OK, this is my first time posting a recording, plus my first time using box.net, so hopefully this will work!

This is a piece I wrote several years ago called Trovador:

Riddler/Ed, great piece! I enjoyed listening to it.

Morodiene, I enjoyed your original improvision! It was great! Your real piano sounded great too… what kind is it?

Thanks, I have a Petrof concert grand. I really don't have a space that odes it justice though. I should move out to the country and convert a barn into a concert hall! lol

Thanks! I was inspired by how a lot of Spanish influenced music combines major and minor modes together and tried to write in that way.

I really enjoyed your playing, foxyw. This is quite a challenging piece with that jumpy LH!

Bill - very nice! Enjoyed your singing and playing very much! Such a nice voice.

Morodiene - very nice piece! I enjoyed your playing and your piano really sounds great! I like how the piece is both peaceful and intense and has such energy.

Thank you both for your kind comments about my recording of Tchaikovsky's Italian Song. It is a piece that I am just finishing working on with my teacher. It is fun to play and has helped me with phrasing and to learn to better balance the volume in each hand.

liked the way it got denser and denser and almost crazy then suddenly (about 2/3 in) it opens out to complete simplicity again. Thanks smile

TrueBeginner, I started listening and thought 'this is nice' then after a while i noticed i had beeen gazing out of the window at the beautiful garden in a dream - I think yours is very calming music. And the end was intriguing, like a little question.

Foxyw, nice tchaikovsky, and a perfect rendition i think, well I didn't hear any misses smile congratulations on nailing it.

Thats all i've time and brain for now, except that sam's (harpsichord, yay!) bach gounod is going to play for me as I make a pot of tea ready for some practice, thanks in advance sam smile

Hi everybody,

What is the idea behind the 'Piano Bar'? do you send in your performances and recordings by month? What is the difference between the piano bar and member recordings forum?

It is good to hear everybody here is enjoying the music!

Larry - enjoyed "Sultry", which can be either a hot summer evening or a hot summer evening dress laugh Ice tea would be just fine - or maybe an adult beverage of the Southern kind...

Sam and Laurie, nice job! Brought back memories of my wedding back in '78 when my father in law sang it. What you said about lack of dynamic control on the harpsichord made me think that would be a good instrument for me. Dynamics on the piano is a challenge for me as a recovering accordion player. I think it would be fun to build one from a kit too.

Riddler, that's nice music. Aren't those backing tracks wonderful? I was just noodling around on my synthesizer yesterday and hearing the percussion tracks always inspires new compositions.

b528nf7, very nice job on this one, maybe my favorite of the ones you've posted.. I think the song is very well suited to your voice and style. I love your improvs, you've got good intuitions about this kind of music.

Sam (and Laurie) - excellent playing on "Ave Maria" - you guys work well together and it must be fun for you - I know it is for us.

You're correct - the Bach Prelude is in the so-called "Ambitious Section" in the back of Alfred 3, and some really good renditions of it can be heard in recent posting in the Alfred 3 thread by Undone , Waltz and TTigg .

Poor Squeaky the gray tabby appears at about a minute into the video. She is mostly deaf. Her ears are locked to the front, never swiveling like a normal cat's. She cannot hear low tones, but she can hear high tones. To get her attention we whistle. Her meow is a pitiful squeak, which is how she got her name. Whenever she hears Laurie's recorder she comes running. I can imagine her saying, "I can hear you! I can hear you!"

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. We do have fun playing together, and that's the most important part.

I haven't posted to the piano bar myself (yet) but saw no one had answered your question yet and thought I'd take a stab at it.

The member recordings forum seems to be a place where people post for critical feedback. Most of what's there are polished pieces or works-in-progress that a member is looking for constructive critique on. It's kind of a "serious" place (in a good way).

The piano bars are just plain fun. Polished, works-in-progress, just-started-on-it, and everything else in between. Make music. Share music. Enjoy music. It's all good. You can ask for critiques or advice here, too, but mostly it's about the joy of playing and listening.

Riddler - really, really good stuff! - "Blue Trane" is cool, swinging Coltrane - good gravy, I can remember listening to Coltrane and Miles and The Modern Jazz Quartet & Monk and Cannonball Aderly many years ago on the original vinyl - just marvelous playing thumb

Bill - I liked this a lot, as much as anything you've done to date - entertaing version of a great old standard - Ray Charles has to be smiling down on you from that great "Soul Train" in the sky - like the many voices of the Clavinova too (that's what I play).

Thanks Larry B,

That is a very clear explanation. I think it is good to have two seperate forums! critical comments about your playing or compositions when you're just having fun is not fun!

John Frank - Thanks for the kind words. Although I still have and love my Clavinova this piece was performed on my Roland digital grand that I got a couple of months ago.

Riddler, I think this is my favorite of your recordings so far. It sounds so polished and professional!

Bill, loved your "Georgia"! You made all those runs sound effortless, and your voice suits the song perfectly. I have to say, though, I could've done without the Roland String Quartet. whome

foxyw: Congratulations on your first-ever piano bar submission! With pieces like that, you'd better submit to the next recital! grin Your Zoom sounds good, too.

Morodiene: You wrote that?! wow That was extremely impressive. I loved how it started off with more of a slower, brooding tango air, and then got increasingly more complex, culminating in that section in the middle where it went all wild... lovely! I hope we can hear more from you. smile

Larry's nailed it. A third option for sharing music is our quarterly AB Forum Recitals (look at the top of the forum page for a thread about the current recital we just hosted).

Welcome to the forum, jis! smile

Thanks so much, Monica. I'm glad you enjoyed it smile. I'm surprised this forum is really the only active one with posting recordings. I suppose it's a bit more open and friendly about it than the Pianists Corner. Still, there are some valuable things that could be learned from the regulars there. But it was fun posting it here!

So many wonderful tunes already posted up, very enjoyable.

Here is my crack at it.

I will put up a few more (some old standards and some improvs like this one) as the month progresses.

Happy December!
