Well written and played very beautifully. I like the impressionistic feel of this one. Very mellow and calming.

Nice. I like the main thematic idea of this piece. Seems to emerge from the piano by itself.

One of the better compositions posted here. Who is Goldfinch and why are you posting his music?

Haha, okay. But why are you under two different 'finch' names?

Good point. Don't Know. Firefinch is the name of the artist I use on my cd.

Excellent composition and well played - same as with the other one that was just previously posted! I've listened to many of the videos at your channel including from two years ago and like the evolution of your composing. This is a composition I might be interested in although I would want to press into the triple fortissimo range with it and make various personal adjustments and some additions to accommodate this - it might become a four or a five minute composition.

Absolutely one of the best compositions I have listened to here. The character of the piece reminds me a bit of Debussy's "Serenade for the Doll", but the theme and the harmonic progression is original and very interesting.

Hey now, I like this guy's music way better than Debussy's :P.

I hate that kind of stuff, but your take on it is enjoyable. You maintain the serene mood very well.
