The first time I looked at this piece I was totally intimidated by it. With the trill following the glissando, and a later section with seemingly impossible left hand. But after forcing myself to go through the piece, it’s actually not too bad. The only thing is that the quality of the playing seems to be directly proportional to the practice time, which I didn’t spend nearly enough. There’s a stupid mistake around 3/4 into the piece but it doesn’t sound too out of place so I’m going to let that go. Also, for some reason my iPhone couldn’t pick up the half-pedal at the very beginning. You guys will have to imagine it, or turn the volume higher.
After I recorded the complete Final Fantasy Piano Collections, I discovered the Final Fantasy “Piano Opera”. The “Piano Collections” appear to be so elementary compared to the “Piano Opera”. My next project is to record the complete Piano Opera. But this time I’ll take my time to make sure the pieces are more polished. I’m hoping to release one piece each week. Please stay tuned.
