    Hello everyone,

    I'm a new visitor as well so it is always possible that I am missing some of the history that gave rise to this change.

    I do want to say that I would find it valuable to listen to high-quality recordings by professionals who want to donate them to this site, but don't necessarily have the time to hang around posting on the forum. Something like a version of imslp.org for sound recordings--wouldn't that be sweet? (Although I suppose imslp is trying to do that now with their performances category, but it doesn't have nearly the volume of material as they have for scores.)

    cheers,
    hreichgott

    Hello hreichgott,
    Sorry, I didn't see your post until now...
    Yes, we are happy to have recordings by professionals on our site; we just want them to participate more often on our site. But we have so many extremely good recordings by members who are not 'professionals' so there is plenty here to offer a listener. Also, IMSLP is a great site! And they have many PS recordings there too. :)

    Does the PS have a facebook page or group? That might generate more interest in the site. I know two piano sites. One is Piano Teacher Central. The other is Piano Pronto. She's a new publisher seeking people to help get published. Jennifer Ecklund is her name.

    Hi, new member here. I can understand the reasoning behind the new policy but would it be still okay if a new member like myself who doesn't have recordings to share(at the moment) to participate in this forum? I'd be more than happy to comment on the recordings of the other members here and be as active in the threads as I can. I'm still quite new and I wanted to get to have more inspirations from listening to others work. I will post my recordings eventually, but not too confident right now. Thanks.

    Hello, Monica! Your playing of the Chopin Barcarolle moved me to tears. I could hear the hard work, the dedication, the determination which you poured into this piece. I first fell in love with the Barcarolle at the tender age of 4. That was 72 years ago, before osteoarthritis and tendinitis reared their ugly heads. Several times in my adult life I have tried to play this magnificent piece; each time I gave up. I failed. Unfortunately, I lacked piano teachers who were encouraging. Now you have inspired me to try again. I will be my own teacher. You do not play like Evgeny Kissin. But you play like Monica, and I think that's wonderful. You have inspired me in a way that Kissin cannot. Thank you, Monica.

    Hello Janet! I am sorry I haven't responded to you sooner, but I don't participate on Piano Society anymore. Life has taken me in other directions and I've had to stop certain activities because things were crazy for a while. But things are starting to settle down now. I am still practicing my piano but not making many recordings. I hope that will improve again some day too. Anyway, thank you so much for the kind words! The Barcarolle took me so long to learn, but it sure was a labor of love. I definitely encourage you to keep at it. Just work on one section at a time. That helped me. You'll get it!
    Thank you again! You've really made my day!! :)
