Wow, thanks so much for the thoughtful commentary! In person I'm more of an "intellect" than "emotion" type, so I guess some of that shows through. But over the years I've also been trying to infuse emotion into my playing, and I think I've improved though I have a long way to go. I'm glad you enjoyed the recording. And yes, I really enjoy the piano; its bass has a nice gutsy growl to it when I call for it. I'd be interested in your reaction to my Op 31. No. 2 contribution (just the Adagio).
Cinnamonbear 2010-12-17 22:56:26 Chris--Your playing is so controlled, intentional and thoughtful. I hear "intellect" behind your music. This was a joy to listen to, and I kept getting surprised as you turned corner after corner with each new idea! This comment goes for all four movements, btw. I get the impression that you are leading your listeners very carefully through this piece, phrase by phrase, movement by movement. Your piano sounds wonderful, too. You get such nice rich Beethoven harmonies out of it with that deep resonant bass. Commendable performance!
