ABF Recital Index

Let me express my greatest thanks to some very special people: Mr Super-Hunky for coming up with the idea of our online recitals, which have proven to be more successful than any of us ever dreamed; LaValse for hosting the recitals for so long and then devoting hours of programming trouble-shooting making the transition to Frank's servers; Frank for agreeing to host the recital now that it's gotten so big; Monica K for being the recital admin through Recital 54; Sam S. for his terrific AB Forum Recital Index and also devoting hours to programming trouble-shooting; and last but not least, mahlzeit for writing the absolutely fantastic web-based recital program that we are using.

AGAIN: DO NOT REPLY OR POST ON THIS THREAD!

Sam

Performer's name:wouter79
Experience:>7 years
Direct music link:click to download
Title of piece:Etudes Tableaux Op.33 no.5- Moderato
Composer:Rachmaninoff, Sergei Vasilievich
Duration:04:34
Source of music:sheet music, mostly memorized
Instrument used:Grotrian-Steinweg 189
Recording method:DPA4060, EMU0404, Jecklin Disk, Macbook Pro
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:Here is a nother one of Rachmaninoff etudes-tableaux! He wrote these study pictures in august 1911. He was 38 and lived still in Russia. The pieces were inspired by paintings, but Rachmaninov intendedly left it unclear which paintings. And anyway, Rachmaninoff most likely composed about the feelings he got from the painting, as he usually avoided program music.

Originally he wrote 9 etudes for op.33 but he decided to omit 3 of them just before they were published. Number 5 therefore was originally number 8.

The piece has 4 parts. It starts with a calm but dark, wide arpeggiated g minor backdrom coming on softly. The slow descending theme appears, it jumps to different octaves, as if searching a distant memory. Then the theme culminates into an long, loud accelerating descend and the backdrop becomes agressive, much louder and highly chromatic. Suddenly the mood turns more mysterious briefly. Then the original calm theme returns. Finally it turns again into a long descending, increasingly loud but this time closer to the theme, less complex and dissonant and shorter, ending with a loud final upward run. Then silence, a distant bell sounds two times.

Technically the main challenge is to play fast and pianissimo arpeggios with the left hand. The melody in the right hand (RH) is very thin, slow and long-phrased. But the RH often has to help the LH which is qutie different. The LH is only accompaniment but is very busy running around the keyboard with the wide arpeggios. It often interferes and even crosses with the right hand. It has lots of low, dominant notes. Yet has to be played pianissimo as a soft rumble behind the RH. To get an idea, just try to play the last chord pianissimo as written. I had some technical issues recording, first I have a new mac causing clicking noises sometimes, and second my ADC battery is broken so I had to use the net adapter, resulting in a slight hum. Sorry for this! But on the positive side, I could get my piano tuned!

I am looking forward to feedback as I worked on this on and off with my previous 2 teachers over a span of more than 2 years, but never completed it with either of them, and my current teacher is not going to work on it any time soon.

Title of piece:Roses of May
Composer:Uematsu, Nobuo
Duration:04:06
Source of music:Sheet music
Instrument used:Yamaha P-125
Recording method:Recorded as MIDI on the DP, and rendered to audio in Garritan CFX Lite.
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:Piano solo arrangement (by Hiroyuki Nakayama) of an iconic theme from the Final Fantasy video game franchise, from the album Piano Opera Final Fantasy VII/VIII/IX. Considering the title, I couldn't think of a more fitting piece for this month's recital!

I first heard - and fell in love with - the original version of this theme as a teenager. When I discovered this more recent piano arrangement, it was like meeting my teenage crush again, and finding out that she had grown into a stunning woman. Needless to say, it was love at first sight (hearing?), for the second time.

Title of piece:Frozen 2 - Show Yourself
Composer:Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez
Duration:04:19
Source of music:Sheet music (arranged by SangeoMusic)
Instrument used:Kawai Novus NV-10
Recording method:Digital to USB, Pianist Mode (SK-EX Rendering, Classic setting, "Medium Room" ambiance, "Light" touch curve)
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This is a piece from Frozen 2,sung by Idina Menzel and Evan Rachel Wood. It was quite challenging for me to learn due to numerous key and tempo changes throughout.

