Hi! It's summer, so, on a whim, I googled 'summer piano solo site:imslp.org' and found this gem by piano merchant James Bellak (1813-?). It's quasi-sight-read (with editing), so please excuse the imperfections.

The background noise is an awesome SFX - I chose this time specifically so that I could capture the sound of a construction site. OK, so I didn't do it on purpose - I didn't expect the recorder would pick up the sound, for some reason - but I hope you'll enjoy it as if it were a cinematic effect anyway...

Very nice and relaxing. The contrast between the sweet, smooth piano and the incessant drilling is almost comical! I would move your microphone a little further away from the piano as the recording clips when you play loudly.

FlyingColours responds:

Thanks for the review and the recorder tip! I'll certainly do that next time. :)

I like it, but the sound in the background is new for me. Go on like this!

FlyingColours responds:

Haha, thanks! No idea how long the construction will last, but it just might be heard in future entries too... :P
