I like this idea. I'm looking at the last I did for 2016, perhaps I'll do them again for 2019. Actually, I went back to the very first piece I did in that list, BWV 114. I just recently added the trills. Can I count it twice laugh

* I came across this piece (for learning) a few years ago from Yousician app, and now from the Piano Adventures book.
* I don’t remember the earlier arrangements, but this one specifically focuses on the ledger line (that is the topic of the unit), so it is actually a good practice for that.
* I love the transitions between chords, especially in bar 22. It feels magical a little bit.


28. Lunar Eclipse - from Faber’s Piano Adventures (book 2)
* It is written in E minor (harmonic) in binary form. I believe that is what is called, but I am not totally sure. It has an A section and then B section after which it returns to B and then finishes the Coda.
* This piece introduces few different techniques:
* Tenuto (holding the note for its full value)
* 7-th interval
* Chromatic descent
* Arpeggios
* It has a mystic feel (if the first and the last (third) section). I don’t get the second section at all. It sounds too weird and it does not stick with my fingers. Meh.


29. Hummingbird by Rick Robertson. . This is the piece I also submitted for my August recital.
30. Swan Lake - Theme from the Overture to Act II. Arrangement from Adult Piano Adventures ( book 2 )
31. House of Rising Sun Lead sheet from Adult Piano Adventures ( book 2 )

This is my first attempt at recording JS Bach's Invention No 13. Not yet perfect and this recording has some mistakes - but I think it good enough to say its a piece I have learnt.

I have also updated Invention No 8 to a better version

Hello, friends.

This topic is very interesting: it gives an excellent motivation for learning new works.
I play piano for about 9 months (approximately 3-4 hours per week, unfortunately, it's less than I would like). I am trained at home without a teacher on my digital piano: Yamaha CLP-635.
About 12 years I did not play musical instruments (and I never played the piano). But in my childhood I graduated from the music school in accordion class (this helped me a lot, because I know the musical notation).

To date, I can play the following:

  • 1. Petzold - Minuet in G major, BWV Anh. 114 (Record >>)
  • 2. Petzold - Minuet in G minor, BWV Anh. 115 (Record >>)
  • 3. Star Wars - The Imperial March (Record >>)
  • 4. Linkin Park - Numb (Record >>)
  • 5. Beethoven - Bagatelle, Op. 119, No 9 (Record >>)
  • 6. Berkovich - Etude on a Theme by Paganini (Record >>)
  • 7. Zhuravli (The Cranes)/Журавли - Y. Frenkel/Я. Френкель (Record >>)
  • 8. Bizet - Carmen: Toreador Song (Record >>)
  • 9. Verdi - La Donna È Mobile (Rigoletto) (Record >>)
  • 10. Beethoven - Sonatina in G major, Anh. 5, Moderato (Record >>)
  • 11. Beethoven - Sonatina in G major, Anh. 5, Romanze (Record >>)
  • 12. Chopin - Waltz A Minor (op. posthume) (Record >>)
  • 13. Tchaikovsky - Neapolitan Song, Op. 39, 18 (Record >>)
  • 14. Beethoven - La Marmotte, Op. 52, No 7 (Record >>)
  • 15. The Beatles - Yesterday (Record >>)
  • 16. Rachmaninov - Polka Italienne (Arr. A. Siloti) (WIP)
  • 17. Beethoven - Fur Elise, Bagatelle No. 25 in A minor, WoO 59 (Record >>)


I started learning to play the piano in November 2017.

StasNick, nice Für Elise!
If you are interested to improve it a bit more, I can point out one or two mistakes where you play incorrect notes (or leave out notes) that seem as if you learned them incorrectly (i.e. that are not simply mistakes made during the recording). But only if you want, I don't want to impose.

JoBert, thanks for your feedback.
Yes, of course, I will be glad to hear any comments.
I try to constantly improve my performance of musical pieces as far as possible.

Ok, here we go:

I think that most of these mistakes are mistakes that you have practiced wrongly, but some may also be a fault of your edition of the score?

In bars 13-15, you dropped one D# E pair. The score says there are six D# E pairs before the B, you play only five. You make the same mistake consistently whenever this part is repeated later in the piece.
Similarly in bars 36-38. Here there should be five pairs, you play only four.

In bar 23 there should not be a pause between the last three notes of the A-part and the first three chords of the B-part. And the tempo of these three chords should be the same as that of the three notes, not slower. They are all 16ths.

In bar 29, you play more notes in the RH than my edition says. But that may be case of different editions. I have the Henle Urtext.

In bar 34, the first note in the RH should be an E.

In bars 64 and 65, the LH should play the chord in repeated 16th, similar to the repeated 16th in the bars before and after.

In bar 75, the LH should play a C.

In bars 77-79, the rhythm in the LH is wrong. In each bar, you play the second chord one 16th too early, together with the E in the RH. It should instead be played together with the D, one 16th later.

Hope this helps!

Hello again! Wow, I haven`t been to this forum since March! My piano practicing hasn`t been that great either, but still I have managed to finish a couple of new pieces during those months. Here they are:

11) R. Schumann: "Trällerliedchen" from Album for the Young, op 68
12) R. Schumann: "Ein Choral" from Album for the Young, op 68
13) F. Couperin: Rondeau in B-flat major (Les Bergeries), from Anna-Magdalena`s notebook, BWV Anh. 183
14) W.A.Mozart: Sonata no 5, in G-major, Allegro

JoBert, many thanks for your detailed comment. It's amazing!
It seems that you are familiar with every note of this Bagatelle smile

Yes, some errors are related to my level of play (bars: 13-15, 36-38, 75, 77-79). Yes, there were mistakes. This is my inattention. Thanks for your instructions. Now I have fixed it:
  • 17. Beethoven - Fur Elise, Bagatelle No. 25 in A minor, WoO 59 (Record >>)


But other differences (bars: 29, 34, 64, 65) are due to the fact that I use "special" edition of the score/sheet (if I may say so).

I was trying to find the urtext (manuscript) of Beethoven himself. To ensure that the music text is as close to composer as possible. But, if I understood correctly, this manuscript has not been preserved, and this manuscript is not.
Perhaps you know that the first and most authentic was the publication "To Elise", which was made by Ludwig Nohl in 1867.
Nohl claimed to have made his record from the manuscript, which was subsequently lost.
And in this edition there are all these differences, about which you wrote.
But the wider distribution, for some reason, was received not by this publication, but by the second and the subsequent one. And in them there were many changes (but for what reason? A big question).
A detailed comparison of different publications is in this scientific article:
http://old.conservatory.ru/files/Musicus_37_Kulakov.pdf

Article in Russian, but you can make a translation if you want. There are good examples. And there are comments of the author of the article, which considers those or other differences from the musical point of view. And I generally agree with the author that the text of Nohl is more saturated and complicated for hearing. Therefore, I decided to focus on him.

The changes in bar 29 are due to the fact that I add gruppetto for the note "C". This I took from the music text that I have and was attached to the digital piano. I like this moment, because it sounds good and is more complicated than the usual note smile

That's fine, of course. I already suspected that some of the differences may have been because a different edition. I'm happy I could be of help with the other issues.
