"A rose by any other name ..." I for one consider it an etude. Just throw away the title and look at the music
. Exactly how is it not
Some of my favourite pieces are called "Etude". There's no reason why clear playing and good musicianship can't go together.
Monica, I think you did a good job here. Apart from the opening section where the RH runs have sometimes unnecessary accents and some unevenness (which aren't heard at the repeat any more), I enjoyed your listening. I espeacially liked the amazing dynamic control at the section B.
Hye-Jin, you listened to all three of my attempts and always had a suggestion. Thank you for all that!
This is a good version. To me it seems a comfortable speed and I surely would not enjoy it any faster. Do I detect a slight spedding up starting from bar 271? I would have mantained the same tempo till the end. You also make a ritardando on bars 50 and 51 whereas I would have not taken that liberty.
Overall I enjoyed it.
Thank you, Richard. My little rit.
is not written in, but is intentional on my part.
Bars are not marked in my score, but if you are talking about that you detect some speeding up at the 17th bar from the end, then I am very glad because it's marked accelerando
from that point all the way to the end.
