    Moments

    I was busy working on a project for Euphonium when I got the ideas for this piece. Over the last few days, a week really, I've added and changed stuff. The work slowly expanded from there. When I got the idea, I thought about doing a sonata based on it -but, as my composition advanced, I decided a one movement work would suffice. The form is pretty straightforward -so I won't bore you with the details. I can, however, say I'm happy with this draft of it. The language is very intimate and, I'm sure some would note, there's a sense of doom and resignation in the piece (largely due to my stressing over the coronavirus and it's potential impact on my family). But, in the end, the show must go on -and life itself will ultimately return to some sense of normalcy. At any rate, I hope you all enjoy this.
  6. I wanted to build a bit on the concept of the sententia -as the short form was created by @luderart. Thus, I decided to turn towards my solace: the piano. Writing for piano, idk, seems to open me up more to the possibilities within thematic/motivic material. Not sure why... it just does. The third sententiae uses the opening motif from @maestrowick's The Vivid Dawn. Anyways, each of these 'sententia' are no more than 12 measures. I chose twelve due to symmetry. That allows 6 measures for each segment of the idea to expand and contract (allow for some motivic development) while at the same time keeping the unique nature of the form intact. Hopefully these succeeded in that task.
  7. My hand at a relatively short miniature form created by another member on this forum @luderart I'll be adding some more here as I develop more confidence in writing these type of pieces. So far, this was an enjoyable exercise in brevity. Love it.
  8. There's a bit of a difference between this sonata and my previous two. For starters, this is probably a more serious attempt at the genre. I've never been a good person to describe my works in non-abstract terms. It is safe to note, though, that various parts of the piece explore septal and quintal harmony as well as a juxtaposition of whole tone tonality amid heavy chromaticism. That said, as I mentioned above, this work definitely seems like a strong development in my overall compositional ability. I'm not sure if there is a bit of maturation occurring or what -I'd be interested in everyone's thoughts! Hope you enjoy!
  9. Time is eternal. As sentient beings, we often fail to understand that despite the eternal nature of time, we -ourselves- aren't. At some point, our lights will extinguish -our lives will come to an end. This is scored for a chamber orchestra of one of each woodwinds (1.1.1.1), brass (1.1.1.1), vibraphone, timpani, and strings. Compositionally, this is an abridged sonata form. The exposition lasts for roughly the first minute, the development section lasts most of the work. The recapitulation was shortened to just a restatement of one theme (with textural variation) with coda. I'd love to have some comments regarding the orchestration -as that's still an area I'm trying to strengthen. Hope you enjoy!
  10. Piano Sonata 1 by Florian.pdfPiano Sonata 1 by Florian.mp3 Hello everyone, I am new to this community and looking forward to engage with everyone in sharing our compositions. This is the first piano sonata I have just completed. It is not in the traditional sonata form, but I tried to implement Theme A and B in different places and cast them under different lights. I especially like the Largo (3rd movement). Any sort of feedback would be highly appreciated! 🙂 Thank you for listening.
  11. Sometimes inspiration comes from different places: a car passing by in front of you, leaves rustling in the wind, the username of a member of an online forum, or simply... it just is. My first sonata was inspired by one of these three things. Ironically, as long as I've been composing, this is my first... complete (well, somewhat, I'll probably renovate some of the movements later) piano sonata. I. Allegretto Grazioso: The entire sonata rests on the motif found in the bass. 5 simple notes. The motif in this movement is treated to development in a type of hybridized sonata form. II. Adagio Sostenuto: This is one of the movements that I'll probably strengthen later. The form is basic ABA'. I wanted the A section to have a solemn quality to it. Resignation. The middle section introduces some new material -but again is heavily resting on the 5 note motif found in the first movement. III. Presto - Andante con moto: The five note motif becomes the basis of the scalar material utilized in the first half of this movement. Despite being a tad basic, it provided some interesting sonorities -particularly with the infusion of chromaticism. The second half of this movement features snapshots of material utilized in the previous two movements (for the sake of maintaining cohesion throughout the piece). All in all, I'm fairly satisfied with this work. I'll most likely update the second movement -and the second half of the third. Hope you all enjoy!
  12. So this is the first draft of an orchestral piece I'm working on for a submission. The name is just a working title. Some trouble spots: 1. I'm not a brass player at all -thus, I don't feel comfortable writing for brass (save the solo instrument, which I'm fine on). 2. Orchestration was not my strong suit in University -at least not in terms of full orchestra. Tips on how to handle the brass choir and woodwinds would be especially helpful. I'll be updating the wind parts here in a day or two once I figure out which contrapuntal lines I want them focus on leading up to the final climax. I'm also looking at expanding the material at the very end for the full orchestra -and playing with the interval in the 1st violin (as that is the main motif of the entire work). Hope you enjoy this draft -it's probably going to be changed.

