Rossy, that was beautiful duet playing and I noted how very relaxed Beric's hands appeared, tickling the keys.
Thanks for sharing.

vegasE, I nominate you PW's #1 Prince fan and Griffin is Kool's #1 fan.

Off to cook and clean!

Hi Piano Joy - I'm glad you liked the duet. Every few months when I visit Beric (my dad) we play duets. It doesn't especially matter to me whether what we're playing is technically right, or sounds good. For me, playing duets has become the best way I know to make a connection with my Dad, and for years now I've had enormous fun and joy from doing this, which is wonderful.

As for dad's relaxed hands - I've envied him this for a while - since I started having lessons towards the end of last year. Being videod has shown up my stiff- looking hands - and taught me something!

Ooops, that's not what I meant to imply (about your hands!).

I think you should ask Rossy to take more videos -and pictures- of the two of you (meaning your Dad+ you) playing together. Someday, you will TREASURE having them and what lovely memories you are creating for yourself!

Dipsy, that was an awesome video. It made me walk over my piano and start playing around a mozart's duet that I should be working on now in case we have a piano party here in AZ this summer... AZ is Arizona by the way..

Dipsy, that was a delightful duet of your Dad and you! You both sound so accomplished and seem to be having a ton of fun as well. smile

My Dad just turned 88 and never played much (except for two songs - "Fascination" and "Love Makes the World Go Round"), and he never sang either except when I recently played "Chattanooga Choo-Choo", he astonished me by singing along all the words from beginning to end by memory (something I could never do).. I said we'll have to get an act together and hit the road. lol! grin

Looking forward to more of your duets! thumb

Piano joy - I think it would be a great idea to have a record of other duets with dad, and I know I would treasure them. 'My cameraman' would have to be willing of course! Next time I might be in a better state of dress!

Hiya farmgirl - I'm glad you went to your piano to play some of a mozart duet in case you have a piano party, though having a go maybe worthwhile whether or not that happens. I've never heard of a piano party, but it sounds really good. How does it wol have to compete for a go at a single piano?

Do you any of you know if there is a way of playing a duet with someone online whilst maintaining a decent quality of sound and without any problems of the music being out of sync? The only thing I can think of is skype but I'm not sure if this would work well enough.

Hi Elssa - I expect you really value the moment you shared that song with your dad. It seems a shame that most people dont seem to do much humble music making at home nowadays.

Dipsey, that was just wonderful. You are lucky to have a parent who is musically inclined and willing to teach too! I'm the only one in my family who plays anything and my family has no interest at all in even listening to me — never mind playing along. Keep it up with your Dad!

Hi Sandy - I've been lucky to have had music around the house as I was growing up, and I think its such a shame that you don't have folk around you to share your music with. But hey! i guess that's what we're here on piano world for! So there are plenty of people around you and your music- making in spirit.

Dipsey, nice stuff there. Definitely something to enjoy and cherish. Last time I was able to enjoy a duet was many many years ago (I'm not that old smile ) a close friend and I were working on Schubert's Fantasia- I should dig it out.
I am tryin to expose my 5yo and 2.5yo to as much piano as possible, maybe 1 (or both laugh ) will take to it.

Growing up my fam was also non-musical but one of my fondest memories is having my dad walk into the room, Scotch in hand, and sit down to listen to me play/practice. And this is from someone who (as some people here may be able to relate to) worked 99% of the time....brings a smile to my face and a tear to my eye.

Agree with others here.....record some more.

Sorry for the double posting.....

Just remembered your post of Hiromi Uehara.
She really is an amazing pianist and performer...



Check out her duet with Chick Corea for some hot steamy piano playing. Probably illeagal in some places.

I loved your video, Dipsy. I’ve found it very inspiring to improve seriously my poor sight-reading. I know you have had to do a lot of work to reach such level, but it’s worth it clearly. I’m looking forward to seeing more videos of you and your dad playing duets wink.

