Welcome to the 50th AB Forum "Beginners and Beyond" Online Recital!!!!

We have a special treat before we launch into the usual instructions and, of course, the music. Because this is such a major milestone in the history of the recitals, we asked two special individuals to give us their thoughts on this event. The first is Frank Baxter, the man who started PianoWorld and gave us this home-away-from-home where we can share our love for piano and music, and the other is Mr Super-Hunky, the man who came up with the brilliant idea of holding the online recitals in the first place. So, with no further ado, it is my pleasure to introduce:


Frank Baxter --- Founder of PianoWorld

First, CONGRATULATIONS! To everyone involved in the ABF, and particularly to those who have participated
in the recitals over the years, you are to be commended for showing the world there are still lots of people who love the piano, and
that they can put all other differences aside and get along because of their shared love of the instrument, the music, and the people!

A few words about the 50th recital milestone! ok more than a few (I'm known for rambling on, please bear with me)...

I started Piano World as a hobby over twenty years ago. I had discovered the Internet (oh wait, that was Al Gore wasn't it?) and
was fascinated by the ability to reach out to people across the country and around the world. My father was a Ham operator (those
of you too young to know, look it up) and the Internet reminded me of this.

A few people happened to stumble upon my posts (back then it was at something like http://www.tiac.net/users/pianos/...) and they
asked me some questions which got me thinking about other things I could post. The more I posted, the more people came around to visit
and interact (you can see some posts from 1999, 2000 here: forum.pianoworld.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/919373/forums-nostalgia.html

That's when I started thinking just maybe Piano World (it was called All About Pianos in the early days) could make a small difference in, well, the piano world. I've loved the piano as long as I can remember (which some days is about 2 hours, but that's another story). My goal has
always been to get others interested, and help those who want to learn to play, fix, restore, buy, sell, ... pianos.

Today the one area of Piano World I am most proud of is our forums. I love that so many people gravitate to our forums and participate in
conversations (or lurk, as I know many of you do). And the forum I'm most proud of is the ABF. The ABF was spun off from another forum
years ago, as a place where adults could feel comfortable whether they were just beginning their journey, or returning to it after a many
year absence.

And I'm particularly proud of you folks for creating and maintaining the recitals, Bravo!
Imagine, the 50th recital! Wow! Now that's a milestone you can all be proud of.

For anyone who doubts they can learn to play the piano, or that they can "perform in front of others", this is the living proof.
And I love that you all encourage each other, it isn't a contest, you aren't being judged, it's encouragement and fun, just what
piano playing should be.

Kathy and I have had the privilege of attending piano parties all across the U.S. and even some in Europe.
The premise is the same as the recitals, it's to have fun and share your love of piano with others, period!

In closing (I know, you thought I'd never get there) I want to thank all of you for being kind to one another and for
making Piano World, and the piano world a better place.

Looking forward to the next 50!

All the Best,
Frank and Kathy
From Piano World Headquarters in Parsonsfield Maine



Mr Super-Hunky --- Creator of the AB Forum Recitals

From our modest beginnings of just trying to figure out how to post a 'compilation of members recordings', to the well oiled [and administered] machine that it is today, our Adult Beginner Forums "Beginners and Beyond" quarterly online recitals have come a long way.

It was through the combined efforts of many ABF members who contributed their time and talents over the past twelve years to enable these quarterly recitals to evolve into the huge success that it is today featuring over 500 performers from all over the world. This is something that everyone involved, from the administrators to the performers, can be very proud of.

It has been said that "Music is what feelings sound like", and that statement couldn't be more true after listening to the amount of thoughtful effort and emotional input that goes into each and every ABF recital submission from our members. We truly are a unique group of people who have realized that our musical journey IS our destination!

Looking forward to the next twelve years as the journey continues..

Mr Super-Hunky.

