Sorry for the delay in getting out my comments. I am really enjoying all the recital pieces so far.

35. Teodor - Avalanche - Op. 45, No. 2 Really nice Teodor. Nice dynamics and great job on keeping consistent timing through all the runs in this piece. I can tell you put a lot of work into this piece and I really enjoyed listening to it. Thanks for submitting!

36. Laura aka ten left thumbs - Black Orpheus (Manha de Carnival) Wow, very interesting piece. This rhythm seems really difficult to play. Great job, I really enjoyed listening.

37. CMohr - A Time For Love So beautiful CMOhr! Such a romantic, flowing piece. It’s really impressive that this is your own arrangement from lead sheets. Great job, I really enjoyed!

38. Andy Platt - Sonatina No.4 in G (Andante) Nice Andy. I’ve always thought Clementi was fun to play. You have a nice, light touch and your dynamics came through well. I enjoyed listening. Thank you.

39. Roger Ransom - A Deam is a Wish Your Heart Makes Awwwe, sooo sweet. I just loved your piece. Your playing was refined and the song just flowed. Just beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

40. Monica K. - Divenire Gorgeous Monica. I think you did a great job with this piece. I love the passion in it, especially the slower parts. I’m glad you submitted it, thanks!

41. CASINITALY (Cheryl) - Gavotte Very pretty Cheryl. I’m not familiar with the works of Handel but what a nice introduction. Great job on the trills and your playing was fluent and delicate. I enjoyed listening. Thank you for submitting.

42. bluekeys - Maple Leaf Rag WOW!! Excellent job on this piece. I’ve always wanted to learn it. It sounds like you are enjoying yourself while playing. It is a very difficult piece but you did a great job!! Thanks for submitting.

43. Wisebuff - Le Sommeil de l'Enfant (Berceuse) I just loved this piece. It is a beautiful lullaby. I don’t know the piece so I wouldn’t have known that you cut it down. When you finish it will be a very special gift to your granddaughter. Thank you so much for submitting.

44. achat - Love Theme Very beautiful Achat. I can’t believe you’ve been playing for less than 1 year. You must be working really hard and it shows! I really enjoyed this very pretty piece. Thank you for submitting.

45. grotrianer - Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring Absolutely beautiful!! I really listened through many times to offer some suggestions since you mentioned your teacher wouldn’t work with you on it. My only suggestion at all would be to quiet your left hand but that was only in a couple areas. Overall, your timing, dynamics, and musicality seemed flawless. I really enjoyed your playing! Thanks for sharing!

46. Ode2Joy - Tango This was a really nice piece Ode2Joy. I’m not familiar with the piece but it seems quite technically challenging. I think you did a great job with it and I really enjoyed listening. Thank you for submitting!

47. dannylux / Mel - Gavota Wow! A beautiful piece played beautifully. I listened to this piece several times because I enjoyed it sooo much!! I’m not familiar with this piece or composer but I truly thought you played it perfectly. I loved the passion you put into it, and the sweet ending was just right!! Thank you so much for sharing!!

48. EJR / Elwyn - Hurt Really great job with this piece. It is a very emotional song and that definitely came through with your playing. The dynamics were perfect. Great work. Thanks for submitting.

49. Fillanzea - Aria (BWV Anh. 131) Very pretty piece Fillanzea. You played very well as the piece really flowed without hesitation. I enjoyed listening to it a lot. Thank you.

50. ddh - Daniel - Berceuse (Lullaby) Wow Daniel, what a beautiful piece and you played it so well. Thank you so much for introducing me to this composer. I will definitely do more research on him. I also enjoyed reading his background. Again, your playing was beautiful and evocative. Thank you so much!!!

51. Piano Again - Well-Tempered Clavier, Book II, Prelude and Fugue No. 15 in G major Wow! I too am amazed that you played this from memory and recorded it in one take! It was really great stuff and I enjoyed listening to it tremendously. Congrats on getting through fourteen of the preludes!! That’s very impressive!! Thank you so much for sharing your talent!

52. Lain - Sonatine - I. Modere Gorgeous Lain! This is another composer I was not familiar with but will be looking into. This piece is just beautiful and I can’t imagine it played any better! It is obvious from this piece that you have put a lot of hard work and dedication into your playing. An absolutely incredible and beautiful piece. Thank you for submitting it.

53. MegumiNoda - Visions Fugitives #2 Wow! This was really great! I loved the piece and you played it beautifully! From a technical and musicality aspect I couldn’t imagine it played any better! Thank you so much for sharing!

54. jotur/Cathy Turner - Neil Gow's Lament for His Second Wife Cathy, this was a really nice Scottish piece. I wasn’t familiar with this piece but really enjoyed listening. I can just picture Mr. Gow playing it on his fiddle. Also, I enjoyed reading your description. Thank you for submitting!

55. Hawgdriver (Leon) - March in G minor, op. 76/2 Hawgdriver- Wow! First, I think this piece sounds extremely challenging and second, I think you played it exceptionally well!! I loved the passion in which you played it. The piece flowed really well and the dynamics and phrasing were exceptional. Also, your piano has a beautiful, rich sound. Thank you for submitting!

56. anthonyb - Berlin Song Really beautiful Anthonyb. I love this Einaudi piece and you played it beautifully. Another one for my list of pieces to learn! Thank you so much for submitting and sharing!

