    I listened to Alkan's Allegro Barbaro and I like it. Something different.

    So influenced by that I have decided to compose a simple and short "study" in octaves. Though it is not as great as Alkan's piece. And it does not have a theme, which I develop, and then return to; it is my first. Mozart composed....nevermind mozart was better than this at the age of 3 and I am 20.haha. :roll:

    Oh well.

    Any ideas on how to continue with this idea? :?

    That was fun! Perhaps composing is just what you and your developing technique need. Keep composing, it keeps the mind and body fresh. Incidentally, I like to compose little studies if I have a particularly stubborn problem, it really works!

    Interesting... you could probably make it a bit longer by putting the first theme again at the end and changing the rhythm up a bit. Don't we all wish we could compose like the great masters!

    This sounds like the intro to a Polonaise. Is it?

    I have no clue. Which polonaise are you refering to? A polonaise of my own? Ha!!! :lol: Or a Polonaise already composed? If so, there is a slight similarity in concept between this and Chopin's 1817 polonaise.



    There is a fine line between originality and just borrowing. I hope that this is original.

    Funny piece. I think you should trust yourself.

    I'm now 17 and I began to play piano at the age of 15. Lately I discovered the beauty of composing. If I compose something not very ugly in the nearest future I will upload it.
