Hi everyone!

I wanted to share my latest piece. It wasn't that easy to record... first because it's easy to make some little mistakes in the ending part but also because as soon as I press record, I start over thinking every notes.

Anyway, I hope you'll like it!

This is going to sound strange as the first comment, but your pedal work is really terrific! The performance is so clean.

I like a lot of this piece. Have you considered repeating the opening material? There's a great deal of melodic material here and some repetition might cement some of it in our heads better. For example, instead of landing on the C# chord at about 1:42, go to the V (G#), then repeat starting from the beginning. The whole section from 1:42 to the new section at about 2:04 sounds like an extended coda to the main theme. Somewhere in there I was waiting for the plane to land, and then to go back to the beginning. Then the middle section starting at 2:05 will be a nice contrast. Then maybe you could return to the main theme a third time at 2:48, giving it a rondo flavor. Anyway, I don't mean to rewrite it, but it's a compliment that my imagination went there.

And I assume you already know it sounds a lot like this song. Not close enough to worry about, but I heard it right away of course. It's a standard, but I picked a piano rendition for you:

Hi Jim,

Thank you so much for complimenting my pedaling! It's a first and it made my day. Your point about adding more repetition is extremely valid. I do like this always changing (or almost) shape but, I think you definitely made a good point. You would have liked to hear some themes more during the piece, I definitely take it as a compliment.

I definitely know this melody but, I actually never gave this piece a proper listen. It was not in my mind when I wrote the piece but, maybe, it somehow influenced me subconsciously?

Anyway, I really appreciate you taking the time to write such a detailed comment! smile

8opus,
That was sublime.
Both your performance and your composition.
Let's hear more.
