Any comments welcome. Especially regarding agogics -- did I take too much liberty? You certainly would not enjoy dancing to this any more... On the other hand, when I try to stick to the metrum, all the feeling gets lost. How do you play this one? Well, I look forward to any kind of tips.

Researchers at the University of Minnesota wanted to delve more into this and studied 250 students at the University. Their main thesis question was: what makes certain combinations of notes pleasant or unpleasant? Read more >>
