Performer's name:lvojnovic
Experience:4 years
Direct music link:click to download
Title of piece:Prelude in b minor
Duration:02:08
Source of music:henle sheet music
Instrument used:Kawai BL51
Recording method:Yeti Blue + Audacity
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:As always I postponed recording of my recital piece until the last week before the deadline and then I got sick. I was not in the mood for practicing let alone recording. Today, last day for the submissions, I am feeling a little bit better so I gave recording a try. I think it turned out good, maybe a little bit slow, but that goes with my current mood smile
Big thanks in advance for all feedback!

Title of piece:Gavotte in G minor BWV 822
Composer:Johann Sebastian Bach
Duration:02:29
Source of music:Sheet music from Musicaneo.com
Instrument used:Roland FP4
Recording method:Zoom H2 with audacity
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:I heard Barbaram play this Bach piece in PW Recital 56. I loved the sound of her performance of Bach's Gavotte BWV 822. It is one movement of Bach's Suite in G minor. I'm away from my Yamaha grand for the winter but wanted to submit this recording using my digital piano. I still have more practicing to do on this piece but the recital date arrived.

Title of piece:La Profondita del Buio
Composer:Ludovico Einaudi
Duration:04:01
Source of music:'Ludovico Einaudi - The Best Of' sheet music album
Instrument used:Kawai ES110, Pianoteq 6
Recording method:WAV file recorded by Pianoteq, converted to MP3 with Audacity
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:Changing my submission to this piece was a last-minute decision, one that cost me the coveted #1 position in the Recital line-up. But as Handyman declared, 'someone will have to submit an Einaudi piece - the Recital can't proceed without one - it's in the (unwritten) contract... ' And nobody else seemed to have anything prepared.

'La Profondita del Buio' ('the depth of darkness') is from Einaudi's groundbreaking 1996 album 'Le Onde', a suite of pieces composed on the theme of a solitary man walking along an endless beach. A detached treble sings over a slow continuous bass motif. The result is hypnotic and haunting, hinting at sadness or despair. La Profondita has not appeared previously in an ABF Recital.

Monica was keen to hear my version of it, but it wasn't ready all those months ago. It's still not quite there, but at least Recital #57 can go ahead now ...

Title of piece:Little Prelude in E minor (BWV 941)

Additional info:This piece sinked within me as I played it a lot while testing various accoustic pianos recently. I prefer it played slower than in most recordings that I listened to. I believe it reflects its character better. Enjoy smile

Title of piece:"The Alcotts" from the Concord Sonata
Composer:Charles Ives
Duration:07:03
Instrument used:Yamaha C3
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:Charles Ives was a unique individual who made a living as an insurance executive and who never made any money from his music. Yet today he is considered one of the greatest and most original American composers of the 20th century. He wrote a series of essays about the Concord Sonata, which has movements for Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry David Thoreau, and the Alcotts.

This refers to the real-life family (not the fictional family) of Louisa May Alcott, the author of "Little Women". I see it as a picture of the family at home. We have the sister Beth, playing the piano in the parlor, the father Bronson (a radical educator and transcendentalist) in his study, shaking his fist at heaven. And the author Louisa May, sitting at her tiny corner desk upstairs, above it all, observing and recording. Listen for those 3 characters!

This will be the final piece on my upcoming recital at school. I have been hoping to play this for years - Ives is one of my heroes - a true amateur musician. His US postage stamp portrait is also my PW avatar!

This recording is from a practice session. At one point I stopped and made sure I had the right chord - sorry about that!

The music is not easy to read: large sections with no bar lines; polytonal, with different key signatures in the hands; a 12 tone set section; a whole tone section; a faux 19th century parlor song in the middle. And Ives' famous "quotations" from music that is important to him. Listen for Beethoven's Fifth Symphony and the Wedding March.
