  1. I have decided to make a progress post for my suite so that I can get feedback on each of the movements without having to make multiple posts. This starting post will be about the first movement of my suite. I initially planned for the melody to not be in ternary form while the harmony was in ternary form, but the melody ended up being in ternary form. I chose the key of G major because it sounds warm to me. To reinforce this, I decided on the instrumentation being string quartet + piano. I use a sequence to modulate from G major to D major as a transition into the B section. So, I guess you could call it ternary sonata form, whatever that means. I include a short canonic passage in the B section of the piece after I have established D major as the tonality. Afterwards, there is a short transition back to the A section. This emphasizes the subdominant and even includes plagal motion. After the themes of the A section are played, there is a passage that includes 2 creschendos. And then the movement ends with a plagal cadence at fortissimo. What do you think of it? Did I get that warm, sunny quality that I was aiming for? Here are the mp3 and pdf:
  2. Dear Young Composers, The Symphonic Society of Limeira recently opened a call for scores for chamber music and symphonic works. Please consider submitting your work. For more information regarding this call for scores, click in the link bellow. https://www.sinfonicadelimeira.com.br/call-for-scores Best regards,
  3. Guten Tag! This is one of the projects I have been working on this semester! Feel free to check out the concept behind it at this blog post: Composition Notebook: "Morning Birds" - the story. What I am attaching for ya'll is the full score (which includes the cues for the three different flute parts, but not the actual parts), one of the flute parts (so you can see what they look like), a MIDI rendering of all the orchestra and flute parts combined, and a MIDI rendering of just the orchestra part (Titled "Three Violin Version..."). One of the flaws of the combined MIDI file is that the flute parts are made up of several short fragments/'bird calls',as you will see in the attached flute part, and the players will be improvising which bird call they play when. In other words, it will be a much more organic process than a computer just playing them all in order, as happens in the recording. I think the MP3 of everything combined sounds pretty terrible and clamorous which is not at all the intent of the piece. I suspect that this chaos will be lessened considerably when real players are performing this. If anyone has experience writing this sort of thing, I would really appreciate any advice you'd have to offer. Also, I am happy to hear comments from anyone about this piece, whether they be about the orchestral writing, the special effects, or anything else. Thank you and enjoy!
  4. Sopran/Soprano: Anđela Todorović /Cello: Mateja Nikolić/Piano: Veljko Nenadić Composer: Veljko Nenadić 22.12.2018. Belgrade Philharmonic Hall, Serbia.
  5. These 2 pieces for Piano Trio were written for the Moscow Conservatory's 2018 International Winter School, along with the Etude-Tableau in B-flat minor, Op. 6. The musicians who performed it were Mikhail Akinfin and Alexandra Parfeneva, from the Piano Quartet performance, with of course myself at the piano. I might combine these 2 pieces (not conjoin them!), and possibly add more movements to make a full Piano Trio, with a possibly programmatic element to it. Here are the performances on Youtube: Nocturne in C major, Op. 5: Romance in E major: I hope you all enjoy. 🙂 Theo
  6. This piece is my first multi-movement composition, and was written in 2016-2017. It was, at the time, my largest completed completed composition, with a full performance lasting about 25 minutes. The piece was originally conceived as a piano concerto, and the now-first movement was initially going to be the slow movement, in a similar manner to the third movement of Brahms' Piano Concerto no. 2. However, I came across a composition competition called the Young Composers Challenge, or The Composium, and decided to turn it into a shorter chamber piece. The original concerto-version lasted over 15 minutes, and the maximum timing was 5 minutes. So, a lot was cut from the original concerto-version (which, I should mention, was not orchestrated or completed), but the results were just as satisfying, though the cropping of it was rather painful. The piece was first performed at a small chamber music festival for students, with myself at the piano, in 2016. I ended up actually winning a place in competition, and it was performed, again, with myself at the piano that same year. By that time, however, I was making more movements for the piece, and finally, the completed version was performed in Moscow, for the concert for the 2017 International Summer School of the Moscow Conservatory. So, that is the story of my Piano Quartet in B-flat major, Op. 3. The quartet is in 4 movements: Movement 1. - Moderato, quasi andante (B-flat major) Movement 2. - Intermezzo: Allegretto moderato (F major) Movement 3. - Andante (B-flat major) Movement 4. - Finale: Allegro Furioso (B-flat minor-major) The musicians in the Moscow performance are: Mikhail Akinfin - violin, Alexandra Zhelvakova - viola, Alexandra Parfeneva - Violoncello, and me as the pianist. I unfortunately do not know who the other performers in the Composium concert were. Here are the performances: I hope you all enjoy. 🙂 Theo
