Originally, I learned this piece planning for the May recital but I could not make it on time. I don't want to miss it for Mothers Day too. Unfortunately I have to work all days today and did not have time to make a decent take or polish it. So here it is, with all the flaws and mistakes Lettre A Ma Mere
Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers in the world including the two greatest ones: mine and my daughters'.

That is a very beautiful melody. You played it with very sweet emotions. Mom would be proud!

Now the recital isn't even closed for submission yet, so why do you say you could not make it on time?? Mahlzeit is just saying on that sumittal thread our numbers are too low!! Why not submit it amyway, (even if you've made its debut here.)

Thanks Rosanna for your kind words. I have summitted another piece for recital. This will be my first for everything, first recital, first recording, first time working with Audacity. I know that under pressure of the deadline comming and lack of time to practice, there is no way I can smooth out the second and the last passages ( Oh I hate all the black keys, why they are so small )

Very nice piece! And in my opinion, very well played.

Listening gave me a few minutes to relax at work and just enjoy the music. Thanks! I wish I was at this point that I could play something nice for my mom and my wonderful wife on Mother's Day.

That's why they are raised, to elevate their small stature. :p

Congrats on all your firsts. Look forward to your recital piece too.
