Organ Fantasy VI : Pseudo Perpetuum Mobile

Recently, I revisited Tallis's Lament. I've been stuck on it for days, one of those strange funks where you've got something on a loop and can't seem to stop listening to it.

Anyway, although this music is in no way explicitly related to Tallis's work, outside of the fact that he's had a profound impact as a composer on my writing, somehow I suspect his lament has inspired or influenced the work presented here, in some nebulous way.

Speaking of matters…

Tango variations no. 2

And hete is some electronic music inspired by milonga dance. It´s just too fast so I named it "Supersonic Milonga".

Tango variations no. 1

These days I listened too much tango music and tried to mix it with some other music genres. This is my view on classical string quartet spiced with a pinch of drums playing gentle almost-tango (or pseudotango).

Fugue in A Polymodal

I had to turn right around and write another fugue, otherwise the first item, and in all likelihood the last, heard on my Soundcloud stream would be Ferneyhough's Boogie Voogie.

Well it seemed a good enough excuse. This, like so many of my more recent writings, is a mixture of Ionian, Aeolian, and Phrygian modes, as well as a few others with glances at chromaticism as well. With no bridge, close imitation often in stretto, this is a structurally archaic style of fugue adorned with…

Europa Prelude and Fugue

After a hiatus of a couple of years, I thought to work out this double fugue. What better way to get into the swing of things than an intensive excursion into double counterpoint, and while it's a crucial technique in "standard" fugues and inventions, it's an almost perpetual necessity in the double fugue. There's an urgency in the mechanics of the writing which translates into a good deal of forward momentum in the resulting…

My thought for today - piano compositions?

As much as I enjoy and admire great musicians performing on piano I simply do not usually equate complete composition as being solely performed on one. So when someone posts a tune with the header: This for piano or That for piano I tend not to even bother listening.

Now it could be, the member posting said tune has no other way of providing a recording other than piano and in that case, I note that in recent times there seems little advice being given here in the forum on the basic…

English Folk Song Suite No.1 & American Folk Song Suite No.1

These have been published elsewhere on CF but I thought some members might be interested in (and perhaps comment on) the contrast and appeal of these two arrangements. The American piece has been improved somewhat thanks to Bob Porter's input, for which many thanks.
