  1. maybe, or maybe not, i would say. not sure about your piece specifically. i have never studied music in a university - well, I took some sort of music appreciation class once to fulfill an elective requirement, choosing one in music so that I could fulfill that elective buy studying MUSIC instead of something else, quite the good show by my college for allowing that, some classmates once asking me to take it easy on a test that was to be graded on a curve in view of the fact that I knew more - but not so much more - than the jazzes and pop music aficionados in that class happened to know.

  3. Hi Samuel, MP3 player now working... (?!) As always, I enjoyed your piece 🙂 My only critic is that it's somewhat flat on the long term, lacking some variations... until the last 2 minutes which are awesome ! 🙂 Regards

  4. Here is a small set of three pieces inspired by different figures in Seneca mythology/folklore! I hope to improve my harp writing, so any tips/advice on that would be greatly welcomed. The colors were used as a reference for myself while composing (I think of music in terms of color), and they themselves allude to the "triptych" I was attempting to create. (The score is left in concert pitch)

  5. This piece was written in Prague for a friend I made there; it is in five brief movements and the inspiration is from medieval Occitan literature. The organization of the movements depicts a "legend," or some sort of story which one recounts to another, beginning in the morning and ending in the evening. The first movement is an alba ("sunrise"), which is similar to an aubade -- a morning love poem --and the piece serves as an introduction to the set. The second movement is more lively and is a poem celebrating the arrival of spring. The third movement is pensive and re

  6. I present another sonata, this time for oboe (English horn) and piano. While I have included a program which outlines my thought-process, I find it important to include that this work is one that is important in defining my individual style and voice. It is energetic and narrative, and it progresses in such a manner which it highlights the leader of the duo -- the oboe. Enjoy!

  7. Hey, guys! I just finished work on the first movement of a new sonata, this time for oboe and piano; it was a quick two days. I was first planning a piano sonata, but I shifted my mind over to a duet like this instead, a form in which I enjoy writing the most. The sonata, I plan, will have three movements, and this is only the first. It has several main key areas/significant harmonies, and all of them are in mm. 30- 31. This is a piece with a story-without-words, with many motifs depicting the motions and movements of the eponymous frogs and of flowing and dripping water. While much

  8. This is an application of the "Ter sanctus," (thrice holy) often used in the Eastern Orthodox Church; it is also known as the "trisagion." I'm thinking of working out some more sacred motets in the near future. The piece itself is rather simple harmonically and texturally speaking, and this is intentional; I prefer it this way. These pieces could certainly be more complex and thorough, but I enjoy writing small, simple pieces with a sacred text. Anyway, I'd still love some feedback with all that said!
