    "Round Robin" (Two Versions)

    Here are two different versions of my study in counterpoint, "Round Robin".

    "Round Robin" (Woodwinds)

    "Round Robin" (Synthesizers)

    Well master Larry,


    You did it again. Your imagination has no limits! What a nice bunch of woodwinds in a thrilling canonic theme. This is miraculous. I'm not so fond of the synth version (that has nothing to do with the instrument as such, but rather with the somewhat aggressive sound that doesn't show any emotion), but it sounds pretty joyful though.

    Thanks for sharing, Larry.

    I really liked the Woodwind version as well. The counterpoint was well written, I could follow each line clearly. A happy, cheerful composition!

    The synth version was ok as well but I could imagine it being played on harpsichord with great effect. A Bach fugue?

    Well done as always!

    G'day,

    To play it on harpsichord would require the performer to have five hands!

    Thanks for listening and responding, Mate.

    Really enjoyed the piece. The counterpoint seemed to work really well. You certainly capture a certain style of music. I listened only to the wood wind version. I find writing for winds, even virtually, the most challenging of all.

    I find pleasure in writing for winds...and brass...and synths and... :-)

    I am pleased that you liked it. Thanks.

    Great counterpoint work Larry.

    Your counterpoint pretty much steals the show on these but why not.

    I wonder if the melody always comes first for you or maybe a counterpoint idea that helps create the melody.

    I enjoyed them!

    In this case the main melody came first then the counterpoint and then the counterpoint to the counterpoint and then...

    I'm glad you liked them, Mister Phil. Thanks, as always, for your input.

    Larry!

    This is great! I LOVE the synthesizer version! I can almost see Rick Wakeman or Keith Emerson with their stacks of synthesizers playing this piece. And, by the way, it's not a stretch for them to play this style of music! Here are web-links to Rick Wakeman and Keith Emerson. There are photos of them in action! LOL!

    Thoroughly enjoyed the listen, Mr. Larry! Thank you for sharing!
