Isn't the fantasia the open form where the artist can really diverge?
I thought the prelude had it roots in church preludes, along with interlude and postlude.
If so shouldn't there be at least some minimal form and strictness applied, that resembles the original pre/inter/post-ludes?

Regardless of its historical meaning, it's actual usage has been to simply capture the ideas that may be on a composer's mind at the time, so they sort of lack a consistent form or theme.

I think its better to actually discuss the piece itself rather than argue the validity of its title...

Divermento is really where it is the most open. 3-10 movements, can have binary, ternary, sonata, or some other form in its movements, most key signatures possible in a piece without change within a movement, most time signatures possible in a piece with the same conditions and same for tempo. Most diverse ways of playing notes and dynamics.

Preludes and other open pieces are not nearly as open as the divermento.

LOL. I know what you mean. It isn't even close, but the guy has talent. I wonder why people post their compositions here. If they've studied music composition, they know what they're doing and they don't need advise. If they didn't study composition (and I mean at a conservatory or university or private at an equal level), advise isn't going to replace a study. You can't learn how to compose from posts in a forum. But it's fun, though.

How do you learn? I understand that forums are not a good place to "learn," but is it wrong to look for feedback? I am an dipping my toes into composition. Formal study, at this point, is not an option. I have only started with small trivial pieces (small ternary form, bagatelles, etc). How do I know if I am heading in the right direction? If not here, then where do I find the best place to receive feedback?
