If you played this in, in real time, I stand in awe and wonder. If you didn't, I still stand in awe and wonder. It seems very playable in the hands of a REAL GOOD pianist. It is a very engaging piece as if reading a "can't put it down" novel and you can hardly wait to see (or hear) what is going to happen next.
Gorgeous piece, Richard... with its distinctly improvisational
feel very well supported with underlying rigor. Your frequent
exploration of water themes seems always a highly fruitful
avenue for you, my friend; and this is no exception.
Well, my computer room is finally usable, as the weather has improved a bit, and I was able to give some attention to your comments. Thank you, David and Steve.
Steve,I did not play this in real time. My present skills are limited, mostly to Mozart, Bach, Chopin waltzes, and Frankie Carle arrangements for piano. But I still think like a pianist and try to write like one. I have developed a fair facility and computer simulations for piano and organ!
David, it is interesting that my piece being performed the weekend was carefully written to sound the water theme. Originally, it was called Ripples & Splashes, now called Dorian Ripples.
