This, from when she was much, much younger, is even better still

My friend plays that one! It's a difficult one, isn't it?

i don't think so.. it's certainly easy to 'read'.

i suppose coordinating the pedal at high speeds may pose some difficulty but compared to Prokofief or Rach, ... well, it's my type of piece.

it's interesting to me to play Scarlatti... aside from Bach, if any one composer represents his place in time and history through his music, it's Scarlatti ( not well said, it's early).

one can hear the SPanish and Meditteranean influences of centuries past, feel whirling dancers, wonder about the action of the instrument that Scarlatti performed upon.. have the opportunity to play and interpret it on a modern piano.

his fingering is unusual but apparently Martha has no problem. I have always liked to cross my hands.. ever since i was a kid.

It is at times like these when I miss my piano teacher.

in the 2008 version of Martha playing is she using fingers 321 321? or 432 432? it seems like she is using 321, but it's such a blur.

must be 321321, the other one never gets that light and quick, and look sharp: it can be seen.
