It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
In addition to my usual school pieces, played Faure improvisation Op 84-5, Rentaro Taki’s 2 piano pieces ( one of the first European style music in Japan). I have scores but could not find way to post them here. So here’s the video. I thought about playing the first one for our local piano club but decided not to - it sounds scary, kind of ominous. I love the Faure piece.
Nice…. very nice music and a very different genre than I usually play….enjoy your playing.

As a true Baroque enthusiast I have been working on Fugues of Johann Albrechtsberger. For those who are interested, here is the link to some nice, typically baroque fugues, sometimes going on to Rococo. Take a look at the fugue C-major and the fugue D-minor..... Fuga’s of Johann Georg Albrechtsberger Who was he……? Wiki: Albrechtsberger
I'm still retraining my fingers and brain (I had unfortunately been away from the piano for about a decade due to various factors), so I needed to start over again with Alfred's All in One Adult course. But yesterday, I finally made Chatanooga Choo-Choo, the last piece in the first book, sound somewhat respectable. Still needs quite a bit of work though.
2 weeks ago took out an old Irving Berlin song that was recorded 2 years ago. Played it in a faster tempo, made a new recording the day before and submitted it to the PW recital. Blue skies smilin' at me. Nothin' but blue skies do I see.
Yesterday started working on another piece that was downloaded before Christmas arranged for easy piano. 78 bars total. Just starting the first 16 bars.
Some organist/friend in the Netherlands send me the national anthem of Ukraine for organists to play in in church next sunday....I played it and posted at Adult beginner forum... Play and pray for Ukraine
