    Being innocent and full of dreams, I have been working on some pieces to submit to the Society, in the wild hope my recordings might get approved (What then? I will need to keep submitting :shock: Maybe I better change my mind while it's time! :) )

    While I still have not chosen what to throw to the lions - I mean, submit to the board - (I am not really totally satisfied with what has come so far: there is always a note missing, a pause where it should not be or a wife saying dinner is ready in the 3rd beat of bar 3.654 :D ) I have recorded this little folly. I will say I ellaborated it maybe 20 years ago but I am curious - can anyone identify of what it is an ellaboration?

    The winner gets a used potato chip! :evil:

    Very basic technically this is:

    The piano is an upright Geyer (at the time it was the only one that could negotiate the stairs into the flat).
    The recorder is a portable MP3 one placed on the sofa behind me. Normally it would be a bit further off, but as I have broken my right ankle and can only hop like a frog in springtime I had to be practical.

    It's the Beatles, "The Long and Winding Road".

    I'd have loved that used potato chip but I guess it was not meant to be :lol:

    Richard I hope you don't go and post this kind of stuff for serious one day . . . Yeah Beatles are classical but this is not quite Our Thing.

    That's quite all right, Chris! I did this once as a lark. It is not among the pieces I am seroiusly thretening to inundate you with.

    Yes. Monica gets the potato chip. but don't feel too miffed: it is a used one, remember!

    There is no such thing as a 'used potato chip'...
