Welcome to the music website of Steve Marlow (aka Steve David Marlow).
For my music compositions, my mission is to create quality music that is original, accessible and imaginative.
In the summer of 2016, two of my orchestral compositions (‘The Citadel’ and ‘A Mystery’) were recorded for Ablaze records, played by the highly respected Brno Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Mikel Toms.
I am very pleased that saxophonist Nicholas Phillips has recently uploaded recordings of “An Autumn day” and “A Winter’s Morning”, with piano backing tracks played by Oscar Espinoza. There are other versions of these compositions available for various combinations of solo instrument and piano.
I’ve uploaded my own performance of ‘Tango’, the second movement from my Suite in 4 Movements for Saxophone Quartet. For this recording I played all 4 parts on Alto Sax then used audio editing to achieve the transpositions for soprano, tenor and baritone parts. I’m now working on similar recordings for the other three movements.
“Train Ticket to the Sunset” is a piece written for string orchestra lasting about 4 minutes and evoking a classic train journey. This is also yet to be performed by a real string orchestra.
‘Unleash the Finale’ is an alternative version of the Finale from the Saxophone Quartet Suite, performed on alto saxophone plus a backing track of virtual instruments.
On my Enigma page, I put forward a new theory to challenge the established theories regarding Elgar’s ‘Enigma Variations’ riddle.
