Hi Owl,

Beautiful playing! You shaped these interpretively very difficult melismatic lines of this improvisatory introductory Adagio very elegantly and logically, there's a lovely meditative and Zen-like feel which I haven't heard in other performances of this piece on violin or guitar. Your tone is very clear and lucid with just enough warmth as well. The dynamics are well thought out too, you achieve a climactic point about 2/3rds of the way through and it is very effective.

Thank you so much for sharing your superb playing! :D :bravo:

Kind regards,

Aryeh

Beautiful playing Owl.

Rich vibrant tone. Strength and delicacy tastefully balanced in the articulation and phrasing.

Your signature says it all Owl. "I leave my songprint on your heart.". I don't think I could add to that.

Thank you for your songprints Owl

My dear friend Owl,

Thank you. What a sublime gift you have shared with us. I don't have the right words, only the emotion of being absolutely absorbed into your performance -- spellbound.

WOW!
My dear Owl,
Absolute perfection has never been expressed more magnificently.
The purity of tone, the delicacy of the notes, and the gentle passionate phrases that you have used in this piece, bring so much life into it.
The only way that this performance could be made more perfect, would be to be able to sit at your feet to watch you play it.

:casque: Listening to you play tonight has really made a difficult day turn out great. You just made my day.
:merci:
Thank you for giving us another opportunity to enjoy your music.
