HOORAY!, A million mark and still climbing!!! I just knew I'd wake up to see we are here! Time flies when you're having a good time, and I continue having lots of fun here on RST!

Thanks to TJ for daring Rossy to get this started. Had it not happened I am not so sure I'd would have remained active with the PW. A speedy recovery to you TJ!!

I have a couple of offerings to mark this milestone for RST. My first post I posted last December. However, I think it's appropriate. Get out your dancing shoes and celebrate with Kool and the Gang!

My heartiest congrats to Rossy for his thread achieving more than one million views!!! PW is going to overflow soon smile

Sorry I'm getting too irregular with Rossy's thread (I'm afraid whether he has some punishments for me for bunking). I'm struggling with moonlight sonata again (this time with real keyboard smile ) and I'm getting almost mad because of my small hands frown

Anyway, I hope all our members here are well. Rossy, when is your new composition going to be published? I'm getting impatient.

Here is one of my favorite pianist playing a composition of his brother. I like this piece so much!

I love Kool & The Gang!

Here's the original Vicki Sue Robinson with Turn The Beat Around, in a later performance of this totally classic disco song. Vicki died in 2000.



And then another anthem: Lost In Music. Of course, Sister Sledge were the original performers, but I really rate The Fall's version (from The Infotainment Scam album) too. When I made mix-tapes, this was always the first song on the tape. Turn it up loud!

laugh Piano Joy, you have me cracking up! When you get to my age you'll be celebrating that you can still do a happy dance and drive the young-ins nuts with your boisterous music. Besides, dancing before breakfast is a healthy thing to do!

I'll bet Rossy can relate to how you're feeling about now. He's probably sighing with relief that I'm not doing my jazz stuff right now. wink

OMG, Griffin, EW&F are so funky. Get the horns! Get the bass!

Confession: I *still* covet my mum's EW&F album from the early 70s (when I was a teen), which I'm sure she never plays. I keep on wondering about sneaking it out, in a convenient 12" bag, every time I visit.

I really liked this Rupak! I can also relate to the struggles with piano practice. For me it's Clair de Lune. It's testing every ounce of my patience.

Rupak, I definitely agree with Griffin re practice. There's a kinda wall, often, and before you get over it you think 'impossible!', and sometimes you're about to give up, and then, usually, you somehow get over it. We're often working at the very edge of our abilities...

Magic everyone, sheer magic, lovely posts indeed.

Rupak, no worries, no punishment, just welcome!! Can you let us know what particular problems you are having with moonlight sonata, even for those with very small hands, there is usually a way.
Can you reach an octave without problems?
Let us know where the difficulty is , I am sure someone can help, dont be shy, thats what we are here for.

personally, I am struggling with that Dolly by Faure, it keeps going to exactly where I dont expect it to go to, just when I have got one bit right, I mess the next bit up.. this happens to everyone I know this, so am not worried.

The secondo part sounds easy, it doesnt look hard, but its like a tongue twister to me, in fact, thats the best way I can describe it, a tongue twister for my brain.

Thanks a lot Griffin, Eglantine and Rossy. All of your kind words really gave me new hope and energy. Yesterday I was really feeling hopeless, even though I know I need much more practice than I can do.

Yeah, I can reach an octave easily. But in the beginning section there is one note which is beyond an octave (I saw some people to use left hand crossing the right hand to play that, but technically that should be a stretch). That's where I face a lot of difficulties, though there are two more stretches where I don't have that much problems. And I'm always getting the feel that there is too much lack of expression. Anyway, I've to practice more. I'll rather record some of my practice and share with you so that you can understand my difficulties and correct me better. Thanks once again for your kind help!

Brilliant Rupak, I will look forward to that, I am sure you will get a lot of feedback and help and advice.
I am just going over to youtube to see when the last activity wayne did there was.
I will message him there and see if he picks up.
later dudes and dudettes.

Rupak, are we talking about the 3rd movement, bars 9-14 here?
Redistribution is often used, hitting the A in RH but it's the LH 3rd finger on E that's the problem more than the ninth. Until my hand was comfortable with the stretch I used the thumb on the E and the A. It didn't seem to slow me down any more than the F# above it in RH.

