  1. Today's Composers
    I tried to make good use of the additional free time during the pandemic, and have recorded several of my compositions. For most of them, I had to do quite some practising to be able to play them on the piano. But altogether I'm quite happy with the result! Here's a selection of some of the...

    Hey All, I'm excited to announce the release of my first album titled "Walk With Me". I invite you to come alongside for this instrumental adventure. Although there are no lyrics this album has much to say. I hope it can speak to you in a universal language spoken by all nations. I have a...
  3. Today's Composers
    Hey guys, these pieces are from my collection. Portraits is a...well, portrait, of different composers. I've composed/arranged these pieces to reflect some of my favourite composers, and I thought this would be the right place to share it. It's by no means a professional project, just...

    Hey. So I'm loving that rather dark/depressive mood of Requiems, but I was curious if anyone knows of any in English. I search on Google and all the results are about English translations of the text (which I've already looked at). So does anyone know of any? Thanks in advance.
  5. Today's Composers
    I'm probably on the wrong board for this so I apologize in advance, but I'm in dire need of some help here. I'm self-taught in music theory. I was originally going to get a degree in music composition, but changed my mind considering the odds of me being able to land a job in the market...
  6. Orchestral Music
    Hey Haven't really discussed with people about composing orchestral/classical music from inside a DAW. My personal decision has been FL Studio with my productions and so far i have only made Orchestral Dubstep or Electro House but i am starting to lean forward into making only orchestral since...
  7. Classical Music Discussion
    I realized that I simply love to listen to late works of composers and for me they are more profound and are highlights of their musical styles: it's true for a majority of composers. Schubert's late sonatas,messe in Es-Dur, Haydn London symphonies, R. Strauss 4 last songs, Brahms chamber...
  8. Today's Composers
    I have begun to post some compositions on SoundCloud. I would appreciate your comments.
  9. Orchestral Music
    Can anyone help with recommendations for Schoenberg recordings? It can be orchestral music, but also his vocal compositions. What are your favourite Schoenberg recordings? Thank you for help and recommendations :)

    My name is Jaron Deming! I just recently joined the forum to see what the classical community is up to these days. I am a freshman majoring in Music Ed. this year, and I've played the flute for 10 years. Lately I've been working on my compositions skills and have developed a passion for creating...
  11. Classical Music Discussion
    Well I think we can all agree that some of the best melodists of all time were Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Saint-Saens, Mendelssohn, (I would include Haydn), and from the looks of previous posts, many of you would also say Schumann, Rachmaninoff, Beethoven, Brahms, and some Wagner and Puccini...

    Hi Everyone, I am wondering if anyone here has an opinion on the compositions notated by Rosemary Brown. With only a small sampling of the 600+ compositions available it isn't easy to form an estimate. I find this one to be quite interesting. And, also, this one: Mvh, Michael

    I'm not asking what his best/worst works were, or what you're favorite compositions are, but what do think were some of Mozart's best and worst melodies of any genre? And give the specific movement and theme number. (Difficult, I know, because that was one of his strongest areas, but if you had...

    A new BBC video. "From the Inuit, 'Sila' translates as the breath of the world, and is the most recent in a series of outdoor, modular compositions that will be touring the US, and the world, this year." I'm allergic to JLA, but others might be interested in watching...

    I recently listened to Edgard Varese's Ameriques and was pretty impressed by it; I later learned that it was actually his first opus (although not necessarily the first piece he wrote). That got me wondering, are there any Op. 1's that are surprisingly outstanding? I do also really like...

    Hi, I'm a new member to this forum, I thought this would be a good idea to see what other people experiences are in finding outlets for there original music compositions. When I say "outlet" I specifically mean orchestras playing your music. Has anyone had any luck finding a music director or...

    To be honest, some of these don't even seem to be music. For example, the score of "Piano Piece for David Tudor #3" consists of the sentence "Most of them were very old grasshoppers." Compositions: 1960, #10 is "Draw a straight line and follow it." And then there's Compositions: 1960, #13...

    Hello everyone. I really enjoy hearing music making use of exotic scales, such as the Phrygian Dominant scale, and other gypsy scales. But I'm having a difficult time finding instrumental music that makes use of these types of scales. I suppose it's music you'd hear in like Aladdin, because it's...

(3 for each) 3. From a compositional standpoint, such as theory-wise, etc..., what do you feel are...
