Hi all. Here is the 4th movement of my recently finished sonata in E. It is generally in the style of Beethoven/Mozart. I am quite pleased with how it has progressed.   I would value any feedback.

I am blessed to be able to share it. The sheet music was written with MuseScore, which is a neat little program.

If you wish to listen, simply go follow the link and hit play. Cheers.


Because it is being played off the score, it will lack a little of the human touch, but it will give a pretty good idea of the overall sound of the movement. :)

Nice work. Very well done.

The only "but" (for me ) is that the rhythm patterns ar (almost) always present. Not only the figute in "six", but also the quavers in the right hand. Of course, there are variations here and there, and when they sound, is like a "release", for example, in bar 50 or so.

I guess if this movement is balanced with the others in the sonata. Did you upload the other movements? I'd like to listen to them....

Hi Luis.

Thank you for your encouragement. It is much appreciated. :)

I really thought about what you said regarding the LH figure of 6 notes. I really tried to balance keeping a furious momentum throughout, while still maintaining an interesting ebb and flow. I have decided that the difference between a good piano composer and a great one is what they do with the Left Hand in a piece of music. Is it really doing something unique, or is it just background noise while the Right Hand maintains an interesting melody?

Give me a couple of days, and I will send you a link to all 4 movements. I have made a couple of changes to the 4th movement, which will be in the newer version. These differences are not vast, but hopefully will add some more tension to the LH.

Cheers and blessings. Thanks again.

I agree. LH is difficult because the RH inclues the melody (yes, we can harmonize it more or less). Of course RH can be ornamentated with internal counterpoint but it gives still the melody.

It 's easy falling in uninteresting stuff with LH. Sometimes a persistent pattern is enough (for example in Chopin's Waltzes).

Yes, I'd love hearing the whole Sonata....
