Nope. The links from Keith Kerman. The one just before my "Gorgeous" post. Maybe the pages are numbered differently in various browsers.

Sorry, can't find it. Maybe I'm slow today.

Perhaps you could give us a link to the post?

Just before I stopped by the shop, they had received another D-232 that was even better than the one Keith wrote about. At least, in my opinion, it was a bit better.


FWIW, these 2 videos are of the Steingraeber 232 that ClsscLib liked so much. The instrument in these videos has sold and is no longer available.
The dynamic range in the Scriabin on this recording is quite large, so if you turn it up too much while it is soft ( it starts quite softly) , it might get too loud for you when the music gets to its more powerful moments. For those of you not familiar with this particular piece by Scriabin, you are in for a treat. Such a great piece of music.

Yes, Keith, that Scriabin certainly was a treat. And on such a beautiful instrument.

Took my breath away.

Sorry, Marty. What you were seeing on page 4 I was seeing on page 13. I was looking in the wrong part of the thread. I don't know how the displays are so different... but thanks for indulging me.

You can set the number of posts per page in your settings. Default is 30 posts per page; and then you have the videos on page 4.


Everything is possible, and nothing is sure.

Glad you liked it. Do you think you would have ever had a clue that the Scriabin is for one hand if you weren't watching the player? Such ingenious piano writing.

Would not have had a clue. What a fantastic interpretation he does.

Ax found the piece on imslp and it looks like something I might try (with two hands though). I wonder what the purpose of it being written/played with just LH when written with a grand staff? There are so many high treble notes! (I'll leave out why that might make it hard for some females to play with just LH!)

It's haunting me, but my 'season' is here and it is hard to find time to practice something new right now, but I am always on the lookout for 'the next piece'! With such a rich bass, it should sound nice on a MH.

Since Scriabin died in 1915, his Op. 9 (which consists of two works for the left hand) couldn't have been one of those written for Paul Wittgenstein (Austrian pianist who lost his right arm in WW1). But I wonder if these Scriabin pieces were part of Wittgenstein's repertoire.
