What is a themed recital?
An online recital with a theme. Here is a partial list of recitals we have had in the past, and some future recitals
Grieg (64) Sept 2013
Joplin‎ (24) March 2014
Tchaikovsky (39) April 2014
Schumann (83) March 2015
Great American Songbook (58) Sept 2015
Baroque (49) April 2016
Russian (44) Oct 2016
French (42) April 2017
Spanish Latin American (29) Sept 2017
The Waltz (43) March 2018
Debussy (22) June 2018
Slavic (18) Oct 2018
Nordic (23) Oct 2019
Prelude - January 2020
Beethoven 250th Birthday - April 2020
Scarlatti - July 2020
Rare Gems - October 2020

What recitals are scheduled?
Look in this sub-forum for posts with “signup thread” in the title. We ask that performers pledge to play something. That lets everyone know that there is interest and what may be played in the recital. A pledge is a promise to play, but it’s fine if something prevents you from performing.

How do the recitals work?
About two weeks before the recital goes “live”, it will open for submissions. This is usually the first of a month. The recital closes on the deadline, and the admin will start a new thread in this sub-forum with links to the recordings, and another thread where you may comment on the performances. The only thing that is required is an mp3 recording of your performance. We use the same software as the ABF Quarterly Recitals - you can read about the recitals at recitals.pianoworld.com

Why is an mp3 recording required?
You will upload the mp3 to the recital server so we do not get deadlinks to old recordings. Videos are optional - you can provide one if you wish.

Who can participate?
Anyone, any skill level. The Quarterly recitals are open to any piece in any genre, but the themed recitals have - a theme!

Can I suggest a theme?
Sure, just start a thread in this sub-forum. It will have to fit in the schedule, so it may be sometime before it happens. Remember that any piece, in any genre, is welcome in the Quarterly Recitals.

Some doubt here: The January theme is already chosen: Prelude.
This means that people will concentrate on sending prelude recordings ?
Any preludes are accepted ? I mean, from any composer ?


I don´t want to learn how to play a music. I´m developing a way to play them all.

Sorry, too late. The preludes recital went “live” yesterday. Look for the recital thread in this forum.

Generally, the deadlines are on the 15th of the month.

Thank you Sam, now I read the other posts. I'll try to be on the next themed recital. Excuse me if I posted in the wrong place.

Sure. We never restrict based on difficulty level (except for the "Beginner Pieces" recital that we had, which was specifically asking for pieces that a beginner would learn). The quarterly recitals are open to any genre, any period, any style, any level. The themed recitals just ask that you stick to the theme. And in every case, it is up to the performer to decide if their performance fits the theme, if any, of the recital.
