    Default "Mellissia: Suite for wind trio" !!!! Reviews and criticisms wanted!

    My most recent composition, after a few years of dormancy from this forum I've come back with renewed perspective and compositions.

    http://soundcloud.com/mccade-smith/mellissia

    If anyone would rather view the score please let me know and I will post it as well.

    Please please! tear it apart, a composer can never hear too many opinions on a piece.

    Thank you as always!!

    I really like the ideas that are going on in this piece. The bass clarinet seems to really hold everything together and I'm digging the almost minimalistic repetition that's present.

    I'm not so sure about a couple of the key changes that I think I'm hearing in there and a few rests that seem a bit out of place in the overall piece, but otherwise it's definitely cool.

    Here is the score

    Iforgotmypassword, please let me know where this is... I think you're referring to the transition into f minor? what about the time shift from 6/8 to 2/4 does that content wise flow?

    I like it. I'm not a huge fan of minimalism (particularly of the likes of Glass), this doesn't get too repetitive beautiful harmonies.
