>Thanks for your feedback Wouter. I hope you might also consider joining the next Themed Recital being organized for next year. I know you could find this a very rewarding experience.

griffin, yes I saw that recital and yes it looks inviting. But I have no time left at this moment - working on 1 new one and keeping up 3 for a coming recital takes away all my time and after that there will be the christmas break. I'll see next year.

Bravo to all of the players. thumb wow I've just listened to every performance and found a new affinity for Mr. Satie that wasn't there before. Thanks so much to all of you for sharing the fruits of your labor.

Hi! Thank you so much to everyone who has taken to them time to listen, and post your thoughts. I feel honored that I was a tiny smidgen of your day.

I would like to congratulate all of my co-performers on all of their beautiful interpretations! All of the work paid off!

No thanks Wayne! My regular piano studies have taken a nosedive. Doing recitals with deadlines is not a good thing for me to do right now. I have some major pieces I'm working on with my teacher, and I have to remain focused on those for a while.

However, I'd be happy to post the recital if Rossy is too busy when the time comes. wink

Finally got a chance to listen at length and in depth - here are some brief reviews:


Gymnopédie 1 - Griffin - melodic and delicate - sensitively performed - I don't see how you could improve this much at all - very artistically done Grif!



Gymnopédie 2 - Dipsy - reflective and wistful - very nicely accomplished - good choice of accompanying video - just a tad more polishing and you've nailed it...


Gymnopédie 3 - PianoStudent88 - warm, lovely and thoughtful piece very assuredly played - fine touch on the keyboard - enjoyed your performance measurably...

More brief reviews:


Gnoissienne 1 - Peyton - mysterious indeed - if Satie's instructions had been "haunt your listeners" you have accomplished this to perfection - love the dark beauty of this piece with the clear, ringing melody line and the throbbing base - and your patient pacing is remarkable - a mesmerizing and masterful performance Peyton thumb thumb


Gnoissienne 2 - AimeeO - soft and sweet and thoughtful - very nice, gentle performance - so easy to listen to and get lost in - music for a twilight summer evening - well done.


Gnoissienne 3 - Rupak - everything I said about Peyton's performance of Gnoissienne 1 above applies equally well here - this piece could be a companion to that one (another movement in the same suite, as it were) - dark, brooding and mysterious - wonderful execution, especially the ever-so-slightly delayed pacing throughout, and the excellent highlighting of the melody line against the repeating and pulsating base - great touch and feel on the keyboard!

Still more brief reviews:


Gnoissienne 4 - Recaredo - still more dark and somber atmosphere - not sure the video matches the feeling here (maybe scenes along a lonely river bank in rain at dusk?) - very astutely and sensitively played though - good effort Recaredo!



Gnoissienne 5 - LadyChen - finally a brighter and lighter piece - really nice execution of the tricky right hand patterns against the repeating base - this is a very assured performance and a good listen - delightful LadyChen!

Still yet even more brief reviews:


Gnoissienne 6 - dire tonic - appealingly done with a good deal of assurance and skill - after 5 previous Gnoissiennes it's hard to concentrate on or appreciate the merits of this piece above the others (which is unfair to you and Satie), but you did a fine job nevertheless...



Gnoissienne 7 - Wayne33yrs - yes, this one is unique, which could be either a good thing or a bad thing depending... the composition here seems to be a little more disorganized (or less structured) than the other Gnoissiennes which is probably not helpful - you said that the challenge was to make it sound "musical", which you did, although this seemingly wasn't an easy task - sorry that you didn't as you say "get your best performance" although this one was certainly good enough (all things considered). Nice, commendable effort.


Trap


P.S. Hope those of you who participated in this "Themed Recital" (and congratulations again for doing so!) but who have not previously submitted work to the quarterly ABF Recitals will consider doing so in the future - there is a lot of outstanding talent here that deserves to be heard on a much wider basis.

Thank you, Trap. You noticed in listening what bedevilled me in the performance. Not for nothing are those more familiar Satie pieces better-known. It was that haunting Satie mystique I tried without success to find in my piece. Frankly, it left me perplexed, lol! Still, it was a huge benefit to me in the doing of it. Thanks for listening and commenting. The invitation to the quarterlies is noted. Expect to have your patience tested with some R&B noodling in the not too distant.

Thanks to Cheryl also and everyone who posted their kind, appreciative comments. What makes this work so well is knowing we don’t do this in a vacuum.

Despite being written by the same composers this is a disparate collection of work. It's performed by players of different levels of skill and experience on different instruments in different parts of the world.

And yet there's a unity in the ten pieces pervading the recital as a whole. And it's not Satie, that whimsical and ambiguous joker. It's something else. I don't know what it is. I couldn't even listen to all the pieces on the one day, at least not in their entirety, but had to spread it over so many days.

I know from PM's with some of you how much has gone into this and how much it means to have been involved and now it's done it hardly seems fitting for me to add anything. There's nothing I can say that would either add or detract from your collected experiences. It's been a success. You've all taken it seriously, worked conscientiously and delivered to the best of your abilities and none of you have let the side down.

I hope the effort is going to spur on those that don't already participate in the ABF recitals to venture forth again with sharing a little of your playing. I know from my one and so far only submission that it adds a focus and attention to your practice that's hard to find elsewhere and provides a delight in the listening, even to beginners performances, that has, frankly, perplexed me.

Well done, one and all. Superb job!

Thanks so much, Trap and Richard! You are too kind!

This experience has encouraged me to do the ABF recitals. I've learned so much from the process, and the support is wonderful.

Peyton:

Wow - I really enjoyed your performance of gnossienne 1, my favorite of the Satie works.

I particularly liked the sound of your piano. It has real character to it! What year and model is it?

Thanks and great job!

Addendum: I went and looked up Peyton's profile and he shows Pramberger PG185 as his piano.
