Hey Mr. Larry, - long time ...
I think I remember this work. You churn out so much it is hard to keep up. Maybe you could provide a link to the other version for comparison.?
Of course this is very lively and animated but there is a subtle "negative" drama here of a frantic pace in desperation. ? OK maybe not but thats what ears told me.
Wow, I really like the string only section that starts in the middle of the work. Great change and a needed pause from the harpsichord. Beautiful string writing!
Your music always puts a "smirk" on my face!

I wasn't on board here when you first posted this, Larry, so I'm glad you did a bit of a "redo" to post again. I absolutely loved the frenetic energy with which you infused this piece and -- as Michael mentioned above -- the string writing is really, really effective. I admire your wonderful talent and prolificness!
Thanks for your nice message, Mr. Michael. It's appreciated.Originally Posted by Michael A. Wiktor

As usual, you've done it again. I'm running out of superlative expletives for your vast storeroom of creativity.
I liked the tonal shift ca. midway through and I preferred the Harpsichord to the Piano (just a personal thing.)
I'd encourage you to keep writing but that would be redundant because "you" and "keep writing" mean the same thing.

Your comments mean a lot to me. Thanks very much.
I listened to the Piano version first and I will be honest. About halfway thru I went ho-hum. Then I went to the Harpsichord version and got blown away!!!
This piece just goes ballistic and soars away with the Harpsichord. The string interlude is delightful. Part of it I'm sure is in the mix, but it is also because of the instrumentation.
Thank you, Maryland Dude.Originally Posted by rolifer
I remember this one.
I was going to listen to the piano version but then I remembered you have a gift for great harpsichord music and I was correct.
