Polonaise (with Bartok's system)

Recommended Posts

Hi

My studies about Forms led me to a variety of dances: waltz, mazurka, polonaise ... (and a lot of variants).

I have also been studying the base of Bartok's Axial Harmony System. I won't comment anything about it, it's too long. Anyeay this piece is a song with trio combining traditional tonal harmony with Bartok's dodecaphonic tonal (and functional) harmony.

Luis, please allow me to suggest that given the fact that you write exclusively for the piano, you owe it to yourself to buy a really good library of piano samples to go with your notation program. So much of the subtlety and color of your music is lost here, and the piano really needs to be as if it were in a room with ambience. You'll thank me later!

I totally agree with Ken. I'd love to be able hear your music in the highest quality possible.

I haven't listened to much of Bartok's music at all, but I intend to someday. This tonal structure is really fascinating to me, and I think I should study it myself. As always, you use the tools to make a really enjoyable piece of music.

Pretty good voice leading for the most part. I just have to say that there's a couple "jazz-chord" notations issues, most of them dealing with diminished chords rather than minor chords, for example, measure 4.
