Douwe Ziel replied to Joe Ruby's discussion Violin Concerto
"Oh by the way, I thought your symphony no. 11 was really great ;)

Lawrence Aurich replied to Douwe Ziel's discussion Prélude no. II - Charactères avec tempérament
"Douwe,
     Very nice work.  Have you played it?  At first it looked more difficult than Ravel but mostly because of the sloppy score.  Some one needs to go through it and eliminate the unplayable notes and write the unreadably high note in octava. …"

4. Prokofiev -…"
