My Daughter playing this Chopin Mazurka from the score.
Recording the acoustic piano has been my personal challenge and I am now feeling a lot happier using the set up I worked with recording this piece.
Many thanks for viewing.
Thank you very much for having a listen and replaying, as always much appreciated. There is still much to be gained from Bethany working with this piece and we will post another link in this thread to show a more polished performance of it.
Pianist685 Thank you for your detailed response and thoughtful critique.
Posting this piece here when we did has been a valuable exercise perhaps as much for me the camera happy parent all keen and wanting to have a go with an different set up.
Bethany is very grateful for your critique and understands your observations better than I who has not played the piece and probably couldn't aside from spending a big chunk of time that I don't have to try and achieve that end.
The piano does have a good dynamic range and as you have pointed out, touch is a big part of getting the correct voice with which to convey the emotion contained in this piece. Just as much as the way you have written your response here so that one can easily interpret that you are being helpful and offering something which is considered and kind spirited.
You have given us much to think about through your response, it is clear that you have offered your detailed critique with the very best of intentions and it is true to say that by doing so enabled us to learn some valuable lessons.
You are also correct in saying that Bethany has not fully familiarised herself with this piece, it is her intention to do so. We will post another link in due course.
