Black Keys Study

Postby PianistSk8er » 01 Sep 2008, 23:19

Over a year ago (in March 2007) I made some recordings using my teacher's Steinway. I was not fully impressed by the quality of these recordings, and I kept telling myself, "I'll redo them later." Well, it's been over a year, and I still haven't gotten around to it, so I've decided to go ahead and share them with you now...

I will start with Chopin's Black Key Study. At the time of recording I had been playing this piece for just over three months. It's one of my favourites!

Any harsh criticisms, comments, etc. are welcome!

Bravo! That was Magnificent!

Your style is very clean and void of Superfluous gesture and affectation.
It reminds me of the way Perahia plays.


Keep up the great work! I can't wait to hear more.

Thank you! It's nice to hear that you think it sounds "clean". In general, it's hard to play that piece without at least a handful of wrong notes!

I'm just getting around to listening. Pretty good! :DNice use of the bass...interesting inclusion of some wrong notes (or as I call it, "artistic seasoning" :lol:).
Per Sapientiam Felicitas!
