Congratulations!! Almost perfect performance!! Incredibly sound.
For my taste just a little more of reverb (left hand/pedal are sometimes too short/staccato) and swap the channels (I prefer to listen the right hand from this side).

If you post on Pianists Corner it would be more appropriate.

This is the wrong forum for these kinds of questions, but....

There is nothing technically wrong with the performance; whoever is playing it (you?) clearly has the technical capability to do so; that is not debatable. However, this performance doesn't do much for me emotionally, and there are a few stylistic peculiarities that I find irritating... others may disagree. This is just one of those pieces that will provoke strong opinions from those who are familiar with it.

It is like a midi performance.

Maybe it is.

Why are posting these MIDI performances here. It is the wrong forum.

Better post these on the DIGITAL forum.

I think it's excellent (assuming it's a real performance, which I think it is but I've been fooled on this and I could be again). There are some things being done that a lot of people would argue with, especially some of the ritards and temporary tempo changes, but I like it.

BTW the people are right who are saying this isn't the right place for such posts. Why not the "Members Recordings" section of Pianist Corner?

Let's skip the terminology.
Whatever they are, the thing is, they are NOT REAL.

Therefore posting them in "Members Recording" section is not appropriate also.

The guy who previously tried to fool us had done a slightly better job.

That is why I am suggesting you to post these on the digital forum. Maybe you can get some advice there from more experienced members to better enhance your somewhat amateurish presentations.

Well it is just so obvious for me.

Maybe it is because I have a digital piano and an acoustic grand and also have some experience recording a real acoustic piano.

I don't need to, but you can ask the OP how he recorded these (the number and type of mics, how they were setup, etc.), were they edited in some way etc.

Let's see what he is to say.

1. Hard to comment on sound quality when listening on a tablet.
When oh when will loudspeaker technology change after >100 years?

2. The playing is very clear, very distinct but also mechanical (my opinion), try to compare with Horowitz. Russian or Polish pianists, even French. This guy is German, it's hard.

3. Liked the last 30 seconds, it's done well.

4. Great piece, thanks.
