these are nice performances. I appreciate the "3D" level approach of voices on Stories of a Century.
And In the night has a quite interesting atmosphere.
Thanks for listening. Yes, I was wondering if anyone would pick up that, the 3D aspect!
I think I could have done a lot more with the repeats and dynamics, but until it is revisited, it stands for better or worse. I wish I could have sampled the grand for the last (and lowest) note, the upright's lower register is not puny, but not "growly" as a note we heard in the Chopin piece Monica posted in the AR
In the Night is all about the atmosphere
my downfall here is I tried to hard to make the left hand legato and didn't focus on the balance between the left and right hands!
The sound is pretty good though there seems to be some ringing noise around the strings which I had not expected in a studio recording.
It may be the compression of the files, as with both of these recordings the uncompressed versions were compressed here down to 32 Kbit/s. I realize encoding doesn't really have an effect on the sound, but when its extremely low... perhaps yes...
