  2. Hello! Here is my newest composition. I wanted to try a very different approach than what I normally do in my composing process. I made a sketch of material and let two saxophonists play this material in very free ways. When they submitted their recordings the actual composing started with very static material since I cannot change the recorded material that much. It was an exercise in structure and arch building, but I also see it as a proper composition. I want to create an additive film to accompany the composition. Do you have any ideas for themes, scenes? I would love
  3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54ybKehseRc hello . im korean student ( sax player ) I went to travel Europe last month , shoot a video sax playing on the castle. I'm practicing in Korea and tell me what you hear How are you listening? good ? or not good? im wondering. enjoy and please reply ! thank you !
  4. Hi! I am working on a piece for saxophone and piano. Saxophone part is not a problem, but it would be great if someone dropped an eye on the piano part. I have too little knowledge of what is correct as in for space between chords (so they wouldn't be spaced too far from each other), usual piano patterns, etc. Basically the question is-can it be played? Sheet music and mp3 example in attachment. Thank you beforehand!
  5. Here is piece for alto saxophone and piano that I wrote to play with my sister. Any feedback would be appreciated!
  6. As an experiment, I wanted to compose a piece for soprano saxophone, as my friend plays the instrument. It begins in a drifting, dream-like state with the strings providing a variety of colors. From the conclusion of the dream-state, an idea in the saxophone is presented. In a story type manner, this faster theme is progressed until it devolves back into the dense strings again with the initial iota being reiterated. This becomes an intense outburst at full volume until it ends quietly. The music begins again, replicating the three-movements of a concerto on a miniature scale, rein
  7. A small concerto (concertino) in a movement. It has a classical style mixed with a "romantic orchestration" It was composed back in 2015 for a 2016 premiere with the High school Concert Band from Escuela Libre de Musica The composition has some novice errors hehe, also I'm conducing, so I apologize for the dancing. I included the audio .midi and the premiere back in 2016 with the Escuela Libre de Musica Concert Band and Angel Cuyar as soloist. As always, feedback is welcomed!
  8. hi, I'm new here in this forum and that's my first publish here. This piece is called "Take it Easy ". it's electronic chill music with piano and saxophone. Tell me what do you think!
  9. Hello composers! This will be the place where I will share one classical composition including saxophones per week. The videos are not mine! As a saxophonist, I notice that still many composers do not use the saxophone in classical music. The most important reason for this is because they do not know how to apply the instrument. I often get the question if I could give some study advices for saxophone writing. My answer is always that one has to listen and study the works of our predecessors. This topic is meant to inspire and stimulate composers to write more music for
  10. Hello! Here is my latest composition with a theme, on which I have always wanted to write music: DINOSAURS! This short one-movement sonata is composed for alto saxophone and piano. I will perform this piece for the pre-study composition on alto saxophone accompanied by a pianist. The sonata is kind of programmatic: The setting is a restful valley full of dinosaurs (including tryceratops). Baby dinosaurs are playing and having fun, but then the dinosaurs smell danger. There is panic, because the dinosaurs are not sure where the predators will come from, they onl
  11. Hey everyone! Can you please check out my new composition? Sheet music still needs some clean up, adding letters etc. What I'm most concerned about is piano part. What do you think about it? Also, maybe there is someone who would like to test this out? Any feedback appreciated! Thank you!
