I’ve been absent here for some time now, so I’ll fill you in on what I’m doing. In particular, what I’m doing musically. I have started a piano concerto!
At first, I didn’t want to share it with anybody, and present it when it was finished. This is justified for me, since it seems that if I get negative, unspecific feedback then I give up. But I’m deciding to be stronger than that.
I’ll share with you my journey of writing this piano concerto. Feel free to comment, suggest improvements (please only do this if you listen to classical music, though), etc. Of course “make it longer” isn’t a good suggestion, because I’m working on that :-).
The file I’m posting today is the exposition and the very first tip of the development. The exposition is about three minutes long. I intend the development to be about 7, and then a conclusion for one or two. The file will probably not sound very good unless you have a kick-ass sound module (and if that, not unless your sound module is balanced the same way as mine), so use your imagination. Listen to the notes, not the sound. I won’t put an mp3 up unless someone asks nicely.
So here it is: the first 3:45 of Luke Palmer’s Piano Concerto no. 1 in B minor.
UPDATE: By the way, I’m only talking about the first movement. I’m in the process of formulating the form and getting some rudimentary ideas for the last two movements.
UPDATE: And by request, here is the MP3.
