Should I call my piece a piano sonata or a sonatina?

So, I am writing another sonata form movement as the first movement of another piece. And the piece is in the key of C minor. The thing is though, that especially in the key of C minor, I tend to err on the side of more development. So, should I call it a sonatina as I am currently and try to make it more concise? Or should I call it a piano sonata and write it to be as long as I please?

My second composition! :)

Well, that sure was quick.... my second piece... A study for classical/acoustic guitar, the instrument that i really play! Dont be fooled by the simple structure because it is hard, especialy to make a good fingering (probably gonna take some notes out to make it more simple and playable for guitar). Inspired by me i guess...? I just went with my flow and followed a great deal of advice from my first piece. Structure wise i feel it is obvious - A in D locrian (say whhaaaa)/pentatonic minor as well (in some parts) with a modulation to Bb major and a bridge to section B in D minor with a bridge to repeat the study until the coda. Sounds like a boos theme who went to brasil for carnival to me lol.... but idk...well enjoy! :) Also, please leave feedback so i can see what you guys think i can do better (there is always something that can be better!)  Version 1.1: Re-made the section B to add more flavour and rhythm, now it feels like it's moving rather than just giving 3 close-to random notes... it has more purpose, especially with it's connection with the meter 7/16 from the bridge... the chords were also changed from the beggining of the same section, giving the basses more work to uplift more the harmony... now it should be more enjoyable... Also made it for piano so everyone can have a feel for it...now it definitely feels like a boss-fight theme lolol  Next update will be to take some notes out from some almost guitar-impossible chors (still posisble though, just requires what i imagine is more than 3 months of metronome practice...well it's a etude so i shouldn't care but i am to nice) and arrange it with fingerings for the guitar! :) Btw, if there is any guitarists (or pianists) out here, try it... i promise it won't bite!  Well Enjoy!! :) João Carvalho
