This page contains all the songs I composed “or in some other word; songs I wrote!“. Some of them are Arranged by Nawa Mukerji, by “arrangement” we mean any musical piece that was composed by someone else rather than me and I have worked on them to either orchestrate them, or to reduce them to piano version, or I was involved in any corrections (specially for manuscript compositions).

 SWEET SONATA

Sweet Sonata

Sweet Sonata is a one movement Sonata for Piano in the key of C Major. It was composed based on Sonata form in classical genre with a little bit of modification. When I was studying Classical forms back in 2008, I decided to compose a Sonata of my own, then I decided to compose a Sonatina, but later on I made the Development longer than usual in Sonatina, so it formed itself back to Sonata. I finished composing it in September 2008 but in October 2014 I revised both of them.

SURREAL PORTRAIT OF A RONDO

Surreal Portrait of a Rondo

I composed it back in 2010 willing to participate it in the Tchaikovsky Conservatory Composer’s competition. But then late I changed the plan.

KURDISH FOLK DANCES IN A MODERN WAY

Kurdish Folk Dances in a modern way Dance No.1

Kurdish folk dances in a modern way is an album of 5 pieces for piano. However the third and fifth one were originally composed for 2 pianos. But I reduced the third one for a solo version. But the fifth one is still for two pianos. But on the orchestration version the fifth one is for a solo piano and orchestra (which was the main idea from the beginning). Also I orchestrated all the five dances.

Their genres varied from Classical to contemporary. The second and the fifth one are based on two Kurdish themes, the second one is a Kurdish folk song named “Çen ciwane” and the fifth one is based on a Hawrami folk song (popularized by a Kurdish singer named Hama Qutu). Even thou the name “Kurdish folk dances” doesn’t really apply to the first, third and fourth one as the entire composition are mine. But their themes are composed based on Kurdish popular music aesthetics. The composition of these pieces took me ages to finish, especially the fifth one.
