    Two Pianos in the Redwoods

    This idea has been rattling around my skull for a long time, but I could not find a way for a pianist to cope with it. So the simple solution, slow in appearing, was to write it for two pianos. So here it is, with 2 GPO Steinways.

    Some of your richest work, and perhaps leaning a bit more tonal than usual,
    Richard; but nonetheless pure unadulterated Wayland shining through...

    As you know, I'm quite a follower of your music, Richard. I believe this is
    indeed one of your best. This fuller sound and greater depth really suits you.

    A strong follow-up to the Petronella Sonata

    the third movement of which I was quite taken with.

    All my best,

    Richard,

    Nicely done composition!!! You truely hit upon the correct solution, 2 pianos. I am imagine the balance between the two plus you get the benefit of inherent stereo.

    Richard,

    This is nice, very very nice!!! I'm not good with describing why i like a piece, or describing it's compositional attributes, but my ears say this one will get lots of play time on my computer. Thanks for sharing and thanks playing dual Steinways.

    David
