Live recording 2/20/07
Beethoven 32 Variations in C minor
Joshua Hillmann, pianist
If only you could see me giving you a hearty ovation! You are a very talented pianist. My only question is, weren't your fingers sore after playing this and Bach's English suite all in one sitting?
We need an ovation emoticon. :lol:
To say that was good would be understatement to the point of injustice.
Not really... though doing 9 etudes in the second half was a bit tiring.
A really good live performance and your technique is solid as a rock! Must been a success? And on a Bösendorfer 290...ah, would love to play on such an instrument.
The recording is up on the site!
Yes, the recital was a relatively big success! I have uploaded the entire recital, so you can see there weren't many glaring errors or memory slips, which is always a good thing. The attendance was around 90 or so, and that was on a night when the opera was dress rehearsing (many people in that told me they'd go if it weren't for the rehearsal), and also the orchestra had a concert across the street, so I'm sure there would've been quite a few more people, but all considering, it was great! I feel sorry for some students who do their senior or graduate recitals and only like 5 people show up!!
The video is coming, but slowly, as my schedule allows but marginal time for this. I'll post it soon hopefully in a youtube link or something in case anyone's interested.
