Hi all!

I was planning to visit "Duestos da Sé" restaurant this Saturday, but I was advised to stay away from the Lisbon center because there were +120.000 spanish tourists that invaded the city and all the main bars and restaurants. It was impossible to use the regular transport facilities and the traffic was chaotic... It's great to have a final UEFA match in Lisbon, but...........

Therefore, our meeting to discuss the last details was postponed to another day. But, do not stress because everything is booked, and I'm sure we'll have a great time. I look forward to meeting you all in person!

Meanwhile, here it is another website about Lisbon. For those who doesn't want to stay all the afternoon with the pianists (family or friends), check for the Alfama neighborhood because it's perfect for a short walk, and "Duetos da Sé" it's inside Alfama.

Alfama: http://www.lisbonlux.com/lisbon/alfama.html
Duetos da Sé: http://www.lisbonlux.com/lisbon-cafes/duetos-da-se.html


As usual, if you have any update or question regarding with Lisbon or EPP, please ask me.

Chris that's great! Now you are set! Yippee!

Carlos that's great information.
For those who aren't sure what they want to see and how much it costs here is a comparison page:
http://www.thelisbonlife.com/saving-money-with-discount-tour-cards-in-lisbon/

I'm trying to find time to make a suggested itinerary, with the costs to evaluate if , for what we are interested in , the Lisbon card is worth getting.

Carlos - is there still the option to get the 7 collinas card for 3 days at a cost of 10.50? I couldn't find confirmation for that. It seems to me that now they have a day pass for 6 euros.

That website of LisbonLux is great, Carlos. Nice overview of all museums. What a heritage Lisbon has. Didn't know there was so much to see.

Chris, that's great! And yes, Lisbon is a lovely city and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
Now, we only have to wait for Ganddalf and Nikolas. And for Wouter D'hoye, too.

About the tickets:
In the Carris site I found this information (in english): http://www.carris.pt/en/support-cards/
and this PDF - "Find the right ticket":
http://www.carris.pt/fotos/editor2/desdobravel_ocasionais_uk_fev_2014.pdf

But, as the information is not too clear - at least for me... - I will call Carris services to get some support regarding with the best option for you.

During your researches/plans keep in mind that:
- CARRIS is the BUS and TRAM company (www.carris.pt): to travel inside Lisbon (including hills zone)
- METRO is the SUBWAY company (www.metro.pt): to travel inside Lisbon (excluding hills zone)
- CP is the TRAIN company (www.cp.pt): to travel to Cascais, Sintra (suburbane lines), or to other regions in Portugal (north, Algarve, ...)
- TRANSTEJO is the BOAT company. (www.transtejo.pt): to cross the Tejo River; access to beaches.

I recommend this site (transpolis) where you can get an idea of the transportation inside Lisbon, and do some route calculations:
http://www.transporlis.sapo.pt/Default.aspx?tabid=36&language=en-GB


And now, here is the updated list of participants.

Hi EPP members!
I'm doing an update to the list, because my friend HBejinha, won't come to our Piano Party... He tried to organize his vacations to be in Lisbon on day 5 July, but this will not be possible.

So, we have 10 pianists, and 8 guests.

As you know the minimum number of persons to rent the restaurant is 20. Don't worry, I'm figuring out what to do...
Nikolas and Ganddalf: have you booked your flight?
Wouter D'hoye: are you with us?

[Linked Image]


And what about our program? Any update????
[Linked Image]

As usual, if you need any help about your trip to Lisbon, just ask me!
Regards,
Carlos

LOL good question!:)
You will see, and understand, the typical way how Portuguese people solve "problems". Have you ever heard the word: "Desenrascanço"?

Saramago won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1998. His writing is not very easy to understand, but I recognize that he is very imaginative and unique. Good choice!

Well, I asked Nikolas about the EPP, and he replayed me saying that he won't come to our party this year. He's very sorry and he expect to be present next year.

So, here it is the updated list.
[Linked Image]

About the number "20":
I have some friends that may want to join us. They are/were amateur pianists too, so I'm sure they are within the spirit of our EPP. That means, I'm going to start doing some contacts soon, so we can reach the number of 20 (or more) persons. I'm not saying that we'll have more "pianists" with us - unless my friends want to play, which I doubt -, but, at least, we'll have some guests that can appreciate our show - I believe they still know the meaning of a "broken chord" smile -.

I've read several of his works in the past, not an easy reading but really worthwhile!

Sorry to hear of Nikolas of course. Sounds fun inviting friends, Carlos. Everything will be fine.

Actually it is just a little over 1 month to go, casinitaly. I just bought a new suitcase today ... I'm pumped.

We will have in fact a bit more time between us each and a have a very nice number amongst us now. I was wondering about the format. But, maybe preliminary (I can wait) until working out more pressing matters.

Greener, you're right... I don't know where my brain was last night!

Carlos, if you have friends who are keen to share a piano event with us, that would be lovely!

As for the program, I don't know if anyone has a specific plan in mind...apart from the fact that we'll have lunch, then play piano.
...hey, who knows, maybe some will play piano DURING lunch.

(actually I was thiking that maybe over the lunchtime could be a good time to "test" the piano and get a feel for it - and maybe to practice playing the duets together in person.....)

