It was only one publisher and I still want to publish this piano sonata but this is a genuine quote from the editor publisher staff(publisher not mentionting name)
ok actual quote:
"Your Period Construction is not Consistant with your style"
yea Beat that!! so like my cadences are not consitant with the style of music(guess they didn't like the dimished chords suspending on top of each other to resolve in the developement section there.
So anyone else ever get some wild replys when publishing classical music?
I can't help it that i want to publish some classical music.
I actually have sort of a complex from this reply now from that publisher and because of it went frontwards and backwards over this dang sonata trying to figure out what the heck there talking about. I changed stuff(probably didn't even need changing) thinking that was it then sent that version, and once again got the same reply. I finally told them there is nothing wrong with this music and if your not willing to publish it fine we have nothing more to discuss. Oh well...Next! OH and I had a concert Pianist play this sonata too and I can't publish it? WTF. I obviously dont' know Sh****T...
So it all comes down to what the heck do they want...Music is subjective anywayz. and yadayadayadayada
here's a genuin quote of me trying to publish 19th century classical piano sonata:
you would be a genius if you lived 200 years ago. It's a great piece but we are sorry to say we can't publish it. (they gave no more reason)
I living now not 200 years ago LOL!!! geeze it's just a style of music and my interpetation of it. genuis? the only genius is madness. madness in trying to make money with music and the madness of trying to get a job with music and the madness of it all! HA!
So I bet minilism style music or like impressionistic piano music would sell...here is what is a joke: (piano music composed now)
New Age music sells, musically it's a joke like pop arranged for piano pathetic.
Also Celtic Irish style piano music sells, learning books sell for piano publication too.
Film themes for piano sell, it just comes down to simpler piano music selling i think.
