Are there 3 or 4 movements in this sonata ? Its structure may be unclear: it consists in 4 tracks (sometimes more), the third one being in most cases what I play here.
It is dubious. But I do believe that the Adagio and Fugue do belong inseparably together, the Adagio being too short and open-ended to stand on its own.
I hope you that you will not miss the fuga too much...
I did. But that's just me, having a Thing about Fugues
Nope, did not work indeed. I checked, and strangely, we had no Beethoven recordings by Andy Lee on the site ! I can only think he asked us to take them off (that happens now and then) and we forgot to update the pages. Anyway I have deleted these links, they don't make sense when there are no mp3's.
Now about your recording. What gorgeous sounds again ! How I wish my recordings could sound like that. Heck, half as good would be nice already...
Despite this being a musical and considered performance, there's a number of worrying flaws which you might like to address:
- rhythmical inconsistencies (do
count, especially in slow pieces !)
- occasional overpedaling
- misreadings/slips/missing notes
If you need me to be more specific I can have another listen with score tonight.
