I came across the excerpt of the beginning of the Brahms concerto in Lydia's Freeway Philharmonic (Part 1) thread, and it got me thinking: would there be an interest from the members to create a sort of "quilt" recording of the Brahms?
That is, what if we all contributed by playing parts of the concerto? We could create a sort of a patchwork recording of the entire piece...I wouldn't mind starting off by posting my own recording of that first bit from Lydia's thread (that takes care of most of the first page)...then someone could contribute the next portion (it could be just a phrase - a couple of measures to a line, or an entire page). Do you think there'd be interest in doing something like that? Might be fun if we could see it to the end...
If we can do this, it'd be nice to keep the posts limited to the recorded portions and encouraging comments - I know we'd be all contributing from different levels of abilities, resources (i.e. instrument, recording equipment, practice time) so it'd be good to do away with the critiquing we normally would be inclined to.
If need be I can scan sections of the score (up to a page) for those who don't have the music.
What do you all think?
