I've already sent mine, and I don't know if it would add more confusion to change the file name now, or if that would help. I'll do whatever MR prefers.

Gerg, did you mean Schubertian, or is there also a Schubertarian? (If not, there could be.)

Duly noted and changed.

MaryRose is extremely busy and may not get back to you right away. I'm assuming some of the load per her request.

Goodness.. Please don't worry about re-sending just for the sake of a name change. Even if only half of us use the file names suggested, it still makes things simpler.

Thanks,

Hi all,

You can now submit your recordings anonymously directly to the website.

recordings AT chopinrecital DOT org.

(replace AT with @ and DOT with .)

Let's cut MaryRose's workload a little and use this new system!

There is, at present, a two-megabyte limitation on submissions. This will be fixed over the next several weeks by the hosting company. It therefore is best to submit a link to a box.net or other hosted recording.

I did the first recording session today. After three takes I have one which I consider usable, but not good. One wrong note, and some other problems. Even though, I am calmer knowing that I have SOMETHING - maybe I will manage to get something better in the course of next few days.

Wrong note is one thing, screwed phrasing and dynamics is another... I'm all over the place with some of the notes, and some of them stick out like a huge rusty nail. bah

Hey all. I'm done with my rendition of 62/2. I'm not completely happy with it because the red-eyed monster blinked and stared me down too hard in spots, but it came out alright I think. Plus I won't get another chance to record this week after work with the wife and kid running around. smile

Hey gerg, I went to the site. Nice layout btw. Did you mean that we should e-mail the MP3/link to that address? It almost sounded like there would be a submission system on the site, but I couldn't find it.

My MP3 is over 2MB, so should I just send a box.net link to that e-mail?
Thanks for your hard work.

Can't wait to hear all the submissions.
Happy E-Cital!

I would appreciate it, yes. Several of us are working together on this.

Yes, please do use box.net for now because of the 2MB limit.

Thanks! smile

(And oddly enough, the test recording of 3.8MB that I sent to test this mechanism came through even though I received an "undeliverable" message. confused )

Gerg, I just had a look at the new site. I would very much like you to change one thing: Our Friend's name is Fryderyk, not Frédéric.

Thanks for everything.

I made my recording over the weekend. It isn't perfect, but I couldn't do it at home because my piano is out of tune. Instead I did it at my church and was able to get a recording that was okay. I doubt I'll have time to make more recordings before the deadline, so it is what it is. I had to record it on my camera (my only recording device) and it is NOT in MP3 format. How can I change the format of my recording? I'll submit it via box.net once I figure out how to change formats.

carolyn, congratulations! Hope you are well, and that morning sickness has not been too unkind.

Mati is exactly right. Just send a link to your box.net via recording AT chopinrecital.org; we will handle the rest.

I can't wait to hear your work.

All right -- emailed my link to the chopinrecital address. Let me know if it doesn't get through.

This fell so far short of what I had hoped, but it's the best I can do right now.

And I just got the piano tuned on Friday, but it sounds horrible. mad Maybe I'll send this recording to the piano tuner. smirk

I submitted mine tonight. There are a few mistakes. And the camera didn't pick up much in the way of dynamics. Oh well. I'm glad I was able to participate and I had a lot of fun learning this piece! Having this deadline really kept me motivated to practice when motivation was in short supply during the first few months of my pregnancy!

Now I can focus on learning some pieces for Christmas and starting a new big piece for next year (just for fun though!). For Christmas, I'm working on a Nutcracker medley, mostly because my daughters are obsessed with ballet, especially The Nutcracker.

My baby started responding to my playing piano last night (specifically a Bach fugue and Clair de Lune), so that should keep me motivated to practice at least until he arrives! I'm hoping he is a music lover and someday a pianist himself!

Same here Carolyn, sent mine and as I wrote in the e-mail, after listening to my recording, I thought I had made a step longer than my leg lenght, but I'm so glad I did because of the deep study I had to deal with (of course I'm talking about one of the easisest nocturne, cant' figure with the hardest ones).
It was by far the most studied piece of my piano life and it taught a lot in term of musical analysis - even though little passed in the recording frown - and learning discipline. To be honest when I started to play piano three years ago nocturnes were not even in my ambition list, so it's been really a great achievement for me.

Just waiting to listen to the nocturne collection and to get an inspirational clue on the one to choose next.

I hope next time you won't put an entry audition because of my performance...

Beginners! I sent Mary Rose a recording of my Nocturne a few weeks ago. I just had my piano tuned today and decided to knock off another recording - this one sounds better if for no other reason than that the piano is in tune. Would I be able to send this new and improved Nocturne somewhere without hopelessly confusing things.
thanks

Some good news: the hosting service has FIXED the 2MB file size limits. Some of these files are over 8MB yet still came through successfully as attachments. So a shout-out to Gate.com is in order - we didn't expect them to fix this until after the recital date.

Also a shout-out to all of you for the names! Thank you so much! You've made this easier.

Peyton 9/1
Piano Again 27/1
Chardonnay 27/2
Schubertian 32/1 (your retake)
Chopinet 37/1
Gerg 37/2
Jazzyprof 48/1
Elene 48/2
Sotto Voce 55/2
Peyton 72/1

(Now who am I missing?)

Caroline227 see your PM - we need your help!

Is anyone getting failure notices sending files to recordings AT chopinrecital.org?

In testing, I received failure notices on attachments that nonetheless arrived intact.

In:

Peyton 9/1
Timmyab 9/3
Piano Again 27/1
Chardonnay 27/2
Schubertian 32/1
Chopinet 37/1
Gerg 37/2
Jazzyprof 48/1
Elene 48/2
Sotto Voce 55/2
Carolyn227 62/1
Peyton 72/1

What I'd like to know is if there are any legitimate failures, i.e. anyone who A) sent in a recording and B) is not on the list above.

Thanks!

I'm still rather unhappy with my recording but I don't want to cut it too close so I've been trying to upload my file on box.net. However, I'm continually unable to do so because of some limit they're put up. What should I do?

Alex, how big is the file? I've used MediaFire as an alternative to Box Net for uploading files larger than 10 MB because MediaFire had no such limitation.

Box Net is nice because of its integrated player, which means people can listen to your file without actually downloading it. But if it's going to be downloaded anyway, it shouldn't matter which site hosts it.

You can send it directly as an attachment to recordings AT chopinrecital.org

Also, MaryRose gave you her personal e-mail. Either way, we will get it and you will be in the recital!
