The ABF Bach Themed recital is now open for submissions!

The deadline is March 15 at 9 PM Eastern US time.
Please note this deadline is firm and cannot be extended.

This recital is dedicated to J.S.Bach. Any piece by him or a transcription of his work that includes keyboard playing is welcome.

About the recital:
1) Duplicate pieces by different members are allowed
2) You can submit as many pieces as you wish
3) Piano duets are allowed

There’s a file size limitation given below, but you can contact me if your piece exceeds that and we'll see if something needs to be done.

There's a separate sign-up thread. However it's not compulsory to sign up beforehand, you may just submit a recording.

If you have any questions you can ask here or PM me (outo).

Important information:

I may change the order of submissions before the recital goes live, but usually the submission are published in the order of submission.

Editing or digital alteration of your performance (other than minor edits such as trimming long silences at the end or beginning of the piece) is counter to the 'live recital' spirit of the AB Forum Recital and is thus strongly discouraged. In any event, any editing should be disclosed in the "additional information" section of the recital submission template.

Recital submissions must be in MP3 format. The maximum size of the file is 20 MB. We recommend encoding the recording at 192 kbs with a constant bitrate, as that works best with the online streaming player. At that bitrate, a 20 MB file works out to be about 7-9 minutes in length. Your recording will be normalized when placed in the consolidated zip files, but your original link will still be available for those who want it.

If you are new to recording your music, there are several threads in the forum archives that address the ways and means. See the "Important Topics in the AB Forum" thread stickied at the top of the AB forum page. Audacity is an excellent free recording application that can be used.

If you're new to the forum and the recitals, I encourage you to browse through a few of the past recitals to see what they're like. An easy way to find past recitals is to use Sam S.'s extremely helpful recital index, located here:

http://recitals.pianoworld.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

How to submit your recording:

We will be using the wonderful automatic web-based recital program that mahlzeit wrote. You will upload your mp3 file to the recital server as part of the recital submission process.

When you have your mp3 file ready, go to:

http://recitals.pianoworld.com/

Follow the instructions there. Once you have uploaded your info to the automated recital software, you will receive a confirmation e-mail. You will have the opportunity to revise your submission any time up until the deadline. If you have any problems at all using the new website, or if you do not receive a confirmation e-mail within a few hours, just PM me. If you have not participated in past recitals using this software, I strongly encourage you to submit your recital piece at least a day in advance in case you run into any problems with it.

The recital website uses the following submission template to be filled out along with your attached music file. You may want to have your responses to these fields prepared in advance so all you have to do is cut and paste:

Performer's Name: {forum ID and real name if you'd like}
Where you are located: {optional}
Avatar image link: {optional}
Experience: {Yrs/Mos of piano playing experience}
Link to YouTube or other video: {optional}
Home page link: {optional}
Title of piece/composer:
Source of music: {sheet music, improvised score, play-by-ear, etc}
Instrument used: {Piano make, keyboard model, etc.}
Recording method: {audacity, Zoom, digital to PC, etc.}
Constructive technical feedback wanted: {Yes/No}
Additional Info: {Your thoughts on the piece, what you had for lunch, etc.}

The due date for all submissions is 9:00 pm US EASTERN TIME on Friday March 15, 2019.

There will be no exceptions! The recital will be published after this time.

By submitting a piece to the recital, you are certifying that it is a recording of your own performance.


You can revise your entries on the template (e.g., thoughts about your piece, adding YouTube links, and the like) any time before submissions close.

Thanks to Schubertian for initiating this recital!

Looking forward to all the submissions,
outo

I submitted mine, but with two more weeks I will try for a better take. Will have to find a moment when the workers nearby stop using their jackhammers for at least 4 minutes...

Glad we were able to get the Bach recital up. Thank you!. I've been itching to get that piece out the door for awhile.

Me too! I was going to put it on the ABF quarterly, but then i found this . . . I'm in with the first of two. Hope the blurb doesn't go awry like it did on the quarterly. We'll see . . . .might be because I use a Chromebook.

Hi, outo! You can eliminate either 8 or 9 from my submissions -- I don't know why that is happening; the same thing occurred in the Quarterly Recital. The only thing I did differently from my other submissions, which did not appear in duplicate, is that I listened to the MP3 recording I entered (which the program invites you to do, just to check that it loaded properly). Whether there's a software glitch in the program that creates duplicates under those conditions, I don't know -- but I thought I'd pass on that observation; it seemed to happen several times in the Quarterly e-Cital.

Noticed the recitals page is down. Hopefully the submissions entered weren't lost due to whatever forum problem they had.

Well, the files are there - probably a database problem. I'll send Frank a message.

I tried to re-record but whenever I strive to be more expressive I end up making too many mistakes. The one I submitted is not so bad after all, and the tempo is okay I think.

Question - Can I submit a link to a youtube video? Or do you require the recording in audio format only?

The mp3 recording is required, or you can’t complete the submission process. A link to a video is optional.

The mp3 file is saved to the PW server, so it won’t become a dead link in the future.

I just submitted my first piece (of two) and it looks like it may have been duplicated somehow, although I thought I did it properly. I got two submission confirmations with different codes. Sorry!

Megan, that's no problem, you can either delete one of your entries using the magic code you received or I will delete all duplicates before the recital goes online. I

Finally uploaded my 5 submissions! I apologize that I uploaded as many as I did, but I've had a Bach filled year leading up to this recital. Looking forward to hearing everybody's playing smile
