  1. A sonata for flute a wrote about a year and a half ago. I still consider it pretty good which is rare for me and my "hating pieces I've written" track record. Hopefully y'all agree!
  2. These are some pieces based on natural things that I see or imagine.
  3. Another piece written for nothing in particular, the mixing is not up to scratch as usual, however, feedback welcome as always.
  4. Hey everyone! Here's another one of my instrumental pieces, this time it's a solo guitar instrumental. I composed it when I was 18 and I re-recorded the piece 1 year ago for my solo EP album. I performed it by myself. I intend to make another version with some additional instruments to it sometime in the future, but I guess it's also good just for a solo instrument. Let me know how you like it please!
  5. I have been working on my A-level music composition on my own, as the teaching at my school for music is virtually non-existent and would much appreciate some feedback on my composition so that I can improve on my work. It is not finished yet, but I will upload it when I have fully completed it. Many thanks. Piano Sonata in D minor Score.pdf
  6. This EP is an example of theoretical improvisation in the 12 keys off of a simple melodic, harmonic, or rhythmic idea. The key of C is played twice. Here's a link to the EP:
  7. I wrote this piece for the project of flutist Robin Meiksins, Where she play one piece a day for a year. I hope you enjoy it!!
  8. Piece: http://picosong.com/pYjG/ Sheet music thus far: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-WkFk0zutrdZVVtM19CaVExcmM This is a composition I am working for school and the piece is inspired by japanese, jazz and other modern piano solo music. I am in the process of writing it and would love an opinion and perhaps a few tips or pointers as to how it is going so far and potential developments later on. I am able to play it on the piano but it will require practice of sorts XD Hope you enjoy!
  9. So, as a pianist, and now also a recordist, I can't avoid comparing the amout of repertoire written for solo piano and solo recorder, the former is quite enormous, the latter is very scarce. So, I've decided to create this little challenge and encourage you guys to write something for solo alto recorder. Yay! As a prize, I will record the piece and post it here (the quality of the recording is similar to my Autumn Competition Entry "Variações sobre o Siriá"). I may also pick the piece to perform live in some performances I MAY have during my master's degree here (please, notice, I MAY have, it's not a promise). I don't have many guidelines for the entries. If you feel like you could do something, try. It'll be very welcome. I may even chose more than one piece. I've also attached some advice on writting for solo alto recorder. If you have any other doubt, feel free to ask here, and I'll answer. I'll set a deadline for January 9th.

  10. Here's one for all the love-sick teenagers. I wanted to write something that sounded like a traditional folk song (probably originally accompanied by fiddle or guitar or some such), that was then adopted by the classical music people and rearranged for amateur singing in the parlor with piano. There are lots of nice folk tunes that are standards of recital repertoire now that started out as back porch or pub music. I spent a lot of time trying to decide how florid my imaginary later day arranger got with their piano arrangement, and ended up keeping it pretty simple for accessible parlor playing back in the days before radios. (: How did I do with my way-back machine? Happy Valentine's Day, a little late! (You'll need to open up the pdf to see the words, or you can watch the youtube below, with the score scrolling by.)
  11. This is my "Three Transformations of an Original Theme for Solo Violin, Op. 292". It is my second set of transformations for solo violin, as well as my second set of transformations ever. Quoting myself from the description of my initial set of transformations, the "Five Transformations of an Original Theme for Solo Violin, Op. 260": "Whereas in variations you have always to variate from the main theme, in transformations, you transform from the initial theme 'a' into 'b', and then from 'b' into 'c'. You are, in other words, freer." This time around, I considered the theme to be the first transformation simply because, unlike the case of a theme and variations, the theme of a series of transformations is neither more nor less important than any of its transformations. In fact, either of the three transformations in the current piece can be considered to be the theme, not necessarily the first one. We can therefore say that the major difference between a set of variations and a set of transformations is that the latter is not theme-centric while the former is. Making an analogy with atonality in which there is no tonal center, we might say that in transformations there is no thematic center, There is merely a relationship between individual transformations, between different embodiments/treatments/expressions of related musical themes. In my compositional output, I can say that I see the transformation as occupying a middle ground between the sententia and the soliloquy. Each transformation is longer and more developed than a sententia but less so than a soliloquy. Another way to think of transformations would be as "variations on no theme", or "variations of a composition" or "Variations of composition/composing". Here is the link to my first set of transformations: http://www.youngcomposers.com/archive/music/listen/7998/five-transformations-of-an-original-theme-for-solo-violin-op-260/
  12. Hello all, Here is a set of solo piano pieces I've composed. They can be performed individually or as an entire group. Each particular piece pays homage to a certain musical style and/or time period. The recording here is of only a few of the movements. The score of these select movements is also attached. Please let me know if anyone is interested in playing/performing them! Thank you for listening!
