    Piano Sonata

    Hello,

    Posting my Piano Sonata--mp3 and score. Three movements--totalling 10-11 minutes. Balance isn't great in all parts but did my best
    Looking forward to hearing feedback, both positive and negative--the best way to grow as a composer.
    Thanks for taking the time to listen.

    Hi, Daniel "lesotho72"

    I recall your earlier very dramatic piece, and have been wondering when you'd be posting more here in The Listening Room. Thanks for coming back.

    "Dramatic" is certainly an appropriate adjective again. I've listened to the whole piece, all three movements, and my personal preference is for the second movement since it provides a larger shift in mood, a bit of respite from what I could describe as the Assaulting nature of the rest of it.

    I imagine I could be rather enthralled to watch a pianist perform this live in concert. --That reminds me of the one tech note I have. You clearly wanted us to think of a pianist in concert from the reverb treatment you've given it. I feel it's too wet, too processed, with the piano really echoing and bouncing off those walls So much - it distracted me. Reverb is always a personal taste thing, I just would prefer to hear this at least somewhat more intimate in its sound treatment.

    Storms seem to come out of you when you express yourself musically. It can be rough going, constantly buffeted by such a storm, and I have to add you certainly stir the air up very confidently and effectively.

    As much as I enjoyed your previous piece that you posted on this forum, this one I enjoy even more. It is gorgeous !! You have fantastic music. The build up to the brilliant finale is so intense, I am completely lost in the beautiful sonoroties and the thematic development. If I were a skilled pianist, I would start learning this today.... Thank you for sharing this outstanding work !
    Kind Regards

    Hello Randy and Louis--Thank you both for listening to my Piano Sonata


    Randy--did you feel the piece overall was too 'assaulting' or 'stormy'? Sitting through 10 minutes of banging might be a bit hard on the ears. Not sure if I should ease up a bit more often

    Louis thank you for your kind words. Glad you liked the thematic development. Wanted the piece to be 'additive' -- by piling on previous themes as I built to the Sonata's climax
