Bad-Tempered Dances

Uploaded on Jul 28, 2016

This is one of my earlier works--its last modified date claims to be in December 2014, but I'm sure I came up with the A theme years before that. Maybe I didn't come up with the B or C themes years ago, though.

This is a short, fast rondo with a variety of dance forms in it. ...I'm just not sure which dance forms. The B section (in E major and A major) probably contains the most formal dances, though.

I personally find the B section pretty repetitive, but back then, I must have thought it sounded good enough...

Bars 134-137 remind me of Beethoven's Appassionata Sonata's 3rd movement (sheesh, I must be influenced by that Beethoven sonata), just before the development ends.

As of August 18, 2016, I have submitted this to the First Composition Contest on this Group in https://musescore.com/groups/the/discuss/2364276. It fits the contest criteria...

This probably doesn't have all the slurs, articulation, and dynamics it could - if you have any ideas for these, comment away!
