Thanks - I definitely plan on using this again as an encore in the future!

Delightful, indeed!

I'm still envious of your arpeggios! :)

:shock: Wow, Andrew, that was awesome! I definitely could see the different composers in each variation on the theme. MAH did something similar, only instead of one theme in different ways, he made a medley of famous classical music pieces.

Now that you have played this 19th century Tetris encore, I have just the title for your next CD: Night at the Arcade :P

I'm with Monica - I'd like to borrow your arpeggios on occasion!

The Liszt made me laugh, and the entire piece was a joy.

BTW: I was addicted to Tetris in the late 1980's. I had gone back to school, and it's amazing that I did well because most of my study sessions would end in front of the computer playing that d**d*d game.

You have no idea how much the smudge at 2.29 annoys me!

Haha, if there is a follow-up, I'd like to include it. I have several ones from opera partly prepared. Beyond A Night at the Opera perhaps?

Thanks - it's written with largely humorous intent, right down to beginning with an absurdly overblown, portentous introduction to contrast with the much lighter theme.
