I found the scores for these in another section. The minuet was a delight to play and quite fresh and harmonically fresh and unusual . It felt in a similar mood to Poulenc's Sarabande. I didn't 'feel' how the Homage should sound when I tried to play it, but on hearing it played it immediately sounded 'Debussyesque' ; a fine piece

:bravo: to composer and player
