In flagrant imitation of Mary-Rose's Chopin E-cital I would like to organize a similar event in recognition of Schumann's bicentennial June 8 2010. That is 10 months away.

If you are interested in participating let me know and I will post a list of pieces and performers. I have no illusions about being able to cover all of Schumann's music, so I think of this more as a gesture of recognition- so the day does not pass by and Robert is there wondering what happened. Duplicates, extemporizing, re-writing - it's all good.

I"ll bump this thread from time to time to keep you on your toes.

OT, but I'm curious about the consensus: was Schumann's best work in his piano output? These works are without a doubt both fantastic and generally accessible but exclude, for example, his Violin Concerto in D-Minor.

It would probably be wrong for me not to contribute something to this as much as I love Schumann. I would love to go out and say something outlandish like I'd play op 15 in its entirety, but that's just not going to happen in my lifetime, let alone ten months. smile

I'll take Op 15, No 1 and 2. Much as I think 2, might do me in, I need something to motivate me to fix measures 9-12 at a proper tempo.

I'll do "A Curious Story", From Foreign lands and People (A chance to improve on my last performance) and "An Important Event" all from Opus 15.

Woops just looked at Home in My Shoes. I may have picked two of his. Not sure as there are no numbers in my Schumann book. If so then I would take An Important Event from Opus 15 and Chiarina from Opus 9.

Put me down for Der Dichter Spricht from Op. 15. I'd like some impetus to learn more of Op. 15 than just Träumerei. grin

If you want Peyton, you can have "A Curious Story" (2) and "From Foreign Lands" (1) from op. 15 and I'll take "Pleading Child" (4). I need to rework my interpretation of it.

Or you and I can put ours together and see what we like better prior to the recital out of 1, 2, 4, and 6?

I'm not really set on this one.

Peyton - HomeInMyShoes signed up for #1 (Foreign lands and people) and #2 (Strange Story) from Kinderszenen Op 15. So then I'll sign you up for Op 15 #6 = "Wichtige Begebenheit" = "Important Occurance"; and Op 9 Carnaval: Chiarina
if that's ok.

:P Haha. The first non adult-beginners e-cital I'm attempting to participate in and I'm making a mess of it.

I emailed Peyton and said he could have 1 and 2. I'll take "Bittendes Kind" (4) and "Am Kamin" (8) instead. I'll have to actually learn "Am Kamin" from scratch. Ten months should be enough time. Hopefully.

In summary:
Peyton: "Von fremden Landern und Menschen", "Kuriose Geshichte", Wichtige Begebenheit" (1,2,6)
HomeInMyShoes: "Bittendes Kind", "Am Kamin" (4,8)

What a wonderful idea! I must look into my Schumann CD's and find something I will be possibly able to play on time (considering I still have to do my Mazurka 7/3 for March thumb ), and I hope I will manage to participate too! smile Now I'm completely lost, as I'm not really familiar with his compositions, which is sad and I hope to change that in the near future.

Well Mati this should be an excellent opportunity to become acquainted with R.S. - there is so much good stuff there you won't have any trouble finding something you like - pretty soon you will be saying "Frederic who?"

and anyway, it's all still 10 months away - time enough to forget all about it and then scramble the last week to put something together!

Is there any chance of putting my name down for Kinderszenen Op 15 #1 (Von Fremden Laendern und Menschen)? I see from above it's already taken by Peyton, but as Peyton's name is against 4 pieces in total, is that not a bit greedy? grin

Fair enough as you shouted first, but I still don't think it's very fair that some people have already got their name down against more than one piece when others haven't had a chance to pick one yet.

Gerry.. don't want you to be miffed. (It's a friendly forum after all...) Please go ahead and take #1 (although Home In My Shoes was the first to pick #1 and #2 so he should have final say). If we can only have one piece then I guess I'll take Chiarina. Are we just limited to one piece?
