Hi Scott, beautiful and very devoted playing! I don't know this piece well, but if I'm allowed to nitpick: During listening I thought your touch is constantly so weighted that the difference between the musical climax and the other parts would become a bit obscure (Do you understand what I mean? what a obscure sentence...
) So I'd like to suggest to economize the weighted touch and the heartfelt feeling on "the other parts" and to explode it on the climax.
Thanx for listening. I fully agree with you. Part of the problem is that this piano (a Baldwin 5'7" grand that I looked up yesterday and found that it was built between 1930 and 1940) has hammers that have been compressed over the years of use. There are actually a couple of notes in this recording that didn't sound because of trying to hold back the weight. I also had the una corda partially depressed throughout to get some felt on the strings.
I unfortunately had to give up my 6' Yamaha grand a few years back because it was defining where I could live, and I was moving around a bit, so for an acoustic piano I have to rely on what is available.
