Title of piece:Visions Vugitives #1
Composer:Sergei Prokofiev
Duration:01:32
Source of music:Schirmer Edition
Instrument used:Kawai K3, 2008
Recording method:1 MXL 770 condenser microphone hooked to computer through a preamp
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:The entire set of Visions Fugitives is very colourful. I particularly enjoy this first movement. It combines a melody derived from E phrygian with a variety seventh chords for a very rich effect. I feel that the set in general fulfills the lines that inspired it:

In every fugitive vision I see worlds,
Full of the changing play of rainbow hues.
(Konstantin Dmitreyovich Balmont)

Please enjoy.

Title of piece:Album for the Young, No. 21 - *** (untitled)
Composer:Robert Schumann
Duration:02:10
Source of music:originally sheet music, now played from memory
Instrument used:rebuilt Weihenmeyer & Co. upright (piano originally dates from ca. 1921)
Recording method:one Shure PG 81 condenser mic into Sony Minidisc Recorder into computer via Audacity
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This is one of the three pieces in Schumann's collection "Album für die Jugend" (Album for the Young, op. 68) which, instead of a title, bear only three small stars *** - and, of course, Schumann's instructions. In this case: "Langsam und mit Ausdruck zu spielen" ("To be played slowly and with expression").
Robert Schumann's daughter Eugenie recollects in her book "Memories" what her mother Clara answered when asked about the meaning of those three stars: "These, maybe, are the thoughts of parents about their children."

My mental imagery goes in a completely different direction, however - this is the beauty that lies in romantic music: It evokes very personal and unique feelings, images and thoughts.

I learned this piece a while ago and it has become a part of my repertoire. It keeps changing and growing all the time. This recording dates from today (May 3rd), but I am curious what my playing of the piece will sound like in five years from now :-)

Additional info:This is a flowing piece and I never made it through without a few glitches - that's why I'm a beginner! I'm still working on left hand dynamics and appreciate the constructive criticism I received from the last recital and tried to incorporate into my playing. Thanks for any comments or advice on this one, too!

Additional info:I haven't worked on this peice as much as I'd have liked. The piece I originally planned to submit to the recital is still too rough though.

I'm still not happy with the timing of the dotted eight and sixteenth runs in bars 5-7 and 13-15.

Title of piece:Autumn Leaves
Composer:Joseph Kosma
Duration:05:06
Source of music:: I took part of the chords from Internet the rest is my interpretation played by ear
Instrument used:DP Roland FP-7
Recording method:DP to audacity
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:As before, it is the next stop on my journey to my piano destination i.e. playing known standards or beautiful but less known tunes in the style between jazz and so called cocktail piano.

This rendition of this wonderful standard is probably the “Flag Ship” of my present repertoire and at the same time my next tentative foray into realm of “creative interpretation”. (I’m not quite sure if it deserves to be named improvisation...) It’s a simple, adult beginner’s interpretation (improvisation), not too far from the melody, mainly on diatonic notes. On the other hand, I think the listener should always hear some elements of the tune even in an improvisation. It’s more readable.

I was practicing it as a piano only tune and some day pushed, by chance, the “Split” button on my Roland and suddenly I heard a kind of Trio. It would be my dreams come true if I ever played in such an ensemble. So I decided to present to you this 1.000.001 version of Autumn Leaves in such a form.

And now some technicalities.
The split magic transformed my left hand into acoustic bass and cymbal - the rhythm section. In the left hand I played some kind of stride piano which proved to be convenient and translated mainly into (acoustic) bass and cymbal on the first and the third beat and cymbal with parts of chords on the second and fourth ones.
(Arpeggiated chords in the left hand are still beyond my reach smile. I guess it’s the result of not playing from sheet music at all.)
The chords are played more or less by both hands. There is also a part containing walking bass - my first attempt.

I hope very much you would enjoy it regardless of its too wide scope of deficiencies smile.

And last but not least. Here is the source of my inspiration...

