Hello Ganddalf! I am not ready with my Mendelssohn, or at least not ready to record anyway. It has been both a pleasure and a nightmare working on it for several months now, but I will not have it ready in time for the deadline. I am sorry. I do hope to have it polished in time for performance at summer school and will post a recording to Pianoworld later in the year. It's a wonderful, but even harder than I anticipated, piece...! It's 90% there, and experience tells me the next phase of working on it will simply take time for everything to sink in and therefore for me to start to perform, rather than just get around on the edge of my seat, the whole work.

As for my Chopin Berceuse, I have been piano-less for the last couple of weeks (complex situation involving a new house and new neighbours who are less than sympathetic to noise) but will try and get a recording at a lesson, festival or on a friend's piano by the deadline.

Tl;dr summary: please take the Mendelssohn Variations Serieuses off the list for me, and I will get the link for the Chopin to you as requested by the new deadline.

Ta,

Pam

Hi Ganddalf, I think I'm going to withdraw my Mozart Variations off the list too. I've only gotten the first 7 variations done but I haven't polished them to my own standard to post.

Ganddalf - What kind of production values are you expecting? I was just going to iPhone myself and have my son edit out the bits where I turn it on and off. It's a 6S, so not too bad. The playing should be at least quite moderate-to-moderate, but I am taking it seriously.

Ok, it is your decision. It would have been acceptable if you played only the first 7 variations, but since you don't feel prepared I take you out of the list. I hope that you'll be able to present the whole set on another occasion.

No special requirements. Of course, a better recording will give a better impression of your performance. I'm using a Zoom device myself. It doesn't produce top quality recordings, but just ok for the purpose.

I'll do mine once I've gotten my home piano tuned. The instrument we have at church has become impossible to maintain, unfortunately, it just falls right off within 24 hours of tuning.

Hmm... I suppose I will try to see if I can manage a recording of the first 6 or 7 variations then. Sorry for all the trouble! I will let you know if I succeed.

No problem! I'm going to accept any relevant submission even if they haven't been signed up for. The main objective of the sign-up list is to give people the chance to select pieces that are not taken by anybody else.

I'm close to being ready for submission but unfortunately attempting to record has revealed where I'm weak with the music.

Maybe I've completely missed it, but where is the submission thread? How do we submit? I see the baroque submission thread in the ABF but I seem to be missing where the submission thread is for this recital?

I am closing in on it, and will take every smidgeon of practice time that I can afford up to the deadline before recording. I am learning to love my metronome. It is a multi-faceted and complex relationship.

Store your file (audio or video) on a public domain on the internet (e.g. box.com, youtube.com) and send me a PM with a link. As an option you may also give me some written information about the music, composer etc.

Well known phenomenon. But it has a good side as it helps you focus on the right things at the polishing stage.

I have a rough take of the Brahms-Handel, but I am not confident in my ability to improve on it. The past two weeks have been extremely rough on me and I've had little time at the keyboard. I still hope to submit the Grieg and may still read through the Faure to introduce new people to this wonderful piece.

Unfortunately I am still dealing with a protracted health issue and will not be able to submit my recording.

I've made a lot of practice recordings and seem to be closing in on a final recording. There are some seriously hairy spots that I'm still making progress on so I'm expecting a somewhat last minute recording as my best shot.

Having the privilege to listen to the submitted pieces prior to the "publishing" date I can assure you that this is going to be a great event. I'm impressed by all the talent out there.

Will try to get my son to record the Mozart this evening. If I have to wait until tomorrow, what time is the deadline? Will it be based on GMT (Zulu)?

If you people in the US need a few extra hours I may be flexible. But you will not appear in the first batch then. After all the deadline was initially April 1st, and later changed to April 5th.

CET - Central European Time. I'm not going to be strict with the deadline, but will be grateful if I have all submissions tomorrow evening (CET).

Accompanying text is optional. About the music, your own interpretation, your instrument, NOT flaws and issues in your performance - if you don't mention it, there's good chance that it goes undetected....

Everyone, please check that the updated list is correct!

The first set of pieces will be appear shortly. Since some of you have contributed with several pieces I have tried to arrange the pieces in a way that the same pianist performs no more than once in each set. Also I try to make a mix between baroque, classical, romantic and modern pieces.

Performers in the first set will be Tim Adrianson, nhpianos, Schubertian, Cinnamonbear, Pathbreaker and Musica71.

It is still possible to submit pieces for those of you who are late, but today (wherever in the world you are) is the last chance.

The first movement of Mozart K331 has been taken by SiFi. Otherwise I would have accepted a late submission. But there will be new themed recitals to come....

As far as I can see I have now "published" all submitted pieces, and consider my job with this to be finished.I haven't been able to listen properly to all performances yet, but I'll do that and give my feedback to everyone.

Then comes the question about a new themed e-cital. Do anybody have any ideas about a new theme? A specific composer? Other ideas?

