Complementary piano piece

One of the pieces I’ve been working on is a piano piece that is to be a companion to the Bach Goldberg Variations. If finally dawned on me as to what would be the opposite of melody and counterpoint: harmony and rhythm. Wow, what an interesting challenge. I’ve always been a melody and counterpoint man but my roots are in harmony and rhythm.

The piece is born!
