I'd love to know what you think of this. Created on Kontakt with EWQL symphony orchestra and my own sequencing software. Music played by a computer has advantages over a real orchestra: you can play it at any speed you want, and you can programme the computer to synchronise with your playing. And I don't think the music sounds at all bad.

There is a 51 second (at the speed I play it) piano solo before the recording starts,which I didn't think worth adding. I could alter the speed if you wished.

Great job - it's actually instructive to hear the orchestral parts in isolation.

Btw, which EWQLSO version did you use? 

My only suggestion - add a subtle 'click track', perhaps the bass notes of the solo part, during silences, to guide tempo.   

Btw, I've found *all* the MMO recordings I've checked to be rhythmically inaccurate to the point of being nearly useless.   You may have carved out a new business for yourself here - why not try the opening movement now and post it for reactions - 

peace, Claude

Thanks for your comments.

My orchestra is mostly from the original EWQLSO silver edition, though I recently bought the Gold Pro and made a few tweaks.

My 1st movement is not really fit for general human consumption at present, but I have made an accompaniment for my favourite concerto - the Brahms Bb - which is a bit more polished than the example above. For fun I am about to send it to MMO to see if they are interested in publishing it (I don't think it's available there - or anywhere else), but if as is likely they aren't, it may put in a appearance in this forum at a later date. I was actually planning to do what you suggested: put in a discreet tempo "reminder" during the piano solo passages.

Here is a taster from the 1st movement - including the fabulous lead up to the recapitulation.

Can someone satisfy my curiosity?

I uploaded the above two orchestra-only tracks more than 5 years ago and people are still downloading them. (I'm not complaining).

How do people find these files?

Funnily enough I'm working on it right now, but it's for MMO. They are expensive but when it comes out later this year it should be cheaper because you'll be able to download it from MMO instead of buying the disc.

If anyone is interested in how the Brahms 2nd should sound, I've uploaded the entire concerto, with piano (by Pianoteq) added. Amongst other things, it demonstrates the amazing versatility of the Pianoteq piano.

In that I own (for the record) "Music Minus One's version of this Concerto," which is the actual name of the product, I was highly suspect of this entire post.  After reading the posts of "Stephen 22," I am most certain that this entire post is a surreptitious attempt to promote a "for sale" product as an alternative to Music Minus One.

I am not a fan of Music Minus One, and I almost fell for the supposed tweaks "Stephen 22" promised.  Nevertheless, it still does not ring true to me.

Additionally, as proffered by the OP, I am available by PM, if you so desire further guidance on this great Mozart piece.

Hey, "Brother," I do not email you.  You email me by PM.

What a magnificent conspiracy. (Though I'm not sure where the "for sale" element comes in).

For anyone who's interested, I am an amateur musician and this is actually my retirement hobby. I used to play Mozart PC 23 and my first uploaded audio file is from a piano-free version I knocked up for my own use on my computer. I'm thrilled to say that more than 1,400 people have been hoodwinked by my Machiavellian plot and downloaded it.

My Brahms 2 piano-free in the event was actually published by Music Minus One, which is why I didn't make the whole thing available here.  The second file was an excerpt (less popular, but it's a more tricky piece).

Recently for fun I revamped the Brahms and added a piano part. I thought the result was rather good, so I published the whole thing online. Why do I keep publishing these audio tracks? Because I want as many people as possible to listen to my music.

Sorry you're not a fan of MMO. It has its limitations and is expensive. But virtually none of the recordings of the great classical works (there are nearly 1,000 of them) made any money for Irv Kratka, the CEO recently retired, who regarded the classical side of his company as a sort of mission.

Stop the conspiracy with every new post!   There is nothing for sale; and really why he chose this website is of little concern to you. 

You need to stop the 007 spy act... it is not becoming and you do not play the part well.  If you think someone is not what they seem, THINK it... don't WRITE it.   Want to reject a free download, don't download.   Just quit TYPING your paranoia.

Mr. Podesta.

