    Now where have you been Jennifer ? What's your excuse this time ? Been practising, eh ? :lol:
    Anyway good that you're back now. Too many people seem to drop away and never return.

    A nice and bouncy performance of this happy sonata. A couple of little slips and missed notes, but nothing disturbing; good style and tempo. I guess these repeated notes are tricky, and you do them well. Pity that the piano seems a bit ot of tune. But then, don't they all - except for those of us who are tuners.

    Not sure if maybe you want to correct these slips and missed notes before we put this up on the site ? You don't have to, but it would be nice of course.

    LOL yes the piano is starting to go out of tune. This is my Petrof piano and we (people living in NY) have been having some terrible weather with lots of rain, heat and humidity. The poor piano is suffering but will only need to hang on a few more months for it to get tuned. It gets tuned twice a year.

    As for where i have been, well who knows. I always manage to keep myself busy. If not, someone else always manages to do so.

    I will try to record it a few more times to see if it will get cleaned up a little better.

    Are these any better? I think "take 4" might work:)

    If none of these are any better than I don't have a problem with the very first one I posted going up.

    I don't usually listen to several versions and decide which to use (that is the task of the artist) but I made an exception here. Yes, take 4 is superior to the other takes, far fewer slips and missing notes, so we'll use that. Apart from the piano tuning, my only real niggle is about the descending LH figures in the opening section, which are rather clunky. But it's not a big deal.
