The name of this piece is "Obsession" and yes it took over 20 years to compose, including the occasional edits. If you are a composer then you understand why an idea will not let go, hence the title. It is moderately easy to play.

I totally get it!
I've been working on one piece since the early 80's and still not done.
Not a piano piece though, multi-instrumental jazz recorded on 64 tracks.
Same OCD perfectionism tho.

Thanks Rubin for sharing ! Your persistence for 20 years to finish this composition is very admirable

I'm not so sure that your time has been well-spent. I was immediately reminded of Respighi's Gli Uccelli.

I can hear it being a middle section of a three or four section composition.

Better late than never! I suspect that the composition would not have been so heartfelt if you had forced yourself to do it earlier.

Just so you do not spend another 20 years figuring out this website, this post would be more appropriate for the Composers Lounge or the Pianist Corner.

Not to be a curmudgeon, but as a composer who has obeyed the rules of this forum I agree.
