Here is my take on Paganini. Really difficult to play it clean. Tried to record it many times on different days. Maybe I just play it too fast:

- page 76, 77 Paganini, Niccolò Ghiribizzo n°24

Sorry about the delay on commenting on your rendition of this piece Andrei, but I felt unable to comment until I had practiced it a bit myself.

I think you have the tempo about the same as JF and you play it very well - though I think you have missed a few of the base notes in the B section. It does sound good with the tempo taken up a bit, though I keep making lots of mistakes.

Well done and excellent playing - I will be pleased if I can play it as well as you :)

Here is my attempt at the Novelette after the umteenth attempt and still not as good as I would like.... played it better
after I had turned the camera off, but ain't that always the way.

All comments of course welcome.

Hey Dave, congrats, this is a very clean rendition, I like it a lot. The only minor thing is not playing forte as indicated in measures 7 and 19 (I did poor job here as well...)

Thank you for your comment Andrei - I guess it took me so long to get a reasonably clean rendition of this that I neglected to put the forte in. How do professionals get it near perfect every time and still get all the dynamics in?

I don’t know what it is about the camera watching me, but it happens all the time.

However, you dont need to feel disappointed with this rendition it is very good. I wish i could manage the same.

Thank you for your encouraging words Colin, I'm trying to use the camera more and more on the basis that familiarity breeds contempt and eventually I won't even realise its there. I'm now playing catch up while trying to learn lesson 5's pieces at the same time, so using the camera quite a lot anyway.
