excellent gandalf, I would invest in some rechargable aa's and a charger for same, it will pay for itself in the long run.

I was considering the zoom today as my canon fs100 just nearly died, well nearly its developed a strange problem and it doesnt do music well at all, in fact there are no settings for the audio that can be changed in any way.

Here is the weird canon problem that had to develop just now when I need it.

I plugged the charger in: no charge light on canon showed.
It also would not switch on.
I bought a new charger: no difference.

I need the mains charger to be plugged in to download or it doesnt do it.

So, I got a standalone battery charger and a card reader.

I now have to take the battery out to charge it, and then the std card out to plug it into a card reader to download it.

Not exactly satisfactory but a workable workaround for the problem it has mysteriously developed.

I was told the zooms are excellent and from members recordings here, they seem like the optimum choice for the money.

please let me know how you get on with it and how you find the audio settings if you get time.

Right okay dokey folks, I know that you all have , and all will probably be practicing up untill the last minute, ( I am so looking forward to my pm,s on the twentieoneth of April !!)

Seriously though, about the twentieoneth of april, if you can avoid leaving it to the very last minute, then please do.

Anyways, this is about something else that i would like your views and opinions/reasonable suggestions/sane ideas on.

There are forty eight songs without words, each opus has six, and six X eight = forty eight when I went to school.

However, if we say on average that each piece is 3 to 4 min long, then 48x 3 min would be one hundred and forty four mins long OR 2 hours twenty four mins in total.

If my maths is correct.

Now then, I thought and thought about the different ways of posting the recital up, and I COULD do it all in one go, so anyone could go and listen to 2 hours 24 mins of total mendelssohn.

However, that seems a tad hasty in the old "total" bit of "total mendelssohn" for 2hrs24.

So, alternatives where thought about and even oddball ones like "draw out of a hat" to decide the order of play.


But, the best Idea so far has been : do it by the book itself, by opus and opus no.


So, ( again) 6 in each opus, 8X6 = 48,

Therefore I wish to post them up as follows, 6 per day over the course of eight days, in opus no, as they appear in the book, devoid of any favouritism or anything else unruly.

As far as I can see, ( even with me glasses) that will give us time to take in and absorb each set of six with another six tommorrow and the next day for eight days to look forward to.

This would seem to logistically make sense and also not overdose us completely in one big go, it would be in effect "mendelssohn recital week" Except of course for it being a bit longer than a week, Okay then typical of us and RST; "Mendelssohn recital week and an bit"

Unless, the consensus is to post the whole recital up in one big two hr twentyfour minute chunk?

which i could do if enough folk tried to convince me to do with most excellent reasoning and logic of course.

As one who plans to listen, I rather like the idea of having small packages to manage rather than one big one.

It is a lot of listening and I think I'd be more inclined to savour the smaller batches. With a bigger batch I'd feel pressured to "get through them all".

Thank you Ganddalf and dire tonic for your generous offer to pick up LimeFriday's recital pieces!!! She is extremely relieved that you've offered to play them so the pieces won't be missing from the recital. smile

I think the Opus 102's got it lucky as they'll have an extra 7 days to get theirs to you. :P But I do like the idea of one opus per day.

In favour of opus book at a time, but would also suggest a random book order play list at the discretion of administration. So as to avoid ...

I like the idea of so many a day. It would be best to have a logical order.

Start in reverse order . . .

It's nice to know that it's not 15th as I was traveling this week. It's not fluent yet but I will deliver on time.

It's amazing how many strange things may happen as soon as the recorder is running. I regret that I didn't start recording the pieces for this recital already a long time ago. Firstly because this gives me the opportunity to spot the points with the greatest improvement potential and secondly because this would help getting rid of some of the "red dot anxiety".

I have recorded my four pieces now, and learnt a few lessons. Most important perhaps is the fact that the simpler pieces are just as difficult to make good recordings of as the harder pieces. Maybe the simple truth is that there is no such thing as a simple piano piece.

It is tempting as soon as a recording has been made to put the piece aside. In this case I plan not to do that. I'm convinced that there is still potential for improvement, and it can be quite interesting to see what can be done with the weak points with some additional practice time.

When I started making the first test recordings a week ago I needed the sheet music for all except the most difficult piece. During the recordings, however, I repeated the pieces so many times that now I need the sheet music only for the simplest one. This is a very great advantage, especially if you have to turn the leaf.

Many times during the recording process I had a strong feeling of incompetence and was quite frustrated. I consider the end result as "acceptable", but not more than that. Anyhow this is an amateur recital, and we should not use professional artistic level as a reference. Also it is not a competition, but sharing music that we enjoy working with.

You`re dead right man! I do that quite a lot. It doesn`t make for a big repertoire quickly, does it?

I contacted RagnhildK who is responsible for Op.19/2, and helped her with the recording of the piece. I'll take the responsibility of handling her music file. In other words, you can consider her contribution as checked in and it will be available on time.

I'm sorry that I have not been posting for a while, leaving some uncertainty about my participating in the Mendelssohn recital. Since my piano is seriously out of tune, I was very grateful to Ganddalf for giving me the chance to use his piano and his Zoom.
My opus 19/2 has lots of things that can be improved, but at this point this is the best I can do.
I'm really looking forward to hearing the complete recital :-)

When the songs are posted (in digestable chunks) can you leave the previous ones on and just . . .add to them? Otherwise I may not be able to hear the first day or so, I`ll be away!

Yes absolutely this is how i intended to do it:

day one first six opus numbers ( as printed in the book)
Day two will have the second six opus numbers,(plus the six from the day before and so on) etc etc.

They will be up FOREVER! well as long as PW exists as a forum, and I suppose that will depend on many things such as North Korea/USA/China/Russia not creating an imminent apocalypse
say for example.
