This is pretty much perfect now!
Very satisfying conclusion to a truly inspired variation set.
I have so enjoyed writing this work. Enough that it has gotten me exited about writing more for piano. I had told myself earlier in the year that I needed to write a piano sonata. Well, this piece was the impetus pushing me to start work on one. I don't guarantee that it will be finished in the next few days, however!
Hearty congratulations to you, Michel, upon the completion of your opus 40. I thoroughly enjoyed the previous incarnation, and was really looking forward to hearing your completed version when I saw you'd posted it.
Wonderful, musical magic. Thanks for letting us hear it!
I admire this work in the extreme.
hehe, Randy I didn't mean it in a demeaning manner.. I meant more along the lines of "your musicals aren't always my cup of tea, but I learn something and appreciate it when I DO take the time to listen to them", meanwhile, my music is a bit different from yours...
And looking at your subject line again reminds me how much I can't stand that acronym for the Steinway - "Gas"--good heavens. Always makes me think of a certain bodily function. Not aimed at you, Michel, because Gas is what people call the piano--but yikes,--I wonder if Gary anticipated the use of that acronym when he titled the Library "Garritan Authorized Steinway?" Oh well!
Congratulations on finishing your variations. That's quite an acheivement do have so many variations and keep each one unique and interesting in it's own right. Well done.
At which point did you turn the orignal music upside down and view through a mirror? (J/k'ing - unless of course, you did. :-) )
