Sorry about the low quality of the recording equipment at this point. I really need to invest in some soon.

Here are two pieces from Kinderszenen I recorded at church yesterday. Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.

Traumerei Op.15 no. 7

Kind im Einsclummern Op. 15 no. 12
Currents: Telemann - Fantasia in d minor
Beethoven Op. 126
Mendelssohn - Prelude and Fugue in e minor
Debussy - Les Collines d'Anacapri

Hi pianogirl! I listened to Traumerei. Very nice. I saw you shake your head at 1:21.. yes, a little flub, but not that noticeable so don't worry about it! smile

It was a little difficult with the recording/microphone to discern dynamics, but I liked your interpretation very much. The only suggestion I might have would be to watch your hand position. I saw a few times there was a backwards curve in your hand, where your wrists were very high and your first knuckles were bent backwards to keep your fingers in proper playing position. Be careful of this..
Every day we are afforded a new chance. The problem with life is not that you run out of chances. In the end, what you run out of are days.

Traumerai is a bit overplayed for my taste, but loved the "child falling asleep"... Havent heard it for a while... Brings back memories...
You have a natural touch for this kind of music I think. Not too much emotinality not too much drama. Just beautiful, plain and simple as it should be played - like a child falling asleep
