A good set of ideas, but it wasn't really full enough, and it didn't displya the most ingenuity in rhythmic device or chords. There was very much of a development, it just kept going. Towards the middle it got more interesting, but the ideas seemed monotonous. Not too bad conceptually...

I definitely will work on this piece again to revise this a bit but it will stay true to its harmonies i guess.
Anyway thanks for listening and your comments. Appreciate it!

Some interesting harmonic ideas but you don't do much with them except turning them over and over again. In any composition (especially when termed 'Rhapsodic') one would expect more action, development, and drama.

My sentiment exactly.

Hi David,

I think the title works against you. "Rhapsody" is not a good match with the music, which sounds alot like a free improvisation of the "let the fingers do the walking" variety - "not that there's anything wrong with that." I used to spend hour after hour playing just such improvisations.

If it were called "M├ęditation Harmonique" or some such thing, the listener might be better prepared.
