Recently I didn't get any nofitication of this thread (now I guess I clicked a wrong link for unsubscribing on my email
), so I'm very sorry for this too delayed reaction to your kind comments.
Yeah~ that's an idea
But before that David has to enter the facebook and you and I have to be friends
Whenever I browsed the forum, I searched your post concerning that recital. A pity that I cannot hear your achievements now, but I believe you made the best decision! Best wishes to your new job and moving into another state, too
Thank you for your kind comment! Indeed I think that performing music for others (a real audience or recording-listners) is sometimes like playing-act in a theatre or something, mainly because of artistic sides like getting into the spirit of the piece, but also because you have to pretend not to have any technical problem with it
The Op. 57-1 is rather simple, but the other one demands more practice and time to think about one's own interpretation, of both of which I still need more.
Thank you!!! I'm very happy that you like these pieces and performances
I really appreciate your detailed comments! I'm marvelled at your ability to catch all of flaws in my performance without having played the piece yourself
The first one was good too but it seemed slightly stiff, especially in the second half, understandable for what seems to me too like a fairly tricky prelude to sustain for the duration. The only other thing I noted is that the run toward the end seemed a bit muddled. Maybe just a bit more freedom of expression could be in order overall.
This comment of you is exactly what I'm thinking about my performance. The muddled run was actually shocking to myself, too, but I had no time play and record that piece once more. That run is not difficult at all, but I was just too nervous to play it correctly. About the rather stiff interpretation... I thought the same thing. But how to find my "freedom" between so well webbed structure, that is my still unanswered problem, especially in respect to the agogic aspect. So I decided for dynamic variations, but it didn't come off well on this recording
Thank you very much for your sharp critique again!
