Dirk Tomandl Compositions
Dueling Dancers, Piano (2020)
This original piano composition is an almost 5 minutes long mysterious, romantic, dramatic, virtuosic, passionate, and expressive piece in beautiful late romantic-era style.
Imagine two opponents that are circling around each other, suspicious, curious, yet attracted to each other.
Charming Smile, Piano (2020)
Please enjoy this original piano composition in beautiful late romantic-era style inspired by Frederic Chopin! It is a nice little piece, happy, virtuous and emotionally expressive. Its charm makes me smile 😊
'Für Elise': New Story, New Music, Piano (2020)
Please enjoy this original piano composition in beautiful late romantic-era style! It is a 3 1/2 minutes long re-telling of Beethoven's "Für Elise" theme. In contrast to the original, this time there is a happy ending:
It starts with a gentle, heartfelt love letter, then rejection, drama, emotional roller-coaster, until the two hearts find each other in major with a happy waltz, ... and a gentle kiss.
'Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon', Piano for four Hands (2020)
Please enjoy this original piano composition for four hands. Imagine a Sunday afternoon with the sun shining gently and warm through the window. You and someone close are having a fun and relaxed time playing beautiful music together at the piano.
'Happy Prancing', Piano (2020)
Please enjoy this original piano composition in beautiful late romantic-era style inspired by Sergei Rachmaninoff with a few hints of Frederic Chopin! It is a short, happy little piece, virtuous and expressive. I imagined a playful show-off who wants to impress - in a gentle, fun way.
Playful Passion, Piano Concerto No. 1 (2021)
"Playful Passion" is a 21-minute-long piano concerto in one movement. It is melodic, sensual, emotional, loving, gentle, warm, dramatic, intense, storytelling, visual, playful, passionate and has a lot of dialogs. It is inspired by a short, lesser-known melody written by Freddie Mercury.
It describes the journey of love from its gentle beginnings of getting to know each other, falling in love, the waves of getting close, passion, and slowing down, drama, until the epic climax and closure.
