Hi Mr. Batsford,

I do enjoy your music. I have reservations calling it classical, but I certainly could be wrong. Some of what historic piano composers wrote could be challenged today, as to whether or not it belongs in the piano repertoire

thanks Riley

labelling is a bit of a tricky one. I think youre right, in the pure sense of the term, Classical isnt right for my compositions (altho classical composers probably may well constitute the majority of my influences when it comes to my piano instrumentals).

On the other hand, I dont consider myself New Age, as I feel my work has more structure and purpose and a wider emotional range than much of what I hear in that area.

Contemporary works, but isnt very descriptive.

I sometimes go with meditative but again, dont feel thats quite right.

But when communicating about my music to others, some kind of labelling is of course very useful. I find I adopt different ones according to context.