Performer's name:Teddy J.
From:Houston, Texas
Experience:~ 1 year
Direct music link:click to download
Title of piece:Ballade no. 1 in G minor, op. 23 (Excerpt)
Composer:Frederic Chopin
Duration:04:06
Source of music:I used Paul Barton's notated scores. https://goo.gl/ApDUc2
Instrument used:Kawai Concert Performer CP-155
Recording method:I used an audio pole (boom pole) in order to pick up both of the speakers on the digital piano, and converted it to mp3.
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:I'm more than aware this is not the perfect rendition of the Ballade. I feel bad to have to cut this piece in parts, as the entirety of it is beautiful. But due to a constrained amount of practice and performing time, this is the best performance I can give. I am aware as well that I am being (probably too) ambitious to be attempting this Ballade at one year, but being sixteen, I know I have to play some catch-up if I want to be a classical pianist full time. I plan on finishing and cleaning this Ballade to perfection, and continuing to participate in these recitals for the foreseeable future. Please give as much constructive criticism as you are willing, I want to improve myself in any way I can. Thank you!

Performer's name:SMA55 (Shepherd)
From:Chicago originally, currently residing in St. Louis
Experience:Self-taught as a child, then stopped playing for decades. Began classical lessons 4 years ago.

Title of piece:Romance
Composer:Franz Liszt
Duration:03:13
Source of music:Memorized from sheet music
Instrument used:Steingraeber & Sohne D232
Recording method:Zoom H4n for audio, Zoom Q8 for video. Mp3 converted via Audacity. Audio and video synced using iMovie on my Mac.
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:Liszt's "Romance" is a little gem of a piece that is not at all well known, and its history is a little complicated. It was written originally by Liszt as a young man, apparently as a vocal composition, but it was all but forgotten by him. Nearly 40 years later, a music dealer uncovered the score and sent it to Liszt, and the former asked the latter if he would allow him to publish it. Liszt was so surprised to have seen this long forgotten work of his that he titled it "Romance oubliette", or "Forgotten Romance". He then rewrote it for solo piano, and titled it simply "Romance". (Liszt also scored the work for piano and violin, piano and viola, and piano and cello.). It's unclear whether or not the piano version was ever published during Liszt's lifetime, as it first appeared posthumously in 1908.

I myself am partial to the less showy of Liszt's compositions, and so this one is in definitely in my wheelhouse. I've now submitted three Liszt pieces to the ABF recitals, and this one happens to be my favorite. I hope you like it, too. Thanks for listening!

Composer:F. Chopin
Duration:06:13

Instrument used:Feurich 218
Recording method:iPad + Tascam
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This Grande Valse Brillante Opus 18 was Chopin's first published
waltz, which I guess is fitting for this occasion! Thought I'd give
myself a challenge and try it for this recital and challenged I was!
It took me about a billion tries, and there are still quite some
mashed notes but its the best I can do for now, so here goes nothing.

Title of piece:Les Rozeaux (The Reeds), Treizieme Ordre, No.2
Composer:Francois Couperin
Duration:05:14
Source of music:Sheet music, mostly from memory
Instrument used:Grotrian-Steinweg 189
Recording method:DPA4060, EMU0404, Jecklin Disk, Macbook Pro
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:Francois Couperin came from a musically talented family - his father and his father's brother Louis Couperin were well known organist in Paris. When his father died (when he was 11), he already was promised to get his father's position as organist at 18 and got a regular salary there at 17. At 24 he succeeded his teacher at the royal court as well.

This piece comes from his 13th Ordre, 1722. All the ornaments in Couperin's works are highly detailed, but generally performers had quite some freedom to change these to good taste. But I mostly stick with the score in my performance.

Title of piece:High Heels
Composer:Ludovico Einaudi
Duration:05:12
Source of music:Essential Einaudi - Islands
Instrument used:Yamaha AvantGrand N2
Recording method:Same as usual. Audio out from the AvantGrand N2 into microphone of Sony FDR-AX33 HandyCam, producing an MP4 file. The audio file is then extracted and noised removed using Audacity. It's then added back into the video file along with making it black and white using ffmpeg. It's old school, command line approach, but it works.
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:Thanks for listening, if you choose to do so. This is now the 3rd Einaudi piece I've learned. I really enjoy playing it. It's quite relaxing. There are some missed notes and a beat of one measure is missing, oh well. It's forgiving piece though. There are probably many ways to play it and it will still sound good.

I wouldn't say it's a technically challenging piece, it really didn't take that long to learn, although I don't have it memorized. The RCM pieces I've been working on for the exam in August are probably more challenging. But, Einaudi always sounds good smile

Now I need to find a new Einaudi piece to learn. Any suggestions? Lunch? The usual salad and pumpkin seeds.

Composer:J.S. Bach
Duration:03:56

Instrument used:Yamaha P22
Recording method:Sony Handycam with audio extracted using Audacity (with ffmpeg and lame plugins)
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This is my first public performance since 1988. It's also my first go at a fugue which was a huge challenge to learn. I focused so much on the fugue that my most glaring mistake was in the prelude. Oh well.

One thing I find particularly amusing about playing the fugue is when the left pinky holds down a low C for the last 4 measures while the rest of the left hand plays another 30 notes!

From:Auckland, New Zealand
Experience:Sixty-seven years
Direct music link:click to download
Title of piece:Improvisation (concluding 6 minutes of 60)
Composer:Ted Jones
Duration:05:54
Source of music:Pure improvisation
Instrument used:Weinbach 5'10" (1971) rebuilt in 2005
Recording method:Zoom H2
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:I am here because of Sam's kind invitation to members in the general Pianoworld forums. I do not consider myself either pianist or musician in the generally accepted sense of those terms. The last music teacher I had was over fifty years ago and I worked at a factory for thirty years before retiring ten years ago; I am now seventy. Most established genres, classical, jazz and so on, fail to interest or move me any longer and although I composed many such pieces in earlier years, some of which are on the Pianoworld CD, theory is still a total mystery to me, and I just create my own music in the form of recorded free improvisation. I guess the fact that I only started doing this seriously at fifty-eight qualifies me, albeit in a peculiar way, as an adult beginner. Most of my recorded improvisations, which number around 380 since my retirement, last anywhere from 60 to 100 minutes and are very diverse in content. This is the concluding few minutes of today's and is not necessarily typical of anything else I have played or am likely to play. I seldom have the slightest notion what is going to happen when I start playing; that is part of the fun.

Pure or free improvisation would seem to be an ideal musical path for an adult beginner, as it requires no musical knowledge of or adherence to, any established idiom, past or present, and can be executed at any level of physical technique. It probably won't lead to fame, money or perpetuity but its internal rewards in later life are immense.

Additional info:Due to my busy schedule preparing for a concert with my music group in May playing 6 pieces for orchestra, decided to rework 1 piece that was worked on before the Christmas break. The tempo was a bit slow and uneven. Took a week of on & off practice with the focus on the orchestral pieces to get to an ideal tempo.

Duration:04:29
Source of music:'Ludovico Einaudi - The Best Of' sheet music album
Instrument used:Kawai ES110, Pianoteq 6
Recording method:WAV file recorded by Pianoteq, converted to MP3 with Audacity
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:'La Nascita Delle Cose Segrete' translates as 'the birth of secret things'. It is from Einaudi's i Giorgi solo piano album (released in November 2001), composed following his travels throughout Africa.

I'm following in the footsteps of my role models with this piece. It was CarlosCC's first Recital submission, when he'd been playing the piano for only 11 months. I'd kept putting it to one side, but it was Monica K's polished performance six months ago that inspired me to re-visit it and try to have it ready to record. This is the closest I've managed yet.

Carlos and Monica, thank you! You'll notice the still-rough bits, but hopefully few others will ...

