From the outset, one of the things that struck me about this performance is the overlapping of tones by failure to completely release the pedal as the harmony changes. At certain moments, the texture becomes quite muddy whereas it should be clear at all times, don't you think?
That's true I have to work on that.
I feel that, starting at measure 19, the left hand becomes a little to loud so that it almost blocks the melody line. Even in some of the quieter passages (measure 61, for example), I don't hear all the melody notes.
I agree, and here there are another problem. When I record I use a audio cable so the result of the recording is not equal to what I hear while I'm playing. I've to think in some way to avoid this. And play the left hand a little softer as well.
You know that you need to work on getting all the right-hand notes of measure 73, don't you?
Yes, those fast notes are still difficult for me to play. But some more months of playing and I think they would be okay.
I think you slow down measure 84 too much. I know that there is a ritenuto at the end of measure 83, but the work seems to come to a stop; it doesn't seem to carry through to the final chord.
Thank you, I will take a look on that.
I think there is some good attempts at appropriate dynamic variations in your performance; it's often difficult on a recording for the full range of dynamics to be heard which is often a fault of the recording equipment and not of the playing.
Do try to listen more closely to what sounds your pedal is producing and/or covering up, and try to clean up the overall texture.
Thank you for sharing.
Maybe next time I will try to record the audio with the microphone instead of the audio cable, it may work better.
Thank you for your comment
