Avatar:Avatar Image
Experience:Two years back at the piano - about 1 1/2 years learning jazz. 5 years or so as a child.
Direct music link:click to download
Title of piece:Summer Night
Composer:Warren, Harry (music)/ Dubin, Al (lyrics)
Duration:04:18
Source of music:Lead sheet
Instrument used:1907 Wellington upright
Recording method:The Mikey by Blue Microphones, recorded onto my ipod, converted from wav to mp3 in iTunes.
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:"Summer Night" was written in 1936 for the film "Colleen".
Harry Warren wrote over 800 songs. A couple of the most well known are "I Only Have Eyes For You" & "At Last". In 1942, "Chattanooga Choo Choo", as recorded by the Glenn Miller band, became the first gold record in history.

Warren's music has been featured in over 300 films and many have become great American standards.

I had not heard this tune before my teacher brought it to me about a month ago. I had been working on another tune for this recital but it got bumped for this one. I just wish I had had a little more time to polish it a bit more.

I hope it's enjoyable.

No lunch, but for dinner I had an Italian turkey burger, home-grown green beans and a baked potato

Performer's name:Alpha Terminus (Jim Henderson)
From:Iowa
Experience:Lessons since September 2009
Direct music link:click to download
Video link:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_6wt2vfpLE
Title of piece:Rondo Alla Turca
Composer:Mozart
Duration:04:12
Source of music:Sheet Music
Instrument used:Yamaha C6
Recording method:Zoom H4N 4 channel with 2 external mics. Video is 2 cameras, a new one on a boom above my head, which slipped prior to the piece and my fat head gets in the way sometimes!
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This is my first PianoWorld recital submission and the first classical song I have ever learned / played.

I will play this at my Teachers recital in about 3 months, so it is still a work in progress and I'd like to get it smoother and about 10 bpm faster.

The 2 pennies on the music stand are dedicated to the PW member who told me, in his "honest 2 cents," I should play it at 20 bpm or less, which made me mad and I nearly quit the piece. Pianist forum members including that member will surely think I should still quit but the 2 pennies on my music stand are dedicated to those opinions! I play piano for enjoyment like most of us on the forum.

Thanks to my teacher for all of her help and Ten Left Thumbs as well (though I know I'm not there yet... thanks for your help and encouragement wink )

Title of piece:Clair de Lune, from Suite Bergamasque
Composer:Debussy
Duration:05:37
Source of music:sheet music, free at www.pianostreet.com; played from memory here
Instrument used:Charles Walter 1520 upright
Recording method:Tascam DR-08; converted to MP3 using Audacity
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This is the third Debussy that I've performed in an ABF recital. Like all his pieces so far, it takes me a while of learning the music before I start to like it. But it's now firmly at that stage where I'm in love with it. In this one, I particularly like that each section has its own distinctive character, yet each one flows so beautifully into the next. My concentration while learning this piece was in getting the rhythm right, trying to keep the arpeggios smooth and even, and (as always) bringing out the melody lines. I had to use both the soft pedal and the sustain pedal here, and I still need to work on keeping those straight. I've had this on my to-learn list for over a year, ever since my sister-in-law told me it's one of her favorites and asked if I could play it for her. I'm going to try to play it next month for her birthday.

Performer's name:Starr Keys
Experience:3-4 years as a child, two years 15 years ago that went now where and two-1/2 years this go-round.

Title of piece:The Last Time I Saw Paris
Composer:Jerome Kern
Duration:02:50
Source of music:By-Ear Arrangement
Instrument used:Casio PX330
Recording method:Zoom
Technical feedback wanted:No
Additional info:I originally arranged this as vocal accompaniment with a piano solo between the bridge and last verse vocals. It would have run over 5 minutes but I realized this morning it had been too ambitious a project to pull off in time so I did my best to redesign it at the last minute as a solo. This is the main reason for the hesitations. Most of them are in the last verse which had been entirely vocal accompaniment and therefore required the most last minute tweaking. I had a smoothy for lunch. Maybe I should have eaten some solid food. I might have played better.
