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.
