some left hand grace notes would be nice before the second chord per measure...

In reply to by Jackie Carson

As composers, we should always strive to improve ourselves, and we should never settle for what we think of as passable or adequate. One thing I see (and experience) a lot is a reluctance to re-write music, because we are afraid of changing what we wrote. I'm not saying that you should apply SoysauceK's comments without careful thought, but I think it is a mistake to just "take Tchaikovsky's word for it." There will always be a better way of writing things than what we write. That's the point of composition lessons! I would probably tend to agree with SoysauceK, that something is lacking. It is a lovely little piece, but I think that it needs something else. That said, it is your composition, and you can do what you like!

Nicely done, all said. =)

I have to say I disagree with Monsieur Butler somewhat. If Tchaikovsky had thought there was a better way of writing the left-hand he would have already done it since he wasn't known to be easily pleased by his efforts and was a constant re-writer. Who am I (who are we) to contradict him? Whenever we think we can do better than Pyotr Iwe can just compose something from scratch.

I am terrible at piano composition because I always get wrapped up in the possibilities and making huge chords and moments to get the feelings I want. This is fairly "simple" and conveys just as much emotion etc. as I want really nice job. I almost want to write a horn solo over it
