Thanks wayne - you're a star!

PS If I'd listened to the new link sample of my piece, I think I'd have been scared off!

And I agree that it is taken at a really fast pace.

We are, of course, delighted to have you, Mr Pozor, but in the "Next Themed Recital" thread I suggested we hold back on taking second choices until everyone's had a chance to pick something. Since no-one responded negatively I believe this stands by tacit consent.

If we wait until November 15 it still leaves five months to practise a piece and if we leave it to December 1 it still leaves plenty of time and allows better uptake from people who may be away on holiday. Piano*Dad and Carey spring to mind as participants in the Grosse Grieg Gala who may not yet have seen this new Tchaikovsky Extravaganza.

I do not see a need to have every piece taken - this is a long list and time will need to be made in April just to listen. There are already nearly thirty participants and the list has only been up for three days.

My own thoughts would be to open the list on December 1, to anyone who feels the need to do more with a reasonable limit of, say, one more piece per week for anyone picking extras. There are enough recitals around presently to fill most people's time and another may be forthcoming before this one goes ahead.

If it transpires that more rules need to be made then we need to have someone devoting time to ensuring fairness. At the moment I only see the need to keep the list in easy-to-read shape and make sure previous names aren't accidentally knocked off (thanks, Sam).

Does anyone want to offer an alternative approach before this gets written into the latest list?

We still have to decide how to organise this before April and find a means of ensuring that those who've picked a piece are still around and preparing it about a month or so before the go live date. This sort of problem caused much consternation in the Grieg recital though there every piece was due to published and in opus order. Such is not the case here and the regular recital software may finally be employed for this event.

Thoughts?

I think what you suggest, Richard, is very sensible. December gives people who want to pick up a second piece time to learn it. Using the existing recital software would be nice. People are somewhat more familiar with it than making videos and posting on YouTube. But after the Grieg recital some of us are experts!!
I, personally freak at the thought of videos even though I did manage. A simple MP3 is more my speed.

I don't know what the regular recital software thing is all about, but whatever is easiest for everyone. As for accountability/gentle encouragement/harassment wink I think that having the Opus leaders (opleds) was a great idea. In this case some opuses are quite small so perhaps it can be organized with one person taking on two or three of the smaller ones, and one or two people for the larger opera.

The regular ABF quarterly recital software due to be rolled again any moment now, I believe.

You may not be familiar with it yourself, Erin, but most of us have some experience with it and it's not hard to deal with.

This recital is intended to be more self-running and is not to offer all of Mr. T's keyboard output. It's just a piece (or two) each. There are easy pieces in Opp. 39 & 40 to encourage new participants who've been overwhelmed by the Mendelssohn and Grieg recitals and there are more challenging pieces for those more experienced. The sonatas and other minor pieces have been removed from the list - they are not necessarily excluded but are rather long for the poor listener.

If the self-service style proves unsatisfactory we may resort to a team of elves (or one poor wretch/autocrat) later on.

Morodiene - the regular quarterly recital opens for submissions tomorrow. One of our ABFers wrote the software to make the administration of the submission and posting easier for the the admin (Monica, at the minute). You can look thru the submission process but not actually submit if you want, and you'll see how it works.

The pieces are then posted first submitted - to - last - submitted, on the day the recital opens.

The pieces in Opus 39 (Album for the Very Young) can be found nearly sequentially at this Youtube link and you can click on the time-mark of the piece that you want to listen to. There are still several delightful and unclaimed pieces in Opus 39, which is a good place for beginner-intermediate players like me.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyFg5HMZKRw

If you are a beginner-intermediate who is lurking and thinking about playing something, try one of the following:

The Doll's Funeral - Stately and elegant. [Edit - Ah! Picked up by MrPozor! Nick pick!]
Russian Song - Easy and charming.
German Song - has a dainty melody and moves along nicely. Seems like it would be fun to play!
The Organ Grinder's Song - Charming and delightful. Has a wonderful counterpoint line in the B section.

I am an early intermediate and I have already played through the At Church piece (No 23) which I signed up for. I can tell that will be in good shape in a month or two. So another piece may be possible for me. [But that Joplin piece is challenging.]

FYI and I'm sure most of you know, Tchaikovsky's works can be downloaded at IMSLP:

http://imslp.org/wiki/Category:Tchaikovsky,_Pyotr

Best wishes all.

