Sonatina (I)

Recommended Posts

My last piano miniature (Haze) was a little short, so I started another one intending on making a longer miniature, but then it turned into a full-blown piece. My tutor remarked that it felt very much like the first movement of a sonatina, and I've never attempted one for piano so I thought I would try. I'll start work on a middle slow movement next!

Nice work. I like the smooth transitions between the parts and I think it'w very well structured. Energetic and lyric sometimes, beautiful.

An energetic whirlwind! Some shifts to other textures / styles seemed a bit forced, like early on the lyrical passage, and some harmonies where not so much surprising, but a bit out of place. It is good to discover so many instances of the main theme or at least of quotes of the main theme in the movement. This really holds the piece together and makes one interested when the theme will surface again.
