    I have listened to a lot of the Neo-classic music of Prokofiev, and to an extent Bartok. This piece is loosely based on Hindemith's 12 note tonal counterpoint and standard counterpoint. The next two movements will take it even further into the Hindemith style of writing.

    Thanks for listening!

    Ha I am not the only fool who writes classical piano sonatas)...though not 12tone, major and minor and all that. OI Shoenberg was wack he though that God had given him the gift to write the most scientific music etc...mathematics gallor, heck the guy even wrote that way in his letters like math LOL 12tone! I still haven't figured out how to use GPO Piano right as pedal and non pedal in the piano score....
    elctronic music and use of silence that's John Cage. I don't remember Paul Hindemith doing anything with electronic music at all.
    oh Keep up the piano music!

    Hi Jess!

    What a lovely piece! If you do plan to release the sheet music, I'd be very intested... it would make some excellent study material!

    hey thanks for the heads up on the piano usage in GPO I must be brain dead.
    so the piano will behave correctly for Sluring and the sustain?
    I should say I have composed 12 tone music before and seirlism...but tend to write Vienna Style Classicalism more when I compose classical music styles on my own...Thanks again

    Yeah, this was definitely a very enjoyable listen, very interesting application of modern sound with the past...

    So, this is GPO piano? Wow! Very nice expression and dynamics.

    Thanks! I can't take much credit for the expression. Sometimes Finale's Human Playback function works nicely! I can't wait to get into the second movement. I have gotten a really good response from this.
