Hello from Prague!
Long time since I was on the forum last time. Now I'm here again. Please, listen my new (super-short) piano piece "The garden": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0oZe9tRqRQA
This little piece (or even something more miniature) is devoted to one fabulous garden, where I spent my childhood. In this piece I wanted to convey the fleeting and fabulous feeling I remember.
Thank you all for listening!

It's beautiful... It's also quite short, which is a pity really.
The ending leaves us hanging for more...
I won't go into anything academic about the oldness of the music language, etc, cause it's simply not needed here! I'll just say that I liked it, quite a lot!
and a very beautiful performance as well!
Well done overall!
Thanks for your comment, Nikolas!
I enjoyed this little piece but I'm perturbed. Normally if I visit a garden, even a brief walk by, the experience lasts longer than 40 seconds. In addition I believe the material would lend itself to much more significant development. Isn't the purpose of such a reminiscence to help the memory linger? I'm very curious about your artistic intent with this and I'm not convinced by your comment, "I wanted to convey the fleeting and fabulous feeling I remember."
I checked out a couple of others as well, and particularly liked your Lullaby For Piano.
In fact, I accidentally had both this and Jardin running simultaneously in separate tabs for a while, and that sounded pretty cool, too!
Thanks for your comment, Steve Chandler.
You ask about my artistic intent... Say truth, I have never had any definitive artistic intents in my head before the act of composing (by the way, I'm very embarrassed by this fact). I am one of those who compose "by fingers", not "in head"... My piano pieces always born downright on the keyboard. I think, this is not really correct way of composing. But this is how I do it. Regarding this piece, more correct to say that it "reminded me of the fleeting and fabulous feeling I remember from one fabulous garden, where I spent my childhood".
Thank you too, Ben Crosland. I very like "Lullaby for piano". I belive, this is one of my best piano piece (up to now :-).
