Give it a whirl, and let us know that you want it!

Recorded pieces are due September 10, but Opus 57 won't be posted until September 20, so a little negotiation with the opus leader (that's me) would win you an extension past the 10th. That gives you more than a month to learn this little gem.

Vote early, vote often, and don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity!


Well, since I have already sent both my pieces in, and the ABF quarterly recital is over, I'll take it on - it will be a good challenge for me, one I hope I won't regret.

It's ABA form again, and there is a good amount of repetition in each section. The faster middle section is the challenge, with 4 sharps and lots of accidentals. But the A section is typical Grieg and very lovely.

Many thanks Sam!

thumb yippie


Before, we had a full set, but that included understudies who would step in if need be. Now we should know who is doing each piece.

I feel another list coming on.... must chat to opleds...

Ok, so the definitive list should be coming up soon?

No changes to report in Opus 12 - we're all good to go and getting closer to that "perfect" (ha ha) recording.

Time to make my video... I could just add bell images to my recording, but it would be a pity not to see me playing grin

Oh, and are we supposed to write down something about our piece?

Sinophilia - its not compulsory to write down something, but last time (for the Mendelssohn recital) it was a nice touch to read personal statements. It can give listeners a feel for the person behind the performance, and where they were 'at.' But these statements shouldn't be too long - perhaps up to 3 paragraphs or so, because there will be many of them!

Some wrote about their interpretation of the piece, while others wrote about issues/frustrations/insights developed during the process of preparing the piece - their learning 'journey'. Its up to the individual.

I know that the Op. 12 crowd is planning to write individual introductory stories.

And I know one member of the Op.12 crowd who has already written and submitted his smile

Are there any unclaimed pieces? I have one, but I could probably take another if needed.

LadyChen, all pieces are currently taken. Are you eager to find another of the Lyric pieces to play or simply offering to ease the burden on those of us who might be starting to feel over-stretched?

I ask because some of us have taken on three, four or even five pieces, and I think your answer might determine the response....

I would be happy if you would take the french serenade (op. 62 no 3) or / and grandmothers menuet op (68 no2).

The last one I have almost finished, the first one is half finished but three days ago my mother unexpectedly came to hospital and she struggles with death.
Since then I stopped playing- I try it every evening but I can't concentrate.

If no one take my pieces I will make a record anyway, because I don't want to let anyone down and I don't want to be the only person whose pieces are missing. I am new to this forum and this would be a worse start so I will try my best.
But I would be very grateful if you take one or both pieces.

Yester, that's terrible news. You must take whatever time you need for yourself and your mother.

Let's see if LadyChen can help...

Yester, I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. Please don't stress about the recital -- of course we understand that this is not the time for you to be thinking about Grieg.

I've been working on "Heimwarts," and it's about ready. Should I submit, or is this recital over?

I didn't want your post to get lost - this thread is pretty active!

Were you subbing for RagnHild? I know they were one of the people who was MIA and had signed up to do that piece. I believe you submit your pieces to the person in charge of your opus number, but I can't find who does Op.57. I'm sure they will get in touch with you to let you know the procedure.

Just to save time - I checked in my book and it would be "Homeward" Op 62 n6. My list shows Diretonic was down for that one.

That's right!

I started out with it then after a couple of changes of heart - and at the point when we could go for two pieces max - chose 57,1 Vanished days and 68,3 At your Feet.

Set free for takers, I think Morodiene then picked up Homeward as an overflow piece.

In case you have been wondering about whether we will manage to cover everything - worry not because the opleds have come up with a plan...

With a bit of sidestepping to allow hawgrinder to participate, and if Lady Chen can be persuaded to do Yester's other piece, (she offered to help yesterday) then we should still have everything covered. So fingers crossed.

And in case that plan can't be done, there is another possibility...

We'll keep you posted and once all the dust has settled there will be a definitive list.- for my sake, as much as anything else. Its hard to keep track of it all sometimes!
