In honor of International Piano Day (and the onset of spring-like weather). An older recording of me playing Schumann's lovely character piece.

Truly beautiful playing Mark. Can you tell us about the piano used and the recording method? I'm curious.

Thanks to all for the kind comments. I tried to play it languidly, almost as if it hurt slightly to press the keys, and with the slightest agitation in the 8 bar phrase starting at measure 19. I was happy with it except for the blurred D6 at measure 49!

The recording is on my restored 1910 Steinway B with a pair of Behrenger B1 large diaphragm condensers and a Digidesign Mbox usb interface. One mic over the bass strings towards the tail and the other over the 1st capo section in the treble, more or less perpendicular to each other. Both mics about 14" above the string plane.
