They are c. 1900, so unfortunately, no.

A magnificent collection of etudes.

No. 5 ;)

I can't say enough of your playing, Andrew.  It is a pleasure to hear your expression, interpretation, and you top it off with your golden tone.  Do you have any other Liapunov recordings by chance?

Nice to hear! The only other one I've played in public is no.12, but it was a very long time ago. The audio isn't great, and the performance could be better, link below. (The no.5 one, on the other hand, I'm happy with.)

Bravo!  Have you considered doing a Liapunov CD?  He could surely use the exposure.

He could, but thankfully some good youngish pianists have taken up the case. I'm thinking of Florian Noack and Vincenzo Maltempo.

I wasn't that impressed.  Yeah, you pay more for a decent grand piano.  The guy and his playing got kind of old too.  I think it was the staring toward the camera.  And tension or something in the playing.

I wupped Batman's ass.

What else?

Actually in addition to the above masterpiece, I'm listening to Glenn Gould's acoustic piano version of the contrapunctus IX from the AF.  I think there's only the one recording.

Yeah, after the entry of the subject in the bass in about measures...I don't know, about maybe bar 100 or so.  It gets tough to memorize.

And forget about trying to do sustain for the main "Art of Fugue" when the subject comes in in Bb....AFAIC, it just can't be done.

I do think Gould's trick of increasing his tempo as the piece progresses is somewhat effective.  I mean, it's certainly one way to encourage the audience along.  I don't necessarily agree, but I don't have the whole piece in memory so I can't really judge.  It's a long-ass fugue, and it's kind of complicated in its way.

All right.  I found a trending piece of music.  Woo who!   ::) :P

Looks like the lyrics weren't quite what I thought.  I'm not surprised, but I wasn't really expecting that.  Be warned if you click here (which you will now)!
