Well, I think if I just take out a couple of my played notes, then it will be fine. Regarding the last 16th note...do you mean in the 14th bar from the end?

There is only last 16th note on that page :) If that is in bar 14 from the end, so be it.

But that brings me to a question: How do you know it's a 'reading' error, and not just a slip?

Because it does not actually sound wrong, and because you do not allow slips.

I heard some slips in your version too. Maybe they are 'reading' errors? Do you want to know where they are?

Only if they're reading errors. All the slips I know where they are :)
But I'll redo mine anyway, and make sure I listen to some pro recordings to weedle out the read errors. Anybody plays any note different than I do, I hear that right away. It's a curse.

Ok, pm sent ;)

Thanks for that :D
But really, anything scurrilous and/or salacious ( what wonderful words :D ) should be shared here on the forum for all to enjoy. That is what we're here for ! Not to talk about music, that is boring. This story having been common knowledge at one stage, there's no good reason not to post it, is there ?

I think we all do. I don't think it's a curse though. It means you know the score very well and therefore can correct your errors.
Or maybe you mean it's a curse for others because you can find Their errors.... :)



Arghhhhh...you just posted something before I was done here....

Andrew told me the story. Nathan would love it!! I want to know what piece Faure was playing!

I think it was one of the op.36 Nocturnes, possibly no.4 - certainly the anecdote was told in the context of that piece.

*gasp*--that's the only nocturne of his that I've played/recorded. And I did it with clothes on. Or did I.....? :lol:

I'm staying out of the general discussion, but I did like the recording, Monica.
I usually judge Barcarolle tempos by imagining someone singing the Barcarolle from Tales of Hoffman at that tempo, and yours is quite credible. (Not very scientific, I know, but I'm married to a singer who used to sing that song a lot for some reason.)
