Obviously there is little prospect of recitals atm.. :(

I had no idea it was Liszt's birthday today! What a coincidence.

There is always something that sounds very "pure" especially in your interpretation of Liszt (and contemporaneous) opera transcriptions which is very endearing.

Oh and btw that owl in the background looks kinda scary ;)

Thanks  :)

Haha re the owl. I try to play these pieces without being too mannered about them, I'm not sure if that's what you're alluding to.. I've certainly very much prepared them with an outlook of trying to project the melody as much as possible no matter what other flashy ornamentation is going on. I feel I could maybe have been a touch clearer in a few spots but a small room really isn't the ideal venue for big, in your face, flamboyant concert pieces like this.
