about

I play all the instruments in this performance of Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23.

Since I'm a pianist, I chose to use a sampling keyboard using digital samples of real orchestral instruments to create this recording. All the sounds are meant to imitate the original instrument. It was a wonderful opportunity to experience and explore the orchestral score and "play" these instruments. The results are surprisingly realistic.

It took me two months to record the individual parts, one line at at time. It was one of the most difficult musical challenges of my life and the most fun I've ever had at the keyboard.
