My own String Quartet - PDF, and recording by JSQ #1268465

Hello all,

Have not been on Piano World in a while, nice to see you all again. I've been doing lots of work at school, as a music major at Adelphi University (Sophomore year). I'm doubling as a composition, and piano performance major. Last year, the Jupiter String Quartet came to Adelphi University to have a Composition Workshop. They came, worked on the piece, and recorded their performance. This will go on every year, until my senior year when I will have a completely recorded string quartet.

So here it is!

Some notes: the piece uses my name "Matthew Bosch" in it's musical translation. (Eb, A, B, E) -> Matthew (Bb, Eb, C, B) - > Bosch...similar to DSCH (Dimitri Shostakovitch). This seemed to be one negative feed back from my professor, that my musical name was too similar to Shostakovitch's. But I plan on hiding it more in other movements.

Any way... enough talking, down to business...

Leave some feedback!

Fantastic! Best thing I've heard here. Very well done.

I wouldn't change a thing, just keep writing.

Bravo! I see in this a little bit of shostakovich musically as well!

Could you explain that name musical translation?
BTW: it's awesome; it's like a post-apocalyptic cry of despair. if that made sense. lol

By musical translation, he means he made a motive out of the letters of his name that have musical equivalents:

Matthew Bosch = AHE BSCH (In German, H is B-natural, B is Bb, and S is "Es" or E-flat.) I'm not sure where he got that first Eb from. smile

Hi Matthew -

I liked this a lot - great job!

A couple things to watch out for, notation-wise:

1. show the beats on your syncopations. For example, bar 12 in the viola would be a little easier to read if the Eb's were two tied eighth-notes. Just a good habit to be in.

2. Spelling/use less naturals. Since this is a post-tonal piece, you don't have to use particular accidentals. The opening melody in Violin I could use D#'s instead of Eb's, making it much easier to read! Just another healthy habit. smile
