  1. Thank you so much for your feedback. Indeed, I was trying to create a polystylistic piece as the description in my video suggests. I'm really glad to hear you liked it !
  2. Firstly, I'm really glad that you enjoyed the piece! I believe you've also described some of my intentions/methods better than I might have. Indeed, I wanted to create a piece starting with something that has been done to death (like a waltz) but make it "drift" in unpredictable ways into unpredictable areas. Your comments make me feel I might have succeeded! So Thanks very much for your encouraging comments!
  3. All 3 movements are quite interesting! I particularly enjoyed the 1st movement and the part of the 3rd movement that starts around 0:50. Very mysterious depictions !
  4. Thanks! I'm very glad you liked it. This is a huge compliment as Ravel is at the top of my favorite composers list.
  5. First of all, a big Thanks for such an inspiring feedback. I really appreciate you taking the time to give me detailed comments. Chopin was definitely an influence throughout. My other main influences in this piece would be Ravel, Debussy and to an extent Prokofiev, and even a bit of Gershwin. The part starting at M.118 was one of the most exciting ideas I had while composing this, so I'm especially thrilled that other people are appreciating it too 🙂 . Indeed, I spent a significant amount of time trying to make sure I was as clear as possible in all my details ( also with things like enharmonic spellings ... ) . It's hard work !! and lastly .. The harder parts of this piece were a bit beyond me to begin with, and took a LOT of disciplined effort for me to get to this point ( I was inspired by remembering how Ravel practiced so hard to be able to premier his concerto , even though he couldn't in the end) . So its especially encouraging to hear such comments as yours. Thanks again for your encouragement, and I'll get started on the next piece right away !
  6. Thank you for your encouraging feedback !! It's great if I can keep someone's interest till the end. As for the notation of accelerandos, and ritardanto , are you referring to the specific instructions like "gradual rit. until m.91"? I saw that way being used in a John Adam's orchestral score ( Harmonielehre) , and thought I'd use it. But I do realize that's not a very common method of notating tempo changes. I will keep that in mind for the future.
  7. Thank you very much ! and my apologies as I didn't post a description of the piece before ( I've updated that in the original post now) but here it is anyway: The title of this piece alludes to the tendancy of this piece to drift from one style to another, from music of one period to another, from one mood to another. The music also tends to "drift" from a standard waltz form to music which has little resemblance to a waltz ( but may still maintain a slight waltz pulse) . So, the somewhat capricious nature of the piece is intentional. It was my hope that there would be some structural unity provided by the fact that , aside from the section towards the end, a good part of the composition involves variation of quite a few themes. For example, the part from around 1:25 -1:35 and then 2:15-2:25 employ identical or very similar sequence of notes but in entirely different contexts, hence sounding quite different. I apologize If I'm being too detailed here ! On second thoughts, I suppose by definition this could be thought of as a medley of sorts , but it wasn't intended as such ! 🙂

  9. Hi Everyone, I just recently finished my first "exact" composition for solo piano . Prior to this, I have been improvising and composing various themes for many years but this is the first time I went about trying to put together a coherent piece and notating it. I would love to hear what people think about it. Here's a link to my own performance ( with score) on youtube: Also, here's a link to the score (also attached as pdf) : https://musescore.com/user/25828516/scores/5759589/s/0aktCw I realize that some of the more difficult sections aren't a 100% clean in my performance. So those interested, could listen to a "100% accurate" but somewhat stiff/mechanical software (musescore) playback to evaluate those sections. ( I did my best to put hidden instructions in the software so it sounds less robotic ). I'm completely self-taught in music theory/composition and am trying to evaluate where I stand currently as far as my compositional skills are concerned. So, any kind of feedback would be highly appreciated. Also, here's a short description of the piece: The title of this piece alludes to the tendancy of this piece to drift from one style to another, from music of one period to another, from one mood to another. The music also tends to "drift" from a standard waltz form to music which has little resemblance to a waltz ( but may still maintain a slight waltz pulse) . Thank you very much !!
