What a beautiful piece. Though I did notice the small clash at about 35 seconds in. I'm quite pleased, though, with the intricate weaving of art and sound. Two thumbs way up!

Priere I found most beautiful! Beautifully played too!!

Guden tak Frederik,

Aaah finally my pianistic ears' appetite is quenched! I'm so glad I've been giving myself a treat and perusing your CORNER today! The orchestral pieces I've enjoyed are masterful, and finally..
I found the treasure:
http://www.magle.dk/audio/priere.mp3

Which shows amazing ability in composing and performing piano. :tiphat: :clap:

I do not want to sound like that person who mentioned Lord of the Rings about the organ improvisation.. he he.. :eek: but being the noteworthy person I am (musical noteworthy only, or should I say noticing) I have to say that the beautiful c-g-a-f motif in Priere, if you added f-c to the end making c-g-a-f-c-f becomes Close Encounters of the Third Kind. I love that song too. I hope you don't mind my reference there.

Is Priere a theme and variations kind of thing? Isn't that a French word or name? What does it mean? I'm sorry to ask dumb questions. :shake:

I thoroughly enjoyed Phoenix, Intermezzo, Cantilena, Let there be Light and Light On Your Path. I even light the lightness of the titles (pun intended he he.. :rolleyes:). I often use for my signature 'Love and light-being'. So I am a fan, musical follower, forgive my asking:

Is there a story or myth associated with "Lys Pà Din Vej?" Your forums have lit the way, you shine very bright, but puns aside, I am inspired by the titles as well and would love to hear any stories about what they mean.

Thank you googols for your forums, music and everything. Sincerely, Teo ;)

Thank you, Teo! :)

"Prière" (which means "Prayer" in French) is actually an improvisation, in the same way as the Cantilena.

The story behind "Lys på din vej" (or "Light on your path") is that Lys på din vej was a a piece I composed for - and performed at - the Christening of Prince Nikolai (Son of Prince Joachim and, then, Princess Alexandra) back in 1999. It is meant to cast light on the path of life for the child. A year later I recorded the CD "Lys på din vej", and included some improvisations, amongst them "Prière".

It is my indeed my pleasure to provide these forums, for the joy and - yes - enlightenment of music lovers from around the world!

Best regards,
Frederik

A beautiful sentiment, and a very beautiful piece of music

A beautiful sentiment, and a very beautiful piece of music as well. :clap:

You have completely succeeded with your forums, they have lit the way, lightened my load and maybe even enlightened me. From a sordid (musically that is) past I am now a classical pianist (hopefully).

I'm always in awe of great organs as well. Thanks you for sharing so much of your music and experiences. Wishing you every success and joy along your path! :tiphat:

Sincerely,
Teo
