Recording method:TASCAM400
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:For my money, Richard Rodgers was one the best composers of waltzes who ever lived -- I'd say certainly the best in the Broadway Musical world. And, as popular as Rodgers and Hammerstein later became, I think that it's somewhat forgotten how innovative they were in Musical Theater in the early 40s. "The Carousel Waltz" is a perfect example of this -- rather than writing the opening Overture, with a pastiche of songs that would be heard in the musical itself, he chose a completely different opening concept: a series of waltzes which accompanied pantomimes of various scenes to be presented in the musical -- the waltzes themselves never showed up in the musical itself. And I agree with the general assessment that is this one of the truly great Broadway selections.

I'm working through RCM5 now and this piece seemed like a good fit for the recital. It's a list C selection. I enjoy it.

I learned this piece last year, and go back to it from time to time. Trills need work. I think my thumb is lazy and doesn't lift off the key sometimes.

Instrument used:Yamaha UX-1
Technical feedback wanted:No
Additional info:This is a lesser known (it was to me anyway) Peterson piece I came across some years ago. The arrangement I heard of it, although the Peterson trio, was fairly basic with just Bass and Piano and no jazz choruses. I though it was fabulous and had it scored for me by a Teacher I had briefly at the time. It is always an enjoyable short to play and easily conveys any mood you choose to play it with.

Thank you for listening.

Title of piece:Waltzer Op. 12 No 2

Duration:01:48
Source of music:Sheet Music: Schirmer's Library of Musical Classics, Ed. Louis Oesterle
Instrument used:1911 Chickering Parlor Grand
Recording method:Audacity, using ASUS flipbook microphone
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:I recorded this about five times in a row, trying different combinations of tempos, dynamic contrasts, and expression. I even tried playing the waltz intentionally opposite the written dynamic and tempo markings.

This recording (the one I liked best) mostly follows the markings in the score.

I didn't sign up or promise to play this piece for the recital, and I know that there may be another performance, but I happened to be playing this piece and wanted to share it.

Composer:Stephen Hartke
Duration:03:24
Source of music:Sheet Music
Instrument used:Kawai 5.5' Baby Grand
Recording method:TASCAM400
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:"Gymnopedie #4" is one of three solo piano pieces that Stephen Hartke compiled under the title "Post-Modern Homages". He wrote this in 1984, and it is (of course) an homage to Erik Satie. I admit I'm pushing the envelope in calling the Gymnopedie rhythm (a slow one-TWO; one-TWO, etc) a "waltz", but I'll defend it to the extent that the pulse of the piece is in 3 throughout, and that the middle section, in 3/8 feel, is quite waltz-y indeed. The piece is straighforwardly tonal, although there is quite bit of shift from key to key -- really, pretty much as Satie did in his Gymnopedies.

Title of piece:Waltz, from "Peccadillos"
Composer:Paul Schoenfield
Duration:04:08
Source of music:Sheet music
Instrument used:Kawai 5.5' Baby Grand
Recording method:TASCAM400
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:"Waltz" is one of a series of solo piano pieces Schoenfield wrote as part of a solo piano Suite he entitled "Peccadillos", in 1996. In his amusing notes, Schoenfield said he wasn't much interested in writing anything for solo piano; he felt that there was so much written already that the genre was pretty much exhausted. However, the meaning of "peccadillo" -- a composition tainted by bad taste or kitsch, a "guilty pleasure" -- suggested that even HE could compose something that would meet that criterion using forms predisposed to cornball excess -- the Rag, the Boogie, the Shuffle, etc -- and the Waltz. But in point of fact, Schoenfield specifically did NOT attempt to write anything "campy" at all -- every piece is very elegantly composed; thoroughly thought through, totally serious.

Additional info:Scott Joplin wrote five waltzes. Three unsyncopated and two syncopated. His 1909 waltz "Bethena" is a legitimate masterpiece and I think the most-watched video on my channel.

Having prepared that piece years before this recital, my best remaining option was simply to prepare for you Joplin's other very fine ragtime waltz, "Pleasant Moments," the Jan Brady to the Marsha Brady that is "Bethena"

Additional info:I came across this little gem when I was flipping through the ABRSM Grade 6 exam pieces. I read somewhere that everyone who has learned piano in Finland would have played this piece, so it's like the national waltz of Finland and I find that intriguing. It has a nice melody with unusual choice of chords for this period. It's my first time playing in rubato. I hope you enjoy it!

