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.
Hello fellow composers, I was recently afforded the opportunity to perform a recital of my own works and decided afterwards to record a couple of them in a home setting. This is a collection of relatively brief solo piano preludes. It's a rather unusual work for me, as I generally tend towards longer, more developed chamber music. These are more like independent, fleeting ideas. This collection moves chromatically from C through B, alternating between major and minor. The musical style would be right at home in the 19th century, which is the period of music that I most appreciate. My personal musical preferences definitely lie with the conservative branch of that period, and my writing reflects that. Unfortunately, I am not comfortable sharing the score. It's not that I don't trust the established members of this community, but rather that I don't trust making my scores available to anyone in the world at a time when the work has not been performed far enough afield to prove beyond a doubt that it is my work. After having a colleague be forced to go to court to deal with a music thief, I am not willing to endure the stress and expense of doing it as well. My apologies to those who would have liked to see it. If only we lived in a world where everyone was honest.
Hello. Posting some old works that was performed some years ago. Concerto nr. 36 in the late Italian baroque style, written to my better half! Sadly I lost the recording from the concert, so this recording is from a rehearsal. For me this second movement of this concerto is the most expressive slow movement I have written. I. Allegro II. Adagio III. Vivace (La danza dell'amore) Please tell me what you think! Performed by new baroque ensemble 2016.
