Can't argue with that, Chris! It surprises me that Valentin would go to the trouble of submitting his marvelous recordings, but then not talk to us. Valentin, are you out there?

I'm sure he is out there somewhere.....

Hello Valentin,

Re: g minor Prelude - What a beautiful performace. The tone is gorgeous. The technque is there to communicate the music and it is truly great. The way the music built up and the perfect tidiness of the dynamics wedded to the directionality of the music is impressive. Bravissimo to your beautiful performance. Phenomenal sensitivity!

Re G Major- Prelude Just beautiful! Phenomenal musicianship.

Kaila Rochelle

I do not have much inclination to the music from Rachmaninov. However I was sensitive to the mood from both theses pieces, which I already heard of course but did not care much about. I appreciated them better without the background noise, which I removed by means of digital processing. Processed files here attached.


Nice work with the noise reduction! Generally I don't like noise reduced files. It inevitably changes the overtones of the piano sound, and the result, while prettier, usually has less character. But this is discreetly done and works quite well.

In either case, I very much enjoyed these recordings.

Wonderful ,almost magical, artistry displayed in both pieces. I love the way he shapes the accompaniment in a way
to set up the melody then proceeds like telling a story.This is done by sensitive phrasing done in a very tasteful manner,drawing the listener in.Definitely playing of a high order,bravo!
