    I loved it!! Is this from the live recording?? Why'd you edit out the applause?? I really needed that rush of raucous acclaim from the masses. Great sonata, great performance!

    Hope we hear a lot more from you!

    Very good job. What an ambitious undertaking for anyone, and you are so young. Keep up the good work!

    Wow thanks for all the kind words guys! I was just worried about the memory slip in that slow middle section :oops:

    Yeah I wouldn't mind having more applause at the end of the recording, but that's just where the person who was recording ended the track. Ah, well

    This is up. And I second all the others who say how amazing it is that you play so well for being so young.

    Excellent, a very convincing performance ! Ambitious repertoire, which you are already completely on top of. Seems like the Prokofiev style suits you very well. Yes that applause would have been well-earned. Will you submit the other movements of the great sonata too ? A pity that the piano sound is not a bit fuller and deeper, but that is something you can do little about.

    Yeah we used to have a Steinway in Orchestra Hall where the recitals are held... now it's just a Yamaha :(

    I just learned the last movement of it. I'll probably at least be in college before I work on finishing the rest...

    Very well done! Prokofiev's sonatas are not in any way easy to play or interpret so you earn my deepest respect from having this in your repertoire.
