Out of curiosity, what do the rest of you use to record the pieces you post to online recitals here, and is there someplace where the linking process is described in terms so simple that even an old guy could understand? smile

Thanks!

Personally, knowing nothing about recording, I went the Audacity and Zoom route recommended there, and found the instructional links to be awesome.


I'd rather play badly than not at all...

I was stupid enough to sign up for a fourth piece - "May" from the Seasons. It is so beautiful, so I simply couldn't resist it. Also it didn't sound too difficult, but there I was wrong.
I'm a stubborn person, though, and I still plan to record and submit all four pieces.
This event really made me discover all the beautiful piano music of Tchaikovsky. If I ever get sufficient time and energy I'll learn more of his pieces. I also look forward to listening to the contributions of all of you. How is the progress/frustration level?

I can concur with what you say, Ganddalf. The music is excellent, the best o` the best imo. I`ve even BOUGHT the Album for the Young (op39) and even in that, there`s some challenging pieces. But because they`re short, they`re digestible.
The one I first grabbed is incredibly lovely. But darned hard . .hard . . but simplifyable . . .This site doesn`t like my speling . .
But in the fullness of time, I`ve turned from frustrated to hopeful . . .

The Berceurse is coming along well. Just this week I've gotten the rhythm in two tricky measures almost working. It's a lovely piece, and I'm enjoying learning it. Now I just have to figure out how to pronounce it correctly.

I picked the easiest piece in the list "The Sick Doll" and it was going well until I listened to a few experts play and then I played it for my teacher. She pointed out I was not voicing the left hand properly so there is more work to be done.


Problems with piano are 90% psychological, the other 10% is in your head.

I have recorded my piece, In Church, (one of the easy pieces) so I'm set, I think. I have also learned The Old French Song which I adore and I can't wait to hear Recaredo play it here. I also adore Berceuse and am looking forward to MaryBee's rendition. There are a few other pieces that I am quite taken by; Morning Prayer is another nice one. Tchaikovsky's music is rich!

I probably committed to too much too - the Chopin Waltz recital, the Joplin Recital, the Tchaikovsky Recital, and I'm accompanying my wife in a clarinet piece due in March.

So the Barcarolle is last on the list. I can play the easy parts! But not much more. After something else drops off the list I can concentrate on it again.

Well, I'm sorry to hear you won't be doing this one. I absolutely love this piece and often teach it to my students. I hope someone snatches this up!

I am tempted to take on Morning Prayer, since I've had my recording done for a while now (and it gets worse whenever I try to record it again, so that one will do!)... but I'm afraid it's too hard for me. It doesn't look easy at all.

I have a spreadsheet that fixes up the list quickly and easily. Sorry I've not been around much.

I've taken Dipsy off Reverie and added myself to Morning Prayer. I don't want to see it not taken but if anyone wants it I'll change quickly to the Peasant Prelude. Just ask!

The Tchaikovsky Themed Recital is due to take place April 15.

To preserve existing selections, always QUOTE from the latest list then, in any order:

-- Delete the initial "[quote=<name> ]"
-- Delete the final "[/quote ]"
-- Add your name and the bold tags, "[b ]" and "[/b ]", around your chosen piece.

Then submit the new list.

A 30sec clip is available of each piece in the same order as below @ Deezer (If you sign up or in with FB, the whole pieces can be played for free)

I played through it a couple of times last night. So glad it's in the recital - it's wonderful. And I'm glad Richard signed up because I was "this close" from saying - sure, it's playable, I'll do it. I know it would have taken way too much work to get from my sight reading to it being performance ready!!!

It's a beautiful piece. Glad that it's not left out.

After sight-reading it a few times, I think I'll learn it anyway. Anyone else?

We have a nice roster of quarterly inter-mixed with themed recitals; starting now and taking us to May.

Perhaps a short summer break (June, July) will be in order leading up to the August quarterly recital. But hey, what then? I'm beginning to twiddle my thumbs with anticipation ...

