Hi! I'm new =)

My recordings are at www.jeanhuang.com under recordings!

I hope you like it, and if you don't, I would love advice. I'm currently applying to try to go to graduate school for piano performance for my master's. Hopefully somewhere in NY or east coast!

Congratulations on your playing. I'm not familiar with the repertoire you have recorded, and I'm a violist so will leave others to discuss your playing, but I have been recording a lot of piano lately. So, in general, I think that your playing merits a better quality mp3 than what you've put on your site. My observation is that you could do with a microphone with better bass response; the microphone seemed placed a little too far back from the piano. I'm curious to know what equipment you used to make the recording. Also I find 128 kb/s fixed bitrate for an mp3 far too low for any classical recording. For a fixed bit rate, 160 kb/s is really minimal. Hope that is of some help.

Oh dear!! I don't know a thing about recording equipment!

I used one recording microphone.. (not sure what it was), recorded it in my home.

I'm going to look into that mp3 part though! Wow, I didn't know any of this!
