Chopin Fantasie Impromtu b section
« on: September 30, 2018, 01:41:44 AM »
2:30ish
it is strange,  yes this entire video is strange, but beyond the odd seating position,  crazy body English. costume etc
that actual notes played, is this from an edition I'm not familiar with or is it just Lola being Lola. and throwing in some, of her secret sauce to mix it up.  dont recall ever.hearing those notes...wouldn't  e the first time  stuff like this makes record. pull  some of the Gould records of Mozart sonatas.

I do love her tone and sound overall something about the piano or mic set up but the audio is superb some.of the best quality I've come across whoever did post edits. man job well done cause it sounds killer

Yes, Visitor your aural memory is correct circa 2:30 and also circa 2:17.
But Lola redeems herself from her improvisatory flourishes (which I believe
Chopin allowed himself the liberties) through her post-Colonial attire and deportment.
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come

Yeah she's just improvising, which I'm completely fine with. if Chopin and Liszt did same thing to their works, why can't we? More players should follow her example.


seriously though, she is hot as f. THOSE LEGS.

At 1:00, that pinky high in the air is suggestive of tension in her hand and poor technique.
Nevertheless, I'm actually quite a fan of the improvisation at 2:15, and not quite so much at 2:30 but I still like the idea of it.
Also I do like how we can hear the percussive impact of each hammer hitting the string in this audio setup.
