    Hi to all,
    I recorded an improvisation from a schatch of my new piano piece, so I apologise for some technical mistakes as I am a quite bad piano player :)
    If you like it I might write it down, ofcourse with some improvements which I wasnt able to play.

    I hope some of you will like it and every comments are welcome!
    its about 5 minutes long,

    I think that out of all of the pieces that I have heard by you, this is my favorite. I especially enjoy the theme that shows itself around the 3 minute mark. First off, I wouldn't go so far as to call yourself a bad piano player. This piece would be difficult for many to play. It seems that you are tied to the Alberti bass quite often. I find myself in the same situation but with a waltz rhythm, I just can't seem to break out of it despite my many attempts. I don't think that this style necessarily hurts you, if that is the style in which you want to write it but I don't think that this style is appropriate for everything, despite its ease and utility for emotion. One criticism I have: the glissandos towards the end of the song struck me as unnecessary. Personally, I've always found any sort of glissando, whether it be a huge chromatic sweep across the piano or a series of short strokes, to be compositionally lazy. But that is only my opinion, and there are times when it does work to great effect (Beethoven's "Pathetique", 1st. mov.).

    Keep up the good work my friend.

    -Tony H.
