Thanks for explaining Claudio. My Italian is a bit rusty, but Google translate gives me a fair idea of what you are saying.

Playing this ENORMOUS chunk of repertoire, even at convenient speeds, still seems superhuman. I think you should be making clear on your website how exactly you achieve this. The text 'Performed by Claudio Colombo on a Yamaha digital piano' does not reflect the truth IMO.

Next, we can debate what the point is in creating 'demonstration' recordings of pieces that have been recorded by many fine pianists...

Chris, on my website I wrote precisely "All the tracks performed by Claudio Colombo, on Yamaha digital pianos". It is very clear. To perform does not mean recording live. All people native speaker of English I know confirmed me that, when I did launch my website.

Here I put my live recordings: http://www.claudiocolombo.net/acustiche.htm. And in that page I wrote clearly: "Live" audio recordings by Claudio Colombo, 1985-1989, and 2008. If you want, I can upload some of this files on "Piano Society".

Otherwise, the "speed up" method is used only in some cases, and not because lacks of my technical skills, but because I prefer working on a "projection", from a musical perspective, to editing and/or cutting, and because the keyboard of a digital piano does have mechanical limits. I'd rather recording on my Bechstein acoustic piano, but I don't have a recording studio.

I am a teacher, not a concert performer (my last public recital was in 1988), and I am not searching for personal glory. Only respect for my work, as much as I respect yours.

Claudio

I did not know you also had 'real' recordings. You certainly have my respect for that. They sound well-played, at least from a technical point of view, but really dated in sound.
