Instrument used:Yamaha YPG-625

Critical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:I had a hard time deciding which of two pieces to submit for this recital. I finally chose this piece because my interpretation of it is quite different from the other versions of it I’ve found posted here. This version just feels more “Nocturne-ish” to me.

Title of piece:(This is Not Your Mother's) Black and White Rag
Composer:(With Apologies to) George Botsford
Duration:03:54
Source of music:Fiddler's Fake Book
Instrument used:Casio PX-100
Recording method:digital to PC thru audacity
Critical feedback wanted:No
Additional info:Oh, lunch! Maybe that's the problem! No lunch!

I've been playing this for several years. I first heard rags through the Western swing/old-time traditions, so they're not played straight in my recollection. I found this in a fiddle/lead sheet book, so I had to make up my own bass, which took several months. Since most of the rags I had played were Joplin, my bass has Joplin influences. Later I downloaded the original Botsford Black and White from the Lester Levy Collection. This version bears a family resemblance to that one \:\) , and I like my bass better \:D .

I will have to admit this is the first time I've been disappointed in my recital submission, but there's just been too much going on at work. Oh well, as we say \:D

I am really looking forward to the other rags submitted for this recital - ragtime forever!

Title of piece:Nocturne Op. 37 No. 2
Composer:Frederic Chopin
Duration:05:12
Source of music:Schirmer's Vol. 39
Instrument used:1893 Knabe 6'2
Recording method:Conventional home studio setup to PC-based DAC
Critical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This is the cleanest take I can get right now. It is not perfect as I've been out of practice for too long, but is the best I have to offer.

I have not revisited the score in quite some time; anything missed (apart from standard amateur artifacts/mistakes), critical feedback welcomed.

I hope you enjoy this piece. It has long, long been one of my favorites. I share it as a gift of love through song as my own meager contribution to Recital #11.

Title of piece:Suteki Da Ne
Composer:Nobuo Uematsu
Duration:03:49
Source of music:Sheet Music - FFX Piano Collections
Instrument used:Roland RD-300SX
Recording method:Recorded straight into Adobe Audition (more advanced program than Audacity) in a single take.
Critical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:I found this very tricky to learn at first because its almost entirely made up of triplets in the left hand, but it proved to be a great practice in developing this rhythm. A few errors have slipped in to this recording and the timing is off in several places, but on the whole I'm quite pleased as I managed to record it in a single take (the 3rd attempt, due to Audacity crashing) and I only finished learning it a short while ago. With a little more time I'm sure I can polish it up to more of a performance standard, but this will have to do for this recital.

For lunch, I had a pasty.

Additional info:I understand this is a practice piece, not a performance piece. Still, for me it represents one step in the long journey of learning piano, and a critical evaluation by members of Piano World would be appreciated. Personally I don't think I play it very smoothly, especially the third movement, but in the recording I am trying to play as fast as I accurately can.

Additional info:Last weekend while on vacation we found a piano store, so I just had to play the fanciest grand they had. I recorded it on my brand new iPhone. \:\)

This is the very first thing I played after I sat down. There was more, but the rest of the recording had too much talking in it so I kept only this part.

Additional info:Couldn't decide what to submit and decided to record some things just to see what I could come up with?, after a while I eventually started playing around with this song and ended up with about 6 minutes of "fooling around" (for y'all to suffer) - and as its extra long I'm sure Monica will love it so, seeing as she loves the Heebeegeebees so much!

Composer:Johann Burgmuller
Duration:01:46
Source of music:Sheet Music
Instrument used:Yamaha Digital: YPG-625
Recording method:Ipod using Micromemo attachment
Critical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This piece is in a book put out by Alfred publishing called Burgmuller, Czerny and Hanon - 32 Piano Studies Selected for Technique and Musicality. Basically, you work on some Czerny & Hanon excercises that lead to a Burgmuller piece employing some of those techniques. I really enjoy it and it is supplmenting my Alfred Adult Book 2, which is not the most exciting in the world. Anyway, I hope the variations in dynamics came through. I promise I really played this well for my teacher this past week, but the red dot was battling tough this time. Thanks. GregF

Additional info:I know you've all heard this piece many times - but it's all I've got ready - and I seem to be learning the same pieces as Ted S. I did play this at a live recital, and managed to get through it with only one wobble - and I was pretty pleased - low expectations and all that. There is hope. I think these recitals have made a difference to reducing performance anxiety for me.

Title of piece:Cinema Paradiso
Composer:Ennio Morricone
Duration:01:31
Source of music:Leadsheet
Instrument used:Yamaha S90ES
Recording method:Audacity
Critical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:I love the sound and feel of this song. My version is a bit short. I've tried many variations but nothing really strikes me like just sticking to the main theme and that is a fairly brief theme. However with the huge amount of wonderful music we get in these recitals, I'm not worried about this being a bit short.

Title of piece:Barcarolle (June, from the Seasons)
Composer:Tchaikovsky
Duration:04:38
Source of music:memorized from sheet music
Instrument used:Yamaha CLP175
Recording method:Digital to PC & Synthfont
Critical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This piece is definitely a work in progress for me. I just recently memorized the notes
and haven't spent much time on polishing. Unless I'm able to sumbit a better recording before the
recital deadline, this recording contains a few wrong notes and a couple places
where I had to stop myself & start over. It is what it is...my playing with flaws & all.
For better or for worse, it has always been my habit to try to learn to play pieces that are more technically advanced than my capabilities. An unconventional approach, for sure.

Title of piece:Waiting for Arrival
Composer:polostrings
Duration:01:51
Source of music:polostrings original
Instrument used:Kawai GM 10-K
Recording method:Zoom H2
Critical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This piece is inspired by my brother who is expecting his first child, and my sister who is adopting her first child. Both processes are very similar. They both entail excitement, patience, and fear. This piece is about the patience, 9 months for the birth, and who knows how long for the adoption. It takes me back to the birth of my long awaited son, whom we seemed to wait our whole lives for. He is the one who makes us a family.

Title of piece:Raindrop Prelude
Composer:Chopin - Schaum
Duration:03:16
Source of music:Book of Chopin pieces modified by Schaum (I know, it's embarrassing)
Instrument used:Kawai G 10
Recording method:Zoom H2
Critical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:I heard the real Raindrop Prelude played in a Halo trailer on Youtube and forgot how much I liked this piece. I decide to tackle an easier version first. The subtleties and dynamics of this piece are still way beyond me, even in an easy piece. One day.....
