    Piano Concerto final movement

    Hi,

    One of my earlier GPO attempts.

    see www.myspace.com/grahamkeitch

    It's the final movement of my piano concerto. As I don't play keyboards, I find scoring for piano rather challenging - hence I came up with a concerto that was deliberately spacious and not over complicated. Feedback welcome please. In particular, is the volume about right? BTY, I've reposted Images of Bude (4) as this was rather low on volume.

    Regards, Graham

    Very nice work, Graham!

    Good use of restraint, allowing the melody carry itself forward.
    ...And a terrific melody at that!

    There's a nice dialogue interplay between the orchestration and the piano that works very well.


    I really enjoyed this!

    Nicely done!

    Thanks Jeff, I really appreciate your comments. Some of this earlier stuff involved a lot of effort and it's difficult to know whether it's worth revisiting it now that GPO and Finale have moved forward. Or whether to just concentrate on writing fresh stuff. The entire concerto is about 25mins which is why I just posted the last bit of it!

    Many thanks for your feedback. Regards, Graham

    Nice work on this Graham; I enjoyed listening!

    I stopped by previously but had not time to comment.

    The one area I might look at is perhaps carrying some lines more...
    but that's perhaps reflective of my own stylistic leanings.

    Hi David, thanks for listening in and commenting. For those of us that are testing the water, your comments are a great inspiration and source of guidance. I put out an earlier piece to guage reaction. This is partly because I'm struggling to reach a balance between concentrating on new stuff and trying to improve (salvage) earlier work. Your feedback provides food for thought and is much appreciated.

    Regards, Graham
