i play this piece with a dotted rhythm because playing this piece make me feel relaxed, and playful. I play with these dotted rhythms because it makes the piece sound more playful and joyous.
sometimes i play with the even meter but, only when im very relaxed and at peace. it all depends on my mood, when i recored this i was actually in the middle of taking a break from practicing liebestraum by Liszt. i was having a lot of fun, and making a lot of progress, and this recording reflected that.
ray i hope this doesnt offend you but i dont believe in playing things exactly as their written, i believe we must express ourself through our music, and the dotted rhythm is my form of self expression, at least in this case.
as for the tuning, i guess i was just tuned a step down when i recorded this... oh well :p
