...and if you can figure out why, the others will become easier, too.

I'd also say that if you read carefully, I've definitely given enough for it to be easily identifiable.

Ahhh... it's by (Alexander) Scriabin's tragically short-lived son, Julian.

[Matisse] was interested neither in fending off opposition,
nor in competing for the favor of wayward friends.
His only competition was with himself. — Françoise Gilot

Unfortunately it didn't have much time to

Not quite. Almost, though

Sorry, other son - Franz Xaver

Luke

Also not mechaniques. I assume auto correct betrayed you. Melancholiques.

Luke

3 left. I guess you see what I meant by relatively familiar names.  ;D

The theme seems to be 'works by children of (more noteworthy) composers'.

It is! From his tone poem (?) "Sehnsucht".  ;D

Yes it is - sorry, I couldn't reply sooner, would have saved you the search. But the thrill of the chase and all that!


Luke

Good work. So, 3 and 5 left. Both had very famous dads. One of them has been discussed recently on this thread. The other is discussed everywhere, all the time.

#5, a Polonaise by Wilhelm Friedemann Bach, maybe?
When I'm creating at the piano, I tend to feel happy; but - the eternal dilemma - how can we be happy amid the unhappiness of others? I'd do everything I could to give everyone a moment of happiness. That's what's at the heart of my music. — Nino Rota

Luke

No, afraid not. No 1 was a Polonaise, by Mozart's son Franz Xaver. They are cool little pieces. And WF Bach's Polonaises are fantastic too. One of my many weirdnesses - ocassionally I like to spend an hour or so playing both sets through as a group of 'unexpectedly fine Polonaises by the sons of great composers.' But this isn't one of them. Much later
