Liszt - Chapel of William Tell
on: March 11, 2017, 11:51:13 PM
This is a recording I made for college prescreening. (And yes, I did get invited back.) Originally I was going to play Mozart Sonata 7 and Schubert Impromptu 1, but they wanted different repertoire at the live audition so I opted for this and the Mozart. Let me preface this by saying I never "learned" this piece. I kind of threw it together for the prescreening. There's a lot of mistakes and it fell apart a bit in the middle. But it's a piece I love and I might actually go back and learn it for real. Anyway, tell me what you think and sorry about the recording quality.

Well, I think your love for the piece really shines through and that you probably would play it really great if you "learned it for real".

In this version, the chords are sometimes a bit unrecognisable, and the tempo wobbles quite a bit. I'm a bit surprised that you didn't use more pedal for the sempre pi rinforzando bit.

Is that good or bad? I think it sounds better that way....
