DISCLAIMER:
==================

I was able to listen to all of the recordings in this recital and comment on them.

Everyone did a great job and it is impressive to see such diversity of interests and talents coming together.

I continue to learn and develop as a pianist and I am still new to it. I don't feel like I am particularly qualified to make comments, having only been playing for three years. So - I hope everyone will take my comments with a grain of salt. They are not authoritative!

Best regards to all.

My first comments , thank yous to follow.

01. Amaruk - Comptine d'ete No. 1
Fine work Amaruk on a very engaging piece, especially as you had to work it out by ear first.
Great start to the recital and I must admit your video made me smile, in fact laugh out loud when you turned, smiled and waved up at "Amelie". Excellent.

02. SwissMS/Doris - Sonatina in A Minor Allegro & Andante
I really enjoyed your performance. I am not familiar with Kuhlau and I don't usually listen to this era of music but this was an engaging piece which you managed to bring to life. I look forward to hearing the 3rd movement.

04. Peyton - Morning Passages
Three fubs in 6+ minutes of music, don't think you should beat yourself up :-). I usually find the first take is the best and this sounds fresh and like you are really in the moment, powerful performance Peyton, one of your best I think.

06. RedKat - Melody Op.47 n.3
I think someone else commented on how modern this sounded and I agree, you create a beautiful flow to the music and a feeling of yearning, quiet lovely.

07. Richard (zrtf90) - Une Larme (A Tear)
Can't say much other than that was fantastic, a perfect evocation of the title.

08. JimF - La fille aux cheveux de lin
I found this quite stunning and I think I am going to have to have a go at this, Yes Jim you are definitly a pianist.

09. Inlanding - Glen - Indaco Intro w/ improvisation
The idea of improvising on written pieces appeals to me, it makes the performance truly unique to the performer. As usual Glen this was a beautifully paced, relaxed performance. Sorry to hear you are still restricted by your shoulder injury, hope you get back soon.

10. newbert - Baby Grand
Really good newbert , you maintained the tempo well with a nice even tone ,you obviously enjoyed playing this. Bet you wish you hadn't had that 45-50 years off, well done.

Some more thoughts for today. Each of the performances was great. I liked the variety of styles, not only classical but also some jazz, some church hymns, a folk dance. I'm really enjoying listening to other pianists perform. It makes me feel a part of a great community and group of friends!


54. ajames - Special Moments The piece does convey the feeling of romantic emotion. I like it a lot and will look for that book because it seems appropriate for my level. Your performance was lovely!

53. ElaineAllegro - Mozart Sonata K332 2nd movement-adagio I love the sound of your grand piano. Very bright! I like the tempo and the feeling of the piece as well. You flowed quickly as you continued playing the piece. Very lively! Great job!

52. dynamobt/Marilyn - La fille aux cheveux de lin I like how this piece is mellow and soft. It has a relaxing aspect to it, almost making you reflect on life. The performance was solid and smooth.

51. Copper - Album for the Young 1. Melody I'm not familiar with Schumann, but I really enjoyed the simplicity of this piece. It felt as the title describes, childish, innocent. I liked the tempo being slow yet happy. Nice work!

50. Ataru074 - K330, I, Allegro Moderato Wow, so complex! Very dynamic Mozart piece. I loved the changes from piano to forte and back to piano. I find those sixteenth notes throughout the song very impressive.

49. noobpianist90 (Aditya) - Minuet in G Major BWV Anh. 116 Love the staccatos throughout the piece. You really brought the song to life with the stops. Also, the feeling of playfulness with a bit of royalty is great!

48. PaleBlueDot - Invention #8 To me it doesn't feel as if the recording was made by an iphone at all smile Good rhythm all around. You are really great for having just 9 months of returning. This piece looks complex so it is very impressive! Very nice!

47. EdTek - When Sunny Gets Blue Ooohhh jazz! My favorite music genre! Love the chords in that song. And the melody is fluid. You play it very smooth and with feeling. I assume by 4 you mean 4 months playing. For 4 months it is great! Keep it up!

46. stumbler/Dave - Solitude no. 1 Masterful performance. I really liked the dynamics. The legato is amazing! I really hope to someday play like you do smile

45. verqueue - Beethoven - Piano Sonata no. 8 op. 13 "Pathetique" II. Adagio cantabile Your version of the Pathetique is really nice. Dynamics are excellent. It is probably my favorite classical piece and you performed it admirably! Great!

44. wjf - Song for My Father Great rhythm in this piece. The chords are great. You have much control for being a somewhat faster song. The accompaniment makes the song feel fresh and different. Melody is very nice!

43. Silver Keys - (1) Minuet in C; (2) Minuet in Rondo Form Yours is a great example that age does not matter when you wish to learn the piano. Both pieces were great. You maintain good tempo and if you were sightreading the piece your skills are really good. Nice job!

