#1 YOUNG COMPOSERS MAGAZINE Hello fellow composers! Music is enrichment of life. We cannot imagine a life without music. Our passion is music and that is why we decided to start an interesting project: creating a magazine about music related themes. Our goal is to share our love for music. We proudly present the first edition of the Young Composers magazine. You will find various themes in this magazine. From the theoretical discussion of contemporary musical forms to a recipe of a favourite dish by a well-known composer. The magazine is linked with the internet forum Young Composers. All editors are member of this forum and most of us like to compose, professionally or as a hobbyist. Some articles will be therefore linked with the Young Composers forum. Furthermore, the links that are shared in the articles can all be found in a topic in the Young Composers magazine department on the forum. Every cover of the Young Compsosers magazine will have another composer's portrait. This time it is the maestro Johann Sebastian Bach. My admiration for Bach is immense, because his music seems to be timeless. Everybody has at least one Bach composition, which he or she likes. Above: Aria of the Goldberg Variations by Bach (BWV 988). This masterpiece helps me to fall asleep. I have listened to it for more than hundred times now and it never bores me. For me, that is the power of Bach. We hope that we can transmit our passion for music to you and hope to see you on the forum. Enjoy the reading!

Hello everybody, This was my first saxophone quartet that I composed one and a half year ago. . . (Opus 8). When I composed it, I was into composing for max. four months. I There are mistakes everywhere and when I wrote this I did not understand how to modulate (LOL), so there are quite subite transitions to other keys. I thought it would be fun for you to see how I am developed in one and a half year. The Mozart and Haydn influences are evident. I find this piece now uggly, but still I think at some places the music is pretty nice. The uggliest parts in my opinion are the endless repetitions, which makes the music too monotonous and boring. What do you think? Maarten
Hi, I have uploaded this piece before and I have included feedback, I received, in the first movement. The original description: For my audition for pre-study at the conservatory with classical saxophone I played the Cinq Danses Exotiques by Jean Françaix. I fell in love with his music. On account of Françaix' music I composed 3 Melodies for Alto Saxophone and Piano, Opus 25 (Dutch: Drie Melodieën voor Altsaxofoon en Piano) today. Feedback and sharing your opinions would make me very happy! Stay tuned for the other two melodies! Maarten Bauer
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.
