  1. Hello everybody, Today I finished my fourth symphony. To be honest, I hate to write orchestral music, because it feels like I am drowing in an ocean of possibilities and material. Yet I wanted to 'practice' my orchestration skills. The form of the piece is inspired by mosaic form, because for me recognition is one of the driving factors in the music. The lay-out and final corrections still have to be done. I am sorry for the very small staves, but this is needed, otherwise not all instruments could stand on the page. ''Randstad'' is the name of the area located in the West of Holland (Amsterdam, Den Haag, Rotterdam, Utrecht). It is one of Europe's bussiest 'metropoles' (7 million) and this is where most of the economical, social and political activities take place. I don't live in the Randstad, but in the middle of the Netherlands, where actually nothing exciting happens. What I wanted to express with this symphony is the chaotic, but also rich character of the Randstad. I am actually pretty satisfied with the result. What do you think? Any feedback or comments? Maarten (The mp3 file is called ''Nederland,'' which is wrong.)
  2. Some stuff i am working on for ages already... feeling like i have to still searching for an appropriate form and the tools to make those motifs breath as they deserve. Maybe i should split some motifs into seperate pieces? Thanksful for any input :)
  3. Hello everyone. It's a rough few months for me in a lot of ways, so this is really the first piece I have put up in a while. I don't often talk in the forum, as I usually just post. Anyway, here is my first, proper symphony, my Op. 41, and it is about my stay at Dublin last spring. I loved my time there, and I plan on returning soon. It is in four, semi-programmatic movements, and the whole piece is about 40 minutes. I really wanted to share it with everyone, so let me know your thoughts and criticisms, which I always appreciate. Thanks!
  4. This is the piece I newly composed, hope everyone like it, and @Monarcheon welcome your commentation.
  5. I'd greatly appreciate any feedback
  6. This is the piece I newly composed, hope everyone like it and comment on it.
  7. Hello, this is my new song about Spring. I'm sorry if I'm late. :D I didn't have much time to write music these days. I hope, you'll like my new work, please write your opinion in comment! https://soundcloud.com/mardumusix/oliver-kovacs-spring-is-coming

  9. Hey guys, I did some live recordings with the budapest scoring orchestra in 2015, here's my favorite one, "Spaghetti Con Brio", enjoy! : (mix by Greg Townley) They had just around 25 minutes to record that piece but pretty much nailed it (the runs in the middle part are ridiciously hard). Here's another one, I especially enjoyed the strong brass playing: (mix by Greg again, his work was amazing on this one) And then I did another shorter one, but in a moore cartoon style direction: (mixed by John Rodd) This one is the last work I did (new to come!) and is again kinda Disney, but a bit more heroic. Actually especially the first part is inspired quite a lot from John Ottman's Astroboy (fantastic score btw, check it out if you didn't yet). If you'd like to hear more, check out my other works. http://fredericbernardmusic.com/listen/ As I was asked by a lot of people; you can download pdf scores for all compositions here: http://fredericbernardmusic.com/pdf-scorestutorials/ As an introductory offer you can download the Mr. Alice and Spaghetti Con Brio full conductor scores for free (by just clicking on the download button) you name the price for the other two scores, starting at just 1 $. Feedback would be highly appreciated! :)
  10. Hi all, Been working on this for a while as an exercise in sonata form and, specifically, development. Since it was an exercise, I kept the language very tonal so I didn't have to worry about dealing with more contemporary techniques. Would love to know what you think. Thanks!
  11. I wrote this a few years ago and I still think it's one of my best works. I initially planned on writing a symphony, but I ran into writers block during the 2nd movement and decided to just release movement 1 as a standalone overture. (I eventually did complete a full 4-movement symphony a few months ago, but not based at all on this material, nor in the same key.)
  12. This is a Classical symphony I recently finished. I started off with the idea of writing something in the style of Stamitz and the Mannheim school, but more Haydn/Mozart influence came in as I went along. It's not really a pastiche, though; there are some harmonic things in the developments that are not really characteristic of the style, and it's very much written with modern instruments in mind. Any feedback would be most appreciated.
  13. My first attempt at a symphony, as well as my first post on this site. Hello everyone! It's only about 21 minutes -- I'm definitely not yet at the skill level required to write an hour-long piece -- but it does qualify as a four-movement symphony. This took me about 5 months to write from beginning to end. The last movement borrows no less than 4 different themes, all from different works. Three of these are somewhat obscure national anthems; the other I think you'll have no trouble recognizing.
  14. As I slowly upload everything again, I bring my largest work up-to-date, my second symphony. It is in four movements and lasts about 25 minutes. It was composed in 2008 for the 50th anniversary of Slovene radio symphony orchestra and was selected by artistic advisors of the orchestra to be performed throughout 2008/09 season. So premiere took place on 23rd April 2009. I adopted some formal approach which is characteristic to late-romantic symphonies - frequent use of the basic motif throughout other movements, rich and colourful orchestration, free contemporary music language which uses different techniques at the same time: tonality vs atonality, aleatorics vs clear pulsation - clear melodies vs aleatoric counterpoint. I wish you pleasant listening!
  15. I attached the final two movements as just MP3's, as I have yet to upload them to YouTube. This is my most extended piece of music, which was completely over the period of about 6 days. It consists of nine movements for orchestra based around Dante's Inferno, a description of Hell. The score may need some revision, but the work as a whole is ~160 pages, so minor revisions are to be put off. Enjoy, and check out my YouTube channel for a more in-depth description of some of the individual pieces.
  16. A concert overture I just recently finished about Snowdonia National Park, Wales (Eryri in Welsh), which I recently visited. Let me know what you think!
  17. Hi! It's a big topic, but in general, how different is composing a symphony instead of for example a chorale harmonization piece? Do the same rules apply, just that different instruments have different restrictions/advantages? Or is it a hole new world of rules etc.? I appreciate any answers :nod: :D
  18. Greetings fellow composers, I have a quick question regarding sonata-allegro form in a symphonic movement: Is it generally frowned upon for the second subject group to actually be in a slower metric tempo than the primary subject group? E.g. in 6/8 time: Primary subject group: dotted quarter = 120 Transitional phrase: rit. e dim. Secondary subject group: dotted quarter = 80 closing phrase: rall. to fermata || Development: dotted quarter = 120 (Same applies for the Exposition repeat) I've heard of Rachmaninoff being criticized for this practice. Is there any basis in it being frowned upon? It works organically in my symphony so far, but I sometimes worry that it will be criticized as an architectural weakness. Thanks for any input! Max
