Waltz in A-flat major, B. 21 - Cinnamonbear
Clearly an early work of Chopin. I like his early works because you can hear his style in them waiting to be developed into the Chopin we all love.
I think you hit the nail the way you played it. Clear and jumpy. smile

Waltz in E major, B. 44 - Tim Adrianson
What a nice piece. Well played. The different themes are well glued together and I like the piano sound.

Waltz in E-flat major, B. 46 - Cinnamonbear
This is one of my favorite waltzes. It brings back memories from my childhood. My mother always played this on the stereo.
Love the sheetmusic presentation! But more importantly I'd buy this recording. You play this so well. The only 'surprise' was the long fermata in the middle somewhere. It sounded as if you got lost. Thank you for playing and sharing!

Waltz in E minor, B. 56 - dannylux
Wow. That's some energy. Technically demanding piece it seems. This is another waltz I don't know. It sounds as if you have a lot of fun with this piece. The arpeggios are convincing, although maybe to blurry. I experience the same with the fortissimo bass runs in the middle. But you make it work to fit it in the piece. I liked listening to your playing.

Waltz in E-flat major, B. 133 - maxmila
Lovely. This in my opinion should be last. The closing piece of this wonderful recital, to mull over the pieces played. smile
Well played.

Waltz in A minor, B. 150 - FSO
Personally, I'm not fond of interpretations like this. Don't take it personal please. I think the way you did it was really good. I'm certainly not able to play like you played this piece.
Thanks for sharing.

This concludes my comments on the pieces played. Thank you everyone for making this a killer recital. It was the first time for me and I will certainly joining more in the future (Tchaikovski is coming up!)

Also thanks to Joel for organizing this. Maybe it is indeed a good idea to sum all performances with their links in one post. That makes it easier to listen to the recordings for people not actively monitoring this thread.

Waltz in E minor, B. 56 - dannylux

This is a demanding piece and you make a lot out of it. I appreciate your great level of contrast and rubato playing. Nice job!

Waltz in E-flat major, B. 133 - maxmila

You play with great sensitivity. Excellent performance of the right hand “duetto” parts. Thanks for sharing this.

Waltz in A minor, B. 150 – FSO

Sounds like a pretty complex piece. Very interesting to notice the extra ornamentation you applied. Your performance reminded me a bit on Gypsy music.

Well, as PW member BDB said once, regarding recitals, "Those who don't know your mistakes don't need to be told, and those who do know your mistakes don't need to be reminded." And so, I can neither confirm nor deny, yet you will notice at that point in the visual presentation the sudden appearance of a penciled-in fermata, as the horse has mysteriously freed itself from the cart and grazes in bucolic serenity until finally coming to its senses, realizing that there is work yet to do, and so finishes the course. wink

I'm so glad that it brought you a measure of joy, though, chopinoholic! smile Please feel free to download the mp3: laugh

Hey everyone, I'm new here. Sorry to bring up this thread as I know it hasn't been used in a while. First, i'd like to say that I've listened to ALL of your recordings, and all I can say is that you all sound really talented. It is quite motivating to be honest, you all sound really good smile

Anyway, I just wanted to ask about this whole e-cital thing going on here. This has really interested me as it seems to be a great opportunity to share your music and get great feedback from others. I was just wondering how often this is done? or is it just a once-a-year thing?

I know I can post any recording that I wanted feedback on in the members' recording sub-forum, but I was just wondering about this activity, and how often it happens. Thanks in advance, and keep up the great work, all of you!

Hi Pover and thanks for listening smile
There's one coming up in November, a recital of Suites. Members are playing either a full suite, or teaming up with another member to do a few movements each. That thread is available near the top of Pianist's Corner.
Over at the Adult Beginners Forum there are quarterly recitals. Those are not restricted to beginners. The comments tend to be more positive/encouraging and brief than the constructive criticism over here.

Fauré, Preludes Op. 103
Beethoven trios for an original ballet

Hey hreichgott, thanks for your answer. smile

I guess suites are too early for me as of now, since i'd rather learn a whole suite instead of just a few pieces from it. So basically, there are 2 recitals per year in the pianist's corner?

And I don't mind being criticized. On the contrary, it is very much appreciated, especially since i'm self-taught. About the ABF recitals, I just went over there to check them, but I only found the tchaikovsky themed recital. Do they propose a new themed recital every 3 months or am I missing something? Because in a thread discussing that upcoming recital, people were talking about all kinds of pieces; Beethoven, Mozart, and others. Thanks in advance for your help smile

P.S: I don't think you love Beethoven more than i do laugh

I do. grin

About themed recitals: the last three before the Tchaikovsky one have been the Mendelssohn Songs Without Words recital, run by Rostosky, the Chopin Mazurka recital, run by me, and this Nocturne and Waltz recital, run by JoelW.

I guess we'll get to be good friends :P

So basically, the themed recitals extend over both sub-forums? I don't mind posting anything on the pianist's corner. I actually prefer getting criticized so I get a better idea of what to work on.

I was just reading something about open ABF recitals in which people post ANYTHING they want to record. They said submissions open in May, which is few days from now. Can I upload - for instance - Chopin's waltz in b minor (op 69 no 2) there and get feedback on it? Or are most pieces usually lost in the flood of submissions? Also, do advanced pianists check out those recitals or is it usually based solely around AB's?

Too many question I know hahahah :P i hope you find time to get back to me laugh

The recitals in the pianist corner come up whenever someone gets an idea in their head to organize it. Some have even been hosted off-site.

I see. So these are independent recitals and do not interfere with ABF themed or free recitals? Oh, and can you please point me to where some members host these recitals off-site? I think it'd be interesting to see what programs you guys come up with. I can probably learn a lot by hearing other non-professionals (not that i'm even half that good, lol) play and compare recordings, etc.

Pover: these e-citals are great motivators and I have learned a lot in the past year+ since I first participated in my first (the Mendelssohn). I don't do the ABF quarterly recitals usually, but people do listen and if you request feedback you will get some.

I like the themed recitals because then there's usually a group of music by one composer where you really get to hear it all at once. Sure I could do this on youtube with random recordings, but to participate with other people that I at least sort of know on a forum helps to form bonds with those people, I think.

Several of the E-citals we've had have been hosted HERE

The PW member that runs the site isn't very active anymore and some of the links cause the flash player to crash. Among other things, there are 3 recitals devoted to obscure composers, a Liszt recital, a Beethoven recital, and (no doubt) some Chopin-y thing.

Yes, those are the abf quarterly recitals. You can certainly upload that waltz! And there are pianists of many different levels involved in ABF, including some professionals.
People usually go out of their way to listen to and comment on as many submissions as they can.

As for the themed recitals, they happen whenever someone feels like organizing one.

Looking forward to hearing your playing.

Wow laugh thank you all for your helpful responses and encouragement! I guess I'll participate in the quarterly ABF recital then. Hopefully I won't be a major disappointment :P Maybe next year I'll try a themed recital... Has anyone organized a beethoven one? I think it'd be a great idea.

Anyway, thank you very much for your help, seems like I'll be contributing here for some time then smile
