Okay, everything is pretty much done except for uploading the duplicate zip files to the esnips site; I have the first few on there but will do the rest tomorrow.

I was too busy at work to cheat and listen to the entries early whome so I don't have comments at this time, but I've had the streaming player going all the time I was working on the recital, and I've been hearing some truly terrific playing.

I think we can all be pretty proud of ourselves for pulling off yet another impressive recital. Congratulations, everybody! thumb

I started from the back again, and I'm glad there was a recital to come home to. We had a great band at contra dance tonight, but it leaves me "high" and the recital was a great change of pace. Here's what I've listened to so far.

66. AnthonyB - Exit That was so well played! Great touch and expression. The silences were well-done, tho I suppose that sounds silly. Maybe it was the timing, but they were perfect. Beautiful.

61. TTigg - Glasgow Love Theme Another lovely piece. I liked your split sound. Between you and Anthony this is the perfect after-dance music.

56. rustyfingers - Elves' Dance What a cheery little piece. I liked the bass interludes - made me laugh.

51. ShiroKuro - While the Trees Sleep How nice to have you back. Lovely piece, and very musically played.

46. bluekeys - Invention #4 I love it. I've never been able to memorize this kind of music, much as I like it. This was a treat.

41. grotrianer - La plus que lente Oh, I liked this very much! I kept waiting for the disaster, though, and it never came frown Lovely, lovely.

36. Always Wanted to Play Piano - Sonatina One of my favorite pieces. You played it with a very nice lively feel to it.

35. Jillian - Morning Prelude Brava! It is pretty. I'm really impressed with the steadiness of your tempo and the confidence with which you played.

30. Copper - Air I am so charmed. I have a whole book of Purcell, and we dance English country to his music. This was wonderful.

25. Carl Mc - Piano Sonata You play so hauntingly. It was lovely.

20. salzdt - Kupelwieser Waltz Waltzes are some of my favorite music. I can see why this would be fun to learn. Congratulations on outlasting the red dot laugh Nicely played.

15. Mar_red - Stranger/Love Congratulations on your creativity. I like your style. The scat was funky smile

10.kokomo61 - Piano Sonata I was wondering how your hard drive disaster was coming along. I don't think I'll ever know what I didn't get recovered laugh This was well done, with some nice expressiveness in the right hand.

05. Ken. - German Dance There was some really nice dance quality in there. How cool that you can still play your second piece.

There, I think I'm relaxed enough to get sleep now. I'm looking forward to all the rest of these.

Thanks to all who work who to make this recital possible.

Hi everyone, I agree Monica deserves a big Thank You for all you have done.
I only have dial up so it is going to take a while to listen to them all, but I will try to get to them all.
..
So far, Jillian for being almost 8 years old I think you did a great job, now I think if you keep at it by the time your my age you will be out of this world, thanks for posting it for the recital, aloha from Hawaii.

Thanks again to the powers that be that make the recitals possible and all the work they do.

I'm picking entries randomly from the hat this time, in groups of a few at a time:

07. TrueBeginner - Autumn River
Always amazed at what you're coming up with. Almost carousel-like.

22. cscl - Kuhlau Sonatina Op. 55, No. 2, I-II
I really would have liked to have heard the third movement. Nice dynamic changes and good variance in staccato versus legato playing. Most of the scale runs sounded quite good, just a bit of work on where they are leading is what I heard. A really nice listen.

43. Yamaha G3 & P-80 Mike White - Military Polonaise Op 40. No. 1
For being way above your head it was sounding quite manageable under your hands. I've worked on this one a couple of times. Never got it that accurate. At least in my mind, I would work on the repeated turns and slow them down just a might. Nice job on a tough piece.

34. pianonewb - God on the Mountain
Somehow I didn't need to know the robe thing. Hopefully there are no speed-o appearances. smile Really enjoyable and good vocals. Everyone should be thankful that I will never sing along to one of my entries.

51. ShiroKuro - While the Trees Sleep
Beautiful. A lot of feeling came out in your playing.

jazzyprof - Nocturne op.48 no.1

Yes, Chopin is amazing and no, you didn't butcher it, but instead played this Nocturne very dramatically and very well, as such a somber, less lyrical piece requires.

02. dannylux / Mel - Bersagliera

Jaunty and energetic indeed! Delightful piece, very expertly played uptempo - up to your usual high standards (we've come to expect this) - I remember hearing Ponce pieces played on Classical guitar by Segovia some years ago which were always entertaining - I wonder if they were composed for guitar or were transcriptions of piano piece?


