    Via Dei Chiavari

    Via Dei Chiavari is a small but busy street in Rome with scooters and small cars buzzing along it.

    Nice! I'm from Rome and I know that street (not so busy).
    The street is near Campo de' Fiori, Piazza Farnese and Piazza Navona, three of the best places in Rome.
    The only issue about your piece is that has more Napoli mood than Rome. In roman popular music there's more major than minor. I enjoyed anyway...

    Great atmospheric, program music. It does recall the mood from light transitional scenes in Italian movies. It wouldn't have been out of place in Il Meglio Gioventu (if I spell that correctly; my Italian is rather weak). It's quite charming, catchy counterpointed themes, well orchestrated, good sound. Nice.

    Thanks for the insight into Italian music "dialects." I will remember this in future work. I'm pleased to meet someone who is familiar with this little street. I only know it because I stayed at the Chiavari hotel.

    I really enjoyed this! The transitions into each idea are REALLY smooth (something I can't seem to accomplish), and the orchestration is really nice.

    Thanks for posting!
