My teacher just confirmed that my choice (Mazurka from Op. 39) is reasonable for my level. He said I might not be able to play it at the indicated speed though.

As soon as I finish the Bach Prelude I'm working on, we'll switch to the Mazurka.

This is a do-it-yourselfer selection process, meaning if you want to claim a piece, you need to add your name next to the selection. Find the most recent post of the list in this thread, and follow the instructions at the top. smile

When will we have the opportunity to select a second piece? I'm considering a piece that is pretty difficult, and in order to learn it before the deadline, I'll have to start practicing soon.

First of all, what I say doesn't count as we're trying for this to be self-governing as much as possible but here's my thinking on it.

This isn't intended to be a stab at a complete list of Tchaikovsky's work but more a piece each from his catalogue. There's no problem doing more than one piece but initial feelings were that extras be given up for someone new to the recital. With such a gamut of easy pieces still remaining and a list of 33 performers (I think the Mendelssohn got up to 34 after several months but this one's only been up a fortnight) I don't think that's an issue here.

Bearing in mind that we still have to listen to all these pieces and the more that get taken the longer that's going to take.

We first touted the idea of opening up for second helpings after November 15 or December 1 to give interested parties to both hear about it and also to choose a piece.

Morodiene has unofficially snagged Opus 2 as a set. I have no issue if you want to pick a difficult piece but I'd rather wait until December 1 before double names went on Opp. 39 and 40. There are still some forum regulars that haven't picked a piece yet who may just need a little courage and a bit more time.

First choices are bold with the performer's name in parentheses. Should we decide now on marking extra pieces in italics with the performer's name in angle brackets or similar?

Does anyone else have an opinion they'd like to share?

Yep, I thought I should just copy the list.
To avoid confusion, I will delete my former post and repost it after this one.
My comment:
No one had taken op.1 yet. Possibly for a reason. I may end up regretting this, but here goes. One piece of op.1.


Everything is possible, and nothing is sure.

I wanted the introducing paragraph without italics. wink

But no problem. Maybe the more often the list is copied, the more people will want to join.

So is anybody already learning their piece? I have mine (Italian Song, op. 39 no. 15) memorized, I sorted out the "difficult" parts and I can play it through at 50 or 60 bpm. I'm quite happy with what I managed to do in two weeks, but I know that now comes the hard part - polishing and bringing it up to tempo. I listened to a terribly fast recording but there is no way I will play it at more than 120 bpm!

Pfffft, lucky you lol wink I'm upto measure 18 (of 95) and already come accross a stretch problem, Bb, C, Bb (no way of compensating the lower Bb with my left hand, 'cos it's needed elsewhere) ...so may have to either miss out the lower Bb, or the C, and just carry on. I doubt there are any solutions to this...

I have M19-23 memorised, polished and pre-recorded up to tempo and M36-39 memorised and polished but slowly. The first phrase occurs with very little change about a dozen times in the total 66 measures and M19-23 is the trickiest variant.

I'm working on M32-36 RH only.

I've only been through the rest once or twice looking for potential technical difficulties that will need isolation or special exercises and found none. I think I have the hardest parts licked and I intend to forget them once I've got them up to tempo and relearn them after I've done the remaining phrases.

I don`t seem able to handle the first page . . .it`s blisteringly fast and I`m still playing it sooo slow; Hard to memorise (necessary unfortunately) because almost every phrase is different . . .but I love it. If I mess up, I mess up!

I'm slowly working through the first page. Looking ahead, it just gets harder. Good thing I have 5 months to learn this!

I have finished memorizing my piece, In Church, Opus 39 no 23. It turned out to be quite straightforward and had some repetition, and it was only 1 page. I might be able to record it in a month or so, but we'll see.

I am so happy that it is in hand, because the Joplin piece is at least 10 times more challenging.

I am unable to sight-read except at ultra slow speeds. Those who can sight read these pieces are at a decided advantage, I think, and it's probably necessary for the longer pieces. I am starting to put in a lot more time sight reading (about 20 minutes a day now) but it will take some time for that to mature.

I have listened to all of the Opus 39 pieces and I really like several of them: Morning Prayer, The Sick Doll, The Doll's Funeral, the Old French Song, and the Organ Grinder's Song. Sweet Dream has its moments, too. I am really looking forward to hearing other peoples' versions of these, and I am learning Morning Prayer and the Old French Song now in addition to In Church.

