Thanks for your detailed critical comment, Chris.
Nicely performed too. For a classical guy
I'd have wished for a clearer piano sound, and a bit more pointed playing with real jazzy accents, especially in the variations -
Thanks, I think at the beginning (and in the Coda, which is like the beginning) it would be possible (and may be better, though that is a pure matter of taste) to use less pedal, but at other places, f.ex. in the half=quarter-part I think I play quite dry and attached like a real "walking bass" has to be played.
the other piece is fine in that respect as it is less overtly jazzy (most of it sounds more like New Age to me).
I´m not sure, what "New Age" really all includes. The definitions are so different, that a discussion about that matter seems more or less impossible at that time. Indeed, there are some harmonic progressions in it, which are a bit surprising, also some "strange" dissonances, which disturb a bit
the initial beauty of that piece. But in summary for me it´s a nice quite flowing, somehow relaxing piece, which I like to play (and to listen to).
The clarinet sounds a bit dry, maybe some reverb would be nice
I just have added my usual reverberation settings for my Bach-recordings. I thought, it´s enough for these jazzy pieces.
though I found some of his glissandi a bit too schmalzy.
That sounds like german, the word "schmaltzy" (we say "Schmalz" to it). Oh, oh, I´m curious what my clarinet-partner will say to that.
We should probably put this on the _Various page, I don't think there is a case for a Garson page as yet.
Yes, I think, on the "Various page" is a good idea.
