A couple of days ago, she made available live recordings of a performance at the Goethe Institut in Boston on December 5th, 2008. The archive includes Henze's La mano sinistra, Lachenmann's Ein Kinderspiel, and Stockhausen's Klavierstück IX. I just dropped her an e-mail to get the download password. To get the files, rendez-vous on Seda's Download page.
