23. Jobert- Lovely playing. Just a great feel and touch.

25. Ralph L.- Hey...that was fun!! The split video was excellent with your synth coming in like that.

35. lyricmudra- Boy you have such fantastic control. What wonderful playing. Bravo.

45. Gandolf- Wow, from one pro to another. You and lyricmudra just blow me away with your ability. Just magnificent.

And now you have caught me red-handed. Yes, I avoid Haydn and Mozart, Handel too. In fact I have never played anything by Haydn or Handel in my life. I learned a Mozart sonata several years ago and the verdict from the teacher was my performance was as dry as a science lab report. I don’t think I was completely crushed, and even thought her comment was funny and spot on, but I haven’t played a note of Mozart since.

But I do accept your challenge, Ganddalf. Do you have a piece to suggest?


I suggest for you a movement of Haydn sonata in A-flat major. I think it is HOB XVI 46. The first movement is very delicate and would suit your technique and instrument very well, I think.

5. Ted- Very cool! I love the playing but also just the all around sound. I realize you played and recorded this years ago but it really does have an almost "old" quality to it. Very different tunes too. The first was total cool jazz and the second more contemplative.

Thanks for listening, pleased you like it. I decided to post something less modern this time. Until I was about fifty-five all my compositions and improvisations had conventional form in one genre or another and I can still play like that if I want to. The “old quality” is probably because it was made using a tape recorder. I’ll likely be back to free improvisation next recital.

Wonderful piece. Best o' Brahms, maybe? Very evocative, but I'm just wondering which emotions are being invoked. So pleasant and rolling in places and there's that rather haunting refrain which pulls it all together. Great job.

42 ThePianoplayer416

Nice. Very short, but that's how it is sometimes. Not heard much George Frederick here, so - a welcome change!

43 Newbert

So many arrangements of this popular song. I did one myself, in an attempt to play something jazzy. It didn't really work, but was fun going there. Nice job here, man. Sounds cool . . . .

45 Ganddalf

I can stand a bit o' Ludwig, and in your hands it's going to sound good. Not heard this before, but I like the variations B puts in. Major to minor, and plays around with the fairly straightforward central them a lot. And keeps coming back to it, like a child (or dog) cautiously exploring new territory. Super work, and sounded like fun.
Isn't my feedback terrible? smile

46 Piano2138

Sounds good on your 585, a clever little piece which I enjoyed. Well done.

47 Michael K

Poulenc did some good stuff, and this is an articulate, interesting piece of music which lifts one's spirits. Great job!

48 CebuKid

Good work on this far from simple piece which you handled with confidence and a firm hand.

49 Piano Primo

This sounded fine on the Casio. There's usually plenty of resonances on Pianoteq; maybe you could adjust stuff, if you liked. Good steady work, nice to listen to.

50 Pika Pianist

Great pro sound from you and piano. Lovely and lively!

A nice piece definitely but short definitely not.

Due to my busy schedule I submitted a condensed version for the recital. A full version with the 2 Variations after and all the repeats has been uploaded a week later:

I'm listening to these here and there, but I wanted to contribute a few comments:

PianogrlNW--I have never heard anything like this. Such a lovely piece, but it also is clearly ragtime-ish. I love the expression you put into it.

MarieJ--This is so beautifully played! I think playing something slow is a really vulnerable thing to do; it makes the expression stand out so much, but you do a terrific job.

StumblerDave--I love this piece! I have never heard of that composer, but I am going to look him up.

Jazztpt--I had to listen to this based on the name alone, and it so perfectly captured my mood on this rainy day in the southeast. I am curious where you got your inspiration for it. It was absolutely beautiful. I am really impressed with your talent.

55. noobpianist- Very nicely done. I generally don't go for "added strings" and just prefer the piano but you did it will. You play very smoothly and with great control. A very enjoyable listen!

Do we sometimes take ourselves and our musical idols a bit too seriously? If so, Peter is our antidote:

I value the positive feedback and thank anyone who has commented on my piece.

I am now working shifts and, frankly haven’t quite acclimated yet, thus the “backward” progression I’ve seemed to have taken with “beginner” pieces.

But as a word of encouragement to those who have done the same with an instrument,.. you’ll get to your “in the zone” in your own time.
Especially if you keep at it.

I’m going to listen to more pieces in the future but what I’ve heard so far was impressive!
- as far as the recital “vet” players …. Surprising in style !

just glad to be a part of this.

P.S .It may be my imagination, but when I got a new computer my playing suffered, because it didn’t have the better sound card my old one had, and I noticed when recording /practicing…i.e. a Creative Audigy.
Now I found an expansion slot in my new laptop the takes an Audigy 2 …, SO- I’ll be a pro !!!. smile hahaha
No harm believing in magic…with this kind of thing. ...I'll be doing symphonies in no time .


Cheers!!!

A few comments from me.

