  1. This is my "Elegy for String Orchestra Op. 334 'For the Victims of the Beirut Port Blast (August 4, 2020)'". The Beirut Port Blast was a great explosion - one of the largest non-nuclear explosions in history - that destroyed much of Beirut and killed more than 200 people, injured more than 6,000 people and left 300,000 people homeless, and of course left all other residents of Beirut shaken. I composed this "Elegy for String Orchestra" for all of those victims. May the memory of the dead be blessed, may the injured recover, may the homeless recover their homes, and may the shaken survivors and
  2. Overture for String Orchestra Official - Flow 2.mp3 Overture for String Orchestra Official - Flow 3.mp3 01 - Full score - Overture for String Orchestra (1).pdf This is a work-in-progress for my youth chamber orchestra that I started in March 2020, and I envision it being between six and eight minutes long. The file titled "Flow 2" is the beginning of the work, joyful and energetic, and the one titled "Flow 3" is a heartfelt violin solo meant to come near the end. I have also attached the score. I have become stuck with this Overture, and am unsure what to do after that brief recap of
  3. An Agnus Dei in Eb minor. The skill required for the solo soprano is really high as there are sustained high notes and chromatic melodic lines, main harmony is suggested by the string orchestra. Hope you all enjoy this piece 🙂
  4. Hello everybody! This is my latest piece, which was inspired by composers such as Arvo Pärt, Francis Poulenc and Samuel Barber. It was also a study into the use of artificial harmonics and textures. It's also important to note that the harmonics won't sound that clear in real life. However, I structured the piece so that the first parts of the music won't require clarity of the individual lines. The last third of the piece has almost no harmonics so that It becomes more "meaty". Anyways, I hope you all enjoy it, and as always, feedback is greatly appreciated!
  5. A peaceful piece for string orchestra. With long sustained chords and interesting harmonies. Hope you all enjoy it 🙂
  6. The first (attempted) Symphony, written by the young composer, Drake King.
  7. This is probably one of my favorite works that I’ve composed. It has some fun rhythms within the 5/4 meter, which plays into the folk like nature of the piece. I’m curious as to what story you guys come up with to go along with this work-I always like to have a storyline or plot to go with every compositions I write. HAPPY LISTENING!
  8. Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum but i'm hoping i can get some much needed help. I recently started working on my very first musical composition and it has multiple sections. The "B" section is a Waltz that preferably needs to be in E Minor. I've never written a Waltz or Classical music in general. so it would be much appreciated if i could have some ideas on how to take it. Thanks, Weston
  9. A rough draft of something I wrote a while ago and never finished. As someone who has only professionally wrote for wind orchestras, and as someone who has never played a string instrument other than guitar, any and all criticism is welcome
  10. These are my "Two Sententiae for String Orchestra, Op. 309". It is rarely that I compose for orchestra. The last composition, a "Concertino for Classical Guitar and String Orchestra", was composed back in late 2015. I had shared it here almost two years ago. Here is its link: https://www.youngcomposers.com/t33864/concertino-for-classical-guitar-and-string-orchestra/
  11. This is my first string orchestra piece that I have attempted (also for double string orchestra), and I finished it after two weeks. This can be played by one or two orchestras, and I might have this piece played by my school's string orchestra. Almost the entire piece is played in legato. My favorite part of this entire piece is Section I. Here's a sentence of what I feel from this piece: A flow of swirls and magic fill me with warmth, love, relaxation, passion, and a desire to gaze at the grand night sky with its stars... I used works from certain composers like Ralph Vaughan Willi
  12.

  13. The_Fox_and_the_Rabbit_Score.pdf The_Fox_and_the_Rabbit_Story_and_Notes.pdf musicstory.mp3 Hey guys, been a while since I posted a piece here (have some stuff in the works but this is the first thing I've finished recently). This is my submission to the Winter 2017 programmatic music contest. In this case I did something a little different, I wrote a piece for orchestra and narrator (like Peter and the Wolf, which I was heavily inspired by). I do think there are some places where I could refine / expand upon (particularly have the finale in mind), but it is nearing the deadline
  14. This is a short composition for string orchestra. Here I was attempting to be less theme-based and more stylistically like contemporary classical music, focusing more on rhythm and texture. Hope you enjoy.
  15. A short piece for string ensemble.
  16. I composed this Concertino for Classical Guitar and String Orchestra (in three movements), one of my more ambitious compositions, around 8 months ago. I had intended it for performance by a guitarist friend who sometimes performs with orchestras. However, that has not materialized yet. So here it is for your enjoyment. It is the first concertino I have ever written.
