ElleC - your prelude in C was wonderful, full of the dynamics I would like to put into my version. Only playing since January and then being able to perform this give yourself a pat on the back.
I agree it is difficult to know the speed at which to play as it seems to take on new character in both slow and faster tempo's.

Hi all,
Once again i could not master the technical requirement to post it to the recital. Also something happended to my zoom - it seems to be skipping and having some syncronization issue. Also I am singing with it once again (LOL) and overall not so hot performance. I need to improve this before I go to Summerkey in August.

Thank you! I just listened to yours in ABF recital...you did a good job! You ought to be proud of yourself. Quite honestly, I started to play it 2 months into learning the piano. Gave it up for a bit cause for some reason it just never sounded good on my digital. Then I picked it up again 2 weeks ago and had my teacher brush over stuff with me. Playing this piece on acoustic was more fun for sure.

Thanks.

As I don't read music I'm not sure if what I have is 'easy piano'. I'll PM you.

Mine needs some vocals, wish I could sing. I drifted off for the ending (sorry for the poor video quality). I hope everyone is having a great spring, or fall if you are in the southern hemisphere. My May contribution:

Hello Codi - Sounds like a Lennon song. I foind poplar music harder to play than many classics; too many inflections in the vocals which are all written down! You played confidently; fair laid into this with gusto and a bit of aggression . . . !Too much fun, lass!

I have gotten behind on the Piano Bar, keeping up with the recital, and I was away for a week in Spain. (It rained there, too.) Oh well.

Inlanding/Glen - I loved the pensive, relaxed quality of your composition. Very nice!

Newman - Excellent presentation of this Lennon/McCartney classic. You have a very expressive voice, and the accompaniment was nicely minimized to let the vocal shine. Nice job!

ElleC - You did a nice job on the prelude in C. The movement between hands was seamless.

FarmGirl - Beautiful job on the Fugue. The voices were very clear and balanced. I sorry you couldn't get in the recital due to your recording problems, and I am glad you decided to share the piece here!

Mattriolanh - Very nice playing. The rhythm was nice and steady.

Elssa - Your playing is wonderful, as always. This had a nice wistful character to it. I really enjoyed it.

Codi - Nice arrangement of this beatles classic. Well played.

Allard - Beautiful Einaudi interpretation and you played it well. Your piano has a lovely tone.

Thanks, Peter.. Runs are such fun to play - and teach (www.LearnPianoWithElssa.com). smile Your "Eleanor Rigby" was just brilliant! Wonderful arrangement and improv. Did you play/arrange that by ear?

Here's another one that Andy Williams recorded:

Speak Softly Love (Godfather Theme)

Mattroilanh – is that a children’s tune of some sort?
Elssa - swirling into our consciousness again – I love those tunes.
Codi – an interesting choice and pretty difficult (from my pov). You are progressing amazingly
Allard – they are very moody those pieces aren’t they? Well played.

It is a folk song. The lyric by Thomas Haynes Bayly is quite mature ^^ You can find the lyric here .

Elssa, every tune I get me grubby mitts on gets "doctored" in some way . . . No point in buying music just to hack it to pieces . . . wink

Nice performance again Allard. Not familiar with Einaudi's works at all but this sounds hauntingly beautiful. I like the way your hands move over the keys (also in Cristofori's Dream)...adds so much drama and flow.

Farmgirl that was wonderful! When i saw Christopher O'riley perform his transcriptions of listz...i noticed him singing (or mouthing something) a lot while playing. So it must be a good pianist thing? wink

Before the month is over...here's one last contribution for the month of May. It's my 3rd week in to this piece so there's still quite a lot of improvement to work on especially on the 2nd part of the song and not to mention the incredibly fast tempo that I probably will never be able to do. Though I must say that I like this song much slower than the suggested tempo.

Here's my (working) version of Burgmuller Op. 100, No. 7 - Clear Stream
