    "PolyKeys" (two versions)

    Y'all,

    This is my "PolyKeys", in two versions with many key changes.


    GPO Harpsichord version

    GPO Steinway version

    Gosh, Larry, I was just moments ago listening to a similar comparison on Richard Wayland's Harpsi Something versus Piano Something post... and I find myself saying about the same thing.

    Personally, I much prefer the piano version.

    The harpsichord version, to me, seems to lose too much of importance to the piece -- the resonant harmonies, the dynamics... and the tempering influence of less aggressive harmonic structure in the sound itself.

    Then again, it's true I come from a "blue state"; so it may be mere innate wimpery, of course... lol.

    Poly Keys -

    Larry! I have Poly Keys too! Keep 'em in my right front pocket! There's the house key, the car key, the church key, the work key. POLY KEYS!

    (The preceeding was an exceedingly lame attempt at punny humor. )

    Regarding the Harpsicord and piano versions of a very fine composition. Larry. I like them both. In all honesty, I like the sound of a slightly brighter sounding piano. The piano sound coming through these cheepo speakers on my work computer sounded just a bit dull. It's most probably these speakers. But this has nothing to do with your wonderful composition. Just my wierd taste in piano sounds.

    Each time I listen to your compositions, I sit and listen in awe! You write really well crafted music and this piece is no exception.

    As always, I enjoyed the listen. And this time I enjoyed the listen twice. One on the harpsichord,and the other on the piano.

    Cheers!

    Thank you for the nice reviews, Theodore. They are appreciated.

    I didn't get as crisp a sound from the piano as I usually do, so it's not your speakers.
