"   Hello. Just read your post. I know it is a bit late. I composed this piece a month ago. It is a mixture of late styles that contain what my interuptation is of two oppositions coming together. There are Syrian and English voices throughout."

"Nice piece of music Jon!
I felt that it was capturing just with sound colour all the predicament of these people-images being a bonus of cource.
Thanks for posting."

I am really sorry you brought all this up, and especially since in my mind it so gravely misrepresents our conversations.

  • Hi Mariza, just wanted to let you know that I've collected the three waltzes together and added a fourth which you might like. I've tried to turn it into a short concert piece for piano & orchestra. It is my latest video entitled "Ghostly Waltzes" Opus 3. I hope you enjoy the new one. Cheers, J Joe

  • Hi Mariza, thank you for <3 the Waltz No 3 and for your lovely comment. So glad you enjoyed it. One waltz led to two which led to three and now I think that makes a set for an Opus 3. You commented here once before and I left a message for you on Soundcloud by accident. Hope you got it. I sometimes forget which website I am on. Hope is going well with you and composing. I have listened to some of your compositions and like them very much. I will be listening more but I find locating things on this particular forum a bit tricky, as for instance I cannot commented directly to your comment so I'm leaving a PM on your page here. Sometimes figuring out how a webpage functions is harder than composing, and composing is pretty darn hard. ;-) Have a wonderful day. Will talk to you again soon. J Joe

  • Absolutely, Mariza!

  • It is a lovely little picture of Cole Porter writing at the piano. I got tired of seeing that lousy cigarette in my mouth!

  • Hi Mariza, shhh... just between you and me, you have added

    some good and needed balance to this zoo..er I mean forum.

    and some excellent music.   RS

  • keep up the good work mariza,you are a composer of real talent,the world needs more composers like you,best regards daryl sprake.

  • Glad to see you as a friend, Mariza!

  • Mariza, Thank you for your comment, I am very pleased to read this. 2 Allegro is the second part of a small suite for four guitars. this is my first experience of music for the guitar. Rain is an interlude from the opera Le Petit Chaperon rouge. I compose music recently. I have two operas for children now write the third. I plan to compose a ballet.

  • Little Prelude:  I love it - partly because of the perfect spice balance given by the subtle dissonances (composing is like cooking, perhaps) and also because it was so sensitively played.  ...The ending measure, for instance.

  • Maria, that is a fine idea! Why don't you suggest it to Tyler Hughes, the forum admin -
