You do get worked up... As they say in English, if the caps fits, put it on!
I sure do. Because if you were to be right, there is no place for (most of) my recordings here or anywhere else. I'd like to think that they have some merit despite containing some cuts.
You, of course, talk for yourself, hoping no one has strange ideas and I would not put it beyond some people (I am not aware of anyone doing it on the site, so I am not hinting at anybody). After all, have there not been submiters who, uncapable of playing up to speed, have not been reluctant to speed the recording?
I don't know of any such here. There have been some that submitted midi recordings, and were found out quickly.
I suppose recordings can be done as you say, but I would find this very distracting and, at least in my case, amounts to stuttering and is, by no stretch of the imagination, a performance. They can be a recording, but of something that really did not take place and of something that very likely could not!
Exactly. A recording is not the equivalent of a performance. In a live performance, one forgives the odd flub. In a recording, one does not. Or do you buy only live
I had reams of recordings just as you say yours start life as, but most of them, I am glad to say, have been ditched by the notorious computer technician and I have no intention to start doctoring my recordings, which is one reason I have not submitted for some time. Maybe others feels as I do, that I cannot say.
As for flubs... and not wanting to hear... Speaking for myself at least, I am very much aware of them and am very conscious of when they happen. The recording I mentioned was one of many done over many months and that had been discarded exacly because of these flaws. Why would I suddenly have been satisfied with one recording when so many previous ones had been discarded? Would any pianist worth his salt and who is aware of these flaws, submit?
Not sure what point you are trying to make. But if you can't bring yourself to "doctor" your recordings, and on the other hand feel you can't submit recordings with flaws, then I don't see you submitting anything any time soon...
Now, have you ever known that you made an error, such as hitting two keys, then listened repeatedly and failed to hear anything wrong? This happens too and you cannot say that it is not wanting to hear, because you know you muddled it.
You mean you *know* but can't *hear* ? That seems like a strange way to go about it. It happens that I think everything was ok during recording. and when listening back I became painfully aware of some little flaw. In most cases, that is reason for a re-recording.
