Kaila,

Thanks very much for your detailed listening and compliments. Very much appreciated.

My impression is that perhaps the third movement could be just a bit more joyful in the beginning.


I agree. There are many trillos there, so it's difficult to get them all out on the modern piano while making it sound natural.


Joe

I don't know this piece at all, but this sounds very impressive. Lots of beautifully clear articulation. The third movement fairly bounces along effervescently - really well-handled, as it is all too easy for things like that to become untidy.


Thanks, Andrew. The third movement is one my favorites among the Haydn sonatas -- although a presto, it also seems particularly rustic and dancelike.

Hello Joe,
Magnificent sonata, beautifully played ! I have difficulties to make any remark not done by the others, I can only join the choir and say bravo ! Regardin the dynamics, it seems to me that you certainly provided a good dose of it, but maybe your microphone is compressing slightly your recording, doesn't it ? Otherwise, rather professional recording... Congratulations !

Hello Francois,

Thanks much for listening and for your compliments. I'm always trying to experiment more with miking (just been using the mics on the little Zoom H4N for these Haydn sonatas), though of course I don't like to blame the mics for anything -- the dynamics can always use more preparation as well.

Joe
