    Hi Thomas,

    Promising stuff, from someone who looks quite young still.

    There is much to enjoy in these 3 pieces. I like your way with the Lecuona Malaguena, even though you
    could be more relaxed and sultry. The middle section of the Chopin is nicely done too, but the outer movements
    suffer of too many fumbles and missing notes. The sound quality is not too good to be honest. The Grieg is on
    the slow side but mostly well done.

    There is however one general problem, which is accuracy. These are ok for live performances but don't really bear
    repeated listening because of the too many flubs. Recordings for Piano Society don't need to be absolutely perfect,
    but must have a reasonable degree of accuracy. If you can improve on that, you'll be doing fine. Musicality and
    talent are there, I think, it's just a matter of more polishing.

    Note that recordings for PS must be submitted as mp3's, not as Youtube videos.
    Hope to see you back !
