Txs Mahlzeit and Monica for putting this whole recital together and Mahlzeit, the streaming player was fantastic because now I'm able to listen to the music continuously during my lunch hour at work.

A few of my friends stopped by last night while I had the streaming player going on my PC. They asked that's really nice music, what CD is that? I said, ummm, it's not CD but rather a bunch of amatuer adults getting together quarterly and playing for each other. Their jaws just dropped and was very impressed by the amount of talent shown that they stayed to listen to everyone's performance. So give yourselves a pat on the back for the remarkable performance smile

Here are my comments on the first 9 performances:

#2 EPF: What a lovely classical piece and very well played. Thank you for the introduction to Handel's watermusic.

#3 VAN: Thank you for the dedication. The title of the piece is very fitting and this is such a beautiful composition.

#4 Theowne Another beautiful composition very dreamy like. Sounds very much like what Debussy would have composed. Your playing was also impeccable.

#5 Dannylux/Mel: Beautiful and Flawless playing to a charming piece. I had enjoyed it very much.

#6 ERIN_J: That was excellent playing. I love the melody of the piece as well.

#7 Super-Hunky: I was sooo looking forward to hearing you play this piece. You played it beautifully and certainly have captured the mood of the piece. I did not hear any lack of confidence to your playing and your improvisation blended in very very nicely. Bravo!!

#8 Monica: Another beautiful performance. You had captured the expressions and feelings of the piece very well.

#9 Sideshow: Wow, I love the finger work. You sounded like you had lots of fun playing this piece.

#10 Serge 88: This is my favorite Beethoven piece. Your tempo was very fitting for the piece. I also loved the emotions and feelings you had put into the piece. Bravo!

Theowne- wow, what to say? If you had told me that was an early Debussy piece I would have believed you. And so beautifully played. You swear you have only been playing two years? laugh I think you are on the road to being a fantastic pianist.

Kwaigirl- Nice piece and well played. I especially love the beginning. Sounds like a tough technical piece.

Dannylux/Mel- Now THAT's a waltz! Very cool. I see what you mean about the beat. In some places it's kind of tough to figure out what's happening. In those places it seems like it would be tough one to dance to. smile You didn't seem to have any trouble handling it. Really well played. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

SH-- I even like the name of this one. Super nice nice piece. You piqued my curiosity and I would love to know what you improvisised on and what is written.

Monica-- Another beauty. It really sounds like it could have words to it. Tracy Chapman maybe? It's just gorgeous. And of course you play it like it's yours. smile

#11 Schubertian: fantastic playing! Great control shown. I loved it smile

#12 Rocky: You're another one that I look forward to listening to. What a beautitful piece and you had played it wonderfully well. thumb

#13 Peyton: Great rubato playing. This was a very enoyable performance for me. Thank you for sharing smile

#14 Adagio-Michele: I don't know this piece, but the piece was very soothing and tranquille. Beautiful performance.

#15 I played it better at home: Your playing sounded wonderful to me. A very pretty piece.

#16 Rustyfingers: Nice ragtime piece. Great tempo and control of the piece. Fantastic performance.

#17 Jotour: What a delightful swingy piece. I had tremendously enjoyed your performance. I just wanted to get up and dance smile

#18 Silla: Okay, when I got to your performance, the streaming player just got stuck on your piece, meaning I just played it over many times. You had created such gentleness to the music and was so beautifully played. Even though you said this was a voice accompaniment, it could very well pass off as a piano solo.

#19 funburger: I can tell that you had alot of fun playing this piece smile I can ust imagine your fingers go!! You rock girl!!

#20 Lisztaddict: You're such a great pianist. You make everything sound so easy and effortless when in fact it's not. Very enjoyable and thank you.

This is my first batch of comments. So far, everyone sounds like a pro to me!

Thanks to Monica for handling the recital again. Thanks to LaValse for hosting the zip files. And thanks to Mahlzeit for the Response Template.

01. Kawaigirl1 - Nature's Fury
You captivated me immediately during the fast runs in the opening. The fury continued throughout the entire piece. The fast runs in the 2nd third were just awesome. It’s not just your wonderful technique but your beautiful expression that makes you one of my fav pianist on this forum. This is just an breathtaking performance and what a way to kick off the recital!

02. epf - Air from Water Music
I really like Handel’s music. You performed the piece in a very stately and very sweet way - although it sounds like contradictory descriptions, that’s what comes to mind. Very pretty.

