That is a very enjoyable performance with lots of nice things. I'm sure there are some tiny slips and things that could be improved but it is very well played and good by any standard. I'll put this on the site tonight (time permitting, I'm extremely busy working on the new house).

Hi, Chris!

Yes. There is always space for improvement.
And I decided to leave 3 or 4 slips in the recording.

Thanks.

Hey Chris, I'd be happy to volunteer to draft a bio from time to time when I can. Perhaps you can give me the name of one of the more "pressing" composers to start with?

Most of the bio-less composers seem to be the ones I submitted. Like Bowen, Mayerl, Moeran, Rubbra, Rodrigo, Respighi, Tveitt, Takemitsu, Vauhan Williams, and most glaring, Hamelin. There may be some I've missed. Pick anyone you like.

Hi Luis,

It's been many years since I've played this Rhapsody, but I remember it well. I believe you capture the spirit of the piece very well and play it with conviction.

I believe I read elsewhere that you have a different piano now. It sounded very good in your recording.

David

Thanks, David!

Yes, it is a new piano. It is a Yamaha C1 (but within 2 years, I will exchange it for a Yamaha C2, or maybe a used half grand Steinway, I still don't know...)

Hi Luis,

It is very nice the way you create an interest in the counter melodies in the left hand.
The left hand outlines are balanced beautifully and supportive.The dynamics are excellent.

Thank you so much for sharing. Everything is performed in a frank and forthright manner.
The interpretation is original and you did not overdramatize anything.

Kaila Rochelle

Hi Luis, I'm back..... :)
Have I listened to this already? I think I have, but I'm not sure. Anyway, it sounds very nice.

Thanks for re-listening!

Though I think you're trying to rub it in, talking about your vacation while we were working. :lol:

But I haven't talked about it at all. And besides that, how many times have you told me that you are going to the beach.... :P

Hi Felipe! (or should I call you Luis??)
This piece is one of a few solo pieces by Brahms which I know quite well :)
You did a good job! I felt an unique sensitivity in your recording.
But for improving I'd like to point out that in your recording the LH is too prominent compared to RH, the pulse you give the bass seems to prevent more fluency in this piece. And many outer (and higher) notes in RH are too weak.
Nevertheless, I heard a very sincere and honest Brahms!! :D
