    Reverie op.80 - Requem Reverie (freatured Gofriller solo Cello)

    Hi guys,

    Back with a new piece. Reverie op.80 or "Requiem Reverie" is a piece for string orchestra in memory of the father of my Maths teacher, dead 2 days ago. I always wondered how much can hurt when you lose an important person, a friend, or even a parent. Yesterday, I went to the funeral, and I could sense the sadness, the empty loneliness and desolation, the air filled with desperation. And, when you see the grave, you understand, at the end, we're nothing. I could only imagine how much my teacher cried by her eyes full of tears. When I met her, the only thing I could was to embrace her...

    I made this with Finale2008a, GPO and Gofriller Solo Cello (my first attemp to use this amazing instrument)

    Reverie op.80 - "Requiem Reverie"

    Regards,

    Lovely, despite the circumstances it was written under.

    It's probably the length you wanted, but maybe you could revisit later and expand on it. Just a thought. But really very reflective and well done.

    Andrea,

    This is quite emotional and sensitive, befitting the circumstance that inspired it. The cello was done very nicely, fitting in with the textures you created with the other strings quite well. You certainly captured the lyric quality of it in this piece. Thanks for sharing this.

    A lovely short tribute for a sad occasion.

    …Imperious Caesar, dead and turned to clay,
    Might stop a hole to keep the wind away.
    O, that that earth which kept the world in awe
    Should patch a wall t’ expel the winter flaw!”

    Thank you Steve for the comment. The piece is not so long not only for its nature (that's a "thought" as you defined it) but even for the fact that it will be in a largest project I'm working on and that I want to complete soon.

    Danny,

    Thanks for the kind words. This is only my first attemp to use the Gofriller and I like very much the result. With practice I think I can give it more life than I did in this little tribute.

    Trent,

    Thanks for the synthetic comment.

    Shakespeare is one of my favourite classic english authors. But the best for me are Beckett and Asimov.

    Regards to you all.

    I'm sure your Math teacher would love to hear this. A fitting memorial.

    A very lovely and befitting memorial tribute, Andrea.
    The ebb and flow of this is sublime in its gentle
    characterization of grief and loss.

    Beautifully done, my friend, beautifully done. Perhaps
    you will consider expanding this?

    My best,

    Thank you very much for the comment David. As I told before this will be a part of a new work I'm working on. I've a lot of ideas, but for now I can't say much on how it'll come out. Only time and God can tell. Thank you again, my friend.

    Best Regards,


    Andrea.
