    By the way, since I am still new here, I am not sure if my recording showed up on here. Please let me know if I need to do anything different. I attached an Audacity file. Thanks!

    liszt1970,

    Your audio file does not appear to have made it. When you submit the file you have to attach it on the form where it says "Add an Attachment" and put the file in the "filename" field then click the "Add Attachment" button. Then, when it returns from submitting the attachment you can click "submit".

    Ed

    Hi,

    Ed is right. And when you do upload your attachment, it can sometimes take several minutes depending on how large the file is.

    Please go to your private messages. You have to be logged on, first. Then click on the upper right-hand corner where it says "You have messages".

    Oh, I see it says the extension "aup" is not valid. I think I have to transfer it to an mp3 file first. I'll try it again when I can figure it out, hopefully soon! Thanks for your patience!

    Yes, it did! I thought you did a great job on this etude. Good dynamic variation, not a note incorrect that I could hear (with my less-than-stellar speakers).

    Very impressive ! And almost perfect (though not quite, there are 3 or 4 very tiny smudges that perhaps only I could hear :wink: )
    Very clever how you create these 'dry' pockets, providing an interesting contrast, even though I am not convinced that the idea is a good one.

    Yes, I tend to experiment a lot with this Etude. Because of all the repetition- all 16th notes all the time- I like to try different colors and textures in performance.

    Thanks for the comments!

    An extremely well played performance! Hardly a key wrong in this very difficult etude and I like how you approach some passages without pedal and vary the dynamics. Makes it a lot more interesting. It even sounds like you apply soft pedal but that might be only the sound.

    I cannot help to think that you might have been inspired by Perahia's version of this etude as his interpretation and yours have similarities.

    Welcome to Piano Society!

    That's an interesting comment about the similarities with Perahia's recording, because my performance took place before Perahia recorded his Chopin Etudes disc. Maybe he was there and got some ideas from me? Just kidding, of course. I consider Perahia a really top-notch pianist, much above my level of performance. Thanks for your input!
