Not a pianist ! Hehe.... Of course you are, and a good one too.

This is a powerful and sonorous performance, doing full justice to Liszt's dark and bleak late-life invention. Nice touch and dynamics, a great instrument, and a good recording.

Some things I noticed:

1) A loud ringing RH note at 0:47 which isn't in the score (at least not in mine).

2) A trill at 1:40 and a tremolo at 1:46, also not in the (my) score. That chopped off staccato chord just before the argeggio sounds rather ugly.

3) You must observe better the note values in the middle and final section. It seems you are counting twice too fast in some bars, playing half notes with quarter values. I do not think this is rubato - if it is, it's gone too far.

But these are minor niggles. It is still very good. Well done !

Yea, I agree with Chris, a good performance. You are a pianist. Say this out loud, "I---AM---A---PIANIST!" :D

Your fellow artist,

Solid playing. You are a pianist. I am not familiar with this piece, so I cannot give too much commentary. But I would love to hear those tremolos to be a lot faster. Whenever I think of a tremolo I think of a table saw biting into a chunk of lumber and tearing its way through it. :twisted:
