August ABF recital: Avenue D

Avenue D is my August virtual recital piece (link). Avenue D started as an improvisation that I would play after my Canon in D practice (my previous recital piece). The only constant to the improvisation was the ostinato starting phrase. I lose myself in the music, improvising off that one phrase. As recital time drew near, I sort through the best phrases and codify it into a set piece. 

There is a mistake in the submission. It is meant to be played ABAB, and the recording I uploaded is ABAA. I may eventually upload sheet music, but transcribing is still a slow and arduous task.
