    A TRIO with FLUTE, CLARINET & BASSOON

    My final version of this trio after 6 months.

    This almost seems like incidental music. Like I should be seeing a film go along with it. I can almost catch the story, but it is just beyond my grasp.

    I would say that it is very modern with classical undertones and I guess I need to do another listen to hear what you are saying in this piece.

    There are some neat riffs in it as well as some great harmonizations.

    I will try again

    You’ve come quite a way since you first posted this. I’ve always enjoyed this through the two or three previous incarnations as you’ve cleaned it up. Since the movements are short, it is nice that you combined them up into 1 mp3 instead of dividing it into 3. It all sounds great.

    Thanks Ron.
    In all of the years I performed-HS, Navy, College, Community bands-I
    had a sense in the drama or role-play in all good music. The highs; tensions; releases are part of the performance package. It is this feeling I wish to impart in my longer works.


    Thanks for following along Trent. I noticed that previous, seperate posts were not equally listened to by viewers.

    Gary,

    This is an excellent work!

    You did just a superb job of creating fascinating "conversations" throughout among the three voices. Trios can certainly be tedious to listen to sometimes, but yours held my interest the entire way.

    Thanks for posting this really fine piece of music!

    The idea of chamber-music-as-conversation is well represented here. The sense of dialogues that unfold, interrupted, and resumed is very vivid. It sounds like it would be a lot of fun to play!

    On a technical note - the volume dips, at times, to almost inaudible. It's good to have the dynamic contrast, but sometimes it sounded as though the player had nearly disappeared. But that is a technical quibble: the piece, itself is very effective.

    Thanks for posting this.

    Hi Ron,
    I just listened again, and the only part that was very soft was the beginning of a clarinet solo. Sometimes different playbacks seem to have different results,
    or I've heard this so many times, I'm unawre.
    One disappointment is the recording result of this Finale file. During normal playback I don't have the problem of instrumets sustainingmtheir notes. On the audio version-for no obvious reason-when 2 instruments sustain, one part cuts out.
    I've e-mailed Finale so much without any reply that I don't bother to ask them.

    Congratulations, Gary on the tremendous progress you've made with this. It's an interesting piece of music and I'm glad I had the chance to listen.

    The technical problem you mention on your last reply sounds like your computer isn't keeping up with demands when you're rendering to audio. There has to be a setting to allow much larger buffer zones for rendering purposes so that no data gets lost in the process.

    Thanks for the post.

    Hi Randy,
    Thanks for listening.
    I use TOAST 6 TITANIUM to write the audio. There are
    choices about how it's recorded: best, 16x, etc.
    Is that what you mean-change the setting?
    Thanks for the feedback.
