I have added your friend's name to the listing on the main site.
Thank you very much, Monica!
As I was doing so, I listened to the first movement here and enjoyed the middle section very much.
Thank you also for that, especially since you are "not keen on" sonatas.
(I´m totally keen on such, btw.
) This slow theme in the middle section in a first movement of a sonata is quite unusual, by the way, but I think, that´s the second theme here (in german: Seitenthema) in that sonata form. It´s absolutely interesting, how individually and freely Poulenc works with the good old sonata form.
This is very nicely performed. I particularly enjoyed the second movement, which I thought had a wistful tinge to it. Compliments to both of you!
Thank you, Andrew, I´m glad you enjoyed our performance. Yes, I agree that the mood in the second movement is quite wistful, that´s an example for a neo-romantic passage in that sonate in my humble opinion.
Seem I am being a creative language user again. I meant boxy in the sense of: as in a box, or confined.
Ah, o.k., now I understand (have mercy with a not so experienced user of the English language
). Could also have been, you are a fan of "boxing", and that my reverb had "boxed you off" or something like that, one never knows with your creative expressions.
I think the recordings might benefit from a bit more opulent sound, i.e. a bit more reverb. After all, Poulenc is not Bach
O.k., I will think about a new reverb-editing and if I´m satisfied, I will post the new edited files here.
As if there is anything to prove
O.k., "to prove", not "to proof", but "the proof", isn´t it?!
Btw, I´m going to practice on our Dvorak now...
