    Thanks for your kind explanation about the intonation, Andreas.
    And because I respect both of you, gentlemen, as excellent amature pianists, I hope you get along with each other well.
    Actually I presume there were some subtle misunderstanings in exchaning opinions in English... (which could happen to me easily :roll: )

    I take advantage of Hye-Jin's wise words and apologize for my not so wise ones. Of course I still believe that Mendelssohn's Duetto would gain from a lighter and more playful approach, but I admit I could have expressed my view in a more considerate way.

    Thank you, Alf, :D I apologize for to have taken your not so wise words "nearly too serious", in german: "fast zu ernst", for to express it with a title of Robert Schumanns "Kinderszenen".
    BTW, a lighter and playful approach is really a good possibility for this piece. As soon as I have time, I will make a rerecord for to try out this possibility, which is a matter of interpretation and taste, of course.
