Dear composers, Many, many years ago, since the 2000's, i joined this site. Just last week, reminiscing, I checked to see if my password still worked. It has. I am absolutely impressed that, considering how many old websites--I'm thinking Geocities and the old about.com MIDI composers exchange--have gone the way of the dinosaurs, this community is continuing to flourish. When I joined, I was just a naive kid who wanted to make friends and share some music. Now, I'm a teacher with over seven years of university time behind me, a marriage of four years. I have no idea if the old guard remembers me, since I'm talking so long ago. As life would have it, there are many things one faces that can turn attention away from art. Illness, personal and financial struggles, and so many other things. When we are young, we often forget just how lucky we are to grow and experiment and focus our attention on just creating and having fun. Over the last year, entering my thirties, I had the game changing opportunity and privilege to be able to finance two concerts and an album release of original classical music. I had never had the opportunity to work with musicians of such calibre, ever. Prior to this, it's been years since I've had a considerable amount of my music performed or shared. I was very sad. For your consideration, I'd like to reintroduce myself to this community. Hi, I'm Ben. For your listening pleasure, available on ITunes, Spotify, and Bandcamp, I would like to share with you, dear readers, the result of five years of on-again off-again labours of love, now that I've turned 32 today: "The Great War Sextet: Canadian War Poetry with Trombone & Strings." https://greatwarsextet.hearnow.com/

ComposerMITA posted a topic in Orchestral and Large EnsembleHello everyone! I'm Norbert from Hungary and want to share one of my pieces with you i've written 5 years ago. I included a little backstory for this piece about how i made a little "Fiverr Orchestra" to play my piece which i mixed in with Note Performer 3's samples. Please read it before making any comment, because context matters! Thanks for listening! Enjoy! : ) (I also included the original midi files, along with the recorded live files and also of course the final mix with score. Also i'm not promoting Fiverr in any way as i stated in the pdf, i just wanted to give credits to the musicians involved, because they deserve it!) Here's the link for the midi version: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1CaRCS_8gdb49YOsqAAbKMmhM5eFNbEUC
12 Preludes for Solo Piano, Opus 17
pianist_1981 posted a topic in Piano Music, Solo KeyboardHello fellow composers, I was recently afforded the opportunity to perform a recital of my own works and decided afterwards to record a couple of them in a home setting. This is a collection of relatively brief solo piano preludes. It's a rather unusual work for me, as I generally tend towards longer, more developed chamber music. These are more like independent, fleeting ideas. This collection moves chromatically from C through B, alternating between major and minor. The musical style would be right at home in the 19th century, which is the period of music that I most appreciate. My personal musical preferences definitely lie with the conservative branch of that period, and my writing reflects that. Unfortunately, I am not comfortable sharing the score. It's not that I don't trust the established members of this community, but rather that I don't trust making my scores available to anyone in the world at a time when the work has not been performed far enough afield to prove beyond a doubt that it is my work. After having a colleague be forced to go to court to deal with a music thief, I am not willing to endure the stress and expense of doing it as well. My apologies to those who would have liked to see it. If only we lived in a world where everyone was honest.
Piano Trio in A-flat Major, Opus 18
pianist_1981 posted a topic in Chamber MusicHi all, So, I've been away from this site for a few years - long enough that I find it has changed and my profile is completely empty! It's time to change that. In February, I had the opportunity to perform a recital of my own works, this trio among them. My colleagues and I decided afterwards that it would be worth the trouble to do a house recording of it. This is the result. My personal musical preferences lie squarely in the conservative German branch of the 19th century, and I've always believed that a composer should write the sort of music he or she likes to hear. That's what you can expect from this trio with respect to form, harmony, rhythm, and so forth. It's in four movements. The first movement is a traditional sonata-allegro with slow introduction. The second movement is a scherzo and trio. The third is a theme and variations, based on a melody I wrote when I was 13 or 14 (side note - NEVER throw away the ideas you compose when you're young!) The fourth movement is rondo-like arch form. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed performing it! I have decided against posting the score. I hate to have to take this stance, but as an essentially unknown composer, I am deeply reluctant to post my scores to an internet site that is open to the world when I know colleagues who have been victimized by thieves stealing their works and claiming them as their own. Even with a legally copyrighted work, it is stressful, time-consuming, and expensive to take these people to court. I apologize to those who would have liked to see it.
Hello. Posting some old works that was performed some years ago. Concerto nr. 36 in the late Italian baroque style, written to my better half! Sadly I lost the recording from the concert, so this recording is from a rehearsal. For me this second movement of this concerto is the most expressive slow movement I have written. I. Allegro II. Adagio III. Vivace (La danza dell'amore) Please tell me what you think! Performed by new baroque ensemble 2016.
pateceramics posted a topic in Choral, VocalA choir in NH was nice enough to send me the recording of their concert so I could make a new demo video for my piece. Enjoy! -Maggie