I thought second choices were ok, as long as indicated 'somehow' that they were seconds/thirds etc. Thus any, 'overightable' with first choices. I must have missed the post with deadline dates, removal of peices, recital software etc. I'll have to look over past posts so I know what the sitch is wink ..............no good being a part-timer round these parts lol <3

Ya, I think something was said about putting the selection in italics or something to indicate it's a 2nd choice and thus still available for someone who wants it. I just took my name off because I know who sometimes people won't want to take it away from you even if you say it's OK ...but seriously, no one take the rest of OP 2... I mean...um...have at it! laugh

Ok here goes, Op 39 No 17 German Song. I printed the sheets for it and dabbled a bit last night. Definitely hard but there are months, I feel like I could do this if I put in the effort. What are the repercussions for failing? (If you think this is impossible for a beginner who has recently finished Alfred's 1 please chime in; I don't want to deny other people of a piece.)

I listened to the German Song again and I think it is very approachable by a motivated beginner. Give it two or three weeks and see how you're doing. I bet by that time you will have made it through the entire piece. If there is a lot of repetition in the piece, you may even memorize it by then. And you will have all those months to put it together, bring it up to speed, and play with gusto!

There are literally no repercussions for failing. It's just a nice way for us to challenge ourselves and keep things fresh... It's a big help if you enjoy the piece itself.

Anyway, my 2 cents.

Sorry, I did not know that second choices should be avoided for the moment. I think it makes sense as the priority should be to have a maximum of people joining the recital. I have removed my option from "The Doll's Funeral".
I hope the Mazurka is not too difficult for me (1 year of piano experience). I'll run it past my teacher. Would the Waltz of the same opus be easier?

Opus 39, the Album for the Young, was intended to match Schumann's Opus 68 of the same name. It is aimed at beginners and the pieces are rated from ABRSM Grade 1 to Grade 4. If performance and interpretation are taken into account some may reach Grade 5. There are no finger twisters here, no great leaps or stretches, no weak finger trills and nothing that can't be mastered by April if approached sensibly and carefully.

The Opus 40 pieces were intended for 'moderate' players. They are typically between Grade 4 and Grade 6. A match, it seems, for the later pieces in Schumann's Album for the Young.

The rest of his output wasn't written with ability in mind. The Seasons, Op. 37, are fairly uniformly Grade 7 with January, March, May, June and October on the easier side and August may be Grade 8.

None of his other opuses have 'easy' pieces though I'm unfamiliar with his Op. 72 apart from the pleasant Meditation, No. 5. (I think No. 1 should just be Impromptu. Viktoria Postnikova, like Mikhail Pletnev, was a pupil of Yakov Flier at the Moscow Conservatory but I'm unaware of any stronger links to Tchaikovsky.)

He writes with a lot of counterpoint and that makes much of his keyboard output slightly more demanding.

Success or failure is a concept for you to do battle with. All that matters here is participation and an honest attempt. It's not a competition nor a comparison. There are no entry requirements. It's an excuse to push yourself a little further than you might otherwise go and to focus more clearly on what you're doing. It should benefit your own practise and ability. Most of us enjoy hearing other players, no matter their level, as it's always worth hearing different interpretations.

There is a time constraint, though not small, and that affects some more than others. Still, it's not where you are on the day that matters but how it helps you in your own practise up till then.

It's great to see new names appearing!

I think most people who participated in past themed recitals really felt like they stretched themselves and learned a lot from that, even if it wasn't pulled off perfectly, and I think that has true value here. I really loved listening to everyone because we were kind of there for one another through the process, so it was great to hear people overcome their challenges. I wouldn't feel self-conscious or under pressure to be perfect.

One thing I noticed is that from learning more than one piece by a composer, you really get to understand what he does. This helps you better interpret the pieces, so it's great there are so many, but I do hope that people are able to select more than one for this purpose.

I suspect that there may be quite a few very difficult pieces left when we get the opportunity to make a second choice. The Op.21 pieces all seem pretty challenging, and they are also quite long, meanig that learning them will take a lot of effort. Opuses 4, 7 and 8 are also generally difficult.
I'm ready to take the challenge of learning one of these pieces in addition to my first choice. However, I hope that I'll not have to wait too long before reserving the piece and getting started studying it.

I think I'll just go ahead and learn all the Op. 2 anyways, because it was intended to be performed as a cycle. Hopefully I'll get to play them all for this recital, but no biggie if not.

I listened to the Op. 21 but I didn't really find them as interesting for some reason. The Op. 2 stuff had a bit more "Russian" sound to it which I love. Of course, the Op. 12 pieces are great too and I'd say more difficult in general.

Well spotted! I saw that after I`d written it . . . .she`s good isn`t she? She`s my new teacher . . . .