(03. epf - Prelude No. 16 in Db Major

I wasn't familiar with Vandall's work so this is a very lovely introduction - you're correct in saying that it is a "pretty prelude" and you highlighted that with your soft, easy, expressive touch - nice job and a nice piece to dedicate - enjoyed this a lot.


More to follow...

Another set of comments.

55. Musictuary - In The Groove
How did the grade 5 exam go? I missed the piano bar entry and really missed out, this was very enjoyable.

21. Riddler (Ed) - Easy Living
The lifetime of noodling is really paying off. The recordings you share are always a great listen.

48. TX-Dennis (Dennis Turner) - Suicide Is Painless
Maybe lunch before recording is a better idea? smile Didn't sound even remotely as bad as advertised. I used to watch that show so much when it was in syndication, every night at 10:00pm. Thanks for transporting me back to those days.

63. DragonPianoPlayer - Prelude in E Minor (Op 28 No 4)
Nicely done. It's a piece with a couple of really tricky parts in it.

06. Mr Super-Hunky - Cristofori's Dream
Woohoo! One of those pieces that first introduced me to New Age music. :applause:

Working hard this morning to get through a good portion of the entries.

Or is that hardly working? Listening is so much fun. smile

61. TTigg / Steve C - Glasgow Love Theme
Okay, I have no idea where this song is from. It's probably really obvious and I'll feel dumb. Nice performance Steve. Still amazed by the progress people make in such short time. Sounded great.

53. Mateusz 'Mati' Papiernik - Tooi hi no Kizuato
Not as plain as the lunch. Really nice Mati.

03. epf - Prelude No. 16 in Db Major
A composer I know very little about. I can see why you ordered the complete set. Wow. Everything is just so well played so far.

45. joangolfing - Italian Concerto (Presto movement)
A nice start on some very tough music. I'm sure the tempo will come and, ignoring the tempo, the playing was wonderful.

02. dannylux / Mel - Bersagliera
Jaunty indeed. I really liked your playing. Nice and crisp and bright.

I was wondering how your hard drive disaster was coming along. I don't think I'll ever know what I didn't get recovered


Thanks for the feedback on the Beethoven, BTW!

Thanks for asking about the hard drive....some good news, some (likely bad).

I recovered more than I thought I would.

My Documents folder - recovered - 52GB
Applications - recovered or re-loadable
iPhoto library - some pictures irreplaceable.......recovered! - 25GB worth
iTunes library - recovered (completely, I think). - 12GB worth
e-mail - I have the past 13 months....

Still missing....
GarageBand files - not too much, but still, I'll have to re-create anything there.
Older e-mail archives - back to 2004....still missing.

I've cloned the drive to an external one, and am running the recovery (again) on it....each attempt takes 3-4 days, and previous ones, have crapped out at 60-70GB. One got all the way to 200+GB, then failed. I've hooked it up to a different machine now with a good internal hard drive, and the computer is going to the Apple Store at noon today.....If I don't get back any more data, that's probably OK. the 180GB or so of the encrypted folder includes the data listed above, plus a lot of files that aren't relevant.....the only thing I really want are the email archives....and some folder info for my iPhoto library.

I am backing up daily now, and no longer using encryption....consider the lesson learned.

^Glad to hear you are having some luck getting stuff back. Hardware failure is a nasty thing.

44. Euan Morrison - I'm Going to Make a Cake
I was really looking forward to this. I wasn't disappointed. Very nice. I liked the title.

37. mahlzeit - "Up" Theme
That was very enjoyable. Impressive result for a rush job.

33. ten left thumbs - Clair de Lune
One of those pieces I've looked at before, played the first ten or so bars and then given it up as too much work. I'm lazy. I admit it. Wonderful and expressive playing. A treat.

19. Bunneh - Première Gymnopédie
15 months? I don't think I tackled one of the Gymnopédies before eight or nine years. Another very nice submission.

27. Jazzwee - Autumn Leaves - Rhythmic Play (to do)
I don't know, I thought the somewhat wurly sound was quite effective, especially given the 3/4 4/4 you were doing. You are constantly amazing me with the rhythmic and melodic stuff you are doing. Kudos.

Early morning, coffee, everyone sleeping and I get to listen to all you wonderful players...

01
Performer's name: jazzyprof


Wow, such a deep complicated long piece wonderfully done. You must of been working on it a long time. I couldn't imagine trying to record it cleanly...bravo! The B sounds great also...