42. Yamaha G3 & P-80, Mike White - Chrysanthemums Your sightreading skills are really good. I wish I could sightread like that. I think the piece flowed really well and loved the mellow feeling it portrayed. Lovely!

41. gingko2 - Joc cu Bata (Stick Dance) No. 1 From Six Romanian Folk Dances, Sz. 56 Very interesting piece. I liked how you performed it in a medium tempo and flowed slower, becoming more melodic and legato (which IMO is a good thing). I had never heard it before but I enjoyed it a lot. Thanks!

40. Joybug - Nearer My God To Thee I love this hymn! I like the way your performance invokes reflection and thought. I enjoyed how fluid it sounds and how it makes you forget where you are for a moment. Very enjoyable!

Many thanks for your kind and positive comments on my submission; Anne H, SwissMs, Jotur ,AZ_Astro , JimF ,Peyton , Amaruk , Peterws , torquenale , Riddler , casinitaly , Inlanding & MaryBee and thankyou for listening.

Amaruk - The pictures of the city at the end of the video are of Newcastle upon Tyne , I am 3 miles from there , the other places , mostly Northumberland and Durham are all within 15-60 minutes drive. The first couple of pictures are of Hadrians Wall, built 2000 years ago by the Romans and which stretches across the whole of the north of England (80 miles). I think they decided they couldn't tame the Scots so built a wall to keep them out.

Ed - The HP507 has a 6 speaker system and really does sound fantastic in the flesh, as you suggest the recorded sound doesn't do it justice, just like an accoustic I suppose.

14. jotur- Cathy, it's funny, but as a kid (into the Doors, ELP, Hendrix etc.) The Shadow of your Smile" was in "The old person's radio". But now I hear you play it and realize what a truly beautiful song/melody it is. And thanks for sharing all your insights on the piece.

15. Pikapianist- What an absolutely lovely piece. And your playing is impeccable. I enjoyed listening to and watching you play. That Kawai is fantastic too.

16. Riddler- Pretty awesome my friend! I couldn't begin to figure where you "cobbled" and what was written. I just enjoyed it all. Great playing.

01. Amaruk, Comptine d'ete No. 1: You make this lovely piece sound easy. Great video too, so many little details like superimposing the "Bechstein" logo.

11. Greener / Jeff Green, Medleytango: I love tangos. Such challenging rhythms, but you've mastered these.

21. outo, Keyboard Sonata d minor K9: Nice tempo, similar to the recording I have. Your tone and articulation are just right for this piece.

31. pianonewbie1, Pilgrims' Chorus: Beautifully played. I usually avoid mixing strings or chorus with piano, but your choice really works on this one.

41. gingko2, Joc cu Bata (Stick Dance) No. 1 From Six Romanian Folk Dances, Sz. 56: Nice touch, not sharp or bangy at all. I look forward to listening to the others in the series.

51. Copper, Album for the Young 1. Melody: Lovely little piece, sensitively played.

I'll add in my two cents: Wow!

Although I've only been playing for a little more than a year, I've been a jazz fan for a very long time, and to me this is what I love about this type of music. All of the emotions are there: reflection, angst, strength, heartbreak?, etc. I'm guessing that if I listened to this a few more times (which I will) I could probably figure out what this piece is mostly about.

I'm also in awe at your finger control on the 16th and (32nd?) note passages.

Of the 200+ small pieces I've learned so far, only one has reminded me of your composition, and it was one of my favorites.

Consider me a fan smile

Jotur, earlofmar, Anne H, AZ_Astro, Giancarlo Robles, thank you for your warm encouragement. I means a lot to me to be able to share with you.

earlofmar, I find it difficult coming up with names. Solitude seemed to suit the mood. So far there is only the one. I gave it a number so I can reuse the name in future.

Giancarlo Robles, I used the pedal a lot for the legato.

31. pianonewbie1 - "Pilgrims' Chorus" Very nice improvised arrangement. You had a nice feel for this piece, filling it with emotion. Great job!

32. WimPiano - C.P.E. Bach - Marche (BWV Anh. 122) I really like this Bach piece. Your articulation was nice and crisp, and you gave it the happy marching feeling it calls for. Great playing.

33. Sand Tiger - Between Raindrops I can hear the sad raindrops in this piece, like teardrops. This is a very nice composition with a haunting melody that stays with the listener. I really liked it.

34. joangolfing - Funeral March I am sorry to hear about the passing of your teacher. She would have appreciated this, I am sure. Your dynamic contrasts are great, and add to the emotion of the piece. Very nicely played. Good luck in the Piano Festival!

35. CarlosCC - Sky You are definitely developing your own style, apart from Einaudi. This is a lovely composition, very relaxing, with a hint of strength of hope. It speaks to the resilience of the spirit. Wonderful work, Carlos!

