The view from the studio, 28 January 2016.

It’s bright and sunny here in Central Pennsylvania, and Snowmageddon is clearly losing its grip on the terrain.  Something about the sparkle and trickle of melting snow makes Mozart piano music seem “just right” today, so I’m delighted to announce that I’ve uploaded my second demo recording: the first movement of Mozart’s Sonata in D for piano 4-hands.

(In case you’re keeping track: yes, I still have two hands.  In order to record this duet I set a metronome in GarageBand and recorded both “players” of this duet—first the Secondo, then the Primo.  Happily there’s not too much pedal work in the piece, and the tempo is constant throughout, so there was very little technical fiddling to do to get it together.)

I’ve added the track to the “Classical Piano” playlist on my Demo Recordings page, and it also appears below.  The second and third movements of the Sonata will follow within the next few weeks.  Enjoy!
