Selected Works 2013-2018: Notenheft – Lead Sheets
EMIL BRANDQVIST – SELECTED WORKS 2013 – 2018
15 Highlights of composer Emil Brandqvist, all songs known as played by his trio on the first 4 albums.
Thank you for your interest in this booklet of sheet music and your interest in my compositions. What could be more inspiring to a composer than the fact that a musician is interested in playing your works ?
This booklet presents songs that I composed for my trio during the last 5 years-
When I write music for my trio I always have the sound of the piano in my head, even though I’m not a pianist. So, to be honest, I can’t play these songs on the piano myself, but that’s also the big thing about it: to hear my ideas of a certain sound in someone else’s hands. That’s amazing !
When I compose, I love to arrange and mix my trio music with different instruments and sounds on a quest for new sound worlds that make the music something new.
I would also like to send a big thank you to my dear friend and pianist Tuomas A. Turunen for helping me transcribe my scores for piano players !
Feel free to play the music on the piano, in a group, or make your new sound worlds using these ideas as a starting point.
I hope this booklet is able to inspire you to keep on building in your own world of sounds !