Additional info:Thank you for the invitation to play.
I haven't contributed for a while but this will be my 20th submission. I have always submitted original music and I continue this tradition with 'Saying Goodbye' a tune I wrote a very long time ago. I have submitted a couple of versions of this to the Piano Bar in the past (one quite recently) but this is a new version recorded for the 50th recital. I know the form pretty (very) well so I managed to get a decent enough version in one take (after a bit of a warm up). Lots of improvisation in this one and quite different from my last recorded version so definitely under the heading of Jazz.

Title of piece:Prelude #15 op. 28 "Raindrop"
Composer:Chopin
Duration:05:46
Source of music:Sheet Music
Instrument used:Bosendorfer 214VC
Recording method:Zoom to audacity
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:The history of this piece is believed to be as follows. Some, though not all, of Op. 28 was written during Chopin and George Sand's stay at a monastery in Valldemossa, Majorca in 1838.[2] In her Histoire de ma vie, Sand related how one evening she and her son Maurice, returning from Palma in a terrible rainstorm, found a distraught Chopin who exclaimed, "Ah! I knew well that you were dead." While playing his piano he had a dream:

He saw himself drowned in a lake. Heavy drops of icy water fell in a regular rhythm on his breast, and when I made him listen to the sound of the drops of water indeed falling in rhythm on the roof, he denied having heard it. He was even angry that I should interpret this in terms of imitative sounds. He protested with all his might- and he was right to - against the childishness of such aural imitations. His genius was filled with the mysterious sounds of nature, but transformed into sublime equivalents in musical thought, and not through slavish imitation of the actual external sounds.[3]

Sand did not say which prelude Chopin played for her on that occasion, but most music critics assume it to be no. 15, because of the repeating drone, with its suggestion of the "gentle patter" of rain.[4] However, Peter Dayan points out that Sand accepted Chopin's protests that the prelude was not an imitation of the sound of raindrops, but a translation of nature's harmonies within Chopin's "genie".[5] Frederick Niecks says that the prelude "rises before one's mind the cloistered court of the monastery of Valldemossa, and a procession of monks chanting lugubrious prayers, and carrying in the dark hours of night their departed brother to his last resting-place."(Niecks, Frederick (2009). Frederick Chopin as a Man and Musician)

I really enjoy playing this piece. It has such deep emotion. The biggest challenges are keeping the drone regular and subdued, voicing the large chords properly, and creating the build of the tension. The Youtube video is better than the mp3. I submitted it later, but did not want to resubmit.

Title of piece:Adagio from Sonata Pathetique, Op. 13
Composer:Beethoven
Duration:05:10
Source of music:Sheet music
Instrument used:Sauter upright with Pianodisc silent system, Galaxy Vintage D
Recording method:Silent system via MIDI cable to notebook with Galaxy Vintage D, recorded with Savihost plugin
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:I was a bit uncertain what kind of piece to submit for this very special recital. Some less-known piece to discover would suit as well as one of the great piano hits everybody knows. I eventually opted for the latter. This recording is the third version from April, 18th. I discarded my two former versions from February and March which I did not like any more after having heard Rubinstein and Yundi play this piece on Youtube. The main difficulty of this piece lies in putting the different voices in relation to each other.

Additional info:This is no where near perfect, but I figured this is a good time to get some feedback on it. That being said,I am way more comfortable with the first and second movement than I am the third. Its a work in progress, but not too terrible considering I've taken about the past 5 or 6 years off and decided to pick it back up with a great teacher!

Additional info:This is my second major piece to have learnt since restarting last September (2017). I was initially thinking I had bitten off more than I could chew when I chose this piece, but my piano teacher suggested I "go for it". I struggled for a while with the first 16 bars thinking I would never be able to play the whole piece, but eventually it started to come together and I have got it to the level in this recording made on 1 May 2018. Although this was a long struggle (4 1/2 months) it has taught me a lot about voicing and control of the left hand and I do think it was worth the effort in the end. However I feel it is about as far as I can take it without much more experience and time.

