Minuet in D


Recommended Posts

In this minuet I use a three stage monte. I think I have quoted Mozart in the last few bars, possibly the minuet from symphony 40.

Hi Darren.  I like you use of secondary dominants in this!  It's a very simple piece but effective.  Have you ever thought about orchestrating one of your minuets for a larger classical ensemble/chamber orchestra?  The only thing that bothers me is the 7 measure phrase you have which to me sounds like it should be 8 (from measure 11 through 17).  Other than that it was nice!  I don't think the ending was a copy of Mozart at all - I think that's just a common way of ending a minuet (and it uses arpeggiation liberally which isn't something you can own the rights to at any rate).
