You know something? I understand this music and I can relate to it. There was a time when the piano was my only instrument and had to be able to bear witness to all my musical thought. The melodic content here is minimalist in a sense, in that no more than a dozen notes can completely enunciate the thought and the telling of a succession of these meanings is how the thing unfolds. Do you listen to robins sing? I am not sure if you have them where you are but the regular north american robin we have around here is very, very evocative and some of the older ones have a great deal to say. In the evening at dusk I have heard them go on and on, never repeating entire phrases, but sometimes using the same "word" many times. I wish I knew what they are saying!
Thanks for sharing!
Nice piece. I cannot say it as poetically as sd cisco, but it indeed has an evocative quality in its simplicity. It doesn't evoke happiness though. Did you have a specific scenery in mind while writing this? It "sounds" a bit like a hill, surrounded by forest, and a light fog under a setting autumn sun.
DPDAN: I will check out the Steinway collection.
FLWrd: Thanks! No, I have not a specific scenery in mind. When I was going to
save the score, Scenery pops up. We will see what the other Scenery´s will
make the mind think about.
Just a side note on the Garritan Authorized Steinway - Basic version. Prompted by DanKury, I bought this downloadable piano and it is the best $99 I ever spent on an instrument! Big, full, rich in texture and nuance, responsive and sweet to the ears - I highly recommend it!
Hello, Jonte. Very interesting piece you have here! I enjoy the simple, but wandering quality it has. I can certainly imagine a peaceful walk with lush grasses, and perhaps sparse trees. It's is difficult to stop myself from trying to apply an image to it, especially when you name it "Scenery I"
