"Ahnenträume" - Quintet with BBCSO Core
Inspired by our nice idea to do monthly theme based challenges, this piece is for June ('22) under the theme of "Quintet".
It's pure BBCSO Core, using only solo instruments:
Flute, Oboe, Horn, Bassoon and Harp
I really can't encourage you enough to try and work with only 5 instruments. This is the first time I've tried it and not only is it an exciting musical challenge, but it's also extremely comfortable to work on. I've used Cubase for this and had only 7 tracks:
Tempo, Signature and the 5 instruments. Using key switches for the few articulations I've used (all legato, major thrills and some extra techniques).
I could focus almost entirely on the composition. And I'm very glad I could, because it was quite challenging enough. I dearly loved the process, though!
Anyway, this is the first time I've approached this kind of composition and any trained composer may squint through most of it.
I'd be thrilled to get some more advice and would love any feedback. 🧐
Thanks in advance!
