RECORDING TIPS

Recording vs. concerts

When pianists give concerts they often have to adapt their dynamic range to project to the most distant listeners in the venue. Larger auditoriums sometimes require pianists to sacrifice quality of tone to produce sufficient sound.

In the recording environment, any level of playing volume can be captured and digitally maximised. This offers pianists the advantage of playing within an ideal dynamic range.

Scores

If you are playing music which is already scored, it is often useful bring a copy, even if you play from memory.

Listening

At the beginning of the recording session, we make test recordings. There no single best way to record pianists.

When listening back to test recordings, this is a good opportunity talk and to make adjustments.
