Sonata for Piano

by Leon Lindon

Hello all. Today I offer you the first movement of my piano sonata, which is in an allegretto tempo and in the key of E major. It is supposed to be in the style of the classical era. I studied the music of Beethoven while writing it but I have been told it sounds more like Mozart. As for my opinion of what it sounds like, I’m indifferent; for me it was more of a learning exercise. I usually write more sombre music but I was kind of stuck with a major key since this is my first sonata. I intend to write the rest of the sonata soon, but for now I’m offering up the first movement, so please enjoy it!
