Inlanding - Gretchaninov Complaint: Message Board

Inlanding's Comments

Alexander Tikhonovich Gretchaninov 1864-1956, wrote symphonies, string quartets, operas, and sonatas for a variety of instruments. He was influenced and heavily supported by Rimsky-Korsakov.

Like many piano pieces, they look easy to play, but are truly difficult to play well.

Carey 2011-08-30 15:02:25 Beautiful piece - sensitive rendition - very impressive !!!

Just curious - what instrument did you record on ????
Mel / dannylux 2011-08-24 14:37:13 This is a very moving piece, and you play it with wonderful expression. Do you know Gretchaninov's Sonata for Cello and Piano? It's one of my favorites.
David 2011-08-23 21:00:01 Hi Glen,

What a lovely piece! First time I had ever heard it, but found your rendition totally convincing. It's very much like a lament and the technique employed is similar to Chopin's Prelude Op. 28, No. 4 where one has to keep the left hand very subdued, yet bring out the harmonic changes as they occur. You put this music across to the listener very well. Very fine playing!

wr 2011-08-22 06:42:22 Fascinating music, and beautifully played. I've known Gretchaninov's name for a long time, but have heard almost none of his music. Thanks.
Julian (SlatterFan) 2011-08-21 10:55:56 Gretchaninov was obviously a fan of Chopin's E minor prelude. My right hand would be trembling if I recorded this piece, worrying about each new entry coming in too loudly or softly! Very nicely played.
Cinnamonbear 2011-08-20 19:35:23 Wow, Glen. That was more than a complaint! What a heartrending piece. You play it so sensitively and eloquently. I imagine this piece is quite cathartic to play: good purgative medicine in certain instances. Thanks for sharing it!
Greg 2011-08-20 12:37:20 It's funny, I saw the title "Complaint" show up as the very first entry in the site, and groaned, "Oh, no, he's having trouble with the site!" :)

This does have a certain dirgelike "string" quality about it, at least in the opening.

Is this piece, among other things, a study in touch? It would seem to be the case.

Very heartfelt playing, Glen. Continuing to think of you in your ongoing journey toward recovery...
