    Re: Chopin's 24 Études (My interpretation)

    I've unlocked the thread as Guy indicated he wanted to change the title. The game is on again ! Round two, everyone's a winner :D

    You'll have to put in the links again I'm afraid, as I took those out when I locked the thread.
    And yeah, we know the drill about you being a good pianist... you said so many times, here and elsewhere :mrgreen:

    If you prefer I can put I'm a bad pianist. What would you like me to write that will make everybody happy? Tell me, and I will do that.

    Guy, I feel like I've wasted too much of my valuable time trying to figure out your intentions. You went about this whole thing so badly. :x

    Chris and Monica,
    Is it possible to expunge an entire thread? If so, no point preserving these skeletal remains. If not, I will be back to pick up these bones and discard them. :?

    Oh no... you leaving already ?

    I can think of one thing.

    Do. Not. Pretend.

    This would not "make everybody happy", as we still do not like manipulated music, but could at least restore some of your credibility.
    Personally I'd leave it to others to decide if if I were a good pianist (after producing some plausible evidence).

    Expunge, I had to look that up :lol:
    Yes we could have ditched the whole thing. But it's sort of fun, isn't it ? You should see the behemoth thread that blossomed at Piano World in a day's time ! I felt things were kinda boring here so decided to unlock the thread again. Don't follow it if you don't want to !

    OTOH, if you have some bones to pick (do I understand correctly ?) by all means do so :)

    I've noticed Chris puts on his good side when he posts on PianoStreet, must be intimidated.

    Anyway, as I mentioned on PianoStreet, for me it is the best piano forum around.

    And pianoLady, what a shame I wasted your dear precious time. So sorry!!!

    Well, I'm an unknown newbie there and had no intention to start rubbing shoulders with the local bigshots. I only posted two short messages to try put in perspective some things that were said about what's been going on here at PS. On my best behavior, obviously.

    I can understand that. The place where you get the least flak is the place to be. Off ye go then !

    Thanks, we'll try. It will be boring without you though....
    If you start a new thread on Piano World I'll come and watch. It's mighty entertaining.
    That reminds me to check out all these kudos from concert pianists on your FB page :!:

    You make me feel like a star drawing all this attention to me, checking me everywhere I go, the forums I hang out, my FB wall. Of course, some will say, "get a life!", but that wouldn't be nice, would it?

    Eddy, your expunging idea is good. I'll do more cleanup when I get home from work.

    I guess one of the problems for the listener is that once you start from the perspective that these are edited midis, albeit ones initiated by a pianist's performance, it doesn't take much imagination to realise that the performance doesn't have to be good, accurate, a tempo or anything. It can all be done by edit thereafter. Now I'm not intending to imply that the OP can't play the piano, nor that there has been wholescale dishonesty going on, but frankly a competent sightreader could play through many of the etudes at quarter to half-tempo and let the editing do the rest. 25/6 really isn't that hard at slow tempi - it only becomes difficult when you approach the required speed. 25/10 at slow tempo is trivial. That nagging doubt surely hangs over most listeners' perception of the project.

    Hi Andrew,

    Let's avoid the subject of how close my original versions were from the enhanced versions. Let's just talk about the process. My question to you is, do you believe there is a certain art in editing "artistically" some works such as the 24 Études or others of that caliber, and what value do you give it regardless of how close or far the original is from the final result?
