  • I enjoyed it . The recording wasn't too bad, either. Nice melody and triplets against duplets for variety. What would Chopin have done differently ? - some brief modulations and chords borrowed from a different key would have made the piece more like quality classical music, rather than the sort of "mood music" that might accompany a TV programme.
    • thanks for your time.tend to avoid key changes, because I cannot use them nicely,in a way they fit. at least I didn't know more about foreign chords etc when I wrote it...
  • I'm a giant Chopin fan, I like it, very nice!
  • Hi,

    I took a listen to your piece and I agree with Adrian. modulations of some kind (brief or otherwise) and some non diatonic harmonies would serve this piece well. I also think it would help if there was a kind of motivic idea flowing throughout the piece that would help to give it a sense of unity or fulfillment...doesn't have to be something grand really as this is a "petite" Nocturne.

    I don't know how much theory/harmony or scores you've studied but the more you do it will help spur your own sense or style of modulations and non diatonic harmonies.

    But, its a good piece. Definitely moody with lots of potential :)
    • thanks for your words.I almost finished the compulsary harmony course,and after a year,I'll got for the mor "in-depth" one,and also do most of the other theoretic classes
  • Since I'm just a beginner I can't say much about the technical/structural part, but I like the dreamy sound of it :)
