Thanks, Monica. I had to improvise that bit because I started the verse on the wrong beat. ;\)

Thank you *all*. I have loved listening to each and every piece. There was joy to be had in all of them. My grumpy "I'm so sick of getting ready for this holiday" mood is totally gone. It was such pure pleasure to hear them.

M&H, that's great I didn't know that song.

Mahlzeit, nice "tannenbaum", I like the improv.

Text, for 11 months that is a really good start.

Very pretty, Johan! I really liked that arrangement, too. Where did you find it?

And congratulations on posting your first recording! Does that mean we can look forward to a recital piece from you in February?

text, White Christmas was the first Christmas song I played. I think I was 6 years old. I still have the (very simplified) sheet music. I wish I could play "by ear" like you are doing here. Very nice and dream like interpretation. How appropriate for the piece?

Johan, very nice job. That is an interesting arrangement of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. I've always enjoyed that song.

Hi Monica

Thanks for your kind feedback. Hopefully I will continue to contribute to the ABF recitals.

I had organ lessons when I was a kid for a while but I hadn't touched a keyboard for over 25 years before I joined Pianomagic, which was when I bought my first piano.

cheers

Text, a lovely rendition, I remember we talked about einaudi last time you were here, have you tried any of his pieces yet?

Well played, Monica, has she got chops or has she got chops! Lovely.

Johan, congratulations! I enjoyed that arrangement immensely. Well played!

Your latest is sublime, Tim. I think I've said it before but your improv reminds me of Saint Saens or one of the other French romantic composers, very delicate, very tasteful and refined.
