I thought it was great! The sound quality was great too and captured it all. Very well played! smile

Pianovirus -- IMO, that was just a superb presentation of how to play Schubert. Just exquisitely voiced and shaped throughout. In general terms, I find the introspective piano music of Schubert far more compelling than his virtuosic efforts (the Wanderer Fantasy being the prime example) -- the latter are clumsy to play and for me not thoroughly satisfying even when played really well -- but the Musical Moments are for me just vintage Schubert. By all means, thanks for sharing this!

Thanks B747-400 and Tim for listening and for your comments. Happy to hear someone enjoyed it. Of course, there's always more work to do in trying to approach these wonderful pieces.

pianovirus, I use this collection of pieces as a litmus test for musicianship - for students and for myself.

You pass with flying colors! Thank you for posting.

Thanks so much woodog, musica, and Gerard, for your kind comments.

As much as one can learn from constructive criticism, from time to time it's also motivating to hear some pure words of appreciation, I admit smile
