An original work for Violin and Piano by Albert Syeles.

Despite the chromatic opening, this piece is not atonal. Its in the vein of Korngold's Violin concerto or his "Märchen spricht den Epilog" (presented on this site by Sandro Bisotti), or Turina's Piano Trio in D. Essentially conventional style works with unusual chromatic openings and then some very tonal variations. Enjoy.

Albert

Are you playing the piano in this composition or did you just write the piece of have professionals play the parts?

How long did something like this take for you to write?

I am sorry, I cannot comment too much because I am not learned in composition or music theory.

"...It came o'er my ear like the sweet sound, that breathes upon a bank of violets, stealing and giving odour!"

Thanks for asking about this piece.

I originally wrote the kernel of "Atonal Probe" (the 12-tone opening theme) for solo piano, as a classroom exercise long, long ago. That original piece took a few hours to compose, but the version here took a few weeks.

This was actually in the works for performance twice - once in the original form, but it only made it as far as a recording of a rehersal - and then in a commissioned transcription for euphonium and piano, which is waiting for a live (and to be recorded) concert date in England.

I'm not much of a performer, so I played the piano in some parts, but then added more and modified in MIDI. When I added the alternating romantic theme and variation - much of that was directly in MIDI, due to the poly-rhythms and synchopation I wanted to achieve, and that I had difficulty playing myself especially in concert with the violin. The violin was orignally a piano part that I recorded in MIDI and changed timbre via soft-synths.

So yes and no, I am playing the piano - sometimes, and at other times I am "performing" the MIDI parts for both the piano and violin.
