Welcome to PS. It's great that you came back to piano playing after quite a long absence, and that PS is an inspiration to you.
But if you have looked around here for a while, you'll know that the standards are high and criticism can be fierce. So I hope you can take whatever will be thrown at you
You play for your own enjoyment, and I can well hear that. Your commitment and musicality are not in doubt, but I fear there are too many things wrong here for others to enjoy your playing it as much as you do. In a recording, you can not have a long pause with a noisy page turn, sudden hesitations, and fumbled passages. Page turns and slips are quite unavoidable for the amateur, but you'll need to do something
about them because nobody wants to hear these things ! Cut them out in your editor, but of course that must be dome smoothly and inaudibly (there is one particularly bad cut about halfway in one of the Debussy pieces, the Reflets I think it was).
I'd say your biggest problem is one of rhythm. In particular, observing correct note values. The Bergamasque Prelude is really bad in that respect. It sounded almost random in places. I would recommend that you go over that piece with the metronome and score at hand, making sure all notes and rests are exactly as they should be, all in strict tempo. Forget expression and rubato, treat it as an etude. It is my belief that you should not allow yourself rubato and freedom until you can play strictly in time. Probably this will not feel like fun at first. But the rewards are great, and you might actually start enjoying practising like this, and feel how things slot into place. Do you play Bach ? If not, start now
Once you have the discipline, freedom will follow. The other way around is more difficult.
Some things to watch out for, except those already mentioned :
- Pedal usage. Debussy can have a wash of pedal, it should never be dry, but it should not become a blur. Listen back to yourself and note where you should have changed the pedal.
- Listen for notes that you play but that do not sound (because being played too soft). There are quite a while. It is a difficult thing to get rid of but you must play clearly and firmly at all times.
- Do not want to record things above your level. The Debussy Images are difficult pieces, and though you cope reasonably well in places,
you're not quite ready for it. At least not to record it.
- If you make a mistake while recording, or need to turn the page, start again a bar earlier or so, at a convenient place, and cut out the wrong/noisy bit afterwards in your editor.
- Consider tuning some of the high notes of your piano. Some are not very nice to listen to.
- Listen back to your own recordings very critically, and do not make excuses for the things that go wrong. If it's too difficult, you just need to practice more - or pick easier pieces.
I think that's it from me for now. Others may want to add. I hope it helps some !