57. cscl - Invention No. 1 Nice playing CSCL. You did a great job on this Bach piece, even with the distraction of the children. I’m really glad you were able to get it in prior to the deadline, as I enjoyed listening to it very much. Thank you very much for submitting!


I'd like to thank everyone again for the hours of listening enjoyment!!! Also, thank you so much to all who commented on my piece. I really take the comments to heart and so appreciate them!

Best Regards,
Alleykatt (Cathy)

49. Fillanzea - Aria (BWV Anh. 131)
Good progress being made here. Congratulations on the decision to restart.

50. ddh - Daniel - Berceuse (Lullaby)
Thanks for the introduction to Mathieu. I enjoyed the music and information. Nice playing Daniel.

51. Piano Again - Well-Tempered Clavier, Book II, Prelude and Fugue No. 15 in G major
Very nice PA. It sounds like quite the finger workout and I am most impressed ( envious really ) of your one take!

52. Lain - Sonatine - I. Modere
Beautiful playing Lain. I enjoyed this very much. Welcome to the ABF recital!

53. MegumiNoda - Visions Fugitives #2
Well this is pretty dark- almost spooky. Very nice playing MegumiNoda.

54. jotur/Cathy Turner - Neil Gow's Lament for His Second Wife
Softy now are ye?
Lament:
"1. To express grief for or about; mourn: lament a death.
2. To regret deeply; deplore: He lamented his thoughtless acts."

Now, I am trying to figure out Neil's position. It sounds like it should be "1." based on your excellent interpretation performed here; but it could also be "2.", depending on the circumstances. laugh
Enjoyed it Cathy!

55. Hawgdriver (Leon) - March in G minor, op. 76/2
Richter can be hit or miss for me. Some of recordings his I like a lot and some leave me wondering.
Nice playing and nice dynamics HD.

56. anthonyb - Berlin Song
Very nice anthonyb. I enjoyed listening.

57. cscl - Invention No. 1
Excellent concentration cscl. When I first heard the background noise I thought my neighbor's kids were in the backyard. Well done.

sick omg I got distracted by the Cliburn Amateur and never finished! My apologies! I got distracted, but even the Cliburn Amateur doesn't compare to our homemade (and non-competitive) recitals! wink

41. CASINITALY (Cheryl) - Gavotte - Cas, I can hear your improvement each recital. I understand your frustration in recording and anticipating the unexpected distraction. I hope you're healing well!

42. bluekeys - Maple Leaf Rag - You're too hard on yourself - I think you did just fine! I think Joplin is difficult for anyone, regardless of experience. Just keep at it, you'll sound like an old pro before you know it!

43. Wisebuff - Le Sommeil de l'Enfant (Berceuse) - Beautiful piece! (and your piano sounds great) Congratulations on your new granddaughter! smile

44. achat - Love Theme - Terrific playing at 8.5 months! thumb

45. grotrianer - Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring - ""great-take-so-far"-tension" haha, I love this description! But I didn't hear it at all. Wonderful playing, and shame on your teacher for not working on this with you - you played great without teacher input!

46. Ode2Joy - Tango - Thanks for sharing! I don't think I've ever heard anything from Albeniz before, and it sounded great. I hear you about implementing nerve reduction techniques before recording. smile

47. dannylux / Mel - Gavota - This is one of the things I love about these recitals - being exposed to works I don't think I would ever discover on my own. Thanks for sharing this obscure piece and composer (at least to me) - brilliantly played!

48. EJR / Elwyn - Hurt - OK, I can honestly say that I never expected to hear NIN in the ABF recitals. But it sounded great, well done!

49. Fillanzea - Aria (BWV Anh. 131) - Well done! Don't go on and off. Just go ON! smile

50. ddh - Daniel - Berceuse (Lullaby) Thanks for introducing this composer to the ABF recitals. I love hearing this kind of unusual stuff here! It's a shame when these prodigies leave our realm so early.

51. Piano Again - Well-Tempered Clavier, Book II, Prelude and Fugue No. 15 in G major - ha! You're no beginner, but always welcome here. I'm amazed by your talent and dedication to learn all of the preludes and fugues from the WTC. Just awesome!

52. Lain - Sonatine - I. Modere - wow, that was awesome, well done!

53. MegumiNoda - Visions Fugitives #2 - An interesting piece, no doubt. I hope the recital went well!

54. jotur/Cathy Turner - Neil Gow's Lament for His Second Wife - Very remorseful, well done!

55. Hawgdriver (Leon) - March in G minor, op. 76/2 - Dude, wow. shocked

56. anthonyb - Berlin Song - Wonderfully played!

57. cscl - Invention No. 1 - Well done! haha, I understand the frustrations of trying to record with stuff going on in the background.

Thanks, you guys. Carl - I was remorseful after hearing my recording laugh I have never heard anyone play it the way I heard it played live by a fiddler from Ireland. Not even close. It's a truly haunting tune. Some day I'll re-record and it will be closer to that.

Yes Wouter is right. We are getting a bit sloppy in the medal dept. I don't even know where I put a bunch of mine. Maybe in the garage somewhere.

We need someone to take over the medal ceremony that never really existed. Someone to come up with a good theme and implement it.

Wouter, how 'bout you do it?

I don't quite follow you... Never existed? I thought what yotur was referring to was pretty existing? "good theme", "implement it" confused crazy
