Here we have it – my first original creation. This piano concerto is set in Classical style like Mozart or Beethoven, but with many Romantic characteristics (which I hope to build on with later compositions). This first movement took me two years to finish (1999-2001). Overall, I’d say the style of this movement resembles Hummel closest, even though that wasn’t my intent. It is rather long, and as this is the conductor’s score, and to cut down on length, the cadenza near the end is not included. It has the same basic structure as a Mozart or Beethoven concerto.

This movement of the concerto was premiered on April 15, 2010 at the University of Idaho, with myself playing the piano, together with a volunteer student orchestra. (Thanks guys!) An mp3 of the recital has been attached.

If you are interested in having this concerto performed by a full orchestra, e-mail me and I’ll send you the parts for another $12.50. Also, feel free to leave comments!

Note that I also have a 2-piano study score version, which might be handier for pianists and others who don’t wish to buy the entire orchestral score. (See "Associated scores")

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
