Additional info:I would like to present cover of one of the greatest rock music hits, "Stop Me Now", performed by the legendary band Queen.

The cover was written by Sangah Noona and it is best arrangement that I could find.

I have to admit to few bad notes but it's my best recording.

If you are interested you can find on Youtube performance done by author of the arrangement and compare with mine. I am curious what do you think about interpretation and piano sound differences (grand vs my tall upright).

Source of music:Lead sheet
Instrument used:Yamaha Clavier
Recording method:Pianoteq/Audacity
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This is a modal ballad written by Miles Davis in 1959. The melody is quite simple, but the harmonies are sophisticated. The form is "circular", meaning that when the song is played over and over, it is difficult for the listener to tell where the song begins and ends. I am playing from a lead sheet, unaccompanied.

Duration:03:15
Source of music:Sheet
Instrument used:PX 100
Recording method:direct to laptop and Edirol DX synth
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:"Winter Light"
it was the first piece I learnt on my grand piano about 9 years ago.
I heard the piece when watching the movie "The Secret Garden", and the sound of the solo piano struck me, I felt the beauty of music.
-for me this piece has a t personal aspect.
Maybe someday I'll write that story.
I had recorded this piece previously and posted it in the 'piano bars". It was quite awhile ago.
This is today's recording. I thought about what I've gained since I learned this piece 9 years ago:
Piano wise I'd say a lot of theory ,
my limits ....(which is good to know ,but they might be an illusion?)
No ..Nah, they're real.
And the lyrics seem even more true with getting "mature'? smile

AND ...The technical stuff: Recorded on a Privia PX 100 direct to a dell laptop with stings and through Cakewalk Edirol for the piano only solo.

Title of piece:Mozart Sonata K331, 1st Movement
Composer:Mozart
Duration:07:15
Source of music:Mozart Piano Sonata Volume 2, Henle
Instrument used:Yamaha Upright (AMEB exam studio, Hawthorn Centre)
Recording method:Zoom H4N1
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This performance was recorded in the exam studio I hired for practise about a week before my AMEB grade 8 exam, in October 2015. I needed to test the piano and also familiarise myself with the acoustics in the exam studio. The piano keys were really light compared to my Kawai RX-2. The piano was very bright and the reverb in the room was bouncing everywhere.

I have learned this piece for over a year before the exam, along with the 3 other exam pieces. I have made a couple of recordings prior to the exam, and this was my best attempt. Though, I wasn't very happy with my articulation and some places, especially turns, felt rather rushed.

Unfortunately, I didn't play as well during the exam and made more than a few slips! The ventilation on the ceiling kept blowing my pages and it was very distracting! That said, this was my first (and last) AMEB piano exam, and I was, and still am rather proud of my exam results.

I hope you'll enjoy this performance.

Additional info:This is my very first recital, and I am so grateful for this opportunity to be able to do it online! I wasn't sure which piece to choose for this special event. Most of the pieces approachable on my level are either arranged or children oriented. I found the Etude (piece entered as a recital submission) in my workbook where it was listed as an original composition. I didn't like it much at first, but the more I was playing it, the more it grew on me. The piece has you running through the A minor scale harmonized by Alberti bass. Overall, I found it to be an excellent exercise for finger dexterity.

Title of piece:Andante sostenuto from Sonata D960
Composer:Schubert
Duration:07:33
Source of music:Dover edition
Instrument used:Yamaha AvantGrand N1
Recording method:Zoom H1
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:I dedicate my performance of the slow movement from Schubert's last piano sonata to my brother who died tragically in February this year.

This is why I have chosen this rather log piece for this recital. Moreover it is the second time within a year I play a Schubert piece here. Normally I try to avoid playing music by the same composer more than once during a period of at least two years. But because of the thoughtful character of this piece I found it appropriate this time.

The b-flat sonata (D960) is the last of Schubert's sonatas, and was written a short time before his death. The whole sonata is a masterpiece, but with a duration of about 45 minutes it is beyond my capacity lo learn. However, the second movement - Andante sostenuto - is relatively short. It is written in ternary form in C-sharp minor. Like many of Schubert's works it often shifts between minor and major keys and has many surprising harmonic turns. The middle part is in A-major and the whole movement ends with a coda in C-sharp major.

The first time the main section appears the melody is played over a rocking rhythm that requires frequent crossing of the arms. The contrasting middle part is more energetic, but even here frequent changes between light and shadow are evident. Schubert does not copy-paste the main section, but makes further developments of the thematic material the second time. A repeating three-note theme appears in the left hand. Perhaps you hear death knocking at the door here.

This piece hardly gives the opportunity to show off technically. But it is very rewarding to study and I enjoy playing it.

Additional info:This was a real brain freeze for me. The last piece in book one reviewed everything I learned. The hardest part (let me count the ways) was staccato in left hand legato in right hand, and pedal. I don't know why it was so hard for me. . . too many things to do at the same time. But it's been a lot of fun and I can't believe I've made it to here from there:-)

Additional info:This is a new recording of an old-time favorite that I've kept playing through the years, starting from 2014. It might not sound much different, but I certainly have a better understanding of it now. Some notes are too loud, some too soft, as always, but overall it's what I had in mind. This is a single take so I'm quite happy about it. Managed to bring out the left hand in the final part. It's amazing how many details one can still discover even in such a short little piece.

I'm grateful to PianoWorld and the ABF for the invaluable help and support! Happy to be part of this 50th recital smile

Title of piece:Staendchen
Composer:Schubert-Liszt
Duration:06:59
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:Schwanengesang, D. 957, No. 4, Staendchen
The song cycle was published in 1829, just after Schubert's death in 1828. This is the transcription by Liszt.

I've known the piece for so long after hearing my sister play an arrangement from a post-war medley found in our piano stool. I learnt the easier Liszt version of this a few years ago, not long after joining PW, in fact, and promised myself a go at the full transcription. So it's ready for Recital Fifty in an apt fifty years - and is the fiftieth piece at the time of submission!

So, having finally learnt it I'm ready to start working on it as a finished piece and can't wait to hear how I play it in a few years time. Maybe a potential submission for Recital 60!

I've seen some unfamiliar names on the rota this time, I hope to meet them in the forum in the not too distant.

My thanks go, as always, to the team for putting this fabulous opportunity together.

Title of piece:Moments Musicaux No. 3
Composer:Schubert
Duration:02:15
Source of music:Sheet Music
Instrument used:Schimmel Grand
Recording method:Zoom H2N
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:When I play this piece my inner voice is going "pedal pedal pedal pedal" because of how frequently I have to change the pedal, often on every 8th note. It's a sweet piece, and has only a few tricky phrases with double thirds. I'm now learning one of his Impromptus and the Fantasy in F minor (same key as this piece)for 4 hands.

Title of piece:Prelude in B minor op. 28 no. 6
Composer:Chopin
Duration:01:49
Instrument used:Roland RP501
Recording method:Phone
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:I had trouble getting a digital recording using this piano so in the end I decided to record the sound from the speakers. The sound quality is not as good as I hoped.

Like many "easy" Chopin pieces, this piece is technically easy but musically difficult. There are so many things I would still like to work on to make it sound better. All feedback and criticism is welcome.

I hope you enjoy it!

Finally was able to get to this submission! Time for lunch...

Instrument used:1927 Bechstein Model L
Recording method:Sam S.'s digital recorder!
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:At a concert of a Chopin Medal winner I attended about ten years ago, the pianist played as his encore the very easy Prelude in e minor, Opus 28 #4, something many young pianists can play. It was gorgeous! It made me realize that playing a less difficult piece allows you to concentrate on playing more beautifully, something I struggle with. So I am trying a few easier pieces, and Catherine Rollin has many beautiful but not difficult pieces to work with!

Additional info:My initial recording of this was for the August 2012 ABF recital and it was also my first recording of any piece. It was the beginning of a new phase of learning Piano that came at a time in my life I was very receptive to it. It has been a very worthwhile pursuit ever since.

Congratulations, ABF for this milestone recital. At last check we had hit the 100 mark for this one which is great to see. I am glad and proud to have been able to participate these years.

Title of piece:Sonata in f minor K 466
Composer:Domenico Scarlatti
Duration:04:03
Source of music:Sheet music
Instrument used:Baldwin Acrosonic upright
Recording method:Zoom H2n
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This is a beautiful baroque sonata, more challenging than it might sound. It didn't take me long to learn all the notes, and it's not particularly difficult in terms of the technique, but it took me a while to get to the level of musicality that is vaguely satisfactory. To bring out the voice in the left hand while making sure individual notes do not stick out was hard (and I'm still not quite there yet but it's much better than it used to be). Also, to do the phrasing and dynamics without romanticizing the piece too much has been a challenge as well. I spent the whole morning recording but then took a break, listened to what I had and realized my tempo was a bit too fast to my liking. So, I slowed down, and this produced a better result I hope. Thanks for listening!
