Hello (original piano music inside!)

Hi! I am new here so I will introduce myself. I've been an avid reader of Tolkien for a few years now, and I am currently working my way through the HoME. I am involved in the Tolkien society at my university, and currently I have been inspired to write some solo piano compositions inspired by The Silmarillion. Here are some links to them.

May the peace of Elves and Men go with you!

It's always cool to welcome a fellow musician! We have several around here.

I added a little to your thread title to let people know what's inside. Your compositions are beautiful, and performed well! Nirnaeth Arnoediad was my favorite, I think. Thank you for sharing.

Welcome to the Downs, Joahob!

Lovely compositions... and like Legolas, I especially enjoyed Nirnaeth Arnoediad.

Welcome, welcome!

I must say, Joahob, if I could get my hands on the notes to the music you write I would totally play just that. That is, if I can. I'm not sure I'm technically anvanced enough yet...

Anyways, I'm in love with it! May I be the first to say that I particularly like the Finduilas composition, though all of them are very lovely!

Thumbs up Welcome and lovely compositions!

First, welcome to the Downs, Joahob!

Second, the three compositions are lovely! I particularly like the one on Finduilas.

Do please let us know when you have other pieces available. I'd certainly love to hear them!
