Magnificent, deserves to become a really big hit. And a lovely looking house!

Superlatives only: finest playing and sound quality, Denian. You make a difficult piece sound so easy and natural: the hallmark of a great guitarist/artist. Is that a microphone on the floor? :bravo: :merci: :bye:

Thanks so much for listening Stephen and Erik, much appreciated. The object on the floor is a foot-switch for the light on my left :-)

It is my favorite piece by Mertz. I would like to think that some day I would have the chops to play it, but I don't think I'll live that long. :-|

Nicely played , Denian!