  13. Here is a piece I wrote in response to ChristianPerrotta's call for solo recorder music. I apologize in advance for any oddities in the score. I attempted to make it look as good as possible while trying to use a particular notation program that I don't think I'll ever go through the trouble of using again. Thanks for listening, and although it's not relevant to the music, happy New Year!
  14. So, @danishali903 called for solo viola pieces. Here are my 2 cents. I really hope the double-stops in the second piece are not uncomfortable to play :D In fact, all those legatures of the second piece can be ignored and substituted by whatever you think is more idiomatic and executable.
  15. I composed this little rondo for solo piano. It has intentionally simplistic harmony and starts quietly and plainly, but by the end it's fiery and dramatic. It is in the form A-B-A-C-A-Coda.
  16. This is my first piece for alto recorder. I have had a soprano recorder from childhood but never learned to properly play it. I believe I also wrote a simple piece for myself to try to play, maybe a year or two ago. But unfortunately I never found it. This piece was inspired by and composed in response to Christian Perrotta's challenge for solo alto recorder pieces: http://www.youngcomposers.com/t34429/solo-alto-recorder-challenge/#comment-1186669797
  17. This is my second composition for alto recorder, a set of three sententiae. I am submitting it as my second entry to Christian Perrotta's challenge for solo alto recorder pieces: http://www.youngcomposers.com/t34429/solo-alto-recorder-challenge/#comment-1186669797 Here is the link to my first alto recorder piece: http://www.youngcomposers.com/t34434/soliloquy-for-alto-recorder-no-1/
  18. This is my modest entry for the 2016 Fall Competition. It's a set of variations for solo alto recorder, recorded in my not-even-close-to-a-studio bedroom. It's me playing it. More information can be read in the Notes pdf file. A link to an actual presentation of the original theme (an anonymous folk music) can be watched here (there's a short lively intro before the music starts): Variações sobre o Siriá.mp3
  19. I've been studying violin instrumentation for a bit, and the last resource I looked at was a video by Thomas Goss on unaccompanied violin scoring. At the end of this lecture video, he asks the viewer to compose a 2-3 minute piece focused on lyricism and craft. This is what I came up with: my first attempt at violin scoring. The playback on my notation software is pretty crappy quality, so just to be clear, I mean the quadruple stops to be two successive double stops, favoring the top two notes. And the accelerando does not really stop at m. 39, that is just another inconsistency with my notation software. :/
  20. This is, in my opinion, the most beautiful piece of music I have ever written. Enjoy^^
  21. This is my 29th soliloquy for violin. Here is the link to my previous violin soliloquy: http://www.youngcomposers.com/t34051/soliloquy-for-violin-no-28/
  22. This is my 9th Soliloquy for flute. For some reflective moods, I find the flute to be the best instrument for the soliloquy. Here is the link to my previous soliloquy for flute: http://www.youngcomposers.com/archive/music/listen/8289/soliloquy-for-flute-no-8/
  23. A short unaccompanied solo I wrote for one of my flutist friends. My basic train of thought when conducting this was to present a few themes, and then restate them in loose variation style, present a new theme, so on and so forth. When I presented it to her, her only complaint was my grouping sixteenth notes around a key change at measures 15 and 16. I hope some flutists and composers can offer advice and criticisms.
  24. UNFINISHED VERSION! I am trying to compose one of my favourite poems for soprano or tenor voice (octave below), but I'm littlebit confused, right now. I have never composed for solistic voice and accompainment before, only pure choral and some orchestral pieces I have worked. I'm asking for advice, if my work fits in some style of solistic pieces, because just like I said, I have no experience with solo, nor browsed any sheet of the "old masters" to have a look at how it works basically. So the poem is about spring, and the first verses could make out a sleeping song too. This work is unfinished, I have 3 more verses, in which I'd like to use more themes, more joy and sadness, etc. My question would be if it works well so far. The lyrics are in Hungarian, so I try to make a freestyle translation. Here you go: When Spring divides its kissis, and within the greening forests, sunshine is present, Waking up on the wet lawn, Tiny, small, white stars of Earth. To the velvet of the fields covered with dew, Whitening and falling down thousands of starflowers, And above, the wind blows softly, So the trees are waving at the edge of the forest. (...)
  25. Heyoh fellow composers! I just found an year old piano improvisation in one of my messy projects. I think it actually sounds surprisingly complete for an improvisation, but I'll surely need to learn play this and rerecord it. Meanwhile, I'd like to ask what you fellas think of the structure of this? How do you react to the fast jumps from higher sections to the lows and back up? Also, as always, I'm always curious on what associations music awakes in other people, so be free to share your thoughts! Anything else crab your attention? Hints on how to make it more interesting? Any feedback highly appreciated :) Thanks!
