Jouni, what you say - about the beauty of music growing from the single note, then to the phrase and the sentence - is musical wisdom. This is the way to penetrate inside the notes and to bring out their real meaning. The emotion that comes from the playing in this mp3, is the real emotion of the music itself, not the artificial emotion imposed by the performers vanity.
I agree totally with both you and Hybrid that constant praise is meaningless, but what I say here is what I mean.
Denian, that's the biggest compliment I've ever had. And I mean that. Thanks, it really means a lot!
Thanks to everyone else for the overwhelming comments, too! I'm quite surprised on the feedback for this recording. I wasn't actually very happy with the results myself because I had problems concentrating on the playing well enough. The software crashed once, planes were flying over all the time, then the phone rang, and once I recorded from the wrong input sources, resulting an empty track
