Glad to hear you liked it.
I agree, it's fantastic!

We have a really talented group here, and I'm very proud of our CD (I had a smile from ear to ear while I was listening to it).

My hats off to all the talented people who contributed and worked on the CD production.

I want to buy that CD but i cannot fill in correctly the blanks where my address is concern. It does not give me the option to put in Malaysia..... Can someone help me out on this one?

I heard some of the clips and they are very nice! Congratulations.

Just received my complimentary copy. I'm so impressed with the quality of the product -- it could be on the shelves at Borders or Barnes and Noble.

All of those who made the production of this CD possible (Axtremus and company) deserve a lot of credit and should feel very proud of their accomplishment.

I'll have to order some for friends and family. The CDs will make great gifts.

Ain't got mine yet! .sniff.

I think I was one of the first orders, but since I just moved, I'll bet it's stuck in the postal systems "Someday we should forward this mail. But really, no need to rush or anything." bin.

Thank you Bernard!

Your performance of the Brahms Intermezzo is very nicely played. It is very relaxing to listen to.

I have not heard anything that I do not like on this CD!

And I am very picky! \:D

I just received mine today. Very nice compilation of music. Congratulations to all those that made this CD possible. Any plans for a holiday CD??? That would be wonderful, too...

I also received my music ribbon, and it won't stick to the back of my car! Now, I am wondering what my car is made of? I stuck it on the side...still looks good.

Re: PWPF Piano Solo CD (2 CD set) Now Available! - 06/30/05 01:29 PM

If there was a holiday CD (short notice probably), I would record something fresh for it.

My problem is similar to Victor Kam's, I can't get the order form to accept Canadian postal code.

Re: PWPF Piano Solo CD (2 CD set) Now Available! - 06/30/05 09:30 PM

I just got mine.
What a wonderful project.
Everyone played so beautifully.
I have several special mentions, but I don't want to leave anyone out.

It was also very interesting to hear the different pianos and recording techniques back to back on one CD.

Wow there are some really great players here.
I am honored to be on it.

Thanks so much to Frank, Ax and everyone who played, contributed to the production, and bought it!

Hi Wxaupe,

We usually ship priority mail, but Canadian orders have to ship global priority (a different rate).
Email me webmaster@pianoworld.com your information and I'll let you know what the costs are.

I just bought the CD but it only gave me one shipping option (West). I am not sure what this means. I was thinking West Coast but I live on the east coast. Am I gonna have any shipping problems?

No, you won't have any shipping problems, it's just the way I happen to code some of the states in our store.

Hi Guys,

I've mailed Mr. Webmaster regarding shipping costs to Europe but I haven't not heard anything back after 5 days or so.

Have any European PianoWorld members bought the CD yet? How did you go about ordering?

Thanks,

Rob.

Re: PWPF Piano Solo CD (2 CD set) Now Available! - 09/07/05 05:35 AM

Hi Guys,

Got my CD there a few days ago and I'm impressively impressed. I hope this isn't the last Piano World CD.

Ted .. !! I really enjoyed all your tunes. I haven't picked a favourite but I found "The Blues Boncus Drag" intriguing. I couldn't quite draw a character of your son in my head but maybe a few more listens would help cement something in place. A very fun listen, nonetheless.

I hope the project was a success for everyone who helped produce the CD ... i.e. I hope you'll consider doing another sometime.

Thanks to you all (everyone!!) for the inspiration ... !!

Rob.

What an excting project! I just ordered my copy. I have question, however. In the cd contents listing I did not see an indication of what type of instrument the performance was recorded from. Is this available? Thanks.
Posted by: kenny

Re: PWPF Piano Solo CD (2 CD set) Now Available! - 10/17/05 12:05 PM

We each used our own pianos.

Some of us hired pros with equipment and some of us used our own recording equipment.

