Musical Interlude: Owen Maitzen, Original Compositions

For your weekend enjoyment, here is the premiere recording of my 12-year old son Owen’s composition “Moods,” a sonatina in three movements. He played it in the Kiwanis festival in the spring, receiving a rave review from the adjudicator–and no wonder.

And here’s his newest composition, with a nod to his Kiwanis adjudicator (and now occasional composition tutor) in the title.

    These are wonderful! Does Owen want to write for Open Letters?

  2. Rohan Maitzen says:

    Thanks, Sam! (And no, I’m sure not–music, not prose, is his form.)

  3. Colleen says:

    These are, indeed, wonderful. I’m particularly fond of the “Somber” part of the first.

  4. Rohan Maitzen says:

    Thanks, Colleen! I’ll pass that on to Owen. And “Somber” is my favourite part as well, though “What’s for Dinuk” is growing on me, it’s just so exuberant.

  5. Sarah Emsley says:

    Owen is amazing! What a pleasure to listen to these pieces. I think I like “Stubborn” the best.
