Fellow Music People,
This is the first movement of my "Piano Sonata Number Two", featuring the GPO Steinway.
This is not written in the "classic" sonata form.
A 'driving' piece Larry full of energy.Originally Posted by Larry G. Alexander
I just wondered, are you a fan of Bach or the Baroque style. For me, much of your music has Baroque connotations to it yet remaining original.
Thank you for posting, wish I had your courage to post
Patience is a virtue, sensitivity is a gift
No, I am not a particular fan of Bach of Baroque. As I have explained in the past, it's just the way I write. I am a dinosaur.Originally Posted by Michael_uk
It doesn't require courage to post. Just do it! I am going to cut back considerably on the amount that I post because responses to my works are few and far between. It's obvious that I'm not posting what people want to hear. It is just not worth the effort any longer.
Thanks for listening.
nice piece however it makes you kind of exhausted because there's no or little breathing space (rests), it just keeps going and going and going.

Quite a respectable movement, Larry (and who
pays attention to form, anyway).
The one comment I'd make is I think this asks
much more of the "player" in interpretation...
pacing, dynamics, and contrast, particularly.
It's definitely in the music, if not in the rendering;
and in the hands of a live performer, I think the
real shine and flow of this would be abundantly

Don't stop posting. you have fans here who follow your every post (more or less). You post in order to get responses? I hope not. You post because you are fully creative, more than anyone else in this forum I think (certainly more than me!) Why stop posting? Because people may not post back? Becasue people may not like? So what? You write because there is a driving force behind your writing not to please your audience, right? (If so ignore my post).
Please don't stop posting.
I promise to listen your 1st movement, after I have a little bed time qualtiy with my wife (it's 22:56 right now , UK time, she deserves that I think ).
Be back tomorrow or something...
Thank you, Mr. Dave.Originally Posted by etLux
I think I must have been on my ninth cup of coffee when I wrote the above. It definitely needs some "breathing room" inserted.
My best to you and Miz Sos,
No, I'm not going to stop posting, Old Chap. There will just be much less of my works in the future.Originally Posted by nikolas
