Very nice! It is always nice to get introduced to a composer that I've not heard of. I love your playing on the period instrument. It has such an intimate sound.

Thanks i enjoyed that. Whilst looking for South American composers i found an edition of Pedro Ximenez 100 minuetos. An interesting collection to work through. Have you looked at any other ofhis Minuetos?

Thank you. Yes, I've been playing some of the others - nº 9, 21, 45 (one of my favourites), etc. The collection surely deserves a deeper look.
