Carey 2010-12-17 19:13:22 Jeffrey - I listened to the entire Opus 101 - with the score in front of me (something which I probably haven't done in over 40 years). I'd forgotten how unbelievably DIFFICULT this work is - both from an interpretive and technical standpoint. Makes the Opus 110 look like a piece of cake !! Its quite an accomplishment not only to have learned and memorized this monumental work, but to be able to play it as well as you do. CONGRATULATIONS !! Sure the recording quality was less than perfect - but that comes with the territory when we record at home !! I'm hoping that you'll have numerous opportunities to continue to perform this sonata in the future.
wouter79 2010-12-17 11:19:51 Sounds fine! Nice phrasing and dynamics.

Yes piano can use a little tuning, but don't worry ;-) Beethoven's own piano probably sounded worse (wasn't he deaf?)

recording. Good, no clipping, no noise, balanced. Record level could be a bit higher I think.
Minaku 2010-12-16 22:11:30 Jeffrey, don't worry about it! It held its pitch fairly well. I really enjoyed this first movement - I felt it was sensitive, nostalgic, with a touch of whimsy, but you never let anything get overly emotional and you were always in control. A pleasure!
jeffreyjones 2010-12-16 16:25:22 I apologize for the state of tune of the piano.. I just moved and the tuner won't come until it has rested for 10 days! Phooey!
