Petite Valse

Recommended Posts

This summer, I composed a little set of three waltzes and this one was the first one I composed. That was my first atempt to write such a piece in a non-defined romantic style. What do you think of it ?

I like it a lot. I think you have successfully managed to embody your voice while still sticking to the style of the romantic period. There are subtle influences of Chopin and Schumann that I can pick up, but is that a bad thing to be influenced by those masters?

Your main theme is very nice and catchy. I think the long Bb in Bar 4 needs some sort of movement, maybe an accompanimental figure through it. It just seems to stall a little. I think that the development in the second section feels natural. I think the middle section is very nice. It seems to flow well and in my opinion seem to be the most in your own style. I love the harmonic changes, especially around Bar 80-106.

Bar 141 - I'm not convinced by this. I like the idea of having the theme played loudly at the end of the piece, but I think it needs to feel a little grander, such as having a bigger chord in the left hand and more ornamentation in the melody.

Overall, well done! I think it's a fantastic little piece. My only complaint would be the fact that it is always a right hand melody with left hand accompaniment. I think you could use your left hand to have some more melodic expression or introduce some inner voices.

Hello Camfrrt

Another nice waltz.  I like the exuberant theme at the beginning and its repetitions throughout the piece. Very Chopin-like (and please see this as a compliment).

I have only a few comments about the harmonic progression in the left hand. In bar 26, as well as in bar 104, it sounds misplaced. Also in bar 3, it does not sound convincing. There may be room for other small improvements of the left hand short-term harmonic progression.

I have no problems with the long Bb in bar 4 (as experienced by  aMusicComposer ). Also, the ending is fine with me. I don´t think that there is a specific need to embellish this part (but that is my personal opinion).

Altogether- Again a good piece!
