Hello Raymond,

Your Scarlatti is sweet without being sentimental, very expressive within the bounds of limited use of dynamics,
has a perfect use of non legato without sounding detached.

Thank you for a beautiful and touching performance.

Hello Raymond,

I think this is the first time I've had the pleasure of hearing you play here at PS and enjoyed your Scarlatti rendition. You follow the Baroque traditions while at the same time allowing your performance to be expressive on the modern piano. The piece has much charm and I enjoyed listening.

I agree with everyone else. This is a most enjoyable performance of the Scarlatti sonata. It is expressive as it should be and with the appropriate dynamics and articulation. Continue the good job!

Just a question, why do you refer to the Longo number on the video and to the Kirkpatric one on the audio?