Hello Ganddalf and all,
I just want to apologise for failing to deliver a performance. My new-to-me piano was only delivered on Tuesday, and whilst I was hoping to get a recording just in time for the deadline, new neighbour noise issues (and therefore the time that I am 'allowed' to actually play) prevented me from doing so. I am embarrassed to have promised and not delivered on either of my submissions frown
But I am looking forward to listening to everyone else's and congratulations Ganddalf on putting together a superb-looking recital.

Ta,
Pam

Hi, Ganddalf! Regarding the discussion of new e-cital themes: I think it's well worth itemizing what e-cital themes have occurred already over the past 2-3 years, for the sake of those who haven't previously participated, or only recently joined:

1 "Unsung heroes" (rarely heard composers)
2 Suites
3 Chopin Mazurkas
4 Chopin Waltzes
5 Robert Schumann
6 Fugues; polyphonic compositions
7 Baroque (just completed), and, of course,
8 Theme and Variations -- have I missed any?

Here are some of my thoughts:

1 Choose one common piano solo form, such as "Prelude"; "Etude"; "Sonatina"; "Nocturne", "Ballade", "Waltz" etc.

2 Simply invite each participant to supply their favorite composition(s) for solo piano, or perhaps a couple.

3 A focus on "the dance"; i.e., piano pieces which are specifically dance form, or evoke the dance (ballet, for example).

4 If a specific composer, I think Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, or Schubert could work, much as was done for Schumann and Chopin.

5 Finally, pick one arbitrary timeframe in which the compositions were written -- like 1810 - 40, or 1900 - 30 for example -- and see what the participants come up with.

Looking forward to other opinions!

Under rhe ABF forum I have also participated in full sets of Grieg, Lyric Pieces, Tsjajkovski's piano works and Mendelssohn's Songs without Words.

I wouldn't object if one of the previous themes was repeated, but something new would be nice, of course.

Tim's suggestions are all interesting. I have a few thoughts myself.

Impressionism.

Shostakovich

Haydn sonatas

But I'm open to everrything.

I'm sure it's the infernal decaf, but could someone kindly direct the village idiot to the link that permits access to recordings for this recital? Many thanks!

You find links to the recordings in 5 different threads under this forum. Just check "Theme with variations" e-cital Part 1 through 5. The first posts under each thread contains the recordings. Then come posts with comments to the music.

In the Member Recording Forum interest has been sparked for a possible Spanish/Latin America e-cital. Any interest in that?

For me to participate in such an e-cital, I'll need some help picking a piece that is doable for me.

Mompou's music poses little technical difficulty, with the exception of the Variations on a Theme of Chopin. You could also play Scarlatti, as he spent much of his career in the service of the Spanish royal family.

Hi, Ganddalf -- a few suggestions:

1 Enrique Granados wrote 12 Spanish Dances, in 2 Volumes. The Volume 1 Dances are technically less difficult than Volume 2; if you haven't played any of them before, I'd recommend Volume 1, although a couple of my personal favorites are from Volume 2.

2 A fair amount of Isaac Albeniz solo piano music is in the intermediate/early advanced range of technical difficulty: the Suite Espanola, Chants d'Espagne; and Recuerdos de Viaje piano suites are good examples.

3 Some of Joaquin Turina's solo piano music is technically accessible -- as I write this, I'm looking over his Danses Gitanes, Op 55, and that strikes me as being in the Late Intermediate/Early Advanced technical level. I'd say the same thing for his earlier Album de Viaje -- challenging, but not actually as difficult as it sounds.

4 I agree with Jeffrey Jones regarding Federico Mompou -- more specifically, though, I think you might be especially intrigued by his Preludes, his Gitanes, the Intimate Impressions, and his Paisajes. I could also mention any of his 14 Canciones y Danzas, but I'm jealously hoarding that for myself, if this E-cital becomes a reality!

Jeffrey and Tim,
Thanks for your suggestions! I'll listen to some of these pieces and se if I find something I like and think I'll be able to learn.
I'm always looking for effectful pieces that do not require too much work to learn. Unfortunately low hanging fruit seems to be very rare in the musical world.

Apparently it was my videos of the Granados Spanish Dance Op 37 No 5 and the Navarette Odeon that sparked discussion of a possible Spanish/Latin American e-cital. smile

If the e-cital actually becomes a reality (and I hope it does), I'd like to claim the Albeniz SEVILLA and CATALUNA from Suite Espagnole Opus 47 along with the Granados Valses poeticos. ___________________________________________________________

Ganddalf - In addition to Tim's excellent suggestions above, you might want to check out:

Navarette - Remando (a Tango)

Hi, Cheeto717! Now that the Russian e-cital has officially been opened in the Adult Beginners Forum, you (or someone else) might want to resurrect the proposal for a Spanish/Latin American theme e-cital for late this year, or early 2017. Apart from the normal quarterly e-citals in ABF, I don't think there's anything else on the docket.
