Well, this is the first classical piece I ever created. It's a prelude or maybe an overture to a piano concerto :) For more information etcetera, please read the description! It's not recorded, but it's a midifile; so there is little to no dynamic unfortunately and the instruments don't sound as pure and good as it would sound with real instruments too, please cut me some slack haha!

Thank you very much! Well, I wasn't inspired by winter; because I kind of just write and the taste comes afterwards, but I feel a winter kind of feel :)

Yeah, I wrote this when I was thirteen and wrote it first for piano alone; after that I added the rest of the instruments, but wasn't that experienced in panning and creating a main vocal line (maybe getting a bit overwhelmed by the great harmonies men can create!). In the real piece the piano is more in the front and you can hear a lot more of the main body. It sounds kind of weird now, I agree (the piano is another midi than the rest of the instruments).

Yeah, I agree! The next act has a lot of modulations and minor-major switches. The third act (second movement) is a major (mixolydian) piece with only a little twist in the middle and the last movement is a scherzando (before the scherzando I have made an intermezzo; which makes it a 5 act piece).

Again, thank you very much! I appreciate it a lot, I will come back to your comment later on and work on that main body :)

I know my chords, I'm attending the conservatory next year :) It's not really full mixolydian, it's just a chordprogression that contains a D7 in a otherwise ionian (and aeolian) piece :)

Look, and THAT's why I uploaded it hahah. I tried to simulate it myself, but I failed miserably haha. If you ever had the time to do such thing or anybody else it would mean the world to me. I made the (de)crescendo's, dynamics and accelerando etc visible in the sheetmusic I made. But I agree that it still must be very difficult to make those dynamics.

And thanks very much for all the compliments, I am very insecure about this piece; so this kinda made my day! :)

And btw; I do have a good piano-vst, so that one shouldn't be that big of a problem or otherwise I can record the real thing one time or another if I get a microphone in the future :)

I like this piece. It has a lot of possibilities. I smiled listening to it because it wouldn't sound out of place in the first DOOM game. Fully developed, I can see it being used as the backdrop for a TV movie. If I had the time, and the MIDI score, I'd run it through Cubase and use Miroslav Philharmonik to realise it...if only dynamics weren't so damned difficult to program! (I don't mean static loudness, I mean creschendos and decreschendos).
Oops, forgot to quote. I don't know this forum yet, so I don't know what people get in their inbox and which things they don't :x

if you want to be a composer of any kind, the first thing you must do before anything else is develop a thick hide.
I know! But look; this is my first composition I ever made, so it has a lot of memories and emotions attached to it :) But you're still absolutely right, I think I'll just need to think ''I like it, so mission accomplished''.
