good people of musescore!
please hear and review my latest composition for string orchestra. i wrote it from January to May 2019.
any feedback will be appreciated so feel free to comment!
This is the final piece that would be heard as part of my Inheritance Cycle pieces of music, a series I am writing as if for a new series of Eragon films. This particular piece would be heard over the final credits, and incorporates a number of previously established themes, as well as the Ra'zac theme, which is a bit of a sneak-peek into what themes I'm working on next.

Comment about instrumentation, the way of the piece and critiques as an overall!
Thanks for the feedback!
I'm currently working on a Sonata for Viola piano. It's a work in progress and any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
This is a piece that means a lot to me. I started writing it back in late October, inspired by events in my life from the previous few months. I worked very slowly on it, maybe a minute or so every few days, but what it meant to me was quite a lot.
It got halted in November, after just the first 16 bars had been written.
Almost 6 months on from that, I decided to carry on, realising that I could use it as a way to see how I've changed as a composer since then. The short answer is - I haven't. The first melody still came back. The second section represents where I've been in the intervening 6 months, but ultimately I've discovered I'm still the person I was, 10 Months On (from July 2018). I'm pretty happy with that.
I hope you enjoy it. This is not a work intended to be criticised too hard, and I have no plans to edit it. This is just what came to me to write, not something I've slaved over.
That's coming next month...
I am currently arranging the "Brandenburg Concerto No. 1" by Bach for at least a playable "Grade 2" for young players.
Thanks, your feedback means a lot!
I have arranged Piano Sonata K 545 for a string quartet. It only took me 2 hours to arrange the entire first movement. The last time I have made an arrangement this quick was when I arranged The Four Seasons for a flute and piano duet. All my other arrangements have taken days to months to complete.
I only have the first movement of K 545 finished so far but if it took 2 hours to arrange the first movement(which is by far the most complex movement of the sonata), then it shouldn't take all that much longer to arrange the second and third movements. Maybe I will even get the sonata arrangement finished by tonight.
I would like some feedback on my arrangement for string quartet. Here is the link:

So, I am arranging K 545 for a string quartet which is why I am asking this question. What should I do when I come across an area with 3 voices like for example bars 1-11? It is easy for me to decide what to do for 4 voices or for 2 voices or for a single voice. But the 3 voice situation is more complicated. Here is what I do for different numbers of voices:
4 Voices(such as bar 12):
1 voice per instrument, no octave doublings
2 Voices, both treble(such as bars 18-20):
Have first violin take up the higher voice and have second violin take up lower voice
2 Voices, both bass(which doesn't occur in the sonata):
Have viola take up the higher voice and have cello take up the lower voice
2 Voices, 1 treble and 1 bass(such as in bars 31 and 32):
Have either of the violins take up the higher voice and have either the viola or the cello take up the lower voice depending on how low the bass voice goes
1 Voice(such as in bar 13):
Simplest situation of all, just look at the range and see what instrument is best for that range.
In either the 2 voice cases or the 1 voice case, there may or may not be octave or unison doublings. Partly depends on whether there have been any rests recently.
But the majority of the sonata is in 3 voices. Sometimes, it is 2 bass and 1 treble and other times it is 2 treble and 1 bass. This is way harder to decide on, because the viola can partner up with the cello as a bass instrument or it can partner up with the violins as a treble instrument. And the 3 voices situation brings up the question of whether I should have the other instrument double by the unison or the octave or whether I should just leave it out.
I was wondering if someone could give me some advice here on what to do when I see 3 voices in the sonata that I am arranging for string quartet.
Hello! I've been playing clarinet for about 3 months now, but I have never quite been able to play in the upper register successfully. If any of you out there could give me some tips, it would be much appreciated!
Edit: Thank you all for your help!
