Aigle's performance

Post by Aigle on Thu Apr 09, 2009 5:48 pm

Hey guys. I have been practicing this piece and decided to tape it. I did some mistakes, but soon I will be uploading the ones that I know better, or maybe this one but improved. I really don't know the name of it so if you can name it please Very Happy Sorry about the poor quality but it is a combination of a synth and a bad camera

Smile not bad ^_^ If you used metronome and slowed it down a lot it would help SO much, right now it's about at a 60 level, with a slower tempo and evenness you could boost it up to 80/100

Hopefully that feedback helps! Very Happy

Nice Smile You are on your way Smile
Yeah, it needs as Andrew say a bit of time with the metronome Smile
But it sounds like a nice piece. Not sure about the name...
Good Luck on the further practice Smile

Well... I have to be honest on this one!! Dont get scared, but I cant feel anything! I know its a keyboard, but still I have to say you rush way to much! This is perhaps the most beautiful and emotional piece ever written, so you have to put your hart and soul into every single little note that is written! Smile

Sorry, might seem a bit hard?? But I think you wont evolve as a pianist if you dont hear the truth! Try and listen to some performances of this piece by professionals, and listen how they pure their hart into every single note Smile

As Andrew told me once, when you have learned the notes, you have only done 20% of the job!
And I feel that you have to work alot more to get some of those 80%!

Create an interpretation, even if its on keyboard, you can still slur notes, play slower, smoother, try and create the illusion of dynamics, its actually possible Smile Good Luck, and Dont hate me Smile I only mean well Smile

Ok you have got to be honest. I find it hard to feel the music since I don't have dynamics control. I have seen Wagner's performance and I find it better than most of the pianist play it. I hope i will get keyboard with dynamics Very Happy . And I guess I will play smoother to get the clear sound on notes. Thanks for the honest comments Smile

Yeah Smile As you say its of course hard with a keyboard Smile But try to imagine it, belive that it is dynamics or else you might get into a pattern where you play without feeling the music, even when you get a dynamic-keyboard Smile But by all means, its was well technically executed, only thing I was talking about was the hart of this piece. Smile I really do love this piece Smile

I think the problem is that you're not really feeling the tempo, you have to hit the notes alittle harder on the first and third beat to make it sound more "alive" unless the piece says otherwise ofc

Thomandy, actually I do hear it louder when I feel it should be, but that is just in my head Very Happy I hope that I'm not crazy Razz

And I will try to feel the tempo, will be posting Sarabande so you will see if there are problems there Wink
