No wonder I saw no repy: it was a new topic!
I had tried to do some recording with a programme called free something or another, but the amount of background noise was so great that I hastily decided the mocrophone was a dud. Then today I finally got around to installing Audacity (which I downloaded maybe three weeks ago). Miracle! Clear recording with little or no background noise! As the computer is too far from the piano (I can, of course, move one or the other in future), I had to put microphone volume at maximum. Some hiss and a piano in the background, but it did produce a decent home-made recording. In the end I recorded a Bach invention, a Grieg Lyric Piece and a Bortkiewicz Prelude but, alas! I am afraid there are too many musical shortcomings in the latter and lots of work will need to be done. The Lyric piece is almost acceptable, while there is a wrong note in the Invention somewhere. I attempted Bortkiewicz op 33/9 but I noticed the right hand is still most uneven, while The Angel just flew away. Maybe its the exitement of being recorded or maybe its just lack of musicality, I do not know. Daughter allowing, I shall try again this evening and hope for the best. At least this way I actually hear the shortcomings I always suspected I had but never had the courage to admit.
My wife, like yours, is an agitating member of the Pianoless Society, but, as our daughter actually goes to sleep listening to the piano, there is not too much she can say. These days as soon as I start to play, she (the daughter) will take a cushion from the sofa, lie down on it and take her nap. When she is in a mood I place her in front of the computer and play her videos of little girls, almost always Japanese or Korean, playing Tchaikovsky or even a Mozart Piano concerto.
I must say, the other day I found myself playing at 11pm and never realised it. My next door neighbour claims she has heard no pianos in the building.
The bells in Prelude op 33/1 are more Rachmaninoff's territory, though I did recognise some chords, as he seems to use the very same ones in his piano concerto for the left hand.
I believe you and Techneut have named almost all the pianists who play this repertoire so far, forgetting only Piano society member. Alexandre Dias, the pianist who recorded two of the piano concerti: Stefan Doniga; Lloyd Buck and Pierre Huybregts. Maybe Nils Franke ought to be included, as he recorded the complete works for violin and piano. That makes 12, not including me, of course.
