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 am arranging Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata for a string quartet. I might add a double bass if I think it is necessary, but so far, no issues with it being a quartet, at least not in the first and second movements. Now I'm arranging the Presto Agitato and as if it wasn't hard enough with the need to smoothly transition from the viola to the violin in those sixteenths, if I keep the interval relationship, the notes are going to be too high. I could get away with this octave displacement in the previous 2 movements(With the first movement, I basically did this octave displacement for the entire bass line to fit it into the cello), but now, the octaves the sixteenths are in are crucial to getting the right sound out of the Presto Agitato.
There are 2 things I can think of as to how to get the Presto Agitato to sound right, one of which keeps the instrumentation, and another of which keeps the original octaves.
Option 1: Add Double Bass
This would keep the original octaves, and I could have it play the bass line and have the sixteenths start in the cello and rise upwards to the viola and second violin.
Option 2: Move bass line to Viola for first measure of each arpeggio run
This would keep the instrumentation I have going of a string quartet and for everything except the bass line, the original octaves would be kept as well.
Which one of these 2 options do you think would be better? Any other suggestions?
NOTE: I'm only asking about the arpeggio runs, the scales and Alberti bass are easier to arrange.
I'd like to play it with my sister, we are both Grade 8 ABRSM. I've trained making it myself but it's not good at all :(
I know I do.
Mine is my rondo for a sonata collab
Hi I am new to composing - anyone got any advice on how to start?
I'm a piano player arranging for strings!I have a question: If I have the 1st Violins play div., and i want both voices to play legato and staccato, do I need to put staccato dots/legato lines over both voices or only one?

Hi all, there used to be a flute piece titled "end credits", but it was taken down when the user's account got suspended. Does anyone else know what piece I'm referencing, and can anyone remake it? (I'm not too good in the composing area).
This is one of my first scores, so any and all feedback would be great (although preferably constructive criticism). Thank you!
Hi there! I have yet another piece I'm looking for feedback on (again, preferably constructive criticism, but hey). Please comment on the piece itself preferably, but idc if you post here either.

My four friends and I are choosing to do Solo/Ensemble for our orchestra and it's our job to find music, which i'm sure you know, is very hard. So does anyone have any suggestions? The only requirements are for it too be a quartet w/ only violins. :D
