"I like these pieces, the mood depicted, and the usage of piano sounds and techniques.

"Thanks, Fredrick. I hope I will be able to get them around, I would love to hear them played by other pianists to hear how they interpreted them. Right now I am trying to find a publisher for the music but it's not so easy.

About Me (MUST be more than 10 words to be approved):
My name is André van Haren and I was born in 1963 in Holland. I started to play piano when I was 16 years old.
After six years of piano lessons at the music school in Zevenaar and later with Liliane Lepiet in Velp, I moved to the conservatory in Utrecht to get my teacher degree, so I could teach classical piano. After five years of intense piano playing and lessons at this school with Robert Groslot, I took my final exam on September 10, 1990, and started seriously to compose. I took lessons by Henk Alkema who teaches composition at the same institute and took my final exam in composition on March 3, 1995. After my graduation, I dedicated all my time to compose, writing mostly for voice. My musical style is very tonal.
On the 11th of April 2003, I moved to Gothenburg, Sweden.
