    Soliloquy for Clarinet No. 19

    Thanks punintentional for your review and your constructive suggestions. Thanks for the link to the video also, even though it was intended for orchestral scores. I had tried to minimize change of time signature. However, in response to your last point, I made the time signature changes that you suggested, keeping the first note on the downbeat. I uploaded a new score with the changes. However, since I could not detect any difference in the MP3 recording, I didn't change it.

    Soliloquy for Clarinet No. 19

    This is my "Soliloquy for Clarinet No. 19". Here is the link to my previous posted soliloquy for clarinet: https://www.youngcomposers.com/t34671/soliloquy-for-clarinet-no-18/
  3. Thanks Monarcheon and Willibald for your reviews and for your valuable feedback as well as criticisms.
  4. These are my Three Fugatos for Harpsichord, Op. 222, composed in August 2014. This is one of my older pieces. I first posted it here in August 2014. But it, together with a lot of posted pieces (both mine and others') got erased once the new version of the website was introduced sometime in late April - early May 2016. I had posted 181 pieces before then that all got deleted. Fortunately I have copies of everything posted. But it is the work of having posted so many pieces only to end up being deleted that I lament. This is the first of those 181 that I am posting again. I might also post others from those 181 pieces in the future. Below is the description of the pieces adapted from their first posting. These are my three fugatos for harpsichord. Before them I had only completed one piece for the harpsichord. I called the pieces 'fugato' since they do not follow all the 'rules' of a fugue, 'fugato' meaning "In the fugue style, but not in strict or complete fugue form" (Oxford Talking Dictionary, 1998).

    Max Reger Viola Suite No. 1 Max Reger Viola Suite No. 2 Max Reger Viola Suite No. 3 And if you are interested in compositions by YC members you can find at least some pieces posted here, including two of mine.

    Prelude No 2 in c minor

    I enjoyed listening to the piece. Personally, I didn't see the point of the half-notes since they are sounding like a rest. I don't know if a real harpsichord can sustain a note that long. I suppose it can. But if not, then I don't agree with the use of those half-notes. Overall, the piece is idiomatic of the harpsichord and the Baroque style. Maybe you could have made the ending a little longer and more impactful. Edit: I realize that the half-notes I am talking about are the arpeggios. So perhaps it's a software problem.
  7. Thanks Gustav Johnson, Ampnoe, and pateceramics for your reviews and criticisms. I appreciate them. Gustav Johnson, it is true I haven't been composing as frequently of late. Great to hear that you always enjoy hearing my work! pateceramics, actually if you look closely there are some subtle variations between the four other parts. But even then, there are times when the character of a piece would requires less counterpoint and/or harmony and a more monophonic texture. That is why I do not worry about the way every piece develops. The pieces have their character; and as a composer, I have my character (including strengths and limitations, inclinations). It is about negotiating between those two, about balancing the character of the given piece with the character of the composer. Art can never be entirely objective, if at all; therefore it should never be judged by objective standards. Thanks Ampnoe for your positive words and encouragement!
  8. These are my "Two Sententiae for String Orchestra, Op. 309". It is rarely that I compose for orchestra. The last composition, a "Concertino for Classical Guitar and String Orchestra", was composed back in late 2015. I had shared it here almost two years ago. Here is its link: https://www.youngcomposers.com/t33864/concertino-for-classical-guitar-and-string-orchestra/

    Soliloquy for Viola No. 7

    Back in October 2017, I composed this piece, my 7th soliloquy for solo viola, in response to Serj Tankian's "7 Notes Music Challenge" (Check here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZMJy7jO08Q). They have now chosen the best 500 from thousands of submissions worldwide and will soon choose the winner from the top 100. You can listen to the selected 500 and see the list of the top 100 in the following website: https://www.7notesexperiment.com/ I only listened to several of the many multi-instrumental and multi-genre compositions based on the 7-notes theme, but in my mind my continuation in the 3rd and 4th measures offers the most natural and logical one. Here is the link to my previous soliloquy for viola: https://www.youngcomposers.com/t34476/soliloquy-for-viola-no-6/

    Three Sententiae for Violin Op. 308

    Thanks aMusicComposer & Maarten Bauer for your reviews and appreciation!
  13. These are my "Three Sententiae for Violin, Op. 308". I have included a title page with an explanation of the sententiae, a form that I have originated in 2013. Here is the link to my previous set of sententiae for violin: https://www.youngcomposers.com/t36182/three-sententiae-for-violin-op-300/
  14. These are my "Three Sententiae for Violin, Op. 300". Opus 300 being a significant landmark to reach for any composer, I had hoped to mark the occasion with a special post and had offered the pieces to a violinist to perform and record them so that I could post that recording. However, due to various reasons, that hope hasn't materialized. So here is the MP3 of the computer version and the score. I hope you enjoy listening to them. And Happy New Year 2018 to everyone!
