Samples of My Music

On popular demand, here are some sound files of some of my music. You may listen to them, download them, and share them as you wish.

The orchestra is the Garritan Personal Orchestra, a digital one played by a computer. Not as good as a real performance, but surprisingly good.

If anyone records a good real performance of any of my pieces, I will be happy to post the sound files here. Contact me by email.


String Quartets

I wrote a pile of chamber music that was performed by many people at coffee houses, weddings, restaurants, and so on. This music was meant to be light entertainment. A book of quartets is now available.[Graziano, MSA (2012) Five String Quartets, Quercus Press.]

Symphony 4 is called “A Child’s Symphony” because it is an arrangement of music I composed between the ages of 8 and 13. It is very strange. The organization is twisty and wrong, like an alien intelligence trying to see its way into music for the first time. I like that aesthetic, and so turned the music into a symphony of its own.
