Hello, Q,

I join those who preceded me in congratulating you for a lovely and well
executed piece. Romantic? Definitely, and in more than period! I find
the piece very melancholic, but beautiful; much the same way I feel
about some Chopin.

But... well... I just don't dig this piano sound... Maybe it's the
sample, or the way you EQ'ed it, but it sounds stuffed with cotton to me
and just doesn't come alive, neither in my monitors nor in my
headphones. Also, I think a nice room reverb would have complimented
this piece beautifully.

Keep posting!
