Hey Sam, for all the work you do, I vote for you to go ahead and manipulate the software and take whatever spot you want.

I feel for you. If it was non-classical and the note otherwise still fit with the chord, I'd leave it. But with classical (as is yours) yep, I'm afraid I would be re-recording too ... as I have also been tempted to do, each time I take a listen to what I posted. I don't listen to it anymore ...

Sam,

Nobody probably would have noticed that single inner note? However, is the overall sound and energy better than the previous recording? I usually don't worry too much about a few small mistake... There's a pretty obvious 'typo' somewhere halfway my recording ;-)

I came in at #44. I've been fighting the beginning of a cold and sore throat and felt my energy sapping and my throat getting scratchier by the minute, so it was now or never smile. Not perfect but better than I'd had a right to expect given how crappy I was starting to feel.sick

The first recording was better, of course - yeah, that's the ticket, it was way better. smile

There are different kinds of mistakes though. Knowing the right note and accidentally playing the wrong note is forgivable. But miss-reading the music and playing a d# instead of a c# is a worse error and pretty embarrassing.

It's worrisome how often this happens. I know I'm getting old. Maybe I need new glasses smile

Eek! I did it. I submitted a recording of just the first and part of the last page of winter wind. it's rough and short and slow compared to how it is supposed to be played, but oh well. It was fun. smile

Note to recital listeners... Just because someone is in as number 1 or 11 does not mean that is the order they need to be listened to. I for one will be listening first to the two people that worked the hardest to make these recitals happen... Monica and Sam. Regardless of whatever number they finally end up entering. smile

I always get a kick out seeing the order other people choose to listen.

Some go for all the new comers first, some go for folks they know better, some according to genre, some go for all the ones with videos...Some start at the end and go to the beginning.....

Me? Traditional, conservative - I start at 1 and work my way through smile

Can't wait to start listening tomorrow!

I made it... went with the Schumann, struggling all the way. I even managed to delete one of my good takes... with sick kids around all day and up half the night, I didn't get the "horseman" take until very late last night!

I forgot to mention lunch... today it will be chicken livers, yummm.

Looking forward to hearing all of your pieces!

Last night I managed to get a recording I was happy with. Unfortunately I wasn't able to finish learning either of the two peices I had hoped to play for this recital. It was either play a peice that I learned a week or two after the last recital or run through various things in Alfred's. I decided to spend a day re-learning the earlier peice and re-record it rather than play the 'basic' Alfred's stuff.

What is the opinon on one mp3 with different versions of the same peice? The piece is about 1.5 minutes long. I have the recording from last night, the original recording from 2.5 months ago, and a for-fun recording played using a non-piano voice on my digital piano. I was going to record all three as a single mp3 and submit that. Would it be prefered if I only submitted one version?

Norrec - you don't have to worry about it being 1.5 minutes long - I've submitted several that are around that length, and so have others. Most of mine don't go much over 2 minutes, because they're pop songs, and that's the most times I can repeat them without them becoming totally boring laugh What we enjoy is hearing "where you are now" - and I know that when I go back and listen to my earlier submissions that's the part I like knowing. I can tell what my progress has been.

Some people do make bigger "productions", like adding slides for a video, etc, but really, those are just frosting on the cake. The music is the real deal - and your re-recording is the real deal, too. It's what we really want to hear, your music, right now. It's a submission in the true spirit of the ABF recitals, and when you listen to it again, several recitals from now, you'll love hearing where you are right now.

That's my take on it, any way. I'll look out especially for your submission!

FWIW, my submission this time is 1.5 minutes... my submission the last time I participated (2 recitals ago) was 1 minute, and the time before that it was 1.5 minutes. I'm on the shorter end of things, but by no means alone down there.

I'm with Cathy - the spirit of this, to me, is part about the fun of the music (however long) everyone brings to the table, and part about "where you are right now in your playing".

Exiting this. I'm in for the first time, and hope that both my playing and the technical issues with recording and file formats are ok.

Actually I planned to submit a shorter piece, but after recording six different compositions I went for the one sounding best to me. "Unfotrunately" this was a Chopin piece. I promise to come up with something more original the next time.

Recording my playing and listening to it was a tough experience. But also quite useful. I'll do that frequently in the future hoping that it will help me improving my skills.

Ganddalf, I love classical piano music, no matter how much or how little it is played, so no "unfortunately" for playing Chopin from my point of view.

The deadline says it's 9 p.m. eastern time, but the countdown hours and minutes on the submission page work out to 8 p.m. Just in case anyone is planning to submit even later than I have (6 hours and 20 minutes to go), you may not want to leave it till the very last hour.

Submission countdown timer is correct now. Do not be late. Someone was late last time and did not get in. If I were you I would not wait until the last hour. The submission period stops when Monica says it stops, which is sometime around 9PM.

The timer was off because it started before we changed to DST - corrected now.

I just sent you your magic code, Starr Keys. It would've been easier if you had mentioned what your PW name was in your email. I had to do a bit of sleuthing to figure out what entry was yours. wink

It won't be before 9:00, but it possibly will be 9:01. I've got a very early morning tomorrow so want to get going as soon as I can.

Well I just snuck in my "what you had for lunch" description. I didn't fill it out originally because I was in too much of a hurry to nab an early bird spot and was going to get back to it. I almost forgot!

Anyway, I used my 'magic code' to make a simple last minute editing change without a hitch. (Nice feature).

I wouldn't risk sending in my MP3 submission at the absolute last second though simply because it is what Monica is asking us NOT to do. [Insert the 'firm as concrete' thing].

She doesn't get paid enough and you've got two weeks..[336 hours) to submit your piece. No need for the last minute stress bomb.

My goodness, I have GOT to quit procrastinating. It's going to be the death of me I know it. But I'm so glad I got this in under the wire! These recitals are highlights of my year thanks to everybody here!

Happy Halloween
