The list has been updated - see top of first page of this thread.

Welcome Theowne, Mistaya, and Pianolicious! Please check the list and see if you are comfortable with these pieces next to your names \:\)

I will remove the asterisks from the list if we do not hear back within the next day or so from Op30No3 and Ragnhild.

Theowne, I put your name next to #19 as well, as you sound confident it is within your abilities. #11 is indeed in the short-and-sweet category.

I can easily do #5 or #19 in two months, I suggested #10 based on its shortness, thinking that I would be a backup for the last minute.

I do have large hands, but I'd rather not do 19.
#12 is just murder. It's sort of like 10.2.
Anyway, Frycek, what tempo do you play #22 at?

They're just so nice, I'll probably learn them anyway!

Great new list, Greg, but just a thought. We have Thalamus down for 20. I don't think I'm going to hear from him. 20 is easy, so I can volunteer or if someone new or someone else would like it, that's OK also.

Can I be in the Chopin recital?. I have a very unorthodox version of prelude in C minor (opus no 28) under my belt. It is very similar to Barry Maniow's "could it be magic" in which he based most of that piece on.

I have posted this piece somewhere a while back but it has drastically changed since then. I'm not sure if "improvised" classical music is allowed.

Well, Super Hunky, I'll have to take your request up with the committee. I don't know what committee yet; but one will definitely have to be formed to decide upon such issues as using a Barry Manilow interpretation of a Chopin composition which is also somewhat of an improvisation of both or one or the other or neither.

I think we will need about 3 years to get back to you on this?

But thanks for your interest.

This thread is moving awfully quickly.

19 sounds AWFULLY hard. Let me listen to all four and get back to you.

Maybe I should let Monica K. pick one for me. She knows what I can and cannot follow through on.

Let me sight-read some and get back to you.

I start school Monday -- 18 credit hours all cores -- so I am not going to commit till I talk to my instructor. 2 months ain't that much time.

5 and 19 sure look pretty though. Let me play around with them I need a break today anyway.

Pianolicious, Theowne wants to play #19. See the list at the top of this thread (page 1) for the most up-to-date assignment.

I believe we have you down for #5. Do let us know about your confidence level, if you think it is doable in the timeframe. Thanks!

I've never seen Hershey play anything, so I'm not sure what you mean. Is this like Argerich-fast?

I'm not familiar with her recording. The only recording I know of on the net is Paderewski's on the Classic Music archives. Hershey's is a bit faster than that and a good bit wilder, deliberately. I said I was trying for it, I doubt if I'll make it.

Monica K. thinks you're crazy to take on a new commitment like learning an "awfully hard" Chopin Prelude in two months, that also happen to coincide with starting a demanding new academic program, without asking your teacher first. \:D

(Though I'm sure you could do it and would enjoy hearing you play it. \:\) )

BTW, the timing for this #12 is about 1 minute and 10 seconds. Did I say it's a tough piece?

Well, it seems that I'll have to resort to the 'Ol "If you can't join em, beat em" theory then!. No worries. Something possibly for the next AB recital.

Mr. S-H, #14 is still unofficially up for grabs, if you do want to participate. No one seems to want to play it.

No promises. \:D

I'll be great if the recital is postponed until March. Although I really don't care. I really should have started earlier.

I can play both hands HS in about 1 min each, and I've just started to join.

I'll do 14 if nobody else offers to do so, but I'd rather give someone else the chance.

Playadom, if you're doing HS at 1 min you're doing quite well! \:D If you can, try to get it to 45 sec. HS if possible so you have enough "error cushion" when you join them HT. It's quite a nice Slavic dance piece. You'll do quite well with it, I am sure \:\)

I'll put you down for #14. It doesn't seem overtly difficult - most of the "challenges" are in the dynamics. Maybe you can bring out something special from it...

I'm sure that the dynamics, however good I might play them, might be muffled a bit by my horrible microphone.

Well gerg you heard it from Monica. I do like 12 though. It's melodic and harmonic.

Maybe the next recital . . . I'll put something in the piano bar though. I'll be the afterglow act.

Have fun!

I think you are moving awfully fast with this decisions, I can't follow only because of the time zone - what if Op30no3 is on holiday ??

Thanks, Mistaya for playing number 6 - it is beautiful and I like it very much, but there is no way that my piano can give justice to this very fine prelude.

I've told a month ago that I could play no 11, but I guess that is just another of my stupid childish opinions ;\)

Hey, I do not want to play number 6, It has given me a really hard time because the bass of my piano is too muddy, the una corda pedal makes it sound like choking and no pedal sounds pling-plong.
I'll play no 6 the day I can afford a Bösendorfer ;\)

I said earlier http://www.pianoworld.com/ubb/ubb/ultimatebb.php?/topic/32/4531.html#000000 that I can do no 11 if there's a crisis - it sounds ok on a light piano - but things does not seem to have gone that far, no crisis yet....

Apart from that, everybody : Go slow, take care, make a nice recital and don't eat people for lunch !

Okay, Ragnhild, no troubles. ;\)

We just need solid commitments from everyone who volunteers to play something, so there are no holes. We cannot have seventeen people volunteering for #7, while #5 is left unplayed. That is the trouble we seem to be running into...

I would really value your participation here, if you want to... will see what I can do re #11 - that is a perfect piece for you. You mean a great deal to this forum. \:\)
