Waltz for Flute and Piano


Author Comments

Hi all! It's been a long time since I've posted anything, so I'm digging through my folders of unreleased music to see if there is anything worth posting. There are loads of pieces that I wrote while studying composition at the local music conservatory. I never released them because they are pretty different than everything else on my page. They were assignments to develop my classical technique, a pretty far cry from the sentimental piano, jazz, and video game inspired tunes that I've released over the years.

To be honest, my desire to compose music was basically crushed over the last few years. There was a while when I was going to school full time, working nearly full time, and experiencing a whole lot of difficult life and financial circumstances on top of it all. It got to the point that making music was no longer joyful. Instead it caused a massive amount of anxiety for me. I graduated and stopped writing altogether, got a corporate job and began working up to 80 hours per week to pay off my student loans.

I'm trying to rediscover my joy for composing and to rebuild my musical self-esteem. I'm starting that process by releasing the tracks that I wrote while in conservatory. May as well stop overthinking it and just get them out into the world so I can move on. I'm not going to work too much on polishing them in terms of audio. They mostly exist as MIDI and Finale files. I don't have access to my fancy music software, as my desktop computer is currently in storage. Instead I'm going going to dump these MIDIs into FL Studio and use the basic sound libraries that I have on my potato of a laptop.

That said, here is the first track! Hope that you enjoy.

It's wonderful to hear your music again Sir!!

I like the melodic content and instrumental palette. The majesty of the flute contrasts nicely with the heavier oom-pah-pah pattern in the piano. The composition is overall pretty simplistic, but the ornamentations on the melodies later on help keep things interesting. Thanks for sharing this, even if the time and passion you have to devote to composition has waned recently. Hope to hear more from you soon! ^_^

The bass in the piano and the treble sound like two different instruments, really. The flute is so nice and fluid.
