No my friend... no tea for me.


But, you must know that tea was the favored drink of the genius Mozart (at least in the morning), a habit he picked up from his early years touring as a child prodigy in England (with his pushy, fortune hunting father) - and look at what it did for him! Please note that it is beyond question that nobody ever created music more spontaneously or rapidly or magnificently than Wolfgang - and we may safely assume to a large degree due to his consumption of this magical elixir.

Handel and Haydn spent much time also in England and imbibed large quantities of the same composition-inspring, ultra healthful, manly beverage. Need I say more?

I believe we may well profit from their brilliant and undeniable examples!

Spot of tea anyone? smile






Ahh, but it's a well known fact that Beethoven had his own personal turkish manservant that made the music master an hourly cup of strong brew in order to fuel his constant musical stream. And Franz Listz had a special piano made with a steam powered expresso nozzle that only worked when the master of chaos hit a very low b/c combination trill. Prokoviev had a special russian black coffee brew named after him, Schubert practically died from a exceptionally wild coffee binge and even Chopin, the master of piano masters, on his death bed lamented his stomachs inability to handle coffee declaring that "Had I only the ability to imbibe that manly brew I would have tripled my musical output and probably lived to be one hundred.!"

How about that for brilliant examples!!!

An injection of turkish coffee anyone? smile

I'm looking forward to it. I managed to miss the last one, which was just as well, since my piece was already covered. For this one, I've got a live recital recording of Bach's C major prelude from the Well-Tempered Clavier from December which I will follow up with my newly finished Invention No. 6.

[cue ominous music] Er.... is there a computer expert in the house? help

As y'all know, we moved the recital files to the PW servers because we had outgrown LaValse's old servers. There has been lots of work behind the scenes to get mahlzeit's program up and running on the new server, but Frank told me there are still some kinks that need to be worked out. One of our loyal PW members, sailwave, has been helping on a volunteer basis to try to get it all sorted out, but Frank thought that he might appreciate some help from somebody else given the time crunch.

So if we have a savvy programming person on board who has time in the next couple of days to help sailwave out, let me know and I'll PM you with details about hooking up with him and/or the guy who runs Frank's servers.

We have a volunteer already, Sam S., who has worked with mahlzeit's program in the past and is familiar with it. (Yay, Sam!) I'll keep y'all posted on how things are going. It is possible we may have to delay the opening of the recital for submissions a few days until things get straightened out, but I think--barring any unforeseen crisis--we should be good to go for the usual Feb. 15th unveiling.

Phew! I am sure y'all will be as relieved as I am to hear that, thanks to hours of unceasing programming toil on the part of LaValse and Sam, we're all set to open the recital as scheduled on February 1. thumb

So, no excuses, everybody: Press that Red Dot and get those recordings ready to submit. yippie

Hooray for everyones efforts. Monica, Sam, and LaValse.

The Karma from your good deeds and efforts will observed shortly in the form of an excellent recital performance along with an unusual lack of recording problems, stress, or flubs.

Unfortunately, the rest of us will probably suffer but that's because our nerves are not shot....yet!

After the hours of work you guys put in, you all get a recording stress immunity pass. (one per good deed only). You deserve it.

Well, I didn't do anything except send increasingly nervous PMs to the extent of "Is it fixed yet????" laugh LaValse and Sam did all the work, with the help of Frank and the guy who runs the PW servers. There's still a couple of things we need to work out, but the submission part is functional and will be up and going on the 1st.

Sometime on the 15th. The recital submission page has a countdown timer that you can watch as it ticks down.

Just a paddle? I always thought of the "Protector of the ABF Recital Entry Timeline" to be a little more aggressive, like an American Gladiator ready to swat any untimely entrants with an over sized q-tip:

*ahem* *ahem*

The PW member who thought he/she would be tricky (and you know who you are) and submit his/her recording before the official opening of the recital is out of luck. That recital you uploaded to was a test recital I was running to make sure the software was working properly. You will need to re-upload your piece once the real recital officially opens. [Monica K. looks stern and waves her gleaming silver oversized Q-tip around.]

Y'all will know when the recital is ready for submissions because I'll start a new thread telling you so.

Wow... my curiosity is piqued!! How would anyone even know how to find the test recital? Man, with legs like hers and that giant q-tip I would NOT want to upset Monica!!!

I am so not ready.. just realized that the recital is in... a couple of weeks. Gee. The only piece I may be able to play through right now is Rachmaninoff piece that I really need 6 fingers in each of my hands to play. It will be really amusing to record the video to show my hands but I cannot make that angle.


Pieces for this year to be decided soon.
