It's my first post on these forums here, thanks for having me. :)
I joined to get myself back into the groove of composing (I have not touched it in over a year), and as means of being more responsible/accountable for it. I think I do an okay job sometimes, but without a medium or audience to share/discuss there's little to motivate someone to write (unless your Alkan).
This here is a work I started a few years ago; I remember sharing it with my composition teacher (who I no longer have) and he dismissed it as being too demanding, and pastiche. I guess to some extent he was correct in that it is pastiche, but I still want to finish it, and I want to gain more experience on how to approach problems like these in the future. I have a problem with never truly finishing a piece, although if something is pushing me to do so I somehow find a way (even if it's not a good way).
This was modeled after one of Chopin's Scherzos (structure wise), the name is a little tacky but I can't think of a title. There's a few spots in the score where I just can't figure out a simple and effective way to move from one section to another (I marked it in the score). The A section is Eb minor, the B section is E major, returning to A.
Is the work playable? Are there any issues in the notation that may cause a problem? Do you think there's too many ideas?
Thanks for having me, I look forward to absorbing more knowledge while I'm here ^^
