    That title is an "Enigma"... don't tell, I know the solution. A typical "Larry" piece. Suprising and as always joyful. Thanks for posting this....

    Greetings,

    Mr Larry

    I am getting a weird sound in the left ear as if something is too hot. I do hope it is in your mix and not in my phones. It was only for the 1st 30 seconds or so and went away.

    This piece as was said is typical Larry.

    Great job

    Old Larry:

    A prodigious outpouring of preponderous proportion, but you can't fool me. You are expanding your horizons with such modernistic displays of mode switching (Maj. to Min and back,) abrupt modulations, chromaticism, turning the beat around (mixed meter?) and those ever popular "hemiolas."

    I don't know what it could be. It sounds OK here but I will check it out.

    Thanks for your message.

    What a wordsmith you are, Mr. Steve!

    The doctor said that my hemiola would require surgery.
    As always, I appreciate your input. Thanks.

    Of all your pieces this is not my favorite. There's nothing wrong with it, but honestly, I prefer your woodwind works. lol. This is however a good work, and I am happy to say that you did another justice to piano technique. Bring me more woodwind or brass!!!

    The title is amusing - took me a second or two to get it..

    I enjoyed this. It gallops along briskly. The change of pace at about 4:20 was especially delightful and amusing.

    I didn't find the change at about 2:10 when the strings carry on without the piano as satisfying - it isn't bad but it seemed more serious than the rest of the piece which is quite jocular. This is just a quibble.

    Well done.
