    I translated your wma file in a mp3 file, the format that most people here are familiar with. It is here attached.
    I will never be able to play this piece but I would like to get a chance to make piano recordings with sound as good as this one : how did you do ? Which piano ? Which room ? Which microphones and at which placement ?
    Thank you very much in anticipation for your answer.

    Dear Didier,
    many thanks for your kind reply and for translating my wma to mp3. I just didn't think about it!!!
    :eek:)
    Thanks for your appreciation on my playing; as regards the recording, yes, it is a very good one. I had "the best" of everything... i.e. a Fazioli piano (the piano of my dreams...) and a beautiful recording studio, entirely made of wood, in the Dolomites....
    :eek:)
    Unfortunately this was an unique opportunity....
    Have a nice Sunday!

    hey, perfection has been translated into an audio file... I don't have strong enough compliments for that, just - congratulations!

    Lucky you ! And next to all that, you have the best of techniques too. I cannot imagine this being played any better. Even though seem you slow down ever so slightly for the coda - a wise decision probably, better than taking unnecessary risks. World-class playing !

    Thank you ALL very much for your kind words!!!!
    I'm blushing!!!! :oops:
    :D
    Techneut, you are right... It's a bit odd. When I play in concerts (i.e. when the situation is much more risky!) I am much more audacious, while in studio I have the tendency to be (excessively) controlled....
    :?
    odd, isn't it?

    :)
    thanks to all of you.
    by the way, if I will not be answering to posts in the forthcoming days it will be due not to laziness... but to a journey...
    :)
    have a nice week

    Okay, so I had to listen to this one twice in a row ... it's not like I have a crush on you or anything. Will you marry me? :lol:

    Seriously, very good performance, if a bit safe/slow. That piano has incredible sound. Congrats!

    Agree with previous posters (but for the marry me thing...enough with one for me ;))!!! Absolute world class playing! A pure touch of wonder and soooo crystal clear! Love it!

    Speaking of stoopid gun incidents, did ya'll see this yesterday?
