Always somewhere about the glo...
I didn't really want to present this yet, but I somewhat boxed myself into a corner with comments on another thread.

This is a very difficult movement to record error free. The score is so complex it needs to be virtually committed to memory before it is performed. Those who listen to my performaces are already aware of the substandard recording conditions/quality. The performance has no glaring problems but could be tightened in places. It is somewhere in the mid-range on speed (i.e. 15-20 minutes). As much thought has gone into presenting the music of Beethoven as the devilish detail of the score. I hope all listeners will find something they can draw from it. Another presentation with all other movements will come at a later date.

This sure doesn't sound like light, fluffy eggs to me, though it does sound like a bit of a yolk.

I think all pieces should be virtually committed to memory before being performed, regardless of complexity.

To be clear, your version sounds nothing like Tchaikovsky, but it should be Tchaikovsky-esque if it is played correctly!

Your version sounds like buttery waffles!

I thought sounded more like a ragoƻt d'opossum, as I imagined listening to it.
