I don’t find any recording of Richter on the Emperor, but I think he played this concerto. It's strange.

I apologise in advance for my clip, because it has nothing to do with music.

This really made me laugh - (and, though precious, laughter improves through being shared) so I hope you like it.

Ok so I am taking a couple of courses this summer. They end next week and I'm very excited. One has been driving me, and I really think my brain is fried.

Aimee, after watching the last video you posted I'm curious to know the subject of those courses you're taking.

The first time I met Tanayev's music was when I bought a CD on his string quartets. I loved those works so much that I wondered why this composer was so little popular.

But after listening to this cantata, I should wonder why music history is sometimes so unfair.

I'm loving the Kempf vids.His recordings of the Emperor concerto are my favorite.The Schubert impromptu has inspired me to have another bash at it.He somehow does that to me.I listen to him play and I think 'Oh I see now, it's not difficult at all, it's easy'.Of course it never is.
Here he is playing the Theme and first two variations of Schumann's op13.

Well, Recaredo, I'm taking two classes. One is rather easy - it's Information Technology Program Management. That one is pretty easy. I think I might take a certification test for it - need to research it. I've really enjoyed playing with MS Project. I'm even toying with the idea of using it to map out piano practice/song completions.

The KILLER is the C++ class. I don't have much programming experience, and I think I try to learn more than I need to for the tests. Then I get overwhelmed. It doesn't help that you need to be really organized to keep up with it all. I can't remember ever working so hard on anything. I was even dreaming about it. I would spend hours nonstop on it.

Took the final yesterday. I passed. I don't think I got an A or anything, but I survived. Huge weight lifted! I slept like a baby last night!


I have the program management final tomorrow, but that one's pretty simple. So I feel like I'm finished!
So very relieved. I'm taking another class in a few weeks - but it's only one and it's not in the shortened summer session.

Can't wait to listen to the Tanayev. It's crazy thinking about how many writer-of-music go unremembered. I look on IMSLP sometimes, and just wonder how many gems are hiding in there that somehow fell out of favor with the masses over the years.

Also can't wait to hear Kempff playing Schumann, Timmy! I just saw that Deutsche Grammophon released Kempff's collected studio concerto recordings (14 cds) this year, and last year released his collected studio solo recordings (35 cds!). I need to get these!

I love Kempff's interpretations.. not only do I feel as if he "gets" it (especially his Beethoven!), he can play it.

(Oh... halfway through the Tanayev and I'm loving it!)

The chorus of this song has been running though my head since I took my exam yesterday hehehe!

Congrats on those courses, Aimee, they seem useful and can be profitable.

Btw, thanks for those postings on Kempff. When I was much younger I had two vinyls with recordings of Kempff playing some Beethoven's sonatas, but they didn't agree with me very much. However, lately I'm starting to apreciate the art of this pianist.

He's so relaxed as he nails that! I love musicians that are so natural that the instrument to them is like another appendage that they can make do whatever they want.

We were listening to NPR on the way to work yesterday and listened to an interview with this very impressive singer, Valerie June. It's been a while since I've heard something outside the box, so I was very excited.
She describes her music as "Organic Moonshine Roots" music. The NPR interview can be found here, if you want to learn more about her:
http://www.npr.org/blogs/therecord/...rning-to-love-perfectly-imperfect-voices

Honestly, I think that voice is just perfect!
This is "Shotgun."

Excellent little class on Rossini's music.

Joyce Didonato is an awesome singer, but what a smart lady she is as well.

Fascinating production of Don Giovanni in Paris.



Btw I wouldn't like to see anyone missing Miah Persson singing that Don Giovanni.

I just thought you'd like to know (in case you were wondering what had happened to Rossy)that he's fine, but extremely busy and without internet access at the moment. When I saw him a few days back he was asking after things here.

I'm sure he'll be back here if he gets a moment, (and internet access).

I am so glad to hear that Rossy is fine, and will be returning! Dipsy, please give him my regards when you see him.

I've missed everyone here at RST. However, I do stop by often. I just can't participate right now because I'm using that time for my piano studies. I'm pleased to report that I am beginning to see some results. My piano teacher is noticing the progress since I've retired and increased my practice time. After he heard how much progress I'm making with Clair de Lune, he suggested the next big piano challenge for me after I get Clair de Lune under my fingers.

Since I am already listening to this new and challenging piece, I will share it with my friends here at RST. Besides, you'll see why I have much less time for music postings when I'm presented challenges like this! smile

Prelude Op. 3 No. 2 in C# Minor (Rachmaninoff)

Griffin, glad to see you're doing well too.

That prelude is a challenging piece without a doubt, but I'm sure you'll do it justice. Have fun learning this marvellous music!

I don't know if this video will last uploaded to Youtube, so it's a big opportunity to see one of the best films on Beethoven's music.

The day that changed music forever. So true. When you have a free hour and a half, please enjoy this marvellous movie.

Welcome back, Griffin.. I am glad that retirement suits you! Love the Rachmaninoff - but then I'm a sucker for anything with a boomy bass. I liked reading about the reproduction method of that piece too - amazing that they pulled that recording from an old piano roll. It must feel so good to get to a piece that gratifying.

Glad to hear Rossy is doing okay, and will be back soon. We're beginning to feel neglected wink

Ragdoll, those kids are too cute (and too talented! waaaah!)

I hope I get a chance to watch that, Recaredo.. Eroica seems to be pooping up all over the place for me lately.




I might post something later. Nothing's been incredibly inspiring to me lately.

Aimee, congrats on your last recital, I did enjoy your sonatina, that was so clear performance.

Loved the Glass, Wayne!

Wow that boy on the banjo is amazing.
Love the Heart of Glass arrangement as well.

I've still got Stevie Wonder on repeat play in my head.

I know... it's sick. If I'd only begun piano at that age grin

I first saw these kids on Letterman's show and then at a Bluegrass show in Tennessee. I love the relaxed (sittin' on his feet) posture of the littlest one, no stress for him I see. Thanks for looking AimieeO.

I keep being reminded of the strong friendships I've developed on this thread so I'm dropping by to say Hi.

The Grieg recital is drawing closer and this video encompasses my current situation in regard to it!



Keep well and talk soon, etc.

Great choice Timmy! I can't think of anything Stevie Wonder does that I don't like. Give me a day and maybe I'll come up with something I don' like. Probably not! grin

Griffin and Wayne - it great that you're dropping in again - makes me feel its like 'old times' again (though I've only been on PW for a year and a half - I must have aged a lot in that time to be saying that!).

Recaredo- it looks like you've got some more company again on this thread! For quite a while it looked like only a few people were posting here, and it now seems to have woken up somewhat. Or maybe it was the strange object that I posted at the start of this page which AimeeO said 'creeps her out' and may have put people off!!

Richard - yes we're hard at 'work' 'under pressure' with the grieg stuff, but it'll be worth it in spades, I'm sure - and its nice to meet in a place on PW where there's no work to do!

On the eve of the Grieg recital - next Saturday, 14th September, there will be a special post on the grieg recital thread which you might enjoy. So I hope you can visit the thread for a few minutes.

Since last night was Last Night of the Proms, I've found a small concert which appears to come from Germany - perhaps from a UK army base (if there are any British Soldiers still left there!) ? Otherwise, if its just for German people - I think they're really good sports singing our nationalistic songs... It seems fun, but wierd.
