Jocelyn Freeman Plays Schumann Lieder Transcriptions

Liszt's transcriptions of Robert Schumann's Widmung and Frühlingsnacht are played here by pianist Jocelyn Freeman, originally from Wales, but who now lives in London. Although the camera work in these videos only features a handful of angles, the over-the-shoulder shots give a good account of Jocelyn's playing style. It seems I'm always exhausting my vocabulary trying to discuss every angle of how to play with a beautiful legato, so it's very useful to refer students to a video to see what a fine legato looks like.
