  1. Hey everybody! I'm new to this forum so this is my first post. I am an organist and accordionist and recently started composing my own music because, you know, why not? I enjoy doing it, but have had some trouble recently so I am looking for some advice on how I can improve. I am trying to compose in a baroque style, sort of like my two favorite composers, Bach and Vivaldi. I am trying some "simple" forms currently, like minuets and chorales. They don't sound terrible to my ears, but I know that there is lots of room to improve. The files are attached if you would like to help me out. (thank you!!) My first question is: How can I come up with good ideas (and continue the ideas)? Sometimes when I try to compose I just get nothing and end up deleting my work out of frustration. My second question is: How can I eventually build my way up to compose more complex things? I have tried other forms and some more complex music, but am unable to make anything sound natural. If anyone can help me out with this that would be great. I can't thank the people who do enough. Thanks again everyone!
  2. Hi everyone! I wrote this baroque style fugue as a studie piece. I am applying to the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music (in Budapest, Hungary) this year, and I want to send in this fugue (they require a lot of study piece). I am hoping some of you can help me out with ideas, how to make it more stylish, more accurate. I listened to it so many times, I can't really determine how "baroque" it is.
  3. Here is present three works as arrangements/interpretations on John Stanley's voluntaries for solo organ as works for string orchestra (and solo violin(s)). I found these pieces in a youtube video with the score and immediatly saw the potential for arranging it as orchestral works. Voluntary in G minor (op.5 no.7) in two movements. Video: Voluntary VII Original Organ Version Voluntary in D minor (op.5 no.8) in three movements as a concerto for two solo violins with strings accompaniament. (I especially like the outcome of the 2nd movement) Video: Voluntary VIII Original Organ Version Voluntary in D minor (op.6 no.5) in three movements. Video: Voluntary V Original Organ Version
  4. I've always wanted to try writing a piece for organ. Though he didn't write much for organ, I am a big fan of Mozart's organ music and in particular his Fantasy in F minor which inspired this work in terms of structure and the fugal subject which is similar, though otherwise I treated the sections very differently. It is generally organized as a chaconne-like theme and variations in pairs separated by two extended sections (a fugato and a more lyrical section). I had posted an unfinished version of this in the incomplete section and I greatly appreciated the feedback. I also plan to transcribe a version for string orchestra.
  5. I composed an entire minuet in just a few minutes. It is way better than my first minuet(I never even finished that one, it was so bad), but I still might need to make some changes, particularly to the B section. I used motives to both intensify the B section as it moves to F major and to de-intensify it as it moves back to Bb major. Overall, it is in rounded binary form, which is typical for minuets. What do you think of my minuet? Does it need any changes? If so, what changes? I tried to stay in the Baroque style, thus the melody and countermelody, but should I have an ending chord to both confirm that it is the ending and make the number of bars even? That would leave me with a bit of a coda to my minuet, which isn't typical.
