• Saul,

    If I heard this playing on my classical music station on my car radio, I would take note of the name and look for it online!

    This is FANTASTIC!!! Everything about it is masterful. The chord changes are marvelous! The notes as fast as they are, are all in the right place, not one clinker did I detect! And I can't tell if you did this via a DAW, or if that was you playing a real piano.

    If that was you playing then OMG, your mastery of the keys blows my mind!

    Just an AWESOME piece, that's all I've got to say.

    "Thanks for sharing" sounds lame, I know. I hope you can find a way to share this piece to a broader audience because it's a fine work of art.

    Thanks for sharing... oh crap did I just say that?

    You are brilliant.



    • Thank you Rick for your kind comments. Glad you enjoyed the music.


      How this piece came about? well I was thinking about composing an Etude, and I had the begining theme already ready and I thought about the speed and the feel of the piece before playing and composing it.


      Then I have recorded myself in DAW but not at the same speed, I have adjusted the speed that I thought fits the music best. So, yes I did play every note myself, but then adjusted the tempo.

      Could I have played the piece at that speed? maybe, but that would have taken lots of practice, and I think that adjusting the tempo to what I have invisioned did the job pretty well.


      As for trying to reach a larger audience, that's something that every composer would like I assume, maybe it will come some time in the future.


      As to why I changed the name from Etude to Presto, because I wanted to keep the piece simply as a regular piano work and not so much as a study.


      Thanks again for listening and commenting,


      Best Wishes,





  • After one or two somewhat more samey piano pieces, this latest is a wonderful breath of fresh air and imagination. Curiously I don't usually like this sort of more Early-Romantic "decorative" music -- I am bored by much of the faster works by Chopin, Liszt and the like (never mind Rachmaninov). But this has a sort of quirkiness, unpredictability and naivety almost which is really refreshing.

    • Thanks David! lol
