Hello! I am not an adult or a beginner, but Mountain Ash wanted me to post a report on my recent recital, so here it is! smile

I performed Schubert's Impromptu in F-minor on Sunday. I have a regional judged event called Adjudications coming up in 2 weeks, so this recital is basically a time for the students to perform their pieces before the actual event. My piece was so long (10 minutes) that my mom thought that I had messed up and started over. (not a good testimony to my phrasing skills :p )
The memory was untried, so I was mostly concentrating on just remembering the notes, and my performance was rather...well...flat? Just a but expressionless, I think. Oh well.
Now that I know that I have it memorized, I can work on the phrasing and things.

One frustrating thing is this:
There is a nice girl in my studio who decided that she is going to be competitive with me, so she choose a Schubert Impromptu from the SAME opus and in the SAME key to play against me in the competition. Very smooth. :rolleyes: So, that wasn't too fun for me.
But it doesn't bother me too too much, I guess.

So that is the report. Hope I do well in Adjudications!

Congratulations, Clara Schumann! Playing a ten minute piece at a judged recital would be enough to make me break out in hives!

I've never been to one of these things. Who was there in the audience? How long will it take you to find out the results?

Keeping my fingers crossed that at the very least you beat out the competitive colleague... laugh

Congrats! I'm half way through Schubert's Impromptu in C minor. So if I have it for the next recital (not rec #5) I'll record it.

Don't you think they're great, C. Schumman?

I think the one I'm studying represents a man talking with his alter ego, walking at night, a rainy night, to the graveyard to bury himself alive. But, actually... he would need help to do so... Oh, the piece ends up in a major tone, I'll find out what happens...! eek


And in my twisted face... there's not the slightest trace of anything that even hints at kindness...

Monica Kern, the recital was not judged. It is just a performance in preparation for the judged event in 2 weeks! smile

And AQP_87 I adore Schubert's Impromptus! It is difficult to have a favorite. I think all of his music is filled with such joy. smile

[hits hand on head] Yes, you DID say that very clearly. Sorry for being a doofus. In that case, let me wish you the best of luck in your upcoming competition. smile

This practice recital was a great idea, I think. As you pointed out, now you have the confidence of knowing that you can play it without memory lapses, and thus devote your energies to expression.

Don't take too much notice of the other girl, just focus on your own performance. I'm sure you'll do really well in two weeks time.

F minor, Op 142 No 1? or No 4?

Just concentrate on what you play and do your best, and don't worry about the other girl. Try to think of it as something fun to have a little competition within the studio. If you find it's fun, you will do better.

I'm pretty sure it's #1, she mentioned playing lots of arpeggios and that's the one that's full of them.
