Does anyone want a piece of music for a certain instrument ?
What instruments do you play?
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
I just finished another piece for guitar solo, and found this instruments able to play rather complex structure when its strings are arranged manually. I cannot play this instrument, what I did is just to keep the position of the left hand in a small range. Is this right?
Also, I still have some questions about the string arrangement on a very fast part. For example, in bars 152-170 in this piece, is using different strings alternately helpful/necessary to maintain the speed?
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,
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?

Hi, I am arranging church hymns traditionally played on piano, for classical guitar. I have just finished arranging "Rockingham" by Edward Miller (1790), which is a favourite tune for a number of hymns. Please feel free to check it out:
