    Question Harvest Dance (Piano Sketch)

    Sometimes a simple tune pops into your head and sticks!
    Before I spend time developing it further, I thought I’d seek some valued opinion.
    Anyway, if nothing else, it might just raise a smile on this cold UK Autumn day.

    Here's the link:

    It was performed using the original GPO 1.0 sampled Steinway piano.

    Hi Alan,

    Simple but sweet!

    I think it is worth developing and alternating between the more quiet part
    and the more jumpy/fun part starting at 1:30.
    That will give it balance and interest throughout.

    I enjoyed it even though it is still summer here...

    Hi Alan;
    It is a very nice dance, as played on piano. If it were me, I would be tempted to orchestrate it out. especially for the Strings. It does have a pleasant nature and makes me think of the countryside and I LIVE in the country, so there you go!!

    Thanks for posting, I enjoyed it!

    Best regards,
    sd cisco

    That's a well crafted tune. It works very well - I'm sure it could be used in lots of ways.

    My wife came in during the playing and said "Oh great, now it's going to be stuck in my head all day too!" Take that as a compliment!

    Well done.

    Thank you all for your interest and for your kind words of encouragement.
    I'll get orchestrating then.
    Cheers
