This is a recording of me playing the third of Schumann's Fantasiestucke. Please forgive the debilitated piano and the poor recording "equipment." I'm learning the whole set so I might post more under this topic if people don't kill themselves after listening to me. \:D

Tell me what you think...

EDIT: Once again, forgive the terrible piano and recording device. This is the fourth of the set. I'd still like feedback if someone would like to offer it:

Nice effort, akonow. I can hear that you really feel this music. In Warum, Check your music at measures 3, 15, etc. I think you are playing an extra note (Eb) in your left hand here. The last note in the right hand in measure 19 is a little rushed, sounding more like a 32nd than a 16th. Your grace notes (as at measure 8) also sound too rushed. The marking "Langsam und zart" means slowly and tenderly - your tempo is about right but you need to work on making it sound more 'tender'. I would also clear the pedal more often, being careful to keep the pedal changes from sounding too abrupt.

This is a wonderful little piece, and one that is actually quite difficult to play musically, but you're definitely on the right track! I actually posted my own recording of it here on Pianoworld a few months back.

Thanks for your input! It's much appreciated. I'll get right on sorting out that piece and taking your suggestions to heart. \:\)
