First mvmnt of a piano concerto. Reviews are read and appreciated.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

by mistake

I found your music "by mistake" ... listening to NG radio, I'm quite happy finding your music, as you can see from my rating, I like it ;)
My favorite part is from 2:20, reminding a little of "Revolutionary Study" of Chopin.
Welcome to my fav list.
(still, the arpegios in the begining maybe need a little bit of work, also the middle part let me a very stillness impression)


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very good

From someone who isn't an expert in piano playing or classical music, I thought it was very good It would work really well in a flash movie or game on here. I give ya an 8

How much theory do you have?

The other guy is right, most of your statements on classical music are completely false. Melody is the MOST important thing in ANY genre, ESPECIALLY classical. You do a good job with creating a dissonant harmonic line for the piano, but melody is required in classical forms. This should be a Sonata-allegro, as the first movement of a concerto, and with no melody, one cannot make out any sections.

I am tempted to respond either with an attempt to communicate how awful this review made me feel, or angry declamations againt you. But that won't help anything. I remind myself that Newgrounds is not a bastion of thoughtful reviewers. I cannot believe anyone writing a review like this has thought about it, or considered the emotions of the composer. I hesitate to ascribe it to jealousy, but I know this piece is far better than you have made it out to be.

True, he did not give any advice, but he still makes a good point.

To begin with, classical music is the least melodic of the general genres. Melody is not a concern of mine. That aside, there is not just one, but several melodies in this piece.

In the Classical and Romantic styles, songs should have one main theme, and a secondary theme.

"Just a bunch of arpeggios" was published in a review as a critique of one of Rachmaninoff's concertos, and I've always found those rather good. What do you make of the chordal section, the violin break, the string interlude, and the tutti chords, in light of your arpeggio-based view?

You are not Rachmaninoff. Regardless of whether you may be his successor in the future, Rachmaninoff still followed melodic rules, etc. and stayed true to the classical form.

A agree with your stand on piano concertos, however.

This is a nice little piece, but it could still use work. Just study classical form more and work on bringing out melodies a little stronger.

very nice

i think you have great chords! my only thing i guess is that in the beginning, the piano should have been more quiet while the orchestra came in. I guess more dynamics is all you need!

almost deserved a "7"......

Wow,your last response to the last review was mighty long....dont get me wrong (hey that rhymed).

dont get me wrong the music it was great!

i wouldnt consider myself an expert on music but i think all it needed a bit more intruments added and more energy more feeling added to it...

uh...maybe sometime you want to check out my music? i may not have much music but would you check it out?