This is my first ABF recital submission, and my first time playing "publicly." I got back into piano a couple of years ago after having kids, in hopes of inspiring them to play music as they get older. Most of what I play are Disney/cartoon covers (it's what they want to hear).

I wanted to participate in an ABF recital as a way to force myself to listen to what/how I was practicing, and to focus on polish beyond the ~80-90% I usually stop at. I'd very much welcome comments and constructive criticism to help me improve. Thanks!

Title of piece:The Family
Composer:Max Richter
Duration:02:24
Source of music:'Max Richter: Piano Works' 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:I hadn't listened to any of Max Richter's works until Monica submitted his 'Written on the Sky' for Recital 37. It intrigued me and I was tempted to try it myself. But her comments on its challenges (culminating with a heartfelt "the good news is that I don't ever have to play it again") put a sudden brake on that plan.

I revisited his Piano Works album a few weeks ago and came across 'The Family'. It looked far more straight-forward: even simple enough, I thought, for a sight-reading exercise. I found something meditative, even hypnotic about it that continues to grow on me with every playing.

Composed for the award-winning film 'Lore', 'The Family' hasn't previously appeared in an ABF Recital. It's not Einaudi - but you introduced me to Max Richter, Monica, so this one is for you.

Title of piece:Hasche-Mann and Bittendes Kind from Kinderszenen Op 15.3 15.4
Composer:Schumann
Duration:01:47
Source of music:Sheet music. Henle
Instrument used:MP11SE, Using the Synthogy Ivory II American Concert D virtual piano.
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:Hasche-Mann is really a step above my playing skill level. The fact I've pulled off a recording is just purely hard work and far too much practise time for a 40 second piece. By the time I finished each practise session with it I was exhausted. I will not be trying to maintain it in my repertoire.

Pleading child (Bittendes Kinder) is a lovely sweet piece I learnt quickly and enjoy very much.

Duration:03:36
Source of music:My Head in another planet, again. :scary face:
Instrument used:Yamaha P515 Warm Grand, Bosendorfer based.(I fondly think)
Recording method:SMS from Pianoteq fed into the piano and converted to wav for YT. MP3 for here.
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:I like the sound of this particular piano; it is versatile and permits good dynamics and melody definition. The recording doesn't seem to quite reflect what I heard when playing, so turn it up, guys! That might help.
I suppose I could call it "Lockdown Blues" but I'd finished and recorded this before lockdown even started. . . Hope you're all well. My nephew managed to acquire the Virus, but got over it quickly. He's not local to me . . . . !
It's the bike for me everyday now. The roads are nice and quiet apart from the other cyclists.
Wife was commenting on how peaceful everything was.

Title of piece:Lyric Pieces Op 12 No 5 Folk Melody
Composer:Grieg
Duration:01:36
Source of music:Sheet music
Instrument used:Kawai CS8
Recording method:Digital to Audacity
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This is a short but lovely little piece. There is a lot of repetition due to its ABABA form, so there is really very little music to learn. But within it there are many challenges for me, and there is more work to do on the pedalling and ornaments.

It is mid morning, the sun is shining, and I have had tea and crumpets for breakfast :-)

Instrument used:Young Chang grand
Recording method:metro
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:I have the sheet music for Rue de Cascades but I don't believe I have heard one rendition that was true to what I have. So I have thrown caution to the wind and just played my own version. My plan had been to speed it up at the finish and abruptly end. I'm not sure it worked as well as I had hoped. But hey, I did throw caution to the wind.

Performer's name:Sma55 (Shepherd Abrams)

Experience:Self-taught as a child, but after a hiatus from piano lasting decades, I finally began lessons when I retired from my career on the early side about 6 years ago now.

