    Casa de las Pulgas

    Well, here is

    Casa de las Pulgas


    which could be considered as "who took the turkey out of the straw", as it uses the same material, revisited and revised without reference to the turkey. Somewhat like ragtime, for which I have always had a fondness. Kitten on the Keys and Dill Pickles are high on my list of favorites. The night my mother died, she had me play some ragtime things for her.

    The mp3 was made with gpo Steinway.

    To listen, there is an mp3 bar at the top of the page. There is also an mp3 download button at the bottom of the page.

    To view the score, you will need the free Scorch plug-in.

    I love it!

    The rythmic ideas, and off beats are wonderful. Right repeatitions to the right places. Harmonic language that says quite a lot to me

    Since there is a score there (which actually I can't see cause I've tried numerous times with no succes to install the scorch plug in ), I assume that this piece will/would/could/shall be played live. It does sound difficult but not immensly really... (without having experience from grades myself. In greece we don't have grades... :-/).

    The reason for the above paragraph, is that the mp3 is not really good. So if you didn't spend any time on it, but just rendered it from Sibelius, then no issue to discuss. If, on the other hand you would like the recording to be a better one, then there are some things you could do.

    Either way, it is a great solo piano piece

    Richard, I thoroughly enjoyed this, I also love the subdued quality of the piano sound

    Loved it! Just excellent with the use of fragmentary
    references... subtle enough to work the piece without
    overpowering, but you just can't miss 'em. Some fine
    psychological slight-of-hand in that, Richard; admirably
    well done.

    Thanks. More on the way soon, with references a bit more than fragmentary!
