I know I shouldn't post something this rough but I really want to see what people think. I've been asked by the string trio that our band works with on a regular basis to write some music for an album project. My intention was/is to write something cool and fairly modern but I had an idea today and ran with it. It's unashamedly 18th century. This is a first draft; the piece needs work and editing. Some transitions aren't good and the repeat needs more variation and development.
I haven't done much with the GPO solo strings and my!! --they sound great. This file isn't for performance feel, it's just to generate the sheet music so no different articulations are programmed in. Also, none of the turns, trills and embellishments are played.
Now, here's my big question- does anyone feel there's a place for a piece like this (I would make the last movement of a complete Trio) in today's world or is it just a hollow pastiche of music that's been done by people with infinitely more talent than me??? Should I drop it and just get on with something more contemporary and (hopefully) more original?? Does this just sound like some music major's theory class composition??
EDIT- link is now to a revised version that fixes a few compositional issues, though there are still about 4 spots I want to tweak still.