03. Van - Emptiness
Wow Van, I didn’t realize you’ve only played for a bit over a year. That’s incredible. As I’ve mentioned before, this piece really conveyed the feeling that you intended - loneliness, emptiness. Thanks for sharing a very personal piece.

04. Theowne - Prelude - "Jour de pluie sur les landes" - (Rainy Day
on the Moors)

Theowne, I am floored, speechless, in awe... That was a masterpiece that would make Debussy proud! I can hear the rain, strong at times, light at other times and the moodiness of the moors. I also liked how sometimes the left hand created the dominant sound at various points. And my, when I looked the score, I can see the work it must have taken to put it all down. And 3/4, 5/4, 2/4 - wow. I don’t think I can even play that, not to mention composing it. And I managed to say a lot for being speechless smile

05. Dannylux/Mel - Valse chevaleresque, Op.96c
This piece is wacko, playful, unconventional and delightful. Your performance brought out all these elements with your own personal touch. And the ending was very grand. It’s great that you always find something unusual for us at each recital.

06. Erin_J - The Stranger
Erin, OK, I will be gentle with my comments. YOU ARE AWESOME! It’s not possible that you have only played for 4 weeks. If this is not talent, I don’t know what is. The expressiveness, the clean nice touch, and a solidly long piece too. You are our rising star.

07. Mr_Super-Hunky - Path of Repentance
Well Mr SH, you did it again. Very nicely played. I didn’t hear any “lack of confidence” and anything that made it sound like you’re not
fully in control of the playing.

To be continued...

Oh wow - thankyou everyone for your comments! Everyone is so encouraging and supportive. I was very nervous about submitting a piece but you have all made it very worthwhile.

I have listened to the recital and I'm not knowledgeable enough to comment on individual pieces - but I really loved everyone's pieces. It's fabulous to listen to what can be achieved in a relatively short amount of time.

Thanks so much for this experience everyone!

57 - Triryche - Good job. Very nice to listen to.

58 - dk21208 - How fun! I love it.

21. Lisztener - II Danza de la moza donosa

Very well done I'm very impressed by the way you can play one hand soft and one hand loud over it!! That is extremely hard.

22. Seaside_Lee - Night & Day - Seaside Style!

You keep amazing me playing by ear and yet not sounding like it's chords versus a melody. Before I know this forum I wouldn't believe this was possible.

23. mahlzeit - Something in F

How do you come up with that! It must be so great having those melodies just bottled up in you and be able to play them whenever you like. Great job!

24. Ted Stanion - Prélude in F-sharp major, Op. 28, No. 13

I said it before and will again: anybody that can play anything from Chopin is a accomplished pianist in my book. I only play a very small amount of his repertoire (only the first note from every piece he has written wink ) I did enjoy this performance! The piano is not all that bad.

25. BB Player (Greg) - Nefeli

Very very smooth could be a professional recording as far as my ears can hear! Nice song also!

26. Mark... - AlfredMelody2

Well you know already wink

27. Copper - A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square

This is one of those songs you can hum along with without knowing the title/words or anything strange isn't it? Very nice work, like your list of all players that played this "and me" laugh

28. bluekeys - Serenade

Wow.. the bass on your piano is fantastic. Very nice playing also! I love this serenade definitely going on repeat a several times.

29. Honnli / Steven - To Zanarkand

Don't know what is more famous the music or the game but you play a stunning version of it! You put great emotion in there. And that after 4 years gives me hope!

30. Keith W - Bach Invention 1 in C Major

Well done.. after 5 months!!! You surely didn't pick a easy one to show off and than you pulled it off as well. Great job! Way better arpeggio then I can do!

11. Schubertian - Haydn Sonata #59, First Movement (Allegro)
If it made me play like you, I'd eat bananas by the boatload! The Haydn was wonderful.

12. rocky - No Holly For Miss Quinn
You can take the bag off now, Rocky, that was great. Very melodic, kind of emotional. I really enjoyed it.

13. Peyton - Chopin Waltz 69/1
I think I'm going to start a Peyton fan club. You are an incredibly versatile pianist (among your many talents). Great job on the Chopin.

14. AdagioM (Michele) - Serenade
Very moving rendition, Michele. Doesn't sound like you lost much by taking a break.

15. I played it better at home - Arietta
IPBAH, No cause for PRBs (post-recital blues) over this piece. I'd love to be able to play that well. Very clean.

16. rustyfingers - Bethena
Great job, Rusty. Joplin is always enjoyable, and challenging! BTW - I'm going to look at some Charles Walters tomorrow, so it was nice to hear one played well, even if thru a maze of audio and digital technology.