Additional info:I transferred the music onto paper via "Flat" notation software. Its fairly new, I think, and very innovative. Even I felt able to handle it with little bother, and in time it becomes a faster way to write music.
The song was another throwaway ditti; fun to play around with. Trouble is, when it's written down you can't play around with it . . . .or, you don't feel inclined to. So it's no longer much fun to play.
You move on. Write another.
It's like being on an eternal treadmill. And that sounds like a good next title . . . .shrug. I need a drink.

Instrument used:Boston 118 PE
Recording method:Logitech C920, Blue Yeti mic to Macbook Pro

Additional info:Composed around 1849, in the Nocturne style, this piece is felt to be in homage to Liszt's contemporary, Fredric Chopin, who had recently passed.

I recorded this piece as an adult beginner, with about 4.5 years experience. On initial takes, I found my tempo slower than the professional recordings, so I increased it for this one. A few mistakes exist, and I didn't nail the 16th note passages as well as I could have, but it was my best take, so here it is!

Title of piece:Abendmusik (Evening Music), Opus 99, No. 12
Composer:Robert Schumann
Duration:05:05
Source of music:Henle edition sheet music
Instrument used:Kawai Novus NV10 with Pianist Mode "Classic"
Recording method:Built-in recording, converted to MP3 with Audacity
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:Abendmusik (Evening Music) is No. 12 in Schumann's Opus 99 "Bunte Blaetter" (which translates to "Colorful Leaves", basically meaning "Various Sheets" in this context). After the Album for the Young, the Bunte Blaetter were another commercial success for Schumann and his publisher Arnold. It combines a number of compositions from various years, from 1836 to 1849.

With its title "Evening Music", and with the mainly p and pp dynamics (except for two sudden but very short fortes), and also with the sometimes quite long, explicitly marked pedal passages over several measures, this piece evokes in me pictures of sitting on a porch or terrace, maybe with a good glass of wine, looking over a nice garden or maybe a lake or mountain vista, with the day coming to a calm end and the sun setting, while the birds settle in for the night. Even then, it has a few interesting, almost dissonant chords and cadenzas, which sometimes, quite suddenly, pierce through the calm evening mood - until it all settles down in the end.

And congratulations, and thank you, to the organizers and the community for reaching the milestone of the 50th consecutive quarterly ABF recital! It is also a personal milestone for me, as this is at the same time the 10th consecutive recital that I participated in. Yay!

Additional info:You probably want to watch the video - I put on a tie...

This is my 36th consecutive quarterly recital - I started with number 13. It's been a great experience. I've learned a lot, gotten plenty of valuable experience, and struggled with the deadline every 3 months. I'm so glad I had the courage to start participating. I would not be playing as well as I am if I had kept my music to myself.

Tootles and I have been married for 38 years. She plays better clarinet than I play piano! This is a great piece, the first movement of a jazzy sonata. The piano part is more difficult than it sounds - sorry for the mistakes. I have played it better - honest!

Thanks for listening!

Composer:Rachmoninoff
Duration:05:37
Source of music:Memorized from an old copy of the Schirmer collection "59 Piano Solos You Like To Play"
Instrument used:Pianoteq 6 Steinway D (Chamber Recording BA) driven by Roland FP-30

Additional info:I loved listening to my mother play this piece when I was a child. As such I always considered it "her piece" and never seriously attempted it, until late last year I finally felt like giving it a go. I'd like to play it a little faster but, obviously enough, I'm already struggling with accuracy at this tempo.

While this famous prelude certainly lends itself to bombastic (outer sections) and heavily romantic (middle section) interpretations, I prefer the performances I've heard with a lighter touch, emphasizing what I think of as its tragicomic character.