Would there be enough time/interest to start thinking of the next, themed recital for September, October time frame? If so, suggestions for theme ?

Did we discuss this somewhere before and I missed it?

There were some themes mentioned before, long ago. I seem to remember Einaudi (or new age), Great American Songbook, Bartok (lots of things in the Mikrokosmos, but I've never played any so I don't know).

What it takes is someone to suggest something interesting, generate some interest with a thread, volunteer to lead the effort, and then start a thread where people can sign up.

Sam

Getting closer. Thanks Sam. Just a quick nother moment here then before I dash off and create a new themed recital thread ...

Something Interesting:
Yes, I recall newer age being mentioned and more specifically, Elton John and Beatles themes being discussed with some interest.

I will suggest --am suggesting-- broadening the scope further and just call it a non-Classical, Modern Themed Recital. Anything non-classical from 20th century forward is game and first time singers (with Piano accompaniment of course) highly encouraged. Or, would preference be towards a more specific theme; Elton John, Beatles or other

volunteer to lead the effort: I nominate Greener

Hey I just learned an arrangement of "Can't Help Falling in Love" grin

(Seriously, stop me from joining other recitals until I learn how to play a piece from beginning to end without stopping a thousand times and/or getting a heart attack!)

I've recorded a pretty decent take of my piece. How do I actually submit it? Do I just send the video link to the original poster (zrtf90)?

We've not decided yet how we'll be doing this but it's most likely going to be the same as the quarterly recitals. The Joplin looks like going the same way a month earlier so we'll have a better idea of what needs doing after then. We'll also need someone to administer the thing, too, and I know my name's pencilled in but a volunteer might be nice.

In fact, PikaPianist, if you've already finished your recording... smile

Not too many weeks until the deadline!!! Having signed up for four pieces I have to start thinking about recording. And I realise that I have quite a few issues to handle before I get the music to the level I want. The easiest of "my" pieces is "May" from the "Seasons". But even this little composition is challenging enough. It is pretty hard to make the piece sound nice, and my overall goal is to play in a way that is enjoyable for the listener.

I'm still optimistic about being able to play all four pieces by April 15th. But I definitely have to focus.

Working hard to make music with Winter Morning. The moves look SO easy but... Good thing it's only 2 1/2 pages. Did anyone take The Lark? My teacher said she had to play that in high school and HATED it...still gives her nightmares. LOTS of ledger notes.

Well, "June" has definitely been on the back burner. I have to get the waltz for the Chopin Recital and the ragtime for the Joplin recital out the door first. Thanks goodness I only signed up for one Tchaikovsky piece!

Pfff, The Chant elegiaque is getting up to speed sort of. "Un poco di Chopin" is getting less attention from me, due to time shortage.
I'm also doing the chopin recital, but the nocturne is ready for recording.
I really need to push it for these Piotr pieces to become worthy of recording. I hope I am able to get it done in time!

I recorded two pieces yesterday evening, "May" from the "Seasons" and "Meditation". I'm almost sure, however, that I'm not going to submit any of these.

The recording of "May" was "just ok", but actually boring to listen to. I'm almost sure I'll be able to do better.
"Meditation" is an awfully difficult piece, but I have spent much more time practicing it, and the recording was more interesting to listen to than that of "May". Unfortunately I missed an important note on one of the most beautiful places and I played the double arpeggii in the left hand rather badly. Therefore I hope to be able to make a better recording of this piece.

Trying to record at an early stage is very useful. At least for me it helps pinpointing the parts where improvement is needed. I always get a bit tense while recording and this increases the risk of making mistakes on places I haven't practiced enough. Also listening to oneself while playing difficult stuff isn't always easy. Sitting back and critically listening to the recording gives a much better idea about how it actually sounds.

I have two additional difficult pieces to record. This means that there is no time to relax.

How much time is there left before a recording needs to be submitted? I'm doubting to have a go at hobbyhorse but I think it's a bit to hard. Maybe with a lot of practice I can give it a try..
