Note: the original thread for this was lost during the forum change over, if i have missed anyone I sincerely apologise

The idea was proposed in the Adult Beginner’s Forum’s Proposed Chopin Nocturne Recital List that the Pianist Corner organises a “Concert Etude Recital”.

The date has been chosen as July 31st, Liszt’s death date, to commemorate his fantastic work in the style. Only 1 performance of each piece may be done (eg. no “double ups”) as well as the title of the piece referring to, or including the word “etude”

A big thank you to YD who has kindly offered a website to host the collection of fantastic performances i’m sure we’ll hear

I've been extremely busy this past semester, and I haven't had the 3 hours a day I'd need to be practicing to get the Liszt down. I'm going to have to withdraw from the recital.

Hi playadom,

I PM'ed Zac a few days ago to submit a tentative La Leggierezza offer[1], having been slightly disappointed that someone had already bagged Wilde Jagd. So now I don't know what to do! smile

Can an unfavorable forum member, somebody who's pretty much personae non grata in this section enter this jamboree? frown

If I can enter, I'll at least serve to provide a suitable tomato target if y'all bring your baskets of rotten veggies. wink

Can I play my own version of a Chopin or Liszt Etude, or must it be performed as written? tired tired yawn

Can I enter with an Etude of my own composition; something guaranteed to confound and bewilder? thumb

of course you can BJones, you can play anything you like, I'd be very interested in hearing your own etude composition(s). The only stipulation to what you play is that it has "etude" in its title otherwise its completly up to you

I actually just started composing an etude this weekend. Now I have an incentive to learn it!

I'm not going to have Chopin op.10 no.5 ready by July, I don't think. I had an operation on my right hand last month for an infected cat bite which disrupted the practise schedule a little, as you can imagine. I might well have op.10 no.2 in a usable state though.

I'll take a look at my book of Chopin etudes and see what isn't taken yet.

One problem is my parents' piano is out of tune, and I have black keys that stick on my electronic keyboard (probably because it's next to the air conditioner). I would ask to get the piano tuned (I always offer to pay for this sort of thing, like I did when the b flat string popped up), but because my grandfather is in the hospital with a serious illness I do not feel comfortable asking them to have the piano tuned right now. I feel like it would be kind of insensitive.

I would like to reserve Op 25, No. 11. I havn't played it before but I think I can pull it off by July if I work on it in sections and focus on my fingering.

Thanks for the great opportunity.

How does this work, do we record ourselves playing, or what?

Yes, you (or whoever) records you playing.

By the way, changing the subject a little, it occurred to me the other day that it's worth mentioning that if one is TOO slick, there may be requests to prove it really is the person represented as playing that is actually playing. Attempts to fake everyone out have happened before with this sort of self-produced stuff in various forums.

I've decided that I can't proceed with this so I am releasing Op 25, No. 11. I just won't have a performance quality version by July.

I know but for a variety of reasons it just isn't going to happen by July. I used to play the "revolutionary" but never played any of the others. I used to play the c sharp minor scherzo also but have forgotten all of it. I used to know how to play the ravel sonatine, Rhapsody in Blue (most of it), carolina shout, and the closing theme from Empire Strikes Back, but I've forgotten it all.

Maybe I'll get my act together but it's difficult because practicing piano means taking time away from composing, and I really don't have much time to begin with.

Zac or YD, could you let us know how/when to upload our files? I'm going to be travelling in France up until the end of July and am not sure I'll be back for the 7/31 deadline. I would be able to upload the file before I leave (mid-June).

Thanks!
