  1. Somebody knows who is the performer in this aproach on BWV 914? I love his aproach on the adagio, most performers do the passage that starts in the measure 20 (3:34 in the video) of the adagio very slowly and delicate but he or she does it very passionate, that it feels like the red carpet for the fugue.
  2. Hello, Recently I created a set of variations for a competition held by the YouTube channel TwoSetViolin. I had to write 11 variations for two violins and piano , each for a different composer or genre. I believe it turned out well, but I should note I only had a week to create it, and each variation had to be at least 20 seconds long. Despite this, it should be a pleasant and thrilling listen. *Headphone warning- loud artificial harmonics in recording Variations: 1. Bach 2. Mozart 3. Beethoven 4. Brahms 5. Debussy 6. Paganini 7.
  3. Variation Project is calling for submission. We are looking to find 5-10 newly composed variations on the canon that was used to compose “Goldberg Variations” by J. S Bach. The canon can be found https://ilyafriedberg.com/variation-project/ Each variation should last between 1 to 6 minutes. You can submit as many variations as you wish, as long as it is done separately. We are launching this exciting project to extend JS Bach’s Goldberg Variation by adding 20-30 newly composed variations. With successful fund raising (please spread the word!) and lots of interests, we hope to bring n
  4. I spent a good number of hours and wrote this all today. There was a reddit composition challenge for June to write a 2 part invention and I'm a big fan of Bach and developing my faculties in such a way so I gave it a try. Given how much I just winged it and went straight forward with the first subject and so on that I came up with, it pulled together nicely I think.
  5. https://soundcloud.com/ian-campbell-89/d-major-chorale-new-version This is the first draft of a little composition assignment I had for a theory 2 class. I am providing audio with piano rendition and have it scored condensed just because it is more practical. I did not put the fermatas in the score but you will be able to tell where they are from listening to the audio with where it elongates at those points. I'm not really trying to emulate Bach but it would be nice to learn more about Bach chorale harmonization, and as many specific critiques and tips as possible would be good. There are a
  6. As a result of the request from @danishali903 to compose some music for solo viola, I have composed this ''Melody for Viola'' (Opus 26) today. See for the post under Community > Repetoire > CALL FOR SOLO VIOLA MUSIC Bach's cello suites have heavily inspired me, as you can probably hear. I have never written for a solo string instrument before, so I hope that it is technically playable. If not, please tell me what and how to improve it. To Danishali: Hopefully, this piece is suitable for your playing in the hospital. I wish you good luck and a lot of fun!
  7. Hi, a new video with the main theme from Bach's Goldberg Variations analyzed. Decoding Bach's Harmonic Language https://youtu.be/8TlfgyCB3fk?list=PLt-Oh3MSFwB-mm1oa86m_0R3nh5hQAQs3
  8. I have read the works of Fux and Rameau, I am interested in writing music in the style of the baroque and the classical. Before I practice their teachings I have some questions: Apparently Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms ALL studied along the lines of Fux, and disagreed with much of Rameau's teachings. Again, considering that I am ONLY interested in writing music in the style of the baroque and the classical, should I abandon Rameau and stick only to Fux? I asked this question a month ago, but did not give as much information. Thanks.
  9. Hi , here is a pic of a Guitar arrangement of Bach BWV 1009 Cello suite no.3. I have worked out the first 8 bars but not bars 5 and 6 : [G ] [D ] [D ] [G ] [? ] [? ] [D A ] [D ] Can you tell me the chords for bar 5 and 6? cheers!
  10. I'm a great fan of Bach's Toccatas for harpsichord (BWV 910 to BWV 917), which have many sections (toccata itself, slow parts, fugues etc.). Do you know any other composer (from a period AFTER baroque) that has toccatas in the same style? I mean, not only the improvisatory/virtuosistic ones? For example, Ravel has a toccata, which is completely different from these ones by Bach. So, I'm looking for any one similar to it (Buxtehude also has some, but he's baroque, and I want from other periods). Thanks
  11. I know that there is a line that can be written, as the pedal line, but indicating it is the sostenuto pedal. But I have found other scores that seem to call -or could be played with- the sostenuto pedal, without writting the lines. And I was asking myself if that is allowed. Also, if it is allowed, what is the best way to write it. In example, I have these two scores, that have the notes as indicating different instructions for two instruments -as in violins pentagram in an orchestral score-. Mussorgsky, Bilder einer Ausstellung, Promenade: Bach, Praeludium I, BMV 846 A
  12. The latin origin of the word fugue, it implies a sort of battle between two or more parties each one representing an imitative voice, thus the initial theme attempts to flee while the eminent imitation chases the theme in a simultaneous yet harmonious manner. If we are to consider what the fugue means, it seems to be a jousting of warfare which if this or my piece is not a fugue or a variant of the fuga family, then is there a war present or not otherwise something different taking place? Perhaps not a war & if a war, then perhaps the mechanics of warfare are being represented in a set of
  13. This is a serious discussion on the monumental 2nd & 5th form Bach. I think this to be the greatest performance recording & articulation of these two preludes besides the recording from the episode "The Sixth Finger" from the old Twilight Zone series. I tried with this post to imitate it to the best of my abilities with mere midi tech. I did many things to improve an otherwise dull midi presentation anywhere in the internet regarding these two praeludiums. One-though the first measures of the C Minor one are unplayable by human hands though one would simply shift them an octave higher,
  14. I found this quite interesting: Chad "Sir Wick" Hughes Aikman b. 1959 Fox b. 1931 Heiden (1910 –2002) Hindemith (1895-1963) Sekles (1872-1934) I.Knorr (1853-1916)
