Ok!

I have PMed member Piano World (Farnk? The owner) about this but he didn't get back. I find nothing wrong with this really, so I'm going ahead in posting in hopes that I'm not violating any rules or something, which I didn't find anywhere, in the forums or the FAQ. If there is any problem, by all means delete the thread and I apologise.

I am looking for a pianist to perform a difficult[/b] piece of mine. Really difficult. So that you don't say I didn't warn you.


DETAILS
* I am looking for someone who would be able to do a professional job!
* I am looking for someone who will enjoy it (otherwise it won't sound any good)
* I need a quality recording, not a home recording (unless you have the right equipment + a Steinway \:D ) and I'm willing to cover all expenses of course
* I realise that this is a hard piece to learn and I am willing to discuss financial matters, in private[/b]. In short I'm willing to discuss some kind of payment or arrangement, but not in public.


Linkies:

www.nikolas-sideris.com/stuff/perniciosus.pdf (the whole score in pdf format)
www.nikolas-sideris.com/stuff/perniciosus.mp3 (the music, done with a poor computer and Giga piano)

Feel free to discuss things here (and thus bump the thread up! \:D ), or otherwise PM me, or e-mail me at mail *AT* nikolas-sideris *DOT* com.

If you wish to listen more music of me, feel free to visit my website, which can be found at my signature.

Thank you for you time.

Steinway isn't the only piano on which to make a good, professional recording!

I don't think that was the intention of that statement.

this definately is not the point, but do notice the words "right equipment" as well. It takes more than a good piano (Steinway are good pianos, right? not the only, but an example) and a good mic to do a decent work.

Anyways, if anyone can pull off a good[/b] quality recording then by all means, send a tiny mp3 sample so I can listen and I have no problem. I would be saving money after all.

if you're willing to pay for a studio recording, my teacher could do it. he does this type of jobs sometimes. pm me, if you couldn't find anyone else and want to contact my teacher.

I'll PM you, but also post it here.

Thanks \:\)

If you can, do print out the score and show it to your teacher, and mention to concetrate (technically) on pages 5,6 and 7, to see how difficult it is (these pages are the "impossible" pages to learn, the rest is... doable)

And yes, I would pay for the studio recording. (but will check prices first! \:D \:D \:D \:D <-semi-joke here...)

sorry to bring it back on top, but just so you are aware, we have agreed with Avguste, so I'm no longer looking for a pianist.

Thank you to all the people who contacted me. \:\)
