I have finished a composition that I plan to hand to the Academy Flute Choir, however I would appreciate any feedback on it before I do so,
Feedback would be much appreciated!
i've been meaning to ask this for a while, but what is patrick doing in the group icon?
This my piano concerto https://musescore.com/user/31736272/scores/5784301. Enjoy!
If you listen to this score it will be stuck in your head for the rest of the week
and probably fill you w/ memories from your childhood
If you haven't seen it yet, here is the link to my flute sonata:
I nicknamed it The Haydn Sonata because I am trying to get across a Haydnesque feel to it. I have noticed these things predominant in each composer of the Classical Period Trifecta:
- Haydn: Humor, melodic and harmonic surprises
- Mozart: Alberti bass, effortless grace
- Beethoven: Sheer power, even when the melody is more lyrical
Haydn is the one who inspired me to write this flute sonata. I wrote the sonata exposition in just an hour and this is the first sonata for a duet that actually has a finished exposition.
There are quite a few surprises in my sonata exposition. Here they are:
Bar 5: Sudden entry of the flute and absence of the piano
Bar 6: Sudden reentry of the piano
Bar 10: Short diminuendo, like the theme isn't quite done yet
Bar 11: Short staccato variant of the theme over a syncopated bass
Bar 14: Sudden forte cadence, theme is now finished
Bar 15: Piano dynamic in transition material right after a cadence at forte, sudden absence of the flute
Bar 21: Forte dynamic when transition material is taken up an octave, flute comes back
Bar 26: Piano dynamic yet again, descending trill motive
Bar 41: Very busy texture as the repeat comes closer
Bar 47: Sudden change in texture, sudden dynamic change as it repeats
I'm wondering, is my sonata exposition Haydnesque in its nature? I tried to get a Haydnesque feel to it by being more humorous than serious with the music. Anything impossible for the flutist? Does it feel like a Molto Allegro to you(tempo is at quarter note = 140 BPM)? Or should I just take the Molto off and just have Allegro as my tempo marking?
I'm a beginner composer so don't go too hard on me, and feedback is very much appreciated
