Dear listeners (David and Chris),
In the end you both have made the same points and these have been digested, though still a little needs to be done.
Before I stated recording this piece difinitevely was not
ready: it was the microphone that got it right! You see, I really never learnt this one, but only played it like that. I have other Lyric Pieces the proper way, but these I have not recorded so far.
I have noticed the pedal remains down a bit too much, principally during pauses. This I hope has been corrected. About the melody signing, I should have known better. Shame on me! I have added a touch of rubato here and there and have tried to add dinamics, though I find it hard to do on my upright, which tends only to go from pp to p.
I have made several other recordings, but, seeing the poor quality of the recordings, I would rather not post them here.
I have been looking into recorders: they seem to come in all prices, from 30 to 600. When I succeed in robbing the bank (hoping it is not the one where I have my account
) I'll investigate further.
By the way, I did not mention that in the recording I posted my daughter was halfway between the piano and the microphone. Try as had as you will to hear her you will not: she was silent.
