She has successfully guided us in all our travels. But when GPS came along, and I started listening to the GPS lady instead of my wife,... well, you can guess what kind of resentments and suspicions this gave rise to. I tell ya, I'm on the defensive now. How often do I have to say it? "Honestly, honey, I do NOT have a thing going with that GPS lady!!!"

Once in a while I deliberately ignore GPS lady. It is worth getting lost, just to allay suspicions.

LOL Good advice Ed -

Most of the time I am the navigator, not the GPS lady. Sometimes I shout to my husband -"Don't listen to her!" --- and he, wise man that he is - ignores her.

My wife strongly dislikes "Jane" my English GPS lady - it has something to do with the fact that she got us lost in Portland, Maine a couple of years ago - we were trying to bypass the city and ended up downtown - she kept saying "take the motorway" (which is English for freeway or expressway or interstate) and I did, but there were too many interconnected motorways and either Jane or I got confused (I'd like to think it was her) - my wife has never forgiven her - now when we travel she refuses to get assistance from Jane, but instead taunts her (and me) by saying things like "are you going to take the motorway here?"

But, I still have faith in Jane - when I'm driving alone I even use her during trips where I know exactly where I'm going and how to get there - her voice is so, well, a, er, reassuring...

lol.... Ours, which we call Nagging Nellie (because when we don't listen to her she nags us to turn around and go back), has never really lead us astray, but she too likes to try to send us up on the "autostrada"(highway) too much for my liking. There should be a way to turn off the selection of toll roads but I can't find it on mine. On two or three occasions she's helped us find beautifully scenic routes to travel...There are good days and bad with Nellie.

(We seem to have hijacked the thread...but it's your thread..hmmm, maybe we should get back on track (Oh, I sound like Nellie!)

OK Nellie - back on track - what was the topic? Oh yes, the Recital - my piece is now recorded - 3 times - can't figure out which is best (or least worst...) - still time for a better 4th - one of the advantages of missing a Recital - 6 months to polish your piece - sometimes still not enough...the other question - will another contentious current thread in the ABF cause complications? Probably not, but it's nice to have a little contention - just to break the monotony and stir up the blood...

Do you find that other thread contentious? I don't think it is -I think some great things have come out of it.

I've been practicing like mad the past few days and my piece is coming along very nicely.

Plus the tune is scheduled for 30 April - I hope that on 1 May I'll be able to get a good recording!

Great news for me. This time I will make it. I am recording a Debussy piece that is not so well known. At least not as much as Clair De Lune. I'm giving myself time till a couple of days before the date and I will record it. Whatever happens happens smile

Oh Peter, you're out ot the loop. Let me lasso you back in smile

Here in ABF we have quarterly recitals.
They happen in February, May, August, November.
Call for submissions is on the 1st of the month and you can submit any time til 9pm EST on the 14th.
The recital opens for listening on the 15th.

I think we're on number 28 now.
You can check out previous recitals here, at the wonderful index prepared by SamS :

ABF Recital Index

They're loads of fun!

I'm assuming there's going to be another thread for this come May 1st? Otherwise, where/who do we submit our piece to? Also, does it have to be video as well as audio or audio only will suffice?


Adult beginner since January 2013. My only regret is that I didn't learn sooner.

Audio only is just fine. Some people take video of themselves playing, others make a production of some degree or another. Many just listen to the audio and skip the videos entirely, so there should be zero pressure on that aspect (or any other for that matter).

The call for submissions will look quite like this: ABF Quarterly Recital #29

Well, I have "a" recording. But I hate recording. Not because I make mistakes - I don't make any more mistakes than anyone else. But it is such a nuisance - I have to take everything apart and move it into the office, where the computer is, and then reassemble it, plus get out the cable to hook it up. But there's no way to reach the computer comfortably from the keyboard, and I have to wear headphones, and they not only sound crappy, they sound out of tune so I'm never sure I've even played the right notes, and it's absolutely not my favorite thing to do. And then, if I want to do it more than one session I have to move the bench and the computer chair around, and I can't get around the keyboard to get to anything. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it.

So I have one more weekend, but I'm not sure it's worth the aggravation. Snort.

So you may have to put up with whatever I've got.

In my next life I'm going to be rich and I'll be able to afford a set up that's easy and good.

I ordered a Zoom H2n today from Sweetwater.com. I hope to have it figured out in time to record something to submit. I'm clearly very optimistic that I will get the hang of the thing because I downloaded Audacity tonight too!! I am determined to be able to join in on these recitals if not in May then the next one!!

Hi Cathy, not sure what kind of set up you have. However, many use a portable recording device. Many on the forum have a Zoom brand device. A few have a Tascam. I use a Sony. Depending on how many features and what kind of quality a person desires, the cost might be $40 to $400 (on up if a person wants fancy). I am the low end with a used Sony voice recorder and am happy with the audio quality. A bonus is that I can use it to make field recordings.

I know, Sand Tiger, but at the minute $40 for a recording device is for someone rich smile

Thanks for the concern, tho.

Got a few more recordings today. The last one was close, very close, but a couple of very audible gaffes mean I'll have to keep going.

The call-for-submissions is creeping up so soon. Just mailed my tech, hopefully he has time to tune and fix my piano!

And in the meantime, I got to fix a few more issues with my recital piece laugh

Decided to re-record my Mendelssohn piece for the recital. I feel like I'm cheating! But my ending was so jumbled due to tension - and each subsequent recording got even worse! I think I need to break that section back down and build it back up.

AimeeO - that's not cheating - it's a dedicated pianist's desire for self-improvement - now, if you submitted it to Ecco Fatto, or if you had Mendelssohn record it for you, that would be cheating (but good luck with that last one laugh )

I read an article on Gramophone's website about the Berlin Phil recording the Rite of Spring:

The process is more complicated than the name ‘Live Recording’ implies, much more than just taping the performance. They record all the performances of the concert (three, in this case), as well as the dress rehearsal (a pre-take to catch the quiet moments) and then have a patch session afterwards, if need be.


Well, if they can do that for a live recording, all bets are off for the ABF recital! wink

Sort of begs the question as to what exactly they wouldn't consider to be "live" in that case?

I'm not sure if I'm kicked out of the quarterly recital or not (haven't been following the thread about that subject for a while). If I'm allowed to participate I plan to perform Norwegian music, and it is not going to be flawlessly.

I keep looking for a smiley face/wink when I've seen people posting comments like this... but there isn't one, unfortunately.

Nobody is talking about kicking anyone off of anything. It was hyperbole (which I regret), for the sake of provoking discussion.

I keep looking for a smiley face/wink when I've seen people posting comments like this... but there isn't one, unfortunately.

Nobody is talking about kicking anyone off of anything. It was hyperbole (which I regret), for the sake of provoking discussion.

My computer is a dying cow, otherwise ATallGuy would not have beat me to the punch in telling you that there's no way you, or anyone else, is "kicked off".

We will be delighted to hear your Norwegian submission!

Of course I understand that. And just to make everything clear - I don't always add a smiley when I'm joking. smile smile smile

I made a first recording of my piece just an hour ago.I hope, however,that I can do better. Next time I'll play Bach for 30 minutes before I make an attempt.

I'm planning to make my first appearance on the recital stage. I bought a Zoom recorder and plan to have a version of The Non-Pareil be Scott Joplin. I have already resigned myself to the fact that there will be a few flubs.....my goal is to keep them to a minimum! My wife was listening to one of my recording and actually gave me a compliment!
