1. I am lucky enough to work at radio station with some nice Steinway pianos, as a training exercise with my Glidetrack shooter [75 cm] and some lighting gels I decided to film this baby grand. I used Canon 60D shooting 1920X1080 at 25P with Canon 28mm f1.8, 100mm f2 and Tokina 11-16 mm f 2.8 lenses as a well as the 28-135 f3.5-5.6. I think like all tools the Glidetrack needs practice to achieve smooth flows. I was exited by the prospect of putting it on the Tripod and making almost vertical sweeps. I think these are the best shots. Ooooops! Almost forgot that I also used a Panasonic HVX 200 [ another camera I am training on]. edited on FCP with some colour correction and speed changes.

  2. I recorded 'Un Sospiro' at Alberts Studios in Neutral Bay, Sydney. I find it so relaxing, and hope it has the same effect on you.

    The excellent camera work was done by Kien Luu of Dope Source Media. Reyne House of Alberts Studios was my Sound Engineer.

    Thanks for watching.

  3. Virtuoso Pianist Andy Quin plays his composition Toccata No.1 in C on the Amazing Estonia 9' Concert Grand. This wonderful instrument was handmade for Andy at the Estonia piano factory in Tallinn and ranks amongst the finest and most beautiful pianos in the world.
    Toccata No.1 was written whilst Andy was still a schoolboy and given its first public performance in 1976. At one level the piece is ' A simple expression of the joy of my being able to hear' ( concert program note from 1982). However at the time it was written, the composer was very interested in sound reflections, and the way in which sound vibrations are modified into the perception of music by the ear and brain . Thus Toccata starts with a right hand motif exactly mirrored in the left hand, but as the music progresses, the right hand pattern remains broadly the same representing the external sound, whilst the left hand gradually modifies representing the human perception of music.
    The sound of Andy's beautiful, emotive piano can now be heard on film and TV productions throughout the world, for example on this recent TV appeal by the Centrepoint charity for the young and homeless;

    Toccata No.1 in C will shortly be released on the Academy Recordings label and the piano score will also be made available. Please see http://www.andyquin.com/ for news and details. Email Andy at info@andyquin.co.uk

    The film was made by Arkippus films Dir. Joseph Landreth-Smith.

  5. Alessio Nanni, italian classical pianist, performs the Scherzo in b minor op.20 nr.1 by Fryderyk Chopin.

    This first Scherzo takes A-B-A-Coda form and begins with two chords in fortissimo. At tremendous speed, a series of dramatic outbursts in the B minor tonic follows. Near the center of the piece, the music leads into a slower section in B major; finally one hears a tangible melody in the middle register, surrounded by accompaniment in both the left and upper right hands. Chopin clearly quotes in this section of the composition from an old Polish Christmas song (Lulajże Jezuniu); tempo is marked as Molto Piu Lento. The B major area dissolves as the harmony mysteriously changes character via secondary dominant. The two chords from the very start reappear, superimposed over vestiges of the middle section. Then the beginning presto repeats itself in the familiar minor tonic.
    The lead-in to the dramatic, virtuosic coda is similar to the approach toward the Molto Piu Lento, but slightly different (as it is with Chopin's Second and Third Scherzi also). This final section incorporates dizzying arpeggiated flights up and down almost the entire keyboard, suspended by a climactic series of nine ten-note chords (E# diminished seventh (with diminished third), augmented sixth chord in root position, secondary leading-tone chord of tonic B). After the resolution and a rapid chromatic ascent over four octaves in both hands, the coda and piece come to a triumphant end via a bold minor plagal cadence.
