    This is a rather old piece from about three years ago, sort of encapsulating Baroque and Romantic eras together. A friend offered to play an original duet of mine in the near future, and so I've been thinking of arranging this piece for two pianos, and perhaps improving on it a little (like adding a bit more flower). It is a digitalized performance, but comments on the composition are welcome.

    EDIT: Attached a handwritten version of the score to the piece.

    Jonathan, I had a listen to your piece, pity there's no score but i can see why you are withholding it if your are still making some changes. This is a very interesting piece indeed. I think this more of baroque style piece and and I was reminded of a Bach fugue. Quite a difference from your 2nd Sonatina. I think Fantasias are the best types of pieces to write because they're basically no agreed upon rules. Or the one rule is that there are no rules :)

    Hm, you're right Riley. But I guess even the most free Fantasias must follow some rule (e.g the composer's aesthetics), especially when it comes to repetition and logical flow. The beginning and some of the middle is indeed Baroque, but I imagine the development is more romantic in nature. Think I'll start transcribing this after my exams (and maybe a few more recordings of Rebikov (re-doing the 3rd piece as people have suggested), and Medtner).

    Actually, I had almost forgotten but I do have a 'hand-written' score for the piece. I'll upload it right away.

    I know that you posted this a while back, but I had I bit of a hiatus. Life happened.

    Anyway, I enjoyed this piece. Yes, it starts out very High Baroque, but you take the idea and run with it into a flashy piece that sounds idiomatic for the piano. It has flash and style.
