  1. This is the piece I opened my daily sketches project with a long time ago, and it shows; it's not very good. I think I was trying to mess around with chord progressions using strange inversions, but I don't think it came out as I'd wanted it to. Hopefully you all can still get some sort of kick out of it :P
  2. This is a rondo in g major written for viola and piano. The score is still a little messy, so apologies for that in advance. Hope you enjoy!

    My first orchestral piece finally done! Opus 12 is written for modified orchestral ensemble consisting of : Piano, Woodwinds : flute, oboe, A clarinet Brass : French horn Percussion instruments : glockenspiel, vibraphone, tubular bells, triangle Strings : violins 1, violins 2, violas, violoncellos and contrabasses. and harp. Composition consists of first part (moderato - E major/C sharp minor), second part (F major/D minor) and third part - modified first part. Since I'm a complete amateur high school student, any helpful hints and comments are very welcomed! Score in PDF format coming soon.

  4. This is my 5th soliloquy for viola. Here is the link to my 4th soliloquy for viola with its two versions: http://www.youngcomposers.com/archive/music/listen/4150/soliloquy-for-viola-no-4/ Since I see that it is no longer possible to comment on pieces from the archives where this previous soliloquy is located, I would ask that anyone who listens to it and would like to comment on it please do so here.
  5. A Trio I composed about 3 years ago in mid-2013 for three friends who were professors at Friends University, Wichita. The unusual instrumentation was first suggested by the contrabassist, who had composed his own very fine piece for himself and the two others to play, and it inspired me to try my own hand at it. Unusual though it may be, the three instruments actually blend quite nicely together. Incidentally, the contrabassist was also a former love interest, which added yet more urgency to this attempt. The players had originally intended to premiere the work in 2014, but the plan fell through for various reasons - not the least being that the piece is somewhat challenging, and it wasn't easy for three university professors to find time to rehearse it sufficiently. In an attempt to garner some publicity, I published the piece on IMSLP, and earlier this year I heard from a trio of young men from Venezuela who had found it online and were planning to perform it. This ensemble of students did indeed premiere the piece in Venezuela in March of this year, albeit substituting 'cello for the contrabass. They did a yeoman's job of performing a piece intended to put professionals through their paces, and their performance may be found here: Scores for the movements are attached.
  6. Hi there, I am composing a duet for viola and guitar, and have some queries regarding voicing possiblities etc, as well as virtuosity in passages. It can be notated as I have it, or it could be notated in semiquavers, the bpm is 175 for a crotchet. Here is a link to the score on youtube. Tnks in advance for any advice etc. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oupfeUaWDpo
  7. Is there some place online (not YouTube!) where I can listen to the various bowing techniques in strings. For example, for someone who does not play a string, it is hard to understand the difference in marcato from spiccato fom martellato.
