    Splendidly played ! You have an obvious affinity with Schumann's volatile romanticism. I cannot think of anything to pick on, except the slightly metallic ring to the piano's middle and treble register. I wonder if you have the mics too close to the strings ? I had the same in some early recordings, and it got beter when I moved away a bit.

    I am just working on creating your page on the site. Can you please provide some biographical information and a photograph ?

    Beautiful! You play the phrases very lyrical with a singing tone.

    It was a great pleasure to listen to your both Schumann recordings!