Source of music:Sheet music
Instrument used:Weinbach 170 Grand
Recording method:Zoom H2, on the music desk, high prop stick!

Additional info:I love how melancholy and sentimental this is. The description in the book is "vals sentimental." I envision a woman looking at faded photographs of her long ago love. She goes into quite a reverie in the second half of this piece.

There are 7 waltzes in this collection, plus an introduction and conclusion. I've played the two slow ones (nos. 3 & 6) and a third one (no. 1) slowly! Yes, there's a reason my name is ADAGIO.

Instrument used:Kohler & Campbell New Yorker, studio model
Recording method:condenser mic straight to board and onto cd. ripped cd to computer as mp3.

Additional info:This is a simple arrangement. I don't have a clue what I'm doing. I learned the chords from "Piano Chords and Scales Made Easy", and improvised the melody from singing it. For the left hand I watched the pianist at church until I found a simple, easy to learn pattern that would fit. I started out learning it in G, but realised after 2 weeks that i couldn't sing it in that key, so switched it to C. I hope I didn't hurt your ears too much.

Additional info:These Inventions are fun, but they are wicked hard for such itty bitty little suckers. I spent 4 months learning No. 1 and can still barely play it. I've been doing No. 8 for 2 years and still mangled it near the end. My next one will be No. 4. I hear that's a little easier, so maybe I'll pair it up with another one for a future recital. BTW - for those not familiar, the recording has No 1. first then a pause then No. 8.

Title of piece:Allegro con affetto
Composer:Friedrich Kuhlau
Duration:02:48
Source of music:ABRSM Grade 5 (2009 - 2010) A:2
Instrument used:Digital piano. Kawai CE200.
Recording method:Audacity and Digital to PC.
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This piece is actually the first movement from Sonatina in A minor Op. 88 No. 3 by Kuhlau. It was one of the three pieces that I selected for my grade 5 piano exam (ABRSM Grade 5 (2009-2010). I selected this piece because at the time I was studying Kuhlau's six OP. 55 sonatinas with my music teacher. Since I was doing the exam on my own I figured there should be some similarities with what I had seen before in the Op 55 sonatinas and this one.

When I first played the piece, the beginning measures reminded me a lot of the beginning measures in Fur Elise. I was taken aback somewhat. But I recall reading somewhere that composers of that era freely "borrowed" ideas from each other. So maybe that would explain the similarity between the two pieces.

I enjoyed learning this piece as well as the other sonatinas from Kuhlau. I hope you'll enjoy listening to it. Thanks for listening.

Title of piece:I Due Fiumi
Composer:Ludovico Einaudi
Duration:04:51
Source of music:Ludovico Einaudi - The Best Of
Instrument used:Casio Ap-200
Recording method:Recorded to piano onboard memory, downloaded using Red Dot Forever, rendered to .WAV using Synthfont (Maestro Concert Grand.gig sound font), converted to MP3 using Audacity.
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:I am playing this piece on the first Friday of June as an actual recital piece. I consider this recording rough by the standards of this forum, but not bad for me. I would be totally happy if I played this piece this well for my live recital. Any feedback you have for me that makes that more likely would be heartily welcomed.

For lunch, I had two PBJ's (one I made for myself, and one my two year old eschewed).

Additional info:This piece was a real stretch for me. It’s something far beyond my normal Alfred’s Adult All-In-One Book comfort level (and is also my first non-Alfred’s recital piece). It’s one of a number of piano pieces that got me to start on my current piano journey, one that I thought “it would be great if I could learn to play this”. So well before I was really ready for it, I started trying to tackle this piece. I’ve been at it for many months now and it’s still far from perfect (as you will hear). I’m glad I did it though; I’ve had a lot of fun trying to learn the various parts and working on it has helped me through some slumps when the current Alfred’s pieces weren’t “doing it for me”. Anyway, I hope you enjoy listening to this good old Two Step from 1912.
