flameproof, i've got to say the more i hear of your compositions, the more impressed i am. i only know a few of reis's pieces (blame alan for the pun) but to my ears you have captured the mood and harmonic colour of them really well, i would agree with denian. melancholy, melodically beautiful and with harmony complex enough to be interesting. this is just a first impression as i just listened to it once, but i hope to learn it and get to know it much better. just the piece to play in a bistro around midnight. thanks for offering the score, and your own very impressive recording.

Flamey, that's what I call an utterly convincing performance. I thought your mature phrasing throughout was something special. :bravo: and :merci:

Moo.

Thanks, Moo (unlesss you're calling me old!)

Thanks for your comments, jimmyneutron -- a pastiche is a piece written in the style of, or using motifs taken from, another. So you could try and pass this off as a piece by Reis -- let me know if you're successful.

Ah, got it...thanks for the explanation..I'm not too familiar with Reis though so I'll listen to him a bit first...still tho, a wonderful piece regardless!

Beautiful romantic music! :bravo:
I've listened to this at home a number of times - I finally realized that you composed it too :roll:
Excellent work!

Does "YOUR NAME HERE" ever go on sale? I could use a little promo
What kind of latin is that - I can't seem to make any sense of it
"What why hide the desire for knowledge that others know?" :D

It means "Anything said in Latin sounds profound". It's there by way of a repost to another who made a habit of quoting Latin (which he himself didn't understand if you wan't my opinion).
