    Nice to see 'Incorrigible One', again. You played so well, and we can see that you don't even have to look at the keyboard very much. Thanks for the video.

    That was very nice to watch a wonderful Christmas gift! You do a very good job at the piano Raymond (the other participants perform very well too). However, I cannot grab these videos from YouTube and put them up on the site. If you wish to do so, you need to upload the standalone video files too.

    Dear Juufa.

    The transcription was by Liszt--A minor

    Raymond, it was a great pleasure to watch and listen to your playing. You show a deep involvement into the music while performing. And your playing by heart of this demanding Prelude and Fugue couple shows what is possible in advanced age. Really great!

    Especially it was also interesting to me because I am just about to learn that original Bach Prelude and Fugue BWV543 on organ. I still get goosebumps already when that low A note starts on pedal in the prelude, lasting for no less than 14 bars (what needs of course to be repeated on piano, the effect on organ is really greater).

    Thank you for sharing!

    A solid and powerful performance of the Bach-Liszt. And from memory as well ! A true achievement.

    That Jingle Bells is cute. Normally I cringe at an ensemble containing harp and flute, as well as that inane ho-ho-ho song, but this is really well done. These guys are talented, and they swing.

    Raymond, thank you very much for sending me this beautiful video which can be watched endless of times. I especially enjoy your performance of the Liszt transcription of Bach's Prelude and Fugue in A minor. It is now up on the site in mp4-format (use Quicktime etc.) and I have located it in both Liszt Transcriptions and Liszt Concert Etudes. If you have another idea how you would like to present the video on the site, just let me know!
