I'm getting closer with my piece. I create so much tension for myself just from recording. I've just been playing with the recorder on to overcome it, and it's working.

I can submit a super-beginner recital piece after just ~8 months of on-and-off practice? It's just 1.2 pages, and the whole thing is repeated twice basically. I listened to a lot of the last recital pieces, so I know I'm pretty far down the skill ladder.

Yes, please, xorbe! We just had a very long discussion about how there aren't nearly enough 'true beginners' in the ABF recital (which is now called 'beginner and beyond' Recital for exactly that reason).

So please ... be a true beginner brave enough to submit something! We'll be grateful and appreciative if you do.

Well, I submitted, I tried to re-record but I was just messing up more and more!

This recording is really bad, but I'm learning a lot from the recital process. For instance, that slow songs can be much harder than faster ones. So much to work on, and I keep adjusting my practice plan. More and more tempted to get a teacher...

That's what I like about this recital too. Everything has been done up to the performance, you collect the feedback and honours, and use that for future pieces, and then it feels good to drop the piece off the list.

On the contrary... I use to listen my piece tons of times until day 15...
After that, yes, it loses a little bit of "importance", but I never forget what I learned with it.

I really need to move on... probably I will play my piece better after letting it rest for some time, but not right now and certainly not by the 15th!

Resisting to submit a recital piece until my piano gets tuned next week. And hopefully by next week, I'll have Prelude in Em ready if not, it'll be Bach again either Prelude in C major or Aria (Bist du bei mir). These recitals really make me work harder.


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

It depends, if you're too good, you can't submit grin

(That's a new rule I'd like to implement wink )

Well no wonder I can't make my piece sound like the reference recording I have -- the transcription is wrong! I slowed down the problem spot 5x in Audacity (just 5 quick notes) this morning and said "D'OH!" Now I have to unlearn the incorrect sheet music. Give me a week or two ... I might still squeak in. Transcription called for a two-note trill, but it's like "D-E-D-C-E" instead.

Congratulations, dynamobt!! yippie And you will find that the REAL fun comes when the recital is posted and everybody starts listening and commenting.

Page turns are hard. Whenever possible, if I don't have the piece memorized, I just xerox the sheet music and spread the pages out across my music desk.

The best way to deal with page turns? Memorize the music! grin

What to do if the score's too long to fit all the Xeroxed pages on the piano:

Let's assume the score is 10 pages long. Only 5 fit across my piano. So, I tape pages 1-5 together, from left to right, and the same for 6-10. I then put 6-10 on the desk, and tape it so it can't move. 1-5 goes on top of that.

Between pages 5 and 6 is the only turn I'll have to make. When I make that one, I just yank the whole first layer of music off the piano; the second layer is taped so it won't be at risk to come off.

Problem solved! (somewhat grin)


Regards,

Polyphonist

yeah, Anthony - long time, no see. You go to all that trouble to meet Monica somewhere for an Einaudi concert and then disappear laugh But I'm looking forward to your piece. You always did such a fine job on Einaudi.

I'm in. I was disappointed not to be able to use the acoustic, but we have had torrential rain for days on end and even though the tuner was here, the piano has wobbled off centre and sounds too sad. (Tuner will come back but we're waiting for the air to dry out a bit!).

The piece has a few things that are a tad off, but it is pretty representative of what I can do at this point.
Funny thing is that I did it last night, and thought I'd re-try this morning. After several tries this morning, I decided that the one from last night was actually the best take smile That will teach me smile


I'm looking forward to the launch, and delighted to see we've got a round of new comers, as well as some old timers coming back!

I can' believe it's only been four days and there are 31 submissions already! And there's a really good mix of music types. I will be broadening my musical horizons by listening for sure.(As if they weren't already crazy enough..)

I always hear a number of "new to me" pieces during our recitals - it is a real education.
There are a lot of genres I would never otherwise hear - (themes from video games for example - some of which are (to me) surprisingly lovely). I usually end up with a new "Oh! I can't wait to play that" list smile after each recital.

Allard - see you're in with David Lanz's beautiful contemporary instrumental classic "Christofori's Dream" - this has been done here before (most notably by Mr Super Hunky, if I remember correctly) and it's always a delight to hear - eagerly awaiting your interpretation!
