Wow again!  I just listened to Golliwogg's Cakewalk.  Will I ever live long enough to be able to play like that?  I have my doubts.  You should be selling CD's.

Your EXCELLENT playing makes me feel jealous. Wow  :D
It all happens on Discworld, where greed and ignorance influence human behavior... and perfectly ordinary people occasionally act like raving idiots.

A world, in short, totally unlike our own.

Hey, yeh well done another impressive post! I have the music for Dr Gradus, but thus far having had the guts to start learning it :D. You play it very well though.  Serenade of Doll is equally nice, you have a nice touch on the piano in all these pieces but I don#'t know the others very well other than Golliwogs so I can't really commment. I play Golliwog's though and thought it was very well played although a little slow and too heavy for my liking, but that's a personal thing and since it's Debussy is kinda the point IMO. So well done, ........give us more lol

Great stuff! The Children's Corner Suite has always attracted me and I think you do a really good job out of it. Thanks for posting this.

who is this music by? first time i've heard it, it doesn't sound like anything in particular to me, it seems bland not sure what it's about.  that is not a comment on you gaer, your playing sounds good.

Claude Debussy.  These are examples of French Impressionism of the late 19th century and early 20th century.

Gary, well done once again!

Well I listened to your Dr Gradus again and I think you play REALLY great. I have a lot of version of this piece on my hard disk but this one's just as I like it.

Dr Gradus is one of the music pieces I love most. It's also interesting (and fun) to hear transcriptions. Here are some links:


Wind sextet:

The Riverside Wind Consort (https://www.riversidewinds.org/)
Their version of Dr Gradus is here:
https://www.colleges.org/~music/GRM/DebussyChildCorner/Debussy%20Childrens%20Corner%20winds%201%20Dr%20Gradus%20ad%20Parnassum.mp3


Flute quartet:
Steven Tung (Scored for Flute, 2 Alto Flutes, and Bass Flute)
https://stevetung.com/music/flute-music/stevetung-doctor-gradus.mp3


Xylophone
Fragment, don't know who this is.

Another wind version (fragment) by unknown

  Really wonderful playing; especially enjoyed The Snow is Dancing.
