First of all, I am thrilled to be introduced to this excellent website — by Stephen, by the way. What a wonderful way to deepen one’s knowledge of classical music. And when I hear Stephen play Chopin, I melt. His soul exudes from his fingertips, as does the soul,(I think) of the composer. Please continue with your fulfilling work. Thank you.
