Amazing man, You gave Such a soft touch To it, And It's Not to Fast and Not to Slow It is Just Perfect (But That's No Surprise.)

Yes, but it is not anywhere near as I want it. My current recording sounds like Idil Biret on a bad day, if you know what I mean. Coarse, metronomic, unacceptable.
I've the patience of Job. Give me six months. (Not kidding :lol: )

I managed to record seven preludes (and wait till you hear my new rendition of the Raindrop Prelude!) in one session with no retakes. I was "in the zone", I guess. I can't play that sensitively every single day but it is so sweet to capture it when it happens to come out juuuuust right.

Next I present number 15 in d flat major.

Very good! You play it muuuch slower than I do, but it's still very musical, and that's the important part. Keep providing us with your great recordings. :)

Your fan,

Thanks again Nico. Yes, I do pull the tempo out to the max. Chris on pianosociety is not keen to the slow tempo. I can understand where he's coming from, but I have a clear musical effect in mind as reason to choose such a slow tempo. I just love the way the overtones mingle and coalesce from the bass to the treble; a slow tempo really brings this out. It's Debussyesque. I think Chopin would approve. :D

Yes. I think that as long as you can justify your interpretation, it stands valid -- and musical!
