those left hand tremolos really help this nocturne...I was expecting a Chopin-like composition but that's OK if I did not hear it. I enjoyed this piece though it tends to have lots of ideas for the right hand which some are developed and expanded upon and some are not.

Overall it's a good piece.

Will you have any more for us to listen to?

A little "Chinese" nocturne, as some of my friends put it. The direct translation of the name would be "the Journey of a child with worrisome ending", but it sounds quite silly in english.

I think that is a fetching title, and you should leave it. Reminds me of the book I am reading right now, which is titled "The troublesome offspring of Cardinal Guzman", part of a trilogy of which the first is called "The war of Don Emmanuel's nether parts". So, don't worry about silly titles, as long as they are colorful :lol:

This started promising, with a nice (if not particularly Nocturne-like) tune, but to my mind it quickly deteriorated into a series of disjointed gestures and far-fetched modulations. I don't find the whole thing convincing although, like with many amateur compositions, there are some nice ideas here and there.