Title of piece:Thanksgiving
Composer:George Winston
Duration:04:00
Source of music:Played by ear, sheet music, some improvisation
Instrument used:Steingraeber & Sohne D232
Recording method:Zoom H4n to Audacity for conversion to mp3
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:A little while after the COVID-19 lockdown in my city began, something about the crisis that has befallen all of us made me nostalgic for better times. For some reason, I settled upon the 1980's--music that I had not played in nearly 40 years but that I played back then be ear, prior to beginning lessons about 6 years ago. But I decided to supplement my own previous rendition of the piece with sheet music (now that I can read it!). NOTE: At 2:37 into the piece, some kind of digital glitch/skip occurred in the mp3 file of this recording. I've never had that happen before, but I suspect that it's some kind of Audacity artifact, as it's not in my original .wav file of the recording. Thanks so much for listening! Also note that if you liked this recording, you can also find my rendition of George Winston's "Variations on the Kanon by Pachelbel" by copying and pasting the following link: https://youtu.be/9ZMHluo0VqM

Title of piece:k330, 2nd movement - Andante catabile
Composer:Mozart
Duration:07:35
Source of music:sheet music
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This piece is very special to me because it's one of my favorites. I've put a lot of work into it, and it turned out to be much more complex than I initially thought.
I had to really change the way I play in order to make it somewhat decent sounding.
It was also a great challenge to stay focused for 7 minutes, as previous pieces I played were much shorter.
While I'm not completely satisfied with the recording, I know that that's the best I can currently do.

I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening!

Additional info:This is a relatively easy piece to play from the RCM 5 book. I think there is a lot of flexibility in how you play it (slow/fast, loud/soft). Whatever strikes you at the time is correct smile

We had take out for lunch.

The composer is new to me too. I didn't see him in the recital index, so I thought I would update the composer count. Getting close to 1000.

Additional info:I recorded this during the quarantine. This is the theme song from a 80s Japanese animated film Castle in the Sky composed by Joe Hisaishi. I remember as a kid I really like the movie and the song. The original version is not piano so I did not think about playing it at the time, until many years later I found some piano arrangements and this becomes a piece that I play frequently. Hope you like it.

Title of piece:Farewell to Stromness
Composer:Peter Maxwell Davies
Duration:04:04
Source of music:Boosey & Hawkes sheet music
Instrument used:Schimmel Grand
Recording method:H2N Zoom
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:Peter Maxwell Davies was a British composer and conductor who lived from 1934 to 2016. He moved to the Orkney Islands in the 1960s and composed The Yellow Cake Review, a series of satirical and political musical statements protesting a proposed uranium mine in the Orkneys, which was eventually dismissed. The Farewell to Stromness was one the piano entries of this Review.

In this piece I heard protest, pride and resilience and tried to communicate those characteristics.

Title of piece:Contrapunctus 1 (The Art of Fugue)
Composer:J.S. Bach
Duration:03:27
Source of music:The Art of the Fugue
BWV 1080 (J.S. Bach)
Edited for Solo Keyboard by CARL CZERNY
Instrument used:Yamaha P95
Recording method:Canon PowerShot SX730HS
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This is the last set of fugues & canons written by J.S. Bach before he died in 1750. The last piece (fugue #15) was not finish.

Bach did not indicate the instrumentation for the pieces. Over the years there were recordings featuring solo piano, organ, string & brass ensembles.

I learned the piece 8 years ago (back in 2012) and made a recording. The playing and the recording equipment was not satisfactory.

In Feb. I had a 3-week break from my weekly piano lessons before reconnecting with the teacher through Zoom. I decided to work on this piece again measure by measure and made 2 recordings at home with the piano and the organ sound. I decided to upload the organ version with a slightly faster tempo.

The tempo as indicated in the Czerny edit is "Andante con moto" with a Cut Time. I've heard slower & faster versions of the piece.

Direct music link:click to download
Title of piece:Improvisation - concluding few minutes of sixty
Composer:Ted Jones
Duration:05:46
Source of music:Free improvisation
Instrument used:Weinbach 5' 10"
Recording method:Zoom H2
Technical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:As we ate all last night's sausages I shall have a toasted cheese and onion sandwich for lunch. Recent forum discussions about improvisation have reinforced profound differences in the way I think about music. It's a bit peculiar really as I thought like everybody else until my late fifties, when everything changed. So in the creative sense, not of course in the physical playing sense, I am an adult beginner, and wish to remain so until I suck the kumara. I couldn't bear being a stable expert in anything, it's so much more fun when each day makes me reach out for the new.
