Interesting, but not my old fashioned, culturally English concept of a romantic piece.

Dear Andrei:

The piece is really beautiful, thank you so much for it.
And I am not surprised that thie kind of Romances as category are not as known in the Western culture as they deserve. Correct me, please, if I am mistaken, but I have an impression that they come from, or are similar to Russian and Gypsy musical culture, often were acompanied by singing...Aleksander Wiertynski - in terms of climate/character. And I feel traces of Ukrainian "Dumka"...So from certain point of view you are an ambassador of this kind of music. :bravo:

As always

Jacek

Dear Jacek!
You are absolutely right. The genre of Romance is unique. This is a kind of song but not the song in its usual understanding. Romance (yes, Old Russian Romance, Gipsy Romance, BTW, Gipsies adopted old Russian Romances and thus appeared a new genre - Gipsy Romance, which is Russian in its base but presented in the special Gipsy flavour) is a bunch of emotions, it has not sung by voice but by heart. For more than 30 years I accompany to my friend, great singer in our program which is called "The Noble Style of Russian Romance". Also I published in Italy the book of my own arrangements of the most popular and beloved Old Russian Romances for guitar. This book got very positive reviews in Classical Guitar and Guitar Review. :merci:

- yes, Andrei, this genre is unique.And I think that it deserves better recognition in the world. And it was quite known and liked in Poland in old days, as many of people from generation of my Father (born in Kiev, in 1904 when the Family was slowly returning West from being sent to Siberia) liked these Romances a lot. I have to search for scores, I still remember tunes but I never played them on my guitar.

Wow!, Jacek!
My father also was born in 1904!
Yes, you are right, this genre really deserves better recognition in the world. Because of that I made a poetic translation to English of one of the Romances I published it that book and also wrote a very interesting Preface where told about the genre of Old Ruassian Romance, added some pictures.

Hello Pajarillo, my comment was not meant as a criticism in any way. As I said the piece is interesting and I do like it and admire your ability to compose. My comment was more about how the concept of "romantic" varies from culture to culture, and that, if anything, I am the one who needs to expand my concepts and appreciation of different musical styles. There was a certain irony implied when I said " ..not my old fashioned culturally English concept of a romantic piece." I was not intending that my comment be taken too seriously. My apologies if my remark seemed critical, that was not the intent. :?
