for Cello Solo

I wrote a solo for the cello for the first time.
This may be very difficult for the cellist.
I am glad to get advice by the person familiar with cello.



Orchestral work

I wrote the orchestral works.

However, I do not know much about orchestra. There will be strange place, and how to write amateurish in this score.

I do not think that this work is actually played.

But to write the score of the orchestra became studying for me.

Just took a listen through all of your play list and enjoyed it.  I especially enjoyed "Gear" and its rhythms.    I think from hearing these that the piece you might most connect with from my own is the Memoir #4 Violin and synthesizer duet which was actually written in 1979/80   If you didn't hear it I'd enjoy hearing your reaction.

Thanks for the positive feedback on my music! Really enjoying your stuff as well, especially Genesis of Time. Keep up the great writing!

Thank you for listening and for your comments. I'll gladly accept the loose label of "neoclassicism." My first and perhaps strongest influence was Stravinsky--all of his work/genres.

Thanks for the comments about my music.  I'll listen to yours soon!

Fluid soundfont on this page:
good for all orchestral instruments except woodwinds (okay I guess with full chorusing).
