    Acceptance - Strad, Grofiller, Piano and strings

    This piano part and theme is from a first take on a piano part which I never used at the time (getting distracted and developing the second take into a completely different song) Fortunately, I had the good sense to save the first take. I then added the Stradivari and Gofriller cello parts and some string parts and here it is. This is a lighter more upbeat piece than my usual ones.

    Any comments/suggestions are always welcome on any aspect of the piece.

    Hope you enjoy listening to it!

    Well now--It's so wonderful to hit Play and have nothing but a great, enriching time listening. That sure happened with "Acceptance," Del--I love it. Excellent string work. Nice strains that are almost reminiscent, then veer into the new places where You wanted them to go.

    Thank you very much.

    WOW!, very beautiful in both composing and rendering. I feel soul-shaking.

    BTW, I often feel Strad timbre somewhat hard. Can we make its sound softer with EQ, reverb and so on?

    A very moving piece, Del, in its gentle outlines and
    perfectly blended string voices -- a highly poignant
    conversation of recognition and concession to an
    inexorable... Acceptance.

    I particularly enjoyed the sense of dialogue in this,
    the weaving together of the lines in a mutually
    supportive agreement. Beautifully done!

    My best,

    Wow, what a great song! The melodies, the structure, the title, it all fits together so wonderfully. Thank you for sharing this!

    If I were the complaining type I would say that the strings are a bit loud and occasionally obscure the "foundational" role of the piano, but my hearing stinks so uhm... don't listen to that.

    The song is great. Thanks again.

    Beautiful! The first time I think I've heard the Stradivari and Gofriller together in same piece- they sound fabulous. Is the piano from GPO? The piano does get a little too low in the mix in some places.

    Quite beautiful, and great use of the solo strings. My only thought was that the balance was little off - the violin was to far forward, too prominent in relation to the cello and piano. Perhaps a touch more of reverb? Ok, enough with the criticisms...

    This piece reminds me of the way Mendelssohn's music was once described: sentimental, in the nicest sense of the word. Really enjoyed this!

    Thanks for sharing it.

    Very nice, insert any synonym for beautiful here. I like the lonely, sparse arrangement very much, made me think I was watching a Sean Penn (directed) film, which may or may not be a compliment I guess, but, of course, I mean it to be.
    I listened to some of your other pieces on Soundclick and was very impressed by them all, specifically the last bit of the "Peace Movement"..

    Tatsu Much thanks for listening and your comments. Yes I do find the instruments a bit harsh or hard as you say. Sometimes you want that but sometimes you don't - your comment is food for my thoughts because I listen to some soloists playing real violins and they are so round and smooth sounding. Part of it is in the use of the expression pedal[/QUOTE]

    I'm not one for analytical interpretation of music nor intellectually complicated compositions- if I like it, I like it. This has been looping on my machine ever since I downloaded it. First playthrough brought tears to my eyes-still brings a lump to the throat.
    Thank you.
