I put together some Python code to screen scrape the recital pages. Below is a link to a spreadsheet with all of the performances, links to mp3, youtube if available, etc. Let me know if this is useful and/or if you want other stuff added in.

Thank you BCC! Thanks to techies like you for being here!


A man must love a thing very much if he practices it without any hope of fame or money, but even practice it without any hope of doing it well. Such a man must love the toils of the work more than any other man can love the rewards of it.

Thanks, bSharp! It's a great contribution!

I found the old indexes very useful for screening VSTs before purchasing. It was always nice to hear how VSts sounded in the hands of amateurs, as, the recordings used by the VST marketing departments always presented the risk that the music was doctored and colored to make it sound better than what the consumer could get out of the program. So, a column for VST would be nice.

Thanks again for your efforts!

Thanks everyone, you're welcome!

I can add that in Ralphiano, pull the Instrument and the Recording Method info.

Thanks! I see the spreadsheet doesn't have the latest recital. Are you going to be updating it?

Here's a list of some of the composers I got from poking around. The numbers are how many pieces were attributed to that composer.

Bach (JS) 349
Chopin 314
Beethoven 192
Schumann (Robert) 180
Einaudi 141
Debussy 103
Grieg 94
Mozart (WA) 82
Tchaikovsky 79
Scarlatti (Domenico) 74
Joplin 68
Mendelssohn (Felix) 60
Schubert 48
Clementi 38
Liszt 36
Satie 36
Rachmaninoff 35
Brahms 34
Haydn 27
Handel 24
Piazzolla 16
Ravel 14
Bartok 13

It's nowhere near complete as I got these from filtering for specific composers. I'm sure I missed some that should be on this list.

Thanks! I updated the spreadsheet with columns for Instrument and Recording Method.

@Qazsedcft - The latest recital, #62, should be in there.

BCC, do you want a snapshot of the database? You wouldn't have to grab things from a screen...

That would certainly be easier, I wouldn't have to hammer the server with so many page requests 😁 I did this as technical exercise, something for fun. Like an etude.

I just noticed there is two mp3 missing files in recital #5, Rondo in C WoO 48 from craig137Craig and Overcome from Ishmael, if you can upload the file to the server or if Sam can do it, it's available in one of my old backup. I used to download the recital in zip format. Just let me know and I will send the files by email.

bSharp(C)yclist, and whoever else is interested, if you want a csv snapshot of the recital database, go to
ABF Recital Index and click on <Download Recital Snapshot>

After each new recital I will create a new one. Hopefully I can remember. Let me know if there are any problems.

Have fun data diving...

Sam