36. Andy Platt - Liebestraume No. 3 I love this piece. It is in my someday pile. You do a lovely job pacing the piece, giving it the calm, quiet that the title represents. Really nice playing on this challenging piece!

37. torquenale (Alessandra) - Le Petit Negre This first time I heard this piece, I was surprised it was Debussy. Clearly jazz had an influence on his composing. You perform this very playfully, and the result is really fun! I like the light articulation you give it. Great job!

38. (Was)TrueBeginner - Footsteps on Autumn Leaves I admire your ability to compose. This is a really wonderful effort. I enjoyed it very much.

39. BrianDX - Lunar Eclipse This is a very dramatic piece. I like your expression, and the balance between the melody and accompaniment. Nice work for 14 months!

40. Joybug - Nearer My God To Thee Great first submission! You have captured the song well. You held good rhythm, and paced the melody well.

41. gingko2 - Joc cu Bata (Stick Dance) No. 1 From Six Romanian Folk Dances, Sz. 56 Bartok is never easy, but you do an excellent job with this. The crisp articulation works well, and you have captured the spirit of a Romanian dance.

42. Yamaha G3 & P-80, Mike White - Chrysanthemums I am not familiar with this composer, so thanks for the introduction. You played this with strength and expression. Nice job.

43. Silver Keys - (1) Minuet in C; (2) Minuet in Rondo Form Two very sweet minuets! You have a nice light touch for this genre. The second one sounds very well paced.

44. wjf - Song for My Father Very nice job arranging this. I really enjoyed it.

45. verqueue - Beethoven - Piano Sonata no. 8 op. 13 "Pathetique" II. Adagio cantabile I love Pathetique! It is my someday piece. You do a lovely job with this adagio. You give a very sensitive, gentle touch that just makes it sing. Brava!

46. stumbler/Dave - Solitude no. 1 This is a lovely composition. I love the solitude of it, and the gentle placing. Great job!

06. RedKat - Melody Op.47 n.3 I liked the haunting melody of this piece, and your performance is great!

07. Richard (zrtf90) - Une Larme (A Tear) The beautiful sadness of this piece, heard here for the first time, touched my heart, thanks to the sensible way you play it. Thanks for sharing!

08. JimF - La fille aux cheveux de lin it's always difficult to perform a well-known and popular piece like this one. I liked the way you express the subtle nuances of it. Bravo!

09. Inlanding - Glen - Indaco Intro w/ improvisation I don't know the original version of the piece, but yours sound very... Einaudi. Introspective and relaxing: I liked it a lot. Good job!

10. newbert - Baby Grand Great song, great performance. I like the blues in it!

02. SwissMS/Doris, Sonatina in A Minor Allegro & Andante: The first movement is very familiar, on rooting around through my sheet music I finally found it in and old RCM book. This is the first time I have heard it played correctly. The andante is new to me. Your playing is beautifully phrased.

12. Mr Super-Hunky, Nights in White Satin: Great arrangement, you really made this your own.

22. Daren, Pavane: Nicely played. Subtle dynamics. Masterful how you kept the melody in front of the harmony even while playing pianissimo.

32. WimPiano, C.P.E. Bach - Marche (BWV Anh. 122): You've come a long way in a little over a year. You nailed the the detached playing of the bass notes. Nice phrasing in the right hand. Good trills. Steady tempo. Perhaps those repeated left hand notes need a little more practice to sound fluent.

42. Yamaha G3 & P-80, Mike White, Chrysanthemums: Great sight reading for such a challenging work. It is a beautiful piece---that comes through in your playing. I hope you intend to practice it up to full performance level, as I would love to hear it again.

52. dynamobt/Marilyn, La fille aux cheveux de lin: What a lush recording. Well played. I think your rubato is just right. Lovely dynamics. Congrats.

03. wouter79, KV570, allegretto (III): delightful texture.

13. Monica K., Tracce: Piano World introduced me to Einaudi. I love it that there is always at least one Einaudi piece in each recital. I agree this is haunting. I also feel a sadness, almost a sense of doom. Well played.

23. Ganddalf, Intermezzo no.2: I can hear the craftsmanship. It is a lovely piece, sensitively played.

33. Sand Tiger, Between Raindrops: This has almost a renaissance feel to it.

43. Silver Keys, (1) Minuet in C; (2) Minuet in Rondo Form: welcome to the recitals. Great start. Good dynamics on the Mozart. Good tempo on the Rameau.

53. ElaineAllegro, Mozart Sonata K332 2nd movement-adagio: You brought a nice delicacy to this piece. I enjoyed listening.

26 Chopinaholic Mighty fine piano and recording here, man. You`ll be a front runner for one of the cash prizes . . smile Magnifique!

