Quentin Kim - Dreamscape
« on: June 16, 2021, 08:10:49 PM »
This is not a piano solo sorry. But I wanted to share this as I have posted a number of solo compositions by this most sensitive composer and of course, in this violin-piano duo the piano writing is superb

Dreamscape is a collection of 12 preludes written in 2009. Like Springtime
Glances for solo piano this suite has a perfect combination of lyrical and virtuoso, of melancholy and liveliness.

This past year at home I got deep into video editing and was able to give this a retro fee through the use of sepia tints and some inspiration from silent film.

Hope you enjoy the music above all else !

Beautiful playing, the both of you! 

The musical writing is both intimate and unashamedly expressive.  Fantastic interaction between the two parts. 

Your silent film video treatment was well done.  If you wanted even more of that vibe, you could experiment by making greater use of intertitles.  Silent films also used tints to suggest changes in lighting or mood. 



Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach
