That's quite a piano you have there. Very full and rich sound. You played this prelude very well too. Nice and powerful. There was something strange with the recording though. It seemed to keep switching balance from left to right on my speakers. It was quite annoying and distracted me from the piece, so you might want to see what's causing that. Anyway, nice job. Thanks for posting.

Tkank you Robert.

Here is different recordings with the ZOOM at differents locations :

4 meters rear from the piano :

2 meters rear from the piano :

The last one is the one in my first post (near the piano.

Many people prefers the recording at 4 meters from the piano, it is more natural.

I agree with those who prefer the recording at 4 meters from the piano.

Gorgeous sounding instrument--so rich and full in the lower registers, and clear in the upper.

Also, your playing was really very very nice. I really enjoyed it. Gaby Tu
