In this thread:

http://forum.pianoworld.com/ubbthre...anced-classical-pianist.html#Post3073228

I felt if I don't post this, it will be an absolute injustice:



I'm 100% sure Lucyna Padykuła, will play as fantastic as above on both P-515 and MP7SE. I can never reach this level of expressiveness. I'm not saying she's better than Daniel Barenboim, but darn good at what she's doing.

Her performance speaks. I wish artists like her were members of this forum and I (and maybe us) could read their feedbacks on different slabs.

In all seriousness I love this trand of posting impressive recording on DP.
It sets the bar for how far I can milk my current "investment". I was confident before that it was more deficiencies in my technique than the quality of the instrument which made the difference. Now it is painly obvious that my journey just began and that I can realistically progress for 10+ years before ever needing to upgrade the instrument again. My wallet is feeling better for each of these lovely videos.

That is a very rude thing to say, ‘the piano is very good looking’.

I’ve never read a single post commenting on the looks of a VST, but when it comes to pianos all we can comment about is ‘looks’.

“Ah, that NV-10 is so cute”; “look at the rear end on that N3X”; just to mention a few of those nasty comments.

This stops now!

At least nobody commented on the performer's phenotype.

The Kawai is of course Kawaii! =(^_^)=

« Ah, that NV-10 is so cute »

It is a pleonasm : kawaii means cute in Japanese.


Note that a piano in the living room MUST have a Wife Approval Factor. wink

(And I have to admit that I like that my N1X looks better than the first self assembled furniture. I also like that my VST GUI is a minimum careful designed... even if it is not the main factor of choice, but just an old grizzled GUI would make me a bad impression. Afterward, if one ask me about the Reaper Compressor GUI, I would reply you shouldn’t stop at its old grizzled interface : putting a threshold slider just against the input level is a clever choice)

Perhaps now we can put away the silly "looks" argument.

Here is the original song. I assume it's a kind of a love song.



I believe it's her arrangement and arranging a song is a different form of art. It requires another level of talent and creativity.



There are some distinguishing features these classical players have:
- They are familiar with many phrases from famous classical pieces and in her case, she combines them intentionally or unintentionally
- They know they shouldn't saturate the melody of the song, where to emphasize etc
- Chord progression... they know how/when to add chords that are melodically and harmonically appealing/makes sense better (not necessarily follows the original music)

This isn't her arrangement of Yesterday, she plays (with nice rubato and some ornements added) the one from "The Beatles for jazz piano", arranged and harmonised by Steve Hill, Wise Publications NO90504 ISBN 0-7119-3154-2
I have the book grin

Please send her a comment on this video youtube (I don't have an account), because people are thinking it's her arrangement and she doesn't negate confused

Reminds me of a "less good" version of "Yesterday" skipping the proper one-two-three-four timing at one point. (Many points because of repetition) 🙄



It can be quite distracting if ones inner one-two-three-four counter is functioning properly. 😀
