    TATA! Here comes my version of the piano3-part. I choosed crotchet=152 as a benchmark, but I played without metronome-beat while recording. If you agree with this part I`ll load it up as a wav-file in 44,1 Khz as usual via rapidshare.com or mediafire.com.

    It's perfect, Andreas. Also the dynamics seem OK and ready to accommodate our parts.

    My only worry is about the tempo. Don't you think it is a tad slow? If it was just me I'd play at 60 bpm the dotted half note. I'd like to read Monica's opinion too.

    O.k., Alfonso, let´s hear Monicas opinion. If you both think, it´s too slow, I´ll re-record my part.

    Well...when I first sat down at my piano with Andreas' version playing in my ears, I tried playing along but couldn't. It seemed extremely fast. But that's because I had not yet practiced the piece at all. So stupid me....I turned everything off, practiced, and now I can actually play my part.

    IMO - the tempo is fine. But I'm not as smart as you guys about knowing what is appropriate, so if you say it should go faster, then that's fine with me. I can play it now so it doesn't matter.

    And wow to your dynamics, Andreas. Guess I don't have to worry about being pp on this one. But I hope I can be ff enough!

    one more thing - I got all your emails, and will get the page up today. Thanks for that additional part, Alfonso.

    I'm not a zealot about an allegedly right tempo, I'm just trying to figure out potential problems. Slow playing may lead to heavy playing, as happened in some moments of the Romance. On the other hand, a faster playing means that one has to work more on his/her part and in-sync playing is harder to achieve. So I don't know well what's better to do here. What about letting Andreas decide?

    Welcome, Monica. Don't you wait for the Valse to be ready, before getting the page up?

    Sounds good to me. Your turn, Andreas.

    hmmm....ok! Then I'll go practice now, instead. :)

    My friends,
    if you feel it to be my turn to decide, we´ll take my version as it is. I think, this is a good "middle"-tempo (on the metronome-scala Allegro is between crotchet=120 and 168, so 152 is between), not too fast, so that we avoid the problems of a difficult synchronization, and not too slow, so that the piece becomes rigid or boring.

    I´ll upload my wav-file for Monica now. Is this right, or do we want to build on the recording now from bottom to top and let Alfonso to be the next, who has to record?

    Thank you very much, Monica and Alfonso, for your efforts concerning the texts for the main-page. (I feel a bit guilty now not to have done anything for this. :oops: )

    OK.

    It's now my turn to record. But in my case no need to upload the wav file, since I use it just as a cue and for that the mp3 you've already uploaded here is enough.

    Andreas, don't feel guilty, you're doing a lot a the editing console.

    Right, that are many hours of work. But I like it very much and I´m happy to do this for you and our common work! :D

    Alfonso, of course, you may decide this for yourself, but may be you want to take the wav-file for background-listening, because it has the better quality? I still had uploaded it, before I have read your lines.

    However...I just scheduled my piano to be tuned on Friday afternoon. So that means I will not be able to record until Saturday morning. Is that okay? Or do you want me to record sooner, even though my piano won't be in optimal shape?

    Wow, Alfosno, you are really fast. This evening I´ll listen to your track, now I have to work.
    Monica, you have to decide, because we don´t know, how bad the tuning of your piano actually is.

    Monica, no problem for me.

    Andreas, well, it was not exactly the Hammerklavier. :lol:
    Later let me know if it is OK.

    Well, since it is Wednesday, then Andreas can't have your two tracks pasted together until the earliest tonight, which means that I could possibly pick it up tomorrow (Thursday). And since my tuner is coming the next day (Friday), then I might as well just wait until Saturday morning to do my recording on a freshly tuned piano. Safer that way.

    OK, Monica. So, we'll have the Valse ready the next week, then I'll provide you with my own transcription for piano 6 hands of Bruckner's 8th Symphony, which hopefully is our next little project... :lol:

    Actually, maybe by Saturday night or Sunday depending on Andreas' plans.

    Ummm, ok - no problem.

    Here is the result of piano 2 +3. Wow, Alfonso, I congratulate you to this precise and musical work. You are excellent! (I just have made some very little corrections of sychronization.) The link for the wav-file will follow as soon as possible.
    Monica, it´s no problem for me, if you record at the weekend. I´ll find some time for editing, I think.

    O.k., Alfonso, I´m waiting for you ingenious Bruckner-6-hands-transcription! 8) :lol:
