    Re: Brahms - Piano Concerto No 2 AUTHORIZED STEINWAY

    When I was growing up, we all had to know in our music classes who the 3 B's were. Today when I go into music classes and ask the students there to name any of them, and a few will know Bach and a few others Beethoven, but few know the great music of Brahms.

    I am curious how this was done. Did you do this note by note into a sequencer or is it from a midi?

    Regardless, great work and you picked a great day to present it. Got any Tchaikovsky to go along with it?

    Well done

    Bill:

    An awesome undertaking and a fantastic result.

    You are one courageous electronic musician. I applaud
    your tenaciousness and drive in completing such a
    hurculean task as this.

    Enjoyed hearing one of my favorite piano concertos. Love
    to hear it played when Claudio Abbado conducts the Berlin.

    BRAVO, Bill

    Bill,

    Might not get all the way through this movement this morning - but what I have heard so far is stunning. It's great to hear the details, and the piano really stands out. The GAS sounds absolutely wonderful - a tribute to to Gary and to you. This is an incredible amount of work, but you show what can be done with attention to everything in the score. You have helped raise the bar with this one.

    Great work!

    Bravo!

    A considerable undertaking -- with stunning results!

    I think I was about two minutes into this when I forgot
    I was listening to a mockup, swept along by a compelling
    interpretation that bespeaks a very fundamental under-
    standing, and love, of this Brahms masterpiece. It's an
    almost Classical viewpoint -- with which, contrary to too
    often wildly Romantic interpretations, I wholeheartedly
    agree. The writing expects it: clarity without sentimen-
    tality, letting the music speak with Brahms' own voice.

    Congratulations, Maestro, on a superb achievement.

    With admiration,

    Bill,

    I can only repeat what others have said: what a huge achievement!
    My ears tell me that there are one note mistakes at 00:47, 00:51, 00:56, 11:26, 11:33, 15:10 and 15:25 (+/- one second)...

    First - congrats on this huge task.

    With respect to your interpretation and rendering skills - the piano sounds light years ahead of the orchestra in realism terms. Which is not the be all to end all - but there is a disjunct there, and its highlighted by the nature of the concerto.

    I'd love to hear your recording of this with the forthcoming GPOA2 ( if I've got the name right) when it comes out. That may be an equal musical partnership.

    Bill:

    Forgot to ask you in my last post about this great project:

    What perspective did you use and any info on reverb would
    be helpful. Seems like a lot of folks are using different numbers
    and STILL achieving amazing results.

    Berg, Bartok and Boulez? OK, skip Boulez and put in Bernstein…. No? Certainly Berlioz needs to be in any list of “B”s. Maybe Barber or Brittan. Bartok, though, for sure… And Berg.

    Well, on second thought – How about The Beatles, The Band and the B-52s? Skip the B-52's and put in The Beach Boys? (keep it 60s)
