  1. This is my Soliloquy for Bass Trombone No. 1, my first piece ever composed for Bass Trombone or for any trombone. I hope that you enjoy listening to it. I would hope to hear feedback from a bass trombonist and hopefully have someone play it one day.

    Soliloquy for Clarinet No. 5

    Thanks Gustav Johnson for your review and feedback! Glad to know you love the piece. Nice to hear your expectations and interesting feedback. It's interesting that you were reminded of Bach! Of course, Bach, as one of the greatest composers ever, is always and inevitably an influence and an ideal in composition to learn from and aspire to, while of course creating and maintaining one's own originality as a composer. I think as composers we seek to communicate with - not imitate - other composers. It is that desire to communicate - to give one's own compositional response to all the great composers/compositions one hears and appreciates - that was/is in fact one of my main motivators as a composer.

    Soliloquy for Clarinet No. 5

    This is the third installment of my pieces that were previously published here on Young Composers forum but got deleted during the renovation of the website in late April - early May 2016 and that I am choosing to publish again. Those pieces number 181 and I will try to post some of the best of them from time to time. What distinguishes this soliloquy is that, after I posted it, I was asked by a member of YC to choose one of my pieces for members of YC to compose pieces based on its theme. And I chose this piece since it was - and probably still is - one of my most original pieces. This is how I introduced my Soliloquy for Clarinet No. 5 when I posted it the first time back in October 5, 2013: "This is my 5th soliloquy for clarinet. I think it is the best clarinet soliloquy I have composed till now. And I consider it among my best compositions."

    Soliloquy for Harp No. 5

    This is my 5th soliloquy for harp. I had previously posted my 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, but they all got erased due to the renovation of the website in early May 2016. I might post one or more of them in the future as part of my repostings of older, deleted pieces. Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy this one.

    Soliloquy for Accordion No. 2

    This is my "Soliloquy for Accordion No. 2". It is, as its subtitle declares "In Memory of a Martyr for Freedom of Expression in the Arab World: Jamal Khashoggi". I am sure you have heard about the disappearance and death of the journalist all over the news for the past 20 days or so. It has preoccupied the news media of late. And increasingly it has appeared that he was brutally killed. His last article in the Washington post had an apt title: "What the Arab world needs most is free expression" (I provide the link below for those interested in reading it). As such - and as a citizen of the same "Arab world" that Khashoggi comes from, this is perhaps my first piece which can be described as a kind of "musical commentary" on current events. May his soul rest in peace. And may the Arab world - and the world at large - come to enjoy the free expression that he dreamed of. As such, this piece can also be considered as a step in the path or process of championing the right to freedom of expression and achieving the end of all oppression. Link to Jamal Khashoggi's last article: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/global-opinions/jamal-khashoggi-what-the-arab-world-needs-most-is-free-expression/2018/10/17/adfc8c44-d21d-11e8-8c22-fa2ef74bd6d6_story.html?utm_term=.de0ae3ff2d95 Link to my "Soliloquy for Accordion No. 1": https://www.youngcomposers.com/t34266/soliloquy-for-accordion-no-1/
  7. This is my "Two Sententiae for Piano, Op. 315". It is one of those sets of sententiae that are composed of only two sententiae. Sometimes a third or further sententiae are simply not within my inspiration. And I believe that those twin-sententiae-sets are perhaps the more powerful, pure, and "precious" for their "rarity" or scarcity. Here is the link to my previous set of sententiae for piano, posted on August 8, 2018: https://www.youngcomposers.com/t36881/three-sententiae-for-piano-op-312/