I would also like to listen to some of Tchaikovsky's more elaborate works. I am finding that his work speaks to me in a meaningful way. Best wishes to everyone.

By co-incidence I had started to learn Old French Song a few weeks before the announcement of this themed recital. It is a beautiful little piece but has a tricky four measures(17-20) with a staccato broken chord bass line. It has taken a bit more time than I first thought but I have it under control now. I don't won't start learning my actual recital piece The Sick Doll until January earliest.


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

I have worked out the fingering for my piece, but Tchaikovsky seems to be another composer who is hard on us small handed individuals. The right hand has several major stretches with held notes and a continuing melody line in the RH. It is going to take some slow work to figure out how to do this comfortably. I love the piece though!

To other op. 39ers - you might want to check this recording by Idil Biret, sounds nice to me:

Or this collection of Opus 39, played by Mikhail Pletnev. Both collections are delightful and I have found that I prefer one or the other at times.

I'm giving up "January". With my March recital, the April deadline for this recital is just too much. I have it half learned. But, going to have to set it aside to concentrate on recital material.


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

Hmm... it seems reasonable to allow second choices after November 30th which has allowed for people to select pieces; and I would want others to have plently of time for their second piece.

Regarding second pieces, I was trying to decide. I listened to The Organ Grinder's Song and was entranced but I thought I might try to challenge myself with another piece which is probably a little too difficult, but hopefully it would advance my technique, understanding etc.. the piece I was thinking about "May" from his Seasons.

Is this piece too much compared to my other pieces that I can currently play, 1st movement of Beethoven's 14th Piano Sonata, Chopin Waltz in A minor, Old French Song etc... If "May" is too challenging any suggestions for another second piece?

That being said is someone knows of a good piano adaption of his Valse from Act I of Swan Lake as that would be my ideal second piece, as I would absolutely love heart to be able to play, it brings back so many memories of my ballet years, and it would be great to come full circle being able to play what I used to dance too.

Have you been through the middle section? If you can play either M24-31 or M45-54 up to or close to tempo, hands separately, within a couple of days you should manage this in the time available. It is one of the easier pieces in the opus which are uniformly Grade 7 ABRSM (though they aren't all the same level technically). Henle marks this as level 4/5. If your teacher gave you the Adagio sostenuto you have the interpretive skills but it's a bit of a march from Op. 39.

If you want it, put your name on it now. It's easier to take your name off later than trying to claim it after someone else has taken it.
__________________________________

There is no requirement to get all these pieces played in this recital. It's more players we want than more pieces but if anyone is looking for difficult second pieces that will need more practise time I would urge you to stake a claim now since uptake has slowed down over the last while.

I'd like to leave Opp. 39 and 40 until December 1 before opening them for seconds.

There have been few responses to earlier suggestions so let me put some more out there and see how folks react...

The size of the works we've been tackling have, at least for me, been a bit of a stretch and have taken time, effort and dedication. If I'm to put that much into it then I'd prefer to have a more appropriate choice for my skills and tastes.

The fact that it IS a themed recital confines my choice enough for me.

Where there's a small collection of works being offered then it's worth having them all shared out but once all the pieces are taken up I see no further benefit in restricting subsequent choices.

Having more than one person play each piece is not enough to create competition in my view. Everything we do, in the classical world, is based on a restricted set of pieces but it's our own interpretation that makes it unique and there has been no sense of competition when popular pieces are entered in the ABF recital by two or more members, but rather been a fun comparison or gone almost unnoticed. It is what the performer does with the material that draws attention not how it compares to someone else's.

The first themed recitals were small in scope, five or six pieces presented by a small group but the Mendelssohn recital showed just how much fun and reward there is in a joint venture and a shared focus and how widely divergent peoples tastes are.

If we chose, for example, to do Debussy's Suite Bergamasque and everyone went for Clair De Lune, that would certainly encourage me to look at the other pieces.

My preference would be to see a list of participants, each with a piece or two they'd like to do, than a list of pieces only available to one person each. In fact I see more benefit from several interpretations.

For second pieces then, I see no need to restrict them to one performer.

Thoughts?
