Here is my most recent composition for the piano -- well, the first draft at least. 

It's a fifth in a collection of piano pieces I have been working on since.... 2019? 

I started working on the first section of the piece mostly on the piano, but after that I have composed the rest on MuseScore3 and have yet to properly try it out on the piano since -- ideas running wild. 

I'm not considering it completed just yet, so I'm open to some criticisms or suggestions on it. 

Here is the link to the mp3: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Cd2dLS_aaF48xRWIDnvuimi9ordHb2pu/view?usp=sharing

I've attached the score to this post.

  • Good morning Samuel,

    Congrats on putting together a piece of this length that coheres. Pleasant to listen to.

    My only observation - just my views though so by all means take no notice - the opening L.H. figure seemed overused. At first I felt the piece would follow in the minimalist style but it would have evolved differently. The variation by extension that came in in bar 33 was welcome. You return in bar 238 with the basic figuration but start to add a melody that takes off in 254, having introduced that D maj figure. To repeat just my view but that could have started earlier.

    The middle section: Nice. You didn't include all the dynamics in the score but it led to a good build-up, brought back by the recap in bar 238.

    All good. It held my interest but by the ending I think I'd heard that L.H figure perhaps too much.

    All good wishes,

    Dane.

  • Hello there, Dane. 

    Thank you so much for listening to my piece and also for your feedback. 
    Hahahaha it seems that I may have pounded on the L.H. figure far too many times. I have received feedback elsewhere regarding that, too, particularly when it makes a come back with the D maj figure. I'll most likely let it sit for a while. I am considering tweaking areas involving the L.H. figures. 

    In any case, thank you so much, for your feedback!

    Best regards,

    Sam
