No! You can't change! We're forcing you to learn 57/1, or else you don't get to play at all! grin

I don't see why not, unless somebody's taken it. smile

Of course, I'm not the one in charge of this. ha

I'm in, but it will take me a while to choose a piece or pieces. Grieg has always looked fiendishly hard whenever I've looked at him before (all those big chords jumping around), but maybe having made my way through a Mendelssohn Song Without Words I am ready to apply the same slow painstaking practice and make it through a Grieg Lyric Piece.

When is this due?

If nobody's chosen, Book IX Op. 68, No. 1, Matrosenes oppsang (Sailor's song)
I'd like to try.


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

In that case, I will change my second choice to Album Leaf (opus 47 n° 2). Provided nobody else wants it, of course smile.

- sorry Rossy, could you please swap my 2nd choice with my first?

So, I'll do 62-6 (Homeward) and 43-1 (Butterfly) - the latter if no one takes it...

Ahem... I see that 3 pieces are graded as level 2, which is obviously above my level, but maybe I could try and tackle one of these if there is plenty of time?

Op. 54 no. 6 (Bell ringing) is full of double notes, just what I need to practice! Op. 12 no. 3 and 8 look more daunting... what do you guys think?

Rossy - you will definitely be regretting putting this together with all of us switching around crazily - but can I change my 2nd choice piece to Op 71 No 2 - Summer's Eve? I'll leave my first choice as is though. Ta!

Rossy, Wayne, I suggested a while back that this phase of the recital - each participant selecting a piece(s) followed by your good selves confirming our respective choices in an updated list - would work with foolproof reliability if you were to allow each participant to post an updated list with their own amendment. There's no possiblity of abuse since the history is preserved in the thread and the latest list showing would always be THE list.

Collating all this and doing the presentation at the end is a mammoth task, that's clear. And Wayne did a cracking job of recruiting - whipping up volunteers to fill the gaps - throughout the SWW recital. Leaving the assignments to us would be one less chore and still leave you with plenty to do.

I realise of course you want to be hands-on but it's just a thought.

I agree. Looking every now and then for new entries, changes and then updating the list every hour is an overwhelming task for one person! Instead, participants can volunteer for updating the list themselves. And since this recital is getting bigger and popular, some tech guy can think of a dedicated and automated web page for accepting entries at least, like the ABF recital.

- take a chance and go for it. There's plenty of time for you to get stuck in for at least a month then if you think it's too much someone else will pick it up...

This looks popular!

Unlike with the Mendelssohn jobbie, I know many of these pieces and have a few on my radar (three slated for this year), alas, they have all been taken already - what a difference a day makes!

I won't do one I already play so I'll go with Op. 12 No. 3, The Watchman's Song, unless one of my targetted pieces is released with the chopping and changing taking place at the outset - and if I see it in time!

okay I'll give a try to op. 54 no. 6 then! And If I find out it's too hard for me, surely somebody else will be able to take it.

Sorry Limefriday, Farmgirl got in first with 71.2 so a change from 68.4 is not possible.

OK, I've had a very quick look at what is left and I would like to attempt: 12/8 - National Song and as a potential second selection 71/3 - Puck.

Thanks!

I swear, when I got off PW yesterday this thread was not there. All these names of pieces. How do you guys choose so fast? I've gotten as far as writing out rows of numbers and crossing off what has been taken, putting initials beside second choices in order to see what's left. I don't know the music at all so I tried listening to them this morning. There are so many. Had to scratch off the first four available ones because they were all too fast somewhere in there. Two or three I absolutely loved but they were taken. I may do the one just for myself. But how do you guys choose so fast? I kept watching for this thread because I was too slow on the Mendelssohn.

First off, not sure if I would be able to participate or not. Always wanted to do Wedding Day but, not only is it crazy hard but it's taken. And so is Nocturne Op54.4 which is the other piece I had on my to do list. Oh, Hoblerg Suite opus 40 isn't on the list?

And Henle difficulty. No, they expand beyond the grade system. As an idea they put Wedding Day at medium, level 6 (the top of their "medium") and that's often considered grade 8.

I swear, when I got off PW yesterday this thread was not there. All these names of pieces. How do you guys choose so fast? I've gotten as far as writing out rows of numbers and crossing off what has been taken, putting initials beside second choices in order to see what's left. I don't know the music at all so I tried listening to them this morning. There are so many. Had to scratch off the first four available ones because they were all too fast somewhere in there. Two or three I absolutely loved but they were taken. I may do the one just for myself. But how do you guys choose so fast? I kept watching for this thread because I was too slow on the Mendelssohn.


I know Keystring, when I posted the thread the choices ( and re-choosing!) came in at a rate that stopped me going to bed!!

If you go to youtube and do a search for Grieg lyric pieces complete, you will find a playlist of all 66 with the music scores showing while the pieces play, there are still plenty left!!
happy choosing!

First off, not sure if I would be able to participate or not. Always wanted to do Wedding Day but, not only is it crazy hard but it's taken. And so is Nocturne Op54.4 which is the other piece I had on my to do list. Oh, Hoblerg Suite opus 40 isn't on the list?

And Henle difficulty. No, they expand beyond the grade system. As an idea they put Wedding Day at medium, level 6 (the top of their "medium") and that's often considered grade 8.


Andy, if you want to play "Wedding day", I'm willing to give it to you. I have lots of other pieces to choose from.

Thanks for the offer but I think I'll look for a simpler piece that I can learn along with the other pieces I have planned and tackle Wedding Day when my piano skills are a little further advanced.

Rostosky, you should give my second choice (68/1) to ElleC. She asked for it, and I already have an assigned piece. She doesn't. I'll take Album Leaf (47/2) for a second choice, then.

I started listening as soon as the first mention of possibly doing Grieg pieces came up. I went to the Henle site and just decided to listen to the levels 6 or 7. I also wanted to do Wedding Day, Nocturne and Butterfly, but I knew those were popular and I have run through them before so I decided against them.

I fell in love with From early years (65/1) as it had some concerto-like elements to it and very dramatic sounding. I had been thinking I could do the Grieg concerto, which I've always wanted to do, but I really do *not* have the time for that.

Anyways, I'm sure you'll find something, there is a lot of beautiful music still out there.

saranoya, ElleC had allready been given 68.1 !! do look at the list girl!! lol.

I have edited it for you to have album leaf as a second choice.

Right, is everyone happy so far?

I may not be after picking a tricksey thing for myself, but am unwilling to change it because i would have to edit my choice on the list.............no, only joking, sticking with it.

Well, I used the Jane Magrath book, which lists the standard teaching literature, and a grade for them. Her grades are 1 or 2 higher than standard, and she only lists the pieces that are commonly used by teachers. So her grade 10 is "early advanced" level:

12.1 - 6
12.2 - 6
12.3 - 5
12.4 - 6
12.6 - 7
12.7 - 6
12.8 - 5
43.4 - 7
54.3 - 8-9
54.4 - 8
54.6 - 6
65.6 - 10
68.1 - 5
71.3 - 6

What the heck, put me down for Opus 12 No. 5, Folkevise (Popular melody). I should be able to tackle that without needing to destroy the other pieces I'm working on.

The recital does go live in 2015, right? wink

If you did, I'd have to get out one of your riding crops you seem so bent on using. Seriously, do you own stock in the riding crop industry? :P

I think you'll be fine with this piece - it's not easy, but those 32nd notes seem to be almost like drumming your fingers and I think it may sound a bit harder than it actually is (though I've never played it).
