    Sonata for Piano in f-minor I. Allegro con brio

    In

    http://soundclick.com/share?songid=6179458

    I'd like to share with you the first movement of my piano sonata in classical style. I like it very much but sometimes I wish the rendition (GPO Steinway) had some more fullness, eventhough I used maximum Reverb.

    I am in particular proud of this mysterious calm passage at 2:12 in the otherwise rather wild development section and the slow melancholic ending...

    Very nicely done, Gerd!

    And quite an undertaking, if this first movement
    indicates the scope of the work, overall.

    Gerd, this sounds to me like you may be using
    two instances of the piano, differently panned?

    My best,

    Hi Gerd,

    Fantastic writing. You've crafted a superbly beautifully piece with lovely contrasting dynamics. Its simple elegance, with the full chords sparingly placed through the piece and the interplay between hands make it wonderful to listen to!

    I agree: that quiet section is wonderfully mysterious.

    Good work!

    Best,
    Reegs

    A well thought out classical-romantic piano piece.

    It's well done and has good dynamics.

    It sounds like you will want the Garritan Steinway Piano. I have a dedicated piano library and there is a big difference in presence.

    This is a very impressive piece.

    I look forward to the other movements.

    Well done

    Sehr gut, Herr Prengel. I like your piano work.

    Your "left hand" seems "detached" from the "right hand". If you are using two simultaneous instances of the Steinway piano, I would pan both "hands" closer together in the middle, perhaps with the "right hand" ten percent right of center and the "left hand" ten percent left of center. Detune one of the pianos by a tiny amount to prevent phasing problems.

    Keep up the good work.

    Regards,

    Hello again, gprengel

    Fantastic piece - Excellent!

    I see mention of the wide spread you have on the piano - You haven't replied yet, but I think the guys have it right, that you're using two instances of the piano and have panned them too far apart for realism.

    Thanks much for this!

    Randy B.

    Thank you all for your warm response of my sonata movement!
    I tried to consider your remarks on the panning problem. In some parts I think I could make an adjustment, but on other parts it didn't work out. Sometimes there is a panning which is independent of the panning controller. I use Finale and this sometimes seems to have errors which I can't figure out ...

    I hope to present you soon the other movements ...

    Gerd
