I enjoyed both pieces. I like the sense of harmonic direction in each. The rendering as usual is well done.
Two very nice easy listening piano pieces, well recorded and with the right colour. Small, but beautiful!
Of course I liked both.
But Cue1 should be (could be) the adagio movement in a piano concerto. At least, I can hear the orchestra, and it is beautiful. Chopin would have liked it too...
I need to catch up on me Graham posts! - These are really nice - I enjoyed being surprised by the triumphant march section in the middle of the otherwise melancholic (and sooo sensitively titled--hehe)-Cue 1. Admire both much.
Enjoyed both of those, thanks
Hey Graham! Aren't you a busy boy lately. You are posting some fun stuff to listen to. I like your "cue" pieces. I particularly like the harmonic movement in cue 1. What piano lib are we listening to here? Thanks for posting. Jay
Hey, thanks to everyone for commenting.
Some BG on these. Just two cues written for a clients music library, so never gave them a title, and just simple and short pieces.
Yes, forgot to mention the piano. It's my main solo piano, Alicia's Keys. Strange choice you might think, but piano libraries are quite subjective, more so than many other instrument libraries in my opinion, and something about the tone and playability of this one really satisfies me. Often I hear a bad low end, or dull middles, or whatever from other libraries, always that 'one thing' that bugs me, but not in this library. It's sampled from a one of a kind piano that Yamaha gave her, I think, if you care for such things. It's also $99, was on sale at one point for $50.
I like! That piano you have has a good sound, especially for this style of music. I might watch out for it at $50!
Loved the ending of #1. The Cm to G progression along with the decrease in volume produced a very nice effect.
I have a small idea for #1 - have you thought about changing the first C chord at 46" to be a single sustained C note one octave down? That's what my tiny little music brain was hoping to hear.
Thanks for sharing these! Very nice indeed.
