Instrumentation is:
 
Flute, Oboe, Clarinet in Bb,
Horn, Trumpet, Trombone,
Harp, Celesta,
Violin, Viola, Cello, Double Bass.

(It is really me)

Wrote a thing for cello, quite boring honestly.

I'm working on adding a viola and a violin part to make a string trio out of it, it's turning much more interesting.

I feel like there is something interesting in there but it's just not suited to the sounds you're using. I would be happy to take a look at rendering this piece, all I need is the individual MIDI tracks for each instrument and some notes (with times) regarding tempo and dynamic changes, articulations etc.

Should work very nicely with actual players, well done!

I'm writing a quartet for flute, clarinet, horn and double bass. I think it's going to be from simple to complex. If you are curious, this is how the little thing is doing, it only has two sections by now. Hope a real hornist can also deal with the jumps!

Haven't really progressed with the aforementioned quartet much but I did composed a pretty little thing (Bagatelle being used just as a dismissive title) for string quartet entirely by ear.

Very nice, nothing to dismiss about it.

Another rather sketchy little thing I've written before I work into something more thorough.

Hi Uhor,

Your work has a very cinematic feel, most of the pieces could work well in film, by that I mean they seem to have a narrative.  I like the unusual tonality, it's never jarring and unnecessarily aggressive.

Regards
Mark

I like this piece! What really works is the use of ever-changing density. No long, boring, serial solo cadenzas, rather harmonies melding into other harmonies. Well-done.

I wrote a little duet for Oboe and Viola, not really the best of me and quite rough in places but at least it's something finished.