Sometimes, just sometimes, one is left thinking "Yeh, righty oh then" OR, "This is going to end badly"

I just copied some of this story from yahoo mail, I wondered why the ships that are in the vicinity of the stricken oil/gas platform are keeping extremely well away.... this may explain things:

The company tackling a serious gas leak on a North Sea platform is playing down fears that a lit flare could ignite and cause an explosion.

Total says the flare was left alight on the evacuated Elgin platform because there wasn't time to turn it off when staff were airlifted off.

The company says the flame is still burning above the flammable gas beneath it but the wind is blowing the gas away from the flame.

It insists that safety considerations in the design of the platform mean there are 70m separating the flare from the leaking gas.

Bruce Lawson, asset integrity manager with Total , told Sky News: "We evacuated the platform because safety of our personnel was our prime concern and the fact that the flare remains to burn was not a concern at that time.

Does it really take a lot of imagination to add "serious gas leak" to "Lit flare" and come up with "F in massive explosion"

or is it just me?

Greetings, one and all.

What levity we've all had today and what a variegated selection of jollities and niceties.

While the bubbles subside from your fizzy pops and the party hat droops awkwardly over one ear as you slump exhaustedly into your armchair dragging the antimacassar into the wing as an extemporaneous pillow, here's a little of Uncle Louis to ease you into the tranquillity of night.

After the over-three-minutes introduction from Marvin Gaye, pointed to by Eglantine, here's a slightly longer one, a little over three and half minutes, filled with expectation and anticipation.

After a few brief chords in the tonic A major modulating gently to the dominant (00:30) we hear the pitter-patter of rising semiquavers leading to the unexpected key of C. Now we know we have a little expedition before we reach the tonic key and the movement proper can get underway but each step seems to take us further away until at 1:20 we can feel the introduction coming to a close.

Just a bit more...

Any moment now...

But it's not until we reach 3:00 that the home key is imminent and at 3:20 we're on absolute tenterhooks like the prolonged radio silence at the end the Apollo 13 mission. And even then, he ekes out just a little more suspense until finally the home key arrives in a gloriously sweet melody that wrings tears from the eyes in a Lassie Comes Home moment - in spades. And it's not until 4:00 that he finally establishes it as the first subject. Someone, please, pass the tissues!

Whew! Powerful stuff!

I wanted to link to a version by H von Karajan as he's an absolute master at this sort of thing but this one will do.

Sweet dreams all.

Rossy, I'm not keen on your counting system (one, too, many :))

But here's a piece in similar vein to make a fourth.



PS Loved your two left hands comment in Cas's post!

this is an amazing achievement, 21 albumns, thats twenty one albumns for the band "sparks" and what do they do to be different?

They do a tour where they play the songs from a different albumn every night, a 21 date tour, each date music from a different one of their albumns..... how darn tough is that?

anyways, this video explains that, and then they sing this town aint big enough for the both of us, showing they still got it!!!

Also, check out the name on Ronalds keyboards... made me laugh.

Thanks for your selections, people.

On a jag of 'bands that have been under-appreciated by the record-buying public', I'd like to mention World Party.

World Party is essentially a one-man project of Welshman Karl Wallinger. First album in the late 80s, several albums in the 90s. The one I acquired first, and am therefore most in love with, having played it to death over an extended time, is Goodby Jumbo, his second album.

Goodbye Jumbo is a beautiful album of wall-to-wall thoughtful pop, with ne'er a sliver of filler in sight. Yes, you can probably spot some of his influences, but they are all good, and he reaches far beyond them in his wonderfully crafted songs.

People who know his music love his work. But the rest of the world seems to remain in blissful ignorance. I picked up Goodbye Jumbo for about 99p new from the remainder bin in some record store around Wardour Street back in the day. I then acquired some of the rest of his catalogue similarly.


Anyway, here is one of those tunes from Goodbye Jumbo:








Currently working on: F. Couperin - Preludes & Sweelinck - Fantasia Chromatica
J.S. Bach, Einaudi, Purcell, Froberger, Croft, Blow, Frescobaldi, Glass, Couperin
1930s upright (piano) & single manual William Foster (harpsichord)
