10 Improvisations recorded in December 2009 - February 2010

The Improvisations in this set are not intended to combine as a single “set” (except for Improvs 4-6, which are a little set), therefore these are “Stand Alone” improvisations.

6 Improvisations recorded in August 2009

7 Improvisations recorded in June 2009

24 Improvisations recorded in December 2007 - January 2008

A large set (over 4 1/2 hours long), slowly becoming more complex as the set moves along.

The set is divided into 4 subsets.  The first subset consists of Improvs 1-8, and moves slowly towards a climax.  The second subset consists of Improvs 9-12, and is sort of like a free-flowing, slow sonata.  The third subset consists of Improvs 13-18, and moves towards a deeper kind of climax. The fourth subset consists of Improvs 19-24, and is the deepest and most complex part of the Set.

7 Improvisations recorded in June - July 2006

Even though Julius Schmidt has been improvising since he was very young, however, the first recordings of his improvising were not until the summer of 2006.  They are mono recordings, but are extremely relaxing, even being used in hospital reflexology departments to help relax their patients.
