Comments?

https://www.dropbox.com/s/vryibuz779fuwwi/Vanished%20Days.mp3?m

I don't really know how to upload files yet, so I am using my Dropbox user account. Youtube doesn't seem to like "audio only" files.


Super! Quite a challenging piece! A lot of time went into that. I would imagine you are reading and playing? You put a lot of dynamics into it and your piano held up nicely as well.

I uploaded a trial video of my piece to Youtube today. I used Windows Movie Maker and it would be very easy for you to put add a couple of pics and turn your piece into a slideshow. I used, I think, 9 pics for a 1:40 piece.

Thanks for your comments, yes, I was going through the PDF sheets from my iPad. I first heard about Vanished Days while browsing through one of the exam syllabuses of either the RCM or the London College, can't remember now. Then I heard a recording of this piece (youtube) from someone who joined the Grieg's Piano Competition and I was hooked since. I just had to learn this up.

Anyway, it was just a trial recording and perhaps when the due date comes I hope to make less mistakes while playing this piece. Er, is there a due date for the recitals?

As a second thought, I am also learning the "Wedding Day at Troldhaugen" and I find it much more difficult to play than this one.

I think we're supposed to be ready by Sept 15. I think one opus is going to be published (by the moderator for each opus), starting with Opus 12.

My work is op 12 no 8 and we are planning to have our videos all done and submitted well before the 15th.

Renjer, welcome! The way the themed recitals work is that at the beginning of the organizational process, back when this thread started, people pick which piece they'd like to play, one person per piece. People then submit YouTube videos of their playing to the organizers, and the videos are published in order when the performance of the recital opens, which will be Sept. 15. The list of performers and pieces is filled out already now. So unfortunately your recording won't be part of the official themed recital. We're delighted to hear it though. Consider posting it to the September Piano Bar. There are also quarterly recitals on your choice of piece -- submissions for the next Quarterly recital open on Nov. 1 and run to Nov. 14. Also keep watching ABF for an announcement of the next themed recital. Hope you'll be a part of it!

AZ_Astro, we're asking for submissions by Sept. 10. That gives the organizers time to put the threads together before the recital opens on Sept. 15, and also time to deal with any last minute problems.

@Pianostudent88: That's ok then, I wasn't aware that all Grieg's Lyric Pieces were already taken. Has the Sonata in E Minor been taken yet? I'm interested in the Andante Molto section because I vaguely remember this piece having appeared in the exams some years back.

Unfortunately in November I will be having guests in my house for quite some time so I can't really play the piano. Perhaps I will have to wait for the next one (February 2014, perhaps?)

I noticed there was an Alkan recital as well on the Pianist forum, however, I don't think my piece is up to an acceptable standard yet.

Renjer, yes, the next Quarterly recital after November is February.

For this themed recital, we're only playing Grieg's Lyric Pieces. You could record the Sonata for the Piano Bar, or record it early and submit it to the November recital (or later). There's also the Ecco Fatto thread for submitting your first PW recording, if you wish. (Ecco Fatto = Italian for "There! It's done!")

You can also always just make a thread and post a piece for feedback or just to share.

There will be another themed recital coming up, but the theme and timing have not yet been decided. Look for information on that sometime after the Grieg recital finishes being posted (we'll have one opus per day starting Sept. 15, so finishing up on Sept. 24).

Can we do Schumann next time? Lots of pieces that are playable by intermediates.

Or Bartok - he gets no love in the ABF recitals. But the Mikrokosmos have something for all skill levels. I don't know why they aren't more popular.

Or we could make the New Age fans happy and have an all New Age recital wink Oh no, Einaudi!

Hey, hey, hey, now! I haven't even begun to record my Grieg pieces, so let's hold off on discussing what's next until we're done with what's now! smile

Oh dear, I was counting on the 15th. I didn't see about the 10th. I've been working round the clock on a project that came up and don't know how fast I'll be finished. Before the 10th might happen, but what if I cant make it that soon?

If I can't get a recording in, then I won't sound like anything. That's what I mean. I blithely thought the date was the 15th. I actually expected to be early until this came up.

keystring, contact your opus leader and check that they could accept the piece after the 10th and still put together their thread.

I'm kind of feeling under the gun as you are. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to have French Serenade 62/3, From the Early Years 65/1, and Halling 71/5 recorded this weekend.

The two new pieces, Butterfly 43/1 and Brooklet 62/4, however, could really use more work given the short time allowed to work on it. So I'm hoping for some mercy from the respective OPleds wink .

From what I heard of your playing if your piece, keystring, it is in fine condition, so then the real concern is just when you'd get a chance to record it. I'm sure they'll be able to make an exception for you if need be.

Consider it done, young lady! 43-1 has to be in the hands of the Chief Whip by the 17th. If you get it to me for the 15th I should be OK . . (Famous last words) grin

Sent in my third of 3 this morning, so I am done. None of them are without mistakes, so the rest of you stop being such perfectionists...

My piece is definitely getting there.

I recorded it for the heck of it last night -I knew it wouldn't be awesome quality, since BillyO was playing his Telecaster through the Marshall, but naturally I got a great take, with just enough buzz to be annoying.

So I tried again a little while ago, and got decent takes - with very loud cicadas buzzing in the background. (Bill measured the sound recently - 80 decibels!)

So hopefully, later tonight, I will get the take I want, if the universe decides to take a nap smile It's by no means perfect (it's sooo hard to keep the melody loud and the rest quiet), but I'm pretty pleased with what I've done.

Make a separate video for each piece. Then upload them to your YouTube channel. Then send the separate links to each video to the appropriat Opled.

Also send in a brief blub about each piece to the Opled. It can be what was diffiult, what you learned, anything that you have to say about the experience of learning the piece.

Hello Carey; I just need your Youtube link and accompanying notes you may have on your music!. Send it to me on a "personal message" (Opus 43 6) and I`ll sort it . .
