A very simple piece and gets your point across.  As someone who used to be an avid piano composer, who loves romanticism, and loves the winter, I had to comment.  This is such an expressive piece and this expression really draws me in.  How did you get your composition to sound so rubato?

I can really hear your talent for such expression.  I would personally love to see you expand on your ideas, you know how to portray emotion so well in such a short length, imagine what you could do with a piece of a greater scale.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, you started off with a solid introduction, peaceful, and almost sorrowful.  I believe a solid introduction is incredibly important and something composers miss the mark on at times.  If you can't draw someone in from the very beginning, you lose your audience's interest.

Thank you so much for your kind words, chopin. In answer to your question, the rubato just seemed really natural for this piece. I tried playing it in very strict time, and that didn't work at all. It wants to be rubato.

I intend to write longer pieces, and also for other combinations. I have always loved string quartet music, especially the string quartets of Bartok and Ravel. I'm working on a choral piece now. I'm not in a rush to write huge pieces, but I hear orchestrations when I write, so I'm sure that's coming as well.

I'm with you on that.

@jana

I really like your piece. Would like to hear the full development of this one.

If you didn't plan to continue this one... please do :)

Have you ever listened to I am Setsuna soundtrack?

Thanks for the encouragement! I had not heard of I am Setsuna, and I looked it up on YouTube. Beautiful ! Interesting you should bring it up, because I have a podcast, and the biggest percentage of listeners after the United States is Japan ...
