  1. Hi guys, I've remastered and tweaked this with an extra bit on the end. Rhapsodic in form, with all subsequent melodies based on the opening. Hope it lifts your spirits https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OENrlkI5axk Many thanks.
  2. Here the first 47 bars of the first movement of my first symphony! Allegro.mp3 Open for feedback and suggestions!
  3. I wrote this little pice these days of quarantine....
  4. I've been working rather hard on this piece and have a full movement of a concerto, I hope you guys enjoy and any feedback is welcome.
  5. A second piece for trompa (French Horn) and orchestra.
  6. 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!
  7. A little piece I've been working on... I keep on exploring the orchestra.
  8. A new symphony! I completely understand if you do not have the time to listen to some random person's full length symphony. Therefore, I appreciate feedback of any sort, even if for just one movement. However, as the composer I do not recommend you listen to the finale before the rest of the symphony, as much of the finale's musical direction is drawn from the rest of the symphony. I have provided a full analysis of the work in the score provided. Please give as much criticism as you can (and try to reference measures in the work to give weight to your points, and so I can also see what you mean). As always, thank you very much for your time and I look forward to this becoming a better symphony!

  9. I have no idea what to call this, but this is a spawn of an idea that came to me recently and I'm hoping it turned out well. Lemme know what you guys think!
  10. I wrote these (and some more) just for fun and to learn....
  11. Here is the first movement of my Symphony No. 4 in D Major. I completed the entire symphony at the end of last year. Any feedback is welcome on this movement, particularly regarding harmony and orchestration!

  15. Hello! I just would like to have some feedback on this track I wrote. I wanted to represent a typical traffic jam situation in a very big city. The piece is written for a large woodwind ensemble, piano and percussions.
  16. About half a year ago I admitted to one of my friends: "I haven't composed a thing in a few months! It seems like I just don't have the time for it any more." he told me that I can make a short piece for piano, and I decided to add a twist, thinking to myself: 'I'm going to make a collection of pieces for two people and one piano!" It took a while (half a year apparently), but I now have a collection of seven original pieces for four hands! yey! Now you must be thinking "the hell does he want from me? I came here for an orchestral piece!" Ah! There's a second part for the story! A month ago I decided to experiment with one of the pieces, thinking: "This one sounds like it could fit as an opening to a video game, but it has to be more... orchestral!" I've never written a piece for a full orchestra and now the time has come. Here's what I ask from you, the reviewer (of course, these are just guidelines, you don't have to answer everything): 1. Criticize mainly the orchestration: *Things that made sense to me but wouldn't make sense in a performance (Instruments too quiet, too little of a time to switch between instruments, the Bassoon won't hear the bass well, etc.) *Things that are put in the wrong instrument ("Are you crazy? a Tuba can't make a trill in such a low register! You know what? a Tuba shouldn't make a trill at all!") *Things that are just not written the way I wrote them 2. Criticize it as a composition (I'll upload the original four hands pieces so you can have a look at a simpler version) *Is the melody too much of a cliche? ("That sounds a little like a mix between the Shire theme and a regular fanfare!" [I promise you I didn't have the Shire in mind, I just thought of it about an hour ago and now I'm scared that I'll have to start from scratch]) *Are the harmonies and scales too simple? *Is it too short? (because I've been told that it is, but doesn't really want to make it more than a cute and short fanfare, might change my mind though) *What about the rhythm? Too repetitive to the point it sounds like a loop and not like a fanfare? 3. Tell me whether you think it could fit in an adventure montage in a movie or as an opening for a computer game. 4. For those who are more familiar with my works (If there are any here)... do you recognize the references? Huge thanks in advance! That's the only thing I've been doing on my free time for a month now, would really appreciate some reviews! a Call for Adventure midi.mid
  17. Hey everyone, Here is the piece I composed this semester for my composition lessons at university. It's about 18 minutes long, so if you only want to listen to and review a small portion, that's totally fine. This piece is still under revisions, so any feedback is welcome. Thanks! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2Z780ZKZIY
  18. Star Wars belongs to our cultural heritage. The music is truly phenomenal! Written by John Williams, the man that plays in his own league. He is one of my biggest examples and a never ending inspiration source. How great it is then to attend a live performance of the International Symphony Orchestra of Lviv and the National Choir of Ukraine 'Dumka' playing his music (and from Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer, Mykola Lysenko, Ramin Djawadi and Vangelis). It was mindblowing! In this video I'll do a short analysis of what is happening on the stage during the Imperial March, Darth Vader's Theme. The music track that has been released in 1980! Hopefully you'll enjoy it! And that it inspires you to write (more) orchestral music for film. Cause maybe on one day ... your work might be performed on stage by a symphony orchestra and choir like this 😉 https://youtu.be/t2L7cB5nRro From a theoretical point of view this composition is also quite fascinating! I can talk about it for many hours. Did you know: During the march all of the pitched instruments playing (strings, horns, and timpani) are at or near the very bottom of their range. The result is a very dark color to the sound. Harmonically, it focuses on the dark sound of minor chords and presents distorted versions of what would otherwise be normal progressions (i–#iv–#v–i in G minor) Melodically, the theme is constantly moving in the downward direction Fascinating!
