-Orr- Piano Sonata in G Minor

Author Comments

I've been reluctant to submit pieces that I've written for studying purposes, because I've found that the audience at Newgrounds tends to enjoy more modern film-esque tracks. I am pretty deep into both (what I consider) left and right sides of music. Here's is a look at my personal studies.

Here is the first movement to my piano sonata in G minor. It's quite fiery, and I consider it to be a cross between the styles of Beethoven and Rachmaninoff with some modern streaks swirled into the mix. Regardless, the form is quite standard- the only modification I've made is in the recapitulation. Bonus points to whoever can name what I've done to change the form!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Sonata form, it is (essentially) an A B A form piece, where the B section develops themes from the A section. The B section (development) beings at 1:30, and the final A' section (recapitulation) occurs at 3:26, for anyone who gets lost!

As always, reviews are much appreciated, especially reviews that are constructive. As much as I love a compliment, I'd prefer any constructive suggestions if you have them to offer!


Heat, But You Could Dance to It.

This is a lovely piece. I have limited musical theory knowledge to provide any hard knocks about how or where else to take this, so all I can say is keep up the good work.


I wish that most music out there would return to this style! It's better than most of what is out there in main stream (like RAP! BLEH!)

A masterpiece, much better than half the crap submitted to Newgrounds.

If there was an organization thing where it was in three categories: "Crap", "Average", and "Masterpiece", guess which one it would be in!

Im usualy not a fan of this kind of music but i like this.

I Dislike Summaries.

I'm pissed that this is under 4, this deserves 5's, 3.84 / 5.00 (+ 0.010) bleh.
Gave you a 5. :D
I see the resemblence to Beethoven, I especially liked how both hands hand their own tune, instead of something overly simplified, yet it didn't have and overdose of trills and ghost notes or anything, not sure about program you're using, but your staccato notes sound a little electronic, maybe knock the bass on the piano up.
Actually, when I think about it, my laptop has a strange thing for playing everything with high treble and no bass, so ignore that, hehe.
The ending was epic.
Have all my internets.
