One doesn't have to listen to every piece in the recital. In fact, I doubt many people do.

One does not need to record every movement of a suite in one sitting, either.

Maybe, since they all seem to be longer than recitals, we should start calling these events "e-festivals" or "e-marathons" instead of "e-citals". Or maybe some kind of new word like "e-musathon".

Yay! Will the music be presented chronologically? It might be cool to hear the Couperin alongside the Tombeau de Couperin (but then anyone could listen to that if they wished after everything's posted).

I have been thinking about this for a while. In fact, I think it will be a better idea to make a series of "recitals" where each of them contain a combination of older and newer music. For instance Couperin and Tombeau de Couperin (maybe together with another suite to get a "programme" with a duration of one to one and a half hour).

I suggest that we discuss this in detail when we have the total overview of the suites reserved.

I think the recital could simply be presented as a list of entries, and people could pick and choose what to listen to and when.

This option is also possible, of course.

The present status is that we have 12 composers and 24 suites on the list. This is quite good, but we will, of course, continue accepting new participants and pieces.

We don't have any of Bach's English suites represented yet. I also greatly recommend French suite no 5 and 6.

Other significant suites that are not taken yet?

Bartok's Petite Suite would be a good choice and not overly difficult for someone who understands his idiom. Roussel and Enescu wrote some big and imposing suites. The Schoenberg is a great piece, but I don't expect anyone to play it. That one's strictly for a top-tier virtuoso.

I started working on the Holberg Suite. It is absolutely perfect for the Chickering at my church. I just play the notes and all these glorious sounds come out.

As you may see Children's Corner has now been claimed.

I just checked out Enescu's suites. He wrote three of them. The first one (Op.3) is in "ancient" or Bach style. From my first impression I would rather play a Bach suite than this one.
The two later ones (Op.10 and Op.18) were much more interesting. Great music to listen to, but both seem pretty challenging technically.

I am still going through several of them. I think that Ippolitov-Ivanov's Caucasian Sketches are beyond me, but someone wanting to fill in the alphabet might claim them. I just want to point out that there are several suites which are better known as orchestral works that are also available for piano, which might have been the way they were written originally. Stravinsky recounts that Rimsky-Korsakov noted that some people write on the piano first and orchestrate later, as Stravinsky did, and that there was nothing wrong with that.

Morodiene, was that an offer from you to play it? Or were you just asking if it will work? Because if not, then I'd like to take it! But Morodiene mentioned it first.
