Thanks for sharing your composition, Bert! For me, it sounds a lot like late 16th/early 17th century lute music. It was very beautiful.

Glad you liked the piece, Luuttuaja. I can't say I haven't been influenced by baroque music.

Hi Bert,

thank you so much for the score on your site. It is a very interessting and beautifull composition and I did work on it since you posted it, and I can only recommend it. It is a very nice piece for medium level and the counterpoint study did really add something relevant to your compositions. I am happy that you shared it on the forum and it is a nice oportunity to have somesthing new to play, as I was a bit tired of my repertoire and needed something fresh. I didn't get bored with it until now, which means that the voices are really subtile and unexpected! Congratulations and all the best.

Hi Christian,

And thank you for your comment AFTER playing the piece for a while. Glad to see that it keeps being interesting to you and that it enlarged your repertoire.

I never know the level of the pieces I write or arrange, so I have to take your word for it.

Regards, Bert

Yes it is medium level for sure - I did some changes in the fingerings which are more confortable for me. First I thought I could play it right from the sheet but it's a bit more challenging than that...

Hi Bert!

I really enjoyed this piece. To me it invokes quite a bit of Renaissance and Baroque feelings and textures. I thought you played it quite beautifully. Thank you for sharing!

Thanks Ryan,
I've been doing a lot of baroque pieces, so that rubbed of. Glad you like my playing too.
