Cello Suite on YouTubeRead Now
During the last of the 2015 Winter months I began writing a cello composition for a good friend of mine. In the remainder of the year as Summer brought hot sunlight to scorch the Canterbury Plains, I returned to the idea of completing a full suite for cello and started composing more ideas. The work was finished around Oct/Nov and uploaded in separate movements to Musescore online. Just recently I discovered that (with the pro account) you can send the score to YouTube. Spending most of the night trying to join five scores into one, and then getting all movements to work correctly, I finally was satisfied enough to send it to YouTube and am relatively happy with the result.
"Satisfied enough" I say. . . Unfortunately, Musescore has trouble recognising certain commands, as in, the programmers haven't figured out a solution to Musescore not playing repeats a second time through (Guitar Pro 6 has no problem doing it!), so what you hear in movement V when nothing is being repeated, including the first time bars, is obviously incorrect - the indication is "D.C. w/ repeats". There is also the final bar of movement IV that is meant to be played without pause as it leads directly into movement V ("attacca"), which is possible to do, but it removes 'the beginning' of the next movement, therefore the programming thinks it is still the same piece of music and any repeats in movement V will take the player back to movements IV.
Some updates to keep me updated.
