unharmonic? : )

you mean atonal.
It reminds me a bit of Schnittke, also very polystylistic.

I like it!

 I like the music but the pedaling style is a bit overwhelming for me.   I would prefer to hear the piano part with a more articulated pedaling (probably a lot less) to give the passages more definition and contrast in color.

Joshua - I very much enjoyed your work, although I have to agree that some of the delicate piano passagework seemed overpedalled.  That may be your intention, but I would have enjoyed it more with less.  However, really great and powerful work - sincere congratulations.  Beautiful use of timbre as well.

Cyril - you are of course entitled to your point of view, as is your friend.  However, I'm confused whether your description "It is unharmonic" is a criticism - from the tone of your email it seems so.  However, I think the fact that there is no firm harmonic base is probably one of the most interesting things about the piece.  You may get more enjoyment from the piece if you extend your listening out through Debussy and Ravel to Shostakovich and particularly Prokofiev's piano works, and finally out to the really challenging twentieth-century composers.  There is a beauty to less traditional diatonic music, but to "get it" you need to listen to and enjoy it on its own terms, rather than thinking that it is nineteenth-century tonality gone wrong.

I agree with you that it is unharmonic.  It's just that I don't see it as a problem.

Kind Regards,

Nick.

Thanks for the impressive concert.

(I had a surprise performance the first time I played the second movement: In the first seconds of the second movement a real (not sampled) thunderstorm broke out here, a very special instrument, far more interesting than a cannon. I had to relisten to be sure it was not part of your piece; it could well be however)
