Sahir Haider replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion Waltz - 1'50"
"Dane, I think the idea of using bass clarinet instead of bassoon is very refreshing and effective. I actually had the opening theme of your waltz in my head today when I woke up. One way to measure the success of a piece is how much a listener wants…"

Sahir Haider replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion Waltz - 1'50"
"One of the wonderful things about this piece is how you achieve the desired effect with such economy of means. I could almost imagine Webern writing a tonal waltz and coming up with something like this !  I particularly liked the oboe and bass…"

"Good stuff man !  It's almos as if you're incapable of writing boring music :D .  I'm assuming you've already heard the film music of Johnny Greenwood ? He also utilizes stricts to remarkable effects."

"Hi Sahir, Those trills in the opening seconds and I knew it was going to be yet another masterful display of dancing keys! Truly brilliant. I'm becoming a fan. All the best"

Sahir Haider replied to Sahir Haider's discussion The Drifting Waltz - for solo piano
"Wow, Thank you ! That's a great compliment really. I worked really hard on the composition as well as the playing ( which isn't 100% to my satisfaction, but I gotta let go at some point), so great to hear you liked it !  I actually…"

Sahir Haider replied to Tarun Prajapat's discussion Avyan - Travels & Scene - Drylands
"Well these are as good as the ones before. Especially like the "Scene - Drylands". Your ability to paint a picture using music is quite clear ! "

"Hi Sahir, If you'd take a comment from someone who doesn't know how to play the piano; If I was driving and listening to classic fm and this popped up, I'd have to park up, close my eyes, and just appreciate this beautiful piece of…"

Sahir Haider replied to Tarun Prajapat's discussion Aarushi - Her Curiosity
"I like this one too, but your other piece had more of an impact on me.  I could be completely off here, but this piece also reminded me of some music by Olafur Arnalds. "

Sahir Haider replied to Tarun Prajapat's discussion My first post - "Aarushi - Spirit of Time"
"Hi Tarun, This is absolutely sublime. In 2 minutes, you've set the mood and  it has an immediate effect of transporting one to a distant land and time. So yes, I think the music fits perfectly with your description. But honestly, I could…"

Sahir Haider replied to Sahir Haider's discussion The Drifting Waltz - for solo piano
"Thank you so much !  I'm glad you liked the performance too as I worked quite hard on it !  Indeed, Debussy is one of my favourites and therefore a major influence in the music I write.   Thank you again !"

Saul Gefen replied to Sahir Haider's discussion The Drifting Waltz - for solo piano
"Wonderful, delightful and cheerful, and of course very good performance. I would say it reminiscent of the French Impressionistic composers such as Debussy and to some degree even Faure. Thanks for sharing."

Sahir Haider replied to Sahir Haider's discussion Mood River - for solo piano
"Ingo, please do not worry about that. You're right that I came here for encouragement but also ways to improve. And I think you gave me valuable feedback. I would think my pieces are flawed, regardless of what you had said.  It would be…"

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'm an amateur and completely self-taught composer. I've been playing the piano and improvising on it for many years, but have just recently started creating "exact" compositions and notating it down. Some of my favorite composers, and therefore influences on my own pieces would be Ravel, Debussy, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Chopin, Messiaen, Ligeti, Bartok, Schnittke, Shostakovich, Rachmaninoff, Berg, Liszt.. The list is much longer, but these are a few of the names most important to me. I hope to be composing a lot more in the future and expanding into an orchestral composer eventually.
