July 2018
« on: July 21, 2018, 04:40:50 AM »
This is my July exercise, itís not a very typical style of writing for me, every time I try something like this I feel Iím plagiarizing someone elseís piece.  I have been vacationing in Germany and Austria the last this month and I think that might be influencing me a bit, I am in Budapest now and saw a lovely open air all Mozart concert a couple of nights ago, Budapest is an awesome city, I highly recommend it to anyone.
If anyone is interested in the score I'll post that after I get home, took a video of the opening Mozart concert,

You must have been feeling a bit Mozart-ian after that European trip  :). Nice melodic snippet of music you wrote there. The primary texture in your composition is melody + harmonic background. To enhance the classical feeling, keep the orchestration light and create a contrapuntal texture that tosses the motives around the different voices, creating a sort of dialog. But what do I know?
