Introduce Yourself / Hi to all!
« Last post by Emiliano on Yesterday at 01:51:09 PM »
Hi!
My name is Emiliano, I'm 25 year old and I'm from Rome.
I'm completing my studies in ET Engineering and (most importantly) studying Piano Performance in the Santa Cecilia Conservatory in Rome.
I composed music from the beginning of my piano studies (I'd even say before) but only at a self-taught level until now.

and this is why I make VERY liberal use of cue notes in my parts.

Completed Works: Junior / Sarabande (Classical Symphony 2nd movement)
« Last post by whitebark on July 16, 2018, 07:29:01 PM »
This second movement of my Classical Symphony borrows the idea of a slow, melancholy Sarabande from Britten's Simple Symphony - a slow, stately dance in 3/4 time. There's little in the way of modernism in this movement.  It is rather serious throughout, unlike the other movements.  The cellos introduce the main melody ala Brahms.

Well, this completes the reworking of all of the Classical Symphony movements, except for the addition of an extended fugue in the last movement, something that Michel suggested.  Perhaps, I will take that fugue project up in the future. For your listening pleasure, I combined all of the movements into one big mp3 file, so you can listen to the whole 22 minute work uninterrupted:

Interesting article I attached. When I lived in Wakefield 14+ years ago Carol Wiebe played a couple of my works in a concert. I had no idea she was an MD. I just knew her as a pianist.

The latest twist: they have found a bassoonist ... but he can make it for only one rehearsal.  I suspect I am going to regret the section toward the end (rehearsal mark I) where the music comes to a dead stop followed by an accelerando where the instruments enter one by one.  Easy if one person is "conducting"; chaos if each decides his or her own interpretation of accelerando.

I sort of feel like I'm misrepresenting the piece by saying it's for "wind quintet".  Yes, there are 5 players there, but that's not exactly what "wind quintet" usually implies.

As long as it's not five kazoo players, I'm open to your liberal definition.
 
Cheers,
Jer

An "interesting" twist.   Yesterday morning I got an email saying essentially, "We don't have a bassoonist for the program.  Can you rewrite the part for bass clarinet?".   That was a pretty trivial change but it makes me a little nervous.  Seems a bit late to find that out.   I'm glad this is not a difficult piece.
