Recital recording

If you missed my recital concert last weekend, or were disappointed by the quality of the live stream (sorry about that! there were last minute technical hitches that meant I had to use the built in mic and video of my laptop) there’s good news!

The HD fancy camera I set up did work!

Here’s the first I played. I am accompanied by Ben Lathbury on the lush Steinway Fancy D piano (from 1876). The piano is triple strung for another octave and has a tonne and a half less tension on the strings. I love it.

There is a spoken introduction to the performance and the music begins at 4 minutes 20 seconds.
Cello Sonata C. Debussy (1862-1918)
i.               Prologue: Lent, sostenuto e molto risoluto
ii.              Sérénade: Modérément animé
iii.            Final: Animé, léger et nerveux
