I'm new to this part of the forum so I'm looking forward to hearing lots of great music and adding my 2 penneth worth also.
First, a little intro.
I've been an amateur composer for about 30 years now (when I have the time). Mostly classical piano and some orchestral works, but always just for my own entertainment. Until now!
After spending such a long time plonking away on my piano, I thought I really would like to know if anyone else thinks what I do actually has any merit. I have to say that the majority of my music wouldn't be considered modern in style. The main reasons I love classical music was born from the classics of old, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, Schubert etc., etc., and whilst I am all for the advancement of music and musical styles, I'm afraid a lot of the more atonal works and "modern" classical music, leaves me cold, not all of it, as long as I can discern a melody and some nice harmonies, rhythmic or melodic structure, then I'm quite happy, but my stuff usually doesn't fall into that category
With that in mind, I would like to share some of my stuff with the community here and see if you think I should carry on, or not give up my day job! lol.
Thanks in advance for your indulgence and whatever help and advice you can give me.
Here's a dropbox link to "La Marioneta"
A short piano piece that perhaps I might say, is about as far outside the traditional as I get, I hope you like it.https://www.dropbox.com/s/qjxxv2s3j2w1ojk/La%20Marioneta%20%28final%20version%29.mp3?dl=0
Also, if any of you happen to think my work merits it, then I would like to post a few more pieces here, so please tell me what you think, even if you don't like it or think it has no merit, at least I will know, right?
