    "Prelude Number Eleven In D minor"

    All,

    This is my just-completed "Prelude #11 In D minor". It is strenuous and technically difficult but it is playable.

    It features the Garritan Authorized Steinway piano and is in the ABCAB form.

    Here is the non-detailed score in PDF format.

    Regards,

    Larry

    Hi Larry,

    I liked this piece very much but i think a bit more reverb would suite this piece.

    Thank you for listening but the reverb is sufficient. If I used more, the notes would run together and the result would be a "muddy" mess.

    Larry:
    I was a little "disturbed" when the beautiful fluidity of the triple meter feel was interrupted with the duple, repeated note section, but that's just one old man's opinion. You still get an "A" for form and harmony.

    The only reason that I wrote the middle C section was to give the listener's ears (and mine) a respite from the frantic sound of the "never-ending" triplets.

    Thanks, Mr. Steve. I value your opinions.

    My best,

    Hi Larry,

    A fine composition and excellent, realistic rendering -- very parlor-like, befitting of this style. I think one of the things I especially like about this piece is that -- instead of the little surprises with which you deftly infuse so much of your music (thoroughly enjoyable when you do!) -- you pretty much played this one straight, and with very successful results.

    This sounded musically pianistic throughout, and certainly -- as you mentioned -- seems to be quite playable, albeit a workout as well!

    Thanks for another really fine musical work, Larry!

    Yes, a good work out for the ear also.

    Now that middle section I might be able to handle on the piano.

    Another well crafted piece.

    I probably couldn't even play the middle section, Mr. Phil.

    Many thanks for your support. Appreciate your listening.

    How you keeping Larry?

    Reverb? They can't help saying that from Yeovil - the place itself is muddy mess. Anyway....

    Funny 'ole time sig there Larry - I was thinking maybe 12/8? Who can say. Anyway - way too difficult for me to have ago at right now.

    Keep it going.
