Remembering the great Maurizio Pollini
Legendary pianist Maurizio Pollini defined modern piano playing through a combination of virtuosity of the highest degree, a complete sense of musical purpose and commitment that works in complete control of the virtuosity.

lol yeah i'm a bit the same but i'm getting better! it was funny, after i listened to yours i went and listened to me playing it a few months ago, and it was so neatly boring compared to yours, however i think i sped it up a bit more recently...or at least i hope i did cos it was really quite boring!

Great technique, it's not an easy piece at all.
I love the suite, and the Passpied specially.. (:
Good job, like your playing.

Ok., good new and bad new

Bad news

I disagree, you lost the touch.
You somehow managed to lose the 'Debussyness"
THere were also numerous errors, and there was little dynamics, not enough expression, you did not create enough atmosphere for me to enjoy the piece. The dynamics stayed almost static throughout, or its not obvious enough.

Good news

Ermm, good effort though, how long have you played this piece?

Other comments: You have to create an atmosphere for Debussy, try again, record another version.

hahaages ago i don't play it anymore.

*shruG* thank you for your comments. i'll decline on commenting on the errors part. but on the part of the debussyness... just what is debussyness? how would anyone know? shouldn't it be up to the performer to interpret how it should be like? if it sounds good enough and it works i say no problems. if everyone played it the same way, in the same style... it'd get boring,ainit.
