Here are some old camcorder recordings of 3 pieces I ended up redoing as MP3s and one short MMO take. Sound and performance quality varies - I think the Beethoven came out best. Robert, post em if you want (or not - I won't feel offended).

Beethoven - Op.13, Piano Sonata Pathetique, III. Rondo
Mendelssohn - Op.14, Rondo Capriccio
Mendelssohn - Op.49, Piano Trio no.1, III. Scherzo
Mozart - K.310, Piano Sonata, III. Presto

You did a really fine job on every one of them. Who was that coming in talking to you in the Mendelssohn Rondo Capriccioso? I cannot handle playing and talking at the same or I always make a mess of the playing or say something really weird ;). And that piece is also really difficult while wonderful if someone plays it well as you do.

They are all up on the site.

I watched the first three videos. Glad they are mp3's because I can't seem to play mp4's.
Anyway, these are really good, especially the Rondo. Wow, that looks hard. I also like the Scherzo with the Music Minus One. Have you ever played with a live orchestra? I bet you would be very good.

Listened to the Beethoven Pathetique last movement and the Mendelsohn Rondo so far.

It sounds veeeeeeery good to me, and also your fingers look calm and relaxed. It was a pleasure to listen and to watch!

I've listened to the Beethoven and Mendelssohn. Both are very well played. My only possible suggestion would be to take a little more time with the phrasing. At a few spots I'd like a bit more exaggeration at the ends of phrases. But you did a MAH-ve-lous job!

Thanks for the feedback.

The voice at the end of the Mendelssohn - sorry bout that - was my son, who is also the owner of the Edirol used to make my MP3 recordings. So if he butts in now and then I don't mind (and if I did mind he might repossess the Edirol for his Electric guitar).

To answer Pianolady - I haven't ever played the piano publicly much less with an orchestra and I would find it terrifying to walk out in front of people and sit down at a piano with only one chance to get it right. If there's a place where audiences permit performers to take unlimited do-overs then maybe I'll give it a try. Then it would be like making recordings. (I take a lot of mulligans).
