    I know I posted this a while back on the old forum, but I think my current recording of this needs to be replaced. That orchestra is just too bad....so here is is, from Feb., March, or April of last year.

    Pardon the 'pops', I think this recording attempt screwed up the system a bit.

    EDIT: For the heck of it, just added the third mvt of the tchaikovsky first, recorded in december or january of 05-06, respectivly...

    EDIT #2: Added the first mvt of the tchaikovsky from a recital in the spring of last year

    I have just listened to the Rach and Tchaikovky III movements (the 1:st was not there when I downloaded them) and they are both extremely good and your piano and recording equipment must really be something extra. Incredible sound and your technique and music interpretation is wonderful!

    I just listened to the first famous movement of the Tchaikovsky and that was as good the previous (a couple of slips but what the heck, it is a difficult and long movement). But I could help noticing that the recording clipped a bit and that there also were a couple of nasty sounds here and there. It could be that I did not listen in headphones on the previous so I did not notice it. But again, a really great performance!

    yeah, i'm not sure what happened but after the Rach 2 everything seemed to go downhill with the recording equipment. it really bothers me because i don't know whether it's the computer, software, or the Seasound Solo that's causing it. I"m not sure if you remember the buzzing in the Ballade...

    Yes the sound effects do detract a bit (though not as prominent as in the ballade :wink: ).
    But what a great achievement ! Ok there are some slips and the tempi are rather more sedate than you usually hear, but even so. I think one cannot begin to appreciate how hard these concertos are unless one tries to play them. You are making enormous progress and one day I expect to see your name on the banners hanging from our famous Concertgebouw :D

    As always your final bars are most impressive. All's well that ends well is one of my favourite sayings.

    that, along with the second mvt of the tchaikovsky, is my project for theis spring. it really is no fun to have just one mvt. or 2 out of 3.

    oh boy, chris, i do hope i could play there!!!! :shock: that is such a beautiful hall (i have a video of rubinstein playing the brahms 1st there). one step at a time: i think i'll try to get into college first. :lol:

    No idea.... Nursing homes don't count anyway as they'll probably won't hear half of it.
