    I found an old recording of mine of Liszt Consolation no.3. Please have a listen!

    I would also like to have this included on the pianosociety archive if possible!

    Thanks.

    Well, sorry but I have issues with this one too.

    As I was listening, I was thinking that maybe it is alright for the site, but then the ending came along and you totally messed it up by separating the last notes from the phrase. Really, I can't believe you did that! Other things: You played many of the low LH tied notes. Could be a difference in editions, but you should check that. The places marked with staccatos and slurs sound too dry - maybe a little added reverb would help. Tempo fluctuates too much like in bars 45-46 I don't think you should slow down there. Then there is a strange editing clip at 3:27 where the sound changes and the piano is suddenly louder on my right speaker. These are just a couple little things to iron out - maybe you can redo this?

    I haven't listened to this performance, but I can confirm that you are absolutely right about this (this wouldn't be an edition variant). It's one of the few places where the sostenuto pedal may be necessary to sustain the tone (or ar least very subtle flutter pedalling :wink:)

    This is not at all a bad recording but I agree with pianolady's points. In addition to these, I find the 3-against-4 sometimes awkwardly executed, there are some inaudible notes, and I also find that the sound suddenly changes at 2:02. Seems like this recording is made from 3 diferent takes ?

    I respect and (usually) enjoy your playing Lap, and I know you can do better than this. Not that it cannot possibly go up on the site, but I would encourage you do re-record it and make it sound more flowing and floating. This is a very vulnerable piece that has to be played just right.
