Any recordings you have done that could be described as Classical, post in here.
Includes pieces one would only loosely call 'Classical' as they depart somewhat from what the composer intended.

Moonlight Sonata

The Piano Sonata No. 14 in C-sharp minor "Quasi una fantasia", Op. 27, No. 2, popularly known as the Moonlight Sonata, is a piano sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven and was completed in 1801
This was played as a straight piano solo without any pedals, just the two keyboards, given the structure of the bass notes within the piece. Not something I would normally do, but I think it works well in this case. I tried to emulate the rich deep notes of a piano using some vibrato on the lower keyboard. It is not an easy piece to play evenly on the organ!

Hi Charles,

I used to play this piece in my teens. Loved the harmonies formed by the notes played. It's one of those pieces where one could say, "I wouldn't change a single note of it".
