I have a project that spans the divide between Maths and Music: The Relationship between Mathematics and Musical Temperament covering the origins of musical intonation and its basis in Mathematics.
Here are all my A-Level Music compositions. Now available for your listening, the quality of the recording depends on your sound card as the music is in Midi format.
|♫ Allegro in D Major||N. Hearle||3:10||First composition for A-Level, a slightly weird string trio|
|♫ Intermezzo||N. Hearle||2:59||Modern piano piece, improvised around a pedal note|
|♫ The Chimney Sweeper||N. Hearle||4:28||Slow song, based on a poem by William Blake|
|♫ Minuet||N. Hearle||4:33||Piano minuet which should sound in the style of Haydn|
|♫ Prelude in A||N. Hearle||3:50||An inside-out version of Bach’s first Prelude in D|
|♫ Purim Song||N. Hearle||2:32||A very tedious little piece, please don’t listen to it|
From 1999 – 2000, here are some piano pieces that I know or currently learning at the time.

|♫ Moderato Hob. XVI/36 in C sharp Minor||Haydn||The lively first movement of the sonata|
|♫ Grave Op. 13 in C Minor (Pathetique)||Beethoven||I enjoy playing the Rondo movement|
|♫ Romanze II in F sharp Major||Schumann||Moving piece of music (high volume needed)|
|♫ Intermezzo in E, Op. 116, No. 6||Brahms||Illustrates rich vocal lines within piano music|
Below are two examples of some of my music coursework for A-Level. The first is a based on a two-part Suite in A minor for flute and strings by Telemann using the original figuring.
The second example shows three variations on a ground base originally written by Blow.
