    Very nice playing Mr. Setrakian. I guess this was recorded on an electronic keyboard?

    It's a real piano? Wow, it sounds more like an electric to my ears. But nevertheless, you played very beautifully. I am sure that others will agree.

    Best,

    I always love to listen to a Haydn sonata, or actually any music by Haydn. Someone onces said "Haydn's music is not about love, hate, fear, despair etc. It is only about music". And that is exactly as I feel about his music. It is only about music which always feels very fresh free. If he had not been a contemporary to Mozart, I am pretty sure Haydn would be among the 3 most famous composers.

    And to your interpretation Setrak which is, as about always, technically perfect played and in a class that few can compete with. It does not sounds like a digital piano to me, even though I would not care much if it was and musically, this is a very interesting interpretation. As you say, the first and the last movement is played rhythmically very exact and stable, as I am used to when it comes to Haydn or any other composer from the classical period. Extremely musically well executed and the second movement breaks off from this in a thoughtful and almost poetic way and it works very well.

    Very well done and the recordings are up on the site.
