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

I am delighted to introduce our 12th 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:

Zip File 1
Zip File 2
Zip File 3
Zip File 4
Zip File 5
Zip File 6
Zip File 7
Zip File 8
Zip File 9

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

http://www.esnips.com/web/PWRecitals


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!!!

AGAIN: DO NOT REPLY OR POST ON THIS THREAD!!

It's a very romantic, very sweet piece, with some unusual, dissonant harmonies adding a bittersweet touch.
The main difficulties in this Nocturne are the many twos against threes, some of which I played nicely wink
and the very pretty run of ten against six at 3:08.
You can download the score at:
http://www.piano.ru/glinka.html
(the sixth link: Íîêòþðí)
The Nocturne seems to speak of love and gentleness and beauty.
I hope you like it. </td></tr></tbody></table>

*Magicland* is a compolation album I am putting together (self recorded cd) that I want to create to serve as a benchmark of my playing abilites as well as a cheap x-mas gift.

When I record a final version of this piece,(this one is still a bit rough as it's not finished yet), I will do it on the big acoustic grand which sounds so cool.

Until then, I hope you enjoy this one. </td></tr></tbody></table>

Most of it is considerably faster than my normal new age fare, so it's been a good training exercise for my fingers.

All the better to get my playing critically evaluated, since everyone is familiar with it. After all, isn’t that what the Adult Beginner’s Form Recital is all about?

This piece is my greatest accomplishment so far. Thank you to Monica K and bluekeys for inspiring me to learn it. This is living proof that PianoWorld recitals are beneficial. It wasn’t as easy as you said, bluekeys, and for a while I was mad at you because of it, but I finally learned it and now we’re friends again. Thanks for your encouragement.

During the past three months I have experienced my greatest gains ever on the piano, partly because of the following two experiences:

1 - I completed a workshop in fear anxiety. The result is that I have successfully performed this same piece in front of an audience of ten people. This is tremendous progress for me since only three months ago I could not play even simpler music for a single person due to my nervousness.

2 - I now have a piano teacher. The progress I have made in suppressing my performance anxiety has allowed me to play comfortably in front of a teacher. But I admit that this is not just any piano teacher. She is very patient, seems genuinely sensitive to my nervousness, and in our short time together we have made real progress. I suspect Betty Patnude will be pleased. And Betty, I know you won’t believe this but this teacher claims that I’m not a difficult student to deal with at all. Isn’t that amazing? </td></tr></tbody></table>

"Hava Nagila" translates to "Let Us Rejoice" and is a song of celebration heard everywhere: weddings, bar mitzvahs, festivals, harvests, etc. - perhaps even at divorces and funerals! It is almost always danced to in swirling, interweaving, highly synchronized (and very energetic) movements that simply radiate sheer joy and exuberance.

I had an infrequent struggle with the infamous and dreaded red dot on this one - got very frustrated - said the heck with it - went for it one last time and here's the result: lacking in polish and finese but overflowing with enthuisiasm and "hutsva" (sp.?). This is probably the 2nd most fun I've ever had while sitting down.

Regards and enjoy, JF - and Hava Nagila! - or as the very old, stale joke goes: have two Nagilas! Mazel Tov. </td></tr></tbody></table>
