  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  7. 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/
  8. 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!
