    Default Does the introduction have a meaning?

    I tried to be brave and innovative when I developed the introduction to this piece.
    This somewhat atonal intro appears once again later in the middle of the piece which otherwise is fully tonal.
    I would appreciate comments on the suitability of the intro or anything.

    I think that intro is a good idea, it gives a haunting sort of feel. I don't think it is actually atonal though, but has some oraginized disonance rather since there were a lot of tonal intervals. There were spots in the intro I would have avoided a few of the sharp disonance or instability where the 2 themes met. But I thought it was overall pretty good.

    Thanks Phil for listening and for your comment.
    In the last movement of his 9th symphony Beethoven contrasts a noisy intro with his famous melodic theme creating a feel of relief. I think this psychological effect is interesting.
