  1. Greetings! It was such a treat to hear you play in Vienna. The program ranged from delicate miniatures by Marx to monumental deluges by Petyrek and Strauss/Sorabji, and all was played with a sensitive combination of power and grace.

    Really really interesting programmes! You dont see such an eclectic mixture of repertoire anywhere else. Do you ever come to Italy? Would love to get my hands on that Sorabji Salome.

    Dear mr Powell,
    My wife and I tremendously enjoyed the concert you gave in Den Bosch last November. In a different context, I learned that you are planning to play in the Netherlands once more. Can you already provide some deatils?
    Best regards,
    Christiaan Caspers
