HA, by saying so you are even more humble than him.
sorry! I hadn't understood humble this way, but I do agree also.
I remember seeing a video where he was telling he had difficult for interpretation. surely it's a non-arrogant speech.
(and I find that one of the composers he plays best is Catoire. hehe)
so "humble" is an adjective for people who say too obvious thing? :lol:
(my joke only makes sense because Hamelin is a super-human at the piano)
Yes, I'm realistic when it comes to knowing my abilities and limitations. In fact, I'm my own worst critic, but at the same time, I don't take myself too seriously.
really funny! I like the background music. hehe
another one here:
:lol: I'd post some of my own tech support services experiences after being connected to Bombay (now Mumbai), but the squirrel is doing a good job of it.
I used to work receiving calls in a technical support service, here in Brazil. the software was from USA (or Canada, I don't know) that's why I used to talk to american, canadians and indian guys, when I couldn't solve the problem myself.
it was common to ask the user to send the log file. one day I received this image as a "log file". I think I laughed for two hours!
it's not even a screenshot... it's a real photo!!
you play this "Chant Du Crépuscule" ripely and deeply from my view. You have a good feeling for the phrasing and the rubato. You let the music breath and give it so much of soul! I´m enthused!
I followed along with score and indeed I discover much chromatic and a quite arabesque structure, which I feel to be typical for the romantic epoque. From the rhythmical point of view this one is not so complicated, I think.
Please, don´t let discourage you by any pianists, who don´t have better things to do than to discourage a great one like you are. I only may say, that we all can be very glad to have you here and your beautiful and ripe interpretations of Catoire-pieces. Please, continue so! I´m looking forward to your next Catoire-recording!
I know you're quite busy this time of year preparing for school, so I'm grateful that you made time to hear this lovely Chant No. 2 by Catoire. Thank you so much for your very very kind words. I greatly appreciate it! Preparing these pieces is a lot of work, but it's most rewarding too. I'm entranced by the rich polyphony and harmonies of this haunting music.
At the moment I'm preparing the Chant No. 4. As usual, when I looked at the score and went through it away from the piano, I thought it would be easier than Nos. 2 and 3 already posted here. Nope! Because of the constant sense of change throughout the piece, it's difficult to keep it all in mind between practice sessions, so every time I sit at the piano, it seems like I'm starting a new piece all over again! :lol: I'm sure I'll learn and record it in the not too distant future though. I'm delighted that you enjoy this composer's music so much. We have to be cautious though--it's addictive!
Yes, right. And I´m glad to have stopped smoking, so I can become hooked on this, doesn´t matter! :lol:
