 Post subject: Enjoy the silence (Depeche mode)
PostPosted: Tue Oct 23, 2007 7:07 pm 
Here the "bohemian" and me are working hard.
Comic/absurd story with microphones (twice returned from warranty, always silent and unuseful).
But I've already recorded about 20 no-editing videos, and these will trace the new (negative) pole
of piano poetry and technique. Last saturday about 4 hours to record the K 27, and nothing to
do, but on sunday....better than the sum of Robert, Raymond, Gilels, Benedetti-Michelangeli
and all the guys you will :D :oops:
There are also other Scarlatti, Chopin, Bach, Stahlbrand, Mendelssohn, Mozart.
The atmosphere is often almost tragic (as my technique), but I compensate this fact with
strange faces, gestures, clown suites; in addition I really sing during playing, and in a Chopin
Mazurka one can hear also a whistle.
This week I'll buy a new computer, then I'll reverse all these masterworks from the camcorder
and I'll upload on the site.
Wait for me, and enjoy the last days/weeks of (my) silence.

All best,
Sandro

Sometimes a lot can be said in moments of silence. :wink:

On my Glenn Gould recording of the WTC, I hear him humming along on a quite a few of the pieces. Maybe it's a sign of genius, Sandro. Point in fact, I NEVER sing along!!! :lol:

Surely. More important the pauses than the notes.

Here and everywhere in Gould recordings. But this fact doesn't disturb me.
The only Gould (a genius) things that really disturb me are his versions of Chopin and Scriabin,
and more disturbing are his texts for these recordings....

I'll sing louder.

So true. I am anxiously waiting your recording of Cage's 4'33" :lol:

:D :D But in that piece (words of the author) are very important the sounds, the noises (of the pianists, of the public, of the piano when opened the keyboard...).

All best,
Sandro.

Concerning 4 '33 ", A friend of mine named "Arnold" plays it more beautifully than anyone else I ever heard! Then he follows it with a great
double version 8' 66" and ends it with a fermata.

I hear the set of variations (especially 9'06'' and 3'93'') are absolutely ravishing!
