  1. I'm currently working the 2nd movement of this symphony, but I would like suggestions for the 1st movement (comments, Ideas, Tips, etc.) Sheet Music: https://flat.io/score/5eef99454b53ee4e7d13f68e-my-music-score?sharingKey=28554ceb90a5639dd05223c384b97a11b95893f1e3642e694631f9971e29475dbc0741f00b48d266840b8fcbfb6eb584f694720100ed36c17fc404f9594ec2fe Thank you!!
  2. Hello everyone, this is the first movement of a symphony that i'm making, the is my first draft of the first movement, i would like to know people's opinion and critique of this work. I had to redo this movement many times, and it was tough putting it all together, nevertheless i hope you all enjoy it to some extent.
  3. Hello everyone. I am a young composer, This is my first original composition, which wrote for symphony orchestra. Petro Melnyk - "Overture of life" Music shows how diverse life can be. Lyrical, melodic, harmonious, but also disturbing, tense. In the first part, the music constantly keeps us in suspense. Marked trombones keep the rhythm, and the different timbres of the instruments do not allow to calm down until the culmination of tension reaches its highest point and the lyrical part begins with a solo oboe which shows not everything as scary as it seems, later other timbres are connected until the string enters. a band that gives melodies fullness of sound. Permanent glissando horns also add fullness to the sound. Only at the end of the first and second parts are combined in major key. And the code, thanks to the unusual rhythm, shows that everything is much more complicated than it seems, but the work ends in major and it gives us hope for a better future. You can find other my arrangement on my chanel on YouTube. In description also you can find link to buy sheet music, or if you want to buy sheets by another method, please write to me. I will be glad if you support me with like and subscription.
  4. Hello everybody, i am new here! My name is Leonardo and i am 17 years old, i am a young composer looking for some feedback! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5zGgmj1ilY I would like to share this with you, hopefully you have some time left in your day and you could take a look at it! It took me 6 months to make. If you want you can comment under the video or on this site, does not really matter! Let me know what you think 🙂
  5. Hello guys. Recently I have been working on a symphony of quite simply epic proportions, and I want to share Symphony - I..mp3it to you for some feedback and advice. You can listen to the symphony at the YouTube links below, and I have also uploaded the score and MP3 in case you want to dive into it a bit more. Link to playlist:
  6. First of all I will show the corrected version of the piece, right here: It is scored for 1 flute, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassons, 2 high horns in C, 2 trumpets in C, timpani (C,G,D,A), and strings. The compositiong plays around themes exposed in a sort exposition. The tonal travel is C-->G for the exposition then Cm-->Abm-->A-->F-->Bb-->(Gm-->Bbm-->C#m-->Em)x2 and finally the reexposition in C major. The movement is in sonata form, but is has some surprises. If you have any feedback please leave a comment. Version with mistakes:
  7. I hope you all are doing well this days! Here I share a little scherzo of a little symphony I'm writing to practice. The scherzo is based in some fragmented themes my little sister was tackling on the piano (that is why she is mentioned in the score!) I hpe you enjoy it and as always I'm open for feedback and things to improve. I know that the structure of the scherzo it is not completly correct as in the scherzo part I do not repeat the A section and then the B section. Aswell istead of a trio there is some sort of funeral music (to give some contrast).
  8. This would have been part of my GCSE coursework (unsure of what equivalents elsewhere would be), but given the present situation, we aren't going to have it assessed as it normally would be, so I figured that it'd be alright for me to post it here. I realise that in some places it isn't very tight formally, but it's better than previous compositions, and that's something I'm hoping to work on more in the future. I get if people don't have time to listen to the whole thing, but feedback on any of it would be appreciated. Edit - for some reason the audio and pdfs are in an odd order and I can't coerce them not to be.
  9. Here the first 47 bars of the first movement of my first symphony! Allegro.mp3 Open for feedback and suggestions!
  10. A new symphony! I completely understand if you do not have the time to listen to some random person's full length symphony. Therefore, I appreciate feedback of any sort, even if for just one movement. However, as the composer I do not recommend you listen to the finale before the rest of the symphony, as much of the finale's musical direction is drawn from the rest of the symphony. I have provided a full analysis of the work in the score provided. Please give as much criticism as you can (and try to reference measures in the work to give weight to your points, and so I can also see what you mean). As always, thank you very much for your time and I look forward to this becoming a better symphony!

  11. Last year I made the most interesting discovery that in the month his violin concerto had it's first performance (March/April 1845) Mendelssohn was working on a 6th symphony in C-Major! For the 1st mov. he wrote the first about 80 bars in full score and some sketches for the 2nd theme and the development. This fascinated me so much that I tried to make a full movement of it. I finally could also get the sketches for a second movement from a library in Oxford and made it to complete also this to a whole Andante movement of about 14 minutes. The first 2:50 minutes are based on a full melody sketch with various hints to the accompaniement by Mendelssohn. After orchestrating this I continued with a new middle part with various themes with each increasing in strength and coming to a dramatic climax with an appassionate fugato. After this various variations of Mendelssohn's beautiful Andante theme follow until a recapitulation of the beginning and a most tender final variation. I.Allegro http://www.gerdprengel.de/Mendelssohn_unfinished_symphony1.mp3 http://www.gerdprengel.de/Symphony_in_C_Allegro.pdf II. Andante cantabile http://www.gerdprengel.de/Mendelssohn_unfinished_symphony_Andante.mp3 http://www.gerdprengel.de/Mendelssohn_unfinished_symphony_Andante.pdf It would help me to get your impressions ... Thank you Regards, Gerd
  12. Here is the first movement of my Symphony No. 4 in D Major. I completed the entire symphony at the end of last year. Any feedback is welcome on this movement, particularly regarding harmony and orchestration!
