  1. Piano Sonata no.1 in A major Pastoral First Movement 13-01-2023.pdf This is the scored version of the first movement of my Piano Sonata no.1 in A major, Pastoral (2015). It's called pastoral since I subconsciously use the theme from Beethoven Symphony no.6 in the same name. It's more influenced by Beethoven's op.101 though. This movement and the whole sonata is basically a practice on using one single motive throughout the piece. In this movement sonata form is used. The prime motive is used as the first subject and the inverted form is used as the second subject. Hope you enjoy! I personally don't value this piece highly though. I plan to record the 2nd movement as well, but the 3rd and 4th movements I am in doubt of their quality, so I probably won't record them. P.S. Please find the youtube video, mp3 and pdf file! This recording is recently recorded and the score is polished a little bit. Henry P.P.S. The second movement of the work is posted on YC with the link below:
  2. A bit of a throwback piece: I believe this was the second piece I wrote after coming out of a rather worrisome bout of composer's block, some time around February 2023. I was in somewhat of a rush to write this piece (for no other reason other than I wanted to get it done as soon as possible so I don't fall back into a creative slump), and I had gotten it done in three days. After finishing the piece on the first day, I was compelled to add more and more content until it felt right to me, and spent the third day adding finishing touches. It is my longest piece to date (so far), at around 7 and a half minutes. Compared to my earlier pieces, this one is more harmonically diverse, and contains several modulations to different keys (shocker!). This piece is written in a (sort of?) ABCDA form (although I did not envision it as such at first): I named it 'Contemplations Atop a Mountain High' as I felt the piece's meandering nature sort of felt like the remembrances of a person contemplating the nature of their existence before rejoicing in it as the dawn breaks. I was inspired a great deal by the works of Liszt (especially the Allegro pastorale from his Album d'un Voyageur) and the nocturnes of John Field; I lifted the name 'Idyll' from a piece Arnold Schoenberg wrote before his plunge into atonalism. Would appreciate some feedback on this!
