    Re: Intermezzo for Brass Quintet (free MP3 download)

    jaja nalia men jeg synger nu også - og ikke kun i badet, så vær ikke bange.

    for nu at blive ved emnet, så måtte jeg jo lige på biblioteket for at låne alle de CD'er med Frederik de havde. Og jeg har brugt aftenen med at høre dem igennem (opgav at høre Cæcilie-musikken - for træt, sorry) og for ikke at trække denne kommentar i langdrag, så kunne jeg lide det meste, men "Skyggen" fra "Sangen er et Eventyr" slog fuldstændig benene væk under mig - også selv om jeg sad i sofaen. Verdensklasse Frederik!!!!

    Re: Intermezzo for Brass Quintet (free MP3 download)

    Hi Frederik,
    first of all I'm new to this eminent forum. I like your piece very much, as it embraces the noble qualities of the brass. The first and dominant phrase has a quick and... open-minded taste of motif, an elegant fortspinning and a cool ending comment(imitation). It then lingers on increasing in tension, mainly due to the rising trumpets. It is indeed very, very pleasant to listen to. I do think though, that you trick us a little by letting the tuba end with this lonely ess in the last bar, as a comical artefact. I'd prefer it to end with the others on the third count, keeping the taste of dignity alive long after the ending.
    A very enjoyable piece, Frederik!

    Hi Hans, and welcome to MIMF.dk

    Thank you very much for your review of my "Intermezzo" - I'm glad you like it! Regarding the end note: yes, it is indeed a humoristic "artefact", but I don't think it is way out of order in regard to the general caracter of the piece - it is after all an only 1 minute long and have a lighter touch to it (even though the piece is dead serious, I'm always serious about music - even when it contains humor). But I do see what you mean.

    I have just written a piece myself for Brass quintet, which I would like to present to this forum (and which I'd like to have performed). Is it appropriate?
    Regards! Hans

    What a beautiful piece. Though I did notice the small clash at about 35 seconds in. I'm quite pleased, though, with the intricate weaving of art and sound. Two thumbs way up!

    Wink Priere I found most beautiful! Beautifully played too!!

    Guden tak Frederik,

    Aaah finally my pianistic ears' appetite is quenched! I'm so glad I've been giving myself a treat and perusing your CORNER today! The orchestral pieces I've enjoyed are masterful, and finally..

    Which shows amazing ability in composing and performing piano.

    I do not want to sound like that person who mentioned Lord of the Rings about the organ improvisation.. he he.. but being the noteworthy person I am (musical noteworthy only, or should I say noticing) I have to say that the beautiful c-g-a-f motif in Priere, if you added f-c to the end making c-g-a-f-c-f becomes Close Encounters of the Third Kind. I love that song too. I hope you don't mind my reference there.

    Is Priere a theme and variations kind of thing? Isn't that a French word or name? What does it mean? I'm sorry to ask dumb questions.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Phoenix, Intermezzo, Cantilena, Let there be Light and Light On Your Path. I even light the lightness of the titles (pun intended he he.. ). I often use for my signature 'Love and light-being'. So I am a fan, musical follower, forgive my asking:

    Is there a story or myth associated with "Lys Pà Din Vej?" Your forums have lit the way, you shine very bright, but puns aside, I am inspired by the titles as well and would love to hear any stories about what they mean.

    Thank you googols for your forums, music and everything. Sincerely, Teo

    Thank you, Teo!

    "Prière" (which means "Prayer" in French) is actually an improvisation, in the same way as the Cantilena.

    The story behind "Lys på din vej" (or "Light on your path") is that Lys på din vej was a a piece I composed for - and performed at - the Christening of Prince Nikolai (Son of Prince Joachim and, then, Princess Alexandra) back in 1999. It is meant to cast light on the path of life for the child. A year later I recorded the CD "Lys på din vej", and included some improvisations, amongst them "Prière".

    It is my indeed my pleasure to provide these forums, for the joy and - yes - enlightenment of music lovers from around the world!

    Best regards,
    Frederik

    Thumbs up A beautiful sentiment, and a very beautiful piece of music

    A beautiful sentiment, and a very beautiful piece of music as well.

    You have completely succeeded with your forums, they have lit the way, lightened my load and maybe even enlightened me. From a sordid (musically that is) past I am now a classical pianist (hopefully).

    I'm always in awe of great organs as well. Thanks you for sharing so much of your music and experiences. Wishing you every success and joy along your path!

    Sincerely,
    Teo
