My previous piece (Impromtu in D minor): http://www.pianoworld.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/2166034.html#Post2166034

Here is my newest composition. Actually, it is about 4 months old. I started composing this at last Christmas holiday and wrote some every once in a while, having a lot of school work and stress. Who knows if that has had some influence to the piece? It was roughly ready those 4 months ago, but after that I made some improvements and changes. I made a computer listening version before I learned to play it myself. I would have published this earlier but I was already learning it and I wanted to make a recording rather than giving just that computer played version. I haven't mastered this piece yet so the recording is not perfect. Also the difficulty of this is already verging my skill level.

The piece itself... well, there's a lot of different things in there, and what is even more special, this "Impromptu in majors and minors" has no main key at all! While my uncle was listening to this, he commented things like "that's Bach... that's Rachmaninoff... that could be Chopin".

I'd say that at least Rachmaninoff (probably my favourite composer) has influenced my works. I like the big chords, difficult paths and the epicness of his music, and that's the kind of music I want to compose. However, my next goal is to make a more peaceful piece for a change, if I'm able to do that (but they just BECOME like this!).

There , have sheet music, a recording (Thanks to my JiaYu G4S china phone with great stereo microphones!) and a computer played version. At some point I'm probably going to make different kind of sheet music that show how I play it (hands and fingering). SoundCloud link

Enjoy!

I would prefer links in this thread directly to the score rather than linking to another forum. It's a nice piece and it's got some nice drama to it. While I hear the references to Rachmaninov I wouldn't mention that in your discussion, I hear far less of Chopin or Bach. This is your piece not Rachmaninov's. If he's an influence that's fine but you want to develop your own voice.

I use the piano society because it's simple and easy to upload there while actually posting the piece there too. Many upload sites have restrictions or policy of removing files after some time. And actually that is 2 clicks away from the file, like it would be at many free upload sites.

That Rachmaninov-thing: I'm not trying to mimic Rachmaninov nor take his honor. I just wanted to tell about the piece and because I listen to Rachmaninov a lot, it inevitably has some influence to my pieces. It's not Rachmaninov's piece, but he has had influence to it. I write my own way.
