Ah, hartelijk bedankt, Wouter, that's the type of information I was hoping for... smile I'll download VLC and check it out, and with any (bad) luck, you guys will be hearing from me at the 29th recital.

Piano bar = Paper napkins.

Quarterly recitals = Linen tablecloths.

I could elaborate but this pretty much sums it up. Why not start out with a piano bar entry as a warm up and then jump in the next recital in Feb?

Right, paper napkins it'll be for a start. (But I need to tune my Ibach first - napkins or not. wink )

A few comments.

44. Valencia -- work in progress, Chopin Etude Op. 25 No. 11. Sounded very good.

40. Sam S -- Chopin, Raindrop Prelude. A great piece, that I could listen to many times.

36. lyricmudra -- Liszt, Consolation No. 3. Wow. Beautifully smooth flow and balance.

31. zrtf90 Richard -- Faure, Romance Sans Paroles Op. 17 No. 3. Overplayed and underrehearsed? Not that I could hear.

28. MaryBee -- Für Elise. I love this piece, and you played it with complete mastery.

25. Hawgdriver -- Chopin, Nocturne in B flat minor, Op.9/1. Chopin is growing on me. I wish I could play as delicately and smoothly as you do in this Nocturne.

23. SandTiger -- Original, Shimmer. I can hear your joy in playing piano in this composition.

12. Jake S. -- Chopin, Prelude Op. 24 No. 4. It is mind-boggling to me that at only 10 months you are playing this well.

10. TimmyAB -- Debussy, Arabesque No. 1. I love this kind of waterfall music, and you play it so nicely.

04. Peyton -- Original, Message from space: waiting for the sun. I loved this piece, look forward to what you'll play in the next recital, and will be checking the recital index to hear more of your playing.

02. jaredm2012 Jared Miller -- Nobuo Uematsu, To Zanarkand. I would have said you had been playing for years, not just 5 months, from listening to your playing. This was a sensitive rendition.

I am awed by the composers and improvisers in the group, and by the people who can make complex music slide flowingly from their fingers. I am impressed by everyone's courage and generosity in sharing your playing in the recital.

Chopin is growing on me, and I have all the Chopin performers in this recital to thank for my new interest.

Impeccable piano sound, as usual. Your playing seems to get more confident and musical every time out. I've never heard of this composer, but your playing makes me want to learn about him, which means you've done your job really well. I wonder what you'll be playing in four or five recitals from now!! Thank you!


Thanks Sam! I also wonder about 5 recitals away, but I think I know what I will be playing two recitals from now since I'm already working on that laugh

Thanks Starr Keys! looking at my todo list
there will definitely be more sides coming!

Thanks for the additional info. Or maybe I played something in a very similar way as they played?

After listening to the recital, I am inspired. Such beautiful pieces. I look forward to contributing to my first recital in the months and/or years ahead.

Happy New Year to all. And thank you for sharing your work.

Wow, no.25 by Hawgdriver is really great. Thanks for that.

I also hope to contribute soon. However I'm just getting going with piano, so maybe I'll skip a couple.

How nice that people are still listening to the recital, and taking the time to comment.

I agree with you, floydthebarber71, about Hawgdriver's piece. I thought it was lovely.

We have had recitalists with only a couple of weeks worth of experience, so if the spirit moves please join any time. We *are* the beginners forum, after all.

Thanks again to those who are listening afresh.

A promise is a promise, so here are my last comments on comments.

Greener, Inlanding, SwissMS, Ganddalf, zrtf90 - I'm glade you like my piece. Thanks for your comment.

Kenjazz - The melancholy tone was not willful ... I just tried to keep the "wave" of the original melody. The piano sound is better but I still can not make the recording sound more "rich". Thank you.

Lyricmudra - As I said before, I tried to not make an abrupt transition to my composition. Thank you for your comment.

Sam Rose - I had doubts about sending my 1st "real" composition for the recital. But my daughter gave a "push"... Without her I had not even done the extension. Thanks for your comment.

Happy new year!!!

Sorry for the late reply! I am glad to have you guys commented on my very first time Recital. blush

Thanks everyone for the comments and suggestions, many of you mentioned about the loud background. I should had recorded it with USB ^_^ It is the technical problem I need to learn about for my further recording in the future.

01. CarlosCC,
When I listen to your recording, it makes me think of some of the theme song of Final Fantasy, I don't know why.

Beautifully done!! Yours sounds more like Classic, I don't know why Starr Keys put us together, laugh

My note reading skill is very weak, if I need to learn a song by reading notes, it takes me forever.
