On weight/touch... My teacher has an upright with a fairly 'heavy action'. He exploits the completely hokey 'una corda' mechanism on uprights by practicing just before a recital with the uc pedal rammed down - he says it seems to help with the transition to a concert grand; makes sense. However just to be clear, in lessons he advocates use of uc as an effect, not a cheat... \:\)


Looking forward to the etude experience...

I think we were all unanimous that is was going to be the ballades and scherzos. \:D

Seriously, there's been some suggestions that it be the nocturnes next October. There are already some mazurkas coming up in March. As for who decides??? We do, however we manage to do that. Maybe we should do a poll?

That would be nice. Lots of great Nocturnes.

Is there a post for the Mazurka recital? I just fell in love with one of them that I'd like to put under a deadline if it's not already taken.

Thanks -Frycek. Darn, 63/3 is already taken. I'll look into the ones that are free. They all have their wonderful character.

Well, I've got a Waltz sort of under control. If y'all don't do the waltzes, I'll just have to put it into the next quarterly recital instead.

I retract my Nocturne vote and I shift it to Waltzes. \:\) They are all quite exciting as well.

I "vote" for nocturnes as well. Maybe we should do a poll? Or rather, maybe MaryRose should do a poll - - -

I vote Nocturnes too...
And though this may be way premature (not to mention the wrong thread),.... can I place my bid for 27/2?

Oh, thank you, Chardonnay, for starting the bidding!

I'd like dibs on either 55/2 or 62/2.

55-1 for me, if we're decided on Nocturnes.

Early dibs are so contagious! Steven, if you end up with 55/2 then I'll take 62/2. It's one of my favorites yet to polish. \:\)

Well PianoDad, 952, looks like we're outnumbered this time :-)

So many wonderful Nocturnes. I already know 37/2 and could easily polish it - unless someone else wants it or wants to learn.

Yep, that's for sure. I have never learned a nocturne. Maybe I'll check one out.

I have received three more Etudes now, so we are waiting for the following people as at 3pm Thursday my time (GMT):

Phlebas - if you could check on these people backchannel it would be a great help. Just a little nudge of an email. Thanks! [/b]
Mary-Rose, I got an email about this.

I've been away from PW for a while and I'm afraid the etude fell by the way side. I'm very sorry about this and hope you will accept my apologies.

I will pick up the etude again, but I won't have it ready anytime soon--more like the end of the year, so perhaps someone else already knows it and would like to take it over?

Again, my apologies.

Sounds like we are definite on nocturnes. I already have had 37/1 in good shape for a long time. Does anyone want that? I could throw it in if not.

I hope we do waltzes at some point. I'd also like to see a performance of miscellaneous pieces.

Miscellaneous pieces is an inspired idea to explore at some point. There's lots of variety of all kinds! I've already learned the Fantaisie in f minor, but it might inspire me to take on the outrageous challenge that the Allegro de Concert would present. (It might turn out to be an Adagio de Concert in my hands. \:o )

Hey everybody, it's now October 17 in Eastern Daylight Time!

Dang, I hope Mary-Rose is getting some sleep.

Mary-Rose, I think I feel safe in extending a huge round of thanks to you on behalf of all of us.

Steven, if you've learned the Fantaisie in F minor, it seems like the sky's the limit!
