Summarizing what it is I love most about your playing. You sing. Always. In each track of your CDs and in each act of your life, you always sing.

Thank you for that.

In a previous recording of my Piano Sonata, his surmounting the technical challenges while so congenially identifying with the complexities of its style, is a truly remarkable feat. Juul-Borre is an artist of the highest order.
