    Hello,
    I have recorded the Chopin's Nocturne in B-flat, op.9, n.2 and I was wondering if it would be possible to post it here.
    Let me know your thoughts.

    Thank you!
    Aline

    Hello Aline,

    Nice to see you back here! :) I liked your interpretation of this piece. A couple things caught my 'ear' though. 1. You missed one of the flats in the first turn. 2. The sound quality is not so good. There is a lot of noise going on like something is rubbing loudly - maybe your clothes, or the bench? It's quite distracting. Also you may want to bring your recorder closer to the piano.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for listening the recording. Actually, I am using the Urtext edition, which doesn't not have the indication for the flat. I check the Hinson edition and that one has the flat on it. So, since the harmony it's in C 7, perhaps without the flat would be more correct? Anyways, the noise must have been from the pedal. Maybe if I place the microphone in the back of the piano, that would pick up a better sound. I'm opened for any suggestions on that.
    Thanks,
    Aline
