    VALSE - Improvisation

    Today my hands were very cooperative, so why not:

    VALSE 1

    All improvised, a bit Pjotr I. Tchaikovsky at the end (I think).
    Unpolished, unplugged, unedited, un-whatever......

    And how wonderfully your hands cooperated with your heart on this Valse!
    Again, as before, I find your music evokes images of romantic Europe, I hear in this music, something of the ageless poignancy, which is central to the meaning of what Europe is, to myself, and to others I am sure! This improvisation is a beautiful demonstration of your understanding of that meaning.
    Thanks for sharing, exquisite!!!
    Best regards,

    Nicely done, Raymond, with, to me, its rather
    Viennese sensibilities.

    There was a day when one was not considered
    much of a musician were one unable to improvise.
    It's good to see more of it lately in our forum!

    My best,

    Thank you, guys. Recently I noticed that some of the "flexibility" in my fingers have returned, due to some intensive excercises. Now I am ready to study piano techniques again, so .....

    Nicely done, Raymond.
    I think Eric Satie stands out here, and WHY NOT!
    It's a unique experience to allow yourself the freedom improvisation allows. It's closely akin to flying.

    I have finger problems also, caused by the statin drug LIPITOR.
    I couldn't use my left hand to play sax for a year, and I can't play clarinet yet after 3 years.
    I discovered 2 good hand strengthening exercises;
    stretch all the fingers as widely as possible for 10+ seconds-repeat:
    clench both fist as tightly as possible & pull the thumb down to the little finger. Don't create pain-repeat all day long.
