"I really enjoyed this. I’m not going to analyse it that much. Sometimes it’s just enough to enjoy the music. Are you going to publish the other movements too? I’m looking forward to hearing them if you do."

"Congratulations! A very successful foray into one of the more difficult forms for any composer. Some of it had a Copland-esque feel, with the choppy rhythms and energetic figures. Not much more to say, except "Good job." Very polished and…"

"This is accomplished writing ! And yes I agree with Gav's comment that I feel with this piece you've broken into new grounds for yourself ( based on having a few other pieces of yours).  I particularly liked the "Breakout"…"

"Hi Oscar, I listened to it twice, and spot listened a bit after that. This is an ambititous work for you, at least of the works I have heard of yours. I think it shows a stretching of approaches into new territory, which for me is a line that I like…"

"Yes, very lovely. I like the harmonic color in the chord changes. Overall, a very successful piece.  On a more critical note, I wonder about the very high 16th notes on the bassoon. Always risky to venture up there, in my opinion. The notes…"

My latest piano piece - songlike with an awesomely gorgeous melody

I had a lot of fun writing this particular piece due to its gorgeous melody and the little nuances I tried to create here and there. I explore the rising octave motif (first heard in the opening melody) throughout the piece––it also being the catalyst in the three short sections dividing the return to the main theme.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HJHE6baBQkSee More

"Ahh, what a beauty. Truly impressive work, reached the bottom of my heart. Is it live performance? Very long phrases for the bassoon... Sometimes the piano vanish, I can't here everything I see on the score. I love this melodic music and I…"
