So good. And he's not the least bit distracted or intimidated by all those microphones surrounding him.

Denian,
Thanks for sharing this. This is very good stuff indeed.

I was not familiar with this player. I looked up his bio - studied with Barrueco at Peabody and Benjamin Verdery at Yale. Explains his remarkably relaxed playing style. He makes it look so easy.

BTW, the ornamentation in the courante is simply amazing.

I've only had time to listen to the Prelude but I love the beautiful limpid playing in the Prelude.

Very nice indeed. He make it look so easy, but then again I appreciate just how many years of hard work and dedicated practice have gone in to allow him to play that way. Thanks for sharing.

Nice one!

Sorry, I meant "limpid" but couldn't think of the correct spelling.

I knew what you meant John, probably because the same feeling of transparency came into my mind while I listened. A really masterful performance by an incredible musician. I couldn't help notice (and envy) his amazingly long slender fingers.

So well done, everything else seems to disappear and all that's left is the music.

Amazing playing, and the mic positioning really does justice to his flawless interpretation.
