Of course, I appreciate and respect your feelings.

It was just a suggestion - but one I've thought about making for several months - and now I've done it. ha

How many wives do you have?


Every day we are afforded a new chance. The problem with life is not that you run out of chances. In the end, what you run out of are days.

I noticed. Did you get involved with too many "tea party" events to participate?

Hear, hear. Couldn't agree more. First I was intrigued by the subject of the post. Then I took the trouble to go to all the timings he so carefully laid out for us. Then I looked at them again because at first I couldn't see anything I could remotely call a swindle. Then I saw at the very last 1/2 second his left hand stops before his right. That I didn't hear anything lacking either says something about the video's audio, my hearing, or simply that it's still Chopin's lovely music even if 1/2 second of 1/2 the hands in use don't play about 4 or 5 notes.

Virtuosity is a thrill, but not as an end of itself. This piano world of ours has gotten too enamored of virtuosity and it seems at the price of the music. imho, of course

Just for the record grin ....I think it's just 2 notes! (I think he omits only the G and A, maybe also the preceding F.)
