    Symphonic Suite No. 1 for Bassoon: Movement 2

    This is the second movement to my short [but] Suite for bassoon. It's inspired by my break up with my girlfriend. Those of you who may remember her being the inspiration for the piece in the first place, when we were dating. It's not finished, but the main theme will pretty much continue with the rest of the piece.

    Tuba:

    Sad to hear of your recent sadness, and your music
    does sound a little melancholy, but it is a nice addition
    to your suite.

    Better things are coming your way.

    Very interesting little piece. It conveys a pondering emotion and maybe a little reflection too. I like the interplay between the bassoon and the piano.

    I have listened to it through twice and have enjoyed it both times. Thank you for sharing this little gem with us.

    It a mix of emotions for sure. Rather nice!

    I can sense some sadness but also a sense of closure on a unhappy chapter in your life.

    Women are more emotional but breakups usually affect men more. It's probably a primal response to keep men from straying away from the woman's orbit of influence. The more free minded males failed to pass their genes on because they weren't within the target zone often enough.

    Music heals the soul.

    Nice job Benjamin.

    To me there is a hint of sadness, but more a promise of determination for a better tomorrow.

    So nicely evocated, if such a word exists.

    Interesting choice of instruments too, it works well.

    Thanks for all the comments guys. It's been nothing but drama with me and my ex, and I think it will be a even greater inspiration for the 3rd movement.
