Thank you, Chris! Coming from the harshest critic of this piece in previous recordings, this is most gratifying; not because this is revenge :) , but because it has indeed improved.

What does dispirit me a bit is not so much criticism in itself, but when two people offer different ones and there is no idea which road to take or, as happened once, when supernatural sounds were heard in one of the recordings I submitted.

I feel that while before I was on the threshold of a new phase, I never quite went further, for one reason or another and, when I joined, I was very much going backwards! I have altered my approach and I am not longer concerned with hitting the right notes but with making the notes say something. Incredibly enough by doing this the notes take care of themselves and I feel I make less mistakes than before, though still too many!

Had you been nice and sweet that Arietta would not have come. Come to think of it you were, because you accepted the first one, hoping for a redo, and there! it came!
