Hello Raymond,

Your Scarlatti is sweet without being sentimental, very expressive within the bounds of limited use of dynamics,
has a perfect use of non legato without sounding detached.

Thank you for a beautiful and touching performance.

Kaila Rochelle

Hello Raymond,

I think this is the first time I've had the pleasure of hearing you play here at PS and enjoyed your Scarlatti rendition. You follow the Baroque traditions while at the same time allowing your performance to be expressive on the modern piano. The piece has much charm and I enjoyed listening.

David

I agree with everyone else. This is a most enjoyable performance of the Scarlatti sonata. It is expressive as it should be and with the appropriate dynamics and articulation. Continue the good job!

Just a question, why do you refer to the Longo number on the video and to the Kirkpatric one on the audio?

Hi Raymond,
I have enjoyed your Scarlatti-recording thoroughly. There is a fine expression, light touch and nice sound of your piano. So thank you for sharing it with us! I also like the artwork in your video.
