I could do better if I did multiple takes and picked the best, certainly. However, I was pleased with this recording overall, and in the spirit of a recital, it is realistic of how I would play.

Finally submitted Chopin Prelude 28 No. 4 in E minor.. much more difficult than it appears.... but I'm somewhat satisfied with the submitted even though it could be better.


Cheers!!!

Great! Looking forward to your rendition of The Sick Doll.

Spent all weekend recording.. but there's always something wrong, either one passage or more gets completely screwed up, or the dog starts barking, or the Amazon deliveryman rings the doorbell, or my mind wanders and I lose my place.. I hate to submit a subpar recording and will try again tonight. But if again I am unsuccessful, I'm afraid my submission will feature accompaniments by my dog or the Amazon deliveryman.

Due to my hectic schedule, played a condensed version of a piece I worked on for a while. Worked on it on my keyboard for a few weeks and did a recording off an acoustic upright at a community center.

Good luck to everybody...

Curious to know if anyone who has played this found it difficult? It seemed hard to me to make it flow well, and the pedal had to used very appropriately.
My score didn't have any pedal markings .. but I found this a difficult piece.


Cheers!!!

Oh yes, very difficult! I just tried playing through it last night, after spending some time with it a year ago (nothing if not ambitious... but it is just so beautiful!). The notes themselves mostly seem reachable, but getting the "heartbeat" right, the subtle dynamics, the flow as you say.... these are challenges for a lifetime of practice! Well, my lifetime anyway, whatever remains of it!

Looking forward to hearing yours!

It's like trying to sing My Way - the notes aren't that hard, but getting the feels right is tough.

Mines in. Good thing too since now I can finally trim my fingernails. I hate having long nails but I've also noticed that when my nails are about 1/8 '' shorter than the tip of my finger, well this is perfect. Any longer and my nails tap the keys (especially pinky) which I hate. I also don't like when the nails are cut too short and you end up pressing the keys with just finger tip meat...(no supporting nail). Don't like that either.

But what I DO like is the fact that my car is working, my submission is in, and my fingernails aren't bugging the crap out of me anymore. Now off to some other projects needing attention: (cleaning gutters, draining pump tanks, stabilizing 2 strokes for winter).

Really true , I was thinking that it sounds too "simple- empty" fast, and too unconnected as a melody when too slow. Ahhhh.... I I got it!!! I need a new piano !!! -- just kidding ... or practice and a teach!

The tuner came, the piano sounds great... but I only got a shaky recording of a contemporary RCM etude that to be honest, doesn't sound too good itself! At least it's so dissonant and loud that I can still record even with the jackhammers from the building site just out of my window in the background. Will try again today, last chance!

Just yell out the window to "be quiet ...I'm practicing here" ha

Years ago the same thing happened to me , I was playing /practicing "Morning Prayer" by Tchaikovsky, with piano and strings as a second layer ...and then I ported it thru my Marantz receiver, and turned it up super loud.
I swear they paused and listened for a while, [like 15 minutes of practice .].
But, too bad I can't do that with a newer computer , ....well I can but it doesn't sound as good as it used to. Fortunately I don't have to. but I do get cargo trains passing So I just wait....until I can hear what I'm doing.


Cheers!!!

lol, I don't think they'd notice...

Anyway, I submitted a recording, I'm so sick of this obsessive piece! Being neck-deep in work didn't help.

Ha ha. OK. I'll tell (I'm too easy). Will give the Reader's Digest version then. <checks to make sure wife is not looking over shoulder>

So I worked on Morning Prayer with my teacher as my submission for last month's Slavic Recital. But I had picked this piece because it was for my wife and the composer was her fellow countryman, Tchaikovsky. So all went well. Recorded. Submitted to the recital. I sent her a Soundcloud link (since she is based out of our flat in Amsterdam, while I am in WashDC and we only see each other a few times a year). Well, she liked it... but... but... but... she was disappointed because I had submitted this for the recital. She said, "Well, it's not really for me then. It's for your recital." (!?!?!?!?!) The long-and-short, I consequently promised her another piece of that composer's, which would not be for a recital at all, but I would learn it and play it just for her! Picked piece. Worked with teacher. Recorded. And... sent to her. Again she liked it. I reminded her that this one was totally for her. Not going to submit it - to anything. So what does she say? "Well, now that you've already given it to me, it would be ok if you submitted it for a recital." What? What? LOL. (I omitted most of the 'thought' emoticons from this brief description.) I suppose this is a bit like "regifting?" Anyways, submitted. LOL.

I get her point, I'd draw her a portrait and buy roses too, with sending the recording again on cd...and maybe a pearl necklace .... but don't tell her that you got the idea from here!!!! ...because then you'll fight again. . but the flip side is- there is distance. A good thing sometimes. ha
