Wishing everyone warm winter greetings!

This thread is the check-in for the 22 February 2010 and 1 March 2010 E-citals, by which our virtual community will pay our humble homage to a great man, a man of character, a man of imagination, a genius whose unique depth of artistry has left its indelible stamp not only upon our hearts but upon history. There will never be another Fryderyk Chopin, nor another 200th anniversary of his birth.

I would humbly ask that participants who see this please check in and verify their participation. Last-minute changes are an ineluctable fact of life; by posting this with some lead time we hope to maximize participation. Mary Rose and I will try to bump this thread regularly to ensure everyone sees it.

This is for Fryderyk - let's celebrate him together!

Hey Gerg, you dropped me! smile I think you misunderstood my last post. I didn't say I was backing out of performing the Fantaisie Impromptu. I was just sending out a call for backup in case I couldn't bring it up to performance tempo. So, you can put me back in as I am still working on it diligently, patiently, assiduously, relentlessly.

My appologies, but I thought I pulled out. I left a message on the original thread at the beginning of this month.

Hopefully. I still practice it, but I'm dedicating less time to it at the moment. Just keeping it in the fingers so I can revisit it when my technique improves sufficiently enough. Watch this space! smile

Oh, stop it! blush Your Barcarolle will bring down the house I have zero doubt. I know how hard you have worked this piece, to perfect every minute detail. I am truly excited by how your playing will be received by this audience. (No pressure now, Heidi! wink )

BTW we have 150GB of web storage; we've used MAYBE 1% of that with our past recitals.

What was I thinking when I signed up for 4 Mazurkas? They were ALL much harder than they looked. I hope to send everything in next week.

LA: "There is not what is needed" or something along those lines. (Mati, I realize that I was an idiot when I was translating it as "I do not have what I need."

I recorded it yesterday as a draft, but I cannot seem to get over the cough that has beset me for weeks, and it isn't adequate. A lot of people here have been complaining that they've been coughing for 5 weeks or more, so I may be dealing with this for a while yet, and time's a wastin'. I'm getting a bit concerned.

As far as my voice goes, nie mam czego trzeba, as yet.

Of course you wasn't an idiot, Elene - don't you even say that! You're spot on with the translation.


p.s. another progress report - my hands don't like this fun Mazurka, but I will complete it without fail, I hope.

I just saw this post for the first time, and I wanted to know if I could submit something. I've just recorded three pieces that aren't on this list. Can I submit them?

Mazurka Op 24/1
Mazurka Op 24/2
Polonaise Op 26/2

Let me know,
MM

Maestro,

Greetings and a warm welcome to our little group!

Mazurka 24/1 is not on the list and was not previously performed. It is yours if you want it.

Mazurka 24/2 has already been performed, one year ago by Theowne.

Polonaise 26/2 is also yours, as it is free.

The e-cital date for the Mazurkas is 22 February 2010, and for the larger works, 1 March 2010.

Again, welcome!
