  1. This piece was begun while I was still studying in Prague. The instrumentation is a straight-forward ode to the Baroque-style of concerto writing, having a more intimate, chamber feel. Moreover, I wanted each of the movements to say both something of the country, as well as recount one of my own memories from my time there. Each movement is therefore a dedication to a particular figure in Czechoslovak history and they move in chronological order (beginning with its independence from the Austro-Hungarian Empire under Masaryk, c. 1918). The first movement recalls a November hike in the outskirts of Prague, where it is far more rural and moderately hilly. I was with a couple of friends and we walked the path until we ended up getting lost, having taken the wrong turn. The music reflects this by consistently ‘losing its place’ and becoming diverted: phrasing is often truncated, the rhythms hesitate in precision, and the oboe frequent reaches to it's higher register in swooning melodies. The piece in essence depicts the Bohemian woods, which are culturally very important. For this reason, I chose Masaryk – the first Czechoslovak president and a symbolic ‘father of the nation’— as the dedicatee for this movement. The second movement is for pacifist teacher Přemysl Pitter, who aided young Jewish, German, and Czech children who were prosecuted/abandoned during and after the Second World War. My professor – who was transfixed on American Quakers and pacifism – had a particular affinity for Pitter, and we visited his house in Žižkov. The piece is primarily tranquil, though the central section is spritely and dance-like. The final movement is dedicated to the first president following the fall of the one-party system in the Velvet Revolution, Václav Havel, who was a playwright. During the communist rule, he was imprisoned several times for his political activities and his writings (via Samizdat). The music is frantic and, at times, scattered, with bits of material struggling to shine through. In essence, sections of the music are ‘censored,’ and themes from all three movements are combined as the music continues.
  2. Here goes my new piece (inspired on Barroque Music) Instruments: Oboe Solo, Violin Solo, String Orchestra and Harpsichord if you liked, you can also hear:
  3. Hey, guys! I just finished work on the first movement of a new sonata, this time for oboe and piano; it was a quick two days. I was first planning a piano sonata, but I shifted my mind over to a duet like this instead, a form in which I enjoy writing the most. The sonata, I plan, will have three movements, and this is only the first. It has several main key areas/significant harmonies, and all of them are in mm. 30- 31. This is a piece with a story-without-words, with many motifs depicting the motions and movements of the eponymous frogs and of flowing and dripping water. While much of the music could have been conceived of in 6/8, the music finally transforms starting in the frog dance at m. 156, wherein first the meter changes into the easiest conceptualization of the original music, then it shifts from duple into triple (i.e. the oboe's introductory line), and finally back into compound duple as its final transformation, all the while taming the bombastic eccentricity of the previous material, as well as the shifting harmonic language and chromaticism. Let me know what you think! P.S. The type-facing is elementary and it will be adjusted in the final drafting process, when the following movements are done.

