Sorry TJ but I know nothing of the background of this tune. I just heard it on the radio and recognized the beauty of the melody. While the lyrics of a song appeal to many, it is the melody of a beautiful piece that appeals to me most.

This 'song' (since it originally had/has words) does have meaningful lyrics but it was the melody that struck me most.

I applied the usual Super Hunky conversion so you will be getting the usual butchered up, solo piano, Readers Digest version only;...NO singing!

Purists will cringe a little but that's okay because deep down I think part of them likes it. I mean why not?, it's cheap entertainment after all.

I'm literally working triple-time trying to prepare my piece for this recital. With 7 weeks off from lessons earlier this summer, I didn't make a whole lot of progress on it. Then when we finally got back to it, my teacher told me that if I wanted to get it in shape for mid-August I'd have to spend much more of my practice time on it than I had been. So my other pieces are being neglected right now, but I just might have this one ready to record by next weekend.

Just fyi... I'll be out of town until the 11th. I'll be able to check my email on my phone but may not be able to troubleshoot any uploading problems until after I get back. I don't anticipate any difficulties, though, as this is the third time we've done the recital with the new servers and everything is going smoothly so far.

But just in case you're the exception, don't panic. We will get you straightened out. smile

I'm in. Wow! It's only the 6th! Usually it's the 14th. So I'll be a little past the middle instead of competing for dead last laugh

How nice it will be not to be in last minute rush. I may try this more often.

Looking forward to seeing the last 30 or so entries and then listening to everyone.

I can't wait to hear your interpretation!

I had this movement (recently) on my "next to learn" list. It's still there in the pile on my floor (that's my next to learn list), but it was superseded by more pressing (and easier) material! laugh

A subtle nudge might just bring this to the top of the pile of sheet music once again! smile

Hi Ben!

This movement is short, but it moves between drama and epic on a very effective way. I’m sure you’ll enjoy playing it wink .

If you start recording, stop after a single measure, start again without pressing stop on the recorder, does it still count as take #1?! wink

Anyway, in at 38 ....

Well, I've done essentially that when I was playing live, so it seems like take 1 to me! At any rate, it certainly isn't outside the realm of what happens at a real gig or recital. At least at *my* gigs/recitals. Let's hear it for take #1!

Yup, but you don't get to edit that bad measure out with the live gig ... unless you have mind powers that you haven't told us about!

I'm in, a week early, very early for me.

Actually it is a piece I planned on using for 3 or 4 recitals and never got it done, so maybe it is a year late. Either way, no more red dot for a while.

After we went out for dinner, my day ended with me playing piano for my dear wife. It was a good day.

I was hoping to submit a piece for this recital; but I am totally new to recording pieces and don't really know how where to start. I tried Audacity program but it did not work out at all, the recordings were terrible. Does anybody else have some suggestions? Thanks!

Hi Irene,
I've used a similar program to audacity (ACID) and also a Presonus box which allows you to plug a microphone to USB in your computer. I had trouble with the software of both programs, especially the latter. I finally bit the bullet and traded them in for a more convenient technology, the seemingly most popular one around here, a handheld Zoom audio recorder. I bought one with video recording capability but you can get one for half the price without. Here's the link

Irene,
I second StarrKeys suggestion to look at the Zoom line of mic/recorders. I have a Zoom H2 and it works great. No cables, no computer, it is great.

This recital I did it with Audacity.
I plugged a cable from my piano (phones output) to my PC (audio in). It works fine.

Sand Tiger - I see you're in at 42 with "Ashokan Farewell" & I'm anxious to hear your rendition of this gorgeous Jay Unger tune from "The Civil War" - I did this for a Recital several years ago and just yesterday dug out the sheet music again to revisit it and to see if I could improve on my previous version. Love this piece...

So that's what the Zoom is. I wondered. My submission was only recorded on a phone (and sounds like it.

I want to submit, but my piece sounds terrible. frown I can hit all the notes (most of the time), but I can't seem to make it sound decent. *sigh* Can't wait for lessons to start up again in a month!!

I use audacity for all of my recording projects and it records my piano's sounds perfectly - despite the quality of the sounds themselves being less than perfect. Make sure the audio input selection is set for stereo input and not mono as that makes a worlds difference. Aside from that, the only advice is to use a line input port on the computer if available, otherwise a headphones port suffices.

IreneAdler, I had a terrible time trying to record with my computer. I tried various microphones, various programs. I eventually ended up buying a Sony voice recorder, and was much happier. Another big plus is the ability to do field recording.

For the past eight years, I have used a Sony ST25 voice recorder. I just bought a used Sony ICD-PX312. The Sonys are less money and not as good for music as the Zooms (which seem the most popular on this forum), and the Tascams, but are fine for my purposes. Especially for field recording which is my main use, the limitations from room acoustics and background noise are often more significant than the device.

TrapperJohn, thank you for the comments on Ashokan Farewell. Those that have followed my reports on the Achievement of the Week thread, know that I have spent a lot of time and energy on the piece. As a five month piano beginner it has been a long hill climb. After 14 weeks, and over 25 recording takes, having something to upload is a positive.
