This piece begins with a very dark mood and continues development with a heroic motif. At the conclusion of that phrase, a seemingly playful dance is heard before being taken over by the stomping march of darkness.
The Hebrides is a popular composition by Mendelssohn originally written for strings, double woodwinds, 2 natural horns, 2 trumpets, and 2 timpani. I felt like the fire of the beast within the cave could benefit from a more ferocious instrumentation so I rewrote the ending theme with an extensive instrumentation.
This is a demonstration of how quickly I can produce orchestral scores. This composition was named as it is because it was written from start to finish - including all notation - within a day.
This was an entry for the PTA Reflections contest. The theme was "The world would be a better place if..." and I decided to illustrate how music can make everything better. The battle between harsh dissonances and harmonic melodies symbolize the good of music.
This is a slow piece for a woodwind quartet with little musical development thorughout the piece but maintains a calm mood without being repetitive.
