  1. I will admit my only studying of Copland was listening to Appalachian Spring. I am definitely gonna rewrite the beginning 2 sections to have more depth. I wrote this work in 2 chunks with the first 3 sections (Everything before the violin solo) across a couple of days almost 2 full years before the remainder of the piece was written during a similar period. I hope that gap shows in a difference in maturity of composition between the 2 halves of the piece. Thank you all for the input though, I am very much an amateur at this.
  2. First post here, this is an orchestra work I did a while back as an ode to Virginia (My home state) it takes you through various regions of the state such as the Tidewater, the Appalachians, the Blue Ridge, and the Shenandoah valley. I was inspired to write this when hearing the intro for Appalachian Spring by Copland. I remember our teacher saying it was meant to capture a morning in the Appalachian Mountains (where my family is from), and thinking to myself that Copland nailed it, but I wanted a piece that would do the same for the whole of Virignia (Or at least parts of it). I sought to emulate this in the beginning of the piece. The piece concludes with my take on Oh, Shenandoah. A river that rolls through Virginia which I spent many summers on. Let me know what you think, and yes I know the score is horribly engraved.
  3. First post here so here goes nothing. This work is part of an ongoing project I have entitled "The Cosmos Suite". The project is meant to capture specific aspects of space, primarily seeking to answer the question "What does space sound like?" In this instance, the work seeks to capture the serene beauty as one drifts amongst the star throughout our universe and witnesses the natural beauty of it. The strings provide the backdrop of space and the stars while the horn and trumpet call to each from across the void. The work is scored for solo horn, solo Tpt, and chamber strings.
