Three Sententiae for Violoncello, Op. 341
luderart posted a topic in Chamber MusicThis is my "Three Sententiae for Violoncello, Op. 341". It is my second set of sententiae for violoncello. It took me many months to conceive and develop the three sententiae and to shape each to my artistic satisfaction. I hope that you will enjoy them.

Soliloquy for Violoncello No. 13
luderart posted a topic in Chamber MusicThis is my Soliloquy for Violoncello No. 13. It was inspired by my getting back my cello after a long time. I practiced it, hoping to be able to adequately perform it and be able to post my performance of it instead of the computer-generated MP3. However, having not touched the cello for many years, I still need much more practice to give it a smooth performance, let alone a good interpretation of the piece, and hence do justice to the piece in performance. Maybe, I'll do so in the future. In the meantime, any cellist who is interested in the piece would be welcome to take up the challenge, perform the piece, and post their performance! Reviews are also welcome.
Motus Transiens for 2 Violins and Violoncello
jawoodruff posted a topic in Chamber MusicI'm at a loss of words on how to describe this work. The idea behind it was a study in string textures -yet, it seems to have gone beyond that somewhat (at least to me). Compositionally, each section utilizes a descending motif -with various variations over it. It's definitely not minimalist in design as the changes aren't as subtle -and there is a fine demarcation between some of the textures. Hope you enjoy.
Quintet for Flute, Clarinet, Bassoon, Violin, and VC
jawoodruff posted a topic in Chamber MusicI started this quintet with the intention of entering this into a competition -so, I've been working pretty intently on it (to the point that it's all I think about). Here are the first 2 movements: 1. Andante: The first movement serves as a sort of introductory movement. The movement utilizes the short two bar theme presented in the opening (this theme also permeates large portions of the work as a whole). The theme is presented in all voices, leading to the establishment of a 'hopefully' hypnotic pattern -through which I play with the theme and introduce contrapuntal material. The structure is ABA'. 2. Allegro Con Fuoco: This is the movement so far that I've spent the most time on -and this is revision number 4. The opening two bars introduce an ostinato pattern that is taken up by ALL instruments within the quintet. This movement is meant to be faster than what I have set. I've slowed it down to give more attention to detail. 3. Adagio Semplice: To compliment the 2nd movement -and in stark contrast texturally- this movement is more of a mediation and prayer-like movement. The movement is slow and contemplative. At any rate, I'll post the final 2 movements once I've finished them. Hope you all enjoy these experiments.
5 Short Pieces for Flute, Viola, and Violoncello
jawoodruff posted a topic in Chamber MusicThere's so much to be said -with sometimes not enough time to say it. The same is true of music. So many ideas, and yet... we're left with so much longing after each piece. This is the idea behind this work. The ideas are pretty basic. There's some dabbling in serialism, free atonalism, combining tonal systems with serial rows, and a little more. NOTE: The scores aren't that well done. I'm using Flat (a free notation software) since I can't install Finale or Sibelius to my chrome book -and I am moving the pieces from paper to there. I'll be updating the scores once my new laptop arrives and I can get Sib installed again. Until then, I've done my best in adapting to Flat. It's not a bad notation software (though the midi sucks). My apologies! Hope you enjoy!

[CELLO] Меня зовут Мартен (My name is Maarten)
Maarten Bauer posted a topic in Chamber MusicHello everybody! Here is a little piece written for an assignment with the theme ''Self-portrait''. I was assigned the cello as the instrument to write for. The duration of the piece had to be approximately 1 minute. The piece shows my most obvious characteristics: I am full of energy, but I can also be very still and I can be driven by my emotions quite a lot, haha! The Russian title of the piece Меня зовут Мартен is, because I notice that Russian composers like Stravinsky, Shostakovich, Prokofiev and Tchaikovksy inspire me a lot. What do you think about the piece? Any comments on the cello writing too? Thanks for listening! Maarten
[CELLO] Double stops

The Anthem of Broken Dolls (Opus 25)
Guest posted a topic in Chamber MusicI would like to share with you my new composition. It was exceptionally painful and frustrating to finish, but I hope that those emotions added a bit of an artistic and melancholic spice to this silly little piece. Enjoy and thank you for listening.
Eviternity (Opus 24)
Guest posted a topic in Piano Music, Solo KeyboardEviternity (Opus 24) is a piano monologue. Even though it has slight additions of cello, glockenspiel, and bass guitar as small ornaments to spice the whole work up, it is mostly a highlight on piano. I was not sure whether I can post it here, but I treat it as a piano work in the highest degree; the composition could be played as a soliloquy without any other instruments. I had some harmonic issues when writing this piece, so you may find slight dissonances. However, I left those unchanged in the end (I do not wish to stick to consonances all the time). This composition is also known as "the most cheesy work I've ever written." Thank you for listening!
Soliloquy for Violoncello No. 12
luderart posted a topic in Chamber MusicThis is my 12th soliloquy for vioncello. I composed it in response to Monarcheon's "Solo Cello Writing Challenge". It was inspired by the following respectively: 1) Learning about the challenge 2) Hearing distant, barely audible, dream-like notes of music probably from the radio of a car that I heard late at night 3) A more personal inspiration. Here is the link to my previous soliloquy for violoncello: http://www.youngcomposers.com/archive/music/listen/7696/soliloquy-for-violoncello-no-11/ Edit: There was an error in the opus number of the piece. I corrected it just now (March 6, 2017, 4:25GMT). So if anyone downloaded the previous score, please disregard it and download the current one.
Guest posted a topic in Chamber MusicVery random thing I made recently, not knowing what's going on actually... I strived for something between instrumental and ambient/free form. I used very low piano keys on purpose, just to make it clear - restricting yourself to only middle range makes everything too crowded and not very imaginative. Plus, I love low pitches, so deal with it! I'm extremely worried about the transitions between different musical ideas. A casual track for sipping warm tea in a cold, snowy day, I guess. Thank you for listening!
Nymph's Sleep (Opus 17)
Guest posted a topic in Chamber MusicA small lullaby thing I did for my Music Production (high school) class. The only objective was to produce a piece that will be exactly 2 minutes (my exceeds 120 seconds, but only because of the delay and reverb - I had to leave two empty bars for the sound to go down). I also tried to experiment with the harmony. It's a bit flexible, balancing between C major/minor and G major/minor. I just wanted to get out of the frame of choosing one key and using it's parallel or relative key. On the other hand, I do not want to write atonal music. Nymph's Sleep is written for two harps, glockenspiel, small string section (violoncellos and bassess), flute and bassoon, celesta, and synthesizers (bell synthesizers with a lot of delay). There is no score for this composition yet. Thank you for listening and let me know whether it's harmonically bearable - I did not study harmony yet.
Blissful Morning (Classical Version)
Guest posted a topic in Chamber MusicBlissful Morning (Opus 15, classical version) written for piano, flute, violoncello, and a little dose of synthesizer in the finale. Originally, I planned on adding a toy piano sound, but unfortunately my software (Logic Pro X) doesn't have one. Instead of that, one of the syntheiszer leads has been added. The piece is written in F major entirely. I was trying to not jump too much in the rhythm sections or harmony, since my music teacher advised me to try to stick to one idea - sometimes less is more, and ideal doesn't mean perfect. If you like this version, please check out the electro one available on this site too! Thank you for listening, any helpful hints and comments!
