Some glitch in Computerland started me off with your closing piece, the Capricho. From the first note, you put me in mind of my guitar hero. Tatyana Ryzhkova, the same confidence, technical control, and artistic sensibility.
Then I circled back to the beginning and heard a brilliant interpretation of the Bach.

Congratulations on your submission, Tim.
I loved the phrasing on the Sor.
