Thanks to all the new members for joining our banana party. There seem to be quite a few 'banana' composers here at musescore, whether ithe music is about the fruit banana or banana fish or banana fairies or whatever or if the music is just plain banana silly. Post your music, tell your friends. I even heard that some higher up in the government was thinking of joining since they have lots of experience in being completely bananas.
Oh, I said it in the title. Anyone?
What instruments do you play?
Hope y'all are having a great day!
Please check out my new piece for solo piano ( Rondo Comique):
FEEDBACK IS MORE THAN WELCOME AND MUCH APPRECIATED!
still, a work in progress need feedback and a name for the piece I'm open to ideas I'm not going to get offended if you say it's not that good
pretty good for an airline in a small country
I have finished a composition that I plan to hand to the Academy Flute Choir, however I would appreciate any feedback on it before I do so,
i've been meaning to ask this for a while, but what is patrick doing in the group icon?
If you listen to this score it will be stuck in your head for the rest of the week
and probably fill you w/ memories from your childhood
I think i just joined the group. I play flute, but haven't picked it up in a while. I need motivation.
A B25 flew over my school which we were doing a class photo. pretty awesome
I know I do.
If you haven't seen it yet, here is the link to my flute sonata:
I nicknamed it The Haydn Sonata because I am trying to get across a Haydnesque feel to it. I have noticed these things predominant in each composer of the Classical Period Trifecta:
- Haydn: Humor, melodic and harmonic surprises
- Mozart: Alberti bass, effortless grace
- Beethoven: Sheer power, even when the melody is more lyrical
Haydn is the one who inspired me to write this flute sonata. I wrote the sonata exposition in just an hour and this is the first sonata for a duet that actually has a finished exposition.
There are quite a few surprises in my sonata exposition. Here they are:
Bar 5: Sudden entry of the flute and absence of the piano
Bar 6: Sudden reentry of the piano
Bar 10: Short diminuendo, like the theme isn't quite done yet
Bar 11: Short staccato variant of the theme over a syncopated bass
Bar 14: Sudden forte cadence, theme is now finished
Bar 15: Piano dynamic in transition material right after a cadence at forte, sudden absence of the flute
Bar 21: Forte dynamic when transition material is taken up an octave, flute comes back
Bar 26: Piano dynamic yet again, descending trill motive
Bar 41: Very busy texture as the repeat comes closer
Bar 47: Sudden change in texture, sudden dynamic change as it repeats
I'm wondering, is my sonata exposition Haydnesque in its nature? I tried to get a Haydnesque feel to it by being more humorous than serious with the music. Anything impossible for the flutist? Does it feel like a Molto Allegro to you(tempo is at quarter note = 140 BPM)? Or should I just take the Molto off and just have Allegro as my tempo marking?
Mine is my rondo for a sonata collab
How's everyone been???
We also need help getting people into this awesome group. Are you up for the challenge?