When we had the party in Brussels, the bravest person played first : that was SwissMS who played before we went to lunch.

After lunch we played one piece each, in no specific order, except that the most experienced player ..by a LONG stretch! smile (PatH) waited until all of us had played before he sat down to play.

After that we played randomly and spontaneously.... a bit of improvisation (very little smile ) and even some singing in rounds.
We were at Saranoya's apartment and at the time she had no neighbours around so we played pretty much non-stop from about 2pm to 7pm.

Before hand, none of us had said which pieces we were going to play. The inclusion of a list of planned pieces in this thread is new, and certainly not written in stone.

Everyone brought a certain amount of music (those travelling by train brought a lot of books!) -- I suspect there will be less of that this time around as most of us are flying in and baggage weight restrictions are pretty tight.

Apart from planned pieces, I'll bring a book of simple jazz/blues duets and some others that I've had around for a while, and probably one of my books of classic pieces, maybe a few smaller ones.

So I'm not saying that what we did in Brussels makes the program written in stone, but what seemed to be important to everyone was that a) the order wasn't written down, you could play when your gut and emotions said you were ready smile and b) the more experienced folks played after the less experienced.

Since the Tchaikovsky Impromptu, I have not learned new solo piano pieces. So I'm planning to polish it a bit and perform it in Lisbon. But it's a physically demanding piece, and I've already noticed that not playing it for a few weeks has considerably worsened my rendition of it. So right now I'd say: The odds are 80% that I will play the Tchaikovsky Impromptu op.1/2 in Lisbon.

Whether I play other pieces will depend on how much music everybody is going to play.


Everything is possible, and nothing is sure.

Some thoughts about the "program".
The program appears because I started to take note of the pieces that we were talking in several occasions here in PW (ABF recitals, AOTW, PMs, etc). There is no obligation to enter a piece in the list, or to play a "mandatory" piece just because it's on the program, or, to play ONLY the pieces you have announced. This is only a list to share our thoughts about what we want to play and to help to understand the musical style of each one. Nothing more.
We all have an idea of what we want to play in Lisbon. So, if you want to share your idea, I'll put it on the list. If you don't, that's OK, too. thumb

[Linked Image]


About the format, I think the best rule is: "there is no rules" smile
We have a piano just for us, and an unique audience, so let's play!
The only concern is to give the same opportunity to all the members, I mean, if you notice that I'm getting "lost" with my Einaudis, please tear me from the front of the piano, OK? - beware about my memory! - smile

Now seriously, if we have to have a "guide" I think the EPP2013 model is fine.

Have a nice weekend!

To be honest, I'm still not 100% set on what I am even going to play frown so I'm kind of hoping that people are willing to improvise and just "go with the flow".

Since I play mostly by ear, something could just spark some inspiration and all sorts of fun could be had... that goes for anyone I guess .

UKIkarus go with the flow is fine. I don't know how much improv others can do, - my own abilities are rather weak in that area - but it will be fun to see what happens!

Improvisation...? Well, that's quite challenging!
With so many - and so good! - pianists at the party, I'm sure that something will happen. And I'll be there to watch! Hahaha

Oh, haha yeah sorry... my improvisational skills are very very lacking! I was simply trying to say that I'm hoping when we all play, it doesn't turn out too strict and rather more relaxed smile as in I hope myself and others are willing to give new things a try and simply enjoy the time spent no matter what happens.

Having never seen anyone who plays any form of instrument around here (apart from my teacher) the idea of meeting a group of like minded folks is VERY exciting!

Preference towards a less structured approach, sounds great. I think we will all naturally save our presentation piece as our Ace in the Pocket for when everyone is well settled in and feeling comfortable in presenting it and allow things to naturally develop.

Please excuse my anxiousness. This will be the largest audience I have played for since ... well ... ever laugh . Of course, I've read all about LIVE performance anxiety, but have never experienced it.

Bring it on ... I've got some stuff I'd really like to share ... provided I don't freeze ... smile

Hi people.

It's been a while since I checked in here. But I wanted to let you all know I won't be able to make it. My employer needs me elsewhere that time. Part of the job. I hope you all have a great time. Maybe I'll make it next year.

have fun.

Wouter.

Wouter - sorry you won't be able to attend - let's hope for next year!!

UKIkarus - it IS exciting to hook up with like minded people!!!

Greener: It is rather nerve wracking -- -but as we say for the recitals, you couldn't possibly find a more supportive audience -ever!

Last year I felt really disappointed with my performance at the party - this year I think I am better prepared both in terms of my musical skills and emotionally.

I am SO up about this event!!! woohoo!

I love keeping up on all the plans for the EPP and I know you'll have a great time. Looking forward to reading all about it and I hope to see pictures.

Carlos you have the makings of a good travel agent, wish I could be there with everyone. Maybe next time.

Bet everyone is counting the days, EPP is just around the corner.

UKIkarus and Greener, the party is very relaxed and everybody is happy to see each other. The party has less structure and is less formal about when and what to play then the recitals my teacher has.

Wouter, too bad you can't come. Next year it will be Italy, I think.

Musdan, yes we will make a lot of photo's. And of course some video's (if it's allowed by the player, because it adds to the nerves).

One month to go!
