  1. Here's a band piece I recently wrote. I originally conceived it as a choral piece based on my own words, but I decided the words were bad and the music might work better without them. The beginning has a bit of that familiar "choral piece transcribed for band" feel, but starting about 30 seconds in, I begin to develop the material in more instrumental ways. I've accepted the fact that wind bands aren't always capable of the same nuances of colour as orchestras--especially in softer, more delicate sections. So the composition itself--as well as the orchestration--is a bit simpler than it might be if I had written this for orchestra. But I hope it's still effective. I'd especially like feedback on the orchestration. Are the contrasts interesting and frequent enough? Does the frequent use of glockenspiel and triangle get annoying or overbearing? P.S. - The sounds are Vienna Symphonic Library - just the basic Special Edition set. SCORE AND AUDIO
  2. Hello! It has been a long while since I posted here, and whatever little I did post went along with the refresh (???) of this forum. Anyway, here is an unnamed (because I'm bad with names) concert march which I have been working on and off over the past few months. It is written in the Japanese concert march style if you are familiar with it. The marches are typically written for the All-Japan Band Competition as set pieces. They tend to have a slightly different structure and (sometimes almost completely different) feel from the traditional English and American marches. There's no particular inspiration or motivation for this piece - just a short work which I had fun working on in my free time. Admittedly, this isn't exactly a piece which less experienced bands should attempt. If this piece ever gets played at all. Notation may be weird in some places (notes for bari sax are halved in value rather than stacatto-ed, questionable dynamics, no slurs in euphonium part, etc) but that is to achieve better playback quality since the midi (Sibelius Sounds) do mess up at times, so please don't mind them! Do comment on the piece, and I hope you enjoy it. :-)
  3. This is the revised version of my piece "Baron von Munchausen, Or, Munchausen's Narrative of his Marvellous Travels and Campaigns in Russia" for concert band, which I originally submitted for the Winter Competition here. Some changes: I completely replaced the "Wild Boar," "Horse-Taming," and "Journey to the Moon" sections, replacing them with something more thematically tied to the rest of the piece; I added more "connective tissue" between the sections of the story to give it more cohesiveness; finally, I added some instruments and spruced up the score/notes quite a bit. The sound quality may be worse than the original, since this is just the raw MuseScore mp3 export, although some things (like dynamics and accents) will sound clearer. @Adrian Quince, I know you were interested in hearing a revised version -- although I know you've done quite a lot of work reviewing my pieces lately, so no pressure!
