Piano Sonata in D Minor, "Piecemeal" - Movement 3


Uploaded on Aug 1, 2016

This is the third movement of my first complete piano sonata...although, in Schumann's words, I feel like I've merely "bound together four of my most unruly children". This is why the sonata is called "Piecemeal" - the second and fourth movement were originally meant to be standalone pieces.

I believe I composed this in senior high school (Grades 10-12 in Canada). It doesn't sound very flashy and, as an old-fashioned minuet and trio, it doesn't have to be.

It's so old-fashioned that the minuet proper is in symmetrical binary form and the trio is in rounded binary form.

(Structure: A1-A1-A2-A2-B1-B1-B2-B1'-B2-B1'-A1-A2)
