It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
I haven't posted before on this thread, so I'm hoping this music is appropriate, but I came across this on youtube and loved it so much I thought it was worth a share. Besides that imagine airlifting a piano up to a cliff top.
Greetings everyone! I sincerely apologize for being silent for so long! My life's become a complete mess lately I'm planning to come back to RST and share some music for almost a year!! Anyway, finally I've succeeded

Thanks Recaredo! Initially I decided not to participate as my piano practicing is also running as randomly as my life! But the amount of enjoyments and lessons I've got by participating in previous recitals (starting from right here, our RST!!!) overrode all of my laziness and disappointments! I'm really happy that such a beautiful piece was still left for me Your choice is also fantastic! I'm really looking forward to listening to all of your beautiful playings!
Thanks to all for sharing such wonderful musics! Welcome to RST, Mandy, and great selection I'm also a fan of PianoGuys and their musics! Recently I've downloaded all of the videos from their official youtube channel
Griffin, can't wait for listening your performance on your recital! Wish you best of luck!
Recently, I've come across this wonderful contemplative piece by Mozart, performed by one of my favorite pianist, Hélène Grimaud:
Richard Yeah I love Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. They are fantastically talented. The make great original music and great covers. What I really love about them is how versatile they are. They play country and western, heavy metal, top 40, R&B, Blues, 60's psychedelic rock, pretty much everything.
here's one more of them that I love. It's an acoustic version of one of their harder rocking songs, and I love the acoustic version even more than the original.
Re Stranglehold: I have always loved that song! Amazing guitar work, simply amazing. Whatever one thinks of ted nugent's politics, the dude can play a guitar! Although, I can't hear that song now without thinking of veronica mars lol. (The song was featured prominently, or perhaps ominously, in the season 2 finale that show.)
Greetings everyone! It's so nice to see some new contributors to RST. I'm going to share a little music today since I can't play the piano for a while. My doctor has ordered me to stop playing for a few weeks. My right hand and wrist are in a brace. It seems I've overused my right hand . The big question is whether I'll be able to perform in a student recital which is scheduled near the end of October. I'll keep you updated.
In the meantime, here's a fun video a friend shared with me. I'll spread the joy here. The performance is in various locations in Toronto. They are performing to Bach's G Minor Presto. Enjoy!
Carl Oh that sucks! you have my sympathy. I injured my hand (work related) a couple of years back and had to have a long break from piano playing while it healed. When you say that you overused your hand, was that from piano playing? If so, that could be an indication of bad technique which needs correcting before you play again. If not (and either way actually) I empathize with the frustration. Wishing you as fast a recovery as possible.
Thanks Richard and Fizikisto! I'm suspecting the problem is technique. I had started feeling tension in my neck and shoulders about a month ago. I suspect it may be related. I will be seeing a hand specialist and hopefully we will get to the bottom of this problem very soon. My piano teacher will also work with me once the specialist develops a plan for my recovery.
It's true that I'm bummed out about this happening. I only hope I'll be able to avoid this problem in the future. Right now I'm exploring a few gentle yoga techniques that seems to help reduce the tension in my neck area. That will help me stay comfortable until I see the specialist. I'll keep you posted.
:p to the video tag crack, but I'll try it. Really enjoyed the piece at the royal opera house.
Carl I'm always up for a little jazz. The the name, Morocco reminds me of something that happened to my friend many years ago. It was back when pakistan and india surprised the world by conducting their first nuclear weapon tests.
My friend who has rather avant guard musical tastes was listening to a radio station in morocco that was being streamed over the internet. A news report cut into middle of one of the songs. My friend doesn't speak arabic, so the news report sounded like gibberish to him, with one exception. To his ears he basically heard in this breaking news report diba-diba-diba *thermonuclear explosion* diba-diba-diba
Needless to say, he freaked out a little bit.
Anyway, here's a little something that I hope will go down smoothly.
Wow, Recaredo isn't going to recognise this place!
While we're on a trumpet theme, I learnt this first on trumpet, maybe fifty years ago, and it's still one of my all time favourite tunes. It's one of the first tunes I pick out when I come across an unfamiliar instrument.
Absolutely wonderful music being played here today! I'm going to share one more piece that I posted on a Sunday morning shortly after this thread was first started by Rossy. It's yet another reminder of the gifts of Wynton Marsalis to the world of music. In this case it's classical music.
