and then I have to write an orchestral piece for school coursework, but after that, I'll finish my string quartet and maybe start my next big orchestral piece, which will be highly philosophical. :)
I have a title for that one: The sound of a tree falling in an empty forest. There will be a lot of wooden mallets in this one ;)

I like that very much, Karlo!!!! One of the movements perhaps. I intend this to be a work I work on for a number of years so it's going to be my first 'big big' piece. :)

Listening to the first of my Sinfonietta Miniature and realising that subconsciously when the piccolo solo takes over, the harmony resembles almost exactly one of my favourite bits from Mahler 9! Perhaps a subtle musical RIP to Abbado....

I'm sure you won't hear the sound of one hand clapping after the premiere  :P

Sounds great!  (which bit?)
Now, listen to some DSCH symphonies for inspiration ;)

I see that the last time I posted here I had just started my 'Sinfonietta'. Glad to report that this piece won the first ever Gareth Walters Composition Prize at Junior Royal Academy of Music, adjudicated by Robert Saxton (Resident Composer at Oxford), and was performed by the Contemporary Music Ensemble there conducted by my teacher, Matthew Taylor.

Thank you for the bump!

I am writing a viola concerto, everyone! Two movements down and honestly think it's the best thing I've done... I'll be conducting the premiere in winter with my orchestra, and the soloist is Alinka Rowe, principal violist of our National Youth Orchestra!
