01. SwissMS/Doris - Polonaise in G Minor
Well done! I keep obsessing about this - how could a seven-year-old even play this piece, much less compose it? Hard to believe. But anyway, I thought you played it superbly.

02. JJHLH - Gnossienne No 1
A remarkable performance for someone with only 11 months of experience! You did a good job of capturing the sense of mystery that this piece evokes. Well done!

03. peterws - WHAT shall I call it??
Great stuff, as always, Peter. My name for it: Mornings on Horseback. You do a superb job of developing melodies, imposing structure, fitting the pieces into an overall arc. I loved it!

04. Sma55 (Shepherd Abrams) - Impromptu in Eb Major Op 90 No 2
If ever there was proof that we should practice our scales, this is it! The man could really make great music out of the basic stuff, couldn't he? Superb performance, your technique is very impressive.

06. Peyton - A Sad Journey
Excellent composition, well named. I love those parallel and contrary motion lines. There is nothing better than when lyrical melodies combine to create gorgeous harmonies!

[08. Jazztpt - End of the summer
A beautiful melody, nicely developed, with a touch of sadness to it, for sure. Welcome back. We missed you! Here's hoping you recover and continue to participate here.

09. BSharp(C)yclist (Dan) - Polonaise In G Minor, Op. Posth., B 1
Beautifully executed, Dan. Your technique seems perfect for Chopin - and that's saying a lot!!!

35. initK - Von Fremden Landern Und Menschen Op 15.No 1 (Of foreign lands and people)
The sound quality is not so good, but somehow, I still enjoyed it very much.
I've heard dozens of recordings of this piece, and there's always something that prevents the piece from flowing the way it should. Your recording is an exception. You've done a great job with this!

37. Mosotti - Minuet in G
You've done a great job, very clean, very good tempo. Impressive.
Two things which are a matter of taste:
- I'd play the left hand a bit louder, sinces it's has a voice of its own
- I'd take a shorter break at 0:47 because it almost felt like the piece was over
Still, very good!

38. barbaram - Op 49 No 2 2nd Mvt Tempo di Menuetto
Joyful playing, I liked it

43. MarieJ - La Profondita del Buio
Beautifully played, great touch

44. Purrblast - Little Prelude in E minor (BWV 941)
Beautifully played. The voices are clear, and the tempo is great.

46. Sam S - "The Alcotts" from the Concord Sonata
This sounds like a very complex piece musically. You've done a great job with it!

Thank you for your comments and advice smile

Yes, my teacher told me the exact same thing about the left hand, I just couldn't do it yet, my brain is not wired enough to follow multiple voices consistently lol

26. Serge88 - Mozart. Romance - Piano Concerto no 20 Lovingly played. Great job!

27. Greta99 - Rosemary's Waltz I have weak spot for waltzes and you found another one that is not overplayed (the other one that stood out for me was Rebikov, Feuille d'Automne where you captured the mood with perfect tempo). Rosemary waltz is a lot more complex piece being a jazz number, but as always, you delivered well. Thank you!
P.S. I'm hoping you will finish series of Labenske pieces.

28. Jason Lenthe - Motzart. Sonata in C Major (K545), 1st movement I think you did a very good job. I agree that to play cleanly, it's not a beginner piece. And it shows you have some stamina smile I enjoyed it!

29. Peter Hontaru - Elton John Your progress is very good for only 2 years, I would even go as far as to say that you should not rush it so much with exams etc. You are moving along very nicely. It's interesting to see live recording that is more like what recital would be. Wouldn't that be something for all to play in one big concert. Loved the song and you performance. Thank you!

30. AssociateX (Liz) - Clara Schumann. - Nocturne Op 6 # 2 Indeed very enjoyable listen. And I did like that piano sound! How wonderful o be practicing at such a place and taking lessons there. Good for you and thank you for sharing.

32. Piano_primo_1 - Bach. Menuet BWV Anhang 116 I like the style of your recording, but was afraid the keyboard would fall! Little rushed, but competent.

33. Handyman - Claude-Michel Schonberg & Alain Boublil. Empty Chairs at Empty Tables (from "Les Mis") This is special! Very very enjoyable. I was looking forward to listing to this submission and was not dissapointed.

34. ThomasPiano - James Arthur - Say You Won't Let Go I've really enjoyed the video. Great job on the song. Very successful interpretation.

36. KevinM - Mendelssohn. Song Without Words 19.6 Venetianisches Gondollied. This is beautiful and on my favorite list! I always wish it would be longer. Your playing is very musical, but sensible. Pedal is perfect and nothing is overdone. You have very good taste for music you are choosing to play, this is an art in itself. I'm always looking forward to your new recordings.

