The ideas around minute 3 that you mentioned are inspired by timbre of some oriental instruments like Guqin, that's the reason why the motifs can not be easily spotted. Those parts are a more rapid and rush execution of the piano techniques used in my variations in the passage mentioned above.
    I meant that a few passages sounded unperformable, but if this isn't a midi recording, then nevermind.

    It is because I have been practicing some of the most difficult modern piano pieces for years, and have already developed a certain level of performing skills before I recorded the blue moon. I had the skill level required to play Rach's 3rd piano concerto seven years ago, and had been developing my own piano techniques since then. I have been practicing the Blue Moon for a month before this recording.
    For example, this piece
    Wolfgang Rihm - Klavierstück Nr. 5 (w/sheet)
    My Blue Moon is a bit more skill demanding in some passages than that piece and I have studied that piece before, but that was years ago. I have other compositions that were more skill-demanding than Blue Moon, but I don't want to share those yet because they were etudes for myself to develop my own playing techniques. I can perform Blue Moon any time live because I have been practicing and polishing this piece for a month after I first completed the original version of the piece in a day. Most of my works (not just my piano works) are skill demanding up to a certain level, but they are all performable, since I never write instrumental music that is unperformable. By the way, "19th century" is one of my impromptus when I think of the Lengend of 1900, and thus the title.
