Oh, wow... thanks for pointing me to that thread. I'll put my comments in there.

The Rach is back up and working. But please read the notes first!!!

Lazy-man's cliff notes (for people like me):
-Recorded BEFORE I started taking classical lessons (see Rich's thread..I'll clarify there)
-Recorded with Drexel's string ensemble, a small group of about 30 players (no brass section at all)
-Amateur recording
-There was no conductor; the group followed me. (The conductor was the only professional in the group and opted to play cello for the performance.)

I think that's about it. Enjoy...I hope!

Could you re-upload please?

I'm trying HR2, and want to collect recordings. Could you also get me a copy of Rachmaninoff playing HR2?

Thanks,
Dakota

Derulux,

I had never heard this before. What a nice performance. You DID have to wrestle with the ensemble on occasion, didn't you!

Cheers,

David

playadom- I'm sorry... I just tried to find the Hungarian for you, but couldn't. Don't worry, you're not missing much. If I still played it, I'd just re-record it..but I haven't touched the thing in a long time (and that recording was from high school).

Piano*Dad- I thought you were avoiding my music. *laughs* Yeah, there were a couple times I thought it was going to fall apart, but we all managed to hold it together long enough for the audience to applaud. I'm glad you enjoyed it...not quite as clean as your son's playing, but I had fun with it. \:\)

Derulux, I understand.

I'll post a recording of it sometime in September, hopefully.

If I'm going to take time to listen to someones recording I will at least say Hi'
So Here goes,
HI
Although Rachmaninoff (Being English and Old into the bargain I do not care for abbreviations)
was never one of my favourite composers, I greatly appreciated your beautiful playing.
Thankyou for that, and My very best wishes for
your future.
Thankyou again.
Margot.

You did a great job on the Rach, but what on earth was that noise at 9:45-46 someone slam a door during the preformance?

HAHAHA!! That.. is explainable. There was one professional musician in the group--a cellist. He's played everywhere. And with everybody. He was supposed to conduct, but just prior to the first note, decided to play instead. That sound you heard was his case falling (offstage). ;\)
