Chopin Etude OP25/1 new take - part 2

Postby johnmar78 » Sat Dec 09, 2006 1:43 am

Thanks for pointing out my miscounting in the last op25/1 submission. so I went home and took another hot sessions-26 takes. I picked the best three. So this time I do checked with the scores carefully.

Chris, please choose the one you think is the best and delete the rest. Thanks again.

My God! The first take showed an uncommonly artistic depth, not to mention a high degree of technical acumen. This is by far the best I've heard you play! The first recording needs to go on the site, IMHO. (Although I very much like the recording already on the site. Don't 'nickel and dime' it to death!)

I'm impressed.

I should not be picking out the best of your takes John. That is for you to decide. And you should be submitting only that one. It is important to listen to yourself with a critical ear. And as Pete said, you can also leave well enough alone.

I listened only to the first take - really fast played and with a beautiful melody line. Congratulations for that! Seems so that I should dig out that etude again to update my recording of that here in order not to fall behind...
So my deep respect for that!
Beside this I agree with Chris and Pete, you should not post several alternatives. To be honest, I am too lazy to listen to all takes and make a choice. This should be up to you.
