PLEASE DO NOT POST IN THIS THREAD! USE THE DISCUSSION THREAD(S).

I am delighted to introduce our 11th quarterly Adult Beginners' Forum Recital. So, pull up a chair and have a listen.

I would like to take this opportunity to ask the audience to please refrain from commentary in this recital room.

A separate room has been provided for the purposes of intermezzo discussion. Please take any and all comments to the General Discussion Room and all critical discussion to the Critical Discussion Room .

Thank you.

A template has been created for those who wish to provide individualized feedback:

Response Template

In addition to the zip files linked below, mahlzeit has added a feature to his program that creates an online streaming player. Just click on the link to hear all the recital pieces without having to download the zip files:

Online Streaming Player

For the convenience of forum members, mahlzeit's program has normalized the files for consistent volume and standardized the ID3 tags in a collection of zip files. This makes it easier to create personal CDs and playlists.

These zip files have been posted at the following URLs:

Recital 11 Zip File 1

Recital 11 Zip File 7


The zip files, along with past recitals, have also been uploaded to:

Let me express my greatest thanks to five very special people: mr_super-hunky for coming up with the idea of our online recitals, which have proven to be more successful than any of us ever dreamed; Bob Muir for working out the technical details of pulling together the recital and doing so tirelessly for the first six, count 'em, six, recitals; LaValse for hosting the zip files and recital software on his server; Copper for also hosting the zip files and trouble-shooting help; and last but not least, mahlzeit for writing the absolutely fantastic web-based recital program that we are using. THANK YOU MAHLZEIT!!! 2hearts

I hope you enjoy.

WHISTLING AWAY THE DARK

From "Darling Lili"
(Johnny Mercer / Henry Mancini)

Often I think this sad old world is whistling in the dark.
Just like a child, who, late from school walks bravely
Home through the park.

To keep their spirits soaring and keep the night at bay.
Neither quite knowing which way they are going, they sing
The shadows away,

Often I think my poor old heart has given up for good.
And then I see a brand new face, I glimpse some new
Neighborhood.

So walk me back home, my darling, tell me dreams really come true.
Whistling... whistling... here in the dark with you.

Often I think my poor old heart has given up for good.
And then I see a brand new face, I glimpse some new
Neighborhood.

So walk me back home, my darling, tell me dreams really come true.
Whistling... whistling... here in the dark with you. </td></tr></tbody></table>

Flying fingers all the way through, gigantic 4-octave scale prestissimo at the end, it is great! It is so fun to play fast. And it is really impressive to watch somebody play it.

I first saw this piece performed by one of my teacher’s better middle-school students (perfectly, by the way). Last fall I asked my teacher if I could learn it, because it looked like fun. She hmmmed a while and said “the middle section is really hard” but she let me do it. The first assignment was to learn just the melody (first note of each triplet) of the middle section, which needs to be brought out. There are tricky rhythms, right hand octave jumps back and forth at high speed (at 0:18-0:35 and 1:44-2:01), lots of dynamic contrast, and plenty of other fun stuff.

I learned this piece for my Guild audition in May. It was probably the hardest of the 10 pieces I did, and I know it needs to be better. My teacher says I need another year of familiarity with it. I recorded all my pieces soon after the audition, and just now listened to the recording. I was surprised at how good it actually sounds. I know there are sloppy spots and a couple of big memory problems in this recording, and of course I messed up the end of the big scale, but I am pleased at how most of it sounds. So here you go—sort of premature but I hope you enjoy it. </td></tr></tbody></table>

While this is not a technically demanding piece, there are a few tricky sections that took me a while to get down; especially the 10 note spreads throughout the piece.

I did everything possible when composing this piece to represent the major musical influences of the composers/artists I follow.

You will hear many 10 note spreads throughout the piece such as used in some of David Lanzs scores. (Cristoforis dream). You will hear numerous minor note progressions like Ludovico Einaudi does as well as hearing a musical journey with many different stages and different melodies/ meanings such as done by Nobuo Uematsu in his final Fantasy piano collections.

I wanted this piece to sound like a musical journey that could even be used as a movie soundtrack in places in which the melodies would follow along with the story line.

I am only scratching the surface with trying to get these thoughts/melodies in my mind transferred onto the keys forming a complete piece. With practice and more time, I hope to continue with these original compositions as it was so much fun to do as well as extremelly rewarding when the piece is finally finished. I really DO love doing this!. </td></tr></tbody></table>

Regards, JF </td></tr></tbody></table>

If I could have but one place to live
a house at the end of the world.
And if I could have but one heart to give
that would be to you sweet girl.

And when all the world’s in darkness
but for one small patch of blue.
That’s where I shall build my house
and live with the love of you.

If I could have but one sound to hear
a sigh at the end of time.
If I could share but just one dream
that would be yours with mine.

And in the house of sighs and dreams
under that small patch of blue
at the end of the world when all has been said
I will dream in silence with you. </td></tr></tbody></table>

His Moderato in e flat minor is a dark, moody, lovely piece. The chief difficulty with this piece is that the melody is played by the fifth finger of the right hand, while the other fingers of the right hand play the accompaniment. This is a great piece for teaching the fingers to sing and to learn to play the spaces between the notes, where the very soul of the music lies. Hope you like it. </td></tr></tbody></table>
