  1. An experimental piece. I used galant schemas but used weird chromaticism with diverging lines in places. I dont know if it works but its fun.
  2. Csellóduó.mp3 I am a beginner. I am found of classical music, and i always try to use classical tools to create something new, something special, something beatiful. This piece is maybe my first piece i am satisfied with, or at least it is finished. Please give me feedback, anything will do! (The first "part" is melodyc, the second "part" is based on the rhythm, and it is a bit experimental.)
  3. I'm composing this piece for a challenge where the challenge is to compose a romantic piece(romantic in the sense of love, not necessarily the era). What I think about when I think about romantic love is a complicated process that starts with sudden desire(pickup in momentum in the cello leading to harmonization in sixths is what I did to try to get that across), a friendly stage with exchanges, a lot like a friendship but deeper(this is what I'm at now in my piece, an exchange of 2 motives between the flute's motive from the first theme and a second motive in the cello, like 2 people exchanging ideas and seemingly a state of agreement(acceleration towards the cadence in both motives)), a state of anger and not wanting to be with the other person, and a final calming realization phase when true love is reached. This fits well with Sonata Form and so my piece is probably going to end up in Sonata Form, just unconsciously, because of the associations with the start of a romantic relationship. And Flute and Cello are 2 of my favorite instruments. I can't say that I have a favorite woodwind though, they are all great, except maybe the Recorder. But the Cello is my favorite string instrument. Yes, I know, the flute motive slowly shifts across the beats of 4/4 in the first 10 bars. That metric shift just kind of naturally arised from me developing the motive into the flute dominant First Theme. I am stuck though at the cadence in the next 8 or 9 bars. It feels like the Cello wants to continue rising in pitch as does the Flute, as well as accelerate even further to the cadence. But I'm not sure what to do. It's mainly the Cello I am concerned about. It's approaching treble register pitch and the treble register is hard, even for an experienced cellist(Eb4 is not that far off from G4, the note at which I would consider possibly putting the cello in Treble Clef). Right away you might be like: to which I would be like: So, what do you think of my piece so far? Any advice regarding the acceleration to the cadence? Are the 32nds in the Cello motive too fast?
  4. A march for flute and cello. Im working on a bigger project at the moment but thought I'd compose something else today.
  5. At this forum the stealing and plagiarism are being encouraged.
  6. Good evening (at least here in France) ! 🙂 Here's the second movement. It's unexpectedly rather minimalist between 2'30 and 4'30. I'm fan of the orchestra's theme between 1'09 and 1'45. Please tell me if any reaction 😉
  7. Hi all, Been away from composition for several months. End of year vacations and some life tribulations were the occasion to let inspiration come back, and after a short string trio I didn't share here, I remembered about this first movement of a cello concerto I had started in summer 2018, letting it aside. So here it is, finished. It may lack some variations and the VSTs don't render the cello's staccato for instance. Hope you'll like it anyway 🙂 Next movements to come in a few weeks/months.
  8. I have written a quartet for strings on which I would like the honour of some of your criticisms. This work has sprouted from almost a year and a half of counterpoint study. It is similar to a fugue; that is, it does tend to have fugal aspects; however on the whole, this is mostly a work of counterpoint with many interesting hidden ideas embedded within it. I can understand if you are unable to listen to the entire work, as it is almost 16 minutes long; however, if you give me some feedback on even a single contrapuntal passage, I would be greatly indebted to you. Thank you for your time and I dearly hope you enjoy this work. On a side note, this recording that I have here does not take into consideration single note dynamics which is indeed frustrating; however, it is the only soundfont I could find that effectively does some of the counterpoint justice (that is, so it is not too muddy sounding).
  9. Hi guys! This is a duo I made some years ago when I lacked some of the knowledge I’ve gained lately. For example there’s no modulation in key, too little variation and maybe some flaws in terms of voice leading rules. Is this piece worth recording live or is it too boring? Will it be a messy viola key to read and play in? What can be done better in the latter half of the piece? Take care
  10. I tried composing a more light hearted piece with more unusual ideas that makes fun of itself in a way.
  11. This piece is in 4/4 time but its in the style of the minuets ive been writing. I guess it could have the title, 'tempo di menuetto' to indicate not just the tempo but style of the piece. It can be played on the piano or for flute and cello which I like.
  12. Hello guys. Haven't been active in this forum for a long time. So this is my second draft of my first string quartet. So you're advices/critiques will help in my venture in writing the next parts of the piece (yes some parts are not good).Hope you like it. https://flat.io/score/5e6f38d9b35b8f06521c6575-string-quartet-no-1-in-e-minor-2020
  13. Attached is the third movement of my piano trio. (yes completed before the second) I'm quite pleased as I wrote it very quickly for my standards. It's in minuet and trio form and is very short. please leave any thoughts down below.
