    Here is an updated version of this piece, an homage to Liszt. Over the top dramatic, and slightly progressive beyond the romantic period. It is by far my most technically difficult for piano.

    Final version, this time I think. I get a cozier feeling with this one. This piece is harder to pull off.



    I thought I would share a passage in the intro of Brahms Violin Concerto I always found drove me a bit nuts. It sounded he had a grander thing going, so I always expected some progression but instead he just performed diminution on the same unchanged theme (I think likely leading to some critics dismissing his music as "meaningless twaddle" as some called it as an example). It sounded too rigid to me anyway. Here is my imagined progression after the original shown first.

    The Brahms was exciting, nice work!

    This is a canon at the beginning of this serenade. It combines simple, interval, and inversion types.

    Updated these pieces. One of the reasons I've updated a lot of pieces lately is I got new decent speakers which reveal a lot more detail and clarity my internal PC sound speaker didn't previously. Also I think I've reached a higher level of comfort in writing.

    I'm happy you are becoming more comfortable with writing!

    Improved the chromatic harmony and counterpoint in this version



    Was able to achieve more inevitability by changing to a consistent metre (should have known earlier since this isn't a modern sort of fugue). Still have some syncopation in the subject, which I still want to keep. I'll probably leave it at this.

    After not knowing exactly what I was aiming for, I finally realized the subject in 2 bars of 4/4 and then 2 bars of 3/4 time, and massaged the counterpoint around this. You may also notice the tonic G rarely appears in the subject, but used the dominant D more. I used to think it was in Mixolydian. I think I always implied G though, even though the final chord is D.

    Check out my first Jazz piece. I threw in all the Messiaen modes of transposition scales throughout, along with common Jazz gestures.

    Is that a play on "In A Silent Way"? I like the work very much!

    My virtual soloists screwed up (not me ) and left out the first mode. I had them do another take, and also to fix a few chords and notes.

    I still hated the sound of the sax intro. I thought it was only the sound of the sax, but I found out the register or notes had something to do with it. Here it the sax intro sounds much better. Also fixed some other stuff. I think this is the final version or 'master take'

    Do you have percussion in your program? It would be cool to hear some on the Jazz piece.

    I was afraid it would be distracting at first. I added some here, I'm no Max Roach, but doesn't sound too bad to me.
