The ABF Nordic themed recital will open for submissions 1.10.2019!

Pieces by any composer of Nordic origin are welcome. Nordic here refers to the five Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

Duets with piano or other intrument are allowed as well. In fact the only requirement is that there is some keyboard instrument present. Transcriptions are fine as well.

About the recital:
1) All skill levels are welcome, especially beginners. There are plenty of grade 1-3 pieces as well to learn in this "genre". Do not feel intimidated by the selections of our more experienced members. This place is for beginners, some virtuosos just hang around because this is such a great place smileIf you don't know what to play, just ask and you will get suggestions.
2) Duplicate pieces by different members are allowed
3) You can submit as many pieces as you wish.
4) We will be using the recital submission software.
5) The recital will open for submissions 1.10.2019 and the recital will go live 13.10.2019.

Instructions how to sign up are in the next post. If there are problems, just post the information about the piece and I'll update the list. Signing up beforehand is optional, since multiple submissions of the same piece are allowed.

There is a Grieg piece I want to learn, but it is kind of hard, I am not sure I will be able to play it. Can I sing up for the recital anyway, or should I wait until I start learning the piece? I mean, would it be ok to sign up a piece and not "deliver" it? haha
The sign-up list is just a statement of intentions, or a pledge. Sort of like, "I would like to play this piece for the recital. If I can. Maybe."

We won't hunt you down and break your fingers if you don't deliver...

Hi all,

Looking for suggestions for a composer or pieces to learn for the recital. I am currently working my way through Bach 12 short preludes and Clementi Sonatinas ti give you an idea of where my skill level is at.

Thanks in advance for the help.
Hi, oneilt130! I would say the best thing for you to do is review some of the Edvard Grieg early Lyric Pieces -- some of them are I believe at your skill level, and are effective.

(Updating this, don't keep this comment if you reply, my teacher requested I do Watchman's Song instead, sorry Keselo, we'll overlap.)
I look forward to hearing everyone's work in this recital, but I think I need to give up my place in line (#3). If someone else would like to play Grieg "Arietta," the first of the Lyric pieces, please do! I hate to re-number everything, so perhaps I should just leave space #3 blank?
Hi, Qwerty53! I will solve your problem by moving my second-to-last entry into your spot -- I need to update that anyway.

Thank you, Tim! I think the overall average quality of performance just went up with that change from me to you!
Does Kuhlau count? He's a naturalized Danish citizen.

Or I might go with Erkki Melartin.
We are not picky, so just go with your instinct.

Kuhlau wrote the music for "Elverhøj", which is virtually the Danish national play, having been performed more than 1000 times in the Danish Royal Theater, and having been filmed for a movie way back in 1910 (although that was obviously without the music and the songs).

From a Danish perspective, Kuhlau was very Danish.

From a Danish perspective, Kuhlau was very Danish.


And from just about every other perspective too. The first paragraph of the Wikipedia entry for Kuhlau uses the word "Danish" five times.
Just a reminder that the recital will open for submissions sometime 1st October. Anyone can submit whether signed up or not.

I may not be able to record anything myself, there's just too much to do and I need to prioritize so that I won't completely burn out frown But I hope there will be plenty of submissions and I promise to listen to and comment every one!
Actually, the recital software, recitals.pianoworld.com, has been down since the PW outage of a few days ago. I've been trying to get Mr. Piano World's attention to get it fixed - seems to be a database connection problem, which I have no control over. Surely it will be back by Oct 1...

Lets hope so! Otherwise we will have to find an alternative way...surely we are not going to let some technical issues stop us!

Nothing will stop us - I used to run everything on my own web space. I can go back if I have to.

Not many Swedish classical composers so far; and not many female composers either. Guess I'll do both, with one piece. wink
Name of the composer: Laura Valborg Aulin.
Name of the piece: Valse, Op.8 Nr.2.

I changed mine to be the 2nd movement only of the sonata.
Just to let you know, I have to postpone the recital opening to tomorrow so it will be open sometime October 2nd.
I apologize for being the first to submit my pieces, but it is half past six in the evening now in Germany and I wanted to get things done before supper.
Sadly, have to withdraw all my pieces, including my planned duet with Animisha, due to the need to concentrate on my December piano exam, and also due to a technological glitch. Revised:

No problem being first - that's a good thing. I let my Grieg get rusty - I need to polish it back up...

Sam
Outo,
I uploaded three pieces as planned. However, one of them appears as a duplicate on the list. Moreover the registration form behaved in a somewhat unusual way For instance I didn't receive the "magic code" by mail as I usually to. If my files were not uploaded, please inform me, and I'll send them by mail.
I'am sorry, I have to withdraw Grieg's Ballade. I had to concentrate on some other pieces during the last month.

I'm in with Grieg's Notturno. 19 pieces so far...

Sam
No, it's only 18 pieces. Ganddalf's double entry on #s 5 and 6 has not been fixed yet.
Yes, there seems to be a duplicate entry, it will be corrected...
Sorry guys, but I'm gonna have to miss this one. I had finished learning my piece a couple of months ago. I just haven't had much time to practice in the last 2 weeks or so, and there's no way I can get a half decent recording in a couple of days.
I had uploaded a recording yesterday that I wasn't very happy with, but wanted to have something just in case. Recorded again this morning with a take that while far from perfect is better than my previous submission. Hopefully my new mp3 uploaded correctly.

Looking forward to hearing everyone's submissions!
I wasn't sure if I would be participating in this Nordic recital but I made it in time! Looking forward to hearing all the other pieces soon smile
Due to the time zone differences I am not quite sure when exactly the recital will be online, I will try to get up around 7 am on wednesday my time to do it...

Won't be able to make any recordings myself, but I see many submissions, so it's ok smile
Oh dang it, I thought the due date was 15th. Sorry I missed it )-;

You still have another day I think. 7am Wed in Finland is 9PM Tuesday night in WA, USA.

Sam
Yes, there's one more day left to submit!
I decided to join the recital because I happened to have suitable piece memorized

I am so sorry . :(( my mother was very ill and I left my home province in a rush to be with her. I didn’t bring my recording software. I haven’t had much practice time the last month. But worked a lot on my piece and hope to submit it to a future recital. I really hate it when I fail to meet my recital commitments.

(ps. Thankfully my mother is now home from hospital and on the mend!!)

So glad your mother is doing better! That's what counts. I'd love to hear your piece in a future recital, perhaps the next quarterly?
