paul1971, welcome to PW!!! I think you should participate in ABF Recital. It's a unique experience.

I will probably submit another piece from the Einaudi's "In a Time Lapse" album. It will not be anything "too worked" once I've been very busy lately.

So it took 33 recitals to reach the point where you are prepared? I've got that to look forward to - only 13 more recitals and I can be prepared too!

In need to get myself a recording device in time. The audio from my camcorder is just to bad (or I don't know how to place it properly).

Don't let that stop you. My bad zoom provided a dandy distraction from my bad playing. wink


Slow down and do it right.

Happy unbirthday Sam! Where in Georgia are you anyway? I'm in Clemson (as in Tigers) SC.

Happy Belated Birthday, Sam!

Well, I thought I was in great shape for this recital and was feeling good about my piece, until I had my first lesson after the six week holiday break. Of course, my teacher suggested lots of changes. So, I incorporated those and made my first recordings today. It is back to the drawing board. I am not quite there yet… Maybe I should just stop listening to Barenboim's recording of it. cry

Happy Birthday, Sam!

After all I'm not sure about what to send to the recital... I think it's the first time I have many pieces to choose from smile

Thanks Frycek - I'm in a tiny town southwest of Atlanta. But I'm very familiar with Clemson since I was born in SC, down in the low country.
