Wow! Impressive! I've never written music, but I have performed and been in choir. Here's my take on each individually, for what it may be worth.

Bass Concerto

I think it sounds wonderful! The only thing that comes to mind is the 32 second piano introduction. To me, that's too long of a "not featured" instrument solo before the featured instrument(s) join. Oh, and it ends too soon. I think that's due to the size of the file, because it sounds like you continue beyond what is played in the clip.

I think this has real potential, and would love to hear the full score.

Clarinet Concerto

From a strictly music theory paradigm, I like it. The sound on the recording is too electric/digital to me. The sound reminded me of a midi sound (again, not the score per say, just the sound). It's a keyboard sounding tone (all three).

IMHO, the clarinet is a solo or featured instrument. I don't think it works well in multiples without accompaniment. Again, that's just my opinion.

Brass Quintet

Ditto the digi/midi sound. Horns are instruments that I think work well as a solo, featured, and multiples. I'd like to hear actual horns used to get the authentic horn sound. Theoretically, the score is cool!

Flute Concerto

The piano introduction is not as long, which is good (again, IMHO). At the same time, the end is all piano, but there may be more that didn't make it on the recording as it seems to end without resolution.

I think the flute isn't the right instrument for this duet, mainly because it is such a airy, "fragile", soothing sound versus some fairly assertive piano (Beethoven came to mind) arrangement. I really like the score on this. Of the four, this and the Bass Concerto are my favorites and IMHO have the best potential. I actually like the piano score on the flute piece more then the piano score on the bass piece. I think the respective scores for the bass and flute are equal.

Taking each as a whole as scored, I think the Bass Concerto is the best. It is closely followed by the Flute Concerto, with an idea offered of using an instrument other then the flute. Maybe even a stringed instrument? Or, having listened to it again, harpsichord (sp?)? I think it could work as dualing pianos, piano and harpsichord, or maybe dualing harpsichord (or two musicians using one instrument?).

The Horn/Brass Quintet stands at #3, mainly because of the digi/midi sound. I think the actual instruments would sound best. I recall as a youth we had a brass quartet in church, and it sounded great.

That leaves the Clarinet Trio, which I explained my thoughts previously. An excellent score in the making, but wrong instrument chosen IMHO.

Kudos to you and your efforts! Keep up the great work!

Thanks alot
First off I did write it all on a low quality MIDI program called Finale 2003 that I got from my school (so you know it sucks).

Actually that is not a very long piano entry before the bass ive heard much longer orchestral entries before the soloist
For example Mozart Clarinet Concerto - the first movement it takes 2 minutes before the clarinet actually plays
And His Bassoon Concerto takes 1 min 12 sec before the bassoon comes in
and i'm sure there is much longer in others that i cant think of

You havn't heard any Clarinet Quintets have you? Mozart wrote a few
and Brahms wrote alot of clarinet stuff
they sound great together... just maybe not on this program.

The brass quintet was 2 Bb trumpets, trombone, baritone T.C., and tuba
I do agree the horn has a great solo sound
I love Mozarts Horn Concerto No. 4

And actually that ending part that is all piano isnt really the ending
it was my attempt at a second movement
the 1st movement ends when the flute ends.


Again, thanks for listening
thanks for the feedback
I was beginning to think nobody was gonna say anything.

Ive got a ton more pieces to put on
In fact! I'll put one on right now
I think u'll like this one ;)

Outside of the midi, this is the best by far. The complexity of the score coupled with the speed (I can't think of the proper term, it's been a while since I've worked with music) keeps the music exciting and the musician on their toes to keep up. I'd love to hear this live, because I don't think there would necessarily be any changes needed to the finished score (minor if any).

You got a gift here that you ought to run with. I know it can get pricey (sp?) but with the samplings so far, I think you ought to pursue it. I see this Symphony as a possible theme or overriding score for a movie or TV show.

Well that is just plain stupid! Music can be just as much about fun as it can be about anything else. Those people are closed minded and ignorant IMO.
