And boy, was I self conscious or what!!! Very difficult. Needless to say this recording is not perfect, but I thought I'd share my first attempt. Was playing from memory and had a few lapses towards the end.

Brahms, Op.116,#4

This is my piano at home, A Yamaha 5'3" G1R, about 14 years old.

Thanks Brendan and Horace.

Yes, Brendan, this piece has been creeping up little by little to a bit faster tempo, I'll have to pull it back a bit.

Some can tell you to go to heck in such a manner that you would think you might actually enjoy the trip, but that is far more polite than civil - JBryan

Ok. Here's my third recording (I didn't like the 2nd one too much.). There are things I'd like to correct, but since there's no time left, I think this is the one which will go on the Cd.

Brahms Intermezzo, Op.116, #4
