Although it is so nice of you to offer a discount, but no need to discount such a lovely cd, Matthew. I received my copy this week. My whole family is listening and enjoying. Happy New Year to you and Aisling and all of your family.

Matthew, nearly a month with it and it only gets better and more satisfying to listen. The interpretations are so wonderful. Already having mentioned the "Arabesque" I will also say that I'm thoroughly enjoying the Cooperain pieces and mostly especially the Dyens pieces.

I've listened to every interpretation I have for Flying Wigs and Songe Capricorn and I find yours the most compelling. The nuance of the tempo, pacing, dynamics and color tone are just exquisite. You seem to have approached each piece with patience till you had it right where you wanted it. A lesson for me to learn. Be patient with the process and not be in the rush for a less than ideal result.

Again, my thanks!
