Elssa - great tune. I love your choices
Saranoya – Good work
Inlanding - You sound even better than usual in a trio context. Nicely done.
Eyal Madrid – I know I can be guilty of it – playing too fast. But I think both of these would benefit from letting the melodies breathe.

Gettin' close to July!

Is it last call at the bar yet? If I may play something before the bar closes...

Here is the Scott Joplin / Louis Chauvin rag, "Heliotrope Bouquet". It's one of my favorites and while I know I may run the risk of blasphemy here, it features the more Chopin-esque side of ragtime.



Edit: Oh, and that's Mabel, all recovered!

Glad to see she's recovered nicely.

Great job on the heliotrope and such a lovely tempo. Most Joplin rags were written for dance and I always chuckle when I try to imagine people dancing to some of the more fast/robust interpretations of them. I really enjoyed this piece. smile

Whizbang _ I enjoyed that. Being slower than those pieces usually are allowed me to better hear the tune. Nice.

Inlanding - I'm assuming this is a virtual accompaniment to your outstanding piano playing on Angel Eyes. This was the perfect start to my Saturday morning - upbeat, cool, and energizing. Thanks!

Whizbang - I'm with Newman on this one. I like your choice of tempo. It makes it sound more romantic than jaunty. Your piano's tone is perfect for this piece. Really well done!

Thanks. It was a definite "background music" type of deal, so I didn't mind a lack of applause.

It was educational, actually, because although it felt as if no one was even hearing me, people came up afterwards to say that they enjoyed it. Lesson learned: "Don't worry if it seems that no one notices your playing."

I haven't had anything to contribute to this months' bar, but there has been a lot of great stuff.

ladypayne, The Prayer - nice start to the month's piano bar

Rickster, Country Roads - this is so upbeat

Riddler, Blues in the Night - nice blusey take

BillM, Cheek to Cheek - great job one again!

Newman, Strawberry Fields Forever - you really captured the feel of this.

ElleC, Chopin Prelude in Eminor Op 28., No.4 - great job on your first Chopin. Very tasteful tempo and dynamics.

mattroilianh_tt, Theme from "Love Story" v1 & 2 - nice playing on both versions. I think my favourite is v1.

Amaruk, Adagio in D minor - as always, superb video and professional playing

peterws, Gymnopedie 1 - well done, but I'd like to hear a toppling over version wink

ladypayne/augustina, Beauty and the Beast - you two play well together, very coordinated.

jazzwee, Joy Spring - not bad indeed. It doesn't sound unrehearsed

Gandalf, Nimrod - I enjoyed this a lot, though it took a bit of effort to play it on my linux system.

JimF, Chopin Sonata no 2 excerpt - I think you caught the mood.

Riddler, Nimrod - another enjoyable performance subtly different

Weiyan, Bach WTC prelude no 1 - great progress, this performance has a lot more expression than I remember from your previous one.


Inlanding
Some Type of Blues - makes me think of Ray Charles for some reason
Soundscape - I like this too, atmospheric

jfmartins, Brahms Waltz - welcome to Piano World, I really like that waltz

SwissMS, Spinning Song - nice, very light and cheerful

Elssa, Moon River - this one really fits your style

raikkU, Minuet in G - you played this great.

floydthebarber, Chopin Nocturne 9/1 - I looked at the score, those odd tuples of 11, 22, etc. are scary. Well done. I look forward to the complete piece.

Augustina, The North Sea - I couldn't tell it was supposed to be faster. It doesn't drag at all. I like this piece.

Elssa, Liebestraum - well done.

BillM, People Will Say We're in Love - very sensitive performance

jfmartins, Brahms Op 39 No 15 - I like this one even more

mattroilanh_tt, Fur Elise part 1 - good start on this piece. The mirror iamge video threw me for a loop though.

peterws, Let it Be DGX630 - Wow, nice take on this.

Newman, I'm not in Love - great job, you captured the feel of the original very well.

Elssa, Stormy Weather - you have the touch for these great old tunes.


Saranoya, Bach Little Prelude in Dm - I don't think you play this too romantically at all. I really like the rhythm of this piece. I is one of my favourites of this set.

Inlanding, Angel Eyes - I like that.

eyal madrid, We Are Young, Hallelujah - well played. Welcome to the piano bar.

TromboneAl, Blue Monk - a nice treat
Georgia - mellow
Take The A Train - great energy

Whizbang, Heliotrope Bouquet - you've got the touch for these rags.
