    2 preludes

    About 7 years ago, I started studying the piano preludes of Dmitri Kabalevsky... wonderful little miniatures.

    I tried a few interpretations of them with an innovative software called Superconductor, running the edited MIDI file to Gigasampler and a Boesendorfer sampled grand...

    The process to interpret these was FAR too much of a pain - when you got a file into Superconductor and got the parameters set right, it was AWEsome, but the process was WAY too tedious.

    So, now with Finale HP and GPO, I bring you a redux of the series (as I have time to render them)

    Enjoy!

    PRELUDE 1: Very rhythmic and melodic... the sound quality is superb. Like the chromatisism a lot. Do you play and record it?

    the 4th prelude was always one of my favourites!!!!
    except I played it WAAAAY slower... I just thought it sounded nice slow, like a sort of funeral march.
    That book of preludes is a lot of fun. it's not all the most profound music, but it's a pleasant change from the regular repertoire, isn't it?

    and well, you don't have to convince ME of how well Finale + GPO + HumanPlayback works

    I've studied the scores, and worked on a few of these for fun, but never performed them. I like his unexpected twists of harmony!

    heh...

    These are mostly little fun pieces, and not profound, you're right... but I sure have fun with them.

    I've actually slowed #4 down from my earlier tempo - I like it faster - played like you're right on the edge of losing control and having a major musical train wreck LOL

    Very interesting pieces. No 4 is particularly good. Good things do come in small packages.

    Nice job on these, Jonathan.

    Considering Kabalevsky worked for some years as a silent films pianist... perhaps taking #4 at "potential train-wreck tempo" would indeed be appropriate... lol!

    Best,
