flameproof - Tuppenny Reis

It was my intention to write a pastiche in the style of Dilermando Reis, I don't know to what extent I succeeded, but I quite like the end result.

Really excellent. For me you've captured that Brazilian saudade very well indeed. Aside from the lovely composition itself, your performance of it is quite moving.

:bravo:

superb :bravo:

btw. Reis means "rice" in German. Can't help getting a strange image of a not very filling third-world meal in my mind :shock:

Thanks again Vesuvio, nice to know your expectations were met. But now I'll be angsty next piece!

And thanks too, wolfgang. There's an English nursery rhyme: "Half a pound of tuppenny Reis!" -- it's a morality tale on the subject of profligate spending, or something (I don't really know -- English nursery rhymes are designed to confuse our youngest, and put them in fear of blackbirds, eggs, kittens and such).

So the title is really a rotten pun, sorry.

Hi, lovely piece.

Have you heard the Anthony Newley version of 'Pop goes the weasel'? That really does date me!! Here's one version of what the nursery rhyme means http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_does_Pop ... easel_mean

Thanks

:merci: Lovely piece - I played it from the monitor and though no tempo is given a later hearing of the MP3 showed my sense of a ballad style tempo matched yours almost exactly, though it does 'work' at quicker tempo too. Perhaps a sweet companion piece could include 'treacle' in the title :)

Thank you muirtan and avoz -- I confess I didn't mark a tempo because I couldn't make up my own mind. Treacle is on its way.

Great work once again, Flamey. This piece is beautifully written and, as usual, you play it well. It will be the newest addition to my Delcamp playlist.

:merci: :bravo:

But, "treacle?" You are too much. :lol:

Thanks for saying licaptn. As for Treacle, perhaps it would be too much, but then again it might also be carthatic -- I said recently to my mate Paula Lancroft that I'm currently stuck channeling musical candy floss, that just might be the way to get rid of it.
