    Steinway D and Sonata Movement

    All:

    Most of your remember the Piano Sonata in F that I wrote in the
    style of Beethoven. This is the Second Movement using the
    new Steinway D.

    The last time it was at the Forum, the MIDI file was entered via
    "step time" and edited. This time, I played it in "live."

    My first recording with the Steinway D, but it is a magnificent
    instrument to play.

    If you care to, listen to it here:

    BRAVO!

    Jack,

    I loved this when I heard it previously; but
    to hear it like this... is a splendid moment
    for all of us.

    Thank you, Jack. And please, do allow us
    the pleasure and privilege of hearing the
    other movements, too!

    With admiration,

    Anytime you want to lay some more of this on us, be my guest.
    I really enjoyed this. John

    David:

    Thanks for the inspiring comments. The next time you
    hear this will be my TRIO arrangement of it using the
    Stradivari and Gofriller. I completely redid the trio
    arrangement. The instruments are so beautiful and if
    I can do them justice, I will be happy to post it.

    I love the Steinway so much, I'm doing new suff with it
    right now. Can't get enough playing with it. Sounds so much
    better when I play it than when I record it.

    Thanks again, David.

    John (BigEars):

    And thank you John for your kind words. I used the "classic" perspective
    and tried out the Ambience Reverb. Really like the way you use the new
    Steinway D. You get such a full, round sound in your recordings.

    Jack!

    Bravissimo!!
    What a lovely combination of a well structured composition, wonderful expressive playing and in the style of Beethoven!
    Even though it is 'in the style of...', it is without doubt wholly yours.

    Jack,

    Truly a triple threat: fine piece, fine performance, fine realization! Now, you just need a few minor finger-slips to make it even more realistic...

    A lovely piece, one that captures this style wonderfully well. The last section is a nice contrast without being so different as to feel foreign. It did feel to me that the original material might re-appear; just a thought.

    Really enjoyed this. Great work!

    Jack,

    This just gets better and better. BRAVO! Your playing and the sound of the Steinway are both magnificent.

    Thank you for posting this again. I must have missed it the first time around.

    Masterfully done, both in capturing the style and in the performance. I would also like to hear the other movements when you have a chance to post.
