Title of piece:Prelude Op 2
Composer:Scriabin
Duration:00:57
Source of music: http://www.sailwave.com/music/skr-op22.pdf
Instrument used:Yamaha U1
Recording method:Edirol R-09, Audacity.
Critical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:Like the ever popular Op2 etude, Scriabin composed this when he was a teenager but it is unmistakeably Scriabin. People talk about his early Chopin phase but I'm not sure ther ever was one. Yes, he composed a cycle of 24 preludes but according to one source (Henle) he was already disenchanted with Chopin by then. I hear Scriabin as his own man, even from his earliest works... I have posted this in a piano bar previously - recital piece not ready yet...

This Bach's Prelude in C major is a rather simple piece, but playing it with left hand alone is really something else. \:\)

Duration:01:41
Source of music:From Succeeding with the Masters, Baroque Era Vol. 1 by Helan Marlais
Instrument used:Casio Privia PX-720
Recording method:Line-in on iRiver iHP-140, converted to mp3 via Audacity

Additional info:This is the second piece I've submitted to the Piano World Recital. I've attempted to add more of the ornamentations this time, however timing of these notes leaves a lot to be desired.

I plan to keep working on this piece whilst learning newer pieces so any constructive criticism is more than welcome.

Title of piece:Stone's Rag
Duration:02:19
Source of music:Fiddler's Fakebook
Instrument used:Casio Privia PX-100
Recording method:keyboard to PC, audacity
Critical feedback wanted:No
Additional info:The band I'm in played for a weekend-long contra dance camp a couple of weeks ago, and we needed everything we had ever learned and then some in order to have enough sets to not bore everyone with a bunch of repeats. One of our older sets included this rag, but we didn't really, as a group, get it back up to speed. So, anticipating that we'd need it anyway, I revived it as a piano rag, like we had played it a couple of years ago. I made up enough variations of the first rag to be able to play it 6 times thru, and then did 4 variations of Stone's, and the fiddles did a couple. We ended up not using the set for a contra, but used the other rag, slowed down and swung, for an impromptu swing workshop, and this one, slowed down, for a choreographed shottish workshop \:D So it all payed off. And - I got a recital piece thrown in, sort of free. For a week after the camp my fingers were rubber, and they're really not quite back yet, and I'm pretty burnt out on this, but here it is, 4 variations at 116, sort of. Pretend like you're contra dancing, and there are also guitars, mandolins, and bodhrans going, and you won't hear the mistakes \:D

This also shows my beginning attempts to be able to improvise. None of this is actually improvised - it's all carefully rehearsed bits that I can mix and match. But I find, if I'm playing it a lot, that the mix and match comes at non-planned times, so it's varied subconsciously, or maybe unconsciously. So my hope is that maybe someday I'll have enough variations inside me that I can actually begin, at slower speeds, to be able to alter things on the fly. It's a thought -

Title of piece:Album for the young Nr. 26 *** (untitled)
Composer:Robert Schumann
Duration:03:04
Source of music:sheet music
Instrument used:rebuilt Weihenmeyer & Co upright (ca. 1921)
Recording method:one Shure PG 81 into Sony Minidisc Recorder into computer using Audacity
Critical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This is one of three untitled pieces in Schumann's op 68 (Album for the young).

Guess what happens when you finally manage to beat the red dot syndrome and play your piece almost to your liking? Either your recording system will get a hiccup or your feathered pet friends will start a live commentary about your playing ... I had to chose between these two interesting versions - so here goes Robert Schumann featuring Galileo and Pythagoras with a squeaking improvised vocal accompaniment towards the end of the piece.

Source of music:When I was playing around with the chords for Autumn Leaves today, I came up with the themes from the recording. Then I recorded it a few times, each time improvising most of the piece. This is the last recording of the bunch. I left all the klunkers in.
Instrument used:Yamaha CP33 digital piano
Recording method:First MIDI, then back into the piano to capture the audio using Audacity. Unfortunately, my soundcard seems to have developed a hiss. Just pretend the MP3 is from an old vinyl record. :-)
Critical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:The movie was "Cinema Paradiso".

