Diabelli Project 045 - Piano Piece in D minor

The Diabelli Project is about offering my weekly flash-composition sketches freely to all. Like Antonio Diabelli's theme these sketches aren't great music. But perhaps (as in Diabelli's case) there's a Beethoven out there who can do great things with them.

This week's entry seems to be an amalgam of the two previous piano pieces (Diabelli Project 042 and 043). The 5/8 bass pattern is similar to the other 5/8 fragment -- perhaps it's part of the same piece? The key is wrong, though -- it actually is related to the first sketch.

It could be that subconsciously I've been thinking about a piano piece, and all three of these are part of the same larger composition. If you find something in this sketch that's useful, though, don't feel you need to tie it to the other parts. This music is free for the taking -- in whatever form you want to take it in. Just let me know how it all turns out. And if I do decide to pull all of these pieces together, I promise to share the results.
