“Sweet Remembrance.”

This is Felix Mendelssohn’s first “Song Without Words” (Lieder Ohne Worte), Book I. It is Opus 19, No 1 — but the title, “Sweet Remembrance”, is not found in every compilation.

To those who might be interested, this performance was recorded on Steinway Model M, short stick, Blue Yeti stereo mic set at cardioid, using the PhotoBooth platform on Macbook Pro.

Chopin, Prelude No.4 in e minor.


Largo.  (*wear earphones, and adjust volume to minimize distortion — sorry!)

Ruth Ann Scanzillo, piano.

*Recorded at the ZOOM platform, as a test of the dynamic parameters.