05. Ted Jones - Improvisations on original tunes - there is a lot music in those fingers, fascinating listening I must say and truly one from the archive, great stuff Ted

12. Pianist685 (Constantin) - Nocturne Op. 37 No. 1 - Lovely playing Constantin and a super recording, loved the concert hall reverb.

14. Peyton - Questa Notte - Great as always, has an old English folk song feel about it, to me anyway.

15. Riddler (Ed) - Naima - yes a hard one but you made a very listenable version in your own style, well done.

17. peterws - Coming Home - Easily could have been written for the video, it seems to fit perfectly with the sound of the waves. Lush sounds indeed.

22. cmb13 - Craig - Nocturne 20, C# min - What a mood this piece conjures up, of course I know it from the film, it's as if time stands still, well done.

26. Monica K. - Stella del Mattino - Nice performance you obviously enjoy playing this piece.

35. lyricmudra - Vocalise Op. 34 No. 14 - Love this piece and of course you play it beautifully.

38. Serge88 - Something - Nice arrangement and I enjoyed the screen show too :-). well done.

43. newbert - Misty - Nice changes, don't hear this one much these days so it was a treat, thanks.

44. jotur/Cathy Turnr - White Christmas - Surely meant for the November recital but always nice to hear anyway.

48. CebuKid (Herb) - The Lonely Man, Theme from Incredible Hulk - Had to laugh at the figure on the stand, very good playing, well done.

36. QuasiUnaFantasia - Kind im Einschlummern
very nice, delicate sound

39. Mosotti - Canon Fantasy (to do)
classic piece, beautifully played, and interesting camera angle in the video too

40. Greywullf - Chopin Nocturne in F minor Op. 55 N. 1
sorry but can't help but thinking about Rick & Morty every time I hear this piece smile sounds great though

42. thepianoplayer416 - Sarabande from Keyboard Suite in D minor HWV437
good work on this great piece. Hope you'll manage to paly the other two parts with the same success wink

43. newbert - Misty
love it

46. Piano2138 - In the Spirit
always like Norton's stuff! well played

50. PikaPianist - Sonatina Op.55 No.1, 1st mvmt
one of my favorite sonatinas, I think your playing was one of the best of the whole recital, although I must say, I heard a few notes that surprised me, I don't know if it's just different versions of the sheet or you changed some stuff on purpose, or I just don't remember the piece well enough smile

56. Sam Rose - Prelude in C# Minor
wow, really impressive!

Thanks for listening, glad you like it. I can't play the sort of jazz you play though, no exposure to it I guess; but to each his own, we can only be ourselves.

A few more comments from this slow commenter.


05. Ted Jones - Improvisations on original tunes
Wow is all I can say.

18. timmyab - Moments Musicaux no 4
The time you've spent learning this piece certainly shows. I don't hear your unfondness of the middle section in your playing. The contrast in playing the outer parts is striking, I like both.

31. Sam S - Piano Sonata 12 - first movement
This is one of my favourites.

44. joturCathy Turnr - White Christmas
It's surprising how we only remember main chorus of songs like this one. You've captured the mood well.

57. Pathbreaker - Nocturne Op. 84 no. 8
I don't know Faure's Nocturnes. I obviously need to correct that. This is a beautiful piece.

11. zsolpyW - Hexameron variation no.6
This is a surprise. I don't think I've heard this Chopin before Well played.

A few people asked the same question about the other 2 parts (Variations 1 & 2) Due to a busy schedule, I only managed to submit the first part of the piece (the condensed version) for the recital. I have the full version posted just over a week later. Here is the link:

Nicely done on the Chopin. You not been playing it long, and one might expect a few problems in a piece of this type. She'll be right on the night!

52 Yamaha G3&P80

Don't know too much about Puccini apart from he was probably Italian. But this had a certain feelgood factor about it. You did well playing this from the sheets.

53 Squidbot

Beethoven sooner or later will manage to trip one up! There are many fine bits in here, and you did darned well to get through this in one!

54 Ivojnovic

Nice. Quite lively; you played it steady as she goes, and the whole thing flowed well!

55 noobpianist

The strings gave it a good, other-world feel to it; they weren't too loud. Good blend. nicely done!

56 Sam Rose

Nuthin' wrong wi that. Your piano sounded well, as it should of course. A fine piece of music to play on it, and, well, you ain't bad yourself. This does get loud, but that's music.
Excellent!

57 Pathbreaker

This sounds great! I need to take a closer look at Faure. A pro performance and so well recorded!

58 Stumbler

Evocative music here, it'd sound good on the fiddle. Sounded good on the Roland. Nice!

59 Ralphiano

A smooth listen. Jogs along in fine style. I haven't heard it before, but that's the beauty of these recitals. Well done!

Thanks everyone for a great listen. Always good to hear new ones, and the oldies too. I'm talking about people AND music here . . .

Special thanks to our organisers, without which these recitals would not happen, It's one of the best motivational tools we have!
