A pleasant little piece - the atmosphere it evokes is thoughtful and calm and has a hymn-like quality. You played it nicely and I enjoyed listening to it.

You're doing well. Nice separation of chords, tone control and overall good sound. The little bit of Mendelssohn I've looked at also had very rich chords and I enjoyed for this same reason.

Thank you all for this batch of comments and for listening. I feel as though as I am progressing, the rate of progression is itself progressing. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep this one as repertoire or move on. There's so much to learn, so little time!

My next one (for the upcoming waltz recital) is a definite keeper.....

Thank you all for listening to my submission, and for your encouraging and generous comments (which do wonders for my motivation until the next Recital).

And once again, thank you to the tireless organisers - your work is greatly appreciated. thumb

I would like to thank everyone for submitting their pieces to the recital. I have enjoyed listening to all of them and especially thank
those of you who listened and commented on my piece - I won't list them all but there were many ! It was a pleasure to read all your kind and positive comments - they were really helpful and much appreciated.

I have a further batch of comments here - there are still many I haven't managed to include, but as it looks like the posts are coming to an end now ( I may be the last to submit any comments ) I think I may finish off here but will again say how much I enjoyed all the performances in the recital.

[b]11. Peyton - Etude #6

A very stirring and exciting performance, dramatic and insistent - required a lot of energy to play this it seemed. The feeling of desperation and despair came over to me without doubt. Very well played,I enjoyed it.

[b]12. Sandalholme - Mazurka Op24 No2

A lively performance - played with delicacy and very expressive. You certainly captured the mazurka rhythm. Enjoyed listening to this very much.

[b]13. Tootles/Laurie - I Want to Hold Your Hand

Wonderful performance for just three months of playing. This shows how much you must love your new hobby and you should keep at it ! A pleasure to listen to. The Beatles have always been one of my favourite groups.

[b]15. Piano2138 - Menuet BWV Anh 132

Another excellently played piece for a relative beginner to the piano. A confident and competent performance with ornaments evenly executed. Well done !

[b]16. h8dk97 - Nocturne No. 20 in C-sharp minor

A beautiful Nocturne and yet another amazing performance by someone with so few years of experience. Trills and runs were very successfully played and you kept the rhythm going regularly throughout. Sensitive and thoughtful mood prevalent in this piece. Very nice.

[b]17. Anita Potter - Zum Anfang

Delightful little piece with an even, regular rhythm which you kept going very well. I like the interesting counter-melody of the left hand and the way it interacts with the right hand melody. Beautiful performance.

[b]18. dumka1 - Mazurka op. 7 no. 1

Very expressive and lively performance - you do an excellent job of bringing out the alternating contrasts in this piece - a pleasure to listen to.

[b]20. JoBert - Venetian Gondola Song (Songs Without Words - Opus 19, No. 6)

A beautiful lilting piece which certainly conveys a feeling of lazily meandering around in a boat on a river being rocked by gentle waves - lovely performance of this piece.

[b]21. Moo smile - Songs Without Words Op.67 no.5 in B Minor

A pleasant piece filled with very attractive chords which blended and melted together beautifully - also a kind of majestic quality was inherent in the music to me becoming more so as it progressed - very enjoyable.

[b]22. fishandchips - Invention 2 in C Minor BWV 773

Exquisite and positive performance of this piece with excellently played ornaments also. The left hand part seemed to have equal importance as the right hand and they fitted together so well. I enjoyed this very much.


[b]23. peterws - Mozart K331

An amazing performance - a colossal amount of work you must have put into learning this! No mistakes stood out to me - I thought you played it with a lot of vigour and the fun in playing it came through in the listening. Well done!

[b]24. MeganR - Summer Drought

An unusual piece with also unusual sometimes dissonant chords but which added to the interest. There seemed to be a troubled, anxious emotion being expressed in this music. A great performance.

[b]25. Greener/Jeff - Nocturne in Em, Posthumous. Opus 72, no. 1

Flowing, smooth and expressive playing of this lovely Nocturne and the trills were played so well. Really enjoyed listening to this.

[b]27. Keselo - Waltz

A nicely played little piece - you seem to be progressing well after only a year and one month experience. It was a treat to listen to.


[b]28. GoldmanT - Memories of Green

Unusual and very atmospheric piece, this effect being added to by the reverb. Had some beautiful harmonies and exciting touches - well played.

[b]29. Ralph L. - Introduction and dance (piano+keyboard)

I enjoyed listening to your performance of this piece which was made into a popular recording in the UK by the Welsh singer Mary Hopkin in the late 1960's. It is what she is mainly remembered for. Your performance shows you are progressing well after only 1 year of learning piano.

[b]30. Medden - Giorni Dispari

Welcome back to the Forum ! Excellent performance and all praises to you for playing this from memory - proof of the hard work you have put into it. Very well played.

Another great piece from you as usual. I always enjoy listening to your stuff on SoundCloud. I'm surprised this one isn't on there?

Thank you very much everyone who commented on the piece I played and everyone who participated in the recital. My apologies for the late reply to this thread, the last few weeks have been crazy, didn't really have much time. But I did listen to all submissions when time permitted and enjoyed them immensely!

What a great time to return to PW.
Congratulations to all the pianists. I'm not going to do any individual comment this time but I've been listening some of the pieces in loop.
Thank you all.

PS: I know that recital #50 is the next one, but I've been away from my piano in the last 10 months and I think I will not join the party...
I can try to recall some old piece but, even in this case, I have no idea how it will sound.
