....and I thought we'd started something lol laugh


I participated in a Schumann Recital at PC way back in May of 2010 - and they were doing them before that, so it's been going on for awhile.

If we do go "joint" be prepared to be blown away by some seriously good pianists. A few today on the Mason & Hamlin tour pretty much intimidated me with how good they were. I should feel secure in my ability to just be where I am. But, I was stunned by how well some people could play.

I juuuust sent Opled Peter the link to my video. Had to spend like an hour choosing between various recordings, and settled for one with one obvious misplay, but a little better articulation overall. Have to leave the perfect recordings to the experts here smile

Re-installing Quicktime (I'd updated to Windows7) did the trick. Now, like Allard, I need to choose which version. I'm disappointed that they have glitches even with my diligent study. I think I have some kind of finger dyslexia (it happens when I type too) so that my brain signals to the fingers misfire. Ahhh well. I did enjoy learning them and someday I hope to enjoy performing them.

I turned in my two videos to the Opled's last night. It feels good to be done! My pieces are not perfect, but I am happy with how they turned out. I learned a lot from these two pieces.

I finally made friends with iMovie to add opening and closing pictures and titles. That was fun! I can't wait until the 15th to hear what everyone has done.

As far as combining the themed recitals with the members recordings in the Pianist's Corner, I think I would be seriously intimidated by that!

I too would be greatly intimidated by a joint recital with the PC group.

Which is strange perhaps, given that I'm not intimidated by the (significantly) better performers here in ABF. I think it is the tone of the forum and the strong community we've got going here - I feel inspired by ABFers!

Why does everyone isolate the "PC people" and the "ABF people"? Aren't you allowed to post in both? wink

By the way, this is as good a time as any to ask if the wink on PW really is a wink. It's never looked like one to me, and I've always used it to mean what it looks like - sort of a squint, to express skepticism or mild disapproval. wink

There I go again. laugh

I post in both, but I see a very different atmosphere on the two forums. I suspect a small minority of ABF people would find active participation at the PC to be their proverbial cup of tea.

The ABF is for people who are learning to play the piano and about music, going from those who are absolutely starting and up. Some of us may be more advanced in some areas, but have huge holes in others. Some of us have not have lessons, and others have had poor lessons in their past and have to undo the damage. In this forum we are trying to learn and to help each other learn.

PC is for those who generally have piano under their belt already. They are not primarily in learner-mode.

That's how I see it.

I'm still waiting to get a chance to get at the piano.

LOL, read that as "mascaraing", for which I'm not sure old Eddie would approve or forgive you. laugh

I also cleared my schedule tomorrow to do some recording. I have 2 out of 5 done, got a barely decent take of 71/5 Halling today, so I'm hoping tomorrow will mean I can get even better. Wrong notes will happen, I'm just hoping for no "stuttering" when they do so I can keep going.

Also did a few takes yesterday of Butterfly and I think I should get a good recording of this tomorrow, or at the very least this weekend.

Brooklet is starting to come together, but it's not going to be as polished as I would like (but then, neither is anything else!).

To all of you procrastinators: Now is our time to get 'er done! Then...
Cheers!

I "signed up" for 2, the last 3 were foisted upon me with such grace and politeness, I never realized what I was getting myself into. Brits and their wily ways! whistle

Dipsy really knows how to get her way.. I can attest to this!


Of course it doesn't help that you're so awesome at the last minute things, Erin.. I'm sure they will be fine!

As for me, I wound up with a decent-enough-for-me recording, unless you count the chorus of cicadas in the background.. (never fear Wayne! I am here to set the bar low for you LOL)

I think it will add to the ambience, especially if you listen to it in the dead of winter it will help remind you of summer days spent practicing the Grieg smile.

3 down 2 to go! I'm pretty sure I'll be able to get a good take on Butterfly today, but Brooklet will need 1 more day at least.

I am insane.

Had to google Theakston's...rated 89 out of 100. Not bad.

Alright, I have submitted everything but Brooklet 62/4. That one is presenting me with some problems that will probably take some more work today and most likely tomorrow as well.

Ah yes! Dipsy, you are one of the best volunteer recruiters I've met. I'll never forget how you so skillfully talked me into participating in the Satie recital when I had no intention of participating. The next thing I knew I was performing Gymnopedie 1. laugh

I'm looking forward to hearing the Grieg recital.
