Thanks, David and mcgilroy! Glad you liked it. Thankful to be playing and recording in difficult times.

Good sound, warm and not brittle...the players 'dance' around each other well, as in a've captured their performance well !

Thanks, studer58! With additional distance between the performers these days, it is extra important with musicians who communicate well!

Listened to this a few times now. Really a wonderful performance up there with the likes of Mordkovitch and Opitz (violin & piano there, I know but the musicality reminds of that recording).

I wonder how you managed the balance between the viola and piano? In the parts where the piano volume ceases and it recedes into the background - did you attain this in the mix or via live performance - or both maybe?

Thanks for nice words, campa and mcgilroy!

The balance was pretty good in the main pair, so didn't need to push the viola too much compared to the piano. It helps that I am the pianist, playing my own piano in a room that I know well;-) And of course the viola player is really amazing. She has such a varm, singing tone that really comes through in recording.
