Does anyone want a piece of music for a certain instrument ?
What instruments do you play?
Hey! I just finished an arrangement of space oddity and I want to know what you think about it. Here is the link https://musescore.com/user/24238096/scores/5785124
maybe you have the words to it?
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?
I arrange simple but effective numbers for small drum and bugle corps. I haven't been able to figure out how to upload my scores to "give back" for some of the scores I've downloaded to build on. I'd appreciate any advice
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
My name is Don. I wonder if there is room in this group for an old kid? I live in the Ft. Lauderdale, FL area. I have been arranging and composing for 4 or 5 years now. I use www.SheetMusicPlus.com to sell my sheet music. It gives me a thrill, the goosebumps, and a smile when someone buys my work for their choir/chorus to learn and perform. I am...
