I recently went to a conference with a well renowned composer named Samuel Adler. One of his quotes, "Music is what is too precious to put into words" really stuck with me. He also said that "a good piece is one in which you fall in love with every single note." With this new knowledge, my emotions were poured into this delicate piece that I may even think about publishing to a sheet music company.

Let me know what you think.

No words can describe this piece as it's far too beautiful for words, that quote is so true. It amazes me the variety of talents here on NG, and you sir are very talented.

and indeed every note i love

When I hear music this beutiful I dont get words to discribe my feelings toward it. I often draw an image towards the song. I picture and old stone castle building.specifically in the garden with the enterance in the backround and stone pathways laced with arched pillars...and all coverent in snow.
-very rarely do I feel this towards a song so thank you for giving me such the inspiration.



Perfect.

I love winter. Last January I took a midnight stroll on the frozen river behind my house. The moon was full, and I just walked and walked lost in thought and admiring the splendour of the moonlight shimmering on the freshly fallen snow. It was one of the most peaceful and relaxing things I've ever done and your piece captures the emotions of that walk exquisitely. Very well done.

Thanks a bunch, I'm glad I was able to communicate with you ^^

Wonderful

Quite a touching song, and the backstory is also very interesting. I agree with Samuel Alder's quote "Music is what is too precious to put into words," but I think there is more to music than that; music is what cannot be put into words. How do you write a book that tells you Bach's Brandenberg Concertos? How can you write Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 in words? You can't, and that is why it exists in the form of music.

I personally like the season of Winter more than the other three (mostly due to my preference of cold weather), but I think you've done a marvelous job of painting a picture with your music. I see a little boy, sitting in his home in the country, looking up at the stars and the moon on a clear night, shivering in the cold in his inadequate clothing, dreaming of a better future with a more promising life. If you were the one playing the violin in this song, I applaud your musicianship. You create such wonderful sounds with that violin, and if you were not the one playing, I congratulate your arrangement of the piece. It really is a beautiful slice of the higher plane that is pure music. An incredible way of putting what is "too precious for words", and making such a wonderfully sentimental song with it.


Aeris responds:

Wow, I'm glad that this touched you so well :D

Unfortunately, this is not me playing, however, I am able to play it. I just have to get some time in the recording studio ^^ Something I like about the violin part I wrote is that it's tailored so that it can be played on one violin.

Thanks for the review :D
