" the upside-down mordents sound cheese.  just leave them out and will be better.  ending sounded too jazzy.  too big of a chord.  leave it as sparse as the rest and will be better."

"Hi Douglas, thanks for the warm and kind comment. It's surprising to read about the different images that this one seems to evoke in people's mind."

"Very nice.  Simple, but professional sounding, if a bit cliched (nothing wrong with that if you are doing it as a soundtrack).  Agreeing with Dane that it made me think of movies like Cinema Paradiso and Once Upon a Time In America (Morricone…"

"I don't think you need Chopin. This is film music. Film music is not the same as classical music. Just keep on going."

"Feels like modern understanding of Chopin's Ballade №1 (https://musescore.com/user/3177366/scores/2182146), but it is very good! "

"I agree. I recorded the midi file using the internal sound from my (excellent) digital piano, then some issues forced me to switch to a different vst piano, which has different dynamics. To be fair, there are several things I do not like about this…"

"Hi everyone, thanks for the nice comments and the comparison with Mr Chopin and Mr Morricone which, of course, play in a very different league. It was very interesting to read about the kind of images and sensations that you associate to this piece.…"

"More like Morricone to me of Metello or Sepolta Viva flavour.

" The opening material is really nice. Chopin on one of his more laidback days.
