The “recordings” on this page are by-products of the score editing process on a PC. The engraver software reads the entered notes and passes them through the PC’s MIDI interface to a set of piano modules that converts them a digital piano sounds. Only very basic tempo directions are followed and all pianos (there are up to five involved) are played with a constant key velocity. Percussion is omitted and tremolos are played as straight notes. Occasionally, a trill is realized. The result is totally non-artistic and computer-like but it may serve to give a general impression of the pieces involved.
Edition Nordstern primarily uses these sound images to spot wrong notes in scores. Of course, for this purpose the scores are played at a lower tempo.
For all of you who are interested in our editions these “recordings” are meant to gratify your curiosity.
