"With your talent and skill I think it would be interesting to see what you would do in a free form environment. Coltrane himself went from 'coltrane changes' to a much wilder approach that cost him quite a few followers; dangerous ground indeed!"
"Thanks, Ingo! Indeed, the rondo mold is a bit restrictive. I'm not very satisfied with repeating the main theme verbatim so many times when it already has some internal repetition. That probably gives the piece the formality you mention. I've also…"
"Hi Albert, I'm sorry I have an empty comment above, I think the server dropped it but I'm not sure what happened.

"What a marvellous piece ! I loved most of it. The transitions are so seamless. Your gift for painting pictures through music is quite evident. The only tiny bit of "critique" I have is regarding the very ending (last few seconds) which I found a…"
hearing your piece, I get angry, angry with myself that I cannot achieve something similar. The textures seem to be very clear, and what wonderful melodies. Have to take a deeper look.
Thanks for sharing.
"This is very impressive Albert, well written and orchestrated. Clearly your study and work have paid off well. I too had trouble with the player stopping early for some reason, I'll reload and try again. This is great use of NotePerformer as well,…"
