Ingo Lee replied to Kjell Prytz's discussion Springtime inspired orchestral
"Hi Kjell -
Another well crafted and enjoyable piece you have written here. You have followed and developed your theme to the point of it being a theme and variations which is an excellent approach for this style of music I think.  This does remind…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Kjell Prytz's discussion Springtime inspired orchestral
"Good morning, Kjell.

"Hi Jon,

Ingo Lee replied to Kjell Prytz's discussion Orchestral piece with winter memories
