    This was extraordinarily beautiful. Clearly indicative of a well-trained pianist from the old school. I’d like to know you she studied with.

    It was also eerily reminiscent of the experience I had of my first piano teacher – Fay Racca, (1890-1967) and student of Rafael Joseffy (who studied with Liszt – when she played Chopin’s Nocturne in F Sharp, Op. 15 #2 late in life: simple, graceful, understated elegance.
