Based on the feedback I have received I have decided to call for an e-cital where the subject is "Suites".

It is now up to you to choose a suite from whichever era (Baroque, classical, romantic, modern...) you want. This can be any composition with "Suite" in the title. I think we should also open for Bach partitas, the French Ouverture of Bach and other "suites" containing the common movements (Allemande, Courante, Sarabande etc.)

Those of you who want to participate, please decide what you want to play and inform me through a PM. I'll open a thread where I make a list of selected works and keep it updated.

I propose November 3rd (Monday) as the deadline. I prefer not to receive audio or video files, but just links to box, YouTube or whatever. You decide if you wish to make a video or just an audio recording.

I suggest that we open for playing parts of the suite, but it would be desirable if the whole suite is played. Collaboration projects are welcome.

And here is the list of selected pieces. I'll try to update this list daily as long as I get new submissions. I prefer to have a PM with the submission. Since the suite literature is huge I don't provide an empty list, but just name the ones selected.

J.S.Bach

English Suite no.2 - FarmGirl
Partita no.3 - Ganddalf

Interesting idea. The submissions will be practically all either Baroque or 20th century (if people dare to play the modern ones). I'll have to mull it over. It's likely that I'll do either Debussy's Suite Bergamasque or Bartok's Petite Suite.

I would love to do Debussy's Suite Bergamasque, and I think it might be musical (in my hands) by Nov. 3

However, JeffryJones... if you want it you can have it.

Ok. In case several people are interested in the same work I'll follow the "first come - first served" principle. This refers to incoming PMs.

To make it more open, we could do suites and variations?

I second this. I think you could generate a bunch more interest if you included Variations! laugh

I know you have a deep affinity for the Sarabande wink grin , but I was hoping you'd play Ravel Miroirs for us! grin LOL! Seriously! I was hoping in my hope of hopes you would say, "Ravel. Miroirs." grin But, come to think of it, I don't think we've ever heard you play Bach! That will be a real treat, Kuanpiano! thumb

Would you like to share Tombeau with me? (a few movements each, your pick who gets which)

No, please go ahead.. I actually have a better idea for myself. I'm most comfortable with Romantic period music, so I'll do Grieg - From Holberg's Time.

I've loved From Holberg's Time since I heard Antonio Pompa-Baldi play it to a huge ovation at Oberlin. It's tender, touching and full of graceful turns of phrase. I'll have my work cut out for me navigating Grieg's thick writing to arrive at the elegance within.

I'm overwhelmed by the response so far. What is interesting, indeed, is that so many of you have picked works from the 20th century.

It has been suggested also to include "Variations" in this e-cital. This is, of course, a possibility. I suspect, however, that it will be long enough if we stick to "Suites" this time. What is your opinion?

Important notice to all participants:

I try to keep the list of chosen pieces up to date. There is, however, a risk that I make omissions or other mistakes. Therefore I urge you to check the list to verify that your own piece has been included, and that composer, work title and participant nickname is correctly written.

I agree. More than enough material in suites and the variations could be its own event in the future.

Ganddalf, a spelling correction on my entry -- It's "En Languedoc" (not En Langeudoc).

Hm, my fingers seem to be a bit dyslectic. Wonder if the piano playing is to blame....

I'll correct this next time I edit the list.

With regards to Ravel's Tombeau, which is split between hreichgott and ScriabinAddict, are you guys playing all of the pieces just between you two, or is there room for another to squeeze in for one of the pieces?

I have studied the two pieces from Feinberg's Suite No. 1, Op. 11 -- Etude no. 1 and no. 4.
I think it will be more than ample time for me to learn the other two pieces. smile
Please sign me up for Feinberg's Suite No. 1!

Would the Bach Italian Concerto count (since it's not really a concerto)?
