Violin, Piano
This is my first transcription of a song. I chose this piece because I have an electric piano and it has a bunch of demo songs, and I liked this one over the others. It's a song they play at a bunch of Jewish weddings and it literally means "good luck." I added my own twist to it (The solo part was originally clarinet on the demo, but i thought violin would work better, the violin didn't play in the last section of the piece, ect.) I hope you all enjoy it!
Criticism is welcome :D

May16,2017 extended 1st piece but in my mind the other 2 need to be refined ad need to say more about M.Ali and his times and also the paradigm he set for black men as a model as well as a type of black male stereotypye and lastly his probleatic committed change to the now sometimes feared Islamist spiritual faith traditions . It must reflect not only Ali but American Africanness and maleness ! 1st piece will be longer .3rd piece may change too, more structured ; have better more violent extremes of contrasting material-it shouldn't end dreamily except Ali is dead and taking the long sleep after a life well lived not after a knockout as the music suggests . Music honoring Muhammad Ali 's accomplishment , grace , humanity and many distinctions are known and will continue to inspire human beings who strive all over the world ! Written for the superlative and communicative pianist Stephen Hough ! Will do a larger more significant piece of music for this great ,courageous generous giving man!

Sonatina No. 2, WN. 2

1 part8 pages04:0219 days ago190 views
This is a compositional etude in the form of a sonatina, consisting of two movements:

The introduction [Bars 1 - 20] is a movement that introduces the main themes of the allegro main movement.
> The opening arpeggio reappears ~midway of the second mov.
> The small 'turn' that ends the arpeggio finds itself in the main subject of the second mov.
> The ending of the introduction also finds itself in the main subject of the second mov.

The Allegro [Bars 21 - 111] is a compact movement - consisting of the three main sections of a sonata-allegro . While not my first attempt [that belongs to the finale of my Cinema Suite], this movement represents (IMO) my first earnest attempt in writing in a fugal style.

I am not truly confident in calling this a prelude and fugue (which was my intention of the work) as I am not that confident in my skills just yet. Plus, in calling it a P&F - it brings to mind, within many, the baroque works. I wish to avoid this [as I didn't set out to write in a baroque style].

It's my second sonatina - my first one being a work of juvenilia [consisting of three movements - I have vague ideas of its current location].

Comments/Feedback on where to improveme are welcome, appreciated and needed [especially on the 'quasi'(?)-fugal writing of the second movement]

String Quartet No. 6 in Bb major, Opus 18, No. 6

4 parts50 pages26:3723 days ago36 views
Violin(2), Viola, Cello
The String Quartet No. 6 in B♭ major, Op. 18, No. 6, was written between 1798 and 1800 by Ludwig van Beethoven and published in 1801, and dedicated to Joseph Franz von Lobkowitz.

There are four movements:

Allegro con brio
Adagio ma non troppo
Scherzo: Allegro
La Malinconia: Adagio - Allegretto quasi Allegro

The first movement is in sonata form. The first theme starts in B♭ with a conversation between the first violin and the cello. After a while the second violin takes over the conversation from the cello. It then modulates to the dominant of F major and then F minor for the second theme at around m. 45. After a repeat of the first and second themes, the development section starts in F major. It starts by focusing on the "turn" figure of the first theme. It then shifts to D major and on to G minor and eventually returns to F major before shifting to B♭ for the recapitulation. This time around the second theme stays in B♭. The movement ends without a coda.

The second movement is in E♭ major and starts with the first violin playing a lyrical melody in 2
4 time. The mood shifts with the move to a minor key and unexpected accents and silences. The viola and cello inteject with an odd motif marked "queste note ben marcate".

The Scherzo returns to B♭ major and is a "tour de force of syncopation" and "an explosion of rhythmic eccentricity". "It depends on rhythmic effects of 3 x 2 as against 2 x 3 within the 6 eight-notes to the bar in a moderate 3/4 meter."

The fourth movement is the crux of the piece and possibly the highlight of Op. 18. It is marked "Questo pezzo si deve trattare colla più gran delicatezza" ("This piece is to be played with the greatest delicacy".). The first section, in 2
4 time is marked Adagio and on one reading matches the "Melancholy" of the title. The second section marked "Allegretto quasi allegro" is in 3
8 time and is more sanguine. It is a fast and simple evocation of a Viennese ballroom or German country dance. This proceeds in contrast to the first section but eventually grinds to a halt on a fortissimo diminished chord. There follows a brief return of section 1 (10 bars) followed by a briefer return of section 2 (5 bars) (in a minor) followed by an ever briefer return of section 1 (only 2 bars). This is followed by section 3, which is really a lengthier return of section 2, which starts in G and moves back to B♭.

ago and anyway I'm sure before i die I will leran to accept all of

So, there's a challenge where you make a score, but you blindly pick your instruments. I ended up with Crotales, Alto Cornamuse, Cymbals, Kazoo, and Banjo, which gave me this beautiful work of art. I've never done any kind of percussion in my scores, so if the cymbals are downright horrible, I get it. Check out the other scores, and join the discussion! ;P

PEZ peppermint piecesPlace of originViennaCreated byEduard Haas IIIInvented 1927Main ingredients SugarNutritional value(per 8.5 g (1 roll) serving)Protein0Carbohydrate7.9g My photi of a PEZ dispenser is the brand name of an Austrian candy and associated mechanical candy dispensers. The candy is a pressed, dry, straight-edged, curved-corner block (15 mm (5/8 inch) long, 8 mm (5/16 inch) wide, and 5 mm (3/16 inch) high), with Pez dispensers holding 12 Pez pieces.Pez was invented in Austria, and later exported worldwide. The all-uppercase spelling of the logo echoes the trademark's style on the packaging and the dispensers, with the logo drawn in perspective and giving the appearance that the letters are built out of 44 brick-like Pez mints (14 bricks in the P and 15 in each of the E and Z).Despite the widespread recognition and popularity of the Pez dispenser, the company considers itself to be primarily a candy company, and over 3 billion bricks are consumed each year in the U.S. alone.[1] Pez dispensers are part of popular culture in many nations, manga series Bleach.[2] Because of the large number of dispenser designs over the years, they are collected by enthusiasts.

A Study in Red, WN. 1 [Finished]

1 part13 pages10:46a month ago80 views
As a compositonal study, I intend to use the work as practice for extended structures. I'll be using Franz Liszt's "Scherzo und Marsch" and "Trauervorspiel und Trauermarsch" as references.

The work - essentially a small, condensed suite - consists of a prelude (marked by a descending bassline), a march (self-explanatory, I guess, with the rhythm being a variation of what I'd normally use), an intermezzo (essentially a trio, with the middle being a sort-of-variation on the prelude's bassline, inverted and with some altered notes) and a coda (acting as a recapitulation for both the march and the prelude).

For now, it is a more-or-less completed work though I do plan on altering the coda a *tiny* bit.

A personal note:

I’m beginning to grow tired of this style very much - this “hyper-romanticism” - that I’ve gotten myself into with the past works that I’ve published. The music so hard to sustain, especially in trying to keep the repetition of the theme interesting.

I’ll be spending a few weeks trying to find a new “voice” (one that reflects more modern aesthetics, I suppose).

Enjoy. Comments on where to improve are welcome.

Concerto for 4violins like vivalsi with someting I learned from Schnittke in his neoclassical pieces so unlovely so unlikel Stravinsky at a different time making sure he learned while also pleasing the rich wives who supported creative types . I must think about the listener sometimes ! strange RIdE is music for 2 pianos iwith an Arabian meditterannean color with baroque flourishes ! Will take a while to flesh it all out maybe add some percussion later !
