    Wow! I can see why he won! That is some of the most beautifully expressive playing I’ve seen in quite some time…and what a beautiful piece! Thanks for posting this video, Chris; I’ll call it my “Wednesday Motivation.” 😉

    For those who liked this piece, be sure to check out his piece “Whispered by the Wind”… Seriously the beat piece of music I’ve heard all year.
