  1. Hi all, I received some interesting feedback on my Melody for piano ''Winter''. One of the comments was by @Gustav Johnson. He encouraged me to compose a suite based on the seasons (Dutch: Seizoenen). The Suite is called Piano Suite ''Seizoenen.'' The Winter is the first movement and can be found here: http://www.youngcomposers.com/t34743/melody-for-piano-winter/#play.The Lente (Spring) is the second movement. I tried to imitate typical Spring elements, such as whistling birds and animals that wake up from hibernation. Feedback would be very nice! Kind regards, Maarten
  2. Symphonic Suite No. 1 is a collection of pieces I originally composed during my time at the University of Michigan. I was constantly told by my good friends and Sinfonian fraternity brothers, Jamal Duncan, Armand Hall, and Damien Crutcher, to write for symphonic band. I eventually drew upon my time at my alma mater to compose for this idiom, which gave me my love for playing, my love for classical music, and my desire to compose. Chorale and Prelude was the last piece composed for this suite. It was originally written as my final-exam project in my Baroque counterpoint class with Kevin Korsyn. It was easily made into a piece for saxophone choir. After realizing the suite was incomplete with the later three movements (Marziale, Hymn, and Gigue), I composed additional material (F major) in 2012 to prolong the piece and give it more color. Marziale comes from my tuba-euphonium quartet, Quartet No 1, which was composed for three friends of mine: Kristof Schneider, Tony Halloin, and Todd Shafer. It was inspired by the Hindemith Trombone Sonata, which I first heard performed in 1994 by my brother, Bradford Mallory. Hymn was originally written as “Jesus is Lord.” It was commissioned as a band piece by Frank Perez and Graceland University and premiered December 8, 2011. An alternate version with choir was premiered by Edward P. Quick and the Michigan State University New Horizons Band. Gigue also comes from my tuba-euphonium quartet. I loved Kristof’s sound on euphonium and was thoroughly impressed with Todd’s and Tony’s range on tuba. Their abilities inspired me to compose habitually. This piece was also inspired by the Violoncello Suites of Johann Sebastian Bach and Second Suite in F: Fantasia on a Dargason by Gustav Holst.
  3. Here is my suite in nine-parts about Dante's Inferno and the circles of Hell he describes. I rewrote the entire suite, as I had previously written in only six days. Much of the suite is different, and this time I included a brief introduction about every piece and the suite as a whole to give you, the listener a better idea of what is going on. Let me know what you think!
  4. A suite made up of sketches 58, 62, and 78. I like this better than the first, personally, since I actually studied this type of music before these sketches, instead of mindlessly writing what I thought this type of music was. Enjoy!
  5. OK, this Suite has many more pieces, but to show what can be done with exotic scales (and much more if they were in the hands of an expert) this three (short) are enough. Jewish scale, Romanian scale, Harmonic-Ionian and Harmonic-Eolian scales, "Bizantina" scale, Lydian-eolian scale and Locrian (yes, it is present in our folk music). Some of them will semm odd to you. All are here:
  6. So instead of posting multiple threads, I just compiled them in a series.... More will be uploaded later...
  7. Some time ago, I wrote music (piano solo) for the silent movie The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, synchronizing music and image and, by the way translating the titles into Spanish. After that, I extracted two suites. This is the first. From m. 140 to m. 153 you will notice a quotation (harmonized in a peculiar way) of a song by The Beatles from Sgt. Peppers: For the Benefit of Mr. K... It corresponds to the scene of the fair in the movie. Of course it is very different to listen and to wath it.
  8. A short, tense Bagatelle in D Minor for String Orchestra (+ Triangle), the second movement of a Suite still in progress. The form is roughly A-B-A, with the A parts in Agitato cut time, D Minor, and the dreamy B part Assai Meno, written on the contrast between mute sustains and pizzicati/short sforzandos. Apart of some notational distractions (I forgot the 8vb in the Violas, last bars and to write divisi in a couple of Vl.I passages, let me know If you note some scoring errors (I'm not a string player). Audio and score: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0E-f7GmxXE
  9. So this uploaded this piece a couple of months ago (original in the archives). I have added an another movement, and I think I can say now that this work is pretty complete (barring some minor revisions). Impromptus are collection of short orchestral pieces that I have written (on a whim basically) in the past year and a half. They consist of short movements each with a unique mood and form. The 3rd movement (the Berceuse) was inspired by a theme by Christian Perrotta (I'll link his original theme below). The instrumentation is fairly the same throughout the whole piece. Let me know what you guys think, and thanks for listening/commenting! Christian's theme: http://www.youngcomposers.com/music/listen/7827/Tema (Challenge No. 4)
  10. I attached the final two movements as just MP3's, as I have yet to upload them to YouTube. This is my most extended piece of music, which was completely over the period of about 6 days. It consists of nine movements for orchestra based around Dante's Inferno, a description of Hell. The score may need some revision, but the work as a whole is ~160 pages, so minor revisions are to be put off. Enjoy, and check out my YouTube channel for a more in-depth description of some of the individual pieces.
  11. This is a set of preludes I composed and recorded for the piano, and the set tells the narrative of a maritime journey, detailing the calm sea, the time spent on the ship, the lighthouse on land, the seabirds, and finally the port. I made these pieces the bulk of my newest album, and it can be found here. Thanks, and let me know what you think.
  12. This is a suite made of some new and not-so-new material. The name "Lake Suite" (Suíte Lacustre) comes from the surname of my friend Deborah Lago (lago = lake, in Portuguese), to whom this suite is dedicated. The movements are: 1 - Prelude 2 - Cantabile 3 - Elegy 4 - Ricercare 5 - Interlude 6 - Toccata
