About

I am interested in a wide range of repertoire from Bach to Brubeck. Discovering Sound Cloud has opened a door to an amazing global pool of shared talent and ideas. Thank you for listening to my recordings and I welcome any comments. Favorite pianists - Murray Perahia, Arthur Rubinstein, Vladimir Horowitz, Jon Kimura Parker, Daniel Barenboim, Claudio Arrau, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Ivan Moravec, Andre Watts, Angela Hewitt, Alfred Brendel, Krystian Zimmerman, and many, many more.

    on December 28, 2012 19:33

    @mellow cello: This is a piano transcription of a choral piece, the Birthday Cantata. The piece has a lot of verticality so a transcription for cello would have a different sound. Good luck in your quest.
