Here is my latest composition, realised in GPO, using Stradivarius violin and Steinway piano. The piece is a lyrical melody, classical in style, in ABA form, in D major.
The idea for the tune came to me some years ago, but only recently completed.
Hope you enjoy!
A simple, beautiful melody as a cavatina should be, with the stunning sound of the Stardivarius expertly utilized. You also made sure the piano wasn't relegated to "second banana" status in the story, which made listening all that much more enjoyable. This is a very fine piece of music!
Thank you so much for taking the time to put this up for us. Your Cavatina is beautiful music - and oh man, isn't that something I'm always wishing there to be more of in the world.
The gentle old fashionedness of it, even sentimental in its mood, is very appealing.
I'd like to pass on one technical observation--I understand you're using the Strad in GPO, and it's more limited in its expressiveness than the stand alone Strad--naturally. But a bit more use of cc1 volume variety could make the instrument's performance even more life-like in your nice recording.
Very glad to see you posting again!
I enjoyed hearing your Cavatina!
The melodic line is unique and excellent. The harmony is well composed and streams along fluently with the melody and the warm sound of the violin.
In the middle part the piano comes out too, and after its solo I liked that part where the violin plays in octaves.
I agree with Randy about the CC1, it could do wonders, and I feel that the last chord is superfluous.
Thanks for posting your original composition and looking forward to your next piece!