17. jotur - Cathy Turner - Kansas City
Very entertaining, Cathy! Nice to hear a good old-fashioned 12-bar shuffle amidst all this high brow classical stuff!

18. silla - Where He Leads Me
Very moving, silla. A beautiful melody, flawlessly executed. I love how it builds in power, then resolves in quiet calmness.

19. funburger - Bach: Toccata in Dminor
Interesting choice. Intense, yet, well, fun. I could not even imagine trying something that difficult, yet you made it sound easy. Great job!

20. LisztAddict - Song without Word - Op 19 No 1
A relaxing piece done with a quiet understated competence. I enjoyed it as much as your Schubert-Liszt. You have become one of my favorite players on this forum.

21. Lisztener - II Danza de la moza donosa
Lisztener, I don't envy your position between LisztAddict and Seaside_Lee, yet you more than held your own. Beautiful selection, executed skillfully.

22. Seaside_Lee - Night & Day - Seaside Style!
Always a pleasure to listen to you, Lee. Your creative energy is awe inspiring.

23. mahlzeit - Something in F
You are a man of many talents, Matthijs. That was quite beautiful, especially for an off-the-cuff composition. We all owe you one for the tech support on this. It's been an incredible success.

24. Ted Stanion - Prélude in F-sharp major, Op. 28, No. 13
Nicely played, Ted. I was not familiar with this piece (being a semi-literate rock and blues guy). Very enjoyable.

25. BB Player (Greg) - Nefeli (to do)
This is quickly becoming one of my favorite pieces. I've downloaded the music, now I just need the time and skill to play it. Your rendition was superb!

26. Mark... - AlfredMelody2
Great job, Mark. I'm listening to this for about the third time now, and the timing and dynamics are really done well. Even though these are "training pieces" it's clear you've taken the time to learn and perform them at a high level. I look forward to hearing you in future recitals.

27. Copper - A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square
Well done, Copper. A beautiful standard played in a simple yet moving rendition. Very enjoyable.

28. bluekeys - Serenade
Who let this guy in the recital? We need a bouncer!

29. Honnli / Steven - To Zanarkand
A superb rendition of what is becoming one of my favorites. You bring out the contrasts in the piece with power and skill. Very professional.

30. Keith W - Bach Invention 1 in C Major
Nicely done, Keith. This is on my list of pieces to learn. Hearing yours inspired me to move it up a tad. For 5 months, it's amazing!

How fun. I hope the ones you play are in better tune than mine is on this recording! Let us know how it goes.


If I had ever learnt, I should have been a great proficient.

Second post of comments,

11 — Schubertian — Haydn Sonata #59, First Movement (Allegro) — Haydn

Although I’m unfamiliar with this work, I highly commend you for your brilliant play. Your dynamics and technique are enviable. I imagine myself two centuries ago sitting amongst royals in a powdered wig, ruffled shirt and waistcoat occasionally nodding my ostentatious approval to a beautiful lady whose eyes just happened to meet mine at that moment in time. Thank you for the time travel and the beautifully played Haydn.

12 — rocky — No Holly for Miss Quinn — Enya & Nicky Ryan

Enya is fabulous. Your play makes me long to listen to her CDs, but that must wait. Now, I hear her vicariously through you capturing her beautiful voice with your beautiful play. Rocky, the simple player with the simply magnificent musical expression. Great combination. I find it difficult to leave.

13 — Peyton — Chopin Waltz 69/1 — Chopin

Peyton, this is such an expressively beautiful capture of Chopin. Your playing is so romantic that I imagine myself with the woman of my dreams flirting, touching then dancing to your melodious strain. Your play is near perfection and I’m sad to say to my dream that our dance must now come to an end…for a while, madam.

14 — AdagioM --Michele — Serenade — Gillock

Michele, this is so enchanting that it is almost painfully so. Your fingers sing such a beautiful melody that conjures thoughts of lost love along with an image of a beautiful face that is so close in the mind’s eye. Thank you for this beautiful gift.

15 — I played it better at home — Arietta — Gliere

IPIBAH, Gliere and Gillock must have been joined at the hip. Romantic enchantment abounds in this beautifully executed piece. I see myself in the polished surface of your piano keys. You have done the composer and yourself quite proud. This is lovely and memorable. I’ll play it often and bask in its beauty.

