Hey guys! This is the first time I ever wrote an atonal piece, so I would like some advice and critique!
Marc-Andre Hamelin is widely acclaimed as one of the greatest virtuosi alive, and has recorded all manner of pieces. I would like to enquire as to the personal preferences of this group with regard to this Canadian master?
My own favourite recordings of his:
Alkan's Symphonie pour Piano Seul; Concerto pour piano seul; Le Festin d'Esope.
Liszt's Sonata H-moll
Saint-Saens' Piano concerto no. 2, third movemnet.
That last piece he performs unassailably.
I have just created a group to compile a songbook of songs from Musescore (See group description for more detail, here's the link: http://musescore.com/groups/ultimate_songbook_of_musescore. We need all the people we can get to join, as it 30+ people to really kick start the path to publishing the song book, so it would be great for everybody to join!
Thanks in advance!
I am not sure of the definition of virtroso
Please read the piece description; I plan to revise this piece later for improper notation and time signature but I'd also love to hear thoughts on the material, themes, harmony, structure, etc.
Hi Guys! I have created a new piece into my collection!... a rondo! I would gladly like comments and critique based on it! :)
I'm currently doing a collection of pieces in all 24 keys, for piano solo. I need help completing the set, so I'd appreciate it if you'd help out composing a short (less than or around 4 minutes) in G# minor (for now). The only criteria it must fulfill in order for it to be considered in the project is that the style of the piece must be different from the rest. Example: the piece in F major is written in a waltz, the one in Eb major is written 4/4 against 3/4, C minor has a Prokofiev (I think) feel to it, F minor is written in jazz, etc. Also, it must show some form of virtuoso/impressionism (whichever you are aiming for). I am interested in the dances forms (tango, marzuka, minuet, sarabande...), but anything goes for now. Credits will be given for the piece if it makes it in, as well as a favourite and a follow, very well deserving.
Here's the piece: https://musescore.com/user/151230/scores/5162921
PS: I might reject some pieces if I find the piece unsuitable for the project, I'll also include critique/reasons for the said decision. Love to hear from you guys!
This is a very incomplete rough draft of my Scherzo in E minor. It is one of the first pieces I've composed in a serious manner, and being that I don't actually take composition lessons, I'm looking for places to receive critique. Thanks for listening! Please comment :)
For any composers interested in composing a prelude and fugue in this years composer competition:
You can see the themes on my profile.
Since this group is supposed to have advanced pianists and composers, I thought some of you might be interested in joining a piano theme and variations contest. Here's the link:
I am new comer in this MuseScore group. I am a piano learner and learning this MuseScore software. I am composing a song with the software but I am quite not sure that the sound font I used (the MuseScore default sound font) is the most suitable one to the actual grand piano. Is anybody can help me in this matter?
Hello; I am currently trying to write a fourth piano concerto (which will be the first uploaded here), but I am having somewhat of trouble in several areas... I have written several fragments of it, but cannot get any coherency or particular interest. I am increasingly busy, and so I offer the fragments I've written to whomsoever wishes to use them to write their own concerto with my beginnings.
If you wish to use anything there, you may... I haven't got the energy to finish it...
There are many good ones out there...
But they do not have competitions very often.
You have constraints and rules you have to follow. Sometimes it is as easy as writing a dissonant Minuet, sometimes it might be as challenging (for some people) as writing a Fugue. So come on! Enter your first competition! The winner (whoever recieves the most votes) will be moderator/co administer to the group until the winner of the second competition wins! Hurry! Deadline is August 8!
