    Very impressed by the performance. Clear phrasing and control show full understanding of what is played. Excellently recorded sound.

    A splendid performance! I enjoyed every second of it and posted a tweet to advertise the recording.

    Hi RIch,

    The tone in the first movement is pearl like, shimmering and introverted when needed. The piano is like an instrument that conveys delicacy and introspection as well as assertiveness through your mastery of this piece.  I do not know the piece but I found your playing to be very beautiful. When you come out with your crescendos it is within the context of all that proceeds. Your blend of intellectualism, sound poetry and feeling is fantastic.

    Beautiful job in the second movement. Very controlled feeling and very ballet like too. Bravo. I love the way you bring out the melodies in the left hand. There is a subtle bit of fun in your playing as well.

    Very artistic playing in the third movement. Beautiful use of the pedal.

    Thank you for sharing your performance.
