You have quite the repertoire and a very nice sound. I hope I can some day carve out my place in the recitals, and do maybe half as nicely as you do!

Thanks. I think it's very nice to play these kind of pieces, anyway, but to be frank, the type of places I'm playing at, I have no fear of someone saying, "Oh, but it wasn't that difficult, was it".... As far as I can see, so long as it's played well enough, people like it! Isn't that the most important thing anyway?

Of course, I can play more difficult pieces and I do perform those as well, but the added bonus of performing pieces of this level, is that because they are easy for me, I can really focus on my performance skills, like getting used to being out there and playing as musically as I can. There's more to refining an instrument than the practice room!!

Good luck with your own recital plans. :)

You're so right Lucy! It's about the music, not the performer. Lovely rendition, BTW.

loved your expression. Difficulty is a matter of perspective. To many of us this is still a hard piece.

The mic, (I think) didn't do you justice by booming the bass. I'd love to hear you play this again with a little better recording setup.

BTW, your skill and musicianship came through in spite of sub-optimal sound equipment.

I'm not sure the mic, itself, was at fault, more a problem of where it was positioned. It was tricky to set up, where it would have sounded better, because of having a music stand in way. Also, I probably should have made a cut in certain frequencies, using the graphic equaliser, to lessen the problem. I'm no expert!

Well, I did this home recording, 3 years ago, with the same mic, but the boomy bass is not so pronounced.