I really enjoyed listening to your video Dipsy. What a skill to be able to sight read at that level! Also, how wonderful to be able to enjoy the piano with your Dad! It's very inspiring. Thanks for sharing it!

Hiya vegasE, recaredo and griffin - thanks for your nice comments about the duet (though it wasn't pure sightreading. just never rehearsed). I'll try to get Rossy to video more duets when the opportunity arises.

I've always had the support of my dad for anything I've done involving music and as I know that not everyone has this, I think I should be grateful.

we've been listening to Lady Gaga - a first for me. All I knew of her was that she had unusual dress sense and wore a dress made of bacon once. She seemed to have a good voice - good range, and versatilty so I've decided not to criticise her.

I just bought the album "Born this way" last week to see if all the GaGa hype and GaGa trashing frequently thrown about in the media is actually warranted. And my assessment is that this album is straight-up awesome. Not only does it sound great but it is lyrically, by the standards of pop music at any rate, quite intelligent. Almost every track is infused with a calculated subversion of religious themes, and I can now see why theologians across the world have taken such offense to it - to say nothing of the fact that it is a woman who is generating this subversion.

For instance, us westerners might roll our eyes at rhyming "hair" with "prayer," but, to other non-secular nations and cultures, the idea of a woman's hair and the act of prayer have very real significance. Imagine what it must be like to be a girl from a migrant Iranian or Somali family hearing rebellious lyrics like this:



This isn't just mindlessly provocative music, the likes of which we see from boobs like Madonna - there is real substance here (I think).

Wayne knew what he was doing when he went GaGa.

Polyphasicpianist, I almost hate to admit this, but after watching a whole concert on youtube the other night, I totally agree, for instance, here is gaga doing a jazz number, AND YOU GUYS KNOW I HATE JAZZ!!!

I shouted that to make the point that even though I hate jazz, I can still see gaga doing this number well.
In the same concert she then did three solo piano numbers, which showed her skill and versatility, because again they were in a different style to both this jazz AND the dance numbers.

I think everyone should see this clip before making any judgment calls on the LAdy.

Gaga for all the hype and media garbage is certainly a talented performer who is both interesting and has an awfull lot to offer as well, Wayne was correct indeed, he was/is right.


A ticket for one of her concerts in my opinion would be money extremely well spent, you would be entertained in a pleasent way, and like polyphasic pianist says, Her lyrics will give you food for thought as well, and as the Americans say, you will get a lot of bang for your bucks.

Good evening everybody!


I wanted to propose some music by Dvorak again. I never get tired to listen to his piano quintet Op. 81; the beauty of its melodies is fascinating. As always I encourage listening to the whole work, but here we can listen to the second movement “Dumka”.

I hope you like it.

Hi Everyone! I'm sorry I've not been able to post this week. I am into an extremly busy time for the next few weeks at work. We have a couple of major events I am involved with. However, I will definitely be doing my regular Sunday classical postings, and I'm looking forward to getting some quiet time to listen your postings tonight. I hope you all are doing well. Rupak, I know you've been busy too. I do hope you will be able to post some more ICM, even if you may not be able to today.

Dipsy, I liked Jeff Buckley, though I havn't listend to him before. As for the Lady Gaga postings, I am going to listen to them a bit later. I've listened to some of the postings by Wayne of Gaga, and some postings from the PC forum. Frankly, I was impressed with her talent.

I must be off to catch up on a little housework before it gets too far out of control. I hope to check in at least one more time tonight.

Later!



Carl

I can't actually stand this peice, but it is not too often you hear Gould playing this sort of thing so I thought I would post it.



These on the other hand, I love . . .

PPP what actually is a peice? lol. ( Thought wayne was back for a moment!)
Griffin, again, you are working much too hard and this must stop, you are not devoting enough time here!

Today, is a boring Sunday here in the UK.

Please dont suggest reading a book, the last time I tried reading a book was james joyces ullyses and it was shite. There was no punctuation in it. Allthough grammer and spelling does not normally put me off, if a book or post makes no sense at all then I lose the will to live quite easily and Joyce absolutely nailed it in that respect.

