Thank you Julian, it is a beautiful piece, isn't it?
It is a love song, a lullaby. That is what I think of when I play it.
It is an emotionally powerful composition to me, and that means I am quite willing to use it as a tool to refine my playing by diving in deep and discovering the things I have not noticed previously and playing phrases over and over to get them to sound the way I want.
That recording is a snapshot in time, and is already out of date. In a month's time, I will make another recording that reflects the work I've been doing.
