Dear friends,as many of you already know, I'm a violist, too. And I love to perform contemporary works, although I haven't had yet many opportunities like this in my life. I've decided to do a…Continue

Pastoral Sonatina for clarinet and piano

Started this discussion. Last reply by Mariza Costa-Cabral Dec 13, 2015. 2 Replies

Today I've got a few ideas for work for a wind instrument ... at first, I thought this might be for an oboe, but somehow it transfigured to the piece for clarinet and piano. Mainly it is about my…Continue

"Very clever!  If you'd said the recording was all Sibelius I was going to ask how you did that too, nice piece."

"Hi Filip, This is quite nice! Lovely and affecting. I particularly enjoyed the harmony and the way you build excitement. At times Ravel came to mind, although I don't think it's imitative of Ravel. Well done! Gav"

"After Walt Whitman" piano cycle

A few days ago someone took a look on my previously uploaded piano piece here which inspired me to write something new for this glorious instrument since I don't feel really able to work with it. I've already done some things that consist of one or more pianos (Concerto, Quintet and some orchestral works) but not as a pure soloist. I took Ravel and Janáček as my examples for this because I simply adore works by these genius composers.After Walt Whitman will be a cycle of short piano pieces…See More

"Very nice job, I enjoyed this.  It's short and mellow but has some neat rhythmic and melodic elements that catch my attention.  I understand you are working within the definition of a 'nocturne' but this makes me want some…"
