I'm going to try my Beethoven Sonata again as I've had a few more weeks of polish on it smile Also I may just be ready to add the second movement.

That gives me just about a month to try and get my Franck ready, hope I'll manage that.

I have a Glass Metamorphosis and a new piece by Yan Tierson in the bag. Just have to decide which to show.

My piece this month will illuminate (if not celebrate) the deepest, darkest aspects of sexual dominance and unbridled compulsion...and will not be a figment or phantom of the imagination...

My piece this month will explore the staccato arpeggio, the inverted mordent, and the long trill, all in a minor key.

So I think Handyman has me beat!

One for the Thought Police? We won't tell!

I got one from last year, which I thought I'd recorded but didn't. So I'll learn it again. Pretty bad when you can't even play your own stuff . . . .

Not so sure about this Sam - dominance has it's devotees, but there is something inherently and compellingly sexy about staccato arpeggios, inverted mordents and long trills - and especially in a minor key...

Don't forget the recital!

I have a jury coming up at school, so you would think that I would have something ready to go. But everything seems to be in a ragged, unfinished condition.

Can you submit more than one piece?

I've currently got three different pieces coming together now.

I doubt I'll get recordings for all three in a form for a recital but there is a decent chance I'll get recordings from two of them appropriate for a recital.

I'm probably missing something super obvious, is there a recital FAQ and necessary info I can read somewhere?

Re: One Month to ABF Recital 54 - May 2019! - 04/21/19 11:23 AM

No, only one piece for the quarterly recital. You can submit more on the themed recitals though. There is more info in the link on the first post of this thread.

I'm working on a march composed by a great-uncle in 1919. I *think* it will be presentable, but a slow, um, stately march smile

But will it be nuanced? Authentic? Gritty?

Anyway, I'm glad to hear you are into jazz now.

Highly perceptive questions...Nuanced? No. Authentic? Of course. Gritty? Predominantly!

After all, what is dominance and compulsion without grit? Anti-climatic, firing a blank...

Only a few days until the recital opens for submissions. Still time to practice!

We had someone play that in one of the recitals once that added in sound effects - gentle rain, far-off thunder. It was ... interesting.

I'm probably going to have to submit a piece I had recorded previously...my new Einaudi pieces are coming together but nowhere near recording-ready.

I have a Mendelssohn ready. I was hoping to have a Schumann ready but I'm struggling with making it sound like I want.

I'm sure Sam S will create a new thread when the recital is open for submissions.

The recital is open for submissions. Go to recitals.pianoworld.com to submit. I am a morning person, so all deadlines will be adjusted to be early AM US eastern time. This should actually give you more time to submit before the deadline, which will be 5:00 AM US Eastern time on May 15th.

Seem to have got two submissions, but only one magic code. I edited my name using the magic code, putting brackets and adding missing letter, so I presume that is the correct version
