Well, after the fabulous celebration of Chopin's 200th birthday we enjoyed recently, we now have to look ahead to our next half-yearly ecital: 17th October, in commemoration of his death day.

The works open for this ecital are: the Waltzes, and any work not covered in a previous ecital (see chopinrecital.org to check).

I have already had some offers, and know that some of you wanted to carry forward pieces you hadn't quite got ready for March 1st. If I have missed out anyone, please let me know and you will be added to our list.

The list so far:
Horowitzian: Nocturne in F major, Op 15 no 1
AlisonWhittle: Berceuse, Op 57
Jazzyprof: Posthumous Impromptu in C sharp minor, Op 66
Frycek: Op 11 Larghetto
Rustyfingers: Mazurka in B flat, Op 17 No 1


Additionally, a call to Schubertian, Piano&Violin, Secondo, Bassio and co to ask if they want to submit their Mazurkas?

I would indeed, thanks Mary Rose. Mazurka 17/1.


If I had ever learnt, I should have been a great proficient.

If it's possible, I'd like to sign in for Waltz No. 10 In B Minor, Op. 69 Np. 2. However! If any of you would like to play this waltz, feel free to do so! smile I don't have my mind set on this one in particular - I have never known the waltzes well and I am sure I will find lots of enjoyment in other ones too. So, basically, I'm willing to switch and give this one up to someone else smile


It's great we have another recital! smile

Best wishes!

I'd like to contribute op 69 no 1 if nobody else wants it.Like Mati, I'm not particularly bothered which one I play so if anyone else wants to play it, please say so and I'll be happy to choose one of the other waltzes.

I'm good for Op 64, no 2. I've worked on it on and off, despite my teacher's objections, and that gives me some time to finish what I'm doing now and get to work on this one. This one is pretty popular, so if I have to drop out I'll know by June/July and I'm sure someone will cover it smile

So we have eight pieces already:

Horowitzian: Nocturne Op 15 no 1 in F major
AlisonWhittle: Berceuse, Op 57
Jazzyprof: Posthumous Impromptu in C sharp minor, Op 66
Frycek: Larghetto from Op 11 Concerto
Rustyfingers: Mazurka Op 17 No 1 in B flat

Maestro_007: Valse Op 64 no 2 in C sharp minor
Timmyab: Valse Op 69 no 1 in A flat major
Mati: Valse Op 69 no 2 in B minor

Do you realise how few Waltzes Chopin published during his lifetime? Only eight, although there were more than double that altogether - so plenty to choose from!

Go ahead and sign me up for Waltz No. 19 in A Minor (Posthumous I believe). If someone else wants it though they're welcome to it. smile

Now I'll just have to try and remember, October is still a long ways out!

If I were to abide by the same guidelines as everyone else then I would'nt be true to myself as butchering perfectly good music seems to be my true calling. Oh well, I'll hack up some Chopin somewhere else then. (banished back to the land of misfit toys ....again!).

OK Mistaya - looking forward to that.

Frycek - no pressure, see how you feel.

Mr Super-H: you are only banished by yourself! Why don't you play some Chopin as he wrote it? You might find it surprisingly rewarding. If you are a toy I think you must be "Action Man" or maybe Barbie's boyfriend Ken wink

Ok, here is the deal. I'll play Chopins Prelude in C Minor {Opus 28, Number 20} in its entirety AS WRITTEN. No funny stuff. Then after a long pause of silence..(for the purists who know whats about to come next!), I'll just toss in a small little sample of whats really going on in my mind.

Will that fly?

I have to say I'm dying to hear this. At the same time I want to keep the Chopin ecitals (particularly the one in memory of his death day) reverent. So I'll have to think about this, Mr s-h.

I noticed that the op 7-1 - mazurka in B flat major, was never recorded, if this is correct I'd like to change from op 34-2 to op 7-1, ok?

cheers

Ok Mary, no problem. smile

But, I didn't find this information in the link "http://www.chopinrecital.org/5301.html". It is suposed to contain all the recordings so far? Or there is another link to others events, like mazurkathon?

Could you post the link to the other events (if this is the case)? Perhaps I can find more options of works to chose (I don't have much options since I'm begginer :))

Thanks

I was thinking about what Mr SH said, and I thought of the week-long Chopin celebration in Warsaw. There were many people there played improv of Chopin pieces to the point you couldn't even recognize what exactly they were playing.

So I want to suggest that we have Mr SH to play the Prelude No 20 in C-minor as Chopin wrote it, then after that he can improvise to his taste. Having heard his playing in many ABF recitals, I think we would have some pleasant surprise.

I agree. So we look forward to your contribution, MR s-h! (Special dispensation - no other improvisations please - we don't want our dear Chopin spinning in Pere Lachaise).

Great I'm in! Put me on the list. I knew if I worked my charm a little Mary-Rose would let me in. (She's sweet on me you know. So is Monica but she won't read this because she only plays that goofy new-age stuff. Hehe). Actually, so do I so never mind.

Anyway, now that I'm "officially" on the approved Chopin recital list, I'm gonna go nuts with this piece. If the deal is that I've got to play the original as written then I sure hope it's not to hard to learn because my sightreading abilites stink. Good excuse to actually read something even though I'm going to have to use the "every good boy does fine" / "All cows eat grass" method at first! Haha, pathetic I know but think about it, even if I only learn one bar a day, I'll still learn all the bars in a matter of several weeks right? Then just play them one after another until they flow smoothly together.

No promises on whats coming on the ad-lib version but your probably going to regret it! To late to turn back though; A deals a deal.
