 Post subject: Rachmaninov
PostPosted: Sun Sep 24, 2006 1:56 pm 
I was recording at home the famous Prelude from Rachmaninov, here's the link to download it (Sorry, I'm German, so I dont know how to write it exactly: Is it C flat major or anything else^^?).

http://rapidshare.de/files/34277075/rac ... v.mp3.html

The quality is not very good, this s my meaning, I ?have made? mistakes, nobody is perfect but please listen to it, meanings are welcome...

Ah! Yet I know: Prelude in C-Sharp Minor, op.3 No.2.

Why don't you just use the attachment function of the forum ?

Man.... this sound is just absolutely atrocious ! How did you get such a terrible recording quality ? It clips, crackles and hisses with every note. Makes it almost impossible to comment on the recording. I believe that you can play the piano - the agitato part seems to have potential. There are not too many slips, but what is really bothering is you never seem to let go of the pedal, and you sometimes stop dead for half a bar or so. Also, I heard some strange arpeggios but perhaps this was out of necessity ?

Really, this just sounds too bad to be taken seriously. Get us a decent quality recording, and get your foot off that pedal once in a while, and we can perhaps give some useful critique.

I, too, think you can play the piano, but it REALLY is hard to hear everything. Maybe you recorded it with a cassette recorder? I was experimenting and tried that but learned to never do it again, because your technique and dynamics don't come out. Try to get a digital recorder and your recordings will be much better.

is this a mono recording......rhythms wise......I think(just me),,,,not sure you are looking for the correct chord or just too much delay in some entries this may confused with "rubato" playing.....

Otherwise, spend a little more money(or borrow someones) digital recorder....for a better job. But on the otherhand, its sound like a retro 1945 recording....coooool man.... You are just as sick as I am, - a little too creative......
