Hello,

I'm posting this in case you haven't seen this yet.

I've launched a small initiative to bring some new music in pianoworld. In monthly instalments, in a form of a thread. There's no limit to what we post, if it's a recording or a score (or both), and how long the pieces can be. It can be a sonata, or a symphonic work, or just a lullaby, or a miniature (as in my case).

Go one it's over here: http://www.pianoworld.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/1993435.html#Post1993435

There's already 3 recordings and 2 scores in there for you to pick, print, listen and comment. We are all very eager to get some attention and comments from pianists (since we, the composers are quite autistic about what we do in general... At least I know that I, personally, am).

I'm sure that (as a teacher now) I can use both scores with my students. Especially for Steve's work (an extremely dark and tragic Elegy) I have to warn my students prior to playing it to them, but I think it'll work fine! wink

I think I sort of understand what you are doing, but I have a question: if I wanted to post something in the Composers Lounge, how do I know whether it should be part of your monthly thread or just a regular post? Not that I have anything to post right now, but who knows, maybe I'll slap a few amateur notes together sometime and decide to inflict them upon PW.

No idea really... And it's an interesting question to be honest that I hadn't thought about.

My guess is that larger works, or works that need their own focus (a full size piano concerto for example) deserve a separate thread, while anything else could go in there. It's not something I want to force onto people or anything... This shouldn't take away from the value of any work posted in the thread. That's not the point.

But it IS an interesting question and I'm not quite sure of what the appropriate answer is. After all I'm not a mod or anything, just had this idea kick in and got it going...
