Stagnation? You don't find 'Arcosonic Wood Stickers' fascinating? I could read about that forever.

I agree, although not necessarily with that last part. But then again I think you don't either. ha

goat cheese and artichokes is good. Mmmmm hungry!

Maybe I should ask that beethoven question about slurs...

I like edgy members here. They shouldn't be banned.. Just have their posts deleted if it REALLY comes to it.

Actually I'm a bit surprised I am still here.

I'm sure members are hoping for the return of the homophobe and the neo-Nazi. Aren't such things always foretold by scripture?

I could give you my wife's email address. She loves 'em. My sons and I leave the house when she indulges this atrocious passion, but the cats follow her around endlessly, hoping for whatever is the anchovy equivalent of table scraps.

Well I'm not missing them, Scripture or whatever. I do miss sottovoce -his posts were often fun and sometimes very enlightening- but this very intelligent man got a bit carried away with excess (not that I ever do blush ), and he finally crossed the Rubicon. Rather a pity. Once permanently banished, no return.

LOL laugh I think I've only met one other person besides myself who absolutely goes bonkers over anchovies on pizza.

Now pineapple on pizza -oh the perfidy- is something else, and I shudder at the thought.

Don't worry. In music like that, it doesn't matter what notes you play. ha

ha indeed. If it were only so! Do you know Ich hab in Penna einen Liebsten wohnen from the Italian Songbook of Wolf, by any chance? It has this insane postlude for piano solo where you riot up and down the keyboard molto allegro. And I'd finally nailed it in F major, too. Off to practise it in E flat...

ha ha Mark. The piano accompaniments in Wolf are a nightmare. I've only played a few of them, much prefer the safer havens of Brahms and Strauss.

Well I hope you don't accidentally slip back into F major under the pressure of performance. I know I would shocked
Hope it goes well and back to practising with you!

No Mark, it's the postlude. Currawong should play a little chord progression eg Eb - Cm - C (not very subtle I know) - then straight into the postlude in F. They'll think you spontaneously created a butt-saving improvisation and be extremely impressed. Either that or they will see as a desperate and pathetic gaffatape style solution to your technical difficulties Haha
You could add Marks low Eb at the very end as well, yes that's quite a good idea after all.

Well chaps,

See what you can do if you’re not careful ...
to enliven the present dreary Pianist Corner menu.

Here are your bright ideas ... obviously off the top of your moggy crusts

Rach 3
Not doin’ anything
Rach 1
Need more visitors
More bun-fights for klutz
Avoiding the topic ... because it’s stagnant
Lang Lang and anchovies on their pizza
A lot of it is probably just "summer"
peperoni and mushrooms
I think it's the banning of the "edgy" types
You don't find 'Arcosonic Wood Stickers' fascinating?
goat cheese and artichokes is good
pineapple on pizza
Maybe people are busy.

Perhaps it’s time to get out my golf clubs and relish the 19th.
You chaps are in a dopey state of Rach1/3 pizza inertia ... I’m off ... Fore!!

Just looked that up(it had to be the last in the second book) at the wholesome tempo of 160 to the crotchet and a 4measure long run in semiquavers I wish you luck.

I'd rather stick my foot down my throat. whome(did he just say that)
