    "Pumpernickel"

    Y'all,

    Here is my "Pumpernickel".

    (When you run out of titles, you grasp at any straws.)

    Great work! Could really be a piano concerto here! Awesome counterpoint as always. This piece is full of delightful optimism; I highly enjoyed listening!

    Holy cow Larry!

    How do you do it??

    I second Sean: Let's hear an LGA Pumperconcerto No. 1!

    It actually reminds me a bit of the ice cream man. Not too sure why...

    The bit in the middle with the mordents and plucked guitar (?) was a neat transition. Unexpected at first, but it fit well and was the part I enjoyed the most.

    I really enjoyed the thematic development in this one Larry!

    Best,

    Reegs

    Here's to thematic development.

    Thanks for all of the kind words. They are appreciated.

    A pleasant romp, Larry; enjoyed it; and I'm quite pleased
    you didn't call it Seedless Rye...

    I am going to rob names from the Periodic Table Of Elements for titles next. Wait 'til you hear my "Argon". It's a gas!

    Why not just call it "Hans buys Ashley a new 2007 model Segue"?

    I agree it invokes a cheerful optimism, nice work, Larry.

    Thank you.

    Although I know what a Segue is, I have no idea what your "title" means.

    Re: "Pumpernickel"

    Well, Larry, I'm a whole grain kind of guy, myself. Still, I can enjoy pumpernickel - and I surely did this morning when I heard this. Like the arch quality, with the piano solo coming back at the coda. It is interesting to me how you seamlessly combine the baroque and ragtime styles in many of your works. The motoric rhythms contribute to this, but you have a very distinctive synthesis that makes your pieces very recognizably yours.

    On another issue, have you tried different kinds of reverb? I'm no audio buff, but I think you could sweeten the sound with a little more ambience. Or, play with the placement of the piano with regards the orchestra - on some of your pieces, they sound like they are in seperate environments. How to do this? I haven't a clue...sorry (it's easy to break the eggs, harder to make the omelette). Anyway, just a suggestion.

    All the best.
