I liked this piece, pretty much as I have all your others.

I'm curious to know what you think the form of this piece is?

To my ears it's thru-composed with some motif elements repeating throughout. I'm sure I could be wrong as my classical chops aren't near yours.

But I'm curious.



Thamks Ian! You're spot-on. A simple motif expanded with variations and episodes that tie the sections together. I first concentrate on the first 8 measures. After I like that, the rest is simply a developing technique. I'll often slip in a short "B" section.

Best, John smile
