    Default An Energetic String Quartet

    Well, it has been quite some time since I posted here. But here I am back again, to post some music. . . I hope you all like it.

    Can you be old fashioned and new at the same time? Hmmm. . . I can't say. But I did want to write something fun and full of energy, and this is the result. I also recorded and filmed this video. Let me know what you think

    Wow, I loved it. Great performance. Nice closeup shots.

    Welcome Back.
    Sig: I am currently traversing some of my French collection of music. I think that for the most part it is lovely.

    Les Six: The members were: Georges Auric (1899–1983), Louis Durey (1888–1979), Arthur Honegger (1892–1955), Darius Milhaud (1892–1974), Francis Poulenc (1899–1963), and Germaine Tailleferre (1892–1983). Marcelle Meyer was not an official member but had an association with Les Six.

    Very commendable. I liked that "folk-like/modal" melody that very satisfyingly marked out the structure (F-E-D-A-B-C-B natural-A-E).

    Thanks so much . Oh I see what you’re saying, they are the notes of the melody. Yes, definitely a modal one... Dorian actually, though it shifts ... an F# in the second phrase making it major for a while, and later too shifting between B nat and Bb. Subtle tensions and latent dissonance, like in medieval music (which is where some of the harmonic technique comes from). I guess you could say it has elements of “proto-tonality.” I’ll put the score up when I get around to it . Thanks again for listening !!
