    Moonlight

    Well, I don't do much of this. This was done as an exercise, and I like the result. I can't speak for Ludwig.

    This is audio only, using GPO Steinway.

    Op. 27 nr 2, Presto

    Richard, I'm still getting "Forbidden" on this, too.
    [Exact error message below.]

    Hey, PM me when you get this working, will you?
    I don't want to miss it...

    Thanks,

    Very exciting, Richard! Did you play this yourself? It certainly sounds very natural. If I could just mention that at a couple of places you forgot about the double sharps

    It no easy piece to play. Nice to hear this again, it's rare that one hears this movement played when all attention is focused on the undeniably beautiful first movement. But I think this movement has equal if not more beauty in it....

    Re: Moonlight

    Let's re-name it "The Forbidden Sonata"--! After going through the various Forbidden screens mentioned here, I tried Ray's fix and that worked--Good going, Ray!

    Richard--What a fantastic surprise, having this classical solo pour forth from your Redwoods venue to mine via the internet. Not at All what any of us would expect from one of your posts, being familiar with your modern atonal work.

    Doesn't that GPO Steinway sound incredible?--Yes!

    Completely in awe of the chops it takes to play this--I'm not hip enough to know about the apparently missed double sharps. I was just transported and am thrilled, with Beethoven, and you, Richard.

    Wow--Thank you so much for this.

    Bravo, Richard!

    An invigorating, exciting performance over which I believe
    Herr Beethoven would be smiling!

    Well done, I say!

    My best,

    This sounds good on the GPO Steinway. I used to play that piece myself "on tour" in Belgium and Holland. By the way, the second movement is also very, very good.

    But I noticed some errors. Have a look again at your score (original and copied). They are at:
    the beginning, first/second bar (major tone in the left hand while it is minor)
    at 1:08 - 1:10
    at 1:22
    at 1:29 -1:30
    at 2:47 - 2:51
    at 2:58 - 2:60
    at 3:12 or about
    .... I can go on with this, but you really should correct / control your copy.

    I did this by ear, not having the score at hand now [during the last concert my sonata book disappeared miraculously].

    When this is a life recording, well done.

    Hello Richard,

    I concur with David! Woderfull played and a good example how much goooood the GPO Steinway sounds.
