A pretty piece of music

New York composer Erik-Peter Mortensen has written a charming piece of music entitled Adagio for Two Souls. The score for harpsichord and strings is reminiscent of a ‘pas de deux’ piece. Well done!

Walking and Talking

This adagio is just what it states, two souls having a philosphical conversation as they are strolling along either a path in a public park or within a private garden. The first phrase is the troubling matter that the initiator feels is troubling him followed by a lofty response from his interlocutor offering some solace. Then the converstion becomes animated where the initiant tries wholeheartedly to explain his predicament, and the troubles he faces with regard to a moral stance. He is forceful here. The final passage seems to be that the second soul has found a release for his companion, but must explain that there is a certain loss to his pride, his honor, admitting that he has erred in some way morally, and has to face the consequences of his actions, this being said the conversation end with the matter unresolved. Thank you Erik for this masterful rendition.

The Display of Academic Precision

The composition "Adagio For two Souls" is a clear indication of a composers sophisticated personality. With charming, natural elegance, Erik-Perter Mortensen has created apparently a piece of music in its flawless, baroque, complete form. Even I thought so, when I first listen to that academic, rigid, composition written and performed apparently according to the strict rules of Georg Friedrich Händel's old-skool. But then I've heard his own personality behind thee curtain of arabesque picture. 'I've got ya, my mate' - the trick is in the strings! He's let the strings modify the harmonics of of the progression of the whole piece. The strings in its delicate colour are defiant to the strict convention and free of baroque subordinate role. It is the emanation of modernity like a modern, natural, freedom of relation between independent individuals; a correlation sparking the happiness. Well, I am impressed. Ah, ... and yes I've noticed the eloquent, brilliant very, very brief, chords '-7 -5 -3 jazz progressions playing a bit of a snooker on academic traditional traditionalists. I'm not giving 5 stars because the orchestra sounds a bit flat - lacking attack on low frequencies(a bit too much "knee" compression I guess). Well from masters we tend to demand more than the regular humans. )( D'Avencourt

Well tempered Adagio

Slow and enduring progression forging and welding so to speak the two souls together in a blending fresco of harmonies. The well tempered harpsichord seems to distil the beauty of this piece.I still hear softly, as from a distance, the magic strains of Mozart's music.
