When I was 16, computers were glorified adding machines. The calculator you use in Math class today could do as much and do it much much faster. You live in a time where a 16 year old gets the chance to play with an orchestra and you do it very well. I get jealous when I hear someone your age composing like this as I know you will only get better with time. Those of us that are older just didn't get the kind of opportunities that those of your generation enjoy today. Keep it up.
I think I enjoyed the first movement the best but it was closely followed by the 4th. I will let others comment on the mixing and the what nots.
I was thinking "No WAY he's 16!". I'm embarrased to think back on what I was writing at that age. Then I saw on Sound Click how much you have posted. Remarkable!
A fine suite here. If I may offer one small suggestion: My ears were asking for a change in key or chord use. Variety is, after all, the spice of life. Maybe incorporate more minor chords, modulations etc?
Otherwise, I enjoyed this very much and am in awe of your talent.
Hello, Danial - Welcome to the best music bulletin board on the web!
And let me add, you are certainly a Great new addition to the group here. I think it would be super if more people in your age group would find us here and join in - Know any other Wunderkind composers from school? Direct them here!
I've had your 4 part Serenade playing in my studio this morning, and it's been like having a nice warm breeze wafting through. So very nice! You call it a "little" Serenade - I'd hardly call it "little" - it's Big in a gentle and very pleasant way.
You have a chance to educate me - why does the sub-title cite Lenhoff, but you, Zainali, are the composer - ?
Thanks for sharing the music - I hope you have a chance to take a listen to the wide range of pieces you can always find here in The Listening Room. Hope you come back again soon!
