I held this prelude, rather romantic in style, back from posting for a while, as I had some reservations with it as a composition. It exists in a few guises, with various instrumention combinatioms. However I think on reflection that the piano version is closest to the heart of the piece. Anway on a re-listen I think it is time to "release" it, for better or worse!
So here it is, GPO Steinway of course.
Top of the morning (or is it afternoon?), Larry!
As always your response and comments are greatly appreciated.
Glad you enjoyed the prelude - it gave me a few problems, not so much in overall shape, but in ironing out the smaller details.
Thanks again for your reply.
What a wonderful delight to hear this prelude and in your special way of playing!
So well composed, such a romantic theme and with such delicate nuances here and there...!
Another piece I would love to play on my piano!
Can't wait for your next composition...
I am on listen #4 here and am still entranced. Seriously. What is so captivating is that I hear romantacism mixed with some modern influences that seem to weave in and out with each other. The balance between the two is fascinating, I can't say I've heard anything quite like it.
Although I would say piano is the best choice for the piece I can hear both violin and flute. A minimalist arrangement to be sure for the melodic narrative and probably not piano.
This piece fits the Garritan Steinway extremely well. To me it is a showcase for the product. It makes me want to go out and buy it that is for sure! What controller did you use for playing the piece? Something with great touch to be sure...