27 CasinItaly These sound Baroque-ish. The first was enjoyable and fairly light as Baroque pieces go. The second, well, I can`t play "Adagio" . . .some pre church service music will utilize this sort of thing. But it isn`t a barrel o` laughs! You handled it well, however and deserve much credit for this. Well done.

28 EarlofMar I know what you mean about Satie. A free agent, and you too! You exhuded this movement and gave it it`s own slightly melancholy sound.

29 Alexander Borro Not being aware of the original, this sounds excellent. Great work on a gorgeous sounding piano.

31 Pianonewbie Plenty of good work, and dynamics in this. Your bass lines came through well, you`re learning fast!

32 Wimpiano You`ll know now how hard it can is to smooth out those intermixing LH and RH parts! You`re on the correct path and have made terrific progress for the time you`ve had. Excellent.

33 SandTiger Never rains in S California . . .it does now! Rain isn`t a happy event where I liove (although we`ve had a dry time for the past few years) and your piece reflects that. Very enjoyable and capably handled!

34 Joan Golfing Always up for a bit o` Mozart.. he had a keen sense of humour, and it shows in his music. This was to me a bit different. . . .Very well done by yourself however.

35 CarlosCC wELL PUT TOGETHER. yOUR PIANO SOUNDS UP THERE WITH THE BEST AND IS AN EXZCELLENT VEHICLE FOR THIS. lOVELY CHORD VARIATION AT 1.50, MODERN GENRE. rtEALLY LIKED THIS. Sorry about my bl**dy typing . .

36 Andy Platt There` a heck of a lot of stuff here which you did darned well. Iv` only ever done the easy bit . . . Congrats!

20. barbaram - Barbara - Nefeli - while it somewhat irks me to have to say something nice about the over-exposed Einaudi laugh this is a really striking piece of music and you played it strikingly well!

Note to OHIO_MARK:

I never did actually find out who in the world Alexander Morovsky was - I feel fairly certain however that "he" was either Alfred (of Alfred Publishing) or the great Wanda Landowsky - but I have no hard evidence to establish either as Alex. If you find out let me know...

37 Torquenale Starts out as ragtime . . .This is an unusual piece of music, bright and animated. Now, who started this stuff, Debussy or Joplin? The mind boggles. You certaimly know your stuff. Excellent!

38 Was True Beginner Another new composition, a rad sad. Very good chord sequences here, this sounded well. Keep `em comin` man.

39 Brian DX there are folk her doing great and wonderful things. You`re one of `em , ,. , This work had atmosphere typical of the modern genre of piano music, you played it with a relaxed feel. nice work, man!

40 Joybug Of the many variations of this hymn, this is my favourite. Played asa the Titanic went down, it has a poignant reminder of our mortality and you do a splendid job with it!

41 gingko2 Well executed. This moved light on its feet as intended and created a nice atmosphere.

Sorry to be so slow on these. Gonna take some days at this rate....

09. Inlanding - Glen - Indaco Intro w/ improvisation I liked your improv take on this new-age tune. Thought you gave it an interest level that I usually don’t get from his stuff.

10. newbert - Baby Grand Good job with this, you gave it a nice bluesy feel. It is tough for me to get the right feel when I have something in my head as a duet. You do a great job overcoming that and turning this into a nice piano solo.

11. Greener / Jeff Green - Medleytango Nice job, Jeff. I like the “foreign” feel of this music. Reminds me a little of Granados/Albeniz. Your European piano party experience is showing.

12. Mr Super-Hunky - Nights in White Satin I was anticipating something totally different, Mr. S-H, and was completely taken by your creation here. It seems like almost a south American/latin feel to me. Bravo. A very creative arrangement and beautifully played.

13. Monica K. - Tracce Great job controlling those dynamics. Thought you did a wonderful job with that Eflat-Gflat. Beautiful phrasing. A really nice performance.

14. jotur/Cathy Turner - The Shadow of Your Smile Another submission I was anticipating greatly. What a nice clean take. I love your rock solid rhythm and the understated, cool, calm playing style. I have played this and have a tendency to schmaltz it up near the climax, but you stay on a pretty even, and effective, level throughout, using the phrases in the music itself to make your point. Very nice work, Cathy.

15. PikaPianist - Salut d'Amour (Love's Greeting) I loved this piece the first time I heard it….which was just now. Played so beautifully…you have a marvelous touch. You bring that melody out front and center and keep those accompaniment notes so nice and quiet. Thank you for a terrific performance.

16. Riddler (Ed) - Warsaw Concerto Very dramatic right from the start. Sounds great on your piano, Ed. The music has a familiar ring, but I’m not about to admit I remember it from childhood. I always admire how controlled your playing sounds, but in a way that allows for plenty of expression. Really enjoyed it.