02
Performer's name: dannylux / Mel


Not familiar with this piece, but its well played and your digital does not sound like a digital. Awesome recording. Thanks

03
Performer's name: epf


Great gentle touch and feel on this piece. Really nailed the dynamics. Videos are extra credit too! Thanks

04
Performer's name: Ode2Joy


Mozart is one composer I find super difficult even on simple short pieces. You did a wonderful long recording on that sweet C-3...thanks.

05
Performer's name: Ken.


Well done Ken, I'm doing many of these short pieces and I really like them. You nailed it. Thanks.

06
Performer's name: Mr Super-Hunky


I love this piece and hope some day to play it. Welcome back to sheet music (lol). You really did a great job. I can't imagine trying to record something this long and complicated. The BB sounds like butter too. Bravo!

07
Performer's name: TrueBeginner


I'm always amazed at those who can imper vise and this time too. Well done. Did your 8 year old ever end up playng it? Thanks!

08
Performer's name: Peyton


Another high end difficult piece not only recorded but video taped. How you guys do it so well amazes me. Especially Chopin which takes such a special touch. Another Bravo! Piano sounds super too...

09
Performer's name: Sam Smith


Play it again Sam! I really liked you playing. I would never guessed that was a digital piano, very acoustic sounding.
Thanks. I never heard the bench either...:)

10
Performer's name: kokomo61


What a great classic piece. You really played it well. You must record this on the Estonia, but the digital sounds very good too.
I'd like to give this one a shot in the future too. Thanks for sharing it with us...

more to come...

I couldn't agree more Mark. It's Sunday morning, wife's reading her paper with her cup of tea. I'm sitting up in my office, chilled, relaxed and listening to all these wonderful recordings.

Here's my first batch of 20....

01. jazzyprof - Nocturne op.48 no.1
Loved it! As always I'm amazed at pieces longer than 5m. I even tried one myself once (which I need to re-do) and will possibly attempt this again soon. Loved the "dark chords" in the bassline. Yep, I think Chopin is bloody talented!

02. dannylux / Mel - Bersagliera
Very technical piece and yes, very much enjoyed listening to it - well done!

03. epf - Prelude No. 16 in Db Major
Very beautiful indeed. I'm becoming more and more fond of the Preludes as I hear them / play them more and more. Great job! On a side note maybe you can help me with how you edited / saved the movie in WMM? My title and the video itself looks WAY more grainy than yours (which looks crystal clear & perfect).

04. Ode2Joy - Piano Sonata in C, K330 Andante cantabile (2nd movement)
Very calming and relaxing piece to listen to, very well done!

05. Ken. - German Dance in A Major, WoO.13, No. 11
Ken I just LOVE the authenticity to the sound of your spinet , great job!

06. Mr Super-Hunky - Cristofori's Dream
(cup of tea and sad down ready) wow (insert applause) I have always been an admirer of Lanz's work and I confess to having one of his books. I'm not ready to tackle this piece just yet but getting close (it's on the radar so to speak). Great performance MSH and I continue to look forward to more of your pieces. (end applause)

07. TrueBeginner - Autumn River
OK now your just showing off smile. Another "great" composition and I'm still blown away by your progress & talent. You've been playing only a few months longer than me and whilst I will admit to having "tried to put together some of my own stuff" it's nothing like this, marvelous and keep up the great work!

08. Peyton - Nocturne in Bflat Minor Op.9.1
Simply amazing and very enjoyable to both watch and listen to. Looking forward to move of your videos/updates over time – great work!

09. Sam Smith - Song Without Words, Opus 19/4
Great job Sam and I didn’t hear the bench creak however if you have any tips for a “seriously” squeaky sustain pedal please let me know

10. kokomo61 - Piano Sonata No. 8 in C minor, Op. 13 Adagio Cantabile
Very enjoyable piece to listen to, thanks for submitting. P250 eh? I keep “scanning” Craigslist to see if I can pick one up, I love them! I’m also getting more and more curious about Garage Band and the wonders I may be able to do with it (Artist Lessons etc)

11. flyingfroggy - Nocturne #20 in C# minor (posth.)
I’m sitting here on a frosty Californian Sunday morning listening to your piece and gazing out of the window. Yep, pretty much perfect so well done and thanks for submitting. I confess I had one heck of a time getting my piece in and whilst I’d normally strive for 100% perfection (or as near as I could get it) having little glitches here and there, for me, keeps it real. BTW I couldn’t tell where there were any mistakes anyhow, loved it!

