    5 perspectives used to render Toccata Opus 82

    Hi, I have rendered forum member Andrea Maria Ottavin's Toccata with the Steinway standalone. This is a link to a folder containing all five of the perspectives. The piece is about one minute in length, and has some interesting dynamics and tempo changes. Anyone interested in how the different listening perspectives (microphone settings) sound on the same piece may wish to give a listen. How about some feedback for him on this composition? Thanks, John (bigears)

    (edit) the link to a single folder didn't work, so here are individual links.

    Hi John:

    Hope the back is feeling better........Glad that is over with.....lol

    I like the "Player" and "Classic" perspectives the best. They seem
    to emulate an "art form performance" a little better than the others.

    Great renditions, though.

    The piece is excellent! Now for the recording... er... actually they all sound pretty much the same to me. My hearing stinks. But "under the lid" was a nice sound.

    You have asked for some feedback for HIS piece? Andrea Maria Ottavin is a guy?

    Regardless, I like the piece. It has some great movement in it and as you said, nice dynamocs as well.

    It would not be easily played by a human, but the new Steinway has no problems at all.

    Hi Ron, I have only exchanged PM's with Andrea about the renderings. I am going by the picture (avatar) under his name, which is of a fellow at the keyboard. I think in European countries, names are less gender specific than they are here in the states. If I have blundered, I apologize.

    Sure I'm a guy..... And my surname is Ottavini, not Ottavin. Unfortunately when I registered the form cut the final i. Anyway...thanks for the comments on this piece. The piece is not easy for sure, but, usually, I play what I write for piano . Again, thank you all, in particular, special thanks to John who made the rendering. Excellent work.

    Regards,

    Andrea.

    Andrea

    I meant no disrespect, so please accept my apologies if I offended you. Here in The US, Both Andrea and Maria, would be names normally given to Girls.

    My middle name is Linn. Again in the US, Lynn is a name normally reserved for girls, so I had some taunting done by the other kids while I was growing up.

    No problem. I was joking. You hadn't to apologize. I know that in US you give names as Andrea and Maria to girls. Sometimes happens even in Italy that Andrea is used for boys and in rare cases for girls. You didn't disrespect at all.

    Best Regards from your italian friend,

    Andrea.

    Ah, just caught the other post on this... but had listened
    only to the Classic perspective.

    Interesting to hear something fairly brief like this, side by
    side, all the perspectives -- quite a difference amongst
    them!

    Once again, nice work, you two.

    My best,
