Preludes in the style of Chopin ('original' work)
« on: May 28, 2021, 09:30:12 AM »
Hello! I've been a composition student for two years and quit because of burn-out and wanting to better study piano.
The compositional method of my teacher for us, beginners, was that of asking us to emulate certain styles of past composers before trying to dive into complex 21st century composition. We started with small ABA menuets, the model being the Anna Magdalena Bach Notebook (?).
That being said, here I have a baby set of preludes in the style of Chopin, composed last year.

Warning: the sound is that of Musescore synthesia, so it's not particularly pleasant to listen to.
Nevertheless, I hope you will find intrinsic qualities in the pieces and, why not, enjoy them.

Well, exactly ::)
However, well done. You have captured much of Chopin's style while at the same time managing to create something that feels quite genuine. I'm hoping you'll find your way back to composing.

Thank you so very much for giving some feedback. (and on top of that, positive one)
 I'll try to record them on a decent piano when an opportunity arises. For now, I have a crappy ear-bleeding inducing old upright that tortures every soul within some miles, so Musescore is, sadly, better for displaying my music..  *sigh*
