Compositions 6/12/12

Since I was fourteen I’ve been composing (classical style) music. Most of it is for piano because I never expected that I would ever hear anything of mine written for orchestra, so why bother. Recently I acquired “Sibelius”music-writing software that provides quite good playback of all sorts of instrumental sounds, so I’ve started writing more things for various instrumental combinations.

These “performances” are computer-generated rather than being performances by actual musicians. They lack the subtleties that a good interpretation would provide.


All of this music is copyrighted and may not be performed or reproduced in any manner or form without written permission from the composer.



This is my latest. All brass. Something completely different for me.

      Dwight, I am so proud of you. I closed my eyes and cleared my mind and listened to the compositions enjoying each one. Amelia’s Question was my favorite. Hope you don’t mind if I send it off to Japan for John and his family to listen to. I know they will enjoy it.

      They finally found an English speaking piano teacher for the kids, and they all like him.

      I’ll be looking for more. Jack

      Dwight—I like your String quartette and Lyric piece.
      They are interesting. Thanks for sharing. Ginny

      It took me a while to figure out how to get to the page, but I must say it was well worth the time. I cannot seem to choose any one composition. They are all wonderful. Keep up the good work.

    5. “Fanfare and Celebration” made me wonder how I could play this little snippet at my celebratory party when I win the primary race for State Representative. Can’t help it. I’m an inveterate optimist. That’s because, if I lose, I just need to shift gears. This piece seemed to have a touch of whimsy about it, too. Loved it. Loved all of them.

      “Serenade for Jane” put me in mind of a field of wild flowers which made me think of Jane and her style of decorating. Made me cry a bit because of its loveliness. Thought it could/ should be named: “Serenade of Jane.”

      “Amelia’s Questions” is charming and lifts the spirits. I’m sure I’ve heard that one before.

      Your “Sonata in E Minor” was, for me, full of nostalgia. Took me back to the many, many times as a youngster that I listened to classical records with you as well as your own compositions on the back porch at Beachwood Blvd. This brought tears, too.

      I notice that you only compose one piece every three years. How come?
      Your ‘little’ sister.

      I have tried to listen to this twice and I cannot seem to get it to work. Maybe I am doing something wrong. Help.

      Dwight: I finally got to hear your composition and I really enjoyed it. I am not a musical officiato, but It really sounded great. You have to put it together with more and have it as a full whatesver they call those things. I did enjoy it.