  19. I finally finished my new composition by the end of my summer holiday. The music is based on a few Japanese forest paintings I found online, I used some unusual harmonies and melodies which may remind you of some Japanese style music (plus some chromatic harmonies). Please have a listen
  20. I was wondering if anyone can recommend some songs with violin/viola solos along with an orchestra?
  21. Here is the first draft of a serenade that I have written recently for the following orchestra: 2 Flutes; Oboe da Caccia; 2 Clarinets; Horn in F; 2 Celestas; Violin I, II & III, Viola I & II; Violoncello and Double Bass. I tried to add some chromaticism into the harmony to richen the tonal landscape throughout the different ideas. I might enter this into a competition - what do you guys think?
  22. I believe this is one of my most emotional composition, with a bit of asian taste in it. I was inspired by a few sea paintings I saw in the net. Hope you guys enjoy it ! (and suggestions as usual plss 🙂
  23. Hi everyone, I've been composing music for 3,5 years, but it was not until recently I decided to start uploading my music to the internet. I've never received any musical education, I had to educate myself. The first piece I decided to upload is the "Sonata for Viola and Orchestra". Please note, that even though it says sonata in the title, I wasn't sticking to any particular composition form. I would appreciate any feedback you can give me on both my orchestration and composition and your thoughts in general. For the story behind the piece, you can check the description of the video attached here. My idea behind this composition was as follows: The motif that represents life gets introduced in the first part of the composition in a major key (0:00-0:56). Then the piece switches to a minor key and a "loss" motif start playing by a solo viola, representing the losses during the war. After the second repetition of the motif (1:00-2:24), the life motif comes back now in a minor key representing that life has changed for the worse (2:24-3:15). The loss motif is then repeated again and the piece concludes on an unstable minor add9 chord to show the uncertainty of the situation (3:15-4:30). The piece: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4jGyzvWlmY&lc=z221wrhqgxznjvopt04t1aokgbir4xpajzdb5agsljhlrk0h00410 The score is attached here Edit: Uploaded the piece here as well. For the history behind it, you should still check the link Edit 2: Replaced the previous pdf file with the new one, since I found some mistakes (had incorrect crescendo markings around bars 10-11)
  24. This is my first ever 'proper' piece for orchestra. It was going to be performed by a student orchestra back home, but the conductor has postponed on me twice already and I suspect it might not ever get played, which is a shame. It started off with the initial melody, which appeared in my head one day and stayed there for a few weeks until I finally got it down on the score. I always intended the piece to start off light and get darker as the piece progressed, although I never had any idea what the actual structure was going to be until I was almost at the end. In a way, the piece is kind of representative of aspects of my personality. This piece features a lot of the harmonic and colour-related ideas that I've been playing around with during this last year of my master's degree. It was also my first ever serious attempt at writing for a string section, which turned out to be harder than I thought - a lot of the feedback I got from my tutor as I was writing this piece was on how low I was writing the violins and violas, because I think I was subconsciously treating them like winds. I think I managed to fix a lot of those issues by the end though. Overall, writing for orchestra isn't something that appeals to me a lot right now, probably because I'm just not used to it, but that might change as my career (hopefully) progresses.
