    Default Lento for Piano and Orchestra

    Here is a piece some people liked who are into my melodic side. Originally was inspired by Mozart's Piano Concerto 27 Larghetto, but morphed into something different, sort of pop classical or maybe a bit of old Hollywood movie music sound.

    Here is a revised version. Put in more snappy rhythms and cleaned up some of the harmony.

    Hi Phil,

    Not bad. The piano sections could do with a bit more variation as regards note length, but the orchestration was good.

    Thanks. I think there is still a bit of less tolerable sappiness (at least for me), that I fine tuned a bit more since by adding some snappier rhythms. The goal is to find the right balance in restraint, which I think isn't quite there yet.

    Here it is just as good as the material would allow I think. I think got rid of its sappiness in some of the piano parts before.

    This sounds like Pop-Neo-Classical.
    I think I would've enjoyed a more Phil version of this piece.

    more "Phil"? Actually I like quite a bit of straight forward melodic pop/classical, and movie music schmaltz in controlled quantities, which has a certain directness, in contrast to my chromatic side, with little in between.

    Ah, I think I finally got it. I think the sappiness in a part I didn't like at the beginning was because it sounded too pop cliché and is also less balanced and asymmetrical in shape. I can live with this version, and in fact I quite like it myself. Tweaked a few other parts too.
