Rocket Piece No. 1

Uploaded on Feb 13, 2017

This is one of my earliest pieces. Along with Rocket Piece No. 2, I believe I composed this in Grade 5 or 6.

Yes, both Rocket Pieces are for the right hand only. They're called that because they both start with Mannheim Rocket themes and prominently use those themes throughout. They both abuse the highest note on the piano, which is why they are both in C keys (C minor, in this piece's case).

This piece is in sonatina form--its first theme group is in C minor both times, and its second theme group is in E flat major the first time and in C major the second time. Unlike sonata-allegro form, sonatina form does not have a development section.

(Structure: A-B-A-B'-Coda)
