Nice and polished - just like pretty much everything that Saul produces...! 

Saul, this is sooo beautiful!! Wonderful tune, harmonies and a so expressive playing! I understand that you repeat this tune serveral times. What about enlarging this piece by adding a contrasting middle part?

Thank you Gerd.

Well to make it longer I don't think that that's what the piece needs. I also think that there are enough different things going on even with the repetitious theme because I play each repeated theme differently and part of the interest for the listener I believe is to notice these subtleties. I also think that if the theme is good enough and works just the way it is making it even more business would be counterproductive. The entire piece flows naturally and I don't want to enhance it generically because sometimes less is more, not always, but for some pieces its certainly true.

Said that, I always appreciate your thoughtful comments and I also believe that everything you said is not wrong, and could be right, I think its just a matter of opinion.

Regards,

Saul

Thank you Tillerich, I do think that some of my pieces would be in the categoric of 'nice and polished' but everything?

Well, that's debatable!

Regards
