#1 YOUNG COMPOSERS MAGAZINE Hello fellow composers! Music is enrichment of life. We cannot imagine a life without music. Our passion is music and that is why we decided to start an interesting project: creating a magazine about music related themes. Our goal is to share our love for music. We proudly present the first edition of the Young Composers magazine. You will find various themes in this magazine. From the theoretical discussion of contemporary musical forms to a recipe of a favourite dish by a well-known composer. The magazine is linked with the internet forum Young Composers. All editors are member of this forum and most of us like to compose, professionally or as a hobbyist. Some articles will be therefore linked with the Young Composers forum. Furthermore, the links that are shared in the articles can all be found in a topic in the Young Composers magazine department on the forum. Every cover of the Young Compsosers magazine will have another composer's portrait. This time it is the maestro Johann Sebastian Bach. My admiration for Bach is immense, because his music seems to be timeless. Everybody has at least one Bach composition, which he or she likes. Above: Aria of the Goldberg Variations by Bach (BWV 988). This masterpiece helps me to fall asleep. I have listened to it for more than hundred times now and it never bores me. For me, that is the power of Bach. We hope that we can transmit our passion for music to you and hope to see you on the forum. Enjoy the reading! Maarten Bauer ~Chief-editor COLOPHON I would like to thank everybody of the staff for the incredible dedication. Without you this magazine would not exist! You deserve a very big applause!

Hello everybody, Would it not be fantastic if Young Composers had its own special Magazine composed by the creative members of the forum? Since a few weeks I have been thinking about this idea. I already made a few magazines with the free program called Jilster (https://www.jilster.com/). The advantage of this program is that I (as a chief editor) can give specific pages to other people so that many people can work on one single magazine. The program is very ergonomic: I learned the things I needed to know in one hour of experimenting. Because the idea is still quite vage, I decided to schelude the magazine. This link leads you to the magazine in which you can see the topics I would like to include. https://jil.st/YoungComposersMagazinePreview Before I begin to write for this magazine, I would like to know if you would appreciate it. Could it be an valuable addition to the forum?I would also like to know if some of you are interested to help me. If you want to write about a topic that is not mentioned in this megazine scheme, do not be disappointed. I can give you several pages on which you can write about what you want. Furthermore, if you are interested send me a private message. I am very enthousiast, but of course we all have to be! Please be honest. Maarten *I know that not everybody has all free time to spend on writing and laying out the articles (including me), so there will not be a deadline. It is something extra and it has no priority.
Alright. I have a 75% chance of getting a piece performed in two weeks (I'll tell you that story later). Anyhow, the place formally known as Kinkos has stated they can print on 12 x 18 - 35lbs (which will make my parts 9 x 12). MOLA prefers 10 x 13 parts; unfortunately, your's truly can not afford to that so I'll try this 9 x 12. (you have to order 13 x 20 paper and most places don't have a printer for that. You have to have it sent to the middle-of-nowhere for this to happen with about a two-week turnaround). Now 8.5 x 11- 20lb paper is really tacky for an orchestra. MOLA suggest 60lbs. Let's see if Kinkos can make this happen! Wish me luck! Musically Yours, Sir Wick