    Etude

    The idea behind the first part of this movement is the growth of material from one note to its full statement. The clarinet, trumpet, violin, vibraphone, and trombone all play there own material treated in this manner. Each statement introduces a new note to their material. The bassoon and bass provide a sonic backdrop to this unravelling. I plan on expanding on this idea in other works -this was a fun idea to work on. Hope you enjoy.
  14. I started this quintet with the intention of entering this into a competition -so, I've been working pretty intently on it (to the point that it's all I think about). Here are the first 2 movements: 1. Andante: The first movement serves as a sort of introductory movement. The movement utilizes the short two bar theme presented in the opening (this theme also permeates large portions of the work as a whole). The theme is presented in all voices, leading to the establishment of a 'hopefully' hypnotic pattern -through which I play with the theme and introduce contrapuntal material. The structure is ABA'. 2. Allegro Con Fuoco: This is the movement so far that I've spent the most time on -and this is revision number 4. The opening two bars introduce an ostinato pattern that is taken up by ALL instruments within the quintet. This movement is meant to be faster than what I have set. I've slowed it down to give more attention to detail. 3. Adagio Semplice: To compliment the 2nd movement -and in stark contrast texturally- this movement is more of a mediation and prayer-like movement. The movement is slow and contemplative. At any rate, I'll post the final 2 movements once I've finished them. Hope you all enjoy these experiments.
  15. This piece doesn't really expand on the idea of the episode much more than the last one -instead, I develop more attention to the material within the overall structure. Sorry for the rendering, I think the sffz destroyed my speakers!!!
  16. In this piece, I've taken the ideas I had behind the formal structure of my earlier upload, Episode #1, and I've changed it up a bit (largely listening to the critiques that work garnered). I've never been good describing my ideas in detail -long standing trait. Much like Episode #1, this work takes the basic Rondo structure and expands upon it. When I originally thought of the idea for an episodic (rondo-like) formal structure, my original goal was to intersperse the A sections with heavily contrapuntal material (B, C, and D sections all being fugal in nature). While I still may do a work like this in the future, I think that -for now- I'm trying to find a way to make this type of structure work for the language that I use in my works. The score is a lot nicer (thank you MUSESCORE!)
  17. Closer to the finished product. This piece is intended as a submission for a music festival -so, I'm trying to make sure it's as close to perfect as possible. I've expanded the second entrance of the slow section -playing around with the ascending chromatic scale alongside a 4 note motive. This work is a bit personal to me in that it is a reflection on life, death, and my own experience of the two (under the lense of bipolar disorder). Hope you enjoy!
  18. Prelude III: This prelude is more of a meditation, similar to prelude 1 -however, this is non-serial. The basis is the left hand arpeggiation pattern. Hope you enjoy! Prelude IV: This prelude, comprised of only 4 notes, is a theme and set of variations on the opening 2 bars. I tried to keep interest. Still tinkering with musescore -so some of the articulation marks at the ending are incomplete. I'll add those later. Hope you enjoy!
  19. While working on this piano concerto, I have a lot of material that I'm leaving out -and have decided to use in smaller works (particularly for the purpose of keeping clarity in my material for the concerto). This work uses a tone row built upon intervals of the 4th. The opening bar, which creates a ritornello throughout the work, is the full row. Some notes about the compositional processes I used in this piece: 1. The form could be considered a rondo of sorts. The ritornello passage is labeled E. This returns after each 'episode' labelled C. I chose to keep this material identical. I may at a later date change the last entrance of the ritornello (mirroring it into the retrograde so that it ends on the note the piece begins). 2. The various episodes tinker with aspects of counterpoint (stretto, imitation, invertible counterpoint). The first episode superimposes rhythmic variants of the thematic material creating a rich texture. The second episode takes this type of superimposition and thins it out a little bit (leaving the superimposition to only two voices, while the remainder of the material is condensed into the chords seen in the left hand). NOTE: The second episode does NOT use the full tone row at all -at least not in order. The third episode plays around with invertible counterpoint and imitation, with a twist. The final episode -nearly devoid of counterpoint- is more intended on providing material to close out the piece. Hope you enjoy. I'll be cleaning up the score here in a few weeks once I get my new laptop set up!
  20. This is one of my all time favorite pieces by Gubaidulina. I tend to think of this piece as a good example of how unique and eclectic the composer's voice is in our own time. Gubaidulina takes traditional ideas of the concerto and adapts them to the more modern ideals relevant in our own day. An amazing work. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I have.
  21. There's so much to be said -with sometimes not enough time to say it. The same is true of music. So many ideas, and yet... we're left with so much longing after each piece. This is the idea behind this work. The ideas are pretty basic. There's some dabbling in serialism, free atonalism, combining tonal systems with serial rows, and a little more. NOTE: The scores aren't that well done. I'm using Flat (a free notation software) since I can't install Finale or Sibelius to my chrome book -and I am moving the pieces from paper to there. I'll be updating the scores once my new laptop arrives and I can get Sib installed again. Until then, I've done my best in adapting to Flat. It's not a bad notation software (though the midi sucks). My apologies! Hope you enjoy!
  22. I've noticed there aren't many pieces representing more modern musical styles -so I'll add one of my newer works. This is part of a larger series of smaller piano works (Images). I apologize about the score, I used 'Flat' to input it from my manuscript and still am not used to it. Hope you enjoy!
  23. My latest composition, a piano miniature in G. With some chord progressions i ,,walked'' through some few other tonalities.
  24. A short piece intended for a competition but not submitted because of time and other constraints (at least 4 movements were needed). EDIT: I should mention that all movements had to open with common thematic material. In this piece that material lasts the first 12 seconds. Lasts 1 minute. I'm told by a pro who looked through it last night that it would need at least a quartet player to perform it. It should keep any cellist on their toes.
  25. Hey there, Here is another piece which I have been working on this semester! I really need to come up with a fun title, so if anyone has any ideas, please share! Also, I am happy to hear any comments on this work. It is in four movements, and I hope that you enjoy each of them (my personal favorite is the third one - 'Largo').
