That's some killer stuff. Playing this medley is obviously physically demanding, given the tempos and the unrelenting lines, and your tone and rhythms are strong throughout--brilliant, in fact, given the intricacy of some of those rhythms. I love the way you work different intervals and chords in--there's a lot of color in these pieces. The octave harp sounds especially big and cool. I like the key changes too.
Overall a very satisfying solo performance, undoubtedly a crowd pleaser, and for good reason.
