    Hi guys, I am open to all kind of music and this is my recording and interpretation of Poortinga's etude ...
    R. Poortinga, is a Dutch musician and composer. He currently is studing at the conservatory in Holland.

    Any feed backs are welcome.....

    It's like some re-writing of the Revolutionary Etude. I'm not familiar with this piece, but I like it. :D

    Nice initiative johnmar, first time I know of that someone here records a composition by a fellow member. I will listen as soon as I have time (can't download/play mp3's at the office).

    Wow - PJF is right, it's a little like the Revolutionary etude. Interesting piece. Only thing I can say about your playing is perhaps you can play with less pedal. The left hand is a bit blurred.

    hej john,

    Thanks for posting my piece it's a great honor

    you play is very well but you could maybe at some more rubato in the B section. Great job! if someone want I will write more of my composition down to sheet and putt it on pianosociety. Got some etudes on variations on famous pieces :)

    gr,

    robert

    I don't remember every detail about Robert's own recordng, but it seems this one is better prepared and tidier. Being less wild and wolly, the closing bars however do not have the same impact here.

    I still don't like the middle section of this piece though. Makes the whole like a nice crispy toast with some undefinable mushy stuff in between.

    That sounds pretty damn good to me, both from composition as well as from interpretation!

    The tune reminds me anyhow on a musical melody from A.L.Webber, maybe Phantom of the Opera, but might be wrong.

    after listening the third time here are some study points:


    more rubato in the B part (why don't you like it techneut?)
    the ending play it hard!!!! not as soft as the other notes ( I know I didn't place F,FF,P,PP) I don't know how to do that.

    maybe a bit faster :oops:

    Never heard this piece before but as you say, the beginning sounds a bit lite the Chopin 10/12 but backwards ;). Sounds like it can be fun to play. Is it?

    I think so haha but I say that because its my composition.

    eh, if you got a fast left hand it is fun to play but its hard work my friend. I posted the score on the forum view weeks ago.
