    seems quite different for you.
    I liked it very much, however.
    (esp. the timpani bit around halfway through)

    I am presuming it's not a "solo piano with orchestra" work, but rather that the piano is PART of the orchestra? without seeing the score, I can only go on ears. my impression is that the piano writing wouldn't really be entirely idiomatic as a solo work. but as an "integrated" part of the ensemble, it works.

    Thanks for listening, Michel.
    The piano lends a special sound to works.
    Since my piano writing is not a strength, it serves as an orchestral color.
    I think a particular instrumentation can assert a different character into writing.
    I select different groups for different purposes.
    The limited winds in this keep it "clean" as demonstrated by B Britten. I frequently work with his idea in mind. Quite a change from my early imitation of Copland.