16 — rustyfingers — Bethena — Joplin

rustyfingers, I haven’t heard such a beautiful rag since the movie “The Sting”. I do believe that this is the most beautiful rag I’ve ever heard…surpassing that from The Sting. It sure is “A Concert Waltz” the way you so tenderly treat it. Your recording setup is perfect for the results achieved. What a delight. You know that your Dad is loving this.

17 — jotur - Cathy Turner — Leiber and Stoller

Rock on, Cathy! This certainly is a blues chaser and has a great rock and roll beat. I’ll bet you get many cheers and a lot of applause when you play songs of this genre. Wow, this has me shakin’ in my chair! You have a super sound, girl. Keep the hits coming.

18 — silla — Where He Leads Me — Paris

silla, I well remember how beautiful you played “How Beautiful” in the last recital. You chose a great piece then and now to display your excellent touch on the keyboard. Your playing is soul—provoking. You certainly do “embrace the space”, while so doing you surround us, and share your soul with us. Comforting, beautiful play.

19 — funburger — Toccata in Dminor — Bach

funburger, at the rate you are improving you’ll be playing Liszt’s Mephisto Waltz by the time the next recital is upon us. Your piano and mic setup are super. You sure are an adventurer into music and this is a wonderful example. Nicely done, I’ll stay up nights wondering what’s next from you. Bravo!

20 — LisztAddict — Song Without Words — Mendelssohn

LisztAddict, your dedication to producing only the highest quality performance is shining through once again with this piece. As you move up the ladder of difficulty, you have given us an insight into what we must prepare to do. You have done it. This is another sparkling virtuosic performance that has all the nuances of touch that make you the artist you are. This is truly a wonderful gift to us all.

Actually, it's a different kind of legato. laugh
For the most parts of the piece, it's romantic kind of legato (with pedal). For the few seconds you mentioned, it's legato without pedal; kind of like playing Bach.

I wish I had more time to listen, a few more comments:

04 Theowne: Undoubtly inspired by Debussy, but still very much your own, what to say ?, both the piece and the performance are outstanding ! Thankyou

06 Erin_J
What a nice little piece of music, played with such musicalty and confidence after 4 weeks ??

09 Sideshow
Very good playing, what a joy to listen to, thank you !

11 Schubertian:
You are one I'd like as a teacher, your finger control is admirable and you have found a gem of a Haydn movement that I have not heard before, but want to hear again. Very musical playing, makes me think you know Joseph personally wink

13: Peyton
You are so good, I am soooo envious laugh You've become even more classy and a little less jazzy, but without loosing the elegance and joy and entertaining factor, you're a great musician !

16 rustyfingers
What a lovely elegant piece of music and your sophisticated style suits it so well, I'd love to play this Joplin waltz once..

21 Lisztener
Always a pleasure to listen to you, again a wonderful choice of music and you are showing even more virtousity than I've heard before.

34 Frycek
Just lovely, you have such a fine elegant touch and your piano has this unique fragile sound, this performance really moved me

52: Nighteyes
Nice to see you here again, you have such talent, calm and beautiful playing, hard to believe that you have played for such short time.

etorrales (Beethoven's 2nd movement of Pathetique sonata) - I am very impressed by the control you have over this piece. The timing, the tone control, balance between hands, balance between melody and accompaniment, everything is just perfect and pleasantly smooth to the ears. There is just one tiny thing I found not on par with the rest of the piece is the ornament at 1:23.

How long have you been playing? What piano is in the recording?

Thank you for sharing this wonderful performance.

I'm sad I wasn't able to participate. But after listening to myself on playback , I was glad I didn't participate. :p Listening to all the great piano playing is both encouraging and discouraging. I think we know what I mean.

My memory of recital as a child, was dressing up in a ill fitting tux and bowtie, with flooding pants. I remember kids crying over the piano when they messed up, or running off stage in the middle of a piece.

Then I went to my wife's recital with all adults. All of them, stopped when they messed up, and anounced they were restarting. Some even put stickies on the keys.

Having said all that. I wanted to say, everyone did wonderful and sounded great! What a great group of people, who have come together to enjoy music and piano.

I will definitely add to the next recital, so that the Adult Beginners Forum, can keep the new blood flowing to keep the "Beginners" legitimate in the name. laugh At the same time if it was truly all beginners, we wouldn't be burning the CD and listening to it in the car.


Aloha!

I'm responding to part of this for etorrales since her computer is down. She recorded this on my PX-800 (I have the gear for recording and she doesn't and, as noted, her computer fried a power supply).
