@ all thanks for the feedback. It is hard to come by pianists who offer feedback, and certainly the feedback I get on YouTube is half the time derogatory and unhelpful, and half the time it seems like the only people who post comments to my videos are under the age of 15—Copy “unhelpful.”
“Somewhere in between I would say.”
I thought you would be less kind! What do I think of it myself? I prefer not to say. It is similar to when someone asks if I am a pleasure to be with, I could say “yes, I am the most enjoyable person to be around, hang out with,” though others tell me differently, sometimes the exact opposite, that I am annoying and boring to be around. As to whether the piece invoke the flight of a Eurasian Eagle-Owl, I do not know, I have never seen one fly, or if I have I did not know it was a Eurasian eagle-owl at the time. It is simply a title that I hope catches the attention of people. Possibly the glissando in the piece brought a birds flight to mind?
“First, what does "Полет Филин" mean?”
it means ‘Flight of the Eurasian Eagle-Owl.’ Or it is supposed to mean that if the translation site is correct.
“There is a bit of a sense of unfulfilled impressionism.”
I see. Yes, I realize that the dreamy type of harmony that might be expected from a flight of a bird fell short of delivery, thanks for the feedback. “
"The other thing to me is that your development is cut short. It begins to sound as if it is leading towards a climax and then nothing. It stops, returns to a quote from the beginning and ends with an arpeggio.”
Maybe the piece could be longer? When I compose (or what I like to call compose) I like to create short pieces. Long pieces are nice, but shorter pieces seem to hold attention longer.
“In short, I think that you have some good ideas but that you need to explore their possibilities some more.”
If I create a longer piece I feel I will bore the audience and the harmony will be slackened. Great Composers have shown that pieces can be long and still have fire after so many minutes, such as Tchaikovsky and Holst to name a couple. Thanks again for the feedback.
