In our ongoing effort to complete the Triakontameron set, here is the current list of the pieces that are still open (and the ones already spoken for).

To some of you members who have not yet contributed – why don’t you check out some of these missing pieces on IMSLP and give one or two (or more) of them a shot. Wouldn’t it be fun to play something new? They’re not very long. I’ll even give you a nice little reward if you do! :)

4 – Chris
7 – Chris
8 – Hye-Jin
10 – Alfonso
22 –
23 –
24 – Monica
25 – Monica
28 –
29 – Andreas
30 – Chris

I was going to do no.7 as well. Unless someone else badly wants it.
Nice that I can do the final one now, as I started the cycle with no.1 :D

Oops...I don't really know yet....have not thought that far ahead. I guess you can just tell me what kind of reward you'd like... :lol:

Don´t know, may be one million dollar and a sailing yacht? (The sailing yacht just as a modest addition, because one million dollar are too few.) :lol:
You see, it can become expensive to promise a reward without having thought about it before. :wink:

Can someone recommend me one of the missing pieces which is not that hard and suitable for small public performances? I think I'll have to make one in January again and have no prepared pieces now. Besides I'd like to participate in this project of you guys :wink:

Try Youtube. There are lots of recordings of the Triakontameron, but I'm not sure if the ones missing from our collection are there or not. Also, all them are on IMSLP so you can glance at the ones missing and see if they look appealing to you.

If you want a nice couple of Triakontameron to play for public - regardless of whether or not we have them on our site already - you can't go wrong with Alt Wein and The Salon. Those are two of my favorites and audience love them. Also, there is a real short one called The Little Tango Rag. It's only about a minute long and pretty easy to play. It's a great one to end with because it's very cute! I'll be playing it myself this coming Friday but didn't know I'd be playing in public until a few days ago so now I'm frantically trying to memorize a couple pieces; this Tango being one of them. I'll be playing on a ship - a first for me!

Does that mean that your ship has come in? I realized the other day that if I'm going to wait for my ship to come in, I better move closer to a bigger body of water. :wink:

I wish the ship would go away :!: I'm scared already. I'll be playing in front of ALL my co-workers.

Scott, do you want to record any of our missing pieces here on the list?

In the old to-do-list of Triakontameron I still had to prepare Nos.10-29-30. I'm sorry to say that at the moment I cannot finish my part. Happy to see that Andreas will take care of No.29. I remember that Chris already wanted to do No.30, which probably should be left for this PS project to a pianist from USA. 8) The No.10 slot is empty so maybe in future, if nobody takes it, eventually I should do my part to complete the project...

Monica, thank you for your comment! I really want to join in this project and definitely will check YT and IMSLP. And the best wishes for your performance in that ship! (How romantic :) ) I believe you'll do that well. You have even an experience of playing in a competition, don't you?!
Alfonso, I'm sooooo glad to see your appearance here! All the best for you and your work, so that you can come back to us as soon as possible :wink:

Hi HJ,

I don't think that you'll find all the pieces on YT, just a sparse selection. PM me if you want a recording of the complete set.

Hi Alfonso,
I am glad to see you again, as well! In this kind of community, when someone disappears for a while, the others don't always know if that someone met with peril, so it's nice to know that you are okay.

I will mark you down for doing no.10. That way, you have to come back to see us. :) . Also, what do you mean about an American playing no.30?

Thanks Hye-Jin. I just want to get it over.

Thank to Alfonso I could listen to all the missing pieces in this project. And the result is: I take No.8 (A Watteau Paysage) :)

I seem to remember that you wanted it, too :wink:

Godowsky triumphantly ending this mini-requiem with the Star-spangled Banner (as if the US had single-handedly ended our little European dispute :roll: ) does not imply that Americans have a claim to this piece. Next you'll tell me I should leave the Java Suite to the Javanese :lol:

Anyway if any of our patriotic US members feels like doing this one I'll be happy to leave it (just thought it might sound nice on my revised Gaveau).

BTW - Welcome back, if back is what you are (I am not quite sure)

I'm glad for that. This is one I have never been able to really warm to, even though it is quite cute.

Yes, as I wrote in brief in my previous message.

Too late for a SPOILER ALERT...

Of course not, just a gesture of kindness from us who know the piece.

It's not the same thing, but if anything, we don't have Indonesian pianists at PS.

Thank you. I am on vacation and just hanging around for a while (also, someone told me that my name had popped up).

I don't want to do the last one, so the list stays as is. Except I've marked down Alfonso's and Hye-Jin's picks.
