Thanks for all the postings Richard - we were listening to different piano versions of the Danse Macabre a few days ago and its a really stirring and descriptive piece.

When we did the Met recordings I was surprised by how much non piano related work was needed - such as getting to grips with technical equipment and locating a good piano to play on. It is a lot of work but I found it ultimately satisfying.
For the Satie, I've found it really enlightening to record my practice runs. Often when I think I've conveyed a particular aspect of the music, I find that in reality it hasn't come across as I'd intended, and I can learn from that.

Yes, I play a lot of the Cramer version of Danse Macabre. I won't be able to finish the Liszt version in my lifetime but I am toying with the idea, now that I've got a handle on the recording issues, of submitting DM in a later ABF recital. I don't know how long it would take to finish it and my plate seems to be filling faster than I can eat!

I've learned a lot already from my Fauré piece. I think my foot got glued to the pedal in one or two places (he says without mentioning the length of those places!) and an ancient digital doesn't convey the problem until you hear the phrasing or lack thereof. I think it may take me a while to sort that out so I'll leave the current submission and hope not too many notice. I think they're kind listeners on ABF recitals! smile

Richard, I loved Gounod's Faust ballet, great scene! We’ve posted little ballet music, and we should do it more often.

Btw, I’ve also been seeing the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, indeed the race was exciting!

Helen, glad you also like Shostakovich’s music. I think you play the second movement of that piano concerto, am I right?

Marvelous selections, Richard thumb Thanks so much! John Rutter's Pie Jesu is indeed a touching piece. The starting of Gounod's Faust was perfect to carry through the peaceful mood, but its frightening climax was quite unexpected smile And Danse Macabre was a perfect choice for a dramatic finishing to this week's Sunday Classical programs. Excellent!

Richard, I was so excited to see your entry in this month's ABF recital! I've already had a listen to the piece you've selected, it's a beautiful piece! Can't wait till November 15 to enjoy your performance. Also, it'd be an overwhelming experience how you could manage to play bagpipes with piano, I'm sure Wayne will appreciate it a lot wink laugh

Recaredo, I loved Shostakovich’s Waltz II very much! I was introduced to Shostakovich for the first time by PPP a long time ago, he posted a video on Shostakovich’s use of 'theremin' in his film score. At that time there was quite a bit of discussions on theremin at RST smile

Griffin, Rubinstein's performance of Rachmaninoff's 18th variation is absolutely charming! I don't listen to Rachmaninoff so much because his works seem too difficult for me to understand, but this piece really moved me, for the first time!

Recaredo - yes I've 'played' the 2nd movement of Shostakovich's 2nd piano concerto. Its so beautiful and only about grade 6 and quite slow (if it wasn't that level I wouldn't have attempted it)

I'd recommend it to anyone!

I've just come to know about your injury Becca, it's really regretful frown I'll miss you so much in this recital, you were so enthusiastic about it frown Wish you a very quick recovery, I'm sure you'll be able to join upcoming RST recitals with more energy. Take care.

Hey everybody!

Don't have much time to post.. It's one of those days where I have a million things that all have to be done today. On the bright side, I took off work for a week and a half, and it's my first day off. So I will have plenty of time to post and polish off my Satie, and hopefully submit it in the next week.

I heard this gorgeous Henry Purcell work on my way to work yesterday, and wanted to post it. I was hoping I could find it broken down into movements(there's 8 of them), but couldn't find a complete set in my quick search. It's called The Gordian Knot Untied.

For those of you who might not know what a Gordian Knot is (like me), here's a link to Wikipedia.



Anyway, here's Victor Khachatryan conducting the National Chamber Orchestra of Armenia.

Just wondering what with halloweener and everything, when you scare the "beejeezus" out of someone.... what does the beejeezus actually look like?

How do you know how much beejeezus someone has in them before you attempt to scare it out of them?

also if you scare the beejeezus out of some one how does it get back inside them so you can scare it out a second time ?

if you scared the beejeezus out of two people at once say ( by hiding in their wardrobe dressed like a dwarf and painted green and smelling of halibut and then jumping out at them in the dark shouting "kitty litter")

would there be two times the amount of beejeezus knocking around?

would this potential double beejeezus try and amalgamate into one large beejeezus.

these are the thoughts that occupy my brain sometimes.

Maybe when you scare the beejeezus out of someone you get the beejeezus until someone scares it out of you. That way it just passes along from one person to the next. wink

I seem to have plenty of beejeezus being rather jumpy. Hmm maybe someone would like some of mine?


Thanks Rupak. smile I'm taking the time to work on my basics while I heal so hopefully I'll come back with stronger skills smile Meanwhile I will enjoy everyone's performances.

More Purcell’s music: His amazingly beautiful Chaconne for strings in g minor.

I remember when I was a teen, I couldn’t stop listening to this piece.

Good morning everyone! It's been a bit quiet around here lately. I'm still working on my Satie piece, and enjoying it. I do appreciate getting a bit more time to make improvements before performance time, however. I'm hoping to get some real quality practice time in this weekend.

I thought I'd share a little blues before heading to work. Here is Chicago blues artist Magic Sam (R.I.P.) with "All of Your Love".

Nice to see your posts, Griffin! Enjoy your day too!


Over here it has been raining all the week, and more rain is expected for the weekend. This looks like Wales smile. And now I have no piano, it got some issues and I had to send it to dealer’s workshop to be repaired. Fortunately I already submitted my Gnossienne for Satie recital.

So probably I’ll listen to a lot of music this weekend. How about starting with Vivaldi’s operas? The Venetian master wrote splendid operas. There’s on Youtube a video about a recording of “Bajazet”, which can give an idea about the musical richness of these works. In this video all the singers are fantastic and the opera is conducted by Fabio Biondi. I love this violinist.
