Live recital recording on 07 April 2005:

Prokofiev, Toccata in D minor Op.11
Joshua Hillmann, Piano
Steinway


Well, I noticed you were in need of a recording of this because of recent events... This recording is not as good as Martha's, but see what you think. ;)

I'm relearning this one currently for a competition next month, so comments on technique, interpretation, etc will be much appreciated!


Thanks,
Josh

Perhaps not up to Argerich standards but it is really good. A couple of not so even repeated notes but hey, they are very difficult to maintain all the way through. I do not know this pieces from inside out but cannot believe anything but that you did a very good job here.

The recording is up on the site.

It may be not quite as slick as the Setrak version :P But I actually like it better for that, it has more sense of menace and danger and the few tiny frays rather add to the excitement. This is not a piece that is meant to sound comfortable, I think. Great job.
