Piano Concerto No. in F, "Short"


Recommended Posts

In an effort to embarrass and hate myself even more, I present to you my first attempt at a piano concerto just 3 years ago. It's heavily based off of the Ravel Piano Concerto since I was still working under established formats at the time. 
While it's nice to see I'm infinitely better than I was in a relatively short amount of time, it still fills me with rage and contempt to see pieces like this that I've done. I truly hate it. I hate seeing it, knowing there was a point I thought this was acceptable material.
It's a little longer than most things here since it's all 4 movements in one file, but I'd appreciate any listen throughs of it. 
Note: The first 14 or so seconds of the file are empty, but the concerto is there.

Come on! Don't hate it!

Of course, having listened to your current works the evolution is clear. I think this is something that happens to most of us. I wonder if the stuff I work on today will be rejected by myself in a couple of years.

Anyway, the concert is fresh and has that point of ingenuity in some piano parts. I like you used only strings (which reminds me the Chopin piano concertos). Some parts sound more classic, other more Ravelian (m. 102...). Some sections are very nice (sección E).
