Elene 2010-10-22 11:44:17 A challenging piece, and played with a lot of verve.
Andy Platt 2010-10-20 21:53:44 You can almost hear the teenage angst in that piece. I loved the contrasts you brought to it.
timmyab 2010-10-20 12:08:52 Great job!This waltz recital nearly turned into the E minor waltz fest, and I'm not surprised that it's popular because it's a fantastic piece.I wonder why he never published it?
heidiv 2010-10-20 07:20:50 Loved it!
ab-ster 2010-10-19 21:11:45 Very nice performance. Thank you for submitting this. I really like the way you stretch out the middle section and go bang the chromatic bass section. It's very dramatic.
gerg 2010-10-18 20:11:17 Hi Mel! It's such a privilege to have your participation once again.

I am amazed by the popularity of this valse. One of my associates has a 91-year-old mother who is quite active, who still plays the piano, and who takes lessons. She's pretty good, actually, when she overcomes nervousness. I was privileged to hear her play for the very first time today. She played Chopin 9/2 and her ornaments - fantastic.

She also plays this one and I've been asking her for years to play it for me, and really hope she will some day.

Your rendition is wonderful, and I too am continually impressed by your playing and so happy to hear this splendid recording from you!
Inlanding 2010-10-18 14:43:07 No question you were in the right frame of mind to play this passionate Waltz. Fire and enthusiasm are clearly portrayed. Thank you for your music - Bravo!
CMohr 2010-10-18 13:25:02 Yes, a very passionate performance! Bravo! (Excellent recording also).
Strings&Wood 2010-10-18 09:12:11 I enjoyed the dynamics and passion you put into this piece as well as the elusive give and take . Very nice!
LisztAddict 2010-10-18 08:32:09 You are very good at playing Waltzes, as always!
Mistaya 2010-10-18 00:13:49 Hi Mel! I always look forward to hearing you play and this brought a big smile to my face - full of drama and fancy finger work. Inspiring pianism.
