For the past two weeks or so I have been sketching and orchestrating a new piece of music. I’ve wanted to write a piano concerto for a long time now and this is the result of my efforts:
I could say it’s partially inspired by Mahler, Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev, Tchaikovsky, Star Trek, Stargate, Nobuo Uematsu, Joe Hisaishi, John Willams and Hans Zimmer.
Some of the drum rhythms at the end might even be influenced by what I heard my thirteen-year-old cousin listening to on his iPod at max volume when we were travelling to Brisbane.
Please leave a comment with your thoughts on the concerto.