Source of music:Solo piano arrangement by Patrik Pietschmann; link to hear him playing it the way it should sound, as well as a link to purchase the sheet music can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZGBxiNPu3k
Instrument used:Mason & Hamlin A
Recording method:Audio mp3 file recorded with Zoom H4, amplified in Audacity. YouTube video recorded with Zoom Q8.
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:My husband and I jumped very late on the Game of Thrones bandwagon, starting to watch it only last fall. I was immediately captivated by its beautiful soundtrack, and I looked for a solo piano transcription I could play. I found an arrangement by Patrik Plietschmann on YouTube (see link above) and immediately fell in love with its combination of bombastic, driving octaves in the first half and the dainty, delicate melody in the second half. So I set about trying to learn it. I found it technically very challenging--I'm not used to playing octaves fast, and the second part required a hard workout of the 4th and 5th fingers to voice the melody properly. And then there's the huge leaps in the bass at the very end. Hoowee. I don't think I've ever played it all the way through without a major blooper, and my recording is a good 50 seconds slower than Patrik's, but it's still a heck of a lot of fun to play. I should note that I had to modify four measures (leaving out a note of certain chords) to have any hope of playing it even at my slower tempo. Last, I also played the last couple of measures a few octaves higher, as I thought that better captured the tinkling harpsichord effect of the original soundtrack.

Lunch was leftover pasta with roasted butternut squash, kale, and toasted pine nuts.

Title of piece:Arabesque no. 1
Composer:Claude Debussy
Duration:04:44
Source of music:sheet music
Instrument used:Samick "upright grand"
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This piece is a special one because it's the first one I learned by myself. I was supposed to learn it with my past teacher's help 2 years ago, but she decided that it was too advanced to be an introductory piece to two-against-threes. She eventually left mid-semester and our polyrhythm lessons were discontinued. Over the past two semesters, I have been working on all 3 movements of Beethoven's Sonata no. 8, Op. 13 (Pathetique), and although the polyrhythm found in the 2nd movement was little, I had grasped the idea. I decided to start working on Debussy's Arabesque no. 1, since I fell in love with it the moment I listened to it 2 years ago, and was pleasantly surprised at how much easier it seemed now.

Regarding this recording, there really are a lot of mistakes here and there (the pedals, missing notes, sudden change in tempo, etc) but I decided it was better to submit this than to spend another hour in frustration trying to get a perfect recording. My perfectionisim - 0, Ael - 1. Also, it was around 10 pm when I recorded this, but I feel the cricket noises somehow make the piece feel more relaxing. Or maybe it's just me.

We recently moved to a new location and it has affected the piano's sound quality. Hence, it sounds horribly out of tune, especially during the first parts. The pedals are also somehow not working very well on my left hand keys. I'll get this checked as soon as possible, though.

Constructive criticism is much appreciated.

P.S. Paul Barton is one of the best pianists out there when it comes to interpretation! His YouTube videos of this piece helped me a lot.

Additional info:I feel in love with this piece the first time I heard it, which would have been in May, August or November of 2010 I don't remember. I do remember presenting it to my first teacher saying I longed to play it , and she said - well...we can try.
Needless to say, in my first year of playing it was waaaaay beyond me. After working on Traumerei last year, I figured I was ready for this - and so took the plunge.
Again, needless to say, it was much easier to tackle 7 years on in my piano journey!.
I've now done my first set of BIG THREE longed for pieces (Traumerei, The Town I Loved So Well, and this Waltz. I will have to start planning the next big adventures!

I recorded this a week or so ago and I have no idea what I had for the closest meal to the recording, but I did do it in one take! It's also the first time in a long time that I have made a video.
The video includes paintings I've done, mostly since January, and mostly with pastels (though one is watercolour). I am VERY new to painting - so don't expect any masterpieces smile

I've been enjoying it so much that painting is a little bit in competition with piano - but just a little bit! I try to paint in the morning when there's more light, and do piano later in the day.
So.... I hope you enjoy your listening, and if you choose, the viewing as well. I know I've had hours and hours of pleasure preparing for this!
