Nice! It's exciting that the body of work is large enough that so many people can be involved.

I'm deciding between op. 30 no. 5 and op. 38 no. 6.

Your scheduled performance date of mid February, 2013 will bump right up against the long-running and highly popular ABF Recital which is always scheduled for Feb. 15th (May, Aug., & Nov. 15th also) and which typically draw 50, 60 or more entries.

To space things out and avoid undue severe competition and insure a better chance for success you might want to consider a performance date about half way between any two ABF Recitals, say Apr. 1st, July 1st, etc.

Bumping up the date is a good idea and gives someone like me a chance to recoup from Satie and consider one of these. smile

Any in the level 1 ish area? I don't know a single one of these so... I'll let one you knowledgeable people fill me in!

I agree with your date and am glad that you are trying to "shake things up." smile

That would be so fun if 48 of us agreed to play 1 of the pieces each....lol.

But...so many factors stopping this from happening..among the few - different playing levels and abilities, not everyone likes to play classical, etc....if enough people sign on, count me in!! I'll need to decide now, because I'm an extremely slow learner and need to start now...lol.

TJ, I am sure wayne will work with folk on a better date if you fear competition, but there was no need for suggesting April 1st , thats just out of order.

Only joking TJ, couldnt resist with april fools day an all!

anyways, come on tj how about you?

This is different from the "usual" abf recitals, for a few reasons, one of them being in the "regular" abf recitals folk choose anything they want to play, this is very different, it is themed and also some times folk get whats left, which isnt necesarily what they would have chosen to play...

hence the extra work, it may take folk out of their comfort zone, BUT, that is a shared workload and everyone helps each other be it through Pms on technical advice or just support through the thread.

What do we achieve? Many things not least is a greater knowledge of the scores, through shared study and help, but also a deeper understanding of where the particular composer is "coming from" furthering our understanding and knowledge of that composer.

Furthermore we become a "team" or further strengthen the ABF "community" this is no trivial accomplishment, as many folks are isolated in their home at their piano/dp and laptop.

Some folk have no outside interaction with other musicians, and struggle on without teachers, being part of a team effort, online, on the piano which is their main love, and interacting with like minded folk can be very helpful and raise the bar some , a step forward even.

This will be brilliant and totally doable, no ones expecting top notch allegedly flawless performances, but there will be some is my guess....

What a magic thing to be involved with.....


Here is all 48 songs without words in one video, there are six pieces in each opus, and if you need help finding where your chosen piece is just ask, should you not want to listen to all two hours....

OR, you may want to listen to all of them to help choose a piece....

I think a themed recital is a great idea every now and then. I participated in the Chopin themed recital a while back and it was a lot of fun. Very well run too.

My only concern is the same it has always been and that is not too dilute the quarterly recitals. At least too much.

Not only do we have the quarterly recitals but there are also members performances to watch/listen too in the monthly piano bar as well as seasonal performance-based threads like the holiday performances thread around X-mas time.

Personally, I would like to see even more ways to perform and these themed recitals is a great way to do it. I just wouldn't want a recital popping up every week to the point they are not special any more. The quarterly recitals mean too much for too many people for too many reasons to screw with. At least too much!

Every now and then, you bet. I also agree with Trapper and others about keeping the date a bit separated from the other recital dates.

Also, while hearing a wide diversity of pieces is great, I wouldn't limit any one piece to just one performer. I love hearing different peoples interpretations of the same piece and since this is really a learning environment, why limit....anything? There will still be lots of diversity either way so if two people want to perform the same piece, I say let them both at it.

These pieces are beyond my level - but I will enjoy listening to them.

I would agree with the suggestion to distance the Themed recital from the ABF recital - not only for those who might want to perform in both, but for those who really want to listen to all the pieces and give feedback.

I feel that the hard work of the performers deserves individual feedback, and if there are 50, 60 or 70 ABF recital performers plus 30 some here....well, that's a bit much all at once.

I love this idea,it is great fun, and a super way to bring members of the community together. I hope that somewhere along the line I'll be up for joining in!

Wow, these are going like hot-cakes lol. I totally agree with Rossy, this is so much different from the ABF quartely recitals, and will be so rewarding for each and everyone taking part. A real team effort bringing us all closer together as a group, smile

Yes, it needs to be a month after the ABF recital. That would be March 15, April 15, Sep 15, Dec 15, for example. There is nothing to be gained by competing with the ABF recital.

And the Mendelssohn Songs Without Words are not trivial pieces. There are no easy ones.

Here is a link to the old thread that we had - some good info there:

I would have to work on one with my teacher as one of my assigned pieces because they are all too much for me just to "pick up on the side." And I can't see that happening in the next few months so I'll have to sit this out.

Is this cross-posted to Pianists Corner? Likely that folks who hang around there are better able to pick up pieces like this quickly.

Nobody should even think of picking op. 85 no. 4 (Elegy), IT'S MINE laugh
(I've already lost op. 19 no. 6 because I decided to pick it up in my mind and AimeeO 'decided it loud' to take it laugh )
