Yep. I love this set.

Dang, y'all are good. I don't recognize any of these pieces, so for me this round is just like the "Guess the Composer" game I used to play with my dad when something unfamiliar was on the radio. What era must it be from? Whose style does it sound like? What's the general shape of the piece? School's going to be crazy for the next few weeks but hopefully I'll have some time to think harder about these. Regardless, well done. And I really like the personal touch (literally) here. I suspect I couldn't have played most of the pieces I selected!

The International Rachmaninoff Conference is going on right now here in New York, and ends tonight with a concert. Jung Lin and Adam Golka will be playing Medtner there. Guess where I'll be. :-) Also, I'm analyzing the Op. 26 #3 Skazka for my theory class this afternoon. If I do a writeup, perhaps Piano Society would be interested to publish it?

Schumann: Novellette op.21 nr.8 (Trio II)

Quote:


Bach: Toccata BWV 916 (Adagio)

Smart choices, Chris. Both works usually neglected in favour of some of their sisters (the first two Novelletten and the D major and C minor Toccatas). And both I should have recognised almost immediately (Ciani and Sokolov my references for Schumann, Gould and again Gould for Bach). :-)

Well done, two points for coccobill and Kschyschtoff each !
I did wonder whether the Ecossaise was too trivial with all the Chopin experts here, but I am delighted that some did not recognize it :D

I'm sitting here with my feet up, drinking wine, and listening to your nice playing, but I'm hearing everybody, now. Shosti, Franck, Ravel, Granados, Liadov etc...can't pin anything down, so I'm quitting. Good luck to everybody else!

That's what I said regarding my research paper! I handed it in without even finishing it, I ended in mid-sentence. Who cares, I have only 10 class days left before my 3rd year of college is completed. 8)

I too hear some Shostakovich (track 16, at the beginning, and the transposition at 47'' is very much Shostakovich), but cannot find out what it is.

Track 11 must be something in (pseudo)classic style, maybe Mendelssohn?

Anyway, one more finding: track 19 is "Bransle de Champagne" from Poulenc's Suite Française.

cheers,
alf

Just listening again to it, and no, except for those very moments, definitely it is not Shostakovich.
