3 is Medtner. But which piece?


Lyrisch Fragment op.23 nr.2

Quote:
8 is Alkan. Which?


Prelude op.31 nr.14

Quote:
10 is by an Australian who later became a music educator in New York.


Grainger: cakewalk Smasher (from Cook's "In Dahomay")

Quote:
14 is by a gent who wrote intricate polyphonic music, both original and derivative works. Some of the latter have been criticized as disrespectful to the originals, but are increasingly appreciated by connoisseurs.


Godowsky: Spieldose (from Triakontameron)

Quote:
19 is Kapustin. Which?


Bagatella op.59 nr.9

Quote:
22 is indeed Alkan. Which?


Nocturne op.22

Quote:
26 is by an Eastern European admirer of Brahms. His grandson is a highly regarded conductor.


Dohnanyi: Piano Concerto op.5

Too sleepy to keep up searching.
Going to bed now, goodnight to this side of Piano Society and good morning to the other one.

Btw, thank you for digging up this stuff. How much good music around covered with dust!

coccobill gets 3, 10, 14, 19, 22. Extremely close on 8 as well. Maybe we have different numberings or something. 26 is indeed a Dohnányi concerto but not the fifth (I don't think he wrote that many).

That's 5 (very nearly 6). Well done!

I give up. This is getting MUCH too difficult and specialistic. Bit of a private joke between you and me because of all the Medtner.

That's weird! Isn't that "Le Temps qui n'est plus" from the 25 Preludes op.31? On my score it gets number 14. :?

It's not the fifth, it is the first, in e minor (opus 5, as I wrote). :)

cheers,

I agree about the over-specificity of the questions. Whoever wins the round could add variety. There's no harm in mixing up the questions a bit. Think "Jeopardy".

I'm glad I was introduced to this 'Medtner'; his style is highly original.

That's the one. My Jack Gibbons recording says #12 but you may well be right. And I misread your Dohnányi answer. +2, then, bringing you to 7. techneut's lead is in danger!

Oh, I dunno. Someone else recognized him too. I agree with Pete that whoever does the next batch can and should take a different tack, and it was precisely due to that assumption that I chose the kind of stuff I did. For some people my choices, which are fairly representative of my quotidian musical diet, will be obscure and difficult; I recognize that. The next person's choices may be obscure and difficult for me. I certainly hope so. :-) In the long run, we'll all widen our listening horizons. And that's why we're playing this game, right?

Expanding horizons is good, yes.

I don't think so, in fact this is actually the best I can do (and with plenty of help). Chris is going to win this round. :cry:

I agree. These were impossible, and biased to a few composers. A better game would be more familiar pieces (but not obvious like Chopin's preludes or Beethoven's Sonatas), and samples taken from a broader pool of composers.

I think that the game of Jeopardy is easier than this.

The unidentified pieces are:

01 Marx: Romantic Piano Concerto (3rd mvt)
04 Confrey: Kitten on the Keys
13 Bortkiewicz: The Princess and the Pea
18 Medtner: Hymn (from Romantic Sketches for the Young, Op. 54)
20 MacDowell D minor Concerto (1st mvt)
23 Feinberg: Berceuse Op. 19a
25 Catoire: Prelude Op. 34 #3

Impressive work, Piano Societans! Thanks for playing. The winner of this round, and the arbiter of the next, is techneut.
