    Dalgene Suite is dead but Dalgene Caprice lives

    Dalgene Suite is no more. It has been re-assembled into a new form and much of it cast aside for possible future use.


    Time is about 11 1/2 minutes.
    Vigorous and lively. Quite difficult.

    Hi Richard,


    I think this is one of your best piano pieces although it does sound like it would be very difficult to perform. There was a lull later in the piece but not much of one. Maybe the playing chores should or could be shared by two pianists.

    I cheerfully agree that it is one of my best. Also, it is rather a lot for one pianist, but not quite enough for two, without padding, which I don't like. Thanks for your comments.

    Hi Richard,
    I find it appealing, a lot of creativity going in.
    There is a lovely contrast appearing at 7:45, a change of style. I like that bridging.
    It is not so often that 12 min of piano is able to keep my attention, but it worked well here.
    A bit sudden ending.
    Well done overall.

    Thank you. The ending is part that I like least. Perhaps it will eventually change.
