84. mel_lem (Melanie) - Sonata in D Major Hob.XVI.37, First Movement

HOW do you play so clean. HOW? HOW?!!

I think Classical is a great genre... and one that shall be forever on my horizon!

Kudos.

85. PikaPianist - Prelude Op. 6, No.1

And into emo Romantic. Love the phrasing and control and dynamics. The wind is blowing off the moors and Heathcliff is coming for me, I am sure of it.

63. Tim Adrianson - Time Remembered

Had a teach a long time back who loved Bill Evans and I think you really got his soulfulness. I bet my teach would have loved this rendition. This kind of off-the-rails stuff is like another country to me.

36. Tubbie0075 - Mozart Sonata K331, 1st Movement

AFTER THE FIRST PAGE TURN and the double time. How can I consume your piano essence and make it mine?

I love the varied personalities of this movement of this piece.

Congratulations to everybody who contributed to this most momentous recital! Once again I took shameless advantage of my admin position to start listening to the submissions early, so I can post my first ten now. smile

01 – Teddy J. (Chopin Ballade): I wasn’t familiar with this Ballade of Chopin’s; I liked the almost swing-like feel of the rhythm. I'm not qualified to offer informed feedback on classical pieces, but I think it's astonishing you could play this well after only a year or so of playing.

02 – SMA55 (Liszt Romance): This unbelievably lovely piece has me re-evaluating my preconception of Liszt (whom I associate more with fast and bombastic pieces). It also has me seriously envying your gorgeous piano. Love your playing of this!

03 – UnderConstruction (Grande Valse Brilliante Op. 18): This is a piece for which the adjective “jaunty” was seemingly invented. You make it sound easy, but I know pulling off all those runs and ornamentations at that tempo had to have been tough.

04 – wouter79 (Les Rozeaux): This is another piece full of tricky sounding ornamentations. Good job of maintaining an even tempo despite the challenges in the right hand.

05 – BSharpCyclist (High Heels): I’ve played this piece, so I know that even though it’s not technically challenging, as you say, it is full of so many playing minefields (e.g., having to play the bass pattern super quietly without skipping notes, playing with emotion etc.) that it is nonetheless hard to pull off a clean take. I love your rendition. As for your next Einaudi, I’d suggest “I due fiumi” (if you want something a bit easier) or “In un’ altra vita” (slightly harder).

06 – Jason Lenthe (Prelude and Fugue in C major): Bach is always hard, and this one is no exception–the prelude is nonstop action and totally unforgiving of any skipped notes or hesitations, and the fugue ups the antes with ornamentations thrown in. You rose to these challenges well. Bravo!

07 – Ted (improvisation): Talk about impressive! I run out of musical ideas after trying to improvise for two minutes; I can’t imagine improvising nonstop for an hour! I liked how your improv was never repetitive yet seemed to flow smoothly from one musical idea to the next. You win the Keith Jarrett award for the recital (and if we don’t have such an award, we should. laugh ).

08 – thepianoplayer416 (Bach Minuet in B flat): Okay, so this is the third Bach in 8 entries, and I’m going to start to sound repetitive: Bach is just plain hard, and I thought you did a great job of carrying out all the separate voices despite nonstop action–your tempo did not sound slow to me!

09 – MarieJ (Einaudi): This is one of Einaudi’s underrated pieces, I think; it’s so delicate and has such a memorable melody. As always, you show your affinity to Einaudi with a beautiful performance. I liked how you were able to keep the tempo even, instead of speeding up noticeably on the chorus part the way I always did/do.

10 – jazztpt (Saying goodbye): Oh, I’m so glad you found the time to contribute to this recital! I’ve always enjoyed your playing. This piece could well stand as the definition of “smooth jazz”; I loved the combination of the strong melody over the growling bass line. An impressive composition/improvisation!

Thanks for the kind words! I was nervous about sharing but the community seems to be very constructive and supportive. I really appreciate it. smile

Wow - this has been THE most exciting Recital yet! Thank you Piano World, thank you Mr Super-Hunky (love that user-name smile ), thank you Monica, thank you Sam, thank you to any other behind-the-scenes elves who had a hand in making this happen, and thank you to all those fellow 'ABFers' who decided to join the party! Now for LOTS of wonderful listening!

01. Teddy J. - Ballade no. 1 in G minor, op. 23 (Excerpt) What an amazing start to this Recital. A terrific achievement!

02. SMA55 (Shepherd) - Romance Stunningly beautiful - and that goes for your Steingraeber too smile - thank you for a very special treat, Shepherd.

03. UnderConstruction - Grande Valse Brillante Op18 Lots of sparkling variety here - it sounded as if you really enjoyed the considerable challenge. And I really enjoyed listening!

04. wouter79 - Les Rozeaux (The Reeds), Treizieme Ordre, No.2 An unfamiliar piece, and while I’m not qualified to give useful feedback on matters classical, I can say that I really appreciated your performance.

05. BSharp(C)yclist (Dan) - High Heels I’ve also played this, so I know that (like most of Einaudi’s music) getting it to sound right is trickier than it first seems. You captured the mystery of this piece - lovely! If you’re looking for something else from the ‘Islands’ album, ’Nefeli’ and ‘Le Onde’ are both worth considering.

I would have worked on a piece by another composer. In the beginning of May I had to perform with my community orchestra. We played a few technical pieces including "Jupiter" from Gustav Holst "The Planets" so had to divert my piano practice time to the only piece I worked on before Christmas. A piece like this was most likely performed on a Clavichord. A few hundred years ago before there was sound recording or the metronome, composers would insert tempo references like Adagio, Andante, Allegro, etc. into the score. A piece that has no tempo reference, Players tend to be flexible what they feel should be the appropriate tempo. A technical and repetitive piece like this, performers tend to push for a faster tempo.

12 - Pianist685 (Adagio from Sonata Pathetique, Op. 13)

I love this piece and your recording sounds like a professional to me. Really enjoyed it.

10. jazztpt - Saying Goodbye

Accomplished command of lyrical phrase and free rhythm, very enjoyable indeed.

16. peterws - Troublesome Treadmill

This suggests new ways to take the ragtime idiom, well done.

Thanks Monica, glad you like it. I cannot imagine being able to play the piano in other ways and not constantly wanting to do this sort of thing, yet so few do, especially trained pianists. I would be terribly frustrated without it.

63 - Tim Adrianson (Time Remembered)

I've forgotten that I'm listening to recital, just enjoyed the music. It was beautiful.

02 SMA55 (Shepherd) – Liszt, Romance Oh, how wonderful. I love this piece and your rendition. To be honest, I was quite surprised what I got when I clicked on your recording since I expected Liszt’s “Romance oubliée” from 1880, this one
www.imslp.org/wiki/Romance_oubliée,_S.527_(Liszt,_Franz)
but the version you are playing is much better. Is the score somewhere in the internet?

10 Jazztpt – Saying goodbye Oh, please, don’t say goodbye, say hallo again! But apart from that, a very enjoyable jazzy tune.

14 Alan Chandler – Beethoven Adagio You really know how to put emphasis on the melody while making the accompaniment soft. Congratulations! I enjoyed your recording very much. Your “long struggle” paid out, you are mastering the piece very well. It looks easier than it actually is, right? I would like to hear more from you.

16 peterws – Troublesome Treadmill I would not throw your piece away, it is quite unique. How would you call this style? The intro sounds a bit like new age, then comes some slight Ragtime appeal followed by some kind of rock piano.

31 Ed Riddler – Blue in Green Two colours that usually don’t go together well. Nevertheless, they do in this piece. Beautiful warm jazz chords.

42 PatH – Play piano, play (Gulda) What a fun piece. Swinging, Gershwin-like. I did not know the composer before, though, according to Wikipedia, he was a world-class contemporary Austrian pianist and composer.

46 Roger Ransom – Stardust One of the great classics. You are a perfect bar pianist. Just had a cocktail while listening to your music.

56 Serge88 – La maladie d’amour (Revaux/Sardou) Fantastic, romantic rendition and wonderful piano arrangement of yours. You do know how to play things by ear. Félicitations! To all the American folks here: you know Jacques Revaux and Michel Sardou without being aware! One of their greatest hits in France was a song entitled “Comme d’habitude” (“As usual”). It was taken up by Paul Anka who wrote some completely different lyrics and gave it to Frank Sinatra who had one of his greatest hits with it: “My way”.

59 Elaine Allegro – Beethoven Adagio Congratulations to your fantastic rendition. 100 likes. Your jolly comments were rather fun to read. I hope you swept up those notes that fell to the ground.

63 Tim Adrianson – Time Remembered (Bill Evans) A piece with much depth and substance I did not know yet, thanks for introducing me to this sad-sweet jazz tune.

69 h8dk97 – Kleine Studie (Schumann) I would not call this piece easy, it sounds easy but it isn’t. It seems to be some precursor to “Von fremden Laendern und Menschen”. Pianissimo on an acoustic piano… Yes, there are so many acoustics that need some better regulation. But you are mastering the pp very well.

It's late and I just got home from work. But I couldn't wait to listen to the recital. So I randomly listened to a few:

02. SMA55 (Shepherd) - Romance
Such lyrical, sensitive, emotional and beautiful playing.


03. UnderConstruction - Grande Valse Brillante Op18
Commendable effort! This is one of the many pieces I want to eventually learn.


06. Jason Lenthe - Prelude and Fugue in C major, BWV 846
Sorry I completely skipped the prelude and went straight to the fugue. I thoroughly enjoyed it!


11. SwissMS - Prelude #15 op. 28 "Raindrop"
I should return to this piece when I get the chance. Thanks for reminding me how beautiful this piece is.


