An old piece of mine in baroque-ish style I suddenly got the urge to record.

Done on Yamaha CP50 with impulse reverb added later.

well for most people here its unique and this a very nice hommage to bach good work

Very nice.

Simply beautiful, but where are baroque ornaments? Where is harpsichord's sound? It is surely baroque-feeling, but it could be still even better.

Thanks for your comment!

As far as ornamentation and harpsichord goes, this was never really intended as an accurate pastiche, but rather as a hommage.


odd in a good way, has some nostalgia to it and reminds me to certain parts of the ending credits song in howl's moving castle


Congratulations. This piece has earned a nine. This is a revolution of audio work on Newgrounds. This is indeed the first baroque piece of seen here. The execution is flawless, and the piano solo is finely orchestrated. This piece is filled with varying ideas, and you weave theme together like web. Each phrase could develop into its own story, but it's all held together here. There is a beautiful climax and ending. Wonderfully reminiscent of Prague, this piece is without a doubt the best, and only of it's time on Newgrounds. There is simply so much to praise. Phrasing, dynamic contrast. In an age of rock and metal, we are so rarely greeted with a slow lasting piece which is able to generate such a nostalgic, and elegant calm. Very, very solid.
Thank you descara sir,
It was a pleasant experience reviewing this, as well as your other work.

Very old school composition.

This song reminds me of something that you would hear on an ancient vinyl hidden away in your grandmothers attic; At the same time though, this song is oddly beautiful.

The piano dynamics are brilliant, and the composition style is seriously unique. It seems that very few people can write music like this nowadays. You have put together quite an amazing piece here my friend, and I really can't wait to hear your next one; you have some real talent wit the keys :}

Overall; amazing piece of art

Thanks for the very kind words! Though I dunno if I'd call it unique myself, it's mostly just a hommage to Bach arias, sarabandes etc. ;)
