Musical Compositions

Welcome to my music page! Collected here are my compositions from middle school up until the present. Naturally, I have gone through many, many changes in my style. The early pieces you find here (e.g. Symphony No. 10) are rather primitive; I have decided to include everything here, bad and good.

All songs 2001-2009 Justin Lo unless they are based on existing songs. Feel free to download for personal listening or analysis, but ask permission before distributing and always use my name in conjunction with them.

MP3s - Recordings and GPO (Finale 2008 output)
068 Violin Concerto No. 68
I envisioned this piece to be for violin and orchestra. Due to limited resources, I recorded it at my recital for violin and piano with my gracious and altruistic friend and fellow composer, Thomas. I think that the human element is best for recordings, but to get an idea for how I would hear this piece in my mind, you can listen to the first three minutes of the first movement played from my score through Finale GPO. May 2008

Violin and Piano: [Mvt I] [Mvt II] [Mvt III]
Violin and Orchestra (GPO), first three minutes: [Mvt I]

306 String Quartet No. 6 "Les Quatres Elements"
Please request MP3s by e-mail/chat. Mar 2007

307 String Quartet No. 7 (GPO)
A quick (1.5 hour) effort to record a state of mind. Really simple compared to the previous quartet. Sept 2008
[Mvt I]

308 Trio for Violin, Flute, and Piano (GPO)
I wrote this with the idea of having a chamber group with my girlfriend and her mom, but I never completed the finale because she wanted a cello part which I couldn't add after the fact. Nov 2008
[Mvt I] [Mvt II] [Mvt III - missing the coda]

309 Romance in A Major (GPO)
Another piece for my girlfriend, a violin and piano duet. The solo line incorporates a lot of improvisatory ornamentation which I sometimes change when I play it myself. July 2009

510 Untitled Song in a Pop-Jazz style. Sept 2009

901 Tranquil Ripples
A piece I wrote in memory of my late grandfather. Performed by me with my friend Jennifer on piano, who mastered the piece while I was frantically finishing the score at the same time.


MIDIs
Prior to switching to Finale 2008, I used Rhapsody and Finale 2003 which only supported MIDI output. I personally love the MIDI format because the file is so small, and moreover you can extract the score (i.e. sheet music) from them. But alas, no one sequences MIDIs anymore for current songs, which is a pity. Of course, GPO is a godsend if you can figure out how to use it meaningfully!
