This was my entry in the MakeMusic contest.
I really enjoyed the harmonic progressions throughout. It simply gave the work the atmospheric quality that you were seeking, and I loved the instrumental echoes with the flute and oboe. Ok, I am going to be straight up with you. If you ever wanted this work published, I personally believe all you would have to do is first arrange it for concert band, since concert band music tends to be more marketable these days,and sandwich this selection that you compose in between two faster parts also based on the main theme (form: Fast-Slow-Fast again-Slow and Grand.) That’s just me though. Wonderful work.
Thank you so much. I'm glad you enjoyed it! I'm actually working on a longer symphonic piece that I'm going to work this into. I don't have any experience writing for concert bands but it's something that's on my agenda to start doing. Thank you for your comments. They are much appreciated.
Better late than never, David - So Big Thanks for posting your Finale contest entry. I think I managed to not hear this during the course of that contest - Great stuff. Excellent- Thanks for letting us hear it now. OH man now that odd little motif come back to haunt me again! hehe.
Thank you. I'm glad to share my music with those who will listen.
Thanks again for the music - it rises above an otherwise slightly disastrous Facebook driven contest.
Thanks for the heads up. I'll remember to post my tunes there from now on.
Right after the contest, most of us who frequent this forum posted our entries right here in General Discussion, since it was a kind of special occasion. It's great to have another entry show up, even though it's been so long.
Cool. Yea I haven't been to this site in a while. Then I realized how awesome a community it is and wanted to be a part....so here I am! lol I'm glad there was/is another place for all the great entries to be heard.
Is it REALLY just Finale?
If so, you are a master in HP!
