Learnt that 8-12 is brand new to you, congratulation! you did a very great job!
As I also play this, I can imagine how great it sounds live (not recording).

Best Regards,
Faj

Yeah, I posted a video recording on here of that etude a couple weeks ago while putting finishing touches on it...  The few weeks after that until the recording were quite a ride.  Many late nights after that (staying in my studio at school until like 4-5am every day practicing), especially since this 8-12 etude was the last piece on the program and I was pretty tired!  Seems it payed off!!!  Middle of the night practicing is always more productive since there's less distractions.   ;D

Yes, night is the best time to practice. It's quiet.

Excellent interpretations and playing, particularly of E and d#m. I didn't like f#m so much, it could have been more "con forza" and "capricioso" but that's just my taste, you played it very well. The E major was beautiful, wonderful singing octaves. The only thing was that I could frequently hear you repositioning for the next phrase, which interrupted the flow (which was great) a bit. Nitpicking, a beautiful rendition. Your d#m was great.  8)

I presume that you were playing the Bosendorfer in Katzen Hall, the same one that Sergei Babayan played in a recital a couple of months ago. Is that an "Imperial" grand, or just their normal concert grand? Interested to hear what it's like to play that piano vs. a Steinway or Yamaha or Kawai or Baldwin, the pianos we usually encounter onstage.

Your E major etude is excellent. As Arensky said, the top notes of those octaves really sing! And having attempted it myself, I know full well how difficult it is to sing those octaves and excecute those jumps accurately, especially when it comes to the section in triplets! I've always attempted to play them without a break, but there's always a 50% chance of missing, especially in the two bars where the RH jumps to and fro over a span of two octaves.  I think you did a really good job in using the phrasing to help you maneuver around that difficulty. Something I can definitely learn from. Bravo!

You are a very poetic player!  I like that you always pay attention to the melodic line and the direction the music is taking you.  You made these technically difficult pieces sing with grace and ease. 

Very beautiful indeed.   ;D

Yes, this is the same hall and same Bosendorfer that Sergei Babayan played on when he played a recital at the Bosendorfer International Piano Competition this last January.  Were you at Babayan's recital?  The competition was great as well... they let me be the announcer again this year.  ;D

I just got the finished recording back from the studio, so I replaced the mp3's attached to the first post.

I was at the recital, it was extraordinary  :o . Stayed the night, watched the junior division piano selection in the morning but then had to head home to prepare my classes  :P . Next year I will plan things a little better so I can attend the competition.
