There were some wind chimes at the store today, and hearing the notes inspired this song. I tried writing it in the style of a celtic reel (and yes, I was thinking the steps in my head while making it!) 🌿 Better quality here: https://youtu.be/USLS-rMV6zY

This is for Jakob Altmann's challenge, so you should check him out. This was pretty fun! You, reading this should participate in it. And it doesn't take that much work.

I hope you enjoy this kind of dark theme. I had trouble to get finished the 'happy' part, and I'm still no very happy with it, I've changed it a hundred times, but anyway here it is. I included the tab since I wrote most of the theme directly on Musescore and not playing the guitar, and I wanted to know if it was playable. I have other 5 finished scores for piano waiting to be uploaded, while I'm deciding to go pro...

Hello all! I've had this idea for quite some time, and I finally finished it. Without further ado, Tarantella Fantastica! These are the program notes I wrote up for it: The tarantella is a lively Italian folk dance, characterized by an upbeat tempo, 6/8 metre, and the use of tambourines. This piece takes the concept of a tarantella and, over its course, gradually morphs it into the musical equivalent of a Pablo Picasso painting. It begins with a fanfare-like introduction, transitioning into the main theme (stated in the clarinets, then doubled in the saxophones). The main theme develops, making the first of many modulations up the circle of fifths into D minor. The piece then crescendos into the first “variation”, setting the theme in 3/4 against a 6/8 accompaniment. After modulating up into G minor, the clarinets and the saxophones state the first 16 bars of the original theme in retrograde, followed by a harmonically wandering trumpet solo. The brass echoes a melody stated by the clarinets earlier, with the saxophones playing accompaniment- only the second time around, the roles of the accompaniment are reversed. This segues into another “variation”- a bold, lurching tarantella in which traditional orchestration roles are reversed, with the “traditionally melody” instruments playing the onbeats and the tuba and low instruments playing the offbeats. The trumpets then state the melody accompanied by atonal splats of sound, and after that split off and harmonize in minor seconds on either side. The horns briefly rip the general shape of the melody without the correct notes, and the piece concludes with a colorful reharmonization of the melody in the full band. The only constant throughout the entire piece is the tambourine- the hallmark of a tarantella. Not gonna lie, this didn't turn out quite how I wanted it to, but I like it anyways. Listen, comment, and enjoy!

Hello all and here's my second Lied (actually spelled correctly this time!) It's a setting of Goethe's Anliegen (the word doesn't translate the best, but it's about "wish"). It's rather short, because the poem is rather short. Here's the poem: O schönes Mädchen du, Du mit dem schwarzen Haar, Die du ans Fenster trittst, Auf dem Balkone stehst! Und stehst du wohl umsonst? O stündest du für mich Und zögst die Klinke los, Wie glücklich wär ich da! Wie schnell spräng ich nihauf! The poem doesn't actually have a translation anywhere in English, but it's something around O beautiful girl you, you with the black hair That you step to the window, stand on the balcony ! And are you standing there for no reason? O are you standing for me And unlocking the door? How happy would I be there! How quickly I would jump up there! Anyways, listen, comment, and enjoy!
