Hi!
I orchestrated a piano piece I wrote in the beginning of this year and thought I would share it here. Here is the link to the piano version:

A very nice piece of work for both media. There is a strong hint of Schostakowitsch in the orchestral version which is very effective. Is this going to be part of a suite or of some ballet music? It has real possibilities. As a "post-tonal" composer - not my description of myself but that of a musicologist/critic - it is good to hear music by others that like to prove that tonality is still alive and kicking, even if not in the way it did a century or more ago.

Thank you for sharing this piece.

Fred.

I agree there is much of Shostakovich in both versions, and I pick up a little Mussorgsky too, especially in the slow middle section. Question: is the title "The Lost Child" or "A Searching Child"?
All the best,
Ron

Yes, it's a part of a suite. I orchestrated already some of the parts of my piano suite called "Moments". You can hear them on my website:

Still some more work to do before it's finished though.

I changed the title in The Lost Child for the orchestrated version, I'm going to make the change as well for the other arrangements, it feels better than the Searching Child.

Because I made 4 different arrangements of my piano piece "The Lost Child", I thought it would be interesting to share them here. I put the original piano part at the bottom of every score for comparison.

Here are the links to the files:

Thanks Daniel! Always great to hear this. Still hoping to get it performed by a real orchestra.

Andre:

It is a nice piece--pleasant listening and you try to make a point.

If you are schooled in orchestration-- you can set your version down on paper rather tha nusing this electronicmedia which always sound too tinny to these educated ears. Many ofyou use thecmputer to give a indicaion of or an approximation of the orchestrated piece.

I prefer th orchestrationt of Ravelian quality se down on paper--and let the chip fall where they may--if you are good the creme will rise to the top of the bottle. How you work to construct an orchestration? Well you use all the tools available to you--but i do not much care for a computerized rendering---perhaps in your country there is a small chamber --or amateur chamber orchestra that can render this work --a private reading if you will- on to a CD--nothing commerical here as yet-- it is all just for my entertainment and edification. Also I prefer you respond direct to sideroadgold@yahoo.com--- it is a five minute work--I have a professional quality piano score and more importantly my rendering of my composition on piano--all easily downloadable.
