El Circo de Ninos
« on: October 04, 2018, 01:17:34 PM »

It's been a few months since I posted .....  :'( so.

I went back to work on my circus project.   I did some work on the first movement.  :o

Some feedback would be nice.  ;D

This is a work in progress.  There are 2 more sections and a return to the opening theme.


PS: Please don't comment on engraving issues as yet.  :-X

Mark, your piece reminds me of Rota/Fellini musics and I look forward to seeing whether you'll develop it  in that manner with plenty of whim and variation or in a more solemn concert piece fashion.

Very nice start, IMO :)

Mark, that is a nice start for your Circo de Ninos has a carnival flavor to be sure. I'm looking forward to hearing the rest of the work.

I like that while on one level it does invoke the images of a carnival-like atmosphere, the slippery chromatics imply (at least to me) that something else might potentially be going on.

I look forward to more of the piece.

Yup, nice carnival flavor, Mark! There is great potential to develop this piece in a lot of ways. Where do you intend to go with it? One suggestion--I think the piece drags a bit, so make the tempo faster--you could make the 3/4 section not in three, but almost in one.