Enjoy!
Posted by: ejsauter

Re: PWPF Piano Solo CD (2 CD set) Now Available! - 10/17/05 03:29 PM

I was interested mostly because there has been a lot of disucssion about what piano members use. Realizing that the acoustics of the recording "studio" will vary, it still might give an approximation of the sound that each type of instrument might have. Perhaps even including more technical aspects, mike placement, room size, etc. would be of benefit to others who are attempting to record their own performances. Just a thought. Thanks.
Posted by: kenny

Re: PWPF Piano Solo CD (2 CD set) Now Available! - 10/17/05 06:54 PM

Yes there is something to that.
Afterall a Steinway does sound different from a Bosie or a Yamaha.
BUT
Many other things profoundly affect the sound.
Microphone quality selection and placement.
Preamp quality.
Recording and processing equipment, like equalization.

Personally I played my Mason and Hamlin BB with close miking with cardioid mics since I am not living in a recording studio.
I tried to remove the sound of my living room, then added a small amount of digital reverb.
I hired a pro to bring in equipment, not that expensive actually.

Frank,
I just received the CD. Thanks for expediting so quick! While I've only listed to a handful of tracks, there are some very, very talented players and I'm sure it will provide some truly wonderful listening experiences.

Hey Ax, really really nice pieces! You are a fine player.

My hat goes off to all.
Thanks again,
Roger

Re: PWPF Piano Solo CD (2 CD set) Now Available! - 01/26/06 08:30 PM

ejsauter, I have a 5'3" Yamaha G1R. I recorded my piece at home with a $250, Fostex MR-8 digital recorder MR 8 . I used Shure SM57 microphones. I don't remember how I had them placed. I had no idea what I was doing!

I browsed the CD on my computer for a few days when I first got the CD. It's been a few months now, time to give it another listen.

Re: PWPF Piano Solo CD (2 CD set) Now Available! - 02/27/06 10:18 PM

The tracks are now on my iPod - that's were the serious listening gets done.

Thank you everyone - belated thanks, perhaps, but I just got my disc a few days ago!

Re: PWPF Piano Solo CD (2 CD set) Now Available! - 03/08/06 09:19 AM

I got my CD's the other day, downloaded them onto my iPod, and since it's always on "shuffle", I get pleasantly surprised when one of the tracks pops up.

Thanks to all! Great work!

Re: PWPF Piano Solo CD (2 CD set) Now Available! - 09/08/06 11:51 AM

Its daft. I cant buy one. I hate it when websites are taking your details and only american address details are listed. It doesnt even say "non-usa" or something. As a result I cant get past that bit as it keeps saying fill it in.

Re: PWPF Piano Solo CD (2 CD set) Now Available! - 09/08/06 12:49 PM

I'm working on the overseas shipping issues.

I can get shipping rates from the US Postal Service for Global Priority, the challenge is the paperwork.

Each country outside the US has it's own requirements.

http://ircalc.usps.gov/

Figure the package weighs about 9 oz (for one CD with shipping box and packing).

Our online store doesn't accept orders outside the US (it says that on the home page) because our credit card processor makes it too complicated.

It is possible to send payment via PayPal.
Just about anybody anywhere can set up a PayPal account.
https://www.paypal.com/

Payments to Piano World can be sent to:
frank@pianoworld.com or payments@pianoworld.com
Posted by: nezkeys79

Re: PWPF Piano Solo CD (2 CD set) Now Available! - 09/09/06 11:14 AM

yeah I am on paypal and want to do that. Is it still just 9.99 then? I live in uk. Btw is that 9.99 dollars or gbp?
Posted by: Axtremus

Re: PWPF Piano Solo CD (2 CD set) Now Available! - 09/09/06 04:14 PM

OK, I've seen too many instances where people with non-US addresses have trouble ordering PW CD.

I have set up a separate web page to handle non-US orders: http://pianorecital.org/MailOrderForm_PWCD.shtml

Frank B. -- it's not my intention to compete with your store. I just think it should be way easier for foreigners to buy PW CD, so I'd still encourage those with US address to just buy from PW store. If you have a problem with this, feel free to delete this post.

I never listened to the CD before today... now that I have a faster computer than can handle the MP3s and videos better a whole world is opening up.

I just heard the sample by Ted "Elegance On Federal Street. Love it.

I hope to order the CD soon. Nice price.
I think it is so cool.