37. Mosotti - Minuet in G Classic! But I thought it was Bach and I think I have it in Bach's book. Great performance!


...I'm sorry for late comments, I'm a slowest snail in this pond. Still have fair number of pieces to listen and think about.

01. SwissMS/Doris - Polonaise in G Minor What a sweet little piece. You play it with a suitably light touch. I love that piano, it sounds awesome.

02. JJHLH - Gnossienne No 1 Good job in less than a year. Sounds like you've learnt how to pedal as well. I like the still life painting.

03. peterws - WHAT shall I call it?? Love this. I like particularly the happy playful sounding outer parts. It brings to my mind children playing in a garden.

04. Sma55 (Shepherd Abrams) - Impromptu in Eb Major Op 90 No 2 Good job. Impressively clean and even passagework in the A sections.

05. Ido - Sonatina in F major, Op. 168 No. 1 Movement 3 Standing ovation smile Very impressive for three years playing. You catch the playful mood perfectly. The appoggiaturas are beautifully done.

06. Peyton - A Sad Journey I can hear the journey metaphor in the music. To me it sounds closer to reflective than sad. Either way it definitely reflects that sort of mood. difficult to play I would imagine.

08. Jazztpt - End of the summer Beautiful mellow chords. Very soothing. Love it.

09. BSharp(C)yclist (Dan) - Polonaise In G Minor, Op. Posth., B 1Two performances of this piece, what a coincidence. I've never heard it before today. You play very well. I think you'll impress the RCM examiners.

10. facdo - Wintertime II - Op.68 No.39 Very musical interpretation. You play with imagination.

12. Ruth CM - Traumerei Very nice playing. You hold the tempo together really well.

18. PianogrlNW - Gnossienne No. 1 You nailed it this time. Lovely.

19. Claudemir Medeiros - Odeon Amazing to play this right through with no mistakes or hesitations after only three years. I'm impressed.

30 Associate X

A lovely piece reflecting maybe on Clara. Schumann went mad, I believe, after she died. makes you wonder . . . but you handle this music with panache. I enjoyed this. Ta for sharing; I'd never hear it otherwise. Females have been known to write some very nice music! smile

31 Winter Flower

Some interesting stuff in here. You're feeling around for moods of melancholy, or "if only I had my time again . ." Not the best reflection on life, I'm sure. Nor do I suggest you think this . . . smile
Worry not. It's the Merlot talking; it's excellent tonight!
I very much enjoyed your journey, but couldn't put a genre on it.

32 Piano Primo

Nearly there, man. but take it easy, more steadily; feel the song, the rhythm and work your way into it over time. Great sound.

33 Handyman

A hard piece, very reflective in the "was it all worth it?" scheme of things. Nicely done!

34 Thomas Piano

You've been listening to Adele too much . . . but in truth, such a lot of modern music is written following this pattern. I enjoyed it and imagine your spouse would be very appreciative! me and my missus totally ignore V day . . . we just like it that way!

35 Initk

A nice Schumann. I like playing these myself and do regularly. they have a pleasing feel to them, and you reflect this well.

36 KevinM

Excellent sounding piano, and you do it it justice. Nice, nice! Mendelssohn dies such melodious stuff which I just love . . . And I've not heard better.

37 Mosotti

Very nice work here for the time, your piano soun ded well too.

38 Barbaram

Good to hear a bit o' Beethoven, Very appealing stuff, and you're having fun playing this although it has it's complications!. Nice work here, I enjoyed it a lot.

5. Ido- My wife and I are here sitting on the couch drinking margarettas and greatly enjoying your playing. I'm not at all familiar with Diabelli's music but it was delightful. smile

7. Timmytab- Very nicely done. Did you do all three without stopping or were they all recorded at one sitting? Either way, really well played.

22. Gandolf- I think i'll give you my usual...WOW. Just wonderfully played.

24. snejana- Very interesting. I liked your interpretation (and recording quality) a lot.

They were recorded seperately. It took at least a dozen takes to get a clean recording of Glukes genug smile

Perfect! Children at play. Kids run around, they fall out, they cry. Then it's all forgotten, off they go again. Like nothing happened . . .

26. Serge88 - Concerto No 20 K.466 - Romance(Abridged solo version) this was a lovely light piece and you set the mood beautifully

27. Greta99 - Rosemary's Waltz your rubato and touch in this piece was stunning. Thank you so much for sharing.

28. Jason Lenthe - Sonata in C Major (K545), 1st movement Very clear and concise playing and well suited for this period!