  14. This is a piece I wrote recently about a nervous auditioner (I think that’s the right word) in an audition for area or district band. It is supposed to be more on the theatrical side with some instruments representing people. There are four movements, each representing a part of the audition process. I will explain each one in depth:
  15. This is my "Soliloquy for Violoncello No. 9", composed on July 22, 2013, as performed and recorded by me today.
  16. This is a piece I started composing last night after listening to String Duo for Violin and Cello in D major by Haydn. I felt like composing a piece in B minor for some reason, don't know why, maybe because I haven't really used B minor all that much in 3 years of composing. But as I started listening to it, it sounded more to me like a slow second movement than an isolated work. But what piece would have a slow movement in a minor key outside of the exceptions like Moonlight Sonata where the slow movement is the first movement and suites where the key relations aren't necessarily close? What I'm composing seems to be more like the slow movement of a sonata than a suite. I mean for one thing, piano sonata slow movements do tend to have this 2 melodies thing(bass clef melody as well as treble clef melody) that is certainly in my piece. And from all my experience listening to both solo and duet sonatas, not once have I heard a minor key second movement, although such a sonata probably exists. Anyway, what do you think of it so far? Starting at measure 12, I have a cello solo, as you can probably tell by me going into tenor clef for more than just a few bars and how high up in tenor clef it gets. I don't think the violin will just wait until the solo is finished, but I do want to give at least 1 measure to just the cello before I bring the violin back in in its low register and in more of the melodic bass role the cello had before the solo. I might change the "in B minor" part of the title if I do decide to go full on sonata with this piece. I might even change "String Duo" to "Duo Sonata for Violin and Cello" if I do that.
  17. This is my Soliloquy for Violoncello No. 13. It was inspired by my getting back my cello after a long time. I practiced it, hoping to be able to adequately perform it and be able to post my performance of it instead of the computer-generated MP3. However, having not touched the cello for many years, I still need much more practice to give it a smooth performance, let alone a good interpretation of the piece, and hence do justice to the piece in performance. Maybe, I'll do so in the future. In the meantime, any cellist who is interested in the piece would be welcome to take up the challenge, perform the piece, and post their performance! Reviews are also welcome.
  18. This piece was something I put together a while ago. It isn’t to complex and like usual, I’m always welcoming to advice on how to make the harmony a bit more complicated.
  19. Hello there! During this COVID-19 pandemic, I decided to revise and continue one of my old compositions, a cello sonata, which I started around 2018 but have not managed to finish it. I decided to dig it out and start working on it again, and here it is. The sonata is in four movements, depicting the various musical periods of Baroque, Classical, Romantic and 20th Century. Movements: I. Allemande/Fugue: This movement was meant to be a separate project on a baroque suite for cello and piano, but I decided to make it part of this sonata.The movement initially only had the Allemande part, then I decided to add in the fugue in the middle to make the movement more interesting with a contrasting middle section. II. Allegro con brio: This sonata was in fact one of my early attempts in creating a piece in sonata form. I was quite inspired by Beethoven's sonatas at the time (both cello and piano), especially in the development section. To be honest, this movement is not really classical; it has some romantic references, especially the use of hemiola in the second subject inspired by a Brahms piece. I quite like how I have revised this piece, though I feel further improvements could be made. III. Variations on a nocturne: The tune is very familiar, and I think you will guess it soon enough. The first two variations are inspired by Czerny etudes (again, another Romantic composer), while the third is a dance modeled on some sight-reading piece. The fourth is inspired by a Brahms cello sonata movement, then the fifth kind of follows the style of a movement from Tchaikovsky's cello concerto. IV. Allegro marcato: The start is inspired by a Prokofiev sonata movement, in addition to one of Charles Ives' Violin Sonata which has an ostinato at the start. The piece functions as a recapitalization of the sonata, recalling motifs and ideas from the previous three movements. The start uses the fugue subject, for example. I hope you will all enjoy this piece. This piece is dedicated to a cello classmate in my music class. I have yet to show her this piece though haha. Any suggestions and feedback are welcome.
  20. Here's a cello piece I've been working on for a while. I still have a lot to learn when it comes to composing and mixing orchestral music so any feedback will be much appreciated! 😄
  21. This is a piece I wrote last week. I have separated the ‘movements’ by one measure long rests, and I understand if that may seem a bit too long; I have made them shorter in my more recent pieces. The reason I named it “Try, Try Again” was because the second and fourth movements reminded me of someone making a mistake whereas the other movements sounded like someone achieving or succeeding. I also included a quote on the last page of the score that I felt went along with the title of the piece.
  22. Hi everyone! This is my first attempt at a string quartet. It is the first movement of a larger string quartet that I intend to make in D Minor. It would be nice if you could review it and leave some feedback. Thank you! (really sorry I only have the midi mockup, haven't got it performed yet) link: https://youtu.be/yVSecRZSyCg
  23. I recently finished this composition and am looking for more advice. Considering this is my third piece where I’ve written for Strings, i think I’m getting better with writing for them. I can’t think of a name for it though so please recommend any possible names or ideas for names!
  24. As you've seen already, this is my first post! I currently finished my 5th piece, which is this cello sonata number 2. As I am implementing atonality into mostly my 2nd movement, I find that the 2nd movement is too difficult for me as a person that only learned cello for about 2 years, so I do ask for any suggestions to simplify that part, thanks! The audio file my not represent the effects that will appear on the cello, such as the harmonics, left hand pizz etc. But still, please if any one has any suggestions or advice, please comment below! I am looking forward to share with all the piece that I'm currently working on, which is a piano piece. (btw, also I will add more slurs in my score later, cuz it seems as though it is weird without a lot of slurs in such a fast tempo) Cello Sonata 2.mid
