Ballade No. 1 (old)


Recommended Posts

This is a piece I wrote recently, and finally transcribed. (transcription is a work in progress). I wanted it to sort of have a story-like quality to it.

I think it would be useful for you to try yourself in small, miniature, but varied compositions, because, judging by how many means of expression (rhythmic, harmonic, etc.) you use for 5 minutes, it seems that at the moment you do not have so much to try yourself in a large form. And it is most convenient to experiment with them and acquire new ones just in cycles of small pieces. Anyway thank you for sharing your composition!

You have good potential, you should keep listening to your favorite composers, play and analyze their works, create your music whether many people like it or not. I think the most important thing is that you yourself enjoy the process and your development. 

I don't think time will spare music written solely to please others. But it has always been more favorable to the sincere cries of the soul.

This is really neat! The melodies and harmonies here are really beautiful, and it does have a storytelling quality to it. I really like it.

 

I think your biggest misstep was the section starting with ms. 139. It sounds awkward, like it’s *trying* to be dramatic and forceful, but comes across as more of a mild temper tantrum instead. 
 

I agree with Cyber, try tightening your writing with shorter works and developing material. I’d be really interested to see what you come up with.

 

Thanks for sharing! 😊

And many more unfinished/unposted. Maybe I’ll revise this piece sometime. Looking back this piece seems almost like a "rough draft"
