And another one of Liadov's great Mazurkas (well I think they are great anyway).
Recorded this morning. Couple of slips here (shit, I really thought I was ready to record this... maybe not...) but nothing really ugly.

Liadov - Mazurka Op.31 No.1

Wow. That sounds like one of those pieces you need three hands to play.
Great job. I didn't hear any slips. No need to re-record.

This is sensitive played, and yes, the dance origin of the Mazurka comes through and sounds convincing this way. Also from articulation and dynamic, you play it expressively. Great ending - don't change anything! Same opinion as Monica - great job!

Actually, Russian Mazurkas are strange things... They never really sound like Mazurkas, at least not those of Chopin or Szymanowski. They always sould more Russian than Polish. But that is ok, I love them all the same. I would be pretty content with this one if it were not for the slips. I worked on it for a long time but it still seems like it was not enough. Ah well, it'll have to do for now.

On protection ? Of course not ! Wouldn't know how to do that even if I wanted to.

:?: :!: What are you talking about? Copyright protection?

I think you pulled it off pretty well. Sounds like there are pretty tricky ornaments in there as well as rhythm difficulties. And you are right, it does not really sound as polish mazurkas. The heavy accent on the third (sometimes second) is not as obviously marked in russian mazurkas.

Yeah thanks, but what about the music then ? I am a bit dumbfounded Liadov seems to raise so little interest here ... Best thing usually said is 'Nice, reminds me of Chopin'. Am I the only one finding Liadov an absolutely great piano composer who, for all his influences, is very much his own man ? :?