I am not a good reader, I get much too bored very quickly and would much rather indulge in pleasures of the flesh. Also, I am better at answering questions on pleasures of the flesh than I am at answering questions on books, I have difficulty remembering authors names, whereas I dont struggle so much with words like Mayfair, or Rustler, and there are most pleasent pictures in those publications, there are no pictures in ullyses at all, not even pictures of readers wives, Joyce must have been too poor to afford a camera,probably because he didnt sell too many books because of the lack of punctuation I guess.

Sunday allways reminds me of religeous things like biblical things, and thats why Sunday allways reminds me of "pleasures of the flesh" because thats in the bible.

Unfortunately, it says dont indulge in them, which falls on deaf ears as far as I am concerned.

fortunately, it also says in the Bible in no uncertain terms " go forth and multiply" why means one of two things:

Thing one: "F*** off." this is a highly unlikely interpretation of "go forth and multiply" but is possible if the divine was angry at someone like noah again or job or another dude who didnt do exactly as he was told whilst being tested to the max.

Thing two: ( much more likely) "go and indulge in pleasures of the flesh" highly likely and excellent sunday advice from the good book, also, with no puctuation issues as in Joyce.

Greetings, Sunday music lovers.

Forgive the sentiment but I first fell in love with this tune when I played it on the recorder as a young boy at school from a little book called Time and Tune - a title which recalls the two most important features of music - as part of the BBC's Music for Schools programme in the early sixties. This is a very moving rendition, though not traditional.



Bizet's Entr'acte shares melodic features with The Minstrel Boy and is similarly emotional but these two performances evoke quite different passions.

Good morning everyone! I've been looking forward to this day. It's the only day I'll probably have time to post this week.

Richard, I enjoyed your second posting. However, I was unable to see your first posting of the Minstrel Boy because my iPad doesn't want me to view it. I'll see it later on my desktop. I just heard a lovely rendition of it performed by John McDermott.

PPP, it's always interesting to see Gould's performances. The Debussy piece reminds me of the ongoing struggle I'm having with bringing Claire de Lune to performance level. I think patience is my greatest challenge with it, however. smile

Rossy, I'd love to spend more time on this thread. however, there is this strong competing interest -- the need to earn a paycheck! laugh Of course that could change if a patron of great wealth would come forward and hand me a check for 1 million dollars! I wont hold my breath for that to happen. LOL

Recaredo, I loved your Dvorak posting. It motivated me to explore some more of his compositions, and I'll be posting one today. Speaking of Sunday postings... I'll be back with my Sunday classical posts!

I don't believe I've ever posted any performances by American soprano, Barbara Hendricks. Here is a wonderful introduction if you are not familiar with this gifted soprano. Here is her performance of Giuseppe Verdi's Falstaff: "Sul fil d'un soffio etesio"

Recaredo had a strong influence on my next music choice when he encouraged us to explore more of the works of Anton Dvorak. I fell in love with this moving performance of "Slavonic Dance in E Minor, Opus 72, No. 2 and the lively Slavonic Dance in C Major, Opus 72, No 7" by violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlman and master cellist Yo Yo Ma.

Fantastic Sunday posts, Griffin. I’ve found two marvellous discoveries in them: the composer Johann Molter and the soprano Barbara Hendricks. I hope you can post more about this singer, I loved her voice so much like Leontyne Price’s. And good Dvorak’s selection wink

I agree with you Recaredo - many thanks Griffin for being so busy showing us new music. I'd never heard of Molter before and found the extract v uplifting. The Dvorak was also wonderfully expressive, without being syrupy.

Richard - I liked the Bizet - very smooth and recognised the similarity with the Minstrel Boy (a song my ex husband was attached to as part of his scottish heritage).

Griffin - are you familiar with the spirituals in Tippett's 'A child of our time'? - Deep river, go down moses, etc. I've tried to find a decent clip on youtube to show you, but am still looking. You may like it.
