Recently I had a conversation with a fellow NS member about how we composers often tend to be our own worst critics. It can be a very big problem for many, myself included. I went through such an experience with the minuet I recently posted. At one point early into the mix I absolutely hated the piece.
I think this may be an issue for my NS friend and I want that person to know that they are not alone. Its something we all go through.
So......... I decided to dig out a piece I wrote 10 years ago... Way back when I was an idealistic young man I wrote and recorded this piano quintet. I have never let anyone hear it. I never put it on a demo. And to a great extent I put it out of my mind. At various times I have been very critical of a number of aspects of this piece. Some you will hear, others you may not but as an homage to my NS friend I decided to be a fearless composer and I present it here to hear for the first time and leave myself open to comments of any kind.... be kind ;-)
