ChrisKeys 2010-12-19 19:46:46 This is well-paced. Not too fast, preventing the music from "marinating" to its full potency. And not too slow, becoming boring. And great dynamic contrasts: the sudden jolts between pp and ff, staccato vs. legato sections. Majestic.
Carey 2010-12-17 16:57:47 The dynamic contrasts may be challenging to match when I re-record the sonata with a digital recorder on my M&H BB - which remains a difficult beast to tame. But I'll give it my best shot !!
LisztAddict 2010-12-17 12:21:16 Hope you hear your new recordings on the M&H one day.
wouter79 2010-12-17 11:01:01 Ah I did not realize this is an old recording. For an old recording, yes this is good. Dynamics would then probably be amazing when recorded with modern equipment.

BTW the acoustics are good. Your timing in middle section is great. If you can play it again like this with a good modern setup results would be great.
Carey 2010-12-17 09:11:13 Thanks for the feedback !! This particular recording is of a live performance given several years ago in a large recital hall at a university, and the reel-to-reel recording equipment was high end at the time. I plan to re-record the sonata in the near future.

Nice start. Nice dynamics. Ending is odd though. I don't know the piece but it sounds like a cut halfway

Good recording, A little noise and I miss some bass, not disturbing but you might look into a good mic.
