    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    What A shame I won't be in NY.

    I guess I have to settle for your Youtube Tchaikovsky recital.

    Quite enjoyable. Congratulations. Just curious, what piano was used? I wasn't familiar with Bortkiewicz. Thanks for sharing.

    Glad you enjoyed the piece; it was on a rather nice Steinway D (circa 1970's from my estimation).

    That's really awesome, Koji. I'd never listened to Bortkiewicz before and I really enjoyed it. Keep posting your concert dates because one of these days I'd love to see you perform.

    You took the word "clarity" from the first paragraph of his bio...

    Because in 15 years of going to concerts and reading bios, I've never seen the word "clarity" used for anyone BUT Koji Attwood.

    I've seen it used dozens of times.

    Just for fun, I Googled "brahms clarity"

    You'll see it's common, at least in the US

    I've seen it used as something modifying a noun, like, he played the ostinato passage with a great deal of clarity... or, his stacatto in the cadenza demonstrated great clarity... but clarity on its own sounds weird.

    Koji, this summer the new Four Seasons Center in Toronto is doing a series of concerts with artists who are starting out, to draw attention to the new world class facility. You should have your management look into it, because I know it's going to be very successful.

    By the way, are you planning on doing any competitions? I think Montreal is comming up this year, and QEII is also piano this time around I think.

    Thank you very much! I enjoyed it immensely. The way you've nuanced that piece and a passion., it is just great.

    On a side note. There was no doubt in my mind which fortepiano you were playing on and I hated it's tin-like sound full of metal, glass and distortion.

    You are great, just great!!!
