The Virtuoso Piano Discussion-Contest! (First Attempt in Hosting a Contest)

You may recognize this post if you joined the Get Your Music Heard! group. I've been searching for a good piano solo song that shows a degree of virtuoso, intellect and emotion, for quite some time now, and I'm wondering whether the members of this group has got what it takes to impress me! Each week I will set a particular style to follow (that is, to compose), and the style of piece allowed will change every week. Here is a guideline for some simple rules to follow:

1. Instrument: Piano Solo only
2. Duration of piece: Maximum of 7 minutes
3. Style of piece that is allowed this week: Impressionistic and/or Etude
4. Only one piece per person per style
5. How to leave the comment:
Example -> Etude:

Example -> Challenge accepted: (add link)

The submitted piece must be at the same difficulty and/or harder than these pieces mentioned:

1. "Prelude to the Water Sprites" from Prelude to the Water Sprites/The Water Sprites Allure and Curse by The Curious Guy: 
https://musescore.com/user/151230/scores/5285021
2. "Splashes" from Reflections: A Suite of Picturesque Experiences by Skylighter
https://musescore.com/skylighter/reflections
3. "Prelude in G# minor" by trngl
https://musescore.com/trngl/prelude_in_g_minor
4."Etude in B major" by JustisB
https://musescore.com/justisb/etude_in_b_major_me
5. "Paraphrase on Carol of the Bells" by yesverymuch
https://musescore.com/yesverymuch/scores/4816420

CHALLENGE(S) OF THE WEEK:
a) Do an Impressionist music representing the sea that is harder and/or equal to Prince781's At Sea -> link: https://musescore.com/prince781/at-sea-wip

b) Do a etude for the left hand only

I will personally rate them from a scale of 1-5. I rarely give a 1, but it's also very hard to earn a 4.5 to 5. The winner is the one with the highest rating in the week, and those with a score of 4.6 and above will be featured in the following week's contest and may possibly judge the next style's contest.  I hope you join, and I look forward to listen! 

Best Hamelin Recordings

Marc-Andre Hamelin is widely acclaimed as one of the greatest virtuosi alive, and has recorded all manner of pieces. I would like to enquire as to the personal preferences of this group with regard to this Canadian master?

My own favourite recordings of his:

Alkan's Symphonie pour Piano Seul; Concerto pour piano seul; Le Festin d'Esope.
Liszt's Sonata H-moll
Saint-Saens' Piano concerto no. 2, third movemnet.

That last piece he performs unassailably.

Trombone Solo Christmas Arrangement

in Brass

Hello!
I'm not a trombone or brass performer myself, more of a classical composer and arranger. My dad plays trombone and had me arrange this piece for him last year. I was thinking some people on here might enjoy it (especially advanced trombone performers looking for a Christmas arrangement) Here is a link to a sample of the score: https://musescore.com/user/6280351/scores/5340571/s/gfZl7Y
If you're interested in purchasing the whole piece, here is a link to my website: https://dominioninmusic.com/

Have a good Christmas!

All the best,
Elijah

P.S.
  This is a very advanced but fun piece for trombone, so enjoy!
