"Good morning Dane, Thanks so much for listening and your comments! Yeah, playability is a bit of a challenge, I wrote it with a different instruments in mind. The lower notes double bass pizzicato, the accompaniment pizzicato string and some…"

"Hello Saul, Very well done Saul! Beautifully composed and well executed!It almost has a Debussy-like mysterious atmosphere. The harmonies are original and well chosen. It makes me feel pleasantly uncomfortable because there is a threat in the air…"

"What a lovely spritely piece, Joost! Just what I needed to get me woken up today along with my usual coffee! About the right length too. I think a few dancers would want to catch their breath as it finished. The harmony flows beautifully and you…"

Saul Gefen replied to Joost Visser's discussion Impact
"Joost, I first commented on this yesterday saying that the main theme of this music is similar to that of Beethoven's third movement The Appassionata but then after listening to it several times again I came to the conclusion that the piece is…"

"Ahh, thanks Gregorio...hmm....maybe I should give it another name since I didn't really set out to write a Gavotte. I was trying to come up with a name rather then uploading it as a number. Coming up with a proper name is more difficult then…"

gregorio X replied to Joost Visser's discussion Gavotte
"Just to mention a bit more about the 1/2 bar upbeat.. Yes, the dancers, but also, with this type of phrasing - ideas begin and end in the middle of measures (beat 3, and beat 2, respectively) - giving a buoyancy to the flow, (where starting and…"

"Hi Gregorio,Thanks so much for listening and your comments! You're right, it may be a bit of a challenge to play.....:) well spotted!In fact, I wrote it with a small orchestra in mind. The lower notes will eventually become double bass…"

"This is a charming piece, Joost.  Your subtle manipulations of tempo, and dynamic shading offer a realistic impression of one playing.  Just a couple of things... In many spots there are extentions of RH of a 10th - which may be impossible…"

"Hi Ingo, I like the clarity of the work, it’s beautifully transparent and the score is a pleasure to read. You present a consistent atmosphere where I find lots of small surprises. One such surprise for instance, is the one in bar 34, the…"

Hello all,
I am an airline pilot who recently lost his job due to the Corona Pandemic. To find a new job in this market is hopeless so I started to compose some music.
I'm working with Logic Pro on an old MacPro that doesn't allow big orchestral settings unfortunately. So, for now, I'll try to write for piano only.
I would love some feedback on my pieces since I lost my objectivity. Anything is welcome......
