    Short organ fantasy

    This is a short organistic fantasy with many tensions. I hope it can be interesting. https://soundcloud.com/roberto-zini-84021232/organistica-tensione-1

    Pastel in B minor - Blue Portrait

    Here I have a short piano piece that I have termed as a 'pastel,' a term I find to fit well (especially with the heavy sustain and blending used throughout). I have had a particularly difficult time composing solo piano music; and, for this project, I recorded myself improvising. I was happy with the end product, so I transcribed the piece from the audio. Before recording, I had a general idea that I wanted to depict a color, so, to begin, I merely envisioned the color blue, and I played. Like my recent projects, I found a painting by Georgia O'Keeffe -- "Blue, Black, and Grey" (included in the score) -- that I think matches the music well, and that I feel coincides well with my original thought process. Being improvised, it is very much reminiscent of "stream-of-consciousness;" though, while I played I attempted, at least, to follow different melodic, harmonic, and otherwise motivic fragments in mind. Nonetheless, I am interested to hear your thoughts on a relatively unformed area of my compositions. The audio I included is my improvised session, from where the audio was transcribed, and I wanted (as well as I could) to preserve the liberative quality by use of abundant time signature changes, which almost add a moment of pause for the performer (as though they were composing themselves). My ultimate goal is to complete a set of similar pieces, all on my perceptions of different colors.

    Aquarelle for Flute & Piano - "Sky Study"

    Here is a short piece for flute and piano entitled “aquarelle,” a French term used for watercolor paintings. The inspiration for the term came from Frederick Delius (a favorite composer of mine), who used it for two of his chamber pieces. For me, the term helped me better envision what I intended to depict – a study of the sky (which itself was derived by the watercolor that I paired with the music by J. M. W. Turner). The piece is divided into three clear sections – the first and last being very similar – depicting the passage from open sky to clouds back to the open sky above the clouds. In the first section, the piano has a brief introduction, which is meant to flow like a gentle breeze, before the flute sets a gentle melody on top of it. The second section is a view of the clouds, which come and go like giants, flowing from one to the other; at the end of this section, grace-note figures in the flute part are introduced to resemble the flapping of a birds’ wings fighting through the clouds. The final section is back to the soaring melodies from the first section, now with the grace-note figures as a constant image. The piece ends abruptly with the flute, just how gust of wind might blow at full force only to die away suddenly. Like all my recent chamber works, I am going to try to obtain a recording of this work. Wish me luck, and I appreciate any comments, just as usual!

    Short Quintet Piece

    Audio might not be exactly the same as the notes. If you have the time for that, please look over the notes. I'm about to hand this piece to the quintet's administrator and wanted to hear another musician's opinions before I do so. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Of Fire an Ice

    Of Fire and Ice.mp3 A short piece that I wrote for a Roleplay I was taking part in a while back meant to capture the two personalities of a fire mage and an Ice mage as they worked and lived together. This piece starts off with only a piano introduction before giving way to the orchestra in bar 9. From there it goes through a couple theme variations before ending back with the original theme. It is approximately 2:31 long, and stays in the key of B Major. There is a tempo change in bar 15, and again back to the original tempo in measure 67. It is the shortest piece that I have completed, and will be found on the album, "Dust of the Past" when I release it as soon as I'm finished writing and mastering the final track that will be on it.
  7. Hello, This is my lattest piano work, composed in january. I wanted write an animated piece, inspired by popular music of Portugal, so it is very tonal probably one of the most tonal pieces I made. I would apreciate very much your feedback and I apologise for the lack of dynamics Thank you!
  8. I arranged this (with permission) from a piece a friend of mine wrote for solo piano.

    Fairy Lights

    Hi This is a short piano piece that I wrote a few months ago. MP3 file coming as soon as I can find a spare CD to convert the wav file into an MP3! Sorry about my old technology.
  10. A small prelude written for my English class - background music for a model based on the setting from A. Huxley's "Brave New World". In this composition, I tried to reproduce the cheap and ignorant, grotesque cheerfulness of Huxley's bizarre world of artificiality. Also, I thought that the concept of all-seeing eye would fit the dystopian nightmare. The pillar of this prelude is my loose improvisation in A major - one of the most happy and cheery keys, in my opinion. Thank you for listening!

    Wind Quintet Challenge

    Hello all, this is the first time I'm attempting a challenge, so if I'm doing something wrong or not allowed, just let me know, I rarely go here :( So, I'm giving composition lessons to a friend of mine, who is a fantastic pianist, and in an effort to try to get him off the piano, and to teach him orchestration, I challenged him to write a wind quintet, by hand, and he must start full score. So, I'm gonna give you this same challenge. Rules: -write a short piece for Wind Quintet (under 4 minutes, for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon and Horn, no doubling to alto flute or anything like that) -you cannot just write for piano then expand it to wind quintet, you must start with full score Points: Orchestration (40 points): How well did you use each of the instruments? How successful were you in using the instruments to create the voice of the piece? Play-ability (35 points): Is it playable? If this were to be sight-read by an actual quintet, how successful would it be? Basically, the easier the better, you want many people to be able to perform this Presentation (10 points): This is too often overlooked, if they can't read it, they can't play it Musicality (15 points): How successful were you in using Melody, Harmony, Rhythm, Form, Dynamics, etc. to create a coherent, interesting, and unique piece? I will give you all the same amount of time I gave my student, around 2 weeks. Remember, it's supposed to be short. If no one can turn it in by the deadline, I'll extend it, but just know that my student, who started composing just this year and is writing his FIRST piece without piano can do it, so don't lose faith! Deadline: June 1 This challenge is aimed towards composers who started off on piano and feels that they are too dependent on their piano skills. This is for those who wish to improve their orchestration skills and to compose from the viewpoint of a composer, rather than a pianist (if that makes sense). I would be fine with judging this piece, but if anyone else wants to, that would be perfect! (Austenite? Sojar Voglar?) Good luck! I hope this challenge will be an excellent opportunity to improve your orchestration skills, as much as it is to improve my teaching skills, I am going to college for music education along with composition so this is a good exercise for me too :) Finally, we get to the most important part, the prize :D I am an All-State level Oboist, and I am now a member of the Oboe studio at Lawrence Conservatory (starting next year, woot!) I will commission the winner to write a piece for solo oboe (and maybe w/ piano accompaniment, although that's kinda against the point of this competition XD) and I will record it to the best quality I can get. I am looking into opportunities to perform over the summer at recitals or competitions, if I find one, I will include your piece in it, basically, I will try my darnest to perform your piece in front of a live audience. ok, I think that's everything, ready, set.... COMPOSE!
