I have composed this one movement sonata a while ago, but wanted to share it with you guys and hear your feedback.

I wanted to post a recording of myself playing it but this is unfortunately one of my compositions that i can't play up to speed, as some of the left hand runs are quite tricky to play. i was thinking that changing the key might make it more comfortable for the hands but im not sure if that will help.

I hope you enjoy it.

Nice Scarlatti-esque piece!
I did like it, although I must say I liked it better at 90% of the written speed (even 80%!). I found 160 bpm too fast (of course you don’t have to agree).

Hey, thanks for listening and for your kind comment!
I actually agree, the written tempo is in fact too fast and i will change that smile

It's quite nice. About the tempo thing -- it can work at that tempo imo in the hands of a good pianist. There would need to be more phrasing and slight rubato especially so that phrases don't end abruptly.
