On this page, you can follow the development of Brent Hugh's upcoming piano concert, listening to early, sketchy, rehearsal recordings all the way through the actual concert as performed live, and, finally, polished studio recordings of each movement. Visitors are invited to participate in the development of the concert by making comments and rating the various performances.
The Recital, version 2.0.1
You can listen to each individual piece:|
"Prélude" from Pour le piano
"Pagodes" from Estampes,
I. Cloches à travers les feuilles
II. Et la lune descend sur le temple qui fut
III. Poissons d'or
|or, the whole thing|
These RealAudio files work great with 14.4 modems! Just press [Pause], wait 5 minutes, then press [Play]. Presto! no more stuttering playback.
The rehearsal recordings will be updated every few days until the live recitals begin. Various live performances of the recital will be uploaded starting in February 1998 and more polished studio recordings of the movements will gradually be uploaded after that.
Current recording status: Version 2.0.1. Recorded in rehearsal 24 January 1998 in my studio, Raytown, Missouri.
If you don't have RealAudio Player installed, it is a relatively small download (~750K), installs itself with a minimum of fuss, and best of all--it's free. Best download you'll make this month.
Coming soon:Recital, Version 2.0.2 plus multimedia program notes and more . . .
