That would be a good title for this piece actually.

Then your opus 2 could be "Must it B?  It must B!"

I should stop this.  :P  ;D  0:)

I, for one, think it is a true masterpiece. I mean, that B note, who could've thought of such a thing? Too bad there's no sound files, I'd be listening all day long......  0:)

Masterpieces count as of March 27, 2008:

JS Bach - An infinite number 100+ at least

R Corkin - 1

GF Handel - 0  :(

Hey what about my composition? I thought I'd go one better than Mr Cage by a factor of one note, but what a profound and important note it is. More thought provoking still in that one instrument plays whilst the others do nothing. That says much more to me than Cage's effort.

Do you realise the profound humour in my Op1? The pointlessness of the silent performers presence is all the more enhanced by the one performer that plays the single note.

A masterpiece, basically.

It is so good, you should also transcribe it for full orchestra.  :D

An understatement if there ever was one. This is the absolutely ground-breaking work of the first half of the 21st Century. Music was never the same after Monteverdi and Beethoven. Now we have the privilege of being contemporaries with another radical revolutionary.

Hats off, gentlemen! A genius!

Hats back on, gentlemen!

I've hardly gained any registered members from GMG.

Can't imagine why that should B . . . .

So the first violin section alone would play it? Interesting idea, but, as with the orchestral transcriptions of Beethoven quartets, ladies and gentlemen of taste and refinement will always come back to the original...

Oh good God, i remember "If i were but of noble birth" from talkclassical. And come on Rod, you know better than to not resolve the leading tone. Beethoven would not be proud!

Reminds me of a certain Daffy Duck number. Of course, the quotation is from Rigoletto, and not, as Porky erroneously guessed, Cavalleria Rusticana.

On paper you may be right, but see it performed live and all will make sense.

Don't even understand your own work, I see!  ;D  'On paper' he isn't right - we don't know the piece is in C major, so how can we know that the B is a leading note? This could be an atonal (or in this case, to speak accurately and technically, monotonous) piece, of course. Personally, however, I hear it in A minor, of course, and this supertonic B is forever resisting resolution downwards, implying eternity like the end of Das Lied von der Erde

All the more reason to keep it from us, and put it in a time-capsule for the benefit of music lovers 600 years hence.

Though even this plan betokens a most peculiar idea of "benefit" . . . .
