I'd like to replace my old live recording of this ( http://pianosociety.com/protected/liszt ... wright.mp3 ) with my recent studio recording. Hope this isn't too much trouble. There was quite a lot of mechanical noise on the previous recording as it was recorded on a very old Steinway. I've tagged it with composer as Wagner-Liszt which is I believe the correct convention, as opposed to Liszt-Wagner.

Wagner-Liszt - O du, mein holder Abendstern

It's no trouble....I will do it tonight. :) (just wish there was a way for me to do this work while I'm at work....like a cloud program or something like that)

Regarding naming...The composer should go first, followed by the transcriber, so you are fine here.

Not, not fine... please do not use spaces in file names. Server side scripting will barf on that.

Don't worry about it, Andrew. I'll fix it tonight.

Oops. Didn't think about spaces in the name. Should have just used the Searle number! I can reupload with dashes throughout if you like.

Ok, I've replaced this. The sound quality is very good!

Thanks, Monica. Glad to hear that about the sound - there was a lot of work went in on removing various pedal noises, the odd spurious string sound, and room noise.

Hi Andrew,

I had heard your earlier rendition, but this studio recording is a big step up in the sonics department. The piano sounds rich, and I'm sure it inspired your playing too. Excellent!

David

Thanks, David. Yes, a very nice piano; it was a pleasure to record on. The sonic aspect has taken a lot of work. Because of the nature of the piece and the mics picking up everything you could hear a pin drop, and metaphorically speaking, often did! Many studio hours spent getting rid of pedal noises, chair creaks, odd string noises, gurgles from the heating system - but it's been worthwhile, I think.

Thanks; it's certainly some way removed from the typical style of piece in this genre!

Hi Andrew,

Yay, my internet is allowing me to download files that are not partial :) So I listened to your recording. Really great recording, here. This is some wonderful music, by the two larger-than-life titans of romantic music :P Your phrasing and dynamics throughout were excellent, I almost thought I was listening to a type of story. I love the way how it starts in a high register and ends in in a mid-low register. I'd like to hear the orchestral version of this sometime as well.

Thanks, Riley! I've now finished with preparing the full set of recordings within my transcription project, and am dealing with the artwork for the resultant cd - I hope to have everything off for replication very soon. It's been a LOT of work.
