Dear Mr Krueger
Your recordings are great. I've just listened to some pieces (some Brahms, Chopin and Rachmaninov)and I consider that both the interpretation and the quality of sound are among the best for this kind of media. I have bookmarked your site!
Thanks for providing us the possibility to (re-)discover many piano pieces!

Antwort an G. Kassen

Mit der rechten Maustaste und "speichern unter" bzw. "Save as" lassen sich die Midi Files downloaden.

Ihre eingespielten Pianostücke sind die besten, die ich bisher als Midi-Versionen gehört habe.
Lassen sie sich 'downloaden und wie?

Hello Bernd,
I came across your page through a link from my cousin's home page in Germany. It is terrific and quite a remarkable result on my computer through the medial player. Thank you for the experience & pleasure from us down under, namely Australia.

Hallo Bernd!
Wo findet man im Netz Hinweise zur Programmierung der MIDI Schnittstelle? Am besten in C++.

Merci beaucoup Matthias

Thank you so much for sharing your gifts and talent with all of us! I would request you consider American Charles Ives, in particular "The Alcotts" movement from his piano sonata No. 2 "Concord". I have written a play about the "last southern gentleman" who spent a lifetime trying to save his ancestral plantation home and am developing a web site to publicize the play. I would like to use two of your Chopin Preludes (No.s 8 & 9), with proper credit, of course, and a link to your site.

Hello and thank you
Your website was the first I came across from the warm heart of Africa when wanting to try out my new sound card; I was lucky; I particularly enjoyed Schumann's Opus 15 Scenes from Childhood. Having now seen what the rest of the world has to offer in midi files, I shall return to your site more often and look forward to the possible reinstatement of Chopin's piano concerto No.1 ?

These MIDI files are quite remarkable given the medium that you are working in. If you haven't already heard them on the Soundblaster Live with the ambiance set to 'arena' I suggest you do so. This is as close to a live piano recital as I've ever heard.

Herr Krueger
I found your site quite wonderful! Understandably some people will not appreciate the music without the subtle nuances that are evident in an actual live piano recital. That being said, I realize that to achieve those dynamics in this kind of a medium is extremely difficult and I applaud your efforts to bring classical piano music to this kind of site!

Answer to Mr. Quingge Shi

Usually I use 2 tracks: One for the right and one for the left hand. Only in special cases I use more tracks, for instance in Chopin's Prelude No. 8. The right hand plays the main melody as well as a accompaniment. The emphasis of the main figure is much easier done in a separate track.

Mr. Krueger,
I have visited your page
many times and find it very nice.But, I have
only one question:why 3 tracks(even more) showing after transcribing your pure piano solo MIDI-FILE ? It will be very good if the notation is similar with which I buy from shop. I think that Excellent pieces...particularly liked "3rd Moments Musicaux by Schubert" and "zwerge by griege"

vielen Dank für Deine lobenden Worte im Gästebuch der Weltzeituhr. Ich meine, Du machst auf andere Art und Weise ein tolles Angebot. Muß direkt überlegen, ob ich mir mal 'ne vernünftige Soundkarte zulege.

What a lot of work this must have taken, and I thank you for allowing me to enter and partake. The music is wonderful. Do you, by any chance, have "Rhapsody on a Theme of Pagianini" by Sergej Rachmaninoff. It is my favourite piece, and I'd love to put! it on my home page. If you do have it, would you share it? If not, thanks again for this wonderful visit. I'll stop by again. Moira

Dear visitor of my site,
as I have noticed, not all people are pleased by my work. I am concerned about this and want to remark the following:
I am creating my Midi-Files by step-sequencing and spend much time to adjust velocity, dynamics and te! mpo. However, it is not possible to reach dynamics and interpretation of CD-recordings or realtime-sequenced Midi-Files. For all that I try to create sequences that doesn't sound monotonous or synthetically. Several people have said, that I have done a good! work.
Chopin's piano concerto No. 1 was one of my first works and indeed not optimal, because in the beginning I had not much experience. Therefore I have removed it from my archive.
I want to emphasize, that I am neither a professional musician nor ! a pianist. It's my great love to classical music, which causes me to do this.
Your opinion about my sequences is very appreciated.

Dear Mr. Krueger,
I just visited your page
and was impressed at the projects you've undertaken. However, I have
several reservations about your sequences. I always bore a grudge
towa! rds you because you posted a sequence of the Chopin 1st piano
concerto which (I'm sorry to say) was suboptimal, with frequent wrong
notes (both in the orchestra and piano), incorrect tempo and
characteristically "unpianistic" step-sequencing. I thi! nk that in
general with the piano repertoire that you are tackling it's much better
to play them live (as with Oguri and Robert Finley), simply because you
cannot get all the "intensity" and pianistic figurations played
correctly, nor can you ge! t the required rubato and pedalling which
cannot be mimicked by step-sequencing. Even with your new piece, La
Campanella, and the Bach Well-Tempered Klavier preludes and fugues, the
virtuosity and notes are noth! ing if not played with some rubato, change
in volume, and correct articulation. (There is a sequence of the piece
played live on the CMC.) I'm sure that sequencing gives you great
pleasure (as it does for me), but I'm not so sure that all your
l! isteners agree.
I realize that the above are strong words, and hope that you will
compare your sequencing technique with those of Dr. Lubetsky and Robert
Finley, and aim to compare your sequences with what the music sounds
like when played live!

I am from Detroit, in the USA. My son is a classical pianist and is now learning about MIDI. He has been looking for the 3rd Moments Musicaux by Schubert, and you are one of a few to have posted this familiar piece. Your work is lovely, and w! e thank you very much.

Antwort an Lars Meinecke

Hallo Lars,
ich spiele meine Stücke überhaupt nicht ein, sondern editiere sie direkt im Midi-Sequenzer "Cakewalk pro Audio". Danach treibe ich allerdings erheblichen Aufwand, damit sie nicht synthetisch klingen - am meist! en arbeite ich an der Tempokurve. Cakewalk bietet die Möglichkeit, die Lautstärke der Töne sowie das Tempo graphisch zu bearbeiten. Die meisten Ersteller von Midi-Sequenzen scheuen diesen Aufwand und dementsprechend schlecht sind auch die Ergebnisse - oder ! sie sind hervorragende Pianisten und machen "realtime"-Aufnahmen, wie z.B. Robert Finley. Ich selber bin kein Pianist und möchte hochwertige Sequenzen auf diese Weise erstellen.

Bis dann

Endlich mal eine Site mit klassischen MIDI-Files, die - so mein erster Eindruck am PC - nicht so synthetisch klingen wie viele andere. Ich werde sie aber auch noch am Keyboard ausprobieren.
Meine Frage aber: Da Du ja wahrscheinlich (?) nicht! alle diese Stücke selbst am Keyboard fehlerfrei eingespielt hast... - welche Nachbearbeitungssoftware benutzt Du oder kannst Du empfehlen?
