Prelude in D minor

Postby Perrotta » Sun May 08, 2011 3:15 am

Ok, I know it's been a short time since my last post here, but anyway, I'm posting another composition of mine here. It existed before I knew the forum (it's not so early). It's a prelude, in the key of D minor.

The recording is not THAT good, but it's a satisfactory execution to the piece. I see great repetition along the prelude... well, let's see what people have to say.

(MP3 and score attached. The titles are in portuguese because I'm Brazilian)

I hear Bach! And we all know that's never a bad thing. I think it's almost hypnotic. Prelude in C and have some things in common. Except you change it up a bit.
And I like the recording quality. Gouda.

Christian, have you heard the Beethoven "Tempest" Sonata en Re menor, Op.31, No.2, 3rd movement? If not, I think you may find it interesting.

Wow, Bach?! I appreciate the praise, but this work is far too distant from Bach's magnitude, :P. Anyway, this prelude may soud a bit Bachian maybe because it's been conceived to precede a fugue (which already existed), at first. However, after a certain time, it has gone into another mood and I decided it to be an independent piece.

Yes, I've heard Beethoven's tempest. I LOVE it! The third movement is my favorite! In fact, I love (almost) all Beethoven sonatas, they're delightful (as opposed to Mozart ones, which I think are rather childish and artificial... it's not my preference, but I respect and understand his brilliant contribution). This 3rd movement has an hypnotic something too, but I didn't think about this hypnotic effect. It just appeard. In fact, I was thinking in mystery.

Thanks for comments!
