Poil de carrotte

May 3, 2009 - played for Poil de carotte ("Carrot Top"), the 1925 silent directed by Julien Duvivier. I recorded my blog entry as a blogcast/podcast on my digital recorder while walking home from MoMA after the show (so that's why I sound a little out of breath), rather than come home and do a lot of typing.

Below are my blog podcast and the first 6 or 7 mins of my performance. Not exactly going to give Paderewski a run for his money (note clam hit in first bar or so), but here it is "hot off the presses" nonetheless. Tomorrow's repeat will go better.

Score recording (pauses heard are for live, spoken translation of intertitles, which didn't get picked up by my mike)

The DVD, released by Lobster in Europe (and rentable from Facets here), includes a spoken intro by Serge Bromberg (don't break your mouse clicking on the image below...it's just a screen-grab):
