    i remember that concert very well... expecially the Mussorgsky, and was waiting to listen to it again :)

    why did you use such a painful compression :O ? 80 kbps... and 22050 Hz...
    bye Mr Duffy

    I have not heard all of it yet, but so far it sounds great. It would be good to have a recording at last of this iconic work !

    Though I agree with Mr. Duffy... Compression to 80 Kbps is no good, it loses so much of the quality ! Any chance you can deliver a less-compressed version ? Not that this is too bad to go on the site, but it could be better yet.

    Having recording of this quality on Pianosociety is fantastic! I do not share at all the previous reserves about the compression rate: the sound quality is much above all what I eared up to now on Pianosociety, including my own recordings. The compression rate can be low because the frequency bandwidth is limited to about 10 kHz, which is not a so drastic limitation for piano sound.
    Well, I would not refuse a lower compression rate because the music is worth to get the better sound quality as possible. But as it is, I put it without any reluctance in my Itunes. :wink:
    My only reserve is that your piano was not as beautiful as the one of your fourth Beethoven concerto (a Fazioli ?), which I listen to for the first time this evening: a great moment of ecstasy!
    Chiara, thank you so much ! (My English is not good enough to tell you all the happiness you gave to me on this evening.)

    That's exactly what I'd like to say!!
    Your touch and interpretation are all very transparent, clear, at the same time sublime... And your technique is absolutely perfect, although these are live recordings...!!!
    I especially like the last section (no.8, 9 and 10), it was just breathtaking!!!!

    Thanks so much to all of you, my dear friends!!!
    It's always so very kind of you..!!!

    As concerns the quality of mp3 compression, I'll give a look if I can modify this.
    Thanks again!