  7. Hi all, So, I've been away from this site for a few years - long enough that I find it has changed and my profile is completely empty! It's time to change that. In February, I had the opportunity to perform a recital of my own works, this trio among them. My colleagues and I decided afterwards that it would be worth the trouble to do a house recording of it. This is the result. My personal musical preferences lie squarely in the conservative German branch of the 19th century, and I've always believed that a composer should write the sort of music he or she likes to hear. That's what you can expect from this trio with respect to form, harmony, rhythm, and so forth. It's in four movements. The first movement is a traditional sonata-allegro with slow introduction. The second movement is a scherzo and trio. The third is a theme and variations, based on a melody I wrote when I was 13 or 14 (side note - NEVER throw away the ideas you compose when you're young!) The fourth movement is rondo-like arch form. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed performing it! I have decided against posting the score. I hate to have to take this stance, but as an essentially unknown composer, I am deeply reluctant to post my scores to an internet site that is open to the world when I know colleagues who have been victimized by thieves stealing their works and claiming them as their own. Even with a legally copyrighted work, it is stressful, time-consuming, and expensive to take these people to court. I apologize to those who would have liked to see it.
  8. This was my first chamber work, which I wrote when I was 9 or 10 years old. It was written for a concert of chamber music by various students at a music school. I later used the main theme in one of the variations of my Passacaglia Op. 1. Here is the performance on Youtube. The group playing is called the Fifth House Ensemble. I hope you all enjoy. 🙂 Theo
  9. I wrote this little piece while still composing the Piano Quartet, Op. 3. Actually, I was sort of taking a break from writing it, having just finished being part of a small chamber music festival for students, where the first movement of the quartet was premiered. The piece was written for a violinist friend of mine, named Sophia Molina. The piece had 2 performances, both of which Sophia and I played in. Here is one of the performances, the only one I have on my Youtube channel: I hope you all enjoy it. 🙂 Theo

  13. Hello, all! Here is a single movement work I wrote for string quartet. I entered this into a call for scores that a professional string quartet hosted. Out of it, I got this recording (along with 200 dollars)! Let me know what you think! Feedback always welcome!
  14. Hi everyone, Here's a short piece for piano trio I wrote over the summer. Let me know what you think and things I should keep in mind for future pieces. A clearer PDF score is attached below. Thanks! J Shu
  15. Hello everyone, this is the piece I newly composed, hope you like it
  16. Hello, friends! I recently joined this forum, and this is my first post here. I have been working on this piece for a little while now to use in my college application portfolios. I would love to get some feedback on it, if anyone is inclined to listen and look at it. I will be recording it next week, so anything you have to say would be great.
  17. hello, This is my new string quartet composition. Just listen, and share your opinion! Thanks! :)
  18. I thought it would be really cool to write a collaborative string quartet (2 violins, viola and cello). A few rules to follow: 1. I want to warn you that the score I upload (.xml format) is very likely going to be visually unappealing and may contain visual notation mistakes. I use a special notation program due to a disability (please do not ask me what this disability is, as it's information that is too personal to mention on the internet). Therefore, I cannot correct these mistakes myself. If anyone is willing to help me correct these mistakes, that would be awesome. 2. Any forum member may contribute as much as they want in any style, as long as we ensure smooth transitions between contributions. You can contribute as many times as you like. 3. I will decide when the composition is finished, but you are welcome to end it if you like. Collaborative String Quartet.xml
