Great use of slight key changes in the piano part. It really had me unsure of what to expect. Same thing at the end with the deceptive cadence (or incomplete cadence, I can't remember much from music theory class). I also really enjoyed the balance between the piano and the orchestra. I know that can sometimes take someone time to adjust. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this piece. It definitely isn't the norm for you.
Nice composition! The use of silence in the beginning of this piece is instrumental in and of itself. The climax is fantastically done, those strings are always moving.
I love silence in sentimental piano pieces. Really gives the listener time to absorb each note, if you get what I mean.
I was nervous about the climax coming in too abruptly or leaving too prematurely, but I'm glad you don't think the same! Thanks for the review.
This piece is great all over the place. Tough to nail down, though it could do with a longer run. 85 seconds is barely under three modern commercials these days. [/nitpicking]
Aw thanks! I agree it is short and the truth is, I had a hard time lengthening it since this is really out of my comfort zone, but regardless I'm happy you enjoyed it.
Thanks for reviewing mate.
I think you did well. The piece sounds like one of a kind and its thought provoking mood really gets to me here. Despite having just a few instruments you've shown that a true master does not necessarily need a full orchestra to make his music sound strong and impressive.
Hey man! Thanks for dropping by, really glad you think this experiment was successful. Thank you for the review :3.
I enjoy how unpredictable this piece is, usually i can easily ''guess'' every progression, but not on this.
Thats often a mark for me to listen to more and put a composer in higher esteem.
Thanks, that's genuinely great to hear! Glad you like it :3.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
