  1. Who are now considered very good living composer of the fugal form by the professional composer community? Can some fugues you can refer me to which are written in the past few decades and is now part of the standard reportoire.
  2. How much is it possible to determine what is your next composing piece is going to be like before you put down your first note?Form,tonality,mode is not considered as very much deterministic of a musical composition. In other words how much do you plan about your composition?If you are asked that tell something about one of the piece you wrote what and how much can you say? Do you have the ability to look at a written melody and say whether it is good or bad without hearing it?If you do then how do you do that? Given a melody which is bad,can you shape the melody to your liking without hearing it? Does the above abilities and awareness is essential for a good composer.By good I mean who can express his personal thoughts and feelings adequately enough for others to understand.
  3. Why not formalize a theory using mathematics and cognitive science and music theory?Then we test it.If the theory pass almost all the test then and only then we can have solid understanding about the matter.
  4. Recently I have noticed that if some notes of a music are deleted still the music sounds quite reasonable.Especially deleting the weak beats of a music doesn't make the music unrecognizable.Why does this happen?
  5. Is Bach predictable too?I'm asking out of curiosity since I don't have any musical training at all.
  6. Fame is not necessary in my honest opinion.It oftentimes works as a distraction.I wonder how many of us have heard the name of Professor Higgs before the recent outburst in the media about the higgs boson which is still not confirmed to exist.I myself didn't. The point is public almost totally depends on common media today to know about something.As per what media tells them most of the people only know that much.It destroys their will to self learn.Academic education also contribute to this fact.And it is certainly not in the profit book of media to publicize music composers. Another fact that classical music didn't have a most extraordinary composer in the past few deacades who is on the level of Beethoven,Bach,Mozart,Chopin and handful of other composers.So even people who know about the famed classical composers they think that classical music is dead by now.Not all of them but some of them think in this way.Why listen to atonal music when you have mozart around?
  7. There is book called classical forms by William E. Caplin which describes -with examples- how different part of sonatas function and especially deals with different types of phrases.I found it very helpful.I think you'll too
  8. I'm totally stuck with my symphony help please

  9. Can somebody give me a some specific information about the 4th movement of mozart's symphony 36 4 th movement regarding it's style,elements of contrast and causes of their use and their effect.It would be best if you can refer to a site.Thanks.
  10. I know about period being a special kind of musical phrase.Does their exist anymore classified types of phrase in music?Also if they do what is the basic principals to write such phrases in a tonality? How does rhythmic symmetry works in musical phrases and harmonic balance too.It will be very helpful if someone can answer them in detail.Thanks.
  11. A very important issue for any composer is to know when he/she will be satisfied with his work.Because it determines how his piece will finally sound.Every composer have their own compositional method.But I think reworking is a essential part of everybody's method.As such I have some question regarding this issue. 1.Does reworking your ideas have any major effect on your composition or is it just some minor corrections? 2.From my personal experience changing things after composing often make the piece more finer.And this makes the whole piece more accessible.What usually happens with you? 3.Also if you know about the compositional method of some renowned composer then you know that they revised their work many times.Does it have something to do with the success of their composition? 4.What actually is your target when you do revise your piece? Forgive my English for it's not my first language.
  12. How do we download these songs from Yc.There seems to be no way at all
  13. There are some good lectures by andreas schiff on beethoven sonatas.They are in wikipedia.Go to the appassionata page of wikipedia and you will see them in the bottom of the page.
