    These two lovely miniatures are declared by Takemitsu as "Piano Pieces for Children". The first one is called "Breeze", the second one "Clouds".
    Everyone who thinks that modern composers are not able to write in a beautiful tonal language should listen to them.
    I hope I did all the tagging and file naming correctly.

    Takemitsu - Clouds (1:41)
    Takemitsu - Breeze (0:44)

    They're cute indeed. Takemitsu is even trying his hand at jazz, and it is quite endearing. Well played too, though I guess these are quite easy.
    I will put them up later.

    Nice job.

    Takemitsu's titles fit the pieces, too, unlike some other modern pieces for children that I've heard.

    Thanks for putting them up.
    It's not a big issue, but you put "Clouds" first and "Breeze" second, whereas in Takemitsu's score it's the other way around. Furthermore, they are correctly called "Piano Pieces for Children" and not "Children's Pieces". It's up to you if you want to change that, for me it's also okay as it is.
    I also realized that if you click on my photo on the Piano Society main page, you get an empty page. (The link is: http://pianosociety.com/cms/index.php?section=3368 ) However, if you click on my name in the "Artists" column, you get the right page. (The link there is: http://pianosociety.com/cms/index.php?section=3369 )
