Admins and Friends on Pianosociety,

While on the topic of psuedonyms I have a confession to make. I have a dissociative personality disorder. By popular definition you might call me a schizophrenic. By all this I mean my name is not in fact "Jack Pringle" (or Jackpringle123). I made this name up and it is a psuedonym name like Quintus Skrjablin. which I have to admit is a much cooler name :roll: . So Martin is the real name of Quintus and Riley is my real name, Jack is the fake one. I have another account here on pianosociety (pianoman342) and I was going to delete jackpringle123 over the summer but the function looked to be disabled. So, I am not going to post anymore on this account. I have psychological issues I need worked out and I pray that they will be. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Well that is a bit OT ! I never thought your name was Jack Pringle but I never guessed you were pianoman342. For some reason I seem to get along better with the latter :lol: Your postings as Jackpringle123 have often confused me, being sometimes daft, sometimes quite sensible. If you want me to remove this account I can do so.

Interesting. I wonder if you ought to make three separate donations to PS, at this point.

Wow - that is random! So this is the same person who made that video? :? Hmmm...

So Martin, what say you? Can you make new recordings without the squeaky bench and possibly better dynamics/technique?

Not to mention some musical interest ? The technique isn't actually the problem, except maybe the execution of trills and ornaments.

I think I will try later with some other pieces instead. But it will take some while, because I don't have any piano where I am now; I only have short periods for recording when I visit my parents.

The Haydn sonata had no dynamical annotations in the Urtext, I think it might be written for cembalo originally. So I think I've failed with doing the necessary analysis of where to play loud and soft. But I think I will try my luck with some other pieces instead, maybe another Haydn sonata and some Debussy coming up.

Techneut's critique is pretty harsh, and I don't feel it is completely pertinent.

It is indeed, and it is never nice to get such a critique. Pertinent or not, always keep in mind you don't play for yourself only. It's not about how YOU think you are playing, it is about how others perceive it. Getting all the notes right is really only the beginning.
