It sounds like Schumann is doing a good job of challenging everyone. I love these themed recitals to introduce me to new music I might have otherwise not tried! I was not that familiar with much Schumann other than Traumerei, but I have listened to

Thanks for your post. Now that I have invested both time and money into piano studies (my time is more valuable), it would be devastating to suffer some kind of injury or medical condition that would either diminish or remove my capacity to play and

Very well played, and presented. Bravo! I would just like to hear the overlap section in a more balanced manner, keeping all sounds at equal volume. Thanks for sharing.

myip; It seems you have two nice choices here. Please keep in mind that even the 2003 is over 11 years old, and depending on how it was used, cared for, and maintained it may have more issues than the 1996. However, if both were to pass muster fro

Looking carefully at the Waller picture, I think it may be a posed shot, he's not really playing. There's no motion blur anywhere, particularly not on his fingers. Here's what he's doing: L5 is on Gb2. L4 and L3 are relaxed and not playing.
