I should say, "It's great!" But I could not enjoy it. It is one of the ordinary contemporary music works with the sounds like "don~pyu- cha~ben den den". Sorry.

If bringing up a thread constantly is ok now, I think it should be ok to bring this one up again as well. I feel that this is one of my best pieces so far, it has piano in it and a big cadenza, and yet no useful comments so far, so... here it is again help

First of all Iori is a bit full of *ahem*, with that generic "anti-contemporary" comment.

Second of all, it's ALL SO PECULIAR that there's a LOVE recording of a piano concerto with absolutely not posts.

Thirdly, I'll admit that I noticed it before, but didn't have the time to listen back then (nor do I), so I'm sorry about that.

But I promise to listen and post my impressions!

And yes, you should bump a thread from time to time, if it's worth it... just don't over do it like someone else does! At least that's my opinion! grin

It's perfectly okay to resuscitate a thread. There are only two fair ways to "kill" a thread. One is to provide the ultimate comment which covers all bases and answers all questions. Posters who do this effectively are "thread killers". And it's definitely NOT a negative term.

The other way is to simply ignore it. Threads die of neglect. So I can never understand why people wanting to kill a thread post an answer. Neglect kills plants ... and threads. If you don't like a thread, then ignore it. That's fair.

Then the question of no replies. Some people avoid negative comments and feel that silence is the best response. I am not an afficionado of contemporary classical music, so don't feel qualified to comment. Or even make suggestions. Creating a piece of music .. or a painting or a poem, is an intensely personal thing.

I listened to it back when it was first posted, and thought that I had posted a response. I don't really watch this forum closely, so I didn't notice that what I had typed never actually showed up. That happens once in a while - things I think were posted just disappear into the ether.

Anyway, I remember being impressed by the piece, and that I enjoying listening to it. It held my interest all the way through, which is one of the highest compliments I can give for new music. I'm not very good at detailed commentary or critique, so whatever I wrote was probably not terribly intelligent in that regard, but I did want you to know that it had been heard, and with pleasure.
