is coming soon to a computer near you.

Yes, on August 15, 2008 we will have our 11th World Famous ABF Online Recital.

Our dear Monica will be posting a thread requesting submissions of pieces (songs wink ) on August 1.

The deadline for sending in pieces is August 14, at 9:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time.

For our European friends, that's August 15 at 01:00 Greenwich Mean Time.

So how are your pieces coming along?

It's looking like my primary piece, Mischa Levitzki's Arabesque Valsante won't be ready, so I'm concentrating on Manuel Maria Ponce's Guateque and Vasily Kalinnikov's Moderato in e flat minor.

Right now I'm leaning more towards the joyful Guateque than the somber Moderato.

Please note that newcomers are especially invited to submit a piece.

And please don't be frightened into not submitting something by some of our more advanced pianists.

We LOVE to hear newcomers play.

Brilliant, looking forward to it.

Am in the middle of moving home, so won't be submitting anything until right near the deadline.

Wonder if we can beat the submission record?

I don't think my piece - James Horner's "The Portrait" (from the film Titanic) - will be ready either so I may fall back on something I've posted in the piano bars previously...

:PANIC:

You had to go there, didn’t you !!?? laugh

I doubt I will be ready in time,
I am working on Twinkle, Twinkle from David Nevue, figuring it would be appropriate as the 11th ABF is in mid August, approximately when the Perseid meteor shower peaks. Oh well, I may have to wait ‘til the 15th ABF.

Now to come up with a back-up plan!!

Summer holidays caught me here, so I won't be able to sumbit anything fresh and spectacular. I'm having something under my fingers for the recital - it is very often played, very weel known, yet very fascinating and difficult. Won't share what it is until the Hour of Truth laugh


Best wishes,
Mateusz

I contacted my tech weeks ago to arrange some voicing and a tuning and he said he'd get me on the schedule "soon." I may have to start battling the Red Dot without it.

Just a gentle warning about the deadline... the way mahlzeit's program works, I can't start any of the work on the recital without closing it, and once it's closed, no submissions can be added. Last time I had to give the unhappy news to someone who was ten minutes late that it just wasn't feasible to add them in. frown So why don't y'all pretend that the deadline is *really* 8:00 pm? laugh

Well folks, I think it may be time for me to participate in my first recital laugh

It'll be at right about my 3 month mark, I figure that's a good time to start.....have a piece I've been working on for a couple weeks, was going to record it and throw it in the piano bar but maybe I'll just hold off and save it for my first official (online) recital woo hoo!

I change my mind on a daily basis on what to play. This time, instead of hacking up someone elses music, I think I may submit an original piece which is something I have been working on.

This way, someone can take my piece and rearrange it and *I* will be the one asking "what the heck did you do to my song"!

I'm sure that whatever you come up with will be throughly listenable.

I think I will submit a Beatles song if I have time to learn it.

I'm going to try.......

I'm getting a Dampp-Chaser installed in two days, then I'm not supposed to have it tuned for a month after that (which will be after the recital submission due date), so I don't know how my grand piano is going to sound. I'll start practicing on my U1 Disklavier too.

I have to have something ready for a dance Aug 16 so I'll probably enter that. It's either that or something that's really old from my repertoire - it seems like it's only every other recital I can actually get something new ready.

Or - I guess I could post Baby Beluga in different keys - I was working on it for the Learn Away From the Piano thread and the result was that I could actually transpose it! Baby Beluga in the deep blue sea - (how come we don't have music note instant graemlins?) - yeah, that might work -

For a change I am prepared. smile Planning to do Mariage D'Amour by Senneville and Toussant (same one TrueBeginner did for this month's Piano Bar). If all goes well it will include a small improv at the end.

I'm coming for you, Red Dot! You can run, but you cannot hide! :p

I've been working on Bridge Over Troubled Water and it definitely is giving me trouble (sorry, I couln't resist). I start off nice and slow with the intro, but about half way through it starts taking off like a freight train. I can't seem to reign it in. It gets louder and louder and faster and faster. Just like "lions and tigers and bears, oh my....." By the time I've finished the last chord I feel like I've played a tune Baron Von Frankenstein would have been proud of. A bit of this, and a bit of that all sutured together to form a nameless monster. I'll give it some more time and try to smooth it out or else I'll serve it up to the Bergermeister and the crazed villagers.

Just came back from vacation yesterday, and see that the recital is a month from now... Don't have anything ready; I am kind of tired of running a romantic marathon though, maybe I'll do something classical for a change... Mozart..? Suggestions, anybody?

I'll be entering my first improv. Although I know nothing about the proper construction of improv pieces, I'm using the "hunt and peck" method to put together a "pop" song that really caught my fancy. The last I played around with improvising was with "Blue Moon" and "Heart and Soul" when I was a young teenager.

That's a time honored tradition: if it works it's production, if it doesn't then it was a test.

In each of the last few recitals I've really wanted to make a submission, but the deadline has been bang in the middle of either hideous amounts of coursework or exam finals! I've finished uni now though, and I'm damned if I'm not going to make this one!

Looking to hopefully submit Chopin's Waltz Op. 64 No. 1, also known as Minute Waltz or Petit Chien.

Well, I figured out what I'm going to submit -- something a little different for me (i.e., not classical and my own arrangement). This time I'll make sure there are at least FOUR notes!
