Opus 68 - Brilliant, gentlemen...absolutely brilliant !! Thanks to all of you for making my day a little better !!!

BruceD - You capture the true essence of the piece - and your trills are spot on. Lovely performance.

Andy - You nailed it buddy !!

Dire - I knew back when you selected this piece that you'd put in the necessary research and do something extra special with it. Your new keyboard set-up sounds wonderful - and I echo BruceD's observations above. Chopin would've been pleased to hear his final composition played with such sensitivity. Bravo !!

These really are just wonderful performances. I listened to most as they were submitted, and I'm hoping after the holiday rush to give the whole recital a one-sitting listen. (I do get New Years' Day off.) Really, just excellent playing preceded and followed by more excellent playing. smile

There's been some commotion on the forums about the nocturne recital launch time. I said I would launch today, but I haven't yet because certain people have asked me to wait until the end of this recital, for various reasons that I agree with.

Op 63

Sandalholme - You captured the mood (dark drama) of the piece very well.

Op 67

Cinnamonbear - I think you now can say that Mazurka is you. I love your performance.

FSO - lots of energy in this piece. Like your interpretations with accents.

Pavel.K - beautifully played

Jrcallan - I have never heard of the piece but I realize it is a hidden gem. So wistful and beautiful.






Pieces for this year to be decided soon.

Opus 68

BruceD - This is one of the two mazurkas I played before and I wanted to pick it. But now I am glad you took it. You played it extremely well with the clean trills to die for.

Cinnamon bear = mazurka. Should I say more?

Diretonic - wonderful performance. so perfect in every conceivable way. just one question. Did u memorize all the pieces? i didn't see the score. It could be you are as smart as your play, which is a formidable thought!

I would request that you wait until after the last group of Mazurkas goes live at 10:30 tonight. smile

I'm kind of going out of order here:

Mazurka in Bb major, KK IIa No 3, Performed by AZNpiano: Wow, this sounded so professional, like it belonged in a movie sound track! Excellent job, AZN!

Mazurka in A minor, KK IIb No 4, Performed by Vid: This mazurka seemed to be darker in character like No 5, with a little hint of happier times in the major section. I really liked how you captured the mood in this piece!

Mazurka in A minor, KK IIb No 5, Performed by Morodiene: Sorry if the levels are low, hopefully you can still hear it wink

Polyphonist and Derulux :

Many thanks for all that you have done to organize and present this recital. It has enhanced the sense of community that I feel with the members here, and has helped in some way for me to know some of them better through their communicative performances.

Excellent 'e'-cital! I have finally listened to all of these pieces, many of which I've never heard, and am very impressed with the quality of the submissions. Thanks also to Carey, Tim, FSO, and Peter for their kind comments. When I heard the pieces leading up to mine, I honestly wanted a do-over.

Damon - I could immediately tell from the recording that you were using a digital - and a quick look at your "profile" confirmed that. I just bought a digital myself (Kawai CA65) to use for silent practice when the wife is at home - and I think its nifty. May even try to record on it sometime instead of my acoustic !! The folks here who submitted recordings made on digitals (you, Ganddalf, Dire Tonic, etc.) all had excellent results !!

I've just noticed that Beric's op 68 no 1 piece wasn't included in the relevant batch, though submitted on time. There was a misunderstanding over the way it was labelled, which I thought had been resolved.

Since I don't want his hard work to be for nothing, I've included his submission here, for your enjoyment.



Thank you farmgirl, ganddalf, Morodiene, Cinnamonbear, FSO and others for your generous comments made about my maverick contribution. Beric would also like to thank you for the comments made on his Op 33 no 3 piece.

You bought a fancy one! One of my Yamahas has the full three pedal treatment and built in speaker system (but it's still a slab). My humble Technics becomes particularly obvious when single notes are held out. Someday these DP's will sound close to perfect and they make recording a snap. No dog or other environment noises. Reverberation is completely controlled, except my Technics has only 2 settings; on or off! laugh Glenn Gould should have had one to eliminate his singing. The actions still feel funny to me even though I've used digitals for years, but that's the only downside for me.

Yup - the Kawai is fancy - and it was 10 times more expensive than the used Korg SP-100 stage piano on I bought on Craigslist a few years back. The action on the 13 year old Korg is OK - but the piano sounds aren't great and the 32 note polyphony is downright irritating. Digital is digital - but the technology is improving every year. The recordings submitted to the Mazurka e-cital that were made on digitals sound just fine - and some are exceptional. smile

I will chime in and thank the organizers profusely as well. I heard several Mazurkas that I never experienced before. So glad I had the opportunity to get in on this after I was unaware of it until too late.

56 1 Morodiene A most pleasnt intricale yet flowing piece, with dollops of light and shadeto bring it all together. Played with the requisite authority it comes over very well even for a non Chopin addict such as myself . . .(better get outa here quick!)

56 2 Carey You always give value for money, man! Love this one; it`s so strident and you give it loads of strength and character. How many times a month does the tuner get called in?

56 3 carey Hymn like with loads of dynamics and drama. This piece isn`t short. Dunno how you learn it all . . . .

59 1 Ganddalf It`s good to hear regulars who make a great showing on everything they do. Something for the rest of us to aspire to . .Here we have more key shifting stuff from Fred. He likes doing this and returning to the original by inventive means leaving us poor mortals with swollen brains and aching fingers. Well, me anyway. You obviously have no such problems . . .!

59 2 Musica 71 Did you do all these pieces in one sitting? Seperating them out for us to digest in swallowable amounts . . .! Nice and flowing; loved the LH melody and the quiet confidence exhuding form someone who knows what they`re doing. Brilliant piano!

59 3 Jeffreyjones Make way for The Beast! Swallows up all this music and comes back for more. And who better to feed it than you?

The complexities of Chopin`s mind have nearly done mine in . . . Think I`ll give the nocturnes a miss. Anybody up for a Rihanna recital? Robbie Williams? (Shrug crazy)

Thank you to the organizers of this themed recital. And thank you to all the performers. Although I did not comment individually, I listened to each and every submission. Some really lovely playing throughout!! Very enjoyable. It is immensely rewarding to listen to an entire group of themed works. It really gives a more in depth look at a composer. It's amazing that there are so many Mazurkas and yet each is unique!! I'm a big fan of Chopin already. These performances did nothing to diminish him!

I still haven't been able to listen to most of the recital but I'm working on it. I just wanted to comment on this very well played Bb major Mazurka.

I had to give it a listen because I still remember being defeated by this piece long ago. My teacher gave me this to play and I thought it would be cake but then completely and utterly failed to make anything of it. I was playing the notes but there was just nothing musical coming through. I couldn't make sense of it. To this day I refuse to play it. But I was happy to listen to your performance. First time I've heard it in a long time.

I bet all the Mazurkas have been avoided because of that one. Maybe a little bit of a trauma? I will try to get over it and listen to the rest. smile These kinds of miniatures can be so deceptively hard, at least for me.