12. Glen R. - Waltz (Op. 39, No. 15)
6mths!! WOW great work and keep up the lessons. I’m very much looking forward to hearing more from you.

13. HomeInMyShoes (HIMS, Homey, Home, Aaron) - Trois Gnossiennes
Another stunning performance, very well done!

14. Kalai1/Chris - Leo O Kapo (voice of the night)
Sounded great and was enjoyable to listen to. As for the chords I wouldn’t worry about it. I’m still amazed to this day when I hear about people on Telly etc who (Daniel Powter etc) who have no idea how to read music and have to have people transpose their work, they just sit & play.. Great job!

15. Mar_red - Stranger in Paradise & Love Letters (medley)
It was very enjoyable to listen to, nice work!

16. Sandy Moore - Hills of Purple Heather
Very nicely done Sandy and I’m sure your brother will enjoy hearing it for sure

17. b528nf7 (Bill) - Layla
Great job, I see someone has a new “toy” to play with.

18. Todd Vance - Sonatina (Clementi, Op. 56 No. 3)
Amazing performance for 9mths! No really!!

19. Bunneh - Première Gymnopédie
Simply stunning and beautiful. Excellent job and one I must put on my “keys list”..

20. salzdt - Kupelwieser Waltz
Welcome to the ABF Recitals! Very well done and was a pleasure to listen to!

OK time for some more espresso!

12. Glen R. - Waltz (Op. 39, No. 15)
That was very nicely played. Your teacher must be proud for only six months of lessons. Very nice touch.

36. Always Wanted to Play Piano - Sonatina Op.36 No.1 in C major - 1: Spritoso
I spent some time this year working on this Sonatina. I thought it was cute, my wife made me quit it. Maybe I'll finish it up with headphones some time. It could be a bit zippier, but you played it well. You should be very proud of this after only two years.

66. AnthonyB - Exit
Beautiful. A quite dark piece, but it's title is a fitting end to the recital pieces (even though it's not the last piece I'm listening to).

47. John Frank - Leaves on the Seine
My memory is calling uncle just thinking of committing something of this length to it. That was a wonderful listen John. I don't know about that last note though, sometimes leaving things hanging is quite effective, but I can't fault the resolution either.

52. EJR (Elwyn) - "Ich ruf', zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ" [I call on Thee, Lord] BWV 639
A nice dark sounding piano for the organ transcription made a lot of sense to me. A nice flow to this one.

01. Jazzyprof... man am I jealous!! I have started that nocturne at least three times only to be frustrated by the middle section. It's one of my favorite nocturnes and you did it justice!! Bravo.

OK 2nd batch, probably going to need some breakfast before tackling the last 20...

21. Riddler (Ed) - Easy Living
Very enjoyable to listen to, I also couldn’t stop staring at your “moving” avatar!

22. cscl - Kuhlau Sonatina Op. 55, No. 2, I-II
May your “reign” continue thumb great job and I love the sound of your 190!

23. Schubertian - Hungarian Melody (D817)
A very enjoyable piece to listen to. The Dynamics came out very well and very much made the piece come alive (for me at least)

24. kawaigirl1 - Like the wind
Yaaaaay she’s back (applause) You’ve been missed and it was a pleasure to hear your work again. Stick around for a bit this time I know you’re swamped but you’ve been missed around here.. Loved the piece, very VERY relaxing and enjoyable to listen to thumb

25. Carl Mc - Piano Sonata No. 14 OP 27/2 1st Mvt (Moonlight Sonata)
Great job Carl and I very much look forward to tackling this piece soon (next year) as I see it’s in #3 Alfred but towards the end. It’s one of those great timeless pieces that is always a pleasure to listen to.

26. Triryche (Rich) - In God's Hands
I love David’s work. Nicely played indeed. One of the things I love most about his music is the sheet music is “exactly” as your hear it. With Wayne Gratz I’ve noticed they are always different to how the recording was done (!). I’m going to have to add this to the list as I simply loved the flow and dynamics – thanks for submitting, really enjoyed it! thumb

27. Jazzwee - Autumn Leaves - Rhythmic Play
Brunch buffet? Now I’m hungry (lol). Very nicely done and the old school Electric Piano sound 2 sounded great!

28. Frotz (Brian) - Notturno (Op.54 No.4)
A very relaxing and enjoyable piece to listen to.

29. Monica K. - Quel Che Resta
wow look at those fingers dancing across the keys. Simply stunning piece Monica played to perfection!! Bravissimo!

