  1. Hi Jared, Thanks a lot for your feedback and to take some time to hear it!
  2. Hi, here goes a short Choral piece for Brass, Organ and Strings big essemble. I added some reverbs to create a big place atmosphere, like a church. I appreciate your comments.
  3. Wow, it's really nice...Just the Kind of music I love. I can hear a lot of appogiatura on the dominant and tonic chord at the end of the phrases, some diminished seventh chords and variations on the main theme very typical from the Clasicism. If you have the score I'd like to have a look at it. It reminds me a lot a movement of a piano sonata by Haydn, Well done!
  4. Thanks a lot for your comments! I agree with you, I love Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven and there is a more than obvius influence of them in there. But I know I have still a lot to learn and probably finding my own style.
  5. Very nice @Monarcheon! Harmony and Rythm reminds me of Ravel's piano Works.
  6. Thanks a lot for your comments @KJthesleepdeprived! I often retake old works and try it with new sound library, with a different arrangement or with new subordinate ideas...Experimenting makes fun and when interesting results come up its even better. Hi @pianowillbebach, it's nice to see the images that come up by hearing my music. Thanks to share it!
  7. Hi TSTwizby, That's a very interesting question. A question every composer have to face...When I started composing about 15 years ago, most of my compositions where very short (meaning 1 minute or shorter). But with time and practice I learnt who the develop music ideas and give more solid structure to my pieces. Music Analysis, although it's sometimes though can help a lot of being self conscious of how it works. The first idea of the Bagatelle I have already posted was A (bars 4-5) and then A' which is a varition of A with the same Alberti bass. Then in bar 8 I introduced the new idea (B), with an ascending octave scale. From the idea A I grabbed the silence and the three eight notes, which are underlined on the screenshot and then Idea B, which can be seen all throught the 90 mesures. If you reduce that to the essential, all the piece is about the three eight notes on the weak beat and the ascending octave in sixteenth notes. It's not a long piece at all (just 3:10 min), but I mean that just two very short music ideas consisting a few notes can give you all the raw material that you need. Bagatelle in FM It was just an exemple about how I think it works for a short composition lets say between 2 and 4 minutes. What I find difficult is to develop large scale structure, with unity and variety. For example Beethoven's fifth Symphony have the main music idea in all four movements, and so is how he achieves unity. It would be great, if someone can share his/her own experience of how to create and develop a large scale structure. Going back to your question, how long should be a piece is a very difficult answer, but I think it depends on the raw material you have (music ideas) and the formal structure you want to fit in. You can how an exemple of what you mean to be too short and let people give the own opinion. PD: I don't want to seem pretentious by analysing my own music. I just wanted to share a few things about music analysis and I firmly invite other people to share the own piece analysis within this fórum.
  8. Here is my first Classic Bagatelle for piano with an A-B-A' structure. I appreciate your comments.
  9. wow, such a lovely fuge. Brilliant! It transports me to the English courts by the time of Henry Purcell or Frederick Haendel...I love this kind of music and as a composer I find the fugue to be probably the most difficult achivement in music. Just one observation: the last chord have a very open disposition and I see a enormeus gap between the second Trumpet and the first Trombone of 2 octaves + a major 6. When I do 4 voice writing I try to keep in mind the distance between intermediate voices to be an octave or smaller. Of course you find usually high distances by the great masters, and in fugue composition the parts have more freedom, but I feel your final chord is somehow inestedy, because of that enormeus gap. Have you considered placing the final trombone note (G) an octave higher? Maybe I'm wrong, since I never had a solid study in composition, so I'm curious to know what other composers' opinion about that...
  10. Here my new duet for Cello and Piano. I wrote the piano part about 10 years ago. A few day ago I listen to the draft again I decided to finish it adding a solo cello, which I think fits pretty well. I'm looking forward to your comments!
  11. I reminds me the soundtrack of an epic movie. I love the main theme played by Frensh horn at the begining and then by the cello, which actually are my two favourite instruments. Well done Samuel!
  12. I love it! the feeling of threat and restless I all through the piece, full of dissonances and then the great explosions of rage...it's captivating. You created a great atmosphere here, congratulations!
  13. Nice solo Silver, thanks! Me favorite solo violin is the well known from Mendelssohn's violin concerto in E minor...
  14. nice work CalibriStandard! the melody is very fluid and though it's quite simple you make some rythm changes here and there, that make it work. I also agree that it needs some more development on the form. One option you could do a binary form. The 12 bars you wrote could be part A. Then you need a part B, which could be done keeping the same rythmic patterns, but starting with EMajor, which is the relative of C#minor. Let's say 8 mesures in EMajor and then you can link it with the last 4 mesures of part A to finish in Cminor. You can even repeat A and B twice (Ax2 + Bx2). Of course, there are plenty of other solutions by developing the material, modulating to some other key or adding new ideas...I just gave you an easy solution without much pretensions, which I think I could perferctly work. And one more point: I would leave a silence on the left hand on the third beat of bar 8, since only the last note (C) belongs to the harmony and I see it more like a anacrusic preparation for next strong beat returning to the starting theme. I feel with this silence bar 9 have more power. I hope it helps ;)
  15. Hi Ken320 and Tónskáld, I really appreciate your comments! @Tónskáld: you are totally right, I have changed the pedal markings beneath the lower piano staff. @Ken320: I think is better to stop the rhythm at the end of the phrase, since the phrase have an anacrusic start out of the harmony and without accompaniment, I think it gives a renewing impulse and the start is clearer. I have also tried to hold the D from bar 54 two more bars, as you suggested, but I don't find it convincing at all. I think it's more interesting to leave one bar just with the accompaniment. The idea of overlaping violin and clarinet is interesting, and it happends in the final coda (bars 96-108).
  16. Thanks for your comments Ruthie!
  17. Hi, Here is a short and lyrical piece for Violin, Clarinet and Piano. My first idea was a song for Sopran and Alto, but I choose violin and clarinet instead, that's why the range of both instruments are in the sopran and alto resister. I'm looking forward to your feedback.
  18. Wow, I love it! I think music material and ideas are very good organized. I like the rhytm changes and the reflexiv character. In some way it reminds me the music of an anime japanese movie. Congratulations!!! by the way, what VST library are your using? Piano sounds great!
  19. Thanks Marc!, I'm glad you enjoyed it. All sound are from Vienna Instruments (Special Edition Vol.1). Woodwinds of that collection sound indeed very good. Regards!
  20. Hi Mariusg, I think your are right, B section sounds more like 6/8...I'll correct it. Thanks for your comments
  21. Welcome Mariusg, I really like the piece. It sounds very natural and delighful 😉
  22. Here goes my new Prelude for orchestra in a A-B-A form. A section: DM (from bar 1) is in Adagio tempo, which remains me the movement on the waves by the shore in a calm sunny day. B section: Bm (froma bar 33) has a Valse tempo and is much more active. Can someone please tell my, if the notation is right? in the A section the beat is to the fourth notes to 68bpm, but in the B section the beat is to the eight notes, so twice as fast. Is it right like it is written or should I indicate tempo 136, instead of 68 on the B section and re-writting that part accordingly?
  23. Hi Stewboy, nice piece of music! I remarc the wide range of wind instruments you used, that makes it sound very ritght in timbre. I specially like the begin and the end of the 3rd movement, it sounds fresh, with nice rithom...I also like the use of percussion. Well done!
