Modern classic
Glad you like it.
Debussy and the impressionists make fine subjects for synth transcriptions don't they, as do renaissance and baroque composers. Somehow Wagner and Beethoven are too forbidding. However, i have couple of 20th century works in the oven which show great promise, in particular a real foot-tappin bit o' Stravinsky.

A bell Reverie
I like how you've reimagined this classic. it has a very magical sound here, My only nit is in the control of dynamics which isn't easy, I know. You've done a great joc, actually, considering the source of sound. I do, though have such respect for you to be working on these wonderful early 20th c. Pieces. Your Petruschka is pretty amazing, too.

Dynamics
Ah yes! That's where most synths fall short. They tend to ignore or at least diminish dynamic range and especially timbre. Thus old music with limited dynamics tends to survive translation better.
If you wonder what went into this, the piano version is here:

I'm trying to get my synth patches to respond to velocity, mod wheel, and expression more like a multi-sampled piano. Sigh... working on it.

Reverie
You can imagine that Debussy would have embraced new technologies and been captivated by synthesisers. The piece translates rather well. Nice artwork, too :-) Thanks, Peter.

I (De-bu) see it...
Sorry for my cheesy pun, but nice work. I think if Debussy were alive today he would at least be nicely flattered & amused. Thank you.

Wow.
Going through some of your stuff I've missed. This is simply lovely. The bass voice is to die for. Very nice.
