The piano sounds great on these recordings. The pedaling sounds very good too, I kept noticing that. I liked the third some probably the least, the second song the most, and the first I enjoyed.

The first song: I enjoyed the floaty feeling of this one. Very nostalgic. Also your graphic might have influenced my interpretation a bit.

I really liked the second song. Could you post the score by chance? I would really like to learn to play this one. My only criticism is that I wish this piece were longer. It feels like it ends too soon.

The third song caught my interest probably only for the first minute, and later in the more energetic staccato part. Also, that section of the piece sounded cool but felt out of place. I was wondering why you didn't make that your main theme and the slower part a bridge or b section.

Overall these are very well written, well-played, mature sounding pieces. I would be proud if I wrote them, for sure.

I enjoyed "Fantasia" the 3rd one. Of course they were all good, but that ones off centre rhythm (like your tripping as you walk) is more interesting to me.

I love the third one, that early chord change is so melancholy (you know the one I'm talking about!) thats what does it for me smile its depressed and troubled but still maintains it dignity and puts on a brave face. at least that's how I see it, but I am somewhat strange! keep up the good work laugh

Listening to the third one first, Great piano sound, the opening harmony is somewhat interesting, but it's very static and repetitive. By the time it got to the staccato part my attention was wandering. Sorry I wish I could be more positive, but I didn't enjoy it.

In the 2nd one I found the constantly repeated rhythm bothersome after a while. I found the moment at :32 where the sixteenth notes continued a short lived relief. It only happened once in a minute long piece.

It looks like I enjoyed the 1st one the most, there's a lot more variation in the harmony and rhythm. There could be plenty more for my taste. But this is the most enjoyable of these 3 for me.

What piano are you recording? Is that a sampled piano? If so it's a very good one. I'd like to know more about how you got such a great piano sound.