  12. Hello everybody, You may have already seen the two other topics about this quartet. One is about the sketch, which I had to make for the selection rounds of the composition competition. The other one was about how to create a climax and how to continue and finish the piece. Finally, I have finished the piece and to be honest I hate it. I have heard it so many times and it was terribly hard to finish the piece and include a climax. @Luis Hernández I hope that there are more vertical lines and there is a clear climax. The piece is about Europides' Medea. More information in the PDF
  13. Hi I didn't want to bother in the Saxophone Repertoire with this. I've been studying a little the saxophone family, and following @Maarten Bauer's advice, I wrote this only to practice. Because I always have doubts. Bars are lacking. The intention is to be played freely. I can put the bars, but perhaps it's a mess. Double sharps or flats, and Eb# or B# have been avoided. That is why there are F - F# and C - C#..., is this better? The piece uses the double harmonic scale and Messiaen's 4th mode. If I respected the scale, I would use E#, B#, etc... The notation is t
  14. Hello everybody, This was my first saxophone quartet that I composed one and a half year ago. . . (Opus 8). When I composed it, I was into composing for max. four months. I There are mistakes everywhere and when I wrote this I did not understand how to modulate (LOL), so there are quite subite transitions to other keys. I thought it would be fun for you to see how I am developed in one and a half year. The Mozart and Haydn influences are evident. I find this piece now uggly, but still I think at some places the music is pretty nice. The uggliest parts in my opinion are the endle
  15. So I have a few saxophonist friends, and I got the idea to write a sax quartet. I sent each movement to one of these friends after I wrote it to check the parts, and she told me it all looked pretty good, with a few caveats (like how playing constant fast staccato quavers can get tiring in the third movement - so I put some tenutos in). The first movement, 'Prelude', grew entirely out of the first bar, which I just wrote without thinking and then really liked. It has some complex syncopations but my friend says the rhythms look fun and not too difficult. The second movement, 'Fugu
  16. Hello everybody, I have won a composition competition with my saxophone sketch, which I already posted on the forum, and I can now finish my piece. I really need your help / suggestions / feedback! I will share my worries about the music in points, so that you can answer and discuss these. Extra information: The piece must be around 5 minutes long. The other post with the sketch can be foudn here: http://www.youngcomposers.com/t34939/sketch-saxophone-quartet/ The music ''ends'' at m.88. From m.88 there are sketches: Mm.90 - 97: Possible climax? Do y
  17. Hi everybody, I am writing a piece for a composition competition in Holland. The piece is to be written for a Dutch professional saxophone quartet. They firstly want to have a sketch of the piece that takes no longer than one minute. I called the piece Medea. Medea is a Greek witch in the story called Medea by Euripides. In class we were studying the Latin translation of the tragedy and in my opinion it is very impressive. In the part we have read Medea was furious with everybody she knows. In the Messiaen masterclass I learned a new composing method, which I wanted to apply. I
  18. This is my first ever composition for the duo of Alto Saxophone and (French) Horn in F. I had composed a soliloquy for Alto Saxophone around 3.5 years ago. I had also composed a solo for Horn in F more than 5 years ago. These "Three Sententiae for Saxophone and Horn, Op. 289" are composed in response to a call for pieces for this ensemble. I found the combination a rather challenging one to compose for. I include a title page as well as a description of the 'sententia' for those who are unfamiliar with it. The score is the transposing score, the actual pitches sounding a major sixth lower than
  19. 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
  20. Hi all, I have (finally) completed my Quartet for Piano and Winds. I have completed the first and second movement in August, but I was not able to compose a third movement, until last week. When I listened to Mozart's Quintet for Piano and Winds, K.452. I decided to compose a Quartet, which could be played by my friends and me. This is the reason why it is written for Bb Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, F Horn and Piano. I have tried to compose the third movement in the same style as the other two movements. Feedback and sharing your opinions would make me very happy! Enjoy!
  21. Hi, I have uploaded this piece before and I have included feedback, I received, in the first and second melody Adagietto. The first melody has already been posted. The original description: For my audition for pre-study at the conservatory with classical saxophone I played the Cinq Danses Exotiques by Jean Françaix. I fell in love with his music. On account of Françaix' music I composed 3 Melodies for Alto Saxophone and Piano, Opus 25 (Dutch: Drie Melodieën voor Altsaxofoon en Piano) today. Feedback and sharing your opinions would make me very happy! Stay tuned for

  23. Hi all, Since this year I am doing the pre-study of the conservatory. For the people who do not know yet: I play alto (and soprano) saxophone (classical). I met a hornist of the same age and we can get along with each other very well. We decided to form a duo. Until now I have transcripted (or transposed at sight) all our music (Mozart Horn Duets, Bach Inventions, Otto Nicolai duets etc.). The problem is that, although saxophone works ''fine'' replacing a horn, it is not comfortable to play music that is not originally written for this special duo. My question is if you know so
  24. First of all; best wishes for 2017! For my audition for pre-study at the conservatory with classical saxophone I played the Cinq Danses Exotiques by Jean Françaix. I fell in love with his music. On account of Françaix' music I composed 3 Melodies for Alto Saxophone and Piano, Opus 25 (Dutch: Drie Melodieën voor Altsaxofoon en Piano) today. Feedback and sharing your opinions would make me very happy! Kind regards, Maarten Bauer
