Topic: A little sonata for flute and piano

    Red face A little sonata for flute and piano

    Now that school has started again, I'm up to my knees in homeworks and such meaning that I have less time to dedicate to composition. But the time I so far manage to get over has resulted in this little piece: a Sonata for piano and flute in C major. Please, take your time and listen

    You'll find the three movements at the top of the page:

    Hi Felix,

    I couldn't play your pieces - I was taken to a default soundclick page

    The new link worked fine. You should edit your original post with this link so people don't get frustrated and not read farther down the thread.

    I just took a real quick listen to the three movements of your flute sonata and enjoyed what I heard. Very classical era sounding.

    I listened to the first movement and it sounds like a nice baroque piece.

    I would like to be a little closer to the instruments as there is plenty of room here and no need to be back too far. It would give it a little more intimacy.

    Liked it! Very enjoyable.

    I agree with the comments about needing more presence - don't be shy!

    I have just one small suggestion. Change the key of the second movement - F or G major might be nice, although the octaves might require a little fiddling. A common little trick from the period.

    Ah, yes, the price one has to pay for working in complete secrecy I compose with my headphones on. Meaning that the sound quality differs from when it's played through the speakers..., I'll see to it that it's changed for the better

    I have the same problem, I have to compose with my headphones on or I'd drive my roommate nuts with notes...

    Anywho... I don't particularly like flute stuff. If this where some better instrument...like say... the tuba...then you'd have my attention.
    All seriousness though, I really did enjoy listening. My favorite was the second movement. Simple and elegant. Not to rambunctious (sp?). So for you to really advertise this piece, I thinkyou should offset the instruments a little more. Piano on the left, flute on the right. Not extreme, but about a quarter turn on the balance nobs should do it. Slightly dry, but enough wetthat it does have a recital hall "flavor" to it. You could make it more life by recording ambience ofan audience. lol. Like a chair squeek, a cough. Baby crying. You get the gist. was kidding about that btw. Anyway, bring us more. I know you have homework.I'm right there with ya.

    Hi, Felixissimo

    What fun, playful music, So nicely crafted. And with some nice surprises throughout to keep us on our toes--like the sudden key shifts, I like it all.

    A very courtly, graceful sonata, Danial; clearly with
    the refined sentiments of another age.

    The third movement was my favorite of the three;
    with it's several moments of surprise and diversion...
    and its elaboration near the end.
