  1. This is the first movement of my third symphony, scored for orchestra. I'll upload the other movements when I have finished putting them on Musescore (they are on manuscript just now.) I hope you enjoy it.
  2. Guten Tag! This is one of the projects I have been working on this semester! Feel free to check out the concept behind it at this blog post: Composition Notebook: "Morning Birds" - the story. What I am attaching for ya'll is the full score (which includes the cues for the three different flute parts, but not the actual parts), one of the flute parts (so you can see what they look like), a MIDI rendering of all the orchestra and flute parts combined, and a MIDI rendering of just the orchestra part (Titled "Three Violin Version..."). One of the flaws of the combined MIDI file is that the flute parts are made up of several short fragments/'bird calls',as you will see in the attached flute part, and the players will be improvising which bird call they play when. In other words, it will be a much more organic process than a computer just playing them all in order, as happens in the recording. I think the MP3 of everything combined sounds pretty terrible and clamorous which is not at all the intent of the piece. I suspect that this chaos will be lessened considerably when real players are performing this. If anyone has experience writing this sort of thing, I would really appreciate any advice you'd have to offer. Also, I am happy to hear comments from anyone about this piece, whether they be about the orchestral writing, the special effects, or anything else. Thank you and enjoy!
  3. Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum but i'm hoping i can get some much needed help. I recently started working on my very first musical composition and it has multiple sections. The "B" section is a Waltz that preferably needs to be in E Minor. I've never written a Waltz or Classical music in general. so it would be much appreciated if i could have some ideas on how to take it. Thanks, Weston
  4. This is a piano Concertino that was premiered in December by a Chamber Orchestra composed by young artists. I couldn't record the event but I have a midi rendition. Any feedback is welcomed!!!
  5. Hello guys, this is one of my latest compositions. The purpose of this piece is to be a soundtrack of the menu for a video game but I decided to include all the melodies and motiffs that will appear later and therefore decided to call it an overture. Any feedback is welcomed! I have in my mind to keep developing the piece later and make a more established Symphonic poem. (The harp part might be impossible, I wrote with the intention of fixing it later, any teaching is appreciated)
  6. It's my first upload in here. Please advice for improvements, non professional composer here
  7. Note: This is a hypothetical situation: Say I was writing an orchestral piece, and I was planning to give it to my local orchestra. I know that the 1st clarinettist is brilliant, so I write an extended solo which I maybe wouldn't have done otherwise. What do you think about writing music for a specific orchestra, who will hopefully be able to play it well? When doing it, do you think about the players themselves and their standard? Or do you just compose for orchestra/ensemble without having anyone in mind?
  8. After writing several small pop/easy listening style pieces, I have decided to go for it and write a larger work: an opera. I have the story down and I even named some of the characters after composers I really admire. I decided to outline the story and journal about my characters before doing anything else. Now I am going to move along and start writing the libretto. The biggest obstacle for me is writing for orchestra. I am a pianist and I can write for piano, voice and a solo instrument like one violin or one flute. But a full orchestra? I have zero experience in that. Maybe if I write a piano part and then transcribe it to various orchestra parts that will make my life easier. I also want to know the little nuances like the difference between writing for C Trumpet vs. B Flat Trumpet? Any recommendations on how to learn about this? My community college does not offer an orchestra writing class.
  9. Hey folks, This is my latest composition, Ruth. It will be performed by my church's orchestra sometime in the Spring or Summer. I am looking for feedback on this so hit me with anything you've got! I know each section is pretty short, but it's what I had to do in order to fit the type of concert it will be performed at. Thanks! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-c3YJdnU_Lg
  10. New release by Sinfonia Varsovia. http://www.sinfoniavarsovia.org/en/-a-warsaw-polonaise-for-an-independent-poland-announcing-the-res.html
  11. Hey guys, sorry for not posting recently. I've just moved to start going to school for organ performance, but I've been getting back into composing over the past weeks. Here's a project I've started and finished during that time.
  12. Hello, This is my first post on this website. I am a radiologist doctor in Thailand who really loves composing music. This song was originally written as slow ballad music sung in Thai language. Later I made this arranged version. I record this on Sonar. Love to hear your comment. PS. You can also check other works I compose on this soundcloud account! https://soundcloud.com/charat-chukiat/i-cant-forget-you
  13. Hi everyone! This is my first vocal/choral work to post here so far (If I don´t count a jazz song with my vocals which I´ve posted in the jazz section before). I wrote this one for strings, piano and soprano, for a talented Croatian singer Hana Huljić who also happens to be a great composer aswell. However, this is still a demo and the singer on this demo did not have any experiences with singing opera before and she is not a soprano, so it was a bit high for her, but I still love her performance very much. She´s a friend of mine and was very willing to sing the demo for Hana, I´m very thankful to her. I always loved Ave Maria songs, especially the Schubert one, and I always wanted to write one myself one day, and the day has come. Since there are so many Ave Maria already, I decided to write it for "Zdravas Mária" which is the Slovak equvivalent of the prayer. Please let me know how you like it!
  14. Work in progress! Well... so this year is my graduation recital and I wanted to finish with something "big" (Yeah, some weirdly restriction that limits the amount of musicians we can have on the recital) Scored for a chamber Orchestra. Every comment is helpful! 1 Flute 1 Oboe 1 Clarinet 1 Bassoon 2 Horns Strings
  15. Hello. I have question about solo bass singer. How low can a bass sing and yet be able to maintain a full resonating Fortissimo? For example, could it have the same Fortissimo low D (D2) as a Bassoon playing it in low D? Thank you.
  16. Act III Intro-Recitativ-Aria.mid Here the beginning of the third act of an opera that I never finished. Enjoy it!
  17. This is my first time I am composing a piece for so many instruments so any feedback would be very helpful. I hope you will like it. P.S: This score is the third part of my series of scores called The Legend of Nabhi. You can also listen to the first two parts if you want.
  18. This is my submission for the Summer Competition. Please read the Program Notes for further explanation. As usual, comments and feedback is absolutely welcome! Thanks in advance...
  19. For the last few months I have been researching symphony orchestras and how they function. Im in part two of my research I would like to hear from you on specifically your experience in attending concerts. I want to know how you feel when you go to the symphony. How often do you attend the symphony or any classical music events? If not, why not? Do you buy tickets there or buy season tickets if available? Do you buy discounted tickets, student rush tickets, or get tickets for free from friends or family typically? How do you dress to go to said concert, why? If you answered no to the first question: how do you feel you would need to dress to the symphony? Do you park your own car or use the velvet if available? Do you buy drinks or food while at the symphony? If so what and if not why? Are food and drink even provided like a cash bar or reception? Are preconcert dinners provided and do you go to them? Do you feel that you need to maintain a certain level of concert etiquette during the concert? AKA no clapping between movements, no talking, sounding educated about the music, etc... What attitude do you feel the people around you have? Are the friendly, smug, indifferent, etc... Anything else you want to add?
  20. 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/
  21. Here is a piece for orchestra that I have been writing lately.
  22. This here particular piece is one that has been in development for around 7 months now. Initially the goal was to have it sound solemn, however this expanded to a quick uplift from what it once was. The backstory was slightly odd to say the least, and at the times I was writing, I didn't even realize I was changing the mood of the song. So, now I'm looking for feedback, name suggestions, etc. What can I do to improve this song, what do you all think as of yet, seeing that its not even half complete and what would be an appropriate title for it? I'm bad with titles.
  23. 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.
