Well, I had redone it by the time I read this. It flagged a bit here in there the first one and I had omitted to open the piano lid. As for dynamic contrast, I believe to have done even more than called for but never mind. I had done a second piece (considering I had only read it a couple of hours ago, that was a record for me who takes six months to do anything). It was
good until my daughter came along and started to chatter
. I will try again later.
Thanks David for your comments. I have an impressive amount of music for children: 5 albums I compiled for a (hopeful) use by my daughter: there is Prokoviev, Poulenc, Rebilov, Kalinnikov, Kabalevsky, Grieg, Schumann, Bartok, Gretchaninov, Gliere, Beethoven, Bortkiewicz, Miguez, Scharwneka and so on. The Russians are quite good at it.
Thanks, Riley, I agree with you about the runs: I went out of tempo there. See how you like it now.
