    "Les Champs"

    All,

    This is my "Les Champs", featuring the Garritan Steinway. It dates back to seven years ago when I first posted it here on the forum.

    The left hand may be disconcerting to some of you. Throughout the work I wrote the accompaning chords on the first and third beats of the measure and the root notes on the second and fourth beats. This is backwards to the standard compositional form.

    Take Care,

    Now I'm all Disconcerted!---hehe, no, I like the loping stride of your rhythm pattern. And as always, the consistently bright twinkle of your work made me smile, Mr. Larry. Thanks for re-posting something that goes back to even before I was here - now, That's a long time ago!

    Take Care,
    Larry,

    I really like the feeling to the left hand here. I'm glad you explained it because I wouldn't of figured it out. I just knew is was off kilter a bit, and you know how I enjoy off kilter!
    May I use that technique in a future piece of mine without upsetting you? I really like the effect and would love to use it sometime. Thanks for sharing this!!!!

    My best to you up there in the great NorthWest.

    After reading the description I had to hear it for myself. Very interesting technique and a wonderful little piece.

    It sounds like a 'rag' is threatening to breakout at any moment, held back by the controlling left hand.

    Aye, Lad, there is a wee bit of ragtime underneath it all.

    I thank ye for havin' a listen.

    May all of your clovers have four leaves.

    Yes, Larry,


    A tricky ragtime with a classical undertone. Ragtime pianists would love this one (out of the normal).

    Thanks for the lighthearted lovely pice, Larry!