Composer:Louis-Claude Daquin
Duration:01:28
Source of music:Sheet Music
Instrument used:Yamaha P-90
Recording method:Audacity
Critical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:I had a hard time finding phrasing and expressiveness that fit this piece, then decided that Cuckoos make a structured, precise sound that doesn’t carry much emotion. So I worked at playing the piece with precision and the repeated sound that imitates the repetitive sound of a Cuckoo.

Title of piece:You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To
Composer:Cole Porter
Duration:04:21
Source of music:This was an improvisation of the sheet music from a Frank Sinatra song book.
Instrument used:Roland FP-7
Recording method:I used the Zoom H4 and Audacity
Critical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:This piece gave me fits to say the least. I struggled trying to find the right tempo. It was either too fast or too slow. Also, the sheet music was very bare bones in structure so it needed a lot of additional stuff. The toughest part was finding an acceptable left hand accompaniment.

Title of piece:Theme from Etude Op. 10, No 3.
Composer:Frederic Chopin
Duration:01:48
Source of music:Alfred’s Adult All-In-One volume 2
Instrument used:Yamaha YPG-625
Recording method:Line-out to MiniDisk to line-in on computer
Critical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:I had hoped to submit my first non Alfred’s All-In-One recital piece this time around but another on-the-ball member beat me to the punch by submitting the same piece I had been preparing. So I fell back to plan two and started polishing up another Alfred’s piece to submit in its stead. Unfortunately (for me) this piece was also submitted for this recital. So I ended up cramming to get this final selection in some sort of shape for the recital. I know it was just played in the previous recital, but I was out of options.

I truly love this piece and hope to someday be able tackle the full, unadulterated, score.

Source of music:Sheet music - The Best Of Ludovico Einaudi
Instrument used:Roland RD-300SX
Recording method:Digital Piano recorded into Adobe Audition via my Xenyx mixer and the line in of my sound card.
Critical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:I started learning this piece soon after the previous recital, so I've been working on it for almost 3 months now along with various other things (my attention span doesn't allow me to focus on one piece at a time). It is one of my favourite Einaudi pieces I've heard from the 'Best Of' collection of sheet music.....hopefully I'll be able to do it justice some day!

Duration:01:32
Source of music:Mostly sheet music from Alfred's Adult All-In-One. Added a couple of broken chords to lengthen the piece. One day I'll manage something over 2 minutes. :-)
Instrument used:Yamaha Digital Piano - YPG-625.

Critical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:Had a technically tougher Burgmuller piece ready, but it was too short. I've been thinking about making a bedtime CD for my daughter, so I had been working on this piece, too. Just realized all my recital pieces were composed by Johann B's - Bach, Burmuller and now Brahams. I think they're all done by the same guy using an alias.

Additional info:I love the chords on this one. Normally I work a lot on putting in a lot of chord substitutions but this one doesn't really need it, just a few subs. If you want to hear a really incredible solo piano version of this check out 7notemode on YouTube. Now that I know the song I think I might try to delve into 7notemode's tutorial on this song.

Additional info:There are four errors, a slight hesitation, and an overall lack of refined musicality here. That said, it's not a bad effort for me, to be honest. For more thoughts, I posted a blog entry on this recital piece: http://aw2pp.blogspot.com/2008/11/first-recital-submission.html

Duration:03:30
Source of music:sheet music
Instrument used:Samick upright
Recording method:Edirol R-09 digital recorder

Additional info:This piece still has a lot of warts, especially in the D section, but I guess it's as good as it's going to get for the time being. I'm pretty happy with the speed. Trying to work up my ragtime chops without messing up my left elbow. All feedback welcome and appreciated.

Happiness is a freshly tuned piano.

Title of piece:The Portrait
Composer:James Horner
Duration:04:10
Source of music:Play-by-ear.
Instrument used:Fatar somethingorother MIDI keyboard.
Recording method:Done at a recording studio session which was very cool!
Critical feedback wanted:Yes
Additional info:Just over 5 years ago, my dad told me that he wanted me to learn this piece for his 50th birthday, and it was one of the reasons I decided to start playing the piano after having played the keyboard when I was much younger. I have no sheet music for it so the way I play it has changed a lot, but I think this recording is pretty close to James Horner's original performance since I listened over and over to the real thing before recording this.

Also I HATE the Celine Dion version of this! Yuck!
