"It is a great composition, very talented. I think it would benefit much from a real playing. Or you could introduce some tempo variations in the notation, e.g. rituando at some places to make it more emotional.  I enjoyed the listening a…"

"Great advice Gregorio as always!  On the subject of 'finding your voice' I'd like to add that many composers find sources of inspiration in things that are not directly related to Mozart or Bach eg.folk music, art, cinema, nature…"

"Hi Daniel.. Really solid workmanship.  My only quibble on that level,was that i could have more of the LH part doing echo, or sharing - passing back and forth, melodic content…although though there was some of that.. perhaps some passage…"

"Hi Daniel, If all you do is strictly imitate what you have heard in that style, then no, I don't think it is possible. But if you can take that style as an influence and add to it, bring something new to it, then, yes, I think it is…"

"Thanks Gav. I guess for me the question is this: Is it possible in today's age to write a personal work in that old style? Or, will it be assumed that it is not personal?"

"Hi all, thanks for your comments and feedback. I do understand Christophe and Saul's points however in response I would say that we all have to select a style. For me, I aim for Classical period because it is my favourite era and I think…"

"Very nice composition. Takes me back to another era. My only thoughts on it are that it could possible be a bit slower. Obviously a real pianist would give it a more human feel. Midi always sounds so....midi."
