Not what I was expecting David, but I like it. Well done.

Good to see you here again!
Something is wrong with the file though...
This is just classic David.
Your music is very identifiable and always a joy to listen to.

David! Welcome back!!
What an amazing and rewarding experience that was; Brilliant and scintillating use of the Winds; you have pushed the envelope further with this one, I think; a lot of refinement evident and this includes the very fine sound, overall.
Bravo to you David and congratulations on such an accomplishment!!
I found it a great listen and quite inspiring!
Excellent piece. Thanks for your efforts.
Bravo avid! It sure is good to hear your voice again. I think I'd recognize it in a blind listening test in fact.
Nicely written and orchestrated. Thanks so much for sharing.
Oh I almost forgot to mention that by the sound of the piece, your rotator cuffs must be healing very nicely
This is a beautifully crafted piece. I've listened to it a few times, and each listen is more rewarding.
However, I do have some difficulty in classifying it as a jazz piece.
It's good to see you back.
What a unique road you are walking!
This piece shows another step forward in your vision and expression.
There are battles going on but clarity is becoming more and more powerful.
The final part of the piece is absolutely stunning!
I can hear influences of Bernstein.
Polished to perfection!
I see you finally got your driveway shoveled out! I would likewise say welcome back, but I haven’t been “threading” around here very much either, so to me you never left.
Anyway, moving on to the important stuff.
Once again I find words (at least the ones I know) are not adequate to express my admiration for this piece. It is, after all, flat out brilliant. I’ve now listened to it 8 or 9 times and I can’t wait to see the score. I can truthfully say that this piece is fast becoming my all time favorite Sosnowki piece, and I have a lot of contenders already slotted in for that #1 position.
In my mind’s eye, what makes Beethoven so great is his sagacity regarding musical form/ cohesiveness of the piece as it were; and his ability to take a simple rhythmic motif and systematically create countless superlative variations from it. All this is likewise abundantly evident in your piece.
The 4-note motif that the flute and then oboe starts out with, slowly, almost imperceptibly matures and with diminution, transforms into an exciting rhythmic escapade with the piano taking up the theme and snare and timp punctuating and volleying the rhythm back and forth simultaneously. What great stuff! I might add that the percussion is such an integral part of this piece, you forget it’s percussion, if that makes sense. Rather than hearing a “bleep here and a caplunk there, you hear an intergrated wall of color with all the other instruments.
And then comes the middle section that calms you back down to Earth with its mystic-like entwining of orchestral colour; concluded with a perfectly paced recap/coda. What a gem David!
I so much admire your work, can you tell?
