    Default My recital: Appassionata, Ballades No.1 and 4, La Campanella

    Hi everybody!

    I recently gave a recital where I played Beethoven Appassionata Mov. 1, Chopin Ballade No. 1 and No. 4 and Liszt La campanella as an encore. I have put the recording on youtube:

    I'm curious what you think about it. Oh, and please forgive me for the occasional mistakes!

    Hello hummel ... welcome to Talk Classical.
    Nice recital - and nicely performed ... the fine tuning comes with time. Even Horowitz made occasional mistakes . Nice that you got to perform on a great piano, too.

    Keep up the great work -

    An interesting recital. Congratulations for it.

    I suggest you to visit The Guardian's blog, where you can download Andras Schiff lectures on Beethoven's piano sonatas (from the Wigmore Hall, i think). He does an excellent job on the #23.

    I think you should keep the tempo stable in the section shown in my first attachment.

    And the section in the second image I attach should be played all as pp without any rit: from the Eb to the Ab without any pause or tempo change.