    Trio nº1

    I composed this trio(flute,oboe and bassoon) last year for a calls for score. I Hope you apreciate that! Unfortunatelly I don't have a live performance yet.
  5. 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.
  6. Instead of arranging a piece for a full band, I tried doing a slightly different style. Inspired by Adrian Quince, I had high woodwinds (oboe), low woodwinds (bassoon), saxophone, high brass (trumpet) and low brass (tuba). The ending still isn't completely final because I still am not sure what to do with it. Any feedback/suggestions? https://musescore.com/user/15379306/scores/3341871 small band piece.mid
  7. Alto Saxophone Concertino No.1 in f minor ‘’Batterij’’, Opus 14 Dear reader / listener, I composed this concertino on the 14th of July for a national composition competition in Holland. The piece is about my black-out, which I had last school year. The composition is originally written for members of the Jong Nederlands Blazers Ensemble (Young Dutch Wind Ensemble) and me as soloist: Alto saxophone; oboe; clarinet in B-flat; horn in F; bassoon. Feedback would be very nice, because I have not received much useful feedback from the judges at the competition. Kind regards, Maarten Bauer (16). Nota bene about the video: We had to practise the composition in less than fifteen minutes, so there are some mistakes. In my opinion it still sounds better than when it is played by a computer.
  8. Just a simple theme fit for village music. Not too good with flutes but I hope it was done well. The biggest challenge was going from the C major scale to the E min scale, thought it would sound good together maybe. Edit: I wanted to so badly have a counter melody to the flute using the Oboe but didn't really know the correct way to do it since to me, the flute left no room for a counter (or perhaps it did but I didn't know) I find counter melodies hard to do and may need some advice on that for future reference.
  9. Hey guys! So, I'm a little mentally exhausted -- I'm just after writing nine pieces in the past three days (which will all be uploaded soon.) This is my first true chamber sonata for oboe and piano, and I hope you guys enjoy. I really enjoy writing in this form, so let me know what you think and thanks for the help.
  10. I thought you guys might be interested in my new series! I'm creating 2-3 minute videos about writing for every member of the woodwind family. I also am more than happy to answer any questions that are posted on the video. If you're interested, here's the playlist:

  12. When I'm composing for full orchestra, I often find that I have trouble writing parts for the Woodwind section. These are some of my favorite instruments as far as their sound goes, but I just can't seem to write very "elaborate" or "high quality" sounding parts for them. Any tips or tricks would be appreciated. Thanks!
  13. Hi, as I understand glissandi on the oboe and english horn are nearly impossible, but I've also heard that they can be accomplished at least to a semitone by manipulating the embouchure. Is this true? Can it be done in both directions? Would these glissandi be possible on the english horn?
  14. Hello all! For those that don't know me, I am a high school senior, graduating in a couple of weeks, and I have nothing to practice over the summer before I go study composition at Lawrence Conservatory. This summer, I really want to improve my playing 10-fold, my plan is to double my practice time and to improve so much, I'll have a really strong start when I start school in the Fall. Just to give you a picture about where I am performance wise I was 1st chair oboe at District band I have also done numerous college auditions, and every school that required an instrumental audition, I got accepted to with the exception of the Cleveland Institute of Music, which I was waitlisted to. So, basically, I'm a strong oboist with a good tone who wants to play good music. To do that, I'm going to need your help. I love new music, I don't care what style it is, I just care that it is good. I have an array of pieces I want to record this summer, but I also want to add to that, 4-6 original compositions. Let me repeat that. 4-6 compositions. That's where you come in. Basically, I am asking you to write a 3-7 minute piece for Oboe with or without accompaniment (if w/out please stay on the shorter side, my endurance is not that great). You may do whatever you want with the composition, you can include multiphonics, altissimo (I can play up to a high A, I can probably go higher, but I've never tried). As far as difficulty, please keep in mind that I'm doing other things this summer, I'm playing with a Wind Ensemble, and possibly a symphony orchestra, along with 2 jobs. I can handle if it's difficult, just don't make it insane. Basically, if you know your oboe literature, I can handle Mozart and Vaughan Williams, but nothing like Corigliano, if that helps you understand a bit more. If you're not sure, just ask me, I'll be glad to help. So, as far as a deadline goes, how about June 25? and I would give results on July 1, and will give you all feedback, so everyone will know why they did or did not make it. Rules: must be between 3-7 minutes favor towards accompanied works, unaccompanied will be accepted, but they have to be 2-4 minutes accompaniment must be piano (nothing else) must be complete by June 25 ok, I'm really hoping I get some responses to this, I will do my best to give you guys the highest possible quality recordings, and if I end up performing solo at a recital (another thing I'm looking at), I will very likely play one of your pieces. I may not be a professional, but I definitely don't sound like a dying duck. I'm good friends with people from Interlochen, I've performed in just about anything, I can do this, and you can write this! So, don't let anything prevent you from submitting (what have you got to lose?) Go ahead and give it a try! Don't fail me my composition brethren!
