Nice playing, by turns wistful and impassioned.

What instrument are you playing on? It sounds slightly odd.

Thanks, Andrew! It's a Yamaha P155 Digital Piano. This fall, I'm going to be going to college, so expect high-quality Steinway recordings soon!

Ah, that explains it! It didn't sound like a "proper" grand. WIth that in mind, you do well to get as much colour as you do.

I really look forward to that.  I was afraid you were going to disappear for four years, rather as if you were going into a limited-term monastery.  So no vow of musical silence? ;)

Lovely playing, AJ!
One of my favorite mazurkas, I call it the "jazz" mazurka.

Because this mazurka is so often played, it's really rare to find an interpretation that:
1. Sounds good
2. Has a lot of thought put into it
3. Is unique and interesting
You just did all three. Awesome job  :)
