Two amateurish but fiery and enjoyable improvisations of mine from three years ago:

I approve of feedback, especially negative one, although positive feedback would please me more.

Interesting. The first improvisation to me has some very Bach like contrapuntal qualities.. .without going to the same lengths of full-on fugue. I know Beethoven does quite a lot of this (including actual fugue) throughout his music, and especially his later Sonatas. I didn't however identify the Beethoven you were quoting. What was it?

Interesting that you apparently take already existing music and put your unique spin on it.

It begins by using a figure from the first movement of op 111. The real quotations come immediately after that, and are from the C Minor Variations. There are a minute and ten seconds of them, although somewhat modified and interspersed with a bit of improvisation. The improvisation that comes after them is partially reminiscent of op 111 again. I don't recall being obviously influenced by any other material, nor did I quote anything beyond what I just mentioned apart from the very little bit of Schumann from Kreisleriana.

Glad you liked it.
