 Exuberant and Deep September 18, 2019 By Mark S. (Fort Mill, SC) See All My Reviews "My review will be bias. I am a fan of Mr. Bailey. I've seen him perform twice, playing Prokofiev's Sinfonia Concertante and Tales from Hemmingway. He plays like a velvet brick. His tone is deep and rich. Dare I say masculine? It is not prissy, yet heart-felt, gentle and tender. And exact! I loved Bloch's Prayer -- my first exposure to that work. The big works are performed in a very idiomatic manner; no interpretative license." Report Abuse
