"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…"

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

"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.
