It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
Loc: Perth, Australia
Yo Piano World,
Here's a recording I made today of the famous Fantasiestücke, Op. 12 No 2. After watching myself play, I realized a lot of flaws, the entries made by the first subject is quite rushed. (IMO)
I recently played this for a piano competition, I was very nervous.... I couldn't pedal properly because I was literally shaking. I usually am nervous, but never to this extent. To a more healthy extent I guess...
I don't perform in this manner on stage, the extravagant gestures just reflect my personality, I command the stage with much more seriousness.
I intend to play this piece in upcoming competitions.
Here are the main comments I received from the adjudicator at the competition.
- Lots of mislearnt notes - The more gentle ''F'' section were played with far too much aggression - There is a need for greater understanding of this music! - The raw material is convincing.
I shall upload a more serious performance once I have made corrections based on a combination of adjudicator and Piano World comments.
