And what about Ives, Liebermann, Corigliano, Rzewski ? So much great stuff out there :idea:
But we seem to be getting a little OT here :roll:

We're talking about composers' of similar music to Mompou, so we're still on topic, aren't we?

None of these composers' music is like Mompou's.

Hi Monica,

1. Very nice opening. Perhaps could be a bit softer, but I do not know, never having heard this piece before. Monica, it is amazing how much repertoire you are learning!

2. Beautiful output of right hand harmonies.

3. Captivating playing.

4. Opening sounds just a bit like Chopin's Funeral March to me. Love your bass tone. Sounds great. Not harsh and yet pursuasive in a somewhat subtle way. Beautiful ending.

5 I think this needs a little more time for the eveness in the left hand. The intent of the music is abley projected throughout. Very beautiful use of dynamics and timing is exquisite.


6. Very well played. Perhaps with a bit more time, some of the sunburst like phrases in the right hand could be lighter. On the whole, a very enjoyable and interesting presentation.

Thank you Monica so much for sharing these beautiful pieces. Thank you for your hard work.

Much appreciation,

Kaila Rochelle
