'Bead Rock' is the third movement of the Piano Sonata No.3; but also it may be performed as a stand-alone concert piece.
The title is a play on words, and refers to a spherical jewel like a pearl, but also refers to the main motif (which comprises the notes B, E, A, D) and Rock as a musical genre. The composition seems influenced by George Gershwin, Jelly Roll Morton, Jerry Lee Lewis, Nikolai Kapustin and Keith Emerson, and it includes a funny quote from the J.S.Bach's Italian Concerto. The jazzy style of this piece may be defined as avant-garde, crossover, free-jazz, fusion, modern creative, third stream or jazz-rock. The tempo indication is 'veloce con veemenza' (vehemently fast). So, let's rock!!!

By aurelie-tomezzoli , at 20:05 celle de Prokofiev (inspirée de la toccata de Schumann, d'ailleurs).
Par contre, cette pièce doit être extrêmement fatigante à jouer.
... And the Prokofiev's one (it's inspired by the toccata of Schumann too).
But this score must be extremely tiring to play.

Thanks for your new comment. This is not an easy piece, but Schumann's Toccata and Prokófiev's Toccata are more difficult and tiring than "Bead Rock", I'm sure.

A spicy piece. Alas no slow part nor resting point in the piece.
analeiracarnero Owner , 20 Mar 2015 at 19:24
Thanks for your comment. This is a toccata-like piece, so there's no need for slow part. There's a large development, which fulfils the contrasting function in regard to the thematic material. Energy is the key for the rock feeling I want, and a slow part would destroy that. Moreover, this piece belongs to my third sonata, where it is preceded by a slow movement.
Would you like a slow part inside the Schumann's Toccata, Op.7? It lasts two minutes longer than my piece.

It is a real good and brilliant "rocky" classical music piece. I would be happy to discover the other parts of this sonata ...

Thank you so much. Please go to my webpage to hear my piece BARCAROLLE IN BLUE AND WHITEWATER, which is the second movement of this sonata.
