Thanks!  It was interesting to listen to him break down some of Alkan's most well-known pieces.

For those interested to browse & listen to more of Alkan's music in a single place, I would like to mention a project I am associated with - openclassical.com - where all of Alkan's known music has been cataloged and is easy to listen to via YouTube integration.  The project is fairly new, but Alkan was one of the first composers to be selected (as a test subject of sorts).

https://www.openclassical.com/composer/Charles_Valentin_Alkan

All works of Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Chopin and Medtner have also been cataloged.
