Is that you playing it? If it is, you've got a nice touch! I love the piece too. Mind if I learn it? \:D

nice! Simple and solid. Good structure, well crafted melody, says something, organized. Just solid.

Kreisler: excellent! I've listened to it a couple of times, it's really nice! I especially like that middle part. Good work!

At last, an amateur composition that is genuinely pleasant to listen to. That was delightful. \:\)

I'd love to hear some of your recordings of standard repetoire as well.

I noticed a "1" at the top. Is there a second part in the works?

It is a very refreshing piece of music and I really enjoyed it. Somehow it is very reminiscent of Kinderszenen to me... Do you plan to make a Suite? (I noticed that you've numbered your piece) I think it will be a lovely intro. \:\)
Please keep us posted with any new works!

There are 5 or 6 planned. This is the first that's finished, 2 more are close! I'll post them as I get them put into Sibelius and edited. \:D
