"be not attached to the fruits of your action; your commitment is to action alone."

with that said here's a link to my offerings:

caveat emptor -- i've been playing about 10 years as an adult beginner (plus a year or two as a kid). given the effort to climb these 'mountains' i wanted to have a record of summiting, albeit clumsily. hence, a Zoom Q3 for christmas and away we go.

Great playing! I love it! Wonderful feeling.

Probably my favorite quote from the Bhagavad Gita BTW. Were I a soldier I think I would carry that book into battle.

new addition - Scarlatti Sonata L454 in C major:

Zoom Q3 location certainly more visually interesting, but audio quality takes a hit. Any preferences regarding Q3 location? thanks!

My favourite:

Seeing your infinite form with many mouths, eyes, arms, thighs, feet, stomachs, and many fearful teeth; the worlds are trembling with fear and so do I, O mighty Lord. (11.23)

As moths rush with great speed into the blazing flame for destruction, similarly all these people are rapidly rushing into Your mouths for destruction. (11.29)

You are licking up all the worlds with Your flaming mouths, swallowing them from all sides. Your powerful radiance is burning the entire universe, and filling it with splendor, O Krishna

Kp. 380, Longo 23. This sonata is (or should be) delightfully light yet it's deceptively difficult -- I can see why it's required in so many piano performance juries! Plenty of rough edges to work on, but for now my humble offering:

BTW, don't be shy about offering your constructive criticisms -- I'm a big boy and my identity isn't too closely tied to the piano! wink

Very nice! My only quibble is that sometimes you are using too much damper pedal and blurring the delicate figurations, particularly at the beginning. Love this sonata, BTW. Have you heard Horowitz play it?

thank you horowitzian. yes too much damper pedal but it's insurance against my poor technique shocked . and yes, i've listened to horowitz's moscow '86 performance umpteen times -- simply gorgeous. another wonderful interpretation is alexander ghindin's (on youtube). cheers.

No problem! smile

The Scarlatti he played in Moscow was wonderful. thumb However, nothing beats these breathtakingly beautiful sonatas he played at the '68 TV concert.

Horowitz is how I discovered this piece, and it was my first introduction to Scarlatti. Before that, "Scarlatti" was barely a name to me and I had no idea who or what he was.

Entheo: I don't think there's too much pedal (at all, really). I think this is TERRIFIC -- truly superb, no exaggeration.
Let me put it this way: I play the piece, and this is better than what I do, so I certainly hope it's real good. ha

FYI: "Too much pedal" to me means blurring the notes, of which there was a little in Entheo's recording. Horowitz, IIRC, drew the ire of purists for even daring to touch the pedal while playing Scarlatti. I don't think anyone can argue with the end result. smile

I sure wouldn't, but would you believe......On another site, there's a very knowledgeable (but somewhat provocative) music buff who said (and I quote): "Horowitz sucks at Scarlatti." Fortunately I've never come across any view like that before, and I hope I never will again. ha

I didn't know that Horowitz or anyone ever was particularly criticized for using pedal in Scarlatti, but to the extent that there's a (fairly small) school of thought that you should "never" use pedal for music of that period, I wouldn't be surprised if there have been some such voices.

BTW......for all the bigger great stuff that Horowitz is more well known for, IMO his Scarlatti is maybe the very most remarkable of anything he played. IMO the only challengers would be Stars & Stripes Forever and a particular Chopin mazurka. Although little else he did would be very far behind.

I think the performance of L.123 could use some more dynamic contrast and shaping of the phrases(talking about the OP and not Horowitz here). I thought that the melody in the part where the RH plays the F#C# motive was too soft... especilly the top note.

Besides Horowitz I like Pletnev, Pogorelich, Gilels, and Maria Tipo for Scarlatti. Too bad Scarlatti is a relative rarity in recitals. I've only heard it played in a few. Perhaps the most memorable was by Maria Tipo who played the 4 Chopin Ballades followed by 12 Scarlatti Sonatas at the Met Museum of Art a long time ago.

Boy, you people are tough! ha

But I'm wondering if maybe y'all don't much disagree on how basically wonderful it is, and are just offering things to make it even better or more to your taste.

Am I alone in thinking this is top-notch?
(And even if I am, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.) smile

It's a tremendous performance. And I'm usually not easy to please on Scarlatti.

BTW.....in my experience, Scarlatti isn't rare on recital programs. To some extent it's probably because the performers that I'm interested in would tend to be people who like Scarlatti. But that's not the whole thing, because a lot of what I attend isn't concerts by performers that I particularly choose.
