    Arrow ~ ~ Un Momento Espressivo ~ ~

    Hi to all,

    I missed working with the Steinway…!

    This piece popped up after a couple of days of
    troubled thoughts over something.
    And it suited just right for a Steinway project!

    It is very short but that is what it wanted to be… lol

    Your turn now to listen and Enjoy!

    it's very pretty.
    there are a few moments toward the end that have a Fauré delicateness to them.

    there are some beautiful chromatic passages in the opening section that could bear some expansion. I think you're returning to your home key a little bit too rapidly.

    still a very pretty piece, most definitely "espressivo".

    Being associated with Fauré, whose music I admire, is a great compliment for me.

    I know what you mean... There's no doubt that I could have developed it more,
    but then it wouldn't have been 'Un Momento' anymore...

    still a very pretty piece, most definitely "espressivo".
    Many thanks for listening and commenting and glad you found it 'espressivo'!

    Very nice Yudit.

    While listening, I felt that your melodic build-up near the 1 minute mark would
    probably sound more convincing if the octaves included harmony notes as well.

    Then, returning to the single notes for melody, as you have exceptionally done,
    would further reinforce the "letdown" after the climax.

    Wonderful Yudit! The pace of it is the thing, besides the harmonies, it has a "sureness", a very focused and purposeful evocation, I admire it greatly!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hello Jack,

    I knew there was going to be some comment about the octave part… lol.

    Analyzing this part now I can say that the middle voice that plays from start to finish
    includes already the harmony notes.

    But what I could have done is to double them also in octaves
    and I think that would have given it a fuller and stronger feel.

    I consider all comments and use the appropriate ones in my next projects.

    Many thanks for listening and for your precise comments.

    Hi sd cisco,


    Wonderful feedback!

    It shows me that what I felt and strived to express
    is really heard and felt by others.

    Many thanks for listening and for giving me a boost forward!

    Simple and beautiful.
    I really liked some of the more dissonant chords (arpeggiations) towards the end.
    Could imagine those leading into a 'B' section.
    Nevertheless, very lovely. thanks for posting.

    Thanks,

    Oh such a comforting, peaceful piece to wake up to this morning. It is the first day that the morning has started out warmer that zero with everything frozen. It is a balmy morning and the piece fits perfectly. But, I say that just because that idea of yours was short that you can't expand that wonderful motif you have come up with. Please consider that and don't shelf this gem of an idea.

    Thanks for making my morning such a perfect start!

    Hello Dan,

    Lovely to read your words!

    I’m glad you noticed those dissonant notes at the end… I like them too.
    Interesting how these little details come up unexpectedly while one is improvising.

    The reason this piece is what it is, is because I consider it as an improvisation
    in which all I had to say at that certain moment was said and felt complete.

    Many thanks for listening and your most welcome comments.
