  • lisa-spector: Welcome Steve!
  • jeisner1: Hi Lisa!!!
  • lisa-spector: Yeeaaahhh! Applause
  • lisa-spector: Virtuoso Etudes by Gershwin-Wild
  • lisa-spector: Will be coming next.
  • lisa-spector: Now playing Sketches Op. 15 by Mrs. H.H.A. Beach
  • lisa-spector: This sketch is 'Fire-Flies'
  • jeisner1: sound quality of piano is very good
  • lisa-spector: Can anyone comment for Lisa about how the sound is coming through?
  • Steve: Sounds great! You are well placed by the microphone while speaking.
  • Steve: And, you look beautiful, too!
  • lisa-spector: Thank you jeisner1 and Steve (blush).
  • David Sherman: The sound of the piano is only so-so for me. It is buzzing just a little in the high frequencies. I think it could be a little louder.
  • David Sherman: The voice is good. Everything could be a little louder.
  • Steve: BTW, why do you wear gloves?
  • lisa-spector: Thank you David.
  • David Sherman: To keep the fingers warm
  • Steve: I would enjoy a bit more of a close-up on the hands to see the amazing finger work.
  • lisa-spector: Thank you David. Yes, she keeps the circulation flowing and temperture changes, between playing and not playing effects her flow of the fingers.
  • lisa-spector: I see there is no spell checker here... excuse me.
  • Steve: If possible, please zoom in about 30%, focusing on the hands. I think you have plenty of room.
  • lisa-spector: Will try moving the camera closer after this piece.
  • jeisner1: applause!!!
  • Steve: Applause, too!
  • lisa-spector: Will bring a close up on this piece. Thank you for asking.
  • lisa-spector: There will be some jitters as the camera is released and moved in for the closer view. Hang onto your seats.
  • Steve: Thanks for coming close. Because the hands are so fast, the frame rate of the video can't keep up. So it's best to come in a bit tighter than original, but not too close. It's crucial to leave it on a tripod - even the smallest shake is very visible.
  • lisa-spector: Thank you Steve. Very helpful as we go through the learning process here.
  • lisa-spector: For all those viewing, please feel free to share Lisa's ConcertWindow channel with your friends. She would like to hear from you what you would like to hear in future concerts.
  • jeisner1: is there a way to share this after the fact?
  • lisa-spector: Yes, her channel will show this and previous concerts.
  • lisa-spector: For all who would like to know when her next concert is, and be able to make requests, log into ConcertWindow.com and 'follow' LisaSpector. You will then be notified of her next concert. You can also interact with her during the concert.
  • jeisner1: YAY!!!!!!!
  • David Sherman: Brava
  • David Sherman: Vice is fine. Piano buzzes a little. What resolution are you streaming at? 44.1 or 48? that might have something to do with it.
  • David Sherman: Voice, I mean
  • lisa-spector: Thank you David.
  • lisa-spector: Are you there Michael?
  • jeisner1: i like the idea of a virtual teacher...
  • lisa-spector: @jeisner1 Please feel free to inquire further with Lisa at pianist@lisaspector.com

      I was only able to see a short portion of Lisa Spector's concert because the time conflicted out here, and the introduction was totally garbled, probably because I didn't have it set up properly. But the little bit of her piano playing I heard was very good.

      Lisa put on a great concert. Without HD and broadcast bandwidth, webcasting will never do her skills and mastery justice. The audio was was above average but the video could not keep up. I was thrilled she played my favorite piece of American music and shared the event with 500 of my closest friends.
