Alexander, if you click on "quote" underneath lilypad's message, you see exactly how she did it. cool


Playing the piano is learning to create, playfully and deeply seriously, our own music in the world.

Alexander - There may be an easier way, but here's what I do:

1) Go to where my piece is recorded and right click and copy the internet address.

2) Then back on the forum page I click on the "Use Full Editor" button if I'm not already on that screen. Have your cursor where you want your hyperlink to be. At the top of the "Use Full Editor" screen there are several options depending on what you want to do.

3) Choose "insert link" button (picture of the world with a paperclip under it). A prompt will come up where you will right click and copy your link. A second prompt will come up where you can write in a description.

You can preview your replay and test the links.

I've been playing the piano since Jan '18.
More recently, I passed Grade 6 with distinction and plan to take Grade 7 in late 2021.

I am documenting my progress, recitals and experiences of learning how to play the piano as an adult on my YouTube channel.

Catching up on the recent activity here -

Peter Hontaru - I enjoyed your Chopin. What a great way to get started on your 40 pieces for the year.

AlexanderRuiseco - I liked your recordings of Royal Fanfare and Fairy Tale. Fairy Tale was my favorite.

Bart K - I see you completed another movement of the Beethoven sonata. Congratulations.

I apologize for not being so active in the challenge and in the chat so far this year. I have a lot of things going on at the moment, and the time I am able to spend in the forum has really shrunk.
I have now managed to listen now to some of the latest submissions. Good job everyone in general.

- lilypad: Your list is growing at a very good pace. You are already half way through the challenge smile Thank you for giving some inertia to the chat too and taking time to comment diligently on people's submissions.

- mel_lem I have enjoyed several of your recordings mel_lem. Your technique seems very solid. How is the new piano? I hope you are enjoying this new instrument. Please share some recordings at your new piano smile

- Bart K Such a very impressive list of pieces! Thank you also for sharing your views on the Op. 49 sonata from Beethoven on a separate thread. Those are very valuable insights.

- Peter So nice to see you back Peter. I hope you are doing well and that you are being able to dedicate some time to the piano. Loved your Chopin.

- Jeremy Very impressive job with the Bach C major Prelude. Very musical smile

I am also finally able to share some recording myself and start my list for this year. I started working on this sonata last October and managed to record it entirely at the beginning of April. It was hard work and totally worth it. It is mind-blowing how much one can learn from this piece. I do not think this year I will be so prolific in this challenge as I was last year, since we are working with my teacher in sort of more complex/larger pieces but I hope to be able to post more very soon smile
This was also my submission to the last quarterly recital. All links lead to the same video (it has time stamps though if you are just interested on only a particular movement :))


1. W. A. Mozart - Piano Sonata No. 16 in C Major: I. Allegro
2. W. A. Mozart - Piano Sonata No. 16 in C Major: II. Andante
3. W. A. Mozart - Piano Sonata No. 16 in C Major: III. Rondo Allegretto

Bart K.
It’s a very impressive list! I also plan to learn all the inventions, and it will also be more of a long term project for me.

AndresVel
Congratulations on your first sonata! You did an amazing job with it. I would encourage you to give Haydn a try. His short sonatas are probably not the most exciting listening material, but they are so much fun to play!

lilypad
I listened to your recordings and I liked them a lot, especially “Ashokan Farewell”. Faber pieces are also very interesting. My son used Piano Adventures books and I found the selection of pieces very good.

AlexanderRuiseco
Welcome to the challenge! You've certainly accomplished a lot in such a short time. Your recordings are very clean, you seem to have a good sense of rhythm. However, it looks like you are sitting too high. Your forearms should be roughly parallel to the floor.

It seems a little over-ambitious joining in June, but I think the challenge is an excellent idea so here goes.

1. Bach Invention #1

(Apologies it's so imperfect, & for the quality of the recording. I'm getting a new piano today and this unweighted keyboard is being gifted, and I realized at the last minute that I'd like to have a recording on it. Alas, I did not have time to figure out doing a good one. I'll replace it with a better version in my piano once I get settled in with it).

So impressed with everyone’s lists.

Peter Hontaru - beautifully played Chopin piece. (This was the first Chopin piece I looked at!)

SchubertRock - Invention no. 1 is a fitting tribute to that old keyboard.. hope the new piano is treating you well.

Bart K, greta99 & lilypad - incredible sets of pieces, have enjoyed listening, and feel like I need to step on it… not sure I’ll make 40 by the end of the year!

Just one new piece to add to my list:

1. Beethoven - Bagatelle in Gm (Op.119 No.1) (YouTube Link)
2. Chopin - Prelude in Em (Op.28 No.4) (YouTube Link)
3. Sibelius - Joueur de Harpe (Op.34 No.8) (YouTube Link)
4. Mompou - La Barca (YouTube Link)
5. Gillock - New Orleans Nightfall (YouTube Link)
6. Bach - Invention No. 4 in Dm (YouTube Link)
7. Scriabin - Prelude in Db (Op.11 No.15) (YouTube Link)
8. Field - Nocturne No. 5 in Bb (YouTube Link)
9. Bach - Prelude in C (BWV 846) (YouTube Link)
10. Bach - Invention No. 8 in F (YouTube Link)

Amazingly done, Jeremy. #8 is actually one of the next pieces I'll work on too.

1. Bach Invention #1, C major Youtube link (in unweighted keyboard)
2. Tchaikovsky, "The Sick Doll" (from Op. 39, Album for the Young) Soundcloud (Trying out my new piano)

And adding one more. Coming from an unweighed keyboard, in the piano my fingers feel like they have sandbags tied to them, ha. And, touch and dynamic control are to be re-learned. So I'm trying a lot of different pieces and styles, and learning + relearning some things from the olden days.

1. Bach Invention #1, C major(Youtube link, in unweighted keyboard)
2. Tchaikovsky, "The Sick Doll" from Op. 39, Album for the Young (Soundcloud, in the piano--for this one and all below.)
3. Clementi Op. 36, No. 6, 1st movement, part 1 before repeat (Youtube link)

Also: in future, I'll group recordings so that I don't spam like this.

I am enjoying the new piano and I have finally recorded some pieces on it!

[Youtube Playlist]

1) Czerny - Op. 299 No. 1
2) Burgmuller - "The Knight Errant", Op. 100 No. 25
3) Czerny - Op. 299 No. 2
4) CPE Bach - Solfeggietto in C minor
5) Czerny - Op. 299 No. 3
6) Martha Mier - Opening Night Jazz
7) Paul Harvey - Rumba Toccata
8) Czerny - Op. 299 No. 4 [Youtube]
9) Beethoven - Ecossaise in E flat, WoO 83 No. 4 [Youtube]
10) Beethoven - Minuet in G major, WoO 10 No. 2 [Youtube]

I wanted to start learning Beethoven sonatas, but then I realised that I haven't been playing many of his other works. So I have have found a few easier to intermediate pieces to learn for the rest of June.

AndresVel - Thank you! I am still getting acquainted with the new piano. The touch is completely different than a digital piano. I am also learning Mozart's Sonata K.545, currently in the third movement. Will get them recorded once I am ready. Good job on yours!

Bart K & Greta99 - What an impressive lists the 2 of you have!

SchubertRock - Your new piano sounds great!! Welcome to the group!

Jeremy Taylor - Great job on Invention No. 8! This is the first invention I learned few years back, I am relearning it now to have more define voices and clearer articulations.