Recording method:Zoom H4N for audio, trimmed and converted to mp3 with Audacity/ Zoom Q8 for video
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:For these ABF recitals, I've gotten to the point where I make at most two or three attempts at recording a piece. I then forgive myself for the inevitable mistakes that I make in my performances and submit the best one, rather than continue to strive for that elusive perfect performance. And this "best" one--take #2--is still just about as far from a perfect performance as one can get. So laughable were some of the mistakes I made, that on one video version that I uploaded to my YouTube channel, I even added a laugh track at an especially mistake laden moment to emphasize my frustration. If you're interested in watching that YouTube version (rather than the video that I formally submitted here), go to 3:05 at https://youtu.be/ewITBJnMrEc. And feel free to laugh along.

Additional info:Since I submitted the Astor "Valses Venozuelos - Adriana" to the quarterly recital, I decided to come up with a couple of additional waltzes for this recital. If anyone is interested, here is a link to the Youtube video of that piece- (just to prove I did it!)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5dytzCLyGqU

I like the contrast of moods in this Rebikov piece and its sad, reflective nature. It contrasts two waltz styles. The dotted rhythms of the first section contrast with the flowing feel of the second section.

Additional info:This is another short, but sweet waltz. I fell in love with this piece when I first heard it. It has a few edge of the keys ninths and tenths, but other than that it is pretty straight forward. It is another one where I play with the amount of rubato depending on my mood. This version has quite a bit!

Title of piece:It's a Raggy Waltz
Composer:Dave Brubeck
Duration:01:56
Source of music:By Ear from mixed sources and some tampering.
Instrument used:VPC1 controller/Garritan CFX
Recording method:Cubase
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This is my mish-mash arrangement cobbled together from a couple of Dave Brubeck's YT recordings with a variation of my own for each of the A and B sections. The original album version is quite slow so not having the punch of Joe Morello's drums I felt it sounded better at the brighter tempo of the live versions. Mischievous with the time signature (that was the whole point!) his 3 bars of 2/4 - the raggy bit - can be counted as 2 bars of 3/4 without losing continuity.

I think I must have been in my early teens when my parents, keen jazz-lovers, replaced an aging 78rpm radiogram with a lurid red and cream Dansette player and, of all things, the very first album to play on it, Brubeck's 'Jazz, Red Hot and Cool'. That was a few years before Joe Dodge was replaced by the more polyrhythmic Joe Morello who helped push the quartet to experiment with time signatures. I think Brubeck must have been as surprised as anyone that Take Five (from Time Out) became a huge commercial pop hit.

Title of piece:Valse Impromptu, S.213
Composer:Franz Liszt
Duration:05:53
Instrument used:Yamaha P-255 digital keyboard
Recording method:Audacity with a Blue Yeti USB microphone
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:Although he is probably best known for his Hungarian Rhapsodies and etudes, Franz Liszt wrote piano music in almost all styles, including a significant number of waltzes. These include later, more experimental works (Mephisto Walzes, Valses Oubliees) as well as more traditional waltzes, such as this one and others from his touring years.

I probably wouldn't have discovered this piece if it weren't for Gyorgy Cziffra's recording on Youtube. It's a great recording, although he takes a lot of liberties. Well, of course he does - he's Cziffra playing Liszt, right? After giving it some thought, I decided that the idea of an "impromptu" waltz could allow for some flexibility with the written score. Some may disagree, with good reason. Personally, I think there is a long history of performers, including Horowitz and Volodos, judiciously altering Liszt's "showy" works, and the piece is a bit too repetitious without it. It was still tricky to develop my own interpretation after having Cziffra's idea of the piece in my head.

Although I learned the notes ahead of time, I've been playing in a pit band the last few weeks, so I haven't been able to devote as much time to this as I'd like. In the end, though, I think it turned out okay, liberties and all. Enjoy!

Performer's name:outo
From:Finland
Experience:about 7
Direct music link:click to download
Title of piece:Waltz op 69
Composer:Shostakovich Dmitry
Duration:00:56
Source of music:Sheet music (Schirmer)
Instrument used:Bluthner baby grand
Recording method:Olympus recorder to MP3
Technical feedback wanted:No
Additional info:I noticed today that it's the last day of this recital and suddenly I had a feeling that I have missed too many recitals already...But I do not really care for waltzes and had nothing prepared. So what to do? I looked into my library for the easiest one I could find and found this little cute waltz by one of my favorite composers. I had trouble reading the notes, they are so small, but I managed to record it after a few tries.

My grand is out of tune and I notice from the recording that I am playing very reserved in the upper register to keep the tone down. But it's really not the piano's fault, it's the terrible weather changes (it has gone up from -15c to 0c and then back down again in just few days).

The piece is from notebook for children. Even if it's very short and simple I think it presents well the distinctive unique style of Shostakovich.
