Okay, I've just finished re-recording the Poulenc. I tried using more pedal throughout and also bringing out the C in the last chord. The Gershwin Chord - still sounds like that to me. And the more I play this piece, the more I love it!!!
So...well...if anyone here can be so kind as to tell me if my pedaling is better now? Poulenc - Improvisation No. 7 in C Major
One thing I just learned in case anyone is interested - For some reason as I was recording a few minutes ago, lots of birds suddenly started singing when I was toward the end - the quite part. Maybe they didn't like my playing....I had to stop and restart about five times, but the birds kept singing. Well, when I processed the recording, taking out hiss and adding reverb, I discovered that most of the bird sounds are now gone. Isn't that interesting? (maybe only to me it is...).
@Hye-Jin - Thank you for listening and commenting.
@Eddy - Thank you for your thoughts on the Borodin piece.
It's not that I don't agree with them; I just can't devote anymore time to the piece because I have a lot more pieces I want and need to practice.
