"Hi Saul, thank you for the feedback! I agree with you for this piece regarding the pauses, I think I am going to try to connect some sections differently.

"Thank you Liz, Ingo, and Gerd for your kind comments! I am very glad you enjoyed it :) I was nervous that people weren't going to like it, it's kind of a new approach to me, so I'm glad to hear this.

Francois Jenno replied to Francois Jenno's discussion Valse Miniature
"Thank you for the feedback! Indeed I have been told the same about the pauses. For this particular work, it is what I intended originally, to create some tension and release. When I play it myself, it sounds better to my ears, but it is a subjective…"

"Thanks again for the comment! I have been told the same thing about the pauses from many people, I do see your point of view. I am going to try to record it properly, because I feel it sounds better with more resonance from the pedal.

"I don't get the pauses I have said the same thing on your other work. I think you need to create more cohesive and complete phrases.   "

Saul Gefen replied to Francois Jenno's discussion Nocturne miniature
"Hi Francois,

I don't understand what is the purpose of those rests. It seems to me like someone is walking towards somewhere and stops from time to time but I don't understand why. The music is not giving me any clues, so maybe you can explain,…"

"Very nice Francois, harmonically interesting with some gently eccentric phrasing.  The style sounds familiar but is still your own. I enjoyed it."

Liz Atems replied to Francois Jenno's discussion Nocturne miniature
"This is a lovely piece! Very much a nocturne, rather Chopinesque, full of beautiful modulations and harmonic inflections. The pulse is unusual and a bit hard to make out - in fact, without the score I would be hard pressed to figure out whether it…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Francois Jenno's discussion Ballade Miniature
"Hi, Francois,
These are simply lovely pieces. Very late-night, dreamy, ethereal - quite the kind of pieces I'd love to play after midnight in the atrium of a mansion (if I had one!) I could imagine someone in a long gown standing listening on a…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Francois Jenno's discussion Valse Miniature
"This was the one piece of the 3 that I found difficult because of the pauses. Sure, it's beautiful in its way and you modulate around bar 52. Another night piece and although seeming easy to play would need quite some control to play with just the…"

"I enjoyed listening to it. I liked the alternation between the fast staccato and the long notes with the pauses between them. Nice work."
