My first submission (in a themed recital) was, what, two years ago now?

Lots of improvement since then! In fact the improvement in everyones' play is there to see over time.

Just participating has taught me to work through the details of recording and get used to that process. Plus we listen to our own play much more closely.

It's all good!

Me too ...
Another piece recorded now. Normally that would mean another piece in the line up, but I'm afraid this one will need considerable more work and will remain in practice for quite some time.

Everyone from 44 and up will jump a spot this evening. I know I will need to accept issues with my recording, but the one submitted last night has far too many. I will do better this evening ... is the goal now.

What a great line up, again. I'm looking forward to another great show.

Mandy, good for you for sticking with it. One thing you will probably realize eventually is that most of us are never all that satisfied with our submissions. Your adult beginner ear has been a discerning judge of music all your life, whereas your playing skills are just starting out. This gap will likely always be present.....well at least for me it will. Nothing for it but to get on with things and give yourself some slack.

Well done for getting your submission in thumb

I had to look that one up!

I'd say that was improbable in the extreme. :-)

Somehow, I get the feeling that your experience was not unique. :-)

OK, several dumb questions coming.

First, I just submitted a piece (must have been a moment of insanity, I've been only at this for 10 months).

The confirmation email that I got back does not reference what "number" I am. Is that coming later?

Next, (wait for it...) what happens next?

I can answer part of it:

> The confirmation email that I got back does not reference what "number" I am. Is that coming later?

Go to http://recitals.pianoworld.com/ and click the "Show me..." link in the following line near the top of the page: "There are currently 49 submitted pieces. Show me..."

That will bring up a numbered list of submissions. You are currently #49, but that can change if somebody deletes a piece prior to yours.

As to what happens next, I assume the recital gets added to the others (here) and made live.

Oh, and you have 11% more experience than I do. :-)

Yep, in total. Back in the Pleistocene I played clarinet, but that's been so long ago that I no longer list it as an instrument that I can play. It also means that I knew the treble clef but was clueless on the bass clef. Since that era, I've had a rewarding career, children, and even grandchildren. Also, of course, the glaciers have finally receded. Now I play the piano. A little bit. :-)

I'm in at no. 50!

A fatigued recording, with a mistake here and there. But I'm pretty satisfied with the result though. It still needs work, but this draws a good picture of where I am now with the progress. grin

Yes, save for the artwork on the lid. That was done by a local artist (Gale Whitman) here in Fort Collins. The usual figure quoted for this project is 400 hours, and that's probably accurate. And that's not to say that it can be completed in ten 40-hour weeks. It's more like a one-year project, especially if you also have a full-time job. Among other things, you have to wait for glue and seemingly countless layers of hand-rubbed enamel to dry.

Next project up is a clavichord (1782 Hubert) but I'm still waiting on parts.

Tom


I look forward to hearing the harpsichord this recital and hopefully the clavichord in a future one.

Since I'm now in at no 50 I assume Greener got a better recording. Unfortunately I don't think rerecording mine will help as each time I record I seem to manage to put extra mistakes in.

I'm in at number 52 with Overture of The Marriage of Figaro by Mozart smile
Bad timing and dynamics! I have done about 10 takes!! Either the dynamics are good but the timing suffer, or the opposite, or got them done OK but pressing the last key wrong or a combination of the three!
Excellent experience and a good musical mirror reflecting our true ability laugh

10 months is plenty.

Next? Something wonderful!
