Topic: Mozart on the Steinway

    Mozart on the Steinway

    This is my first ever post to the listening board, and as I am so impressed by the Steinway's capabilities I thought I had to share this - especially as I've yet to be convinced by a library playing Mozart.

    This is the 1st movement of the Piano Sonata in Eb K.282 recorded from the classical perspective.

    Well done!

    The old masters do sound so nice on this instrument, don't they. And your playing is so Mozartian. Wolfgang would be proud of you.

    Give us more, please and thanks for this jewel.

    Very well done, Buck. I enjoyed your tenderly
    wrought interpretation of this Mozart gem...
    this really shines on the G.Steinway -- fine
    depth and presence to it.

    Welcome aboard!

    All my best,

    Congratulations on a stylish performance of this lovely movement. Your sense of line is excellent and the ornaments were clear and unfussy. Also you got a nice classical sound from the Steinway, which suits Mozart - so full marks here!

    Well done! Unfortunately my computer is acting up (probably the browser) and there was this ringing sound on most of the high notes but I kept with it - Well played!

    I played (at least, I thought I played) Mozart in high school. In college, however, I learned how to 'interpret' Mozart, which goes so far beyond learning the notes. You have that down, Buck. Awesome playing!

    Mozart is the absolute KING of understatement!

    BTW, what type of keyboard controller do you use? Just curious.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Beautifully played and a treat for me to hear today. Thanks for sharing this with us more digitally challenged (that's digits as in fingers)
    I can't help wondering what this would sound like with a little less reverb though. I have just been reading the manual again (gasp!) and if I understand correctly,when using some of the more distant microphone positions, such as classic and stage-side, it might be effective to leave the ambience turned off and hear the sampled piano as it was recorded in the great Troy Savings Bank Music Hall. I believe I will give that a go next time I use the classic perspective. Regards, John (bigears)
