That sounded very nice, Luis!
I've processed the file, and provided the link here. However, I have more time to do PS stuff when I'm away at work than I do when I'm home, and while I have tried to get the other admins to do this part, and then I can do the site update when I'm at work (which would make it easier on all) the plan has not taken hold. So sorry about the slight delay but I will get the file onto the main site tomorrow.
No problem. Thank you.
Very good, Luis. Your new grand sounds so much better than your previous piano. Overall I find this recording a bit literal, but the climax is truly splendid.
Thank you, Chris. I have a C1, which I'll soon exchange for a C2. Yamaha's pianos got much better recently after the technical developments of CFX.
On the last page two lines up from the coda, there are pedal points in the left hand bass. All of them fall on the F's on the second beats. I took all those in the middle sostenuto pedal through the third beat of each measure. It sounds like you do likewise? In the coda I might use the portato touch even more dramatically to underscore the winding down of the piece.
you mean this passage below?
I don't find need for middle pedal here. I can reach the tenth chords, so I only use sustain pedal "normally".
since you're a "Rach fan", aren't you talking about Rachmaninov's 3rd prelude? that's one of the few pieces which I use middle pedal (that coda has a tonic pedal, in D, remember? =D)
about the dramatically ending of the piece... I made a mistake: I should play more FORTE, according to the score itself. My recording sounds like a mF...
