I can little comment on Stuart Long and his latest concert. I set up a recording, heard a first piece by Prokofiev, then had to leave. That Prokofiev was a pleasure. Short, but sweet; recounting, in four short movements, a grandmother in front of a fire in a bitter Russian winter telling fairy tales to her grandchildren. So this was quite delicate. It was Old grandmother's tales op.31. He then played Scriabin 24 Preludes, but I was gone. Wish I could have stayed. That Prokofiev was a lovely entree but the main course went missing.

Stuart Long (piano) played Prokofiev and Scriabin at Wesley.
