Thanks for those nice compliments! I found this piece to be very difficult and frustrating. I'd been practicing it since November. And although I could play it through flawlessly even at tempo with the metronome, as soon as I'd switch to performance mode far more focused on the musicality as opposed to the mechanics of practicing, problems would pop up. Then today I thought that I should bite the bullet and record, otherwise it probably wouldn't happen. Well, I had two recording sessions. Yesterday I did several takes. When I went to listen to them, there was no sound. Somehow, probably while transporting the recorder to the PC and back to the piano, a finger apparently must have turned the phantom power switch to off leaving the misc without power. All that effort was lost!
Probably Medtner was mocking me. Today, if there was an error, it got intensive therapy, but in the very next recording a problem would pop up which had never done so before! It was so frustrating. Because of the difficulties, there is an occasion small slip in some places. I also have to confess that I inserted a chord that is an addition to the score. I don't remember it happening during recording, but surmise that I must have gotten off track, or hesitated. Evidently my brain rapidly did a musical fix. I listened to it three times and finally examined the score. It was me, not Medtner. I started an edit but then reversed it as I really liked the sound of it there. So that's my very first intentional "emmendation" to a score.
I well know that spot where you wanted to hear more of the LH. The LH is more of a point of interest there, although not melody really, just rising arpeggios. But here's the thing: Medtner wrote fff on top of the treble staff there--quite emphatic--so I observed his direction. What I did do as best I could was to bring up the LH. Until the diminuendo kicks in, that music is like fireworks!
Yes, there a few edits.
I got rid of two page turns just for you.
I believe the other two were erasing hesitations in the playing.
Anyway, I don't know if I'll do more Medtner or not. The time investment is huge. I'd really need to think about it.
I did study your tag requirements but in General, as I somehow missed the sticky at the top. I use AVS Audio Converter to reformat from WAV to MP3. The only fields I filled out in the tag information was my last name, Medtner's last name, and 1-1 for Op. 1 No. 1. The MP3 goes on automatically there. Thought that would do the trick, but I guess not. I'll look into the Windows Music library option, as I don't use iTunes.