About 15 years ago, I caught myself having issues with paranoia.  I would react to something at work assuming a person was acting in bad faith, only to later discover that this was not the case after I received more information.   After catching myself doing this a few times, I came up with the following to correct my paranoia, AND IT WORKED!:

We all view things without knowing the complete picture.  We see someone make a decision or a request, for example, without knowing all the reasons for the decision or request.  What I decided to do in this case was look for POSSIBLE explanations (YOU NEED TO USE YOUR IMAGINATION!) for the decision or request, ranking them from the worst to the best.  I then always assumed the BEST case, until more information became available.  Then I would make new possible explanations for this decision or request with this new information, ranking them again from the worst to the best and then again assuming the BEST.

Example:  Someone that I never saw before asks me “What time is it?”  I can’t see if he has a watch on because he has a coat on.
Ranking them from worst to the best I come up with:

a)   He has a watch and does not need to know the time.  He is trying to distract me to steal my wallet.
b)   He has a watch and does not need to know the time.  He is trying to annoy me with his request.
c)   He doesn’t have a watch because he thoughtlessly forgot to bring it.  Why should I give someone who was thoughtless the time?
d)   He has a watch, but it is currently broken, perhaps in the repair shop.
e)   He has a watch, but he forgot it because he just learned that his son is in the hospital.  He needs to know the time to catch a bus to see his son.

I assume something like scenario "E" until more information is made available.  And so I give him the time with a smile.  Later as he walks away, I see that he actually does have a watch on his wrist!!  So with this new information I make up a new set of explanations (AGAIN, I STILL DON’T KNOW ALL THE FACTS).  First I check to make sure I have my wallet, and I do!  Here are my new possible explanations ranked in order:

a)   He has a watch and does not need to know the time.  He was trying to annoy me with his request.
b)   He forgot to wind his watch or replace the batteries.  Why did I give someone who was thoughtless the time?
c)   His just discovered that his watch stopped working, the poor guy, and he is going to see his son in the hospital.  

Now I assume something like scenario "C" until more information is made available.  In this case, I never saw him again.  I was very happy to help him by telling him the correct time.  :)

Applying my method described above, I do not know the reasons or motivation for this post, and so I use my imagination to try come up with scenarios ranking them from the worst to the best.  Also, having a sense of humor is very helpful here!

a)   The asker really knows what BS is, but is asking just to annoy.
b)   The asker really knows what BS is, but is asking just to be humorous in a good natured way.
c)   The asker really knows what BS is, but us asking to allow me to demonstrate my method in my response to the post.
d)   The asker does not know what BS is.

From my way of thinking, scenarios B, C and D are all about a tie and are 100% fine.  I will respond in a way that works for all three scenarios:

OP: I like the story.

Me: Thank you if you are referring to my “What time is it?” story.

OP: What's BS, by the way? or don't I really want to know?

Me: If I were to tell you that my “What time is it?” story actually happened, that would be BS. ;)  My story was actually made up just to illustrate a point.  ;D

As stated before, as a pianist/philosopher, my current designation is as a "Scientific Empiricist."  That means:  I cite sources for my argument.

Accordingly (specific to Music Minus One, which I own), I cite the following video of a pianist who chooses (some might say successfully) as an alternative method to learning a Concerto without two pianos or an Orchestra.



Parenthetically, I am most definitely not an aficionado of this particular artist.

My five responses to this supposed genuine post, always utilizes my whole name (louispodesta). 

Then this is followed by ten responses from someone trying to promote something like (and maybe? the same) methodology associated with using pre-recorded Concertos

This, of course is to serve the purpose of learning said piece without a second teacher and most importantly, a second piano.

My solution is to bring together University Piano Faculty Members (who have all taught these Concertos), and then go from there.  The knowledge of how to teach this particular repertoire is not unavailable or unique, in my opinion.

My video, which elucidates the difference between modern and "original" performance practice is as follows:


Hey, you broached the subject and not me.  And, (for the record) the "Music Minus One" version, (which I own) is not evenly remotely close to the "Original Performance" recording of Carl Reinecke, or for that matter the Alicia de Larrocha version on my video.
