    English Horn Concertino Second Movement

    Hi Everyone

    I've completed the second movement of my little Concertino for English Horn. I was completely overwhelmed by the response to the first movement, and I hope that you will like the second movement . It is a Pastorale in the form of a Siciliano in slow 6/8. Because the first movement is in good old C major, I had to replace the customary Pastoral key of F major, with a minor.

    I also did a remix of the first movement, after considering all the comments from the previous thread. I will post both links here.

    First Movement:

    Second Movement:

    Thanks for listening.

    Kind Regards

    Another splendid piece!! I listened to the revised first movement and the balance between orchestra and soloist are dead on. Wow! The second movement is not only superb but a perfect transition from the first. The melodies are hauntingly beautiful. I don't want to start a war with Larry but the timpani made perfect sense. I hope you give us a rousing Presto for the Finale. Thanks for this wonderful work.

    Thanks for the comments. The timps were somewhat of a problem for me too. After thinking about it for a long time, I finally decided on the two of three spots where they currently play. I'm no expert on Timpani, but I think if played delicately, they make for good effect.

    Thanks again for taking the time to listen.

    Kind Regards


    PS: I have some rough scores of these two movements, in case anyone wanted to follow them.
