Etude in D Minor ("Eil Ton")
Uploaded on Aug 4, 2016
This is a colourful piano etude that helps you practice your left-hand arpeggios and right-hand chords.
Depending on your translation, "Eil Ton" means either "the wave" or "the second wave" in Welsh. I aim to depict tumultuously flying over crashing waves in this piece.
The entire piece is marked "con pedale", but the damper pedal usage is invisible and merely a suggestion.
This piece was composed at least 3 years ago, but I've only published it today--I initially made a semi-mastered MIDI version of this in a DAW because the damper pedal makes this sound so much better.
...Yeah, this sounds harmonically similar to Stephen Heller's 25 Etudes Melodiques, Op. 45, No. 15. ...Yes, the one in D minor that's "Poco maestoso" and is known by too many titles. It's quite possibly his most famous piece. Bars 35-39 sound a lot like that etude.
In the meantime, the ending bars--Bars 47-48--pretty much quote the very end of the first movement of Beethoven's Tempest Sonata.
This is fairly difficult, but competent pianists should be able to nail this--this is not a virtuoso piece.
