Portrait of a Girl, No 2 by joespiro published on 2012/05/01 11:07:13 +0000 This is the 2nd of 2 orchestral portraits I composed for/about my girlfriend. Some of my best orchestral writing. I was going for a cinematic post-Romantic era style, reminiscent of the film score love themes by composer John Williams (especially those from the score to Star Wars). Harmonically, this piece is also very interesting, and right on the breaking point of tonality at many points, even though it doesn't sound like it. Written in 2010. This is from my Harmonic Language album (track 10, disc 2).
