"Hi Randy, Here are a few remarks/observations by having a quick look at the score and a quick audition: If parts in Violins 1 & 2 are to play divisi I would assign different voices to them with up stems for part 1 and down stems for part 2 so…"

"This piece was intended for two string orchestras but I just compressed it into a single string orchestra score (so there is no real unison). I was also expecting string players to pluck the strings while still holding the bow to bypass the lack of…"

A Celestial Fantasy: Impressions of the Night Sky for String Orchestra

This is my first string orchestra piece that I have attempted (also for double string orchestra), and I finished it after two weeks. This can be played by one or two orchestras, and I might have this piece played by my school's string orchestra. Almost the entire piece is played in legato. My favorite part of this entire piece is Section I.Here's a sentence of what I feel from this piece: A flow of swirls and magic fill me with warmth, love, relaxation, passion, and a desire to gaze at the…See More

Randy Kim replied to Fabian Frost's discussion Franz Liszt
"Liszt was a very interesting composer; there's a reason why he's also one of my favorite composers (maybe 4th-5th). He does have plenty of "show off" pieces (like Hungarian Rhapsodies No.2 and No.6, as well as his etudes) …"

"Thanks for the response, and I'm glad you liked it. That section in the 2nd and 3rd movements is also my favorite part overall. I see what you mean by adding that final note at 8:17, but I added that ending because I felt as though a single…"

Em Coston replied to Randy Kim's discussion A Korean Celebration (Piano Sonata No. 1)
"Hi Randy. There are some really nice moments in this piece. I am particularly fond of a lot of what's between 3:09 and 8:17 due to the continuous adding of interest in this part. For me, that section could stand alone, if only a single final…"

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.
Hi, I'm an amateur composer who has been composing since spring of 2017. As a high school student, I have been playing piano for 11-12 years and clarinet for 6 years. I use Musescore to compose my music.

I enjoy a variety of classical music, which ranges from the Romantic era to modern day classical music (though I'm not a huge fan of serialism nor atonality). Impressionistic or ethereal music from Ravel, Rautavaara, or Yoshimatsu speak out to me tremendously.

I currently compose piano pieces, but I plan to expand my grasp to concert band and orchestral compositions as I develop myself.
