Profile Information

What have you composed for? Or what medium do you work around?
What is your favorite genre or style of music?
I am without favourites, yet possessed by a strong affinity for the works of Franz Liszt
Is music your main income source?
No - Not at all.
Where do you live?
Stockholms län, Sverige
About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I have composed since about the age of two. First in the style of Bach - including fugues - and then later that of Mozart, and then finally with late romantic concepts and some experimentation in innovations of the 20th century.

I am also a pianist, and was so from approximately the same age. Starting points are hard to define when one grows up immersed in music.

Hi Michael,

I didn't see your comment until today. I've been reacquainting myself with this place by going through the member pages. Not all of course, just looking to see who looks interesting. I started at the beginning and have gotten as far as 2013. What have you been up to since we last spoke.

Michael, sorry it took me a while to respond.. I was unaware.. as i am new to this site.. My interest has been steadily  diminishing for PS as their seems to be a fixation, to my mind, surprisingly, on a very small time period of composition..Namely the Romantics… and the same old pieces mostly… and when someone finds a 'new forgotten gem' it is invariably from that same period.. Also, the youngsters appear to have mostly taken over with much silly banter… so…

Hello Michael, Nice to hear from you.I live in Tumba ( not Stockholm city), but I don´t think that people would know where this is, that´s why I wrote Stockholm.

Hi Everyone,

I found this recently obtained item for sharing to be an interesting example related to the discussion within the "not following the score" thread.

Here you will find thousands(?) of improvisations by pianist and composer Emile Naoumoff.

the music of John Carollo

Posted on March 18, 2015 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

For many years I have been an admirer of the music of John Carollo.  This link is to Anguish in Every Household (2010).  I find the music deeply moving and am sharing it here so that other composers who might enjoy it or find it interesting will get to hear it.