30. AssociateX (Liz) - Nocturne Op. 6 # 2 the phrasing and rubato was beautiful in this piece. How awesome that you're in the evening division classes at Julliard!

31. winterflower - February Noodle I have zero advice to add as I can't even improvise smile but can say from a listening from enjoyment perspective that I thought your phrasing and use of dynamics was very nicely done!

32. Piano_primo_1 - Menuet BWV Anhang 116 nicely done, thanks for submitting

33. Handyman - Empty Chairs at Empty Tables (from "Les Mis") you really brought out the emotions in this piece. I watched Les Mis once on Broadway and also really enjoyed it!

35. initK - Von Fremden Landern Und Menschen Op 15.No 1 (Of foreign lands and people) I love this piece and had been meaning to learn it.

39. selfishplayer - Waltz op64 no2 C# minor nicely done, thanks for submitting

40. lvojnovic - Prelude in b minor you did a great job on this Chopin given your short experience! I myself prefer slow and clear playing over playing with more speed but losing the style and character, and I thought you played it very nicely. Hope you feel better

42. Sarvesh - Fusion and variation on Scherzo and Etude (to do)

11. Calavera - Not Tomorrow
This piece develops so nicely, setting a foundation and building on it. Well played!

12. Ruth CM - Traumerei
A timeless classic, played very well. I liked it.

14. thepianoplayer416 - Sicilienne
I did not recognize the name, but as soon as it began I recognized the beautiful melody. Your execution was wonderful.

18. PianogrlNW - Gnossienne No. 1
Haunting, mysterious, Superb performance of this masterpiece!

21. PikaPianist - Piano Sonata No.12, III. Funeral March

And a few more...

09. BSharp(C)yclist (Dan) - Polonaise In G Minor, Op. Posth., B 1
Good work, Dan!

10. facdo - Wintertime II - Op.68 No.39
Very good work. But I would say your piano is more than just “a bit” out of tune. And if I’m being honest, it spoils my enjoyment of your recording. But as I said, I can still recognize the very good work you’ve put into this piece.

11. Calavera - Not Tomorrow
Pretty nice. But there’s too much pedaling for my taste. I don’t like hearing the various harmonies overlapping. I’m not sure if it’s a technical issue with your playing, or if it’s what the composer is asking for in the score. But either way, I don’t like the unclean sound. Otherwise I think you do a good job with the piece.

18. PianogrlNW - Gnossienne No. 1
Not an easy piece to play! Requires a steady beat in the left hand, while the right hand more freely does its thing, sometimes even meandering a bit. And I think you do an excellent job on all counts. Well done!

ABF Recitals have become such an exicting part of my life. I can hardly wait for the next one. As always, fhanks to the people who commented on my performance. I appreciate the feedback.

I've listened to my recording again with your comment in mind. I can hear it and, worse, I can't unhear it now. The pedai is definitely too prominent, at least in some parts of the piece. I'm afraid that's neither the composer's nor the arranger's fault. II'll try not to overdo it with the pedalling the next time I play this. In this piece though, it can be tricky to take your foot off the pedal at the right time and avoid harming the continuity of the melody.

A few quick thoughts about some of the submissions.

2. JJHLH
Beautiful playing with perfect expression.

3. peterws
What a fun little piece! It sounds pleasantly light-hearted.

4. Sma55
As far as I can tell, you play this with great precision and musicality. I love the subtle changes in dynamics throughout the piece.

5. Ido
You do sound like you're having fun with this piece. And that's a job well done in my book.

6. Peyton
Great composition with a fitting title. Listening to this conjures up images of someone embarking on a long train journey and wistfully thinking about the things and people he/she's leaving behind.

8. Jazztpt
This could pretty much be the theme song for my state of mind when summer ends. Nice playing!

12. Ruth CM
Enjoyable and suitably dreamy performance. Impressively accurate too for a first take.

13. Ralph L.
Maybe the title is influencing my perception but this sounds filled with strong emotions.

17. Riddler (Ed)
Despite my passing interest in jazz, I'm not familiar with this piece. There are certainly worse ways to honour your wife! Thank you for sharing this and playing it so well.

18. PianogrlNW
Wonderful melancholy performance.

20. JoBert
Really fun and entertaining. Peter Jackson is a bit of an oddball, but at least the soundtrack for the LOTR and Hobbit films is pretty good. You display great dramatic and tone changes in this performance.

