    Written for a friend; I'm excited to be able to finally rehearse and perform it soon!
  4. Brian Boru - Overture

    Hello all, This is the overture to the Brian Boru cantata I posted the rest of (so far) on Choral & Vocal. As I realise posting 40-ish minutes of music in one go is rather off-putting, especially since I'm not very active on YC myself, let's take things progressively. Further informations on the subject of the cantata itself can be found in my other post, however I doubt you'll really need any as this is purely instrumental. Any kind of comments is welcome, as this is my first major orchestral work. Cheers, Marc
  5. This is a concert overture I came up with extremely quickly over the past week or so, based off of themes I rejected for a larger project I'm being a bit more picky about. It's mostly in the classical or early Romantic style and follows sonata form pretty closely, with a repeated exposition, a development, and an altered recapitulation. Thanks for listening!Concert Overture in Bb Major.pdfConcert Overture in Bb Major.pdfConcert Overture in Bb Major.pdfConcert Overture in Bb Major.pdf
  6. I wrote this a few years ago and I still think it's one of my best works. I initially planned on writing a symphony, but I ran into writers block during the 2nd movement and decided to just release movement 1 as a standalone overture. (I eventually did complete a full 4-movement symphony a few months ago, but not based at all on this material, nor in the same key.)
  7. King Lear Overture in C minor

    Hello all! This is my entry for the summer competition based on a work by Shakespeare. I connected the most with his tragedy King Lear, and so I wrote a large orchestral piece about it, with various moments from the play annotated (corresponding to the music). Enjoy!
  8. Trafalgar Overture in B major

    Here is a re-upload of my overture to the Battle of Trafalgar, which was also inspired by my recent trip to the United Kingdom and the sight of Trafalgar Square in London. Let me know what you think!
  9. A concert overture I just recently finished about Snowdonia National Park, Wales (Eryri in Welsh), which I recently visited. Let me know what you think!
  10. I think I'll just leave this right here... Very little is known of Juan Marcolini (b. 1730s, fl. 1760-70), the composer of this little gem - an overture to a zarzuela from around 1760 - and more is the pity for it. Ostensibly he was Spanish, but with a surname like Marcolini, I'd be willing to bet he or one of his ancestors was Italian. The title, "La dicha en la disgracia y la vida campestre," translates roughly "Bliss in disgrace and counry life" - which only whets my appetite for more. I learnt a thing or two listening to this piece, to say nothing of marveling at its quality, and just enjoying it. Hope y'all will get a kick out it. Here it is in a particularly tasty performance by Concerto Koln.
