It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
That was fun thanks! If you may allow for a criticism, the recording quality is pretty weird, don't know why, kind of low quality, like recorded with a phone and the fingernail noises prevail too much.
Very interesting, clever, and well played!! I too have one suggestion. About 3/4 of the time one piece leads in perfectly to the next one, but occasionally the sequencing is more abrupt. Perhaps you can adjust that slightly to make things more of a perfect quodlibet.
Really good suggestion and in hindsight I wish I'd worked more on the transitions between pieces to make it more like a continuous composition. I think I was just getting a bit sick of the project by that point tbh and wanted it out of my life!
"Music, rich, full of feeling, not soulless, is like a crystal on which the sun falls and brings forth from it a whole rainbow" - F. Chopin "I never dreamt with my own two hands I could touch the sky" - Sappho
I've always liked C major - even Arnie Schoenberg loves it too (think the conclusion of his greatest work, Gurrelieder - non-stop C major chord for ages). Who wants black notes anyway? For instance, Stravinsky wrote some piano music that uses only white keys...........
"I don't play accurately - anyone can play accurately - but I play with wonderful expression. As far as the piano is concerned, sentiment is my forte. I keep science for Life."
It is indeed me speaking! I've found recording voice overs quite tricky; my voice tends to go completely monotone once the red light's on, as if I'm bored. If I gesticulate a bit it tends to help and I think in my subsequent videos (eg. 5 pieces to play instead of fur elise, or the Chopin or Scriabin analysis) I sound a bit more lively
Thank you I thought the Bach prelude would make the perfect opening, so sadly that meant I had to scrap older works (by Handel for example) because I was going chronologically. Making the compilation was good fun so I'd definitely consider doing another...
