  1. 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 emu
  2. This is a tuba concerto with piano I have been working on for quite a while. Originally this was meant to span multiple movements but I decided to run the movements together and give it cyclic properties. The sustain pedal on the piano is just holding out on this midi rendering so it gets muddy and the 8va markings cause both staves to move up or down an octave for whatever reason even if I didn't write it like that. Anyways, I hope you enjoy and criticism is welcome.
  3. I was just practicing music theory, and then, I decided to write something classic, and I tried to follow every rule I learned. Also, I could solve the problem "feeling incomplete" by using Cadence. I hope you enjoy!
  4. My first ever completed composition from March 2017.
  5. This is my soliloquy for violin No. 30. Here is the link to my Soliloquy for Violin No. 29: https://www.youngcomposers.com/t34240/soliloquy-for-violin-no-29/
  6. I was contacted a couple weeks ago about a project in Belgium which intended to get 25 composers to each write a 2 minute piece in any style for a certain percussion setup (choice of three), and a 50 minute piece would then be strung together. This is what I came up with! It's for marimba, bongos, and temple blocks (all one player). I had a lot of fun writing for my native instrument for the first time in a few years. Unfortunately I don't have access to a marimba to test out the part on, but I air-marimba'd a lot of it to make sure it was theoretically doable. Doing the notation in Sibelius w
  7. A short piece for solo piano, basically a variation of the same theme in 2 parts, separated by the change of dynamics.
  8. Please excuse the playing on this. If any pianists would like to record a better version I'd be happy to hear from you!
  9. 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!
  10. These are some pieces based on natural things that I see or imagine.
  11. Another piece written for nothing in particular, the mixing is not up to scratch as usual, however, feedback welcome as always.
  12. 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!
  13. 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
  14. 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:
  15. 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!
  16. 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 hav
  17. 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 pl
  18. 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
  19. 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!
  20. 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!
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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
  24. 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/
  25. 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
