I couldn't have spent my time doing anything better than watching and reading this topic, although I didn't read absolutely every post.

Amazing performances can be accomplished by anyone with lots of practice and dedication; but amazing performances fulfilled in less than a year and with such great reputation is more than only much practice and dedication, it's a gift. Gifted hands, Thomas, you might not have the best voice, but your fingers ''sound'' way better than many voices I've heard.

I'm truly amazed and inspired by your playing; like Andrew said on one of his posts, you're going to be very famous one day, or better, you're on the way to being world-widely known. I'm proud of your work. (:

No, your accent's nice. (: I meant when you played around on one of your videos trying to sing and then said: ''that's why I chose to play piano and not sing'', or something like that. Razz


That was a very pleasant video, I needed to listen to something relaxing, you just saved me from suicide. lol I'm just kidding, but it released me from some of my tension.

I don't even have to say it was really well played, I'm sure you're aware of that. (;

Nina's Flute - Original



This Composition was created this summer. I asked Nina Perlove(Link to her channel further down) if she where interested to play a piece on the flute, if I where to compose one, and she said yes! So thanks to here for giving me this opportunity!

Also a special thanks to Philip Wilcher for giving me feedback during the process as well! Smile

Ninaflute's Channel:
http://www.youtube.com/user/ninaflute

The Piece:
I tried to create a lyrical piece, with different focus on pattern and harmony in the piano part, than what Im used to perhaps.. I also tried to create some counterpoint, in the middle section. The flute later repeats a variation of the piano part as well in this section. Im not sure what more to say, but I hope you like it, and go visit http://www.youtube.com/user/ninaflute to listen to some more flute! Smile





Ps: I managed to write wrong notes in 3 bars, you might hear it at 2:20 - 2:25,,,
Thought Id let you guys know. The notes should be One Single Note up the Scale! Sad ..my bad!

What can I say, you're freakin' amazing, Thomas. As to your little miswritten notes there, you shouldn't worry about those, besides every good composer makes mistakes, nothing to be ashamed of at all.

I really like how the transverse flute sounds with the piano, they really go good together. My best friend plays the flute and she can play about anything by ear, so whenever I'm at her house I have to ask her to play something and it's just incredible and beautiful.

I haven't had all that much time to watch your other videos on youtube, but I'll save some time to do so this weekend.

Yes, I'll always be very proud of your work. (;

You should experience bragging yourself a little bit more, Thomas. Razz At least you're aware of your ''errors''; yes, you should avoid them, but those mistakes makes you human, and a little lazy too, lol, but you rock either way. Wink

I see you've been busy, 3-4 months since the last video was posted geek

Impressive sonata playing there, looked like two spiders have a conversation with eachother. Who knows what Mozart was thinking about when he composed this, but it was probably spiders Razz

Chopin Prelude in Eminor Op28 No4



About the Video: This famous prelude in E minor is among my favorite pieces in this genre. And this is my first recording of it. I think I will try to record it at least one more time for Youtube with my regular piano sound - This is Grand2, and I do think it fits this piece better than my regular sound(piano1)...

Im almost very happy with this recording:) hehe - but yes, I think I manage to do it some justice, but still I feel there are minor parts here and there, that I should have played differently and/or better. Thats also one of the reasons I feel I need to record it at least one more time, later on.

Hello!

Good job! But still a lot of work to do on this one. Classical music is tough...

Now I know it is very tempting to do a lot of rubato in this piece because it seems immediately very emotional when one plays it. But you should think about when and how to do it. There is a major problem in big tempo variations in this piece: the melody is doing very long bows, which could be broken or interrupted by the rubato if you don't take care. Chopin repeatedly said that this was the worst thing that could happen to his music; let's not be so dramatic, but nevertheless, you should play it with this fact in mind. You accelerate and slow down on every single measure, which makes it sound like many little sighs, and not one big cry of pain.

For now, your harmonic understanding is far better than the melodic one. This particular prelude is very subtle as far as melody goes, and for example the short section with the solo voice (measure 12) should really flow like a single line (you interrupt it after the "g" and after the high "d", which sounds a bit random; try to use the indications of the score: Chopin places his accent on "c", the dominant 9th, and his accents reportedly mean that the note should be more intensive (not necessarily louder, but maybe a bit longer): by changing the articulation you steal the tension and the phrase loses intensity).

On measure 19 - 20 you slow down too soon, Chopin writes "smorz" only at the end of bar 21, and I do believe that you should save it for the end Wink Trust Chopin!

If you want to really improve your understanding of the piece, however, I recommend you highly to find an acoustic piano to practice on, and to record it on.

Keep up the good work! Wink

Hi, thanks for the feedback! I have listened to many recordings of this piece, and it varies a lot actually. Would you recomend one for me that you feel show what you talk about? I do understand what you mean, but its even better if there is a "answer" to listen to! Smile

Nice of you to give me such feedback, and I will take it with me!

Liszt Moments Musicaux D.01, Allegretto



Very little known piece by Liszt. I did want to try something new, and different so I decided to find a piece I had not seen here on youtube. Then I got the chance to interpret it without any pre-knowledge. Trusting my self and the sheets. It was Hard, and I did do a couple of mistakes, but I think its hard or anyone who dont know the piece very well to notice them... hopefully Smile

I think as many other pieces by Liszt, this offers some rhythmical changes, some explosiveness and strange dissonant harmonies. Still I hope you like it! Smile

One other thing, I think Im not playing the octaves and the chromatic scaled parts fast enough, but Ill keep working on that Smile

That was interesting. Has to be a great feeling to play something you dont really know how "should" sound.

I did notice some key you bumped into, but as you say, it's hard. To me it seems hard, all these huge jumps and huge dynamic jumps. I think it sounded quite good tho.

I can't find anything about this piece... Are you sure it is by Liszt and it is the correct title? Where did you find it?

Yes, but Im not sure if I interpret it correctly Wink

I think its not the correct title. A friend of my pointed out that Liszt didnt have anything in this title..
What did you think of the piece? Its a bit unusual by liszt I guess, but he is crazy in some of his compositions if Im not mistaken??

I think that it belongs to the contemplative, philosophical pieces of Liszt. Liszt wasn't crazy, but he wrote some very experimental pieces. They are very hard to play as one easily gets lost in their structure, and they seem to go nowhere. I'd really like to see the score of this one! Can you provide a link to it? Or maybe some other informations? Yesterday I was giving a lesson about Liszt's 6th consolation; my student had problems similar to the ones that seem to occur in this piece. I think I might help improving the interpretation of it! Smile

Thanks for believing in me - But look at the date It was posted Victore! Smile Glad you liked it though!

Yes, I know he wasnt crazy, besides for women after what I have read Smile But Im sorry, I cant provide sheets, since its me improvising with some Lisztish things put into the mix, it was on 1 April, so it was my way of create an April fools video on my channel. Sorry if i misled you! But I had to follow up on the comment you made, and I see you answer a week later, so it was hard to spot the date And think of it as a 1.April Joke!

Hope your student manages though!Smile Liszt Consolations are very beautiful ended!

Oh, I didnt spot that, but after i listened to this, I actually listened to some other Liszt stuff, and I could hear some similarities, so I see where the inspiration came from ^_^

Nice improvisation tho Smile
