My friends sometimes ask me to translate his or her name into a musical composition. I must confess that I love these activities as it forces you to make a melodic line out of it. So my challenge is:
Make a piece of music out of a name (can be anyone's)
Pieces should be longer than one minute and less than 3 minutes.
If those who are confused in how to use cryptograms then here is one way you could do this (French method):
I would judge your pieces based on originality, how beautiful it is and bonus if difficult names are used.
Please in your titles that you need to state the name of the person
The winner will have their piece upvoted and will be followed by me.
Here is an example where the piece uses a musical cryptogram:
Your submission will be due at 15th February
It is about the time of the anniversary of the death of my beloved grandfather. As I think I have not done enough deeds for him before he passed away, I would honour him with a contest. I would like you to make a variation on this theme by Schumann. I gave you historical background on the piece in the description of the work.
Edit: Link closed due to the end of the contest
This must only be for piano solo
The variation must be under 4 minutes and longer than 30 seconds.
You may use any form in your composition: sonata, rondo, theme or variations
Winners will have a follow from me and maybe have their piece placed in my upcoming Carnaval suite for solo piano.
The contest will end on 6 January (Happy birthday Scriabin!)
Extended to 10th January
Good job to MadDuck for winning this contest!
so it turns out it was not obvious that you cannot enter pieces into a different contest. You cannot enter a piece into more than one contest. I hade 2 people enter pieces from RSA contests.
All admins can manage the group. You can do as many things as you please as long as it benefits the group. If it doesn't make sense, I can always change it. Feel free to do anything to benefit the group.
CMC. Owner, IGitzDiz.
Rules: The rules are:
Must be for string quartet( 2 violins, 1 viola, 1 cello )
Must be a minute or longer

Every time you enter a score into the contest, you need to upload it to the sheet music section of the group itself. It will make it easier to find them to judge. Also, you need to rename them to say CMC Contest. For example
"CMC Contest #5 Sonata in C Minor". Please reply if you read this if you are confused reply as well.
Wagner premiered the Flying Dutchman in Dresden, Germany.

Did you know, on this day, the German composer Johannes Brahms premiered his Violin Concerto in D major with Hungarian violinist, Joseph Joachim in 1897? This concerto which has been claimed by Polish violinist, Henryk Wieniawski as an "unplayable" work while Spanish violinist, Pablo Sarasate refused to play the work. Now it is one of the greatest violin concertos ever written and it is very famous today.
Here is a link to my favourite recording of this concerto played by Itzhak Perlman:
