To riff on this great idea, what if this wasn't a recital, but instead a new thread/thing on PW. "ABF Requests" where someone says they'd love to hear a piece played that they are learning/would like to learn, and then people form the forum can confirm they will learn it (or may have already learned it) and record it, perhaps even with specific tempos requested or the like?

Outo, if you're going to be moderator for both the Slavic and Nordic themed recitals in Oct 2018 and 2019, respectively, I'd say just go ahead and plan on it. What I would do, though, is get the "official" submission invitation for the Slavic recital going right now -- October isn't all that far off. Speaking for myself, I've got compositions of Janacek, Dvorak, and Szymanowski in mind. I'll also see if I can identify a couple of Russian composers who specifically sought a Slavic sound -- Balakirev, Mussorgsky, and Borodin certainly fit that mold

Sounds great...I will post a thread as soon as I get some proper computer time.

So many interesting ideas. The only things that come to my mind are...

A recital of unusual, underplayed pieces - where the Moonlight Sonata would be strictly prohibited laugh. The exact criteria would be hard to define, but maybe some good judgement could suffice.

And a recital for piano 4-hands and piano + another instrument, or even chamber music. Although it would be difficult to have more than a handful of pieces, it might encourage people to get together and prepare something different.

Oh, and we could have a recital with only pieces by female composers! There are quite a lot of them, not just the big Romantic ones who mainly wrote difficult stuff, but also in the 20th century.

Can we have a Sticky called - โ€œUpcoming Recitalsโ€? Something I can bookmark and go directly to?

Iโ€™ve been wanting to join a recital but itโ€™s difficult to find all the individual threads. I donโ€™t stop by the forums everyday, and when I see the official threads - itโ€™s usually only because the recital is already near and people are bumping up the thread. (Or worse, I only see the thread because everyone has already posted their performances)

And we are the dreamers of dreams.

Great idea. I love playing obscure pieces and lesser known composers. Let's make a "Rare Gems Recital"!

Female Composer recital is also interesting.

A couple of times, over in the Pianist Corner, they have had an "Unsung Heroes" recital of lesser known composers. They were not saved in any way, as far as I know (not using our recital software), but it might be possible with a search for "Unsung Heroes" to get an idea of what they played.

Could do a New Age or Contemporary theme which I think would include Einaudi, George Winston, Yiruma just as a few examples. At the same time it could include contemporary classical composers.

Hi, PikaPianist (and sinophilia)! I also could provide numerous submissions, both for lesser-known composers and female composers -- mainly from the 20th century, and mostly American. What I am NOT, however, is computer-savvy, otherwise I would volunteer to moderate a Rare Gems e-cital of that sort. In the Piano Corner Forum, in addition to the Unsung Heroes recitals of 5-7 years back, there were several other Themed e-Citals that did not use the Quarterly recital software package, but were moderated independently by a few enterprising souls. In those cases, I and the other participants sent the recordings directly to them via PM, and they assembled the programs themselves. In the case of the Unsung Heroes moderators, their e-Cital software was hacked, ruining much of the program, and they never returned to it. I'm only mentioning this because there are alternative approaches apart from the Quarterly ABF software.

The software is very convenient though and the work is really not that bad, it's quite fun. And it's not difficult either.

If you really want such a recital, I am sure someone will volunteer to admin it...

These are the dates I know of - please correct or add to this list if I am wrong. Please report dates using the month name to avoid any confusion with international dates!

Quarterly Recitals are always February, May, August, and November, opening for submissions on the first of the month.

Debussy recital is June 2018 (just a few days away).

Slavic Themed Recital is October 2018.

I would be interested in organizing another Great American Songbook recital. I liked the last one, because it was "easy" for people to prepare something. Basically I just set a cutoff date, I think it was in the 1960s(?), and any popular music before that was allowed, but I was not really interested in enforcing any rules. The last one was in September 2015. I was thinking maybe December 2018, and encourage holiday music? Any thoughts on this?

I thought I had seen something proposed for 2019, but can't remember what it was.

I would love to see another GAS - and including holiday music expands the options even more. Great idea!

It was the Bach recital (March 2019), right? It needs to be moved here.

The Nordic Recital will be in October 2019.

It is a bit crowded maybe, but the more the merrier, right?

GAS with holiday music is a great idea. Every
year I try to learn one Christmas song anyway...

Cas, I sent you a pm with a link to the Bach recital.

Thanks.

Perhaps I should wait until the Bach recital is a bit cooled off, as it is still very lively, but as I had to miss it (having no Bach repertoire myself frown ), I wonder if there are any themes yet for any upcoming themed recitals, or was the Bach recital the last one that has been scheduled so far?
