Any music that appears in a movie or film fits the theme. Any level, any genre. You can submit multiple performances.

Call for Submissions

Or you can go straight to the online recital form and submit your performance: recitals.pianoworld.com

If you are new to the recitals, don't be shy, come and join us. The submission period lasts 2 weeks. I will close the recital on the 15th and take it "live". Then you can listen and comment on the performances.

The only requirement is an mp3 recording of your playing. Of course, you actually have to learn and practice something to get a recording. But that's the easy part, right?

Videos are optional, but very popular. Upload your video somewhere else (like youtube) and share the link when you submit.

Looking forward to it!

Sam

I have seen it in the list, so maybe it's not uploaded yet. I thought I could try La valse d'amélie, but I couldn't make sure if that member was already going to play that or not.

The pledge to play something doesn’t really mean it will be played, so don’t let that stop you from contributing. And duplicates are allowed…

I was going to bemoan the absence of Morricone, but now I see that Rubens has just submitted something by good old Ennio. Sweet!

Flygbladet, I think you've misspelled your submission's title and composer. It should probably be One Summer's day (apostrophe s) by Joe Hisaishi. I seriously considered playing a Hisaishi piece before picking Danny Elfman, so I'm glad you've submitted this. smile

Yes, I couldn't pass up the opportunity, even though my piano's tuning has gone quite bad, and the piece is barely under my fingers. I hope it will still be listenable!

Now, we need some Michel Legrand, Hans Zimmer, and John Barry!

I'm sure it'll be fine! I don't remember that theme from Cinema Paradiso anyway, even though I've seen the film quite recently. wink
