News September 2020

All the Chopin and Chopin-Godowsky opus 25 studies, along with commentaries, are now published on youtube. I included two encores - Schubert-Godowsky Morgengruss and Strauss-Tausig Man Lebt Nur Einmal. A DVD should be available within the next month or two. Now I am having a break from practice and devoting time to house renovations.

I am appalled at what is happening in the world. It is a great pity more people are not willing to look beyond the official propaganda in the main media. I find it very distressing that most wish to remain ignorant, meekly following orders that take away their freedom. Frightening children about nothing is the worst aspect.
