I myself haven't composed too much, so I can't really say too much on the structure of the piece, but I think it would be a good idea to add some articulation and dynamics to the piece. And maybe it might be better to have an actual recording rather than a MIDI file.

That is an actual recording. Recorded from line out of Dp to recorder, and then converted to mp3.

I am not in a place to give analysis about your composition. But, I listened to it and I really "LOVE" this composition very much.

Since I'm just a beginner I can't say much about the technical part and the structure, but to me it sounds great smile like it very much

Thanks gfa, glad you enjoyed it.

Signa, an earlier version has been on some other websites for a couple of years. one version has lyrics and vocal. This is the latest revision for piano solo just recently completed. Perhaps you may have heard one if the earlier versions.

Thanks for listening.

I enjoyed the piece a lot. It's got some things in common melody and harmony wise as a piece I wrote last year, except mine was in F#m, but you have some interesting chords and some spots where it goes to things the ear doesn't expect....which I like a lot. Good work!
