This is my 2nd soliloquy for celesta. I have used the instrument in another piece by itself and as part of a duet in another series of pieces.

I don't know what soliloquy means but it is a nice little tune. I like how it starts as primarily octaves in the first 3 measures and then it goes to an obvious melody and accompaniment in measures 4-8. I also like the ending chords. But just so you know, you don't have to put the same dynamics in both staves. A celesta player, like any other keyboardist will understand the dynamic in the middle of the grand staff as applying to both hands. So the only time you need to state 2 separate dynamics in the same measure is if you want compound dynamics, i.e. different dynamics for the left and right hands.

Thanks for your review and opinion caters. Also thanks for pointing out the dynamics issue. I was not clear about it. I will keep that in mind in the future. I updated the score eliminating the extra "F".

Regarding the 'soliloquy', it's a short piece for a solo instrument. I have a more detailed description which I couldn't find right now.
