In school we had to write concertos in A Minor in groups. I hate having to compose in groups so I did it myself. Everyone had to use instruments in the group so I was stuck with two pianos, two violins and one clarinet. Having only a week and a half to write it, it's very small, only a couple of minutes long and is still missing the 3rd movement. I was still reasonably pleased with it so I just wanted to know what people here thought of it.

You can find the two movements here.

(N.B. I made this version on the computer and the synthesized sounds sound a little bit funny.)

Well, I like. First I thought "Tango!", then for a second I thought "Tetris!" but then I stopped thinking and listened more, both movements, and although it might not go down in history as your Magnum Opus, I like, and am impressed. I'd be interested in hearing 3rd movement, especially mounted into the same file so I dont have to suffer buffer issues and a cak internet supplier.

With all due respect, it would sound great as a theme to an antihero/suspense style funny cartoon character, of the caped-walks-in-the-shadows variety ...

It certainly does have the feel of a score to a 1920's black and white film. I can just imagine Nosferatu gliding up the stairs to the first movement. I think I prefer the first to the second, but that might be due to the length: the first one gives you more time to get into it.

Both are very good, and I hope you get a decent grade for them!

The hard drive of my old computer went a couple of months ago, with it, all my compositions. I now need this one and the only memory I have left of it is what is on the website. Oddly, when I tried to play it, it only plays the beginning. I was wondering, does this happen with everyone else? For example, on the first movement, did you reach the part where the top of the piano has a very fast 'running' section or does it stop after the original theme is introduced? And if you are able to get the whole piece, is there any chance of you sending it to me so that I can notate it again?
