Hello,

I'm reposting the files I presented about a week ago.
Here is my Chopin Waltz in E minor recorded on June 30th at a local studio.
This is the first of three new Chopin pieces I'm submitting and I will post videos of the performances very soon.

p.s.
I'm sorry I haven't participated lately but my job has kept me very busy.
Running graduation rehearsals and the main presentation and preparing for summer school classes.
Also preparing for my new acoustic recordings.

I deleted your two other posts and grouped the three Waltzes in this one thread. I did not bother to listen to these recordings, only made sure there was a beginning and an end. They are on the site.

Hi, Kaila!

I listened only to Opp. 64 and 69. both are very convincing.
while the mix of trills and tupplets of 64 is a bit unclear, what caught my ears are the phrasings of Op. 69.

In my score, I have:

While I do listen you playing something like this:

it is more evident from 4'01 on, but there are some other passages where it occurs in a more more subtle way.


sometimes (1'23) you also do not hold the first note of the phrase.

I know that there are several editions of many Chopin compositions, and, according to Angela Lear, most of them are wrong. hehe
It can be that my edition is different than yours.

Luís Felipe

Hi Luís,

Before I recorded the Chopin Op.69 No.2 waltz, I listened to several interpretations and I also read through a few scores.
I observed different phrasings and had questions and uncertainties about the character of the waltz. In a previous interpretation
that I performed using ivory software years ago, there was a different characterization of the piece. You can hear it at my piano page at http://specialneedsinmusic.com/audio/piano/ivory/ivory_chopin/ivory_chopin_op69_no2_altiverb.mp3

My characterization for this interpretationI had more to do with a childhood memory from the age of six. My older sister and I would dance
around to waltzes with me wearing a long skirt and her lifting me up a la Ginger Rogers/Fred Astaire dance routine according to our imaginations.
To be very honest with you, that was the influence on me for this interpretation. I did ponder about the phrasing and this time this was the interpretation
that won out. It was not based solely on scholarship. It was based on mood, impulse and impression.

Thank you for your well thought out comments. They are extremely interesting.

I did not interpret it in a sophisticated, intimate way. Rather, I associated the piece with swirling, impetuous, and refined movements that relate
to both introverted and extroverted expression.

I will post a video link of this performance very soon.

Regards,
-Kaila

Hi Kaila

I listened to all three waltzes. Your playing is artistic and impeccable--and such a delicate touch as needed as well as some beautiful nuances! Absolutely delightful.

David

David,

Thank you so much. I start vacation next week, so I plan to spend some time at the Piano Society
and catch up with listening.

Kaila

What is the meaning of a post like this ? Please post only when you actually have something to say.
I know PS has been dead boring recently, but this isn't going to get any life into it......

Hi Chris,

I'm sorry about the strange post. I added the new message content to my original 'Chopin Three Waltzes' post.
It is a mention about my recently uploaded youtube videos for these pieces. I never find the Piano Society to be boring. :-)
