So I figured out how to get photos from my Blackberry to my computer. How do you add a photo that doesn't have a URL to a post here then?

I'm not sure how to add photos without a URL, but you can easily give it one.

Just go to http://photobucket.com/, create a free account there, upload your photos from your computer, and then they'll have a URL.

I am addicted and not getting much done. Hard to just keep it in the background when I wanna watch!

There have been some incredible performances. And I can so relate to the nerves that cause some others to be not as stella as they really can play.

Has anyone posted yet what piano is in the main hall? Or the one that was early EST this morning - And the weather was so nice that the windows were open!

I so want to know who is playing and WHAT they are playing.

Darn, I don't know Polish!

It's about 3 pm here in Chicago. I have just spent the last two hours listening to astounding performances. A gentleman even played, among other pieces, the Polonaise-fantaisie in A flat. When I heard two opening three notes, my heart went in my throat.

Don't feel bad lilylday; I've done nothing at all today but brush my teeth.

I am on a cloud.

Many thanks to you, LA. We would probably never have found it.

I feel the same way. There was a pianist- dress in all black earlier this morning(with the hanky) that was very good. He played for about 45 min? I really enjoyed watching him play. Had a certain "air" about him.

I tried to identify the piano earlier and it had a "Musial"? stencil on the side. One I am not familiar with. Perhaps it is something in Polish?

Dear Mark,

And not for the last time!

So today was day 1 of the conference; some official comments to start, then some plenary papers (including a tantalizing glimpse at Chopin's annotations of a Bach WTC edition (not the one he did in Mallorca, though) in Jean-Jacques Eigeldinger's paper, and regular papers as well.

So here's a first try at a photo. The University of Warsaw unveiled a new plaque commemorating Chopin's 3 years there (1826-29) and the liberal education he received. Let's see if this works:

[Linked Image]

If it does work, I'll try to get more interesting photos as we proceed. But now, time for bed: my paper's first one up at 9 am tomorrow.

IT WORKED! smile

BTW, Dr. K: Do you know if it's true that the "Emile Gailliard" mazurka was originally supposed to be Opus 43?

P.S. It fascinates me that these illustrious people of old must have had no idea that what would immortalize them was the pieces dedicated to them. Would we ever have heard of "Emile Gailliard," not to mention Razumovsky, Waldstein.....

Here is the link Mark C. It is as you guessed, the one dedicated to Emile Gaillard his pupil and friend.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4tsWgI7z_s

I knew Chopin was a humble guy who didn’t like putting titles against his Opus numbers, but he must have been very very humble not to put even an Opus number against this one.

Props to the guy in the first row, the one with the cane, brown vest and black hat. He was sitting there when I tune in this morning, at noon, this afternoon, and still, same chair this evening. Amazing! He occasionally writes in a small black book. He is either getting paid or a huge Chopin fan!

Dear Mark,

I don't think there's any direct evidence that the "EG" mazurka was to have been op 43: it would have been unusual for him to publish a mazurka by itself in that manner. But as a supplement to a newspaper (which is how it was published) it was not so unusual.

Off to give my paper . . .

Thanks! And of course good luck with the presentation!

I did a little more checking about the "Gaillard" mazurka (which I think I've been misspelling in all my posts) smile .....and several references seem to say that the first edition of the mazurka "erroneously" carried the opus number 43 which had already been given to the Tarentelle. I had remembered the story being that the mazurka got the number first but then it was changed.

Not that any of this matters of course. ha

But folks like me find it fascinating. smile

BTW.....Huneker's book is one of the sources that mentions (in a footnote) Op. 43 in connection with this mazurka. Not that he was necessarily always accurate......

Thank you, Dr.K. And I wish you success with your paper. Or maybe I'm too late. Anyhow, you are so unselfish with your time and energy, and we do so appreciate it.

I feel like a idiot, but I don't know anything about Mr. Gibbons. But I will listen to him as soon as I can take a break from this concert, which might be a while.

I am listening to it on my laptop and the speakers are not good at all. I have to plug in my earphones. I bought a el cheapo speaker, but it's exactly that - cheap and no good. Can anyone recommend a good (and relatively inexpensive) speaker that I can use for my laptop.

Wow, the man who is playing now is super. (8:45 Chicago time). BTW, does anyone know the time difference from the US to Poland (relatively)?

Has anyone noticed that there is a counter (in light gray) on the side of the screen. Mike White pointed this out to me. Close to one million have logged on so far. It should be in the numbers of people who watch "American Idol," but then what do most people think talent is? I guess screaming at the top of one's lungs qualifies. Think of the years and years and years these performers have put into their craft. I can't even imagine the sacrifices they have made to become what they are.

Has anyone noticed that they all seem to be wearing black? I hope this is not to mourn. I would think (in my little mind) that red and white would be more appropriate. thumb

Happy listening to all,
Kathleen

An interesting thread with links to some fascinating articles:

http://www.pianoworld.com/forum/ubb...sical_Music_as_Punishme.html#Post1383310

Puts the concept of nonstop Chopin in a somewhat different light, I'm afraid....

I'm told that a soprano/string player from Albuquerque, Joanna Morska-Osinska, is going to play in the marathon on Monday, but I don't see her on the program. I'm trying to find out more.

The woman who was playing a moment ago was wearing a red and black dress, and the current performer is wearing a dark print. (Me, I wear black much of the time no matter what.)

I was afraid that I was severely out of it, because I had never heard of Jack Gibbons either. Sorry, Jack! Now I've looked at your website and will listen to you sometime very soon.

Did anyone hear the two blind students play? Unbelievable!

Off topic: I posted my "two cents" on the thread about using music for torture. I know I come off sounding like a typical old biddie. Has anyone ever considered why all old biddies sound the same? Maybe they have lived long enough to gather a bit of wisdom along the way. Just a thought.

Anyhow, after practice, I am returning to the concert. AND I have that 5 hour concert on Monday at Northwestern. Gosh, I wonder if all this classical music would amount to being tortured? What a way to go. laugh

And she did so, beautifully.
