Daughter has given her first recital at St. Olave's on 8th May. I've included the time stamp to each piece in the description in youtube. Please watch, comment and criticise if you get a chance.

She still has no account here, but will read posts, understand and correct any mistakes moving forward.

Thank you all for your time

You have a very gifted daughter, congratulations smile

Listening to her Beethoven right now.... The second movement sounds a bit rude sometimes, I'm not sure about certain "outbursts".... And in the third movement she should think more about the fact that it is very often in the p and pp area, these passages must "whisper" in a very transparent and "uneartly" way, just interrupted by a few violent accents. But the main thing is that she loves what she does, and when she learns to utter her emotions in a more controlled way, her performances will be even more convincing....

I'll soon be back for more comments....

Thank you Arizona Sage & Tony007.

Sounds positive! I hope she and her playing will mature as the times moves on. She is a very late starter comparing to her peers and only been learning for less than 5 years. Please do comment / criticise more, if you get a chance.

Hi suniil,

today I've been listening to your daughter's performance of Rachmaninov and Chopin (op. 10/12). First of all: having got that far after only 5 years of playing is more than remarkable! About Rachmaninov: the middle section is lovely, she has a beautiful and touching sound and cares a lot about voicing. In the main part there is a certain lack of grandezza. It's not necessary to hurry, the music should sound proud and alla marcia. About Chopin: At the beginning the right hand is a bit "driven" by an "impatient" left hand, but at the end there is a great atmosphere where the music retires more and more to a "murmuring" piano before the final "explosion" -- I loved and admired how she did that passage!

Thanks for posting this. The program is very well put together. I listened to all of the Liszt etude and the two Chopin Etudes, and at least some out of each of the other works. I heard some special things that stood out in the Liszt Un Sospiro and feel that is definitely a work to keep in her active repertoire along with the Chopin Op. 10 No. 12. Her playing suits those two etudes very well - the Liszt Concert Etude No. 3 ("Un Sospiro") and the Chopin Op. 10 No. 12 - and maybe there is some reason for this connected with the mutual arpeggio emphasis.

There is something to work on with long, connected expanses of melodic line when motion involving the other voices is much less than in those etudes - for instance in the first movement of the Beethoven sonata and also the Arvo Part Fur Alina. This is something a teacher would have to explore in person. Has your daughter worked on any of the Scriabin Op. 11 preludes?

I think maybe close to one year ago a recording of your daughter was posted with the Chopin etude on the black keys. I can still remember the recording. Your daughter both appears and sounds much more at ease here in this church setting. Maybe she was nervous during the recording of the black key etude which might have explained some of the moving around during the piece.

I very much enjoyed listening. Your daughter is superbly talented and I am looking forward to the next video of her playing.

Thank you Michael & Tony for the kind words and encouraging comment. I've passed this on to daughter and teacher as well. We are so glad to have a teacher who is so open minded and welcome comments / criticism in positive way. Teacher even read Tony's comments even before I got a chance to mention!!

She says, only nerves kick in when teacher is present or while in recording a clip for teacher.

Not learnt any Scriabin, but currently learning Chopin Ballade No. 1, Prokofiev Toccata some more Etudes from Opus 10.

Below a short clip from St. Martin in the Fields.
