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):

Beautifully constructed and performed.  This would work great as a solo violin piece as well, reminiscent of Bach's partitas for solo violin.

Great! The melody is beautiful, almost mystical, and you develop it really well. I particularly liked the little touch of jazzy chromaticism in variation 5.

You're always writing the such distinctive stuff for these competitions! I've never heard music for a recorder sound so good. I love the theme you chose. Also very distinctive. You're capable of incorporating your own culture into your music so well. I'm not at all in touch with my Mexican heritage so it doesn't really show up in my music. Nice going, man!
