Performer's note:

Ed:My intent here was to convey energy and enthusiasm!


Nico: My intent here was to convey energy and enthusiasm!


Judy:I heard this piece, fell in live with it, and set about learning it. It took about one year, and now I can play it from beginning to end. It makes me happy to play it!


Utako: Fantasie-Impromptu is a quite popular piece bu is not played much at a competition because it's overplayed because of its beauty.

Utako: Etude Op. 25 No.11 - I started studying this piece in late March because I wanted to learn a difficult piece during the Pandemic. But soon, I gave up because of no progress, but I picked it up again a couple of weeks ago to retry. I'm around 15% of learning stage and probably I can go up to 50% if I work hard...

From The New York Times: Beethoven’s ‘Für Elise’ Doesn’t Deserve Your Eye Rolls It is overplayed all over pop culture. But the pianist Igor Levit says it is “one of the most beautiful pieces I know.”

Beautiful Recital

I am so happy that these performances are being posted so that if we are unable to listen at the "live" broadcast, we can still be a part of. I enjoyed tremendously the very high caliber of playing.