22. Ganddalf
Nice upbeat playing! Sounds accurate too.

24. Snejana
A competent and gentle performance. Thanks for adding to the variety of the submissions!

25. Griffin2417
Great playing. I like the sometimes subte changes in expression. Beautiful ending.

26. Serge88
It sounds flawless to me. Pefect little changes in dynamics.

27. Jason Lenthe
Nice, even playing throughout the performance.Impressive work!

29. Peter Hontaru
What a lovely performance of Elton John's hit. It's so full of musicality in all the right ways.

30. Associate X (Liz)
Impressive masery of the gentle expression and tempo in this performance.

34. ThomasPiano
A wonderful composition that instantly makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside.

35. initK
Nice delicate performance. I think your piano skills deserve better recording quality, but I still enjoyed this.

36. KevinM
Amazing! Since the November recital, I've found your performances to be consistently impressive in terms of technique/accuracy and enjoyable in terms of musicality. Mendelssohn really is a great fit for you, and I look forward to hearing your future submissions.You, sir, are a good artist.

38. barbaram
Sounds good. If you can play the other movement as well, your performance for the Beethoven recital should go swimmingly.

40. lvojnovic
Nice. I think the slow tempo suits the piece.

43. MarieJ
Thank you for submitting an Einaudi piece. Beautiful playing too. I can totally picture the man walking alone on the beach.

45. tt368
I've always been fond of the Greensleeves tune and you do it justice with this nice, gentle performance.

46. Sam S
Another interesting piece that helps bring variety into the recital. This is the kind of piece I'd have a hard time playing well, but you did a very good job.

My wife used to play this. It sent our little lad to sleep when he was sitting in his catapult - seat under the grand piano . . . .You don't sound dissimilar. This is hard, and ideally it should be lively, fast. But it sounds good as it stands, and you're certainly getting the speed up nicely when needed.

40 Ivojnovic

This coming on fine. I dunno how fast t goes, but you're playing it with accuracy and diplomacy. Nice.

41 Joangolfing

Very tuneful piece which I liked. It has some bits in it that are similar to what I wrote in mine. So I'm on good ground, and - so are you! Well done.

42 Sarvesh

9 months in and you're playing a grand! And your playing was grand, young fella. I heard the applause at the end . . smile Well done! You hve so much time to have so much fun on that piano! Well done!

43 MarieJ

I thought we'd get some Einaudi before long. So meditative, relaxing and those notes ring on for ever. Enjoyed.

44 Purrblast

Delightful, mellow, pleasant. Lovely sound on your Jo-anna.

45 tt368

An excellent take on Greensleeves. Credited to King Henry the VIII, he'd be proud. And let you live. I like the variations. Nicel;y done.

46 SamS

Love to hear about posthumous composers who never get recognised in their lifetime. We are a dying breed . . . Nice powerful playing Sam, but I can see why he didn't make it in his time. . .

47 harpoon

Summertime. Great effort here, You'll be flowing effortlessly soon with this.

48 Quasiunafantasia

Piano sounds lovely, and your work is relaxed with a pleasant feel to it. You're in a good place. Very nice thoughtful playing. A fitting piece to finish off this recital.

And it was a good recital. Love the variety on offer, music, instruments, Here's to the next one. Just finished a glass of cheap, excellent Sainsbury's House Cote de Rhone. I recommend this highly. Nice favour. Dunno about the nose, mine's blocked . . .

Thanks Peterws,
I like the motivational comments [and anyone else who commented ...Sam... and ...Marie] I sort of know my playing has sort of "gone retro" instead of ahead.. smile
When I practice more consistently, hopefully, I'll be the virtuoso I was meant to be LOL.
Besides, not meeting the goal is the motivation to practice, So I guess you never really "get there".

Hello Everyone!
I've finally gotten to take the time to spend and give my full attention to all of this beautiful piano playing. I'm not one who is into a lot of comments, because I more enjoy listening! However, I want to let you all know how much I appreciate having an opportunity to enjoy what you have to share of your talent.

I'll be back with more later this week!

24. Snejana - Celestial Cloud
A very appealing piece and excellent performance. To me, this piece is harmonically more interesting than most music that is called new age. I see what you mean about the appeal of the minimalism and repetition. Well done.

25. Griffin2417 - Prelude in C Sharp Minor
Wow, passionate playing if I ever heard it! I love the intensity and the drama of this piece. You approach it as i would, if i could play it - as something above and beyond, somethign cosmic, something ultimate. Great right-hand work on that middle section, it comes across very strong! Well done.

27. Greta99 - Rosemary's Waltz
What an interesting piece! It sure covers a lot of territory, harmonically, and seems to move with easy agility between keys or between minor and major. You make it sound easy but I'd bet it is more difficult than it sounds. Well done!

28. Jason Lenthe - Sonata in C Major (K545), 1st movement
Masterful! I liked the spirit of the whole performance, just right for the piece. BTW, the trills were impressive to me.
