Schubert - Impromptu Op. 90. No. 4
on: December 16, 2008, 02:01:21 AM
This is one of a few pieces that I've been improving and keeping up all the time since I started learning piano (14 months ago + I had keyboard/synthesizer lessons as a kid).

Overall I'm quite happy with it, but maybe you can hear I overplayed this piece.  ;D
I can't make some of those fast phrases sound the way I want it to. It's either my technique or my digital piano (Roland HP-201) that is holding me back at this speed.

Some little mistakes and one big one.

I have not actually heard this piece before and you gave a good first impression.  My first thoughts for improvement are mainly the dynamics.  You really don't change volume or intensity much.  The separated runs tend to become a little tedious as well.  Those few small changes will make a world of differences.  However it was very good and I liked it. 
I am no longer fighting my inner demons.  We are now all on the same side.
