"Your 16th notes alternating with rests really ought to be written as staccato 8th notes.
Are you sure this isn't a subtle attempt at fugue? :-P  Other than the opening, which doesn't conform to the "fugue formula" (whatever that means), there seems…"

"Erwin, stop being a dodo. It is not just you. Do I need to quote the wisdom of
Pink Floyd to make the point. lol ' Every day you are one day closer to death.' Get it?
Ergo, you have a finite amount of time to pursue your dreams... why waste it.  Get…"

"So nice of you, Roger, to decide when my time is wasted. When I am older? Man, you are babbling. You have no idea about me, you know nothing about me. And you tell me 'when I am older I have less time'?
You are simply not going to tell me what…"

"Erwin, my comment was constructive advise. Don't waste your time writing music for the harpsichord.

and have less time to write music…"

"HS-TO, What contradiction?  To me, i.e. IMO, the harpsichord died out just after the

Similar to my 'opinion' that the fugue has seen better days.
Simply stated, I call it like I…"

Interestingly, this is probably why they named the piano the piano,…"

"@ HS,
Wiki tells me: "On the whole, earlier harpsichords have smaller ranges than later ones, although there are many exceptions. The largest harpsichords have a range of just over five octaves, and the smallest have under four. Usually, the…"
