Fall Piano Competition


Recommended Posts

Composing an effective melody is not an easy thing to do. Even for the best writing a melody can be a daunting task. But I believe it's an important skill for any composer to have, so this is the challenge;

 

-Compose a piece for piano with a beautiful melody. It could be a waltz, prelude, nocturne, etc.... I just want the most lovely melody your muse can come up with. 

-It can be in any harmonic language (Baroque, Romantic, Modern...)

-The piece can't already have a live recording, I want to be the first to record it  :thumbsup:  .  

-Piece length cannot exceed 6 minutes.

-Due date October 1st. 

 


The winner of the competition will have their work recorded by me (and I'm currently searching to upgrade my recording setup) 


 

-Last rule, have fun!  :cool:

Can we all agree now that the deadline is the day after whenever I submit mine? :P

Wow... what's not to like about this recording??   Great job! I'm speechless, you've played it wonderfully! The melodies and nuances were perfectly executed, and it was a pleasure to listen - especi

Okay, so I think we should cover something that hasn't been mentioned yet. Who is going to judge this competition? Will it be Sonataform by himself, or are you (Sonataform) going to assign a panel of judges like some of the previous competitions?

 

And so far the competitors are:

 

1). ChristianPerrotta

2). Austenite

3). DanJTitchener

4). Thatguy v2.0

5). Mozartito

6). Mozartinspiration

7). MuseScience

8). bkho

9). luderart

 

Just trying to help this get a little bit more organized. :)

@Luderart: No minimum time limit, you're good.

 

@MuseScience: Thanks for making the list of those competing. I'll remain the sole judge in my competitions though and for a few reasons:

 

1. I like to choose a piece I feel I can interpret as a pianist. 

2. Though I like a good challenge I don't want to be stuck with a piece that's impossible to play.

3. Ultimately the whole competition simply runs smoother.

4. I could think of more reasons but those are basically the most important ones :thumbsup:   

 

Overall I strive to be a fair judge. I'm just as likely to pick a piece that's super "modern" as I am super "conservative". Those labels mean nothing to me, I simply judge every piece on it's own merits.  

 

My mantra has always been, "Good music is simply the result of inspiration and hard work."
