Hi David. You're the only one who watched my Poulenc video. Thank you!
It's funny to me that you mention the sound quality. I actually had a bad time with the audio. I forgot to press the 'record' button on my Edirol recorder and then had to take the audio off the video file. The sound wasn't as clear as I like, so I spent what seemed like hours fiddling around with my sound-editing program. I tried out all kinds of settings which I have no idea how to work, and finally I got so tired that I just gave up and hoped for the best. The audio file linked above is not from the video - it's a separate recording made the other night - using my regular setup.
And now I have a favor to ask of anyone here: I re-did my Chopin video today. I tried to make a good recording; nice phrasing, dynamics, elegance, etc....but I just couldn't get it all together. I ended up making 38 videos today, trying hard to get it right. I don't know what's going on....I know this piece backwards and forwards, yet lately I can't make my fingers do what I want them to do. At least not up to tempo. There were times today that I felt like an elephant playing piano! So, I think this is the best I can do here. Of course, when there is no recorder on, I play much better....
Back to the favor....I'm hoping that maybe someone here is bored and would be willing to listen to this rendition and see if it's any better than my last one?? (And yes, I'm wearing the same clothes as that first video....haha)
