    Those were all very well played, Leonald. Nice sound, touch, balance. I keep meaning to get this book and play them too.
    I really like that Barcarole. It sort of reminds me of Granados.

    The Barcarole reminds me of Franck.

    Lovely performances ! What a great cycle this is, considering it was written piecemeal and on commission.

    I like your unsentimental way with nr.1, a difficult piece to bring off convincingly (it's a bit too long really).

    The white nights is beautiful (I love that piece, so full of innocent starry wonder). I would have liked the middle section to make a bit more impact, it seems to me like a short but exhilarating nightly troika ride (does one ride a troika during may nights ? I'm not sure...)

    The Barcarole is also very well done. A couple of minor slips in the turbulent middle section, and should that last chord of the middle section not be an arpeggio ?

    Again I am not too keen on the swimmy piano sound but that could just be me.
    I hope you will complete the set as you are evidently totally at home in this repertoire.

    This was really good, no doubt and I liked the performance all the way through, ending with the most famous of them.

    Cannot help thinking about poor old gay Pyotr who faught his way with despair through life. Trying to fit in and married a much younger student of his. She turned out to be a nymph and demanding more than he could give and in despair, 9 weeks after the marriage, he threw himself in a river but was saved in the last minute.
