It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
I'm quite grateful to join in the Bach 'n all a 'ya celebration, even if we do not ascend higher than the foot of the fugal mountain. I hope we get a full 15+++ (or 115!) minutes of Polyphonist though (is this his first PW recital?) Chorales, Bach's and Polyphonist's, a Polyphonist Fugue (?), the Polyphonist BWV 553 organ-piano transcription , Schumann, (Chopin??, Rachmaninoff??) I would rather hear 30min of Poly than 1min of me. I vote for at least a 2-slot Special Dispensation.

"I will hear in Heaven." Beethoven
Aaah can I "perhaps" participate? I want to add this piece, but I have to polish the Ravel sonatine for a masterclass in the "near future"( actual words from this teacher, I don't know exactly when it'll be ). But maybe you guys can give me your opinion if the piece 'fits', otherwise I don't even bother trying to finish it in time and just focus on the Ravel and my other repertoire. It's a brazilian piece, very polyphonic. Full of inner voices. It's a Ponteio (prelude) by a brazilian composer, Mozart Guarnieri.
I don't really like this recording, but it's the only one on youtube.

Hi Francisco, This particular program is full now, but you could always post in the Member Recording section and get some good feedback. Assuming all goes well with this recital I plan to host another in September and you'd be more than welcome then. I look forward to hearing you play!
Hey, would you be so kind as to substitute the Hamelin prelude and fugue for the Op. 8 No.2 and 12 Scriabin Etudes. I decided I didn't want to torture myself for a month and a half to torture listeners with an inevitably inadequate performance.
Vid I'm sure it will be a lot of fun :P After learning the one in F major, I still play it once a day, trying to change dynamics and phrasing. It's unbelievable how many combinations you can get, and it really forces you to keep trying! But still, I'm never completely satisfied with any one version. I think every time these are performed, there is a sort of improvisatory feel, at least for me :P Have fun with them

An updated possible program order. Also, if you have any "maybe" or "TBD" left in your entries, it's time to come to a decision.
Fugal/contrapuntal music is the frame and thread running through the recital. Pieces have been grouped together so that there will be a few different episodes in the recital. (If I messed up anyone's repertoire please let me know.)
------------------------------- [Dance group] Bach: French Suite no. 4 (Pover) Gibbons: pavane, allemande, courante (FSO) Stanchinsky: mazurka and maybe variations (FSO)
[Chopin group, leading with pieces that have 'hidden' counterpoint in the accompaniment] Chopin: Prelude Op. 45 (MikeN) Chopin: Nocturne Op 62 no 2 (ec) Chopin: Mazurka Op 41 no 1 (ec) Chopin: Etude Op 10 no 4 (doctor S) Chopin/Godowsky: Etude Op 10 no 6 (MikeN)
[Late Romantic/early 20th c. music that looks back on earlier styles] Ravel: Prelude and fugue from Tombeau de Couperin (Tim) Ponce: prelude and fugue (doctor S) Rachmaninoff: Prelude Op 23 no 5 (Vid) Schumann: a fugue TBD (Polyphonist) Scriabin: Etudes Op 8 no. 2 and 12 (MikeN)
[And returning home to Bach] Bach: Two-part inventions no. 1 and 2 (Vid) Bach: Contrapunctus no. 1 from Art of Fugue (FSO) --------------------------------------------------
Hi, Heather -- just a quick note to say that I very much like your choice of groupings and order of presentation. The Schoenfield Intermezzi are indeed introspective and meditative, and the Ravel is of course a modern evocation of the 17th century piano suites. Thanks for the update; will send recordings to you via PM, probably by the 21st.

I'm at a piano camp, and will be trying to put together a decent recording today/tomorrow. I PMd Heather about this but haven't heard back yet--does anyone know whether an iPad video recording will work???

Well really, who would object to Reger Hearing no objections sounds like Reger is just fine. I can receive just about any file format, but it does need to be a downloadable file (not youtube or other streaming format). I will then combine the files and upload to soundcloud.
