Again I apologize for my absence here in the Listening Room. In between battles I have managed to 'complete' a piano work that I would like to dedicate to both Jack (Rhap2) and of course Gary.
I have been playing with the new Steinway and I am simply thrilled with it. I am still having some trouble to control it the way I want it, especially the dynamics, but it is such a delight to work with.
This piece is a short fantasie called «L'espoir» ("hope" in English) and it simply shows my excitement with this wonderful instrument. It is only lightly tonal, and nothing like the competition piece I composed to win this instrument. I guess you could say that I "let the hair down" for a while....
If you want to see the score, which is not yet done completely, you can find it here.
I hope you will enjoy it.
