Wylin's discussion Trio for Flute, Viola and Cello, part II: Chasing Dorian Grey
"Thanks, James. I really appreciate your comment! The toughest part of the realistic sound is always the 'longer' notes, the slow passages, the legatos and slurs. Short notes with distinct attacks are in fact pretty simple. That's why…"

"Jos, I voted for part one in the Colors contest, and I like part two even better! The instruments seem a little more co-equal in this one, and, like the first, weave together wonderfully. I like how the rhythm of the second section complements the…"

Jos Wylin replied to Kjell Prytz's discussion Orchestral piece with winter memories
"Very nice work, Kjell. Lots of musical ideas glued together to a harmonious piece. It's pastoral for the 100 %. I guess that's what you feel best at ease and comfortable with.  Jos"

Trio for Flute, Viola and Cello, part II: Chasing Dorian Grey

Hi all,After a computer failure, I could finally complete the second part of my trio for flute, viola and cello. Like the first part, it has a color in the title, but it also refers to a (traditional) unusual scale. The title already reveals the scale here.I hope you enjoy the listen,JosChasing Dorian GreySee More

Jos Wylin replied to Saul Gefen's discussion Concerto for Strings In F major
"Hi Saul, This is indeed a lot of fun. Very virtuoso playing and well recorded. There is however one small detail in the high register of the first violins: they have a very strident attack as if there would be a high harp or the-like playing along.…"

Jos Wylin replied to Sean Pollaro's discussion My first orchestral piece
"Very well done, Sean. The mix is somewhat 'special' and not classical at all, but it offers a very special effect to the musical content. The sound of the strings is really good. The flute is a little poor in the legato passage (near the…"

Jos Wylin replied to Gerd Prengel's discussion Symphonic Poem - THE SUN
"Hi Gerd, Very intriguing work and extremely well done as to orchestration, thematic material and recording (for an older work). Of course with present day means it could sound a lot better and realistic (strings mainly). But that aside, it's a…"

Jos Wylin replied to Saul Gefen's discussion Concerto for Strings In G minor
"Hi Saul, Sorry to tune in so late. This is a wonderful concerto overall. Personally I prefer the second part better (although the first is extremely well done) because it offers more a musical idea and not so much technical playing skills. The…"

Jos Wylin replied to Gerd Prengel's discussion String quartett on Beethoven's last sketches - LIVE RECORDING - I. Andante Maestoso / Allegro
"Wonderful performance and mainly a very good interpretation. The quartet has read the score very carefully and played the phrases with some fantasy, but strictly in the classical style. (No romantic hyperbolism or exaggeration in dynamics and…"

Jos Wylin replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion Impressionist piece about evening.
"Fantastic piece, Dane. I love the way you play with chords and 'surprising' harmonies, related to jazz chords and impressionism. Also the orchestration has great merits, always telling us something new, something unexpected. And to make it…"

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've been composing since I was 10. I had an education as teacher of music and I functioned in high school as teacher general musical practice, musical history and analysis. My second diploma was teacher Germanic languages (Dutch/English/German). I was the musical leader of a chamber orchestra during more than 20 years, with which we did a number of recordings (CD, radio, television). My interests in music can be situated mainly in the field of baroque, classical, early romanticism and genuine folk music, although I sometimes write more modern scores (but not contemporary music).

My musical examples are: Jean-Philippe Rameau, Georg Philip Telemann, Josef Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Richard Strauss.

My musical preferences: baroque and classical music, early romanticism, genuine folk music.

Genres: 17th, 18th and 19th century dance music.

Genres written so far: concerto, fantasy, overture, suite, symphonic poem, rhapsody, chamber music, songs, music for a stage play, ballet, folk dances

Further: many arrangements for small groups (classical and folk)

Hi Jos,

now we are better friends than ever.

Did you post a contribution to the Dance Contest? Your Ballet may be a contender.

Cheers,

Kjell

Hi Jos,

It’s fastlane(Phil) from the defunct Garritan forum. I’m glad to see you on here. I became a member years ago but I haven’t been active for some time.  The prodigal son returns I guess. :)
