    There's a link to recordings there.

    These recordings are from last year, before he went on tour to Australia.

    If I could find his recording of Beethoven's fifth concerto, I'll upload it, but it's a matter of scavanging through 1000+ CDs of classical music... His Beethoven stuff, I think is what he plays best.

    Very impressive, AJ. Too bad the recording quality wasn't so good. I thought the Albeniz was a well-interpreted Spanish romp - I really enjoyed that. The Mendelssohn was very good too, although I might wish for a little more poetic expression in the tender moments (especially near the beginning). And I'd use some pedal for that grand, keyboard-encompassing arpeggio at the end. Man, your teacher really got after that MacDowell. Some great keyboard fireworks! The Chopin was well done, too, in my humble opinion. A sensitive job with all the "ups and downs" inherent in Chopin.

    Thanks for the kind words. I feel like they're directed towards me, because I'm so close to my teacher.
