I think your Youtube site is a perfect example to show that there is an almost unlimited number of great works to play even if one does not have conservatory level technique(which includes me). I looked through the entire list and there's not one piece there that isn't a terrific piece of music.

Here is a particularly great recording of Clair de lune(which you posted earlier)played by the second prize winner at the most recent Chopin Competition(right after the Bumblebee performance on the automatically playing music at his website):
http://www.ingolfwunder.at/

I would work at speeding up your performance of that piece a little.

thanks pianoloverus. it's been a lot of fun to work up these pieces and record them for youtube. i call it 'the diary of an amateur pianist'... far from perfect, but satisfying to build this little repertoire for my pianoworld & facebook friends.

lovely rendition of clair de lune by wunder. wish i'd have been influenced by it prior to recording it.

frankly, i think that 9 footer needed some voicing of something... i was kind of dissappointed. The 190s there sounded better. Of course, if I had played something a bit more 'boomy', i might have been impressed. I played WTC I #5, the prelude.

Nice one! Great work, Entheo! I like the way it turns into fullness. There is a lot packed into this short little piece. This was a pleasant surprise. grin

i'm finding there's quite an audience for the music of Gurdjieff / de Hartmann on YouTube. here's another...

not sure what you mean by "you people" -- it's just me here. i've been interested in the fourth way since @ 1972, and the various offshoots (enneagram, objective music, etc.)

Hi Entheo -

Just curious - when recording on your M&H with the lid fully raised, where exactly do you place the microphone(s) ????? You always achieve a very nice recorded sound.

carey, i'm using a Zoom Q3 camcorder, so the condenser mics are built into the unit. i put it on a mini-tripod sitting right on the back of the plate -- et voila. i also tweak the unisons before recording, although at this point i'm due for a serious professional tuning.

cheers...
