Recorded this last night, I like it but it seems strange somehow. Comments are welcome...

Chase, that sounds beautiful to me!
Especially I like the soft long ending.

Also, thank you for pointing to this (for me unknown) Scriabin Prelude.

I don't know this, either, but it's nice. Good job on dynamics and keeping a smooth left hand flow throughout.
The sound sounds fine to me.

I know this one well, as I dearly love this Op. 11 set. You play it most beautifully, the dynamics and tempi done to perfection. Even so, it could IMO do with a touch more languor and tenderness - probably achieved by just a little more rubato and perhaps some more pronounced phrasing. But it is very good as it is already.

Not sure what you find strange about it !? All I could spot was one inaudible LH note in (I think) bar 4, and what sounds like a missing note (and a little discomfort) in 2 of the 3 arpegggios near the end. Nothing to worry about though, just me pitnicking. I'll put this up, unless you tell me not to.

Thanks for the thumbs up everyone; :D

What I find strange is that it seems misshapen somehow; I tried not to be to extreme with the rubato, now it sounds dry and too straightforward. Yes, it could bend a little more, particularly the eighth note quintuplet figures in the LH. I think the inaudible note in bar 4 sounds ppppp, and the arppegios were what held me up with this piece for a long time, it's hard to get them without smearing the pedal. Here the pedaling was perfect, yes one of them is a little unfocused but it's time to move on to another one (recital in 67 days) Next are the G major Op. 11 #3 and the Left Hand Op.9 #1 in c# minor.

Maybe it sounds strange to me because I'm too close to it right now; I'll leave it alone for now, have a bunch of other stuff to work on anyway. Yes Chris, this can go up (we can always take it down).

Ok, I'll put it up (we never take anything down btw unless someone permanently parts with the site).

Yes do move on and give us the rest of that great set ! It is vintage Scriabin.

HEY!!! That's a new rule! What about rerecords?

I think I can do that by 2008, probably sooner, we'll see...

Obviously one can always re-record a piece (if not too often otherwise we'll go crazy here). That is something else than taking a recording down isn't it.

That's what I mean when I say "I can take it down", I mean replacing it with a better recording....

And on to the G major... :shock:
