Thank you Pianist685, Tim Adrianson, SMA55, SwissMS and cmb13 for the kind comments. It means a lot to me - I'm always wondering if I'm on the right track.

Many thanks to everyone who has taken the time to listen and comment on my submissions, it's greatly appreciated!
Another few comments from me:

28. Whizbang (Chris) - Pleasant Moments
Great to have a ragtime waltz in the mix, I really enjoyed this piece

29. mel_lem (Melanie) - Valse Lente, Op. 33
Well done, lovely playing

30. SMA55 (Shepherd Abrams) - Waltz in C# Minor, Opus 64 No. 2
Lovely! I really enjoyed this.

31. Davidonabus (David Pritchett) - Waltz Op.69 No.2
Such a gorgeous piece and a lovely performance. On my wish list!

32. SwissMS/Doris - Waltz in F# Minor
Lovely contrast of style, I especially like the second half

33. SwissMS/Doris - Waltz in B Minor
Another very nice piece. Your piano is sounding really wonderful (credit to both the instrument and the player smile )

34. gingko2 - Lost Waltz
You create a lovely mood here. I have this Brubeck book and have played through a number of the pieces, but despite their simplicity I find it hard to get my head around them and get them to a decent standard.

Amazing recital everyone. Diverse and well-played.

24. Greener/Jeff - Song to Elitha
Oh, very nice, Jeff! I don’t think I’ve heard you play jazz, since I’ve been participating in the ABF recitals. Way to go!

25. Greywullf - Waltzer Op. 12 No 2
A funny, puckish little waltz. Just what you’d expect from Grieg—if only he had been at all predictable. I think you do a really nice job with this!

28. Whizbang (Chris) - Pleasant Moments
Well done! Jan Brady would be proud—even if Marcia gets all of the catcalls.

29. mel_lem (Melanie) - Valse Lente, Op. 33
I agree with you that this piece has an unusual chord progression—for a waltz! But it’s very enjoyable and well played. Good work!

31. Davidonabus (David Pritchett) - Waltz Op.69 No.2
Very steadily and evenly played. And that takes skill to do—only I can’t help wanting to hear some rubato. Maybe that’s just me. But it is Chopin after all. Still well done!

32. SwissMS/Doris - Waltz in F# Minor
Looks like a somewhat difficult piece, requiring a fair amount of jumping around for both hands. And you played it very well!

33. SwissMS/Doris - Waltz in B Minor
Short but sweet indeed. And you played it well!

34. gingko2 - Lost Waltz
Another nice little piece. I liked it. Good job!

35. diretonic - Waltz for Debby
Just lovely! You have a great touch and played this so well. Bravo!

36. diretonic - It's a Raggy Waltz
Wow! So very impressive! What more can I say!?!

37. mp15 - Valse Impromptu, S.213
You obviously have great piano chops, so I want to be sure to emphasize that. That being said, I can’t say I’m much of a fan of Liszt’s flashier pieces, of which this is clearly one. Also, I wish I could hear more of your piano and less of your room in this recording. But again, technically your performance was quite impressive!

38. outo - Waltz op 69
Really? On the last day of the recital you just began this piece? That’s pretty impressive. I wouldn’t dream of doing that!

39. PikaPianist - Waltz (Lyric Pieces Op.38, No.7)
The epitome of short but sweet. But REALLY sweet—and well played!

40. Greener/Jeff - Gravy Waltz
Sounds like you’ve got the feel for this piece and that you’re well on your way with it. Like you, I’m confident that you’ll be there quite soon. Good work and nifty collaboration! And again, I don’t believe I’ve previously heard you working on jazz until this recital.

41. Moonsh1ne - Waltz in e minor Nice waltz. I wasn’t previously familiar with this piece. Good job.

42. Moonsh1ne - Waltz in C sharp Minor Op.64 No. 2
Nice effort. But if I’m being honest, it still needs some work. Are you studying this on your own or with a teacher?

43. Schubertian - La plus que lente
Very nice! I enjoyed your playing very much. Well done! And thank you for your work on this recital!

Tim, Pianist685, SwissMS and SMA55 thank you for the kind words. Pianist685, it was PianoGrlNW who did this piece for the Spanish-Latin American recital.

A little late, but I've been revisiting the recital this afternoon and I have loads more comments:

01. JoBert - Waltz (Opus 39, No. 3)
Lovely JoBert, a little gem! (and your Novus sounds amazing)

02. PianogrlNW (Ellen) - The Gentle Waltz
Haha, your description exactly sums up how I felt about learning the Brubeck piece you submitted, see my comments below.
But you overcame that obstacle, obviously, because your performance is beautiful and “makes sense of it” in a really convincing way. Love it!

06. MeganR - German Dance WoO 13 No 1
Lovely flow and energy here Megan!

07. dumka1 - Waltz op. 69 no. 1 ("L'adieu")
Really gorgeous dumka, thanks for sharing!

08. sinophilia - Andantino quasi allegretto - No. 8 from Valses romanticos
Well done sinophilia, lovely piece and I really enjoyed your sensitive and delicate playing

09. Pianist685 (Constantin) - Fantaisie-valse
Very interesting – as someone who only knows Satie’s Gymnopedies and Gnossiennes, this is really something quite different. Great performance, thank you!

10. Pianist685 (Constantin) - Waltz Op. 39 No. 15
Gorgeous!

15. Beemer - Waltz No2 from Suite No2 for Jazz Orchestra
I really love this piece, and your piano version works well even if it’s hard to live up to the full orchestral version! You really capture the playful energy of the original, I enjoyed it a lot

16. zsolpyW - Waltz in E Major op. posth.
This is lovely, and not one I was familiar with. You played it beautifully

17. cmb13 / Craig - Milonga del Angel
Well done!
This is WIP for me at the moment, I love this piece! It’s down my priority list at the moment so I’m only checking in with it sporadically, but hoping to move it back to pole position once I get my piece for the next ABF Quarterly “done”.
That tricky middle bit will take me a while to bring together I know (bottom page 1/top page 2 if we are working off the same version) – I’ve spent some time with it, but it needs way more.
I really enjoyed your performance of it. I hear and understand your self criticism, and sure, if you come back to this in the future with more experience you will be able to raise it to the next level, but right now you have brought it to a lovely performance standard and you deserve to feel proud of it!

18. PianogrlNW (Ellen) - Memories of a Viennese Park
Beautifully played, and I have a particular reason to really appreciate the opportunity to listen to your performance smile
I worked on this a couple of years ago, but never got it into good shape. It looked so simple on the page, but I found it hard to get my head around it for some reason, and it never flowed for me. I remember that you offered your help at the time, for which I am still very grateful. I had picked it as a 40 piece challenge piece though, and when I accepted that I had misjudged the difficulty, I wasn’t prepared to devote the time I would have required to get it to a decent level.
But, I wasn’t able to find a recording on the internet, so this is the first time I have had the chance to listen to it played well. Thank you!


19. EdmondRhapsody - Waltz Op. 39 No. 15
There’s something very emotional about those chord progressions! Really nicely played, I enjoyed this a lot

20. squidbot (Chris B) - Chopin Waltz in A minor Posthumous B. 150
Lovely stuff squidbot. You have a musicality and delicacy of tone that I would admire if you had been playing for twice or three times as long as you have!


22. BSharp(C)yclist (Dan) - A Slow Waltz (Op. 39, No. 23)
A great fun Kabalevsky piece – I’ve played a good few pieces of his, all very enjoyable to play.

23. BSharp(C)yclist (Dan) - Waltz in A Minor
I do love this piece, and you do a great job of it. Very nice trills, despite you criticising yourself!

24. Greener/Jeff - Song to Elitha
Lovely piece, your arrangement has a French café sound to it which gives it great character (not sure what the name for that style actually is!)

25. Greywullf - Waltzer Op. 12 No 2
Sounds great, Greywullf. I like the way you described experimenting with dynamics and tempo, and it’s interesting that in the end you liked it best when you followed the markings in the score

The Tim Adrianson Gold Collection
Fantastic set of submissions Tim. What a pleasure to listen to them all. I think Blue Shadows was my standout, but the whole set is wonderful

Thank you, I appreciate the comments....I would also encourage you to keep up with this piece. I have enjoyed learning and playing this one so much, and have learned a lot from it. Yes, the chords at the bottom of the first page are tricky and take a while to get used to. Dynamically, my teacher had me play the first, third and fifth set louder than the others. The key change after that section is a lot of fun, and the modulation back to the original key is also neat. Finally, the timing Milonga count (1.2.3.1.2.3.1.2) in some sections really livens up this piece.

I'm Glad you found at least the chord progression interesting and thank you for commenting on my piece. The intent was in the title, Wobbly being the important term. I'm also grateful to Tim for taking the time to learn the piece (it's deceptively difficult). The purpose of the wandering harmony is to depict that wobbliness. It's a happy ending in the end, the music finds its way home.

I think I got the old recital above this one by commenting, so I'll repeat here that I am listening to the waltzes now...very interesting! I guess when I finish I still won't be able to recognize all waltzes in the world and be able to identify them as "a waltz" since they are sounding different from each other, which I sure prefer. smile

Hmm, if you wonder why I am thinking of "waltz", it is because I am still quite at the beginning..."Blue Shadows in the Street" a waltz? laugh Anyhow, I like "Blue Shadows in the Street" a lot! smile
