The Completed first movement of my upcoming symphony in A Minor. Written in sonata form, there is a long exposition followed by a development (in C major and E Major) and then the recapitulation in A minor again. I have been struggling with "Writer's Block" for months and it's good to finally have this movement out of the way.

DISCLAIMER - This message I have for you is going to get very real. Not that any of you will really mind, but here goes:

When I first uploaded this score, people asked me if I was leaving MuseScore. Well, I am re-posting it now to tell you that I am taking a hiatus from MuseScore. For so long, this place has been my home, my place to post my new work, but as time has gone on, I have gotten increasingly busy and have lost the dedication to keep up with my internet image. It has also been hard on me living in my younger brother's shadow, and so for my own benefit, I am taking a break. My welcome has run out on MuseScore.

If there's anyone who would like to keep up with what I'm doing, you can find my YouTube channel linked in my bio.

From "A Journey to Mars" to "Drama for Orchestra No. 6," I appreciate all of your support. This journey appears to be over for me.

If you would like to talk to me, I would still welcome that, my email address is elliotbutlercomposer@gmail.com, and I'd love to keep up with the valuable connections I have made during my time here.

God bless you all. It's been fun.

2nd mov. Symphony of Celestial Spheres


In the darkness of the night, thousands of celestial spheres are contemplated. The view is lost through them in a fabulous journey.

En la oscuridad de la noche, se contemplan miles de esferas celestiales. La vista se pierde a través de ellas en un viaje fabuloso.

I wrote this ages ago and haven't touched it since. Thought I might share even though I don't think it's a particularly good piece because why not.

For my other compositions see my YouTube channel:

Sorry that the score is so messy, I made it in other notation software and don't work with MuseScore a lot.

For Solo Piano: 5 Waltzes in 5 Keys - Op. 25

1 part19 pages10:5214 days ago196 views
Piano
Dedicated to my friend Non but the tasty tarts can be my breakfast by Tchaikovsky
Featuring waltzes of different styles and keys in 345 measures.
The waltzes have all gotten reworked more or less from the already published versions. So these, are the new ones.

Work started: October 2018
Published: March 2019

It took 2 hours just to make the scores come together and look good, since the 'album' button was removed. On the other hand, the score did become quite pretty and I it was a learning experience.

The front cover painting is not mine, it is by famous painter Camille Pissarro - Boulevard Montmartre - Eremitage

Please let me know what you think about this! :)

Etude Op. 33 no. 5 'Valse'

1 part4 pages02:0725 days ago136 views
Piano
Etude number 5 comes out before number 4. This one features a more virtuosic score, which is probably harder than any other etude in this set currently. The basic idea came from me improvising on a walltz, then, I tried to increase the harmonies as well as the difficulty. It looks barely playable, but, it has a very childish and elegant theme.
I basically made it even harder...Because...Um...Yes...26/02/2019

For Solo Piano: 'Crow's Love' - Op. 37

1 part5 pages03:3218 days ago340 views
Piano
This is a piece that I have been working on for a week. It is surprisingly playable and I dare say that it is the best piece I have produced in a while. This piece is written in 3/4 and features a rather dark and romantic sounding subject which gets more and more decorated and complicated as the piece goes on. Until you reach the climax at the end, when everything is toned down and brought to a still and contemplative resolution.

The structure of the piece can be devided roughly into A1-A2-B1-B2-A3-A-1-Coda
or in short: manipulated ternary form (ABA) aka. A musical sandwhich. The piece is written in D minor with many harmonic excursons from the tonic, and a sweeter B subject in the middle. The melody has a slightly unstable element to it by the oscillating of chromatic notes yet the left hand provides enough guidance to make it sound well without sounding chaotic.

Please, feel free to comment below of what you think of this piece! All comment are appreciated and read by me. :)

Painting: Woman with a Crow - Picasso (gouache and pastel on paper)
This painting is from Pablo Picasso's 'blue period'. It was created during the artist's last years, and as you may guess from the name of the period, Picasso's work has a nocturnal and slightly eerie blue color. Some say he may have been inspired by Edgar Allan Poe (1809-49) - in a gesture of such tenderness that we sense a mood of loss or reverie.

Sonata in C Major - 2nd Mov. Andante

1 part2 pages04:074 months ago729 views
Piano
This is the second movement of a sonata in C major I am working at. It begins in e minor and changes to G major, the dominant of c major.
The whole sonata's style is late-classical or early-romantic, which explains the detailed dynamics.
If you wonder where the 1st mov. is: I have replaced it by this score and will repost it together with the other movements when I have finished this sonata.
Any feedback is welcome.

Valse diabolique

Snooze! Go away! Let me sleep! Just 5 more minutes inside this warm and dark place, I'm not ready yet!
Soon, I will be reaching 100 followers. I have prepared something special for that occasion, so stay tuned (your instruments too).
This was inspired by me not wanting to get out of bed, so I decided to turn the sound I hate the most, into something beautiful and fun!

Sonatina in B Flat Major

1 part3 pages02:5220 days ago48 views
Piano
The 1st movement of my sonatina in Bb Major! It has an 18 bar exposition in the home key of Bb Major (rather short I know but it is a sonatina) that is repeated. Then comes the development (which is much longer than the exposition) that begins in F major with inversions and a mannheim rocket. However there is a modulation in to the relative minor of the home key, G minor. After that theme is finished the development is repeated. Finally there is the recapitulation in B Flat and then the Coda which goes Bb Major-Bb Minor-Bb Major-F Major. Concluding the Coda is a series of chords in a V-I-V progression. The piece finished with a fff Bb Major accentuated chord.

Symphony No. 1 In C Major | Mvmt. 1 - Allegro | Ethan Toavs Music

Good day, everyone! I bring to you the project that I have been working on for over a month: a classical symphony. This attempts to follow all of the conventions of the classical era and the common practice period. This is only the first movement of what will eventually have four (planned) movements. This composition actually follows the sonata allegro format, and the conventions of it. Enjoy!
