Oh, This Lonely Heart of Mine | For Alto and Piano
Ferrum posted a topic in Choral, VocalHello everybody! This is my new piece as a result of my orchestral piece break. I said in my latest post that I was going to upload a prelude, that is still coming, but I kinda wanna try composing a vocal work, so here it is! Searching the material for this work was tough, but I stumbled upon an impromptu poem performed by a character (Scrump Toggins) while watching a roleplay session on WildRP. If I get enough material, maybe I will make a full song cycle, but who knows. Also, there's a quote from a piece that I've uploaded here somewhere in the piece, have fun finding that lol Anyways, this is my first time ever trying to compose a vocal work, so all feedbacks and opinions are appreciated. Enjoy! (P.S Y'know, if anybody wants to sing this I'll gladly provide the instrumental version 👀)
Hi, I love this piece so much but I don't have a violin to play it, so I decided to arrange it for alto recorder. Here is the PDF and the try that I made to play it :3. Hope you like it. i recorded the recorder alone and then added it together with the acompaniment.

Dinosaur Sonata for Saxophone & Piano
Maarten Bauer posted a topic in Chamber MusicHello! Here is my latest composition with a theme, on which I have always wanted to write music: DINOSAURS! This short one-movement sonata is composed for alto saxophone and piano. I will perform this piece for the pre-study composition on alto saxophone accompanied by a pianist. The sonata is kind of programmatic: The setting is a restful valley full of dinosaurs (including tryceratops). Baby dinosaurs are playing and having fun, but then the dinosaurs smell danger. There is panic, because the dinosaurs are not sure where the predators will come from, they only hear their heavy footsteps. Suddenly an enormous tyrannosaurus runs out of the forest. A friendly baby triceratops flees and runs as fast as it can. It is catched by the predator, but luckily the tyrannosaurus has become tired. The baby escapes and all dinosaurs continue with their restful life in the beautiful valley. I hope you like it! Feel free to comment! Maarten
Weesgegroet (Ave Maria)
Maarten Bauer posted a topic in Choral, VocalHello everbody, This is my first serious choral composition, which I composed to practise counterpoint and voice leading. The piece is an Ave Maria, but the language is Dutch, which made it quite hard to compose music on. It is a hard language regarding accentuation. Dutch text: Wees gegroet, Maria, vol van genade. De Heer is met U. Gij zijt de gezegende onder de vrouwen, En gezegend is Jezus, de Vrucht van Uw schoot. Heilige Maria, Moeder van God, Bid voor ons, zondaars, Nu en in het uur van onze dood. Amen. There is trouble with the audio in this topic, so here is the link: Nevertheless, I am pretty content with it. What do you think? Tips are welcome! Maarten
Solo Alto Recorder Challenge
ChristianPerrotta posted a topic in ChallengesSo, as a pianist, and now also a recordist, I can't avoid comparing the amout of repertoire written for solo piano and solo recorder, the former is quite enormous, the latter is very scarce. So, I've decided to create this little challenge and encourage you guys to write something for solo alto recorder. Yay! As a prize, I will record the piece and post it here (the quality of the recording is similar to my Autumn Competition Entry "Variações sobre o Siriá"). I may also pick the piece to perform live in some performances I MAY have during my master's degree here (please, notice, I MAY have, it's not a promise). I don't have many guidelines for the entries. If you feel like you could do something, try. It'll be very welcome. I may even chose more than one piece. I've also attached some advice on writting for solo alto recorder. If you have any other doubt, feel free to ask here, and I'll answer. I'll set a deadline for January 9th.

The Oak Tree
pateceramics posted a topic in Choral, VocalHere's one for all the love-sick teenagers. I wanted to write something that sounded like a traditional folk song (probably originally accompanied by fiddle or guitar or some such), that was then adopted by the classical music people and rearranged for amateur singing in the parlor with piano. There are lots of nice folk tunes that are standards of recital repertoire now that started out as back porch or pub music. I spent a lot of time trying to decide how florid my imaginary later day arranger got with their piano arrangement, and ended up keeping it pretty simple for accessible parlor playing back in the days before radios. (: How did I do with my way-back machine? Happy Valentine's Day, a little late! (You'll need to open up the pdf to see the words, or you can watch the youtube below, with the score scrolling by.)
Alto Saxophone Concertino No.1 in f minor ‘’Batterij’’, Opus 14 Dear reader / listener, I composed this concertino on the 14th of July for a national composition competition in Holland. The piece is about my black-out, which I had last school year. The composition is originally written for members of the Jong Nederlands Blazers Ensemble (Young Dutch Wind Ensemble) and me as soloist: Alto saxophone; oboe; clarinet in B-flat; horn in F; bassoon. Feedback would be very nice, because I have not received much useful feedback from the judges at the competition. Kind regards, Maarten Bauer (16). Nota bene about the video: We had to practise the composition in less than fifteen minutes, so there are some mistakes. In my opinion it still sounds better than when it is played by a computer.
