Here's a piece entitled "Romance" I composed. It would be interesting to hear different interpretations from some of you fine pianists.

Wow, how do you get that old fashioned engraved look? I've been trying to make my scores look like that for ages.

An old friend printed this for me. Not sure what he used.

Come to think of it, it probably was engraved.

Very beautiful, John!

One aspect that I particularly liked was your harmonic "suspensions" (don't know if that's the right word); for example in measure 13, where the right hand melody starts on a note that is dissonant in the chord but then resolves to a note of the chord, or in measure 17 where the left hand has a g minor triad, but the right hand starts on an A, causing a sharp dissonance, and then resolves right away to the B which is part of the g minor triad of the left hand.

Just to let you know I printed it and will get back on it after I play it a little. I don't really have any way to record it, I don't think except on a cheap unweighted keyboard - ugh! I need to get some mic's for my piano if I ever have some spare money laying around.

I hope you enjoy it Sara - thanks.

As jpw101 pointed out the L.H. of bar 10 should have a natural sign on the second ā€œAā€. Also in bar 11 (next bar) the last ā€œCā€ in the left hand should have a natural sign.

Best, John

Played through it some already, I am having fun with the expressiveness. I haven't done a piece I can really be expressive with for a long time, I started thinking where have I been - I've started with a new teacher that's helping me almost soley improve technique so I've been doing stuff like Clementi.

Your piece made me realize I've not played something like that for a while - shame. In the least maybe I'll try to send you a cassette tape recording if I can get the piece up to snuff. I was really pleased how relatively easy the score was that it wasn't something totally over my head to learn. It's not always easy to tell that from a recording minus a score.
