Dear All,

I would like to introduce my new piano piece, which is under creation. I would like to ask for some ida, how to improve it.

Currently I repeated the first section. In the future I would like to make more interesting arpeggios and some other variation in the repeated section.

I think this piece will be based on this theme but with different variations.

Laszlo,

I can certainly hear the Chopin influence in this though it is not enough to sound like you were trying to imitate him. It felt far more like a waltz than a nocturne to me, not only because of the 3/4 meter and left hand pattern but the melody and harmonic progression itself. That's not a criticism though as titles are only titles in the end. Since you asked about variation, it may seem obvious but I would very strongly recommend studying the modulations in Chopin's waltzes and nocturnes or his preludes to see how he was so expertly able to develop even his simpler pieces.

Thank you for your response. I changed the title to waltz , because I think you're right. I played Chopin pieces and this style is very close to me, this piece was born few days ago spontaneous and I heard Chopin in it a little as well :) But I wouldn't like to imitate him, this is really my music with a little inspiration.

Instead of playing the root note followed by the same inversion twice, you could play the root an octave lower, then inject a different chord that leads into the inversion on beat 3 to give more flow and interest to the left hand accompaniment
.

Thank you! I will try, the first thing was the same when I listened to my music yesterday evening too. So I will try something like you have mentioned. Somewhere in the middle I have already tried it.
