David Nevue Q&A at the PianoWorld Forum...

Hi everyone,

I've been participating in a very enjoyable Q&A about my music in the PianoWorld music forums. For those of you interested in an inside look at my creative process, check it out. The link is as follows....

http://www.pianoworld.com/ubb/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?/topic/32/2574.html

Any guess what this is?

This is the house I grew up in. My earliest memories are still inside. The house/yard has been taken over with weeds and blackberry bushes now. When I lived there, the house was in a big open field and I had a LOT of room to play in.

Time moves on, doesn't it?

Cheers!

In the forum, I love the part:

"My wife tells me my pedaling technique is pitiful. I'm sure it is. But then, I pedal how I pedal. It's what makes me unique.
I'm sure my fingering is atrocious, but it works for me.
I know my posture is ridiculous. You should see it. If I wasn't so serious when I play, it would be comical."

It reminds me a friend of mine who plays very good piano saying that my fingering is very bad and for one of my songs say that I can not do that because it is not how it is teached.
Yes, I can !! It is how I can play and it is the only logical fingering I have found for my self.

So for your fingering and your pedaling technique, I can say that is how your sound is unique.
In my car, I have Overcome and one CD of George Winston, and when my wife wants to listen to piano, she always ask for the "soft and sweet sound" and not the "hard" one.
For her, George Winston presses the key too loud and it sounds a little bit too hard with a lot of resonance.

When I read that I was thinking about the song The Amazing Accordion man. I dunno why but that is the song that popped into my head when hearing about pedaling techniques. I don't know much about fingering standards or anything, and when I'm at the piano I just sit there, trying my best not to move around too much. So I basically look like a statue. I could be playing the fastest song in the world, still trying to stay still. But I've seen people standing up, moving around, bending over, and stuff. Is that really looked at as bad posture? I guess for classically trained pianists it would be.

By the way, David.
Any news about the possibility to sell a DVD of your performance from some time ago ?

I've just stumbled upon your site for the first time - in search of some GOOD sheet music.
I'm 21 years old and have been playing for most of them. Recently though, time has become a problem since I'm studying Engineering.
I just want to tell you - that I will definitely be looking out for your CD's and sheetmusic.. that I'm sitting with tears in my eyes, listening to your wonderful wonderful.. inspiring music.. I won't ever neglect my piano again.
Thank you. It is great to know there is still such BEAUTIFUL music being composed by great pianists.