85. PikaPianist - Prelude Op. 6, No.1
I continue to aspire to your sensitive playing and musicality. This piece reminds me of Rachmaninov's Elegie.


Will listen to the recital properly when I get the chance.

100. Glen R. I like it. It has a very mysterious quality. Number of years ago I did a series of very short, ambient works I called "Snippits". This reminds me a lot of that. It sets a mood, is short and to the point. Well done! (And the piano sounds great)

92. Mr. Super Hunky. Well I for one have really missed your presence here at the recitals. Glad you are back. And from your playing I would never guess at the troubles you have had the last few years and lack of playing. Mighty nice.

90. Whizbang. I'm always in amazement at anyone that can play ragtime and you are no exception. Really fun piece.

Congratulations everyone on a very successful and breathtaking jubilee recital. 100 submissions is almost unbelievable! cool

I've listened to a first batch on my way to work and during the lunch break. My comments below are from memory, so please excuse it if they are short.


01. Teddy J. - Ballade no. 1 in G minor, op. 23 (Excerpt)
A nice piece and nice playing. Granted, one can hear the rough edges, but it's on a good way.
One suggestion: If possible, next time I would record via the line out connection of the piano, instead with a boom mic.

02. SMA55 (Shepherd) - Romance
Wonderfully played, with very good expression and feeling. Makes me think I should maybe also start to look into the "less showy Liszt pieces"...

03. UnderConstruction - Grande Valse Brillante Op18
Very nice performance, catchy and with verve. Fun to listen to!

04. wouter79 - Les Rozeaux (The Reeds), Treizieme Ordre, No.2
Nicely played. Not one of the often seen composers here in the recital.

05. BSharp(C)yclist (Dan) - High Heels
Wonderfully played with good expression. Doing Einaudi justice!

06. Jason Lenthe - Prelude and Fugue in C major, BWV 846
A nice little pair, well played and totally worth the effort you put into it!

07. Ted (Ted Jones) - Improvisation (concluding 6 minutes of 60)
Wow! That was impressive! And very enjoyable to listen to. Some of it gave me vibes of late Romantic pieces...

08. thepianoplayer416 - Bach Partita 1 - Minuet 1 in Bb (BWV825)
Good that you found the time to submit this in spite of your busy schedule. Very nice to listen to!

09. MarieJ - La Nascita Delle Cose Segrete
Nicely played and wonderfully relaxing. Thanks!

10. jazztpt - Saying Goodbye
Your long years of experience are really evident in this. The composition, improvisation (although I'm not competent to know which parts where improvised smile), and of course the playing. Wonderful!

11. SwissMS - Prelude #15 op. 28 "Raindrop"
That's quite a forbidding background story! Nonetheless, a beautiful piece, and beautifully played!

12. Pianist685 (Constantin) - Adagio from Sonata Pathetique, Op. 13
The recording with the Vintage D worked out very well I think. Enjoyable to listen too, with the voices well differentiated. Just a few rhythmically uneven bits here and there though (but that's "Meckern auf hohem Niveau" wink). Very nice!

13. Paige - Sonatina op 36 no 3
I don't feel competent to give in depth feedback, but I think you are on a good path with it. An authentic and enjoyable performance!

14. Alan Chandler (akc42) - Pathetique Sonata Op 13 2nd Movement (Adagio Cantabile)
The CA67 sounds good! grin And the playing too, of course. Very nice! One can hear that you have put a lot of effort into this. I would certainly keep this fresh by playing it every now and then, so that you can revisit it once you feel you have progressed enough.

15. GoldmanT - Bruyeres
I enjoyed this very much. You are right, I did indeed not hear any wrong notes. wink Even with your admission of the latter, it sounded as if you were fully in control of the piece. Very nice!

16. peterws - Troublesome Treadmill
Didn't sound troublesome at all to me. I'm impressed! A very catchy composition - wouldn't mind at all to hear "Eternal Treadmill" in the next recital....

17. cmb13 - Craig - Consolation 3 in Db - Lento Placido
Very nicely played, full of expression and feeling. It does indeed give vibes of a lament over a recent loss.

I'm going to start from the back. I'll probably do a handful a day so as to not overwhelm myself. There is a lot to listen to! I'd like to be able to read each participant's background info they provided and follow along with sheet music while listening, if possible. Perhaps I'll learn something smile

100. Glen R. - Duet for One

Nice job Glen. I followed along with sheet music. One thing I can hear my teacher saying is exaggerate the dynamics, the parts between mf and p. Piano sounds great.

99. micael K - Ronda alla turca

Great job! I think you play in playful fashion, not sure what others mean "child like". I just recently started learning this piece with my teacher. I think it will take me a LONG time to play fast. I'm struggling with those left hand 32nds and making sure you can hear each note played.

98. stambler / Dave - Miss Wardlaw's Favorite

Nice job, Dave. I followed along with the sheet I found on the website you provided. Challenging piece with all those trills.
