@ musical-md: I see you’re point. Writing in the style of a composer seems like each comp made by a new composer in a style of an older composer makes an argument that that piece adequately models the style of another which is debatable. I think it is hard to convert a major piece into a minor piece, you could say it’s as easy as lowering ever third a half step but I think this sometimes makes the piece sound strange. Yeah I would put this piece in a theory section but don’t see one
about my studies: I am a film major and music minor at SIU. I am hoping to one day be a pianosociety composer (but that means the PS admins actually have to LIKE the piano music I write
@ pianolady: I see what you mean in saying the B section sounds strange. I confess I probably should have made the f# an E natural as hanysz is suggesting in his score.
@ hanysz: I like your change to the piece. But as you say the problem is it resolves to E. I have come up with another edit to the piece in C. The problem it seems is that the B section starts in minor in the original piece, and so it therefore must be made into major for a minor piece, but it’s tricky
