Oh my I need to catch up to all the great recordings everybody has done. Here's some comments on the latest ones I have listened to/watched:
barbaram: Most excellent on On-Off Boogie! Great fun! BitSpirit: She Won't Listen; Another great and fun sounding piece. GoldmanT: I love your ending in Limehouse Blues! I also like your creativity in the start of Memories of Green; I don't know the pieces but I liked how you explained why you did what you did. AnitaPotter: Zum Anfang: This is a very pretty piece and very nicely done! JoBert: Very nice. I've never heard this one before. I really liked the melody a lot. fishandchips: Bach Prelude in G Minor: I'm not familiar with this piece but I found it very enjoyable to listen to.
Here is an updated URL for my recital piece this month as well. Currently working on Prelude in D Flat Major by Catherine Rollin and Sonatina in F Major (Anh 5, No 2) by Beethoven.

Hi bSharpCyclist, I listened to your Menuet in G. Minor and really enjoyed it. I also really loved the Nuvole Bianche. I really like Einaudi but have never managed to pull any of his pieces off; even what are supposed to be the simpler ones. All around Wonderful! I really love this style of music. I have to read your info on recording in more detail too!
I see your #8 piece is Sweet Sorrow; this is a piece I have learned in the past. I would really LOVE if you did a recording of this. Does this forum accept requests? :-)
Thanks, Zoe! Yes, I plan to do a recording of Sweet Sorrow. I plan to record whatever RCM 5 pieces I work on. I hope to record Prelude in D flat soon as well. The sonatina by Beethoven (and list B in general) take a bit longer ;0
I just realized that my announcement of my #3 was cheating, because I had already counted it as my #22 in 2017 (only then I didn't post a recording to keep in in reserve for the ABF recital, and when the recital was now live, I automatically announced it here, as I usually do for my recital pieces - thus the confusion; sorry for that!).

This is probably my favorite 2-part invention by Bach. Its similar to some of the Goldberg Variations in structure and mood. Love it! Took such a long time to interpret and record but I like how it turned out
A correction on my previous post. I marked the Gavotte the third piece, while it is actually the fourth.
So, the current list is:
1. Malaguena 2. Long Long Ago 3. Sympony #40 4. Gavotte <- The corrected number 5. Coffee House Boogie (from Adult Piano Adventures Book 2) 6. Looking Glass River (from Adult Piano Adventures Book 2)
I ended up playing a lot with the Coffee House Boogie by changing the rhythm to the point where the piece sounds more classical than jazzy. It is interesting how rhythm only affects the perception of the music style.