30. Copper - Air
A very light and well played piece – thanks for submitting.

31. jotur/Cathy Turner - Sentimental Journey
Nailed it and it sounded great thumb As for lunch, err, nope but then again I thought I was mad with Peanut Butter & Ketchup…

32. Eighty8 - The Summer Knows
Well played, enjoyable to listen to.

33. ten left thumbs - Clair de Lune
Beautiful. “Ahh Danny Ocean” and I can’t decide whether I prefer the old school “Rat Pack” to the newer Pitt/Clooney mob but none the less it was a pleasure to listen to.. Well done thumb

34. pianonewb - God on the Mountain
Nicely played. OK so to “add” to your side note I think you kind of sound like Scott Glen so now I have the image of Scott Glen in his robe and slippers playing and signing (lol)


35. Jillian - Morning Prelude
wow Stunning playing Jillian, keep up the “GREAT” work, sounded simply awesome!

36. Always Wanted to Play Piano - Sonatina Op.36 No.1 in C major - 1: Spritoso
A very technical piece for sure, sounded great so pat yourself on the back thumb

37. mahlzeit - "Up" Theme
Sounded great and was very enjoyable to listen to. My original yearning for Piano came from Film & TV Music so pieces from movies always grab my attention. Rush job you say? I re-recorded and re-submitted my piece in the final hour just before I went to dinner – we’re mad aren’t we…

38. 1WeekPlayer - Minuet in F major BWV Anh 113 (Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach)
Nope I didn’t like it, I loved it! Very well done and keep up the AMAZING work.

39. Piano Again - Prelude and Fugue in C sharp major, Well-Tempered Clavier Book I
Love the sound of your 190 and this piece, wow, very fast and very dynamic. I think if I tried to play something like this my head would spin!

40. CMohr - Mazurka op.67 no. 3
Nicely played, Chopin has so many different levels of enjoyment.

24. kawaigirl1 - Like the wind
Thanks for giving yourself a kick. It was a joy to listen to.

15. Mar_red - Stranger in Paradise & Love Letters (medley)
I liked them a lot. Fun stuff and there's nothing wrong with faking it.

32. Eighty8 - The Summer Knows
Nice dynamic playing. A really nice piece. Maybe there should do an adult beginners movie music recital some time?

08. Peyton - Nocturne in Bflat Minor Op.9.1
I won't charge you for the missed measure. Beautiful playing. Hypnotic like it should be. I've tried so many times to learn a Nocturne and just given them up as being beyond me doing any sort of justice to them.

18. Todd Vance - Sonatina (Clementi, Op. 56 No. 3)
Nicely played. Very impressive for 9 months and only about 3 years earlier. The forumers consistently make me feel like I make almost negligible progress.

It might be a while before some more comments, but I'll get around to it.

What a great start to the day. It snowed about a foot last night and is still coming down. Got the oversized mug of coffee working and some great music to explore!
Big hats off thank you to Monica, Mahlzeit, Copper, LaValse for their time and efforts.

26. Triryche (Rich)- "In Gods Hands" /b]

Rich, very pleasant and soothing and a perfect one to start my morning. I enjoyed your playing very much.

[b]27. Jazzwee- "Autumn Leaves - Rhythmic Play"


Good job on the one take. I don't know how you do it. I'm sure I look like a bobble head doll while listening... just can't keep still!

28. Frotz (Brian)- "Notturno (Op.54 No.4)"

Brian, Not familiar with this one- thanks for the intro. Good job of maintaining focus - well done.

29. Monica K. - "Quel Che Resta"

Monica, I can see why you wanted this to be your recital piece, it is a beautifully played piece. I love the rhythmic rolls and it is amazing how the silence speaks and weighs on you.

30. Copper - "Air"

Copper, Good job of maintaining the theme- very delicate.

31. jotur/Cathy Turner - "Sentimental Journey:

Cathy, The title says it all... thanks for the trip. Beautiful intro and loved the trill at the end.

32. Eighty8 - "The Summer Knows"

Remember the movie and the music well, had a huge crush on Jennifer O'Neill. Thanks for the reminder- I enjoyed it!

33. ten left thumbs - "Clair de Lune"

I have a personal interest in this one and was especially eager to hear it. It is a beautiful piece and I think you conveyed that well. I think you are very close to having it well in hand. Your piano seems to be well suited to it also. Thank You!

34. pianonewb - "God on the Mountain"

Very familiar with this type of music- well done.

Time for a re-fill.
