    Hello Piano Friends,

    Here is a new audition of Schubert's Moment Musical in F minor, lest you think I have forgotten about The Society.

    I have been pretty busy with my medical practice lately but am still playing a lot. Also, I'm using a new optical cable which is supposed to yield better sound quality.

    Please tell me what you think ,and if it is good enough, please make it available on the site as a download.

    Sounds nicely to me. This one could be a bit faster IMO. The rubato between bar 8 and 9 the first time is a bit too much for my taste. The last chord of bar 18 should not be forte. The sixth in bar 23-26 are not so exactly played. In bar 21 is a little slip in the repeat. The little rubati bar 27 following are very nice IMO.
    In summary still a nice performance. Congratulations.

    Yes, the quality is very good! Perhaps there's a little clipping at 0:55.
    The piano sounds softer to me than in your Pathetique-track.

    Very nice in my opinion!

    Thank you for the adivce. I can't begin to make you realize how importante your advice really is.

    Regarding the last chord of bar 18, I know it is not marked forte, but I thought it sounded like a nice attraction to the chord following; ditto, in the repetition.

    I know I have to work on those sixths, any hints/tips?

    As far as the tempo goes, I've seen this particular piece played at a wide range of tempos, I will try a little faster though.

    Regarding the piano sound, it is indeed softer than in my pathetique track. I used a different sample on my Clavinova.

    I guess some clipping did occur between 00:55-00:57.

    Marcelo.

    I practice such things in the following manner: first I try to play the sixth in a very slow tempo and very eve (perhaps with metronome), until they are very accurately together. Than I accelerate the tempo step by step, not becoming faster, until a certain tempo is accurately played. I do this up to the tempo, I wish for the piece. Sometimes I practice them rhythmically (f.ex. as dotted or double dotted rhythm or as triplets. I develop own sixth-exercises, which contain the passage of the piece and which I can practice in an "endless repeat". It´s important to stay always in a certain eve beat and not to interrupt for a while.

    Yes, the tempo is a matter of taste, indeed, and my suggestion to play it a bit faster is absolutely subjective. "Allegro moderato" is not an exact metronome-prescription, but has a certain variety of basic beats. (You can find them on the metronome-scale, as you probably know.)
