Yeh’s performance of Frescobaldi’s toccata and Brahms’ first piano sonata that
“These were highly intelligent readings of not the most explored repertoire, full
of clarity and polyphonic interest as if the pianist was a conductor commanding
all his ten fingers to do his will…There was good contrast between Brahms’
grand orchestral piano sound and his melancholy introspec<on, into which he
was to re<re much later in his composing career. Mul< faceted played of great

  1. Well performed!

    Good soft sound in Liszt. Despite this I’d prefer more orchestral and steady sounding. Especially when it’s a solo melody.

    In Bach sometimes it’s too much pedal. Also occasionally the pulse is a bit inaccurate. Despite a rhythm is absolutely ok.

    Etude is well performed! Maybe you should add a little bit more brilliance considering that the Allan was one of the most virtuoso pianists of his time. But it sounds very colourfully and I really like it!

    Well done!

  2. The interpretation of Liszt lacks personality. I would like more opera, orchestra, passion, and brilliance in your interpretation.
    Sometimes is it’s too much pedal in Bach and sometimes you are nervous.
    Very nice interpretation of Alkan Etude. You play it with the élan and fury. I would like more colors in the middle section.
