Dare I say the best version of this piece I have ever heard?

Very fine player and he also knows how to make good recordings. Check out his duet with Henderson of a Schubert Impromptu. Extremely well done.

Really fine performance!

I'd love to see this piece by Weiss performed on the guitar in C Minor. Someone uploaded a C Minor score here a while back, and I have been meaning to have a crack at it. I think that it would have a richer resonance in C Minor.
