I was surprised by this Bortkiewicz prelude, David. If I heard it blindfolded, I'd say that it might have been taken out from a musical. I listened a couple of times and always I had this image of Fred Astaire dancing to it.
Your playing is fabulous, both in style and expression. You are 'in' the music. Lovely rendition.

Hi Pantelis,

Thanks for listening. So far I've heard three very different descriptions of the "program": your Fred Astaire image, a carousel, and a circus! One thing is for sure though--it's definitely a high-energy piece!

Thanks for the nice compliments on my playing!
