You made me desire a big fat cigar...

I like it. The line of the melody wasn't clear to me directly. But after hearing trice this isn't a problem for me anymore.

The last chord came as a little surprise. 🙂

It's good. It doesn't sound like an elegy but it's good.🙂

Nice piece! I wonder if there may be a way to notate this that is simpler and more clear to the performer about how the tempos and phrases are related? For example, the time signature changes. Nothing wrong with how it is, like I said there may be a better way?

One specific thing is your pedal notation. In Sibelius (it looks like you're using Sibelius based on the font), there's a different kind of pedal line that doesn't re-use the "Ped", which can help clean up the score as well. It's in the same area that you use currently to find the pedal lines.

Musically I love your harmonies and melodic content. Beautiful to listen to, and to me evokes a sense of "remembering". I enjoyed it!

Thanks.

About the tempos and phrases I don't understand what you mean. In the opening there are different time signatures, but that's exactly how I want them to sound. In fact, I think this is clearer than this:

About the pedal marks, yes, I can do it the way you said. I'll take note.

I'm not using Sibelius.

Now that I see it written the other way, you're definitely right. Maybe I've been teaching middle school/high school too long and am getting stuck in a rut of simpler time signatures...

Anyway, I did like it 🙂

It's very difficult to play a triplet on an off beat BTW (measure 9). Where does the 3rd note of the triplet go? Because it doesn't go on the 2nd beat. That was the only thing that bugged me. Other wise it's very lovely and I love emotion you produce.
