MarciajsR, you could start by using the "Quote" function and then delete the actual quote tags, that should leave you with the rest of the formatting you need I think

My latest pieces:

9. Satie, Gymnopedie no.3. I love Satie! The biggest problem I had with this was controlling the dynamics of the lowest bass notes. I was too stiff and PP sometimes came out like F. I'm now getting a bit better at relaxing into the keys.
8. Granados, Valses poeticos no.6 in F# minor.I'm very fond of Granados and the Valses poeticos have long been on by to-do list. A few are much too fast and athletic for me but most of them are quite manageable.
7. Shostakovich, Prelude no.7 from 24 Preludes, op.24. Another favourite composer. I have the whole book of preludes and will be working on some more of them, though some look impossible.
6. Nielsen, En lille langsom Vals, op.11 no.3
5. Granados, La Mendiga(The little beggar girl), from "Stories for the young".
4. Mendelssohn, Kinderstuck op.72 no.1
3. Harburg and Arlen, Over the Rainbow
2. Mark Tanner, Zebra Crossing (Pianist magazine no.90)
1. Satie, Gnossienne no.3

QuinGold - looking forward to hearing your new piano!

SwissMS - as always, you are a joy to listen to. very nice piece from Darius Brubeck

Melchiorblade7 - again, excellent and fun Bach!

barbaram - great bluesy sound ... I have cracked open the Tim Richards book but have not dived into it yet.

Ralphiano - nice work with the Gillock piece, those can be challenging.

JoBert - your NV10 sounds fantastic, nice playing too!

Davidonabus - beautiful Chopin.

Well done to everyone who's been reporting their progress. It's great to be part of this supportive group!

I've taken the opportunity to listen back to some recent updates:

JoBert - lovely playing on both the Schumann and the Burgmuller

Davidonabus - gorgeous Chopin

FishandChips - lovely Bach

AbbyC - you are making great progress

Ralphiano - I very much enjoyed your Gillock piece

Melchiorblade7 - beautiful playing, Aqua Memory is indeed a lovely piece & your Bach Invention 7 was great too. That's not one I know so well.

SwissMs - I enjoyed your Brubeck, an interesting piece from a composer that's new to me

QuiinGold - love your jazz & blues pieces

GoldmanT - lovely Debussy, and the Limehouse Blues was great!

Medden - very nice Puccini

Pavel K - more lovely Bach. Nice ornaments!

BitSpirit - enjoyed the bluesy Schaum,

Scorpio & ZoeCalgary - thanks for your comments

Oh, wow. Thank you for the acknowledgement that our 40 Piece Challenge members participated in Recital 49! That was a wonderful opportunity and first time experience. The comments and suggestion on technique are so very encouraging and much appreciated. 😀

10. Minuet in G from Anna M Notebook, by Bach (Petzold); without repeats and without ornamentation, single voice in LH.

The Minuet is hard! Hard for me, anyway. Spent a ton of time working on it over the past few weeks.

It's not "perfect". No repeats, no ornaments, and it turns out there are two voices in the LH toward the bottom of page 2, that I misunderstood while I was practicing it. But! I can play it all the way thru, at or about 70bpm (with some noticeable slowing at the hard parts). Sometimes I can play it without a mistake! Like one time in three or four. But those are adding up. Anyway, my teacher seemed impressed.

We're targetting me doing the National Guild Auditions in June. I asked my teacher if this could be one of my pieces – I'm probably looking to attempt 4 – and he said yes, absolutely. Some sharpening up to do on this, obviously. Clean up the slow points; also my teacher talked to me about "portamento" in the quarter notes. A lot of work. But, it's "under my fingers" enough for me to count it.

So, cool.

15. Luminous Night (Roberto Cacciapaglia) 3/5

I picked Luminous Night as it was in the r/piano Piano Jam last month. I couldn't participate but it looked like a fun piece to learn, I haven't done much of the "lots of arpeggios crowd pleasers" type music, but as I was listening to a recording of my my wife chimed in that she liked it, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I might try to record it if I can get enough of it down. I finally got brave enough to record for a recital here (the Waltz Recital) and since I got through that hardest one, it should be easy to post more, right? smile

Luminous Night - what a lovely piece! My background is mostly classical and there are whole swathes of music that are unfamiliar to me. I've just downloaded the sheet music and will give it a go. This thread is great for expanding my horizons - thanks!
