Piano Again - Beethoven Sonata No. 3 in C Major, 1st mov. 2/3: Message Board

Piano Again's Comments

Even though this falls short of what I had hoped it would be (darn those thirds!), I learned a lot from working this up enough to make the recording. It was done all in one take, no editing. Recorded on a Zoom H4; piano is an Estonia 190.

Piano Again 2010-12-18 19:19:19 liszt85, thanks for the advice. I totally agree that more slow practice and attention to detail would help this a lot. I was just determined to pull it together enough to make a recording for this occasion, so I just plowed ahead and did it.
liszt85 2010-12-18 18:39:05 A great start to the e-cital. Its evident that you enjoy making music! Some constructive criticism if you don't mind: I think this is too fast for you right now because if you slow down the recording and listen to it, I'm sure you will hear a lot of unevenness in note values. The trick is to go back and play slow and practice slow until you've got it all under your fingers. I'm sure this is not an easy piece to play and you've got the idea behind it right.. all you need to do now is practice slow, make it even, and you have a gorgeous piece in your repertoire that you can play extremely well! I'm saying this only because I think you've got great potential (I wouldn't care to post such a comment otherwise ;))! Thanks for sharing!
wouter79 2010-12-17 10:53:59 Great, particularly for a single take. A bit too long sonata for me, I prefer the more condensed works ;)

Recording is fair,no noise, balanced, but a bit clipping, watch your record level.
I prefer a bit more distant mic setup. Piano sounds nice.
