"If a composer could say what he had to say in words he would not bother trying to say it in music."
Gustav Mahler

Welcome to my catalogue of compositions! My name is Alga and I'm 15 years old. I play both the piano and the clarinet and I'm a member of Northamptonshire County Youth Orchestra, Northamptonshire County Youth Concert Band, Northamptonshire County Clarinet Choir and NSB Symphonic Winds.

Music has pretty much always been with me. I started learning the piano at the age of 4 and to be honest, I was pretty bad so I only got up 2ish grades in 5-6 years. I also started learning the clarinet at school from the age of 8/9. Back then music was merely a hobby, it was more like lunchtime water polo or badminton, not a passion. My passion for music developed at around 10 years old: I had changed teachers and started to show a lot of potential in piano which also boosted my clarinet playing somewhat. I loved classical and romantic era music, favourites being Beethoven and Chopin; I learnt to feel emotion behind music and 'visualise' it, I learnt to listen carefully to individual instrument parts from an orchestral piece playing on the radio. Rather quickly I acquired a good ear and imagination.

Here you will find my compositions. I compose primarily for solo piano though I am working on several clarinet pieces (solo and ensemble) as well as a hopeful orchestral piece.


Current projects:

"Ocean Waves" - Calm/serene pieces, probably most similar to Yiruma's style.

"Yumi" - Think Studio Ghibli.


Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you enjoy my compositions!
