Chopin nocturne op.9 no.3
« on: October 29, 2005, 10:07:44 PM »
Hi everyone. Here's a Chopin recorded I recorded on my Yamaha upright piano. It's Chopin's Nocturne Op.9 No.3 in B major. This Nocturne is one of my favorite Chopin nocturnes, and I learned it over the summer. Any comments on my playing will be greatly apprectiated. Thanks for listening! :)

Well done! Nice time in hearing your present. Try to play the first third of the piece as you did it in last third, which sounded very secure and professional. Did you learned the piece backwards from the end? ;D. I liked also the way you managed the tension in the middle part.
The left hand sounded a bit percusive to my taste, I prefer it more as a murmur in the background. Maybe it's because the mic placement; try by moving it towards the trebble. Wishing you do have access to an improved recording equipment as your abilities deserves.

I also felt some hesitation at the beginning. But the end is very impressive. Bravo!
What is you recording hardware?

Wow. Thanks for the replies guys.

It's kind of weird, since everyone who listened to my recording of this piece says that they loved the ending. :)

btw, I used a cheap $20 microphone. The program I used was Audacity, and I edited (to get the static out) using Nero Wave Editor. The former program is free and can be found on the internet. I don't have the site right now but if you search it on google you'll be able to find it.
