Well, this was my very first composition, I composed this when I was 14 and about to turn 15, I called this "waltz of the 13 days" or "vals de los 13 dias" in spanish, because I composed this in 13 days.

When I first started hearing "classical" music,  I liked a lo beethoven's sonata no.14, since it is in C# minor, it became my very favorite key since then, and also that's why my first composition is in such a "difficult key". In this composition I used the same harmonic scheme that pachelbel's canon in D major (I, V, VIm, IIIm,IV, I,) but transposed to C# minor. and adding a dominant before the tonic to avoid that plagal cadence (Im, V, bVI, bIII,IVm, V, Im)

you'll see some asymmetric phrasing, constant modulations and a lot of sequencing in this composition.

any comments are apreciated :3 , would be good if everyone post they very first composition.

¡Buen trabajo!

The central section is rich in terms of modulation.

Sometimes the chords are too thick and it makes the texture a bit odd.

I always miss in this kind of pieces some variation in the pattern of the left hand. Yes, I know that's typical one, but there are many variations, just one would introduce interesting changes.

Is fun how you just started you comment in spanish and then all is in english xd.

Yes, I know there could be some variation, but in that time I was just strugling to get a good sounding piece xd, If compose a waltz again I'll take in coun that.

Thanks for your comment :3.

Well, I think Spanish is your language, isn't it? But this forum is in English...

The piece is very nice, I like there is harmonic variation, although you start with a conventional progression, modulations are interesting.

Ah magnificent! I am shocked to know thst this was your first piece. I enjoyed the contrast in this piece. The heavy dense chords in the introduction to the light dancing melody to the slowed section. It all flowed very well. Thank you for sharing 🙂
