    Dariano Sonata (1st Mvt)

    Friday night, nothing hurt, so I sat down and wrote this. It is a bit lively. The second movement, just begun, is much more tranquil. That may take a day or two.The thrid movement is still a blob of unjelled pudding in my mind.

    GPO Steinway, of course. I am still fiddling with dynamics, but I will do that forever, I think.

    I just noticed the spelling error. Should be Dariano.

    Richard,

    Your writing normally throws me for a loop, and this one is a prime example! You called it lively... which it is... in an almost manic way! Incredible! Bravo! What were you thinking about when you started writing it? For me, it conjures images of a man trying to hold himself together... one moment the dissonances make it seem like he is losing the battle, but then it settles down to a frenzied activity filled with his hopes. I am sure that that was not what you had in mind. Perhaps, it is my own mental turmoil boiling over onto your piece?

    Anyway, Once again... great writing! I do not think that it needs any fiddling. The dynamics sound good to me!! Of course, I could be going nutty!!!

    Keep on writing, Richard!

    Looking forward to the next section,
    Paul

    Richard,

    I like this very much. 16th notes(?) are so cute.

    Fascinating... but then this guy, what's his name? Wayland?

    Every piece he turns out is...

    Seriously, Richard, the opening on this one caught me by
    surprise... thought I had the wrong post... but as reliable
    and undeniable as tides (and rather reminiscent of them),
    it all comes together into a cohesive thought.

    My best,

    there's something really hypnotic about the fast runs in this -- probably the most intriguing piano piece I've heard on this forum for a while!

    I liked this a lot! It seems to have an energetic motor to it. I also liked the polyrhythms. I especially liked the part just prior to the ending. Your harmonies are unique.

    I agree it's a lively piece.

    I'm glad to hear you were pain free. It seems that when one pain goes away another one is still there to take it's place .

    I enjoyed listening.

    Fun piece! I must say, your piano pieces have really done something to my brain... and I am enjoying it... whatever it is. This is a wonderful lively piece, thank you for sharing it!

    Richard,
    Your piano works are alway's interesting and enjoyable but this one is especially good. On my third listen. Strong opening followed by a lot of energy. Thanks for posting.
