Tony is indeed a magnificent player, thanks!

Strangely, when I clicked on the link, I heard a program of Bach, Schumann's Symphonic Variations and Messiaen. The Bach and Schumann were exemplary, but I'm no judge of the Messiaen, which I didn't hear.

I will definitely follow this young Canadian. Bravo!

Maestrob, sorry , I confused matters. There is a YT link you clicked on I also posted, but in my first post in this topic is a different link to the Gilmore recital site, an even more impressive recital.
