It's nice to know that it's not 15th as I was traveling this week. It's not fluent yet but I will deliver on time.

It's amazing how many strange things may happen as soon as the recorder is running. I regret that I didn't start recording the pieces for this recital already a long time ago. Firstly because this gives me the opportunity to spot the points with the greatest improvement potential and secondly because this would help getting rid of some of the "red dot anxiety".

I have recorded my four pieces now, and learnt a few lessons. Most important perhaps is the fact that the simpler pieces are just as difficult to make good recordings of as the harder pieces. Maybe the simple truth is that there is no such thing as a simple piano piece.

It is tempting as soon as a recording has been made to put the piece aside. In this case I plan not to do that. I'm convinced that there is still potential for improvement, and it can be quite interesting to see what can be done with the weak points with some additional practice time.

When I started making the first test recordings a week ago I needed the sheet music for all except the most difficult piece. During the recordings, however, I repeated the pieces so many times that now I need the sheet music only for the simplest one. This is a very great advantage, especially if you have to turn the leaf.

Many times during the recording process I had a strong feeling of incompetence and was quite frustrated. I consider the end result as "acceptable", but not more than that. Anyhow this is an amateur recital, and we should not use professional artistic level as a reference. Also it is not a competition, but sharing music that we enjoy working with.

You`re dead right man! I do that quite a lot. It doesn`t make for a big repertoire quickly, does it?

I contacted RagnhildK who is responsible for Op.19/2, and helped her with the recording of the piece. I'll take the responsibility of handling her music file. In other words, you can consider her contribution as checked in and it will be available on time.

I'm sorry that I have not been posting for a while, leaving some uncertainty about my participating in the Mendelssohn recital. Since my piano is seriously out of tune, I was very grateful to Ganddalf for giving me the chance to use his piano and his Zoom.
My opus 19/2 has lots of things that can be improved, but at this point this is the best I can do.
I'm really looking forward to hearing the complete recital :-)

When the songs are posted (in digestable chunks) can you leave the previous ones on and just . . .add to them? Otherwise I may not be able to hear the first day or so, I`ll be away!

Yes absolutely this is how i intended to do it:

day one first six opus numbers ( as printed in the book)
Day two will have the second six opus numbers,(plus the six from the day before and so on) etc etc.

They will be up FOREVER! well as long as PW exists as a forum, and I suppose that will depend on many things such as North Korea/USA/China/Russia not creating an imminent apocalypse
say for example.

A policeman reseigned yesterday after stating "she died, but just 87 years to late"

she wanted to be cremated, but of course there isnt any coal.

I would jump up and down with glee, but I have brittle bones due to a calcium deficiency as a child caused by lack of milk.

Tonight in trafalger square there is a party.

Anyways, I will be busy practicing medelssohn instead or revelling.

Yes, and pumped about it. I'm doing some post recording practicing today to see if I can rile the neighbours. Oddly enough I play them much better now.

How quiet it is on this thread and RST! Is it because everyone is working away on their pieces? And if so, hows it going?

As for my preparation, I can almost play the music through without it breaking down completely, thank God.. .. and feel that it might be worth having a go at a recording.... I guess that'll be an 'acid test' of how robust my playing really is.

However, whether or not there are slips (mistakes, not petticoats) in the recording, I'll feel something has been achieved cos I know I've pushed myself into doing more than I was capable of before this.
I'd like the deadline to come soon so I can do that big sigh people do when they have just finished an exam.

For Rossy, the huge task of putting it all together has now begun....
