I wanted to build a bit on the concept of the sententia -as the short form was created by @luderart. Thus, I decided to turn towards my solace: the piano. Writing for piano, idk, seems to open me up more to the possibilities within thematic/motivic material. Not sure why... it just does. The third sententiae uses the opening motif from @maestrowick's The Vivid Dawn. Anyways, each of these 'sententia' are no more than 12 measures. I chose twelve due to symmetry. That allows 6 measures for each segment of the idea to expand and contract (allow for some motivic development) while at the same time keeping the unique nature of the form intact. Hopefully these succeeded in that task.
