A Trumpeter from, Afghanistan.

in Trumpet

Hi everyone this is Qudrat Wasefi  a Trumpet player that is a thousand miles away in Afghanistan.
Afghanistan is war-torn and partly destroyed. 
I am from a country where you can not dream to be musician in such society.
We're so hopeless that even we are accepting this ridiculous thing that looks at the way world is in the 21th century, but our environment is still in the middle ages, so sorry for that.
by the way could you guys help me with the Trumpet addition solos and pieces?
What pieces have you recently played? and are working on now?

best regards;
Qudrat Wasefi

Variation on a theme contest (Ended)

It is about the time of the anniversary of the death of my beloved grandfather. As I think I have not done enough deeds for him before he passed away, I would honour him with a contest. I would like you to make a variation on this theme by Schumann. I gave you historical background on the piece in the description of the work.

Edit: Link closed due to the end of the contest

Rules:
This must only be for piano solo
The variation must be under 4 minutes and longer than 30 seconds. 
You may use any form in your composition: sonata, rondo, theme or variations
Have fun!

Winners will  have a follow from me and maybe have their piece placed in my upcoming Carnaval suite for solo piano. 

The contest will end on 6 January (Happy birthday Scriabin!)
Extended to 10th January

Good job to MadDuck for winning this contest!

My first composition....maybe the start of my composition journey :)

 Well, after months of going back and forth with this and self-doubt, i decided to take a stpe foward and start learning how to compose. This is my fisrt ever completed piece, for piano, which interestingly is not my instrument (but classical guitar). Still, this is the introduction to hopefully my first work. Please tell me your opinion and advice, as i am "thristy" to learn more! Finally, i hope you enjoy! :))
