    13 minutes. Strong rhythm. Much of the music is driving, relentless. Some very strong bass. Very difficult. I wish I could play it!

    The mp3 uses the GPO Steinway.

    Hi Richard,

    I really like the theme, some development and tempo changes, your taste for poliphonic treatment of the chords (kind of "melody of chords" ).

    If I've to add a critic I would say the playback doesn't inflate enough life, and it shows a kind of "fat structure", yes "relentless" as you say... can be challenging for the performer and the listener as well.

    What I admire is your ability of creating so big form... I'm too lazy and frequently find my self working on very short forms instead

    Well, Fabio, thanks for your comments. They are deserving of consideration.


    I don't often write works of this length. But when the music seems to demand it, I do.

    The thread title was a mistake. When I have enough nerve, I will post the real Ragamans.
