Hey AimeeO - you're going to have to leave just a tad more time than that if I'm going to be last, which I have my heart set on being (my only choice since Monica decided not to give me a "heads up" so I could be first - which I thought was rather "cold"...can you believe that she may have been hinting about some sort of monetary inducement shocked )


Well, I suppose you can have last place...
But I, too, require monetary inducement. If you try to weasel out of it, I will hold your Alison Krauss CDs hostage.

If you go after me, I must warn you - we might not be actually be in the recital. We could quite possibly be somewhere else. Down the street, across the country, on another continent.. I do tend to wander. Since ATallGuy has left me to my own devices, I may get lost.
(I forgive you, Tall Guy, because it is a vacation you'll be on, but I am still going to feel sorry for myself and listen to Eric Carmen borrow from Rachmaninov and put the song on repeat for a few hours)

I submitted! It will be my first recital. :-) I'm not %150 in love with my recording, but I'm trying to tell myself that doing something is better than nothing.

I feel a bit ashamed with my little tune in the middle of Bach, Chopin, Debussy, Schumann... but then for the same reason I'm glad I didn't submit a classical piece - I'm so NOT ready yet.

This will be a great recital indeed smile

Diana, please, please don't feel ashamed.
There's always going to be someone better - they've been playing longer, have practiced more, have a (better) teacher, or are just plain super-talented.

There are folks who started playing pretty much the same time I did who are WAY beyond what I can barely even dream of doing.....should I feel ashamed because I didn't make that same progress? I hope not, because I don't.

I keep saying this - because I believe it - the recitals are a chance to share your music and to show what you can do at this moment.

Next year - or maybe even six months from now, you might listen to your performance and think "oh, wow... I can do a lot better now!" and that becomes an exciting moment.
Even more exciting is when your fellow ABFers tell you that THEY can hear your improvement!!

You're right Cheryl, anyway I must say that this time I'm quite happy with my little song, it's just a bit out of place among the great composers. Let's say it's a minute of "easy listening" after Andy's Bach and before plunging into many more serious pieces smile

Didn't practise much in the last months, frustrated and tired from live and my job, but I've thought I give it a try with the little Minuet from L. Mozart.
Even managed to make a video.

I've been working the piece till 4AM and my "Life" is going fine smile
2/3 of the piece were almost done so it was a matter of refining some details and correcting some errors. Now it's time to listen carefully and try to work the final part.

I'm not using the book just because I've notice that the sheet is very, very different from this "home" version. So, I put the book on the shelf and I used my MP3 player as "source" (btw: it's a very time consuming job).

I know, I know... I still have to do a proper record of it... eek

Hey Carlos. I found the book rather confusing. I've been learning to play that, but there are parts that are hardly recognizable in the recording. There's a very hard triplet section that's originally a violin (A VERY VERY GOOD VIOLIN PLAYER) and as piano it feels rather off. Not to mention impossible. This is part of why I'd like to hear your version so much. Inspiration, at least smile

yay I'm in - my first recital grin

I've recorded a real small piece, a Bach prelude (BWV 939), but it was very tricky for me to learn it.

Unfortunately there is a little mistake at the end of my recording, but I did not want to invest more time in a perfect recording because the Grieg recital is just 5 weeks away and both of my two pieces are miles away from recording... no time for panic yet but I stand there briefly...

Congratulations yester, on your first recital!! It's a big undertaking this time if you are participating in the Grieg recital too!

Can't wait to hear you (and everyone else)!!

That's true Allard. That's why I decided to work in a different version.
It's not easy to listen and (try to) reproduce the sounds, but it's a great experience. I feel that I'm learning a lot. Let's see if I can finish the piece in time for the recital.

Spent an hour playing my piece over and over again to get a good take... I don't feel like learning how to do video editing.

Ah, well the prelude in C is well known for tripping everyone up at the end. There you are doing the mini arpeggios and then the last measures are different ... does it to me every time wink

FYI, this is a good piece for just "reading" I find. I never memorized it but I play it through every now and then. Because each arpeggio repeats twice, it's perfect to train yourself to look at the next measure while playing this one.

I'm #34, much better than last recital's #59, though that may change if I make a better recording.
