    Turkey Test

    The link is a foot stomping rendition of Turkey in the Straw, using GPO Steinway. If you check it out, I would appreciate responses to the following two questions.

    1. Did the link work?

    2. Did you like the arrangement/rendition?

    If it works okay, I will have more to add to the blog, which for now, take me out of the web page building.

    Yes, extremely well arranged. Actually I found it brought Percy Grainger to mind, especially around 1:50, where it goes d minor-ish. Also Gottschalk figured there somewhere in the more virtuoso passages. The varied tempi worked well, giving it good variety and interest.
