    I'm working on this and should have a really nice recording ready for the site in a couple months.

    What you find below is a 2002 recording of a scholarship audition on the University's Kawai RX-3 Piano.

    I got the scholarship.:D

    Well played. Though you did not attack the piano like Arthur Rubenstein or Richter (but that's mostly for pleasing the crowd, nothing to do with musicality)

    Thanks. I practiced it so much, the neighbors can play it. :lol:

    I'm trying to bring it back to that ridiculous tempo, so I can make a cleaner recording. I'm at about 144 at the moment, aiming for a final tempo of just a shade over 180.
    I'll do one of two things, achieve success or go crazy trying. :wink:

    very impressed with your prelude. You must be working 4 hours a day to acheive that result-180.

    anyone else, i think Pete deserves more praise than being ignored.

    Stop, you're embarrassing me! :oops:

    Thanks for the kind words.
    I don't know whether I can do it again at that speed or not, it's nerve-wracking! I might just settle on 168 or so, that's fast enough. Maybe I'll be able to control the dynamics more at a slower tempo. In the closing of the recording, the tempo approached 200, which was (I think) just a fluke, I can't play it that fast, so I'm not sure exactly what I did. I was so nervous, I don't remember playing it.

    Anyway, blah, blah, blah it's full of wrong notes, but that's ok.

    'Nuff outa me!

    Glad you liked it, rinis!

    Pete