  13. Hi forum 🙂 This is my new symphonic study, in a rather romantic style, which I had started in August, but that has been delayed by other musical projects. Hope you'll like at least some moments 🙂
  14. Star Wars belongs to our cultural heritage. The music is truly phenomenal! Written by John Williams, the man that plays in his own league. He is one of my biggest examples and a never ending inspiration source. How great it is then to attend a live performance of the International Symphony Orchestra of Lviv and the National Choir of Ukraine 'Dumka' playing his music (and from Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer, Mykola Lysenko, Ramin Djawadi and Vangelis). It was mindblowing! In this video I'll do a short analysis of what is happening on the stage during the Imperial March, Darth Vader's Theme. The music track that has been released in 1980! Hopefully you'll enjoy it! And that it inspires you to write (more) orchestral music for film. Cause maybe on one day ... your work might be performed on stage by a symphony orchestra and choir like this 😉 https://youtu.be/t2L7cB5nRro From a theoretical point of view this composition is also quite fascinating! I can talk about it for many hours. Did you know: During the march all of the pitched instruments playing (strings, horns, and timpani) are at or near the very bottom of their range. The result is a very dark color to the sound. Harmonically, it focuses on the dark sound of minor chords and presents distorted versions of what would otherwise be normal progressions (i–#iv–#v–i in G minor) Melodically, the theme is constantly moving in the downward direction Fascinating!
  15. I have been arranging mostly Beethoven and Mozart lately. I figured it was time to change that and arrange a piece by a different composer. It has also been a long time since I arranged a piece for piano, either duet or solo. So I was wondering what would fit into a Piano Duet arrangement well. I immediately narrowed things down to orchestral works. I figured that for the best chances of fitting into a Piano Duet, I would want to stick to those composed in the Classical Era. I know from experience that Beethoven is hard to fit into a Piano Duet, not to mention the resulting arrangement being hard to play. This left me with only 1 other composer really, that being Franz Joseph Haydn. And of course, if I am going to arrange an orchestral work by Haydn, it is going to be one of his 100+ symphonies. The one I am most familiar with is his "Surprise" Symphony, probably the most well known Haydn symphony in existence. It ranks up there with Symphony no 40 K 550 and Beethoven's Fifth in terms of familiarity. The most famous part of that symphony is the second movement, where out of nowhere, the whole orchestra blares out a fortissimo chord. Another surprise in the second movement is the sudden jolt from C major to C minor. But, you know me, I always arrange the first movement first, even if it isn't the most well known part of the piece. I found that so far, Haydn fits pretty well into a Piano Duet arrangement, fitting better than Mozart and way better than Beethoven to the ensemble of a Piano Duet. So far, I have arranged the entire first movement of the symphony. Now, before you go on about impossible hand crossings, I arranged this for 2 Pianos 4 Hands. So there are no hand crossings between pianists, just hand crossings between notes played by the same pianist. This is the edition of the symphony I have been using from IMSLP: http://ks.imslp.net/files/imglnks/usimg/0/09/IMSLP494069-PMLP34746-2_IMSLP284343-PMLP461683-Hayd_Sinf_2.pdf Here is the first movement of Haydn's "Surprise" Symphony arranged for a Piano Duet. What do you think of my Haydn arrangement so far?
  16. Hi all 🙂 Here's my last symphonic study in A minor. The wisest among you will still find some dissonances inside, but I confess I have spent for myself enough time on it. Hope you'll like some moments… 🙂 Regards
  17. The first (attempted) Symphony, written by the young composer, Drake King.
  18. Hi all. I want to get involved in orchestral music, bit by bit. I chose a not large orchestra to write this. Surely, there'll be mistakes. For example, although I've checked it, one of the flute is in a very high register, but a piccolo couldn't do the lower notes of the phrase). I have thought about this piece in terms of color, timber, and sound masses. Please, don't tell me I should have deleted the empty staves because I don't want to do it. I like to see the silence as part of the score. I think I have thankfully been influenced by Brahms, Ives, R. Strauss, Shostakovich, and Gorecki... Dear Masters.
  19. Hello! I am a 17 year old music student from Belgium. I recently wrote a concerto for double bass, and it turned out really well in my opinion. Now that it's finished I actually really want to write a new piece, but I can't find any themes. I was wondering, for those who don't really those "Aha! I've got a theme!"-moments at random, how do you find/look for a new theme? Where do you get your inspiration from? And how do you know if you didn't steal it from an other work? Thanks!
  20. This is the first movement of my third symphony, scored for orchestra. I'll upload the other movements when I have finished putting them on Musescore (they are on manuscript just now.) I hope you enjoy it.
  21. Dear young composers, The Symphonic Society of Limeira recently opened a call for scores for chamber music and symphonic works. Please consider submitting your works For more information visit call for scores by clicking on the link below: https://www.sinfonicadelimeira.com.br/call-for-scores Best regards,
  22. Hello everyone. It's a rough few months for me in a lot of ways, so this is really the first piece I have put up in a while. I don't often talk in the forum, as I usually just post. Anyway, here is my first, proper symphony, my Op. 41, and it is about my stay at Dublin last spring. I loved my time there, and I plan on returning soon. It is in four, semi-programmatic movements, and the whole piece is about 40 minutes. I really wanted to share it with everyone, so let me know your thoughts and criticisms, which I always appreciate. Thanks!
  23. Hi all 🙂 I composed this second study straight in a row after the first. I'm rather more satisfied with it. Please let me know what you think ; I also share the PDF if interested. Thanks for listening 🙂
