Alright, I'm satisfied with it. Moving on, more or less.

Four new pieces this week. Two of which (Bartók 61 and Tansman) I'd learned back in December, but couldn't record back then due to my piano being out of tune. I've spent the last 10 or so days relearning these two pieces. The other piece by Bartók is probably my favourite of his so far; the accompaniment is just too beautiful. The Gurlitt I learned for the monthly Piano Jam on Reddit and was a ton of fun to learn.

1 Boyle – Song of the Knife-Grinder (In Times Past No. 10)
2 Gurlitt – The Fair (Op. 101 No. 8)
3 Swinstead – An Old Garden (Work and Play No. 1)
4 Türk – Children’s Ballad (Sixty Pieces for Aspiring Players, Book 1 No. 10)
5 Bartók – Line Against Point (Mikrokosmos Book 2, No. 64a)
6 Purcell – Prelude in G Major (Baroque Keyboard Pieces (ABRSM), Book 1, Z.660/1)
7 Tansman – Frolic (Happy Time Book 1, No. 6)
8 Tansman – Arabia (Happy Time Book 1, No. 5)
9 Bartók – Pentatonic Melody (Mikrokosmos Book 2, No. 61)
10 Bartók – Melody Divided (Mikrokosmos Book 2, No. 66)
11 Gurlitt – Turkish March (Op. 101 No. 9)

3) The Fairies' Harp

Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course (All-In-One) Level 1

A couple more, one recording. I also did a recording today of Sonatina in G Major, but that's a backup for the recital piece in case I bomb it. I will record the Burgmüller Etude next, and then I got to get busy recording something for the Waltz recital next month. Next on my list for RCM 5 is Prelude in D Flat Major (Rollin) and Sonatina In F Major, Anh. 5, No. 2 - First Movement (Beethoven)

1. Study in C (Op. 65, No. 3) - Albert Loeschhorn - Pianist Magazine
2. Écossaise (WoO 23) - Beethoven - Masterwork Classics Lvl 3 (RCM Level 2)
3. Nuvole Bianche - Ludovico Einaudi - Essential Einaudi (Islands)
4. German Dance in G Major (WoO 42, No. 6) - Beethoven - Masterwork Classics Lvl 4
5. Loch Lomond - Traditional - Alfred's Vol 2
6. Écossaise in E Flat (WoO 86) - Beethoven - Pianist Magazine Issue 100
7. Menuet in G Minor (BWV 842) (YouTube) - Bach - RCM Celebration Series Piano Repertoire Level 5
8. Sweet Sorrow (Op. 100, No. 16) - Burgmüller - RCM Celebration Series Piano Etudes Level 5

Why 40 pieces a year? That's 1 every 9.125 days or 3.33 per month...

Is there some scientific or experiential or artistically sound reason for this number?

Or is it set there just to "push" the student in his/her practice efforts?

Thanks much...

The first post in the thread has links to some background info on the challenge. Nikola Tesla would have chosen 39.

I'm not a neurologist. The increased rate at which we process the new material of the same skill level; rhythms, melodies and harmonies gives the brain something to sharpen itself. The same pattern over in over has a way of becoming boring and the brain stops sharping (of course technique and muscle memory are still being developed but the risk of boredom is higher). Harder material overwhelms the brain leading to frustration. So to avoid boredom, frustration and sharpen your cognitive pathways you need to be engaged and practice NEW material just below your skill level.

It is the a faster way to get better.

This may be just a belief but I have been told to do this by multiple educators so I happy this support is here for me. Thanks


Piano is fun!

Look at all of you plugging along smile

I'm behind but what else is new :p

@Handyman 40 is just a number as the challenge can totally be suited to you. Just aim for what's comfortable for you and your ability. Out of 3 years of doing this challenge myself I reached 40 last year but it doesn't mean I'll make that total this year. You just need to work at a pace that good for you and enjoy the challenge and the journey.

Wow! So many new faces! Welcome all!

I relocated and started a new job, which is why I have been quiet. I finally had the time to set up my digital piano for recording, so I will be catching up with recording all the pieces I have learned so far.

01) Kullak - Op. 4 No. 2, Witches' Dance [Soundcloud]

That's a very nice little piece and well performed. Thanks for the reminder. I searched earlier for that piece but I couldn't find out at that time by which Kullak it was written so now I searched again and saw it was also performed by Philip Sear and he gives a lot of times a bit of information about the composer. Now I know it's composed by Ernst Kullak, the uncle of Theodore Kullak and misattributed to Theodore Kullak on a lot of scores. Added it to my list of pieces to play and already downloaded a typeset score. So Thanks!

If I stick with those 40 pieces than I'm already over 50%. Hmmmm, holiday? whistle It's crazy, so many that seemed so hard at first and I could not finish, seem suddenly a lot easier. Strange... maybe I consumed to much red pepper... I really don't know. crazy I' m also looking and trying a bit harder ones, but on the other hand there are still a lot of easier pieces left that I had choosen to play. I don't know much about those levels/grades but I get the impression that I'm more and more crawling into level 3, but sometimes I don't understand a bit about those so called levels/grades.

That piece by Beethoven wasn't fast enough to my own satisfaction, but I had enough of it, maybe I will return to it later.

I've added two more to my list, one from each end of the grade scale. My teacher suggested that I do pieces from ABRSM grade 1 through grade 7 for this challenge, so I dug out my collection of exam books from the past. I am having a lot of fun with them, and it gives me quite a variety.
So my list now is:
1. Telfer -(Celebration Series 5)When Rivers Flowed on Mars
2. Heller - (Masterworks Classics 5)Etude in C Major
3. Chopin - (Celebration series 8)Prelude in B Minor op. 28 #6
4. Astor - Valses Venuzuelos # 1 Adriana ABRSM selections grade 8 2017-2018
(quarterly recital) I will add this link after the recital.
5. Scarlatti -(ABRSM grade 4)Scarlatti Sonata in D Minor K34
6. Kalinnikov - (Celebration Series RCM 8) Chansom Triste
7. Kember - (ABRSM grade 2 2011-2012) Bah-ba-doo-bah

Fun listening to all the pieces being shared. Terrific stuff.

Looking forward to seeing the progress of our new members: Pierre Whorley and TangoLizard

Which reminds me, I really need to get a move on with my own progress.

That's a very nice little piece and well performed. Thanks for the reminder. I searched earlier for that piece but I couldn't find out at that time by which Kullak it was written so now I searched again and saw it was also performed by Philip Sear and he gives a lot of times a bit of information about the composer. Now I know it's composed by Ernst Kullak, the uncle of Theodore Kullak and misattributed to Theodore Kullak on a lot of scores. Added it to my list of pieces to play and already downloaded a typeset score. So Thanks!

Thanks for the extra info. I was trying to look for the complete Op. 4, but failed. I also came across both Kullaks and didn't know who composed it exactly, so I just put Kullak to be safe though my score says Theodore.

SwissMS, I am planning to do this too, for the pieces from Grade 1 through Grade 6, and see if I can stretch it to finish both Grade 7 & 8 too. It will be a big challenge.

Adding 3 more pieces:

1) Kullak - Op. 4 No. 2, Witches' Dance
2) Streabbog - Op. 64 No. 9, The Whirlwind [Soundcloud]
3) Streabbog - Op. 64 No. 10, The Rope Dancer [Soundcloud]
4) Streabbog - Op. 64 No. 11, The Cadets [Soundcloud]

You are very kind, thank you! blush
I love Schumann's poetic pieces like this one, Mignon or Solitary Flowers...
