Whoa... what a great intrepretation and Romantic Largo. The little cascade scale down from the held high D is wonderfully expressed -- there is passion in your music. Wow, do I like it, and I thought I had heard enough versions of this one that another one would not create such a nice effect. These little jewels can sometimes be surprising.

I'm with hav. This is a beautiful rendition, slower than any I have heard before, but with tremendous feeling. Bravo.

Hav, Charles, Owl & Andrew;

Thank you so much for your comments.
I have a habit of playing most things too slow but I believe that it is appropriate with Lagrima.

Cheers all

Very sensitively played. Thank you very much indeed for the chance to hear this, you have set a standard for me to aim at. I think I may have been playing it too fast to bring out some of the atmosphere.

Very lovely and sensitive interpretation!!
I like to play this wonderful piece slowly myself . But your's is even slower - but convincing!
You are proving that there is always a new way to interprete a piece with substance. Thank you! :D

Adagio has really hit the target. You think you know a piece, you are guided by the score, you think you've done more or less all you can with it and then...you hear someone else interpret it another way. You hear something you'd like to try and the result is something new, a combination of what you used to play and what you have just heard. The learning and discovery never stop and that's what makes the OWMP part of the forum so very valuable. One day I hope I will have the courage to add to the collection.

Simply great ! I've since changed parts of my own interpretation after listening :) Good job.

Simply beautiful - many thanks .... so, that's how it should be played !

Hi Richard,
That's really cleanly and nicely played. What are you thinking about when you play it? I must admit that it is slower than I've heard it before, but as you say, it is appropriate for the piece. I'm listening to it for the second time now, and I feel the tempo is a bit too plastic in some places, but I see I'm in the minority here!

Have you tried playing it a bit faster to give it a different feel. It can sometimes be really fun to play around like that, getting lots of different ideas.

Anyway, well done for an inspirational rendition.

I love listening to Lagrima and this interpretation was also very lovely to hear. Very relaxing at this speed, and very well played Richard.
